    Members from 2009 and 2010 Reunion. Drop a line!

    Joined on January 26, 2010 when I was shooting with an Oly E-P1. That was followed by a Lumix G2, G3, and GF-3. The G3 was recently sold, the G2 was inherited by my son, and the E-P1 has been relegated to the cupboard. The GF-3 (with the 20mm 1.7) still sees some action as my "pocketable"...

    9-18mm, 45mm and 14mm are still available. I have reduced prices. Since the G3 is gone, I am now highly motivated to sell the rest. Reasonable offers will be carefully considered. Cheers, Antonio

    'Kodak Ektar 100: Another Good Film'

    These are phenomenally good scans. I also have an Epson V500 and my scans from color negatives are nowhere near as good. I am using the Epson Scan software that came with the scanner. Would you mind sharing your scanning workflow with us? It would be most appreciated. Thank you, Antonio

    Your First Camera

    PanaLeica 45mm - Disappointed

    I did some tests on mine and found out that it is razor sharp in the center at all apertures, but a bit soft in the corners wide open. It sharpens up when you close it, but you need to close it down to 7.1 before the corners are as sharp as the center. I posted about it at Serious Compacts...

    Silver Efex Pro 2 Question

    If I may add my 2 cents, I will second BBs opinion that Silver Efex is simply superb. I use mine through PS CS5. Buy it; you will not regret it.

    Canon FD same as EOS EF?

    No. They are two completely different mounts. Canon EF is the current mount for Canon autofocus lenses. There are no mechanical linkages; communication between camera and lens is fully electronic. Canon FD is the legacy mount. There are no autofocus FD lenses (except the ones developed for the...

    Wireless Flash Image thread

    Kevin, You need to tape over the extra terminals and set your 580EX to M. Otherwise, it will not fire. So far, I have not fried the camera or the ST-E2. Regards, Antonio

    ISO 100 and Dynamic Range of Lumix G2

    When I first acquired my Oly E-P1, I remember reading advice from (I believe) Brian Mosley and others to the effect that ISO 100 on the E-P1 was more limited as to dynamic range, and therefore ISO 200 should be used as a base ISO. I have followed that advice. Upon buying the G2, I have...

    Olympus E-P2 at Amazon with 17/2.8 - $510

    What a difference a year makes. This is exactly what I paid for my used E-P1 with the 14-42 kit lens last December.

    Canon EOS lens adapter with aperture included.

    I am curious as to why they state it may not work with certain lenses such as the 10-22. Otherwise, looks like a good solution to using EF lenses on m4/3. Regards, Antonio

    Hence the description "quick and dirty." Easy enough fix (paint the portion of the mask corresponding to the missing arm back in) but not worth it (IMO) in a low res file. Like I said, if Icon sends me full size files, I'll be glad to do a more precise job. Regards, Antonio

    A favour;-)

    Quick and dirty: I'll be happy to do a more precise job if you send me full res files. To do it right, I would have to resize the picture of your brother, as he is obviously not as small as he looks in the composite. Regards, Antonio

    How do you like your G2?

    I like mine just fine. The camera handles quite well and the image quality is top notch. It has put my E-P1 into temporary retirement. Likes: 1. Quicker focusing than the E-P1, particularly in low light. 2. Command wheel in the back actually works very well. 3. Very nice integrated EVF. 4...

    Am I the only guy happy with my G2

    Even though I have only owned it for a couple of months, I really enjoy my G2. I get the feeling, though, that it has not been the runaway success for Panasonic that the GF-1 was, and there are far fewer G2 users around. Or maybe G2 users are a quieter bunch... Cheers, Antonio

    The Best Deal in Micro Four Thirds

    What I find interesting is that, even though it is not quite the same smoking deal, the price of the G2 has also declined significantly. The last time I checked, it could be bought for $549 at B&H, which is significantly less than the original $799 asking price. This, for a camera that has not...

    Threaded Canon lenses

    As far as I know, the only Canon SLRs which used threaded lenses were the EXEE and EX Auto from the late 60s and early 70s. In both bodies, the rear lens elements were integrated into the body; only the front lens elements were interchangeable. They made 4 interchangeable front lens assemblies...
