    Thinking of getting rid of my EM1's... Thoughts?

    The difficulty of panning with C-AF is that if the subject is going towards you...... that challenge just gets even more challenging for many mirrorless. Side to side panning is more forgiving but still not that easy with obstacles. I've been reading up a little on my friend's D500 compared to...

    Thinking of getting rid of my EM1's... Thoughts?

    Gryphon, There really isn't any arguments that the Nikon D5 is a beast and it's sibling D500 crop sensor body follows the same performance traits. For low light fast action there is no substitution for a DSLR at this moment in time. I'm a canon shooter and there is a huge void in high...

    Thinking of getting rid of my EM1's... Thoughts?

    In any type of action photography it's a matter of timing and methodical "spray" with rapid fire fps. Autofocus is so critical to get those money shots. Pro application with a proven body is a tool of choice. D500 is an AF beast with incredible high iso performance needed to keep up the shutter...

    Fuji X-T20

    Sounds like the X-T20 will have similar high iso performance as the X-T2. The X-T2 has been compared to the Nikon D500 and they are both potent crop sensor bodies. My X-T2 actually has impressed me in run/gun video AF for Fuji's first attempt in serious video features. Certainly nothing like the...

    The Camera Store says Panasonic beats Olympus in JPEGs

    I thought the iphone 7 was the only "camera" that was no locked in the kelvin settings. I was under the impression all of the camera's were locked in a specific kelvin number...... check 11:42 in the video. He states all camera's were locked at 3400 Kelvin except the iphone 7

    Anyone have a Fuji X-T1 with E-M1?

    I use the newer body smaller brother of the bodies called the X-T10 (Also own the X-E2 with new firmware ver 4 making it equivalent to the brand new X-E2s) . AF is virtually identical to the X-T1. I'm certain you did not use a Fuji X-T2 ? X-pro2? That 24 megapixel body has AF in the league...

    Micro 4/3 or move to new system

    I think a question you should ask yourself is the exact uses for your camera and also future applications. Just remember to try to select the lenses that suite your application and style. The beauty of the camera world is that you can always buy the updated version down the road. If your going...

    Your very fortunate to play with all this gear. Every lens I own with I.S. has that feature "ON". I sure like to have it too. I have a 4, 7 and 10yrs old and I know the advantages of IBIS and fast shutter speeds. The newbies or readers that are grasping the technicalities of camera gear/usage...

    Micro 4/3 or move to new system

    It is very obvious you have never used the 18-55 f/2.8-4.0 stabilized kit lens. Until you use a new 24mpx fuji or even a newer gen 16mpx fuji body you cannot say bullocks. If I never tested and owned one myself I would have probably said the same as you..... Many real users that own both do not...

    Micro 4/3 or move to new system

    Since your open minded and willing to explore other alternatives you should seriously rent or borrow. This will give you alot more hands on "gut feel" of a system as you go home to post process. Chimping and analyzing photos on the back of the LCD screen will not allow you to get a feel of the...

    Hey Amin what camera bodies do you actually own???? All of those bodies you mentioned??? I can see the benefits of IBIS but I do often see many discussing IBIS as a deal maker or breaker in camera "systems". Even 1/100 pushing the limits of motion blur unless your supplementing with flash that...

    Micro 4/3 or move to new system

    Very true comments regarding AF-C application. I've been out of the loop lately on m43 as I've transitioned to the fuji system and Canon gear. A good friend of mine has recently asked me to help him find a camera system that suits his needs. This is the reason why I started to look into M43...

    Best place to have pictures printed?

    Go to a pro lab if you can. If possible look for a lab that still uses a wet lab and NOT a dry lab. Ink absorption produces better prints than a dry lab. Pro labs would usually calibrate their printers as the add new batches of paper. I doubt most labs do this religiously. Once you get a...

    Micro 4/3 or move to new system

    In Canada that body goes for $2500CDN. IF Olympus produced an M43 sensor that improved dynamic range and noticeable higher ISO performance that would warrant the $$$$$ in going to a newer version of the E-M1. As an events photographer IBIS is handy for long telephoto lenses. To prevent...

    Micro 4/3 or move to new system

    What you must ask yourself is if the iq of the camera meets your needs. If you shoot in good light primarily or studio setting the small sensor will do just fine. This is where choosing your tools for your application will either meet your needs fully or you must look elsewhere for different...

    Micro 4/3 or move to new system

    Analyze the lens lineup of fuji and see if it works for you application. At this moment my biggest issue with fuji is the lack of HSS with their flash system. Otherwise if your fine with just TTL flash you will probably enjoy Fuji. If you jumped into a Fuji X-T2 you'd have 24mpx sensor that...

    New EM1 V2 or Nikon D500?

    After handling the D500 I'd say WOW!! This is where I'm use to using my Canon 5dmk3 as a reference point as I don't own the 5dmk4 yet...... At the end of the day I think many of us have that "deep gut feeling" of accomplishment when you land the shots. I think the D500 will be one of those...

    5D MK IV is announced.

    Yes indeed it's interesting how all of us decide differently on "tools". The Sony A7Rmk2 w/ 24-70 G master lens is longer than a Canon 5dmk3 w/ 24-70Lmk2. I think ergonomics in long time duration shoots the bulkier Canon grip would prevent less cramp/fatigue even though it's very likely heavier...

    5D MK IV is announced.

    No worries :) I'm a Primary Canon user and I'm not excited about this camera. I've never been happy with Canon's bean counters deciding on how to slowly release functions of "bells/whistles". I'm heavily deep into Canon Pro lenses so I just dont want to jump to the darkside Nikon. The 5d4...

    5D MK IV is announced.

    In life there is always compromise. I'd rather have dead on focus and tracking in video than good quality video with hunting focus. When I shoot video it's run/gun. Alot of people I know shoot video on the fly and do not use tripods with fluid heads or tracks. This is where most people...

    5D MK IV is announced.

    I'll be very curious how the GH5 will perform. The 5dmk4 has DPAF so a large portion of users would benefit from having "locked on" AF of the subject matter. That alone will make or break video "quality". This is where Canon hasn't fully utilized their R&D department for video. I'm more...

    5D MK IV is announced.

    If Canon makes it.....it will sell!! The Dual pixel technology makes that camera like an insane "camcorder" for run and gun. I'd imagine a good percentage of people use video AF if they are vlogging. The subject gets locked in and focus pulling is a breeze. The difference is the subject wont...

    5D MK IV is announced.

    We'll have to see in the upcoming months of real world testing. Having 4k video and Canon's dual pixel technology is seriously nothing to laugh at. I think they've stole some of the C300 video tech and put it into the 5dmk4. Nothing on the market can touch Canon's dual pixel technology for...

    Fuji XT1 - it hurt my hands!

    Even though I never bought an E-M1 I preferred it's ergonomics much more than my E-m5. However the grip of the G7 or GH3/4 series just feels like it's a natural handshake of camera to hand grip. It's subjective.....

    5D MK IV is announced.

    30.4 megapixels hits a sweet spot for me. Still manageable in size yet a lot of pixels to work with when you need to crop. I wont be getting one soon since I'd imagine the Canadian street price will be around $4500. I'll be picking up another 5d3......

    Sony body comparable to Olympus EM5 II

    I think adopting and having a variation of formats can really cater to a person's tool kit even better than one system alone. This can actually allow a person to gain or lose a camera body or even "changing into a different primary system" not effecting photographic documentation. Many of my...

    Sony body comparable to Olympus EM5 II

    I wonder if you've ever taken photos when your forced to use iso 3200 and higher with no HSS or TTL external flash? Everyone has different applications in photography. I was using my M43 in a gymnasium documenting family / friends and this was a rude awakening for me when I tried to clean up...

    Sony body comparable to Olympus EM5 II

    Why not fulfill your G.A.S. and buy gear and see if it jives with your shooting style. If you get an improvement of 1 stop simply from the sensor that's an improvement!!! if you dont like it you can always sell it. For landscape/cityscape photography I can really see the benefits of IBIS. I'm...

    Dont judge the camera unless you have good glass. If your using a mk1 version of a non stabilized lens your not even close into tapping into the detail of that camera. For m43 this is exciting times for the release of the fresh bodies. E-M1mk2 !!

    injury forcing a move to lighter equipment, looking for others experiences

    Abe, congrats!! Wow you don't mess around..... Get yourself a bolt on body grip for your X-E2s. You will love the grip since it will feel substantially more secure. I just wrote a quick review on amazon.ca. Amazon.ca: Alan's review of Neewer® Black Metal Quick Release L-Plate ... Have fun!!

    Help preparing for first family photo shoot

    Edgar, Please discuss with the parents to try to make sure the children get in a nap before the photo shoot. Even tell the parents to bring treats for the 3yrs old ( gummy bears etc) so you can reward the 3yrs old when he smiles and looks at the camera. If you do not use flash in bright lights...

    Serious Question for group photography with flash

    Another note: Do not over complicate group shot lighting. I'd rather keep it simple instead of using ratio's of different power of lights. You can purchase a 7 foot shoot through umbrella and have great success with that small group shot. Just feather the light and have beautiful fill. It...

    Serious Question for group photography with flash

    I'd rather stop down a zoom instead of shooting closer to wideopen. The 14-140mm is f/3.5 on the wide end of the FL. Stopping down a fast prime to f/4 should provide you a more sharper image. If your getting into f/5.6 or smaller aperture a zoom will be sharp enough with studio strobes. f/5.6...

    Help preparing for first family photo shoot

    I'm going to suggest keeping thing very simple. Forget off camera flash or light modifiers. Simply put the flash on the hotshoe and feather the flash so that it fills shadows. Putting emphasis on gear while you shoot will create a rift between caputuring human emotions vs. technicalities of gear...

    Thanks for the examples Terry. The "salt/pepper" you speak of should be familiar to all M43 users. This is where the fuji characteristics of noise is not offensive and can be dealt with much easier in post processing NR treatment. I'm not certain if many know that the Oly EM-5mk2 and Fuji...
