    Apple Photos - how do I break free?

    The iphoto library mostly contains pics shot with m43 cameras. Large majority of that is RAWs+JPEGs. There is something I shot on iphone, but thats a minority and certainly the are not the most "valuable" pics in there. I exported the library once as export "unmodified" (that is giving me back...

    Apple Photos - how do I break free?

    So in order to get my edits too, I should export "originals" first to get my raws and the re-export overwriting the jpegs to have my edited jpegs?

    Apple Photos - how do I break free?

    I exported a set of photos (unmodified originals + xmp file) and reimported in a new Photos library on NAS. Metadata are intact. First step for me is to have the current main Library go down to a size allowing me to unselect the "optimize option" and have all the unmodified originals stored on...

    Apple Photos - how do I break free?

    I think this is the test to do. I will export (unmodified originals) and import and see if the dates in the metadata are correctly used. I tried moving the library (keeping it as apple photos) to my nas, and icloud is definitely part of the problem. The library storage is "optimized" so part of...

    Apple Photos - how do I break free?

    I'm trying to export my whole photo library from Apple photos. It seems to be working but it screws the file dates, setting them to the moment when the export is done (=right now). Any tip?

    Trip to Tokyo - m43 shopping suggestions

    Early february I will be in Japan (Tokyo), it's a business trip and I will have very little time for tourism or shopping. But very little does not mean nothing, I'd like to purchase an m43-related japanese souvenir. :) What's the best place to go for this kind of shopping?

    Has anyone found reliable third party batteries and charger for E-M1 mk II?

    I had good experiences with Patona as a brand. I had batteries and USB chargers for EM10 mark ii, EM1 markii and Pen-F. If that's available in US (I always purchased the brand from different european Amazon stores, no idea if they rebrand somehow in US) it may be worth a try.

    8-18 in exchange of my 12-40?

    Not sure if the opener solved his dilemma long ago, but looking at his Instagram (very nice, you have a new follower) and reading what he's also planning to add to his kit, I'd suggest to swap the Laowa with the Leica 8-18 and evaluate upgrading the 12-40 into a 12-100, skipping the 40-150.

    Super zoom vs. 2 lens kit.

    I cannot help compare with the Leica 12-60, but from an IQ perspective I find the 12-100 impeccable all the way thru the range. The only complaint I can have is the overall size/weight, which I understand can be above the desired threshold for a lot of "travellers". Anyway, if you are referring...

    Super zoom vs. 2 lens kit.

    I think you can be more forgiving on corners when dealing with travel kits. Corner to corner impeccable sharpness probably requires large aperture primes, or anyway zooms with far less compromise than what we allow when dealing with "travel kits". You mentioned 12-40+35-100, I can imagine both...

    Super zoom vs. 2 lens kit.

    Being able to go out with a prime in a jeans pocket is one of those things that brought me back from the FF dark side. Yesterday I had the Laowa f2 in my pocket, more often is the O17f1.8 or the 25f1.8 but it could easily be the PL15 or the Oly45.....

    Sigma 56mm vs. Olympus 45mm 1.8 for portraiture

    I have the two lenses, and the 75mm as well. Would love to try one day the Oly 1.2 and I dream about the Nocticron twice per week. Definitely start from the O45, awesome lens with the best m43 dna. Small, cheap, excellent IQ, versatile. It's the right first prime in the range, then see where...

    Super zoom vs. 2 lens kit.

    The 12-100 is the game changer. It's probably the best lens for the system in terms of IQ, it covers an unbelievable range, dual IS allows to keep the ISO down in a very reasonable range in most situations. Add one normal prime for low light and the kit is done.

    Shootout GAS attack: Oly EM1mkii vs Sony A7iii

    I read mk3 was an improvement over mark ii, I'll give Sony a couple more marks and then try again. Ergonomics and overall how the camera feels in hands was one of the main reasons for coming back to m43. AF-C was excellent, the 3.0 firmware reduced the gap ( that was embarrassing before) but...

    Shootout GAS attack: Oly EM1mkii vs Sony A7iii

    I had and A7ii for a year, with two primes and the awesome 24-105 f4. That was my experience too. I went back to full m43, because I can live with the limits and enjoy the strengths, but I find hard to deny the difference in IQ and the enormous flexibility of raw files.

    What photography related item did you SELL this week (and why)?

    With the 12-35 you are pretty well covered in terms of focal lenght, and the lens is excellent also in terms of IQ. You need to analyze what tight spaces means for your photograhy, when I shoot in a tight place I often find myself indoor with less than optimal light ... Sorry, didn't mean to...

    Olympus 75 or Samyang/Rokinon 85?

    The Oly75mm is a fantastic lens, if you can swallow the premium price. The odd focal lenght doesn't make it easy to use, so it's an expensive (but awesome) piece of glass that you will not end using every day. Anyway, I don't see how a MF 85mm could be easier to use on m43, also factoring in...

    Tips for new lens on Panasonic GX85

    I think P12-60 is the way to go, if budget allows also add a P25mm f1.7 This would give you a very nice walkaround do it all lens, and something to deal with low light. Excellent quality overall, very budget conscious kit. If you think you may miss the size of the 12-32, you can replace the...

    DxO PhotoLab 3 is coming

    I upgraded to Photolab 3. I did that just because I wanted to show support for a product I like using, plus the "black friday" offer made the price for Elite upgrade acceptable. But the list of updates is really minimal, from a rational standpoint I should have saved the money and kept using the v2.

    Which f1.2 prime?

    I now have an f1.4 option both at 25mm (Pana-Leica) and in the portrait range (Sigma 56mm). If at some point I feel the need for an f1.2 I'll probably upgrade my 17mm first.

    Downsizing the right way?

    I think you have an excellent kit, pro zooms coverage from 7 to 100 and two nimble primes for low light. You could add a 45mm f1.8, that would give you the very popular 17/45 combo with very little added weight and cost.

    Lens hood information, please.

    I use hoods most of the time, and I do that for the protection they offer to the lens. What is a decent (but much smaller than the standard one) hood I could pick? I saw some cheap ones, they screw in on the filters thread, are they any useful?
