I'm of an age where camera shake gets more obvious with the passage of time. I have found that with OIS and a faster shutter speed the 45-200 is still useable at 200 when handheld. I find it better to not linger but to chose the subject, frame and then quickly shoot. Here is a shot at 200, it...
According to rumours there will be on board IS in the GX7
- The leaked document says it’s 16Megapixel but I heard it’s 18MP. This makes me think the sensor may be multiaspect. Which means 18 megapixel sensor with 16 megapixels effective resolution (like it was on the GH2!).
- It has a...
The previous thread below discussed a similar issue. I'm a Lumix user so I can't offer any advice other than to confirm that the Panasonic update process is very easy. Download the Panasonic firmware for your lens and put it on an SD card in case you are able find a local Lumix user to help you...
From the movie "Blow Up" 1966
"Jane: What are you doing? Stop it! Stop it! Give me those pictures. You can't photograph people like that.
Thomas: Who says I can't? I'm only doing my job. Some people are bullfighters, some people are politicians. I'm a photographer."
I enjoy going for country walks with my camera and I use a collapsible walking stick/ monopod with an adjustable head. There are loads on eBay and amazon for 20 dollars or less. The walking stick adjusts just like any other hiking pole and gives the camera that extra bit of stability when...
I've only watched part of the video but have already learned a trick or two. I'll watch the rest this evening and hope to learn a few more.
I always say that if you can learn one new thing every day then the day hasn't been wasted
Apart from pictures of the floor and other obvious misfires or test shots I keep every thing else. Storage is now cheap so when I start to run out of space I buy bigger hard drives.
I often wonder what will happen to all these photos when I snuff it, will there be a means of displaying...
If you are shooting RAW + JPG have you tried this
In Preferences go to "Set import and file-handling preferences"
Enable "Treat JPEG Files Next To Raw Files As Separate Photos"
You should now see them as separate images on import.
Yes but the depth of field will be greater than an equivalent on a full frame.
i.e. on m43 a native 40mm will have the DOF of a 40mm but the field of view of an 80mm when the subject is at the same distance from the camera.
I always think that photographs are like some fine wines, they get better with age. I was 16 when these events were taking place, in many ways not all things have changed over those 50 years.
I wonder if in 50 years people will be impressed by the standard of today's images considering the...
I look forward to seeing the OOC from various cameras, after all this is what many people use all the time. I think we should recognise that cameras have many user set options for jpgs which will have influenced the result so it would be useful to know what these settings are.
I still remain...
I recently bought a Fuji X10 refurbished by Fuji UK. Everything works OK and it has a 12 month warranty. The price was about 2/3 the going rate and in my mind it is a safer bet than buying from Joe Public.
