I'm going to this tomorrow (Saturday):
Capture The Flag: LIVE SHOOT w/ Joseph Gordon-Levitt - YouTube
Any fellow mu-43 shooters want to come with me? You can register on your own, or you can come with me as my plus-one.
Details: supposed to start in the early afternoon and running 4-5 hours...
I have actually used LR4 to perform quick edits to video when I don't want to bother importing into a video editor. I learned a trick online somewhere that lets you do Develop adjustments that the software doesn't explicitly allow you to do. You can create a still from the video, then use...

Okay, here is where I had to put mine, to be accessible to my Lightroom. YMMV.
From the hard disk root:
Users/my username/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/CameraProfiles
I'm running Snow Leopard and Lightroom 4.3.
I found that I had to put them in a different folder than the one specified in the install doc. Do a search on your ENTIRE Mac hard drive for "Adobe Standard" and see where that is located. If that doesn't work, I'll try to remember to look where I have them stashed on my computer when I get home.
Let's bring the kids! I've got a 5-year old. I was planning to bring him to the Getty, but I can just as easily bring him to LACMA. He was fascinated by the Metropolis II piece. I made a video of it with my GH2 when it opened a while back:

Actually, Pasadena might not be a bad choice. There's the Huntington, but there is also the Norton Simon which is currently hosting the Van Gogh self-portrait. The N-S is right near Old Town where there is plenty to eat and lots of ops for street photography. There's also the Pacific Asia...
If you are shooting in AVCHD mode then the movies are stored in MTS format in a different directory.
If you are shooting M4V or MOV then they should be in the same folder with the JPEGs.
I'm going to a private dance/concert where some of my friends in a jazz combo will be playing. I'll probably be able to get quite close to the band. At most I want to bring two lenses. It will be quite dark in the venue. I have a GH2. Here are my "fast lens" choices, in order of max aperture...
I agree with this. I brought my GH2 to the Hollywood Bowl once, not even realizing they would have camera restrictions (which they did - no cameras with detachable lenses, period). They forced me to check my camera in with security, so I had nothing during the show. I wouldn't take that risk.
So I'm thinking, how many people actually take portraits at f/1.8? I mean, it's great if you're going for that particular look of razor-thin DOF, but if I was a paying customer I'm not sure I would be happy if one eye was in focus and the other was not because my head was slightly tilted. And...
Just got this lens. Still exploring it.

With mu4/3 the closest you can get is to use an Eye-Fi wireless card.
Here's a blog series about it.
Introduction to Wireless Workflow with Micro 4/3rds Cameras | Small Camera BIG Picture
My husband uses this method (roughly) and finds it quite satisfactory for his needs.
I think I can safely say that I've never bought a piece of camera gear without first justifying my need for it. In most cases, I found that I had outgrown the capabilities of my current camera and that the photography techniques that I wanted to explore were simply not possible with my current...
Hello again and thanks to everyone who participated in this challenge! I was very pleased to see a variety of interpretations of the theme. And now, without further ado:
BLUE RIBBON GOES TO: LeoS (rainbow among the hills)
What made this photo stand out to me was the juxtaposition of old and...
The problem with shooting in full sun is that the camera tries to compensate for the bright bits .... it tries to pull the entire scene average down to 18% gray. This will make all of the shadow areas quite dark. The fact that you used increased contrast probably exacerbated the issue.
I would like to see your interpretation of the theme "Ephemeral." I'm going to buck the rules a little bit and NOT post example images since I don't want to put ideas into anyone's heads. Think carefully and be original ... surprise me.

So sorry for the delay responding, but I have been having an action-packed family weekend and just got to my computer now (10 pm Sunday). I'm honored! Will get on with announcing the next competition post haste!
My son after loosing a tooth:

GH2 with 45mm/f.1.4
I've not had any experience with this myself, but I've read several responses from "pro" street photogs. Often they have mentioned carrying around business cards and handing them out, showing a portfolio of their work, as well as offering to provide copies of prints.
I've been a bit unhappy with my Spyder as well. I have two monitors and I can calibrate them one right after the other, and they both look different afterwards. I don't know if it's because one monitor is external LCD and the other is Macbook Pro, or what, but they are definitely different.
My DH being a VERY BAD EXAMPLE to our 5-year old son at Grand Canyon:

I use the long end of the 14-140mm A LOT. I can't see myself giving it up.
I don't NEED to sell any lenses to fund this purchase. I'm just trying to figure out how it would fit in and when I would use it. Wondering what other people use it for. Landscapes? Indoor candids of people?
Just FYI: I rented the 7-14mm wide-angle for my recent trip to the Grand Canyon, and while it was fun, and very appropriate for that trip, I don't see myself getting that lens or any dedicated wide-angle lens. It's not my style.
I have a friend coming from Japan in about a month. I could ask him to bring me a 12-35mm. It's running about $925 in US dollars with the current exchange rate. My husband owes me ... he just spent nearly $2000 on HIS hobby, without telling me first ... should I get it?
I have a GH2 and an...
