its always amuzing when someone (passive agressive) labels a post which presents facts as "sad" ... unless they're saying they're sad that their unsupportable pre-conceptions are challenged by evidence. Like I've been saying Sad should go and people should have the capacity for actual engagement...
another post of perhaps interest
in my view ...: as Computer Camera and Phone gradually intersect
and also (as I understand it) the iPhone 5 and 6 (but not the 6plus) share cameras, so:
in my view ...: Oppo F1 vs iPhone 5s - picture quality
if you upgrade phones you'll find that at...
I'd 100% agree with that. If I didn't have a compact m43 camera (say I only had a GH3 or EM1 or something SLR-alike) I'd be very tempted by the 12-40 as its now well priced enough to seriously consider.
Its just that I'm sure it's not going to keep my compact m43 compact ...
be the same...
I'm sorry you got suckered into buying a thing like that .. no wonder you don't think much of phone cameras.
I compared my AU$250 Oppo phone with my GF-1 here:
in my view ...: modern Phones as cameras
and the Oppo was a mid ranger back in 2016 ...
Something nobody has mentioned in backups is the need for a differential backup took in Windows. I can't speak for Mac as I wouldn't own one, but it's time machine is handy.
However one needs to keep a history of backups (as mentioned because virus alert is always just the canary) and so stuff...
yep ... but did you like the video?
I've used nothing other than common sense (don't open sus attachments, don't go to sus sites) and windows defender (cos like I'm fukken stuck with that anway) and I've not had any virus on my computer since the 90's
What I love about my camera and lens combo is that it enables me to take great images of places, events, stuff or just simply be creative. I love that its compact and I love that it cost so little that I'm totally willing to take it everywhere. I love that its about the most sophisticated and...
yes, that's what I meant. Weirdly many people seem to say "going up" when its a fraction so a change from 125 to 500 is less time, but people seem to me to call that going up (probably forgetting that its going down)
well to me all the modes are valid methods on "how it was intended to be used" ... none specifically more compellingly "right".
that may be, but for me I find them quite constraining. I prefer to look and think about what my needs are, this often doesn't take more than fractions of a...
I like it too, but have not really taken to the modes. I just take the shots using M (and of course selecting the WB I want and the ISO I want manually too), although I often take 3 or 4 portrait orientations depending what I want in width, almost makes my GF-1 + P20 a Full Frame kit ;-)
sorry ... wasn't trying to rub your nose in it. I've noted that many people actually think that the GWC-1 changes the P14 to be somehow a slower lens. I've not measured transmission ... which isn't a bad experiment now that I think about it.
Nice shots, reminds me of Joensuu Finland, built on a river and also very Scandinavian influenced of course. I lived there for a while.
Try Snapseed on a good mid tablet. Much truer colours than any laptop.
I somehow skipped this bit of the post when first reading ... I don't mind what people do to their pictures ;-)
However I do mind when lazy slack city visitors change their nappy on the side of the road and leave all the shitty mess behind
PS: @ektar this is actually a pretty good showing of...
that's what thew me
This is a shot I took of a mate of mine who really knows how to "hunt" his BMW boxer
Missing in the EXIF is FD300f4
I'm not sure it looks the same as in Gnarlys shot, but it does show the sort of grass ... but I'll go up there for some shots after coffee
I don't think you need to do much there to get the grass to look like that. It's a very lush area atop a ridge which is about the highest in that ridge line, this throughout the year it doesn't dry.
The species there is like a huge version of couch grass.
I'll take a quick ride up there today...
Test it and see for your self
My cameras are CDAF , but historically circ was introduced to deal with half mirror issues in metering, not AF. My EOS cameras (only PDAF) worked perfectly with linear.
Nullius in verba - Wikipedia
or even linear polarizers ... which are cheaper and actually make no difference for m43 camers vs circular
However for reflections with the glass at 90deg to the plane (vs at a tangent) they make no difference ... but I assume you also knew that too
Uses include combinations with GWC-1 and GFC-1.
I like that I can twist the adapter off simply when I want just 14
It's light and fast to work with, I probably use it more than my 12-32.
in my view ...: Panasonic 0.79 adapter on camera
interesting ... I don't know why the G10 would be on the list, its inferior to the G1 and doesn't have any special cachet...
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 Quick Review
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10 is (with the G2) the latest of Panasonic's pioneering G-series mirrorless system cameras. The G10 is a...
yet this is precisely what I did for decades back when I was using film and have carried through to Digital. I used an EOS630 (look it up) which had as good an AF tracking as the EOS-1 (except far fewer sensors so you had to know where and ust them) USM lenses for sports and TS-E lenses for...
yes, when the GH2 came out I was largely unimpressed by the "step up" and felt that the "Hack" installed on my GH1 (which I didn't end up doing cos its sufficient for my needs) put it ball park.
The move away from a multi aspect sensor was to me a step back and then the unforgivable descent...
I got the G1 when it was first released, thought it was fantastic, stood shoulder to shoulder with my EOS 20D and was sharper than the early Oly offerings. I think highly of my GH-1 and GF-1 too
Personally I suspect the lenses people picked to save money.
