    High Quality Image of Upcoming GF3 Published by 43 Rumors

    Sorry I'm not trying to sound argumentative. Could it be that the larger Oly zooms don't have issues on smaller RF-style bodies is due to the fact that they do have a tripod collar? Obviously the 100-300mm is hand holdable with quite remarkable results as shown in the image threads in the...

    High Quality Image of Upcoming GF3 Published by 43 Rumors

    Yes but it is larger than the 45-200mm so proper hand-holding technique will be needed. Guess it's a bit off-topic for the thread but I just thought it was odd to mention of the use the lens tripod collar for additional stability when none exist for the 100-300mm.

    But there's no tripod mount/collar for the Panasonic 100-300mm?

    Do all m4/3 cameras go black in between shots?

    DSLRs also experience viewfinder blackout than the EVF but the it's the slight delay of the EVF in reflecting what's in front of you that makes tracking hard for me.

    E-PL2 RAW vs JPEG thoughts

    I used the same line of thought when opting for RAW captures. WB, sharpening, saturation, contrast all do affect the final image but not worrying about it up front is liberating. Since I'm not as talented nor skilled as the others here, this has let me concentrate on getting things that can't...

    I did crop it to 16x10 to eliminate the black rocks at the bottom for my wallpaper. But as Kevin showed, I shouldn't be afraid to crop more to get closer as it definitely invokes a different story. Thanks Saelee and everyone for your comments! I really appreciate it. :smile:

    New Oly m4/3 lens on the way

    This isn't the first time Olympus has showed a prototype with had minimal amount of markings. At Photokina this past September, they showed their prototype of a "flagship Zuiko compact". Which ended up being the XZ1: Maybe this prototype isn't as far along as the XZ1 was at Photokina?

    Who's geotagging photos ? (GPS Photo Tagger)

    The app is called RunKeeper. It has both a free and "pro" version (which is free until the end of Jan!). The big difference between the two is audio cues for pace/time/distance. The website for the app is Track Your Running, Measure Your Fitness, and Improve Your Training | RunKeeper and...

    Who's geotagging photos ? (GPS Photo Tagger)

    I use an app on my phone to log and track my runs/hikes and one of it's features is a GPX file download option. Importing the file into Aperture 3, it does it's magic and geo-tags my images.

    Has anyone taken their E-PL1 out in the weather?

    Snowy Commute I've taken my E-PL1 out in both rainy and snowy conditions. With rain, I wrapped my camera in a plastic bag to shield as much droplets of water as possible. In snow, depending on the temperature, I generally haven't covered it up like with rain but I shield it as much as...

    I have a Konica 57mm f1.4. Should I sell my Konica 40mm f1.8 & replace it with what?

    I had similar feelings about the 40mm as well and had starting shopping around for alternative options. I decided to give it one last go around and use it exclusively for several weeks. It's now one of my favorite lens. It's quicker to focus since the focusing ring is around half a turn...

    My very first ever model photoshoot: Natalie, Set 01! Opinions please!

    Compositional-wise maybe some different crops to remove some of the more distracting elements like the telephone pole and the green chair. It probably wasn't possible but maybe different positioning of the model so the background elements would be farther out to allow for the person to stand...

    DNG v RAW and a few LR3 questions

    I can try to answer a few of your questions: 1) I shoot RAW with my E-PL1 but keep it in the Olympus RAW format. Since I also use LR3, I let the application manage the RAW + metadata. DNG probably would make migrating from LR3 to Aperture or another photo processing application. 2) LR3 has...

    14-42mm on Panasonic G1, would it work?

    IIRC, there was a firmware update for the G1 back around May which added an additional menu option for enable/disable IS on the 14-42mm lens. Seems to be confirmed by Panasonic Japan. It's footnote item 11 (*11) which states the 14-42mm is supported on G1 firmware version 1.5 or later.

    Cheap source for camera batteries? (SLRs, etc.)

    I've had good experiences so far with the Maximal Power brand batteries and like DDG mentioned, they are really inexpensive right now. I picked up a couple extra in a recent Amazon order to get free shipping. Since I fuddle too much with legacy lenses, the extra spares are great peace of mind.

    Suitable Tripods ideal for μ4/3

    I typically use the 'Gorillapod' style tripod for most of my photo outings. It's pretty easy to find a spot to place the tripod on; especially uneven surfaces. I often prop the stubby legs against my torso to gain some stability on shots taken a bit below my chin level. Make sure to get one...

    ?'s about angle of view, focal length, and perspective

    I think what you are trying to say is at 50mm, the objects in the photography are roughly the same perspective/size as your eye vision but 28mm covers the area of your peripheral vision? Then I say try a stitched multi-shot panorama at 50mm and see if that's close to what your eyes see. =]
