    Lakeside

    Not my usual subject but we were at a local lake for a family picnic and I happened to have my E-PL1 with the 20/1.7 with me. ISO100, f2, processed in LR and CS4. . . . Burkey

    How happy are you with your current equipment?

    Probably about a 9. I'm still wanting more fast and affordable primes but overall MFT format really fits my needs. . . . Burkey

    Olympus Pen...perception vs reality

    As an ex M8 user I gotta' say that the images out of the Pen series cameras I have had or still presently own and use are excellent and although I think I will go for the X100 I will remain a very loyal "MFT-guy". I take pictures/make images/tell stories. I think. I use Pens a lot to do those...

    A bit of a cautionary tale about eBay

    An interesting thread. I've personally done well over the years with eBay, especially buying and selling photo gear. I have over 500 transactions with a 100% positive rating. (Not all photo gear. :cool:) But applying some serious caution is absolutely imperative. There's no such thing as a...

    Pany 20mm lens hood

    The nice thing about the 14mm and the 20mm is that they use the same filter size. I've bought hoods from Heavy Star too for years. Great product, fast shipping. But the vented hood shown in this thread really got my attention so one of those is in route right now. Thanks for posting the...

    Fuji!

    Sample images up on the Fuji X100 site found here; Sample Image Gallery | FUJIFILM FinePix X100 Not much to tell from these but I did notice a lot of minus EV correction in the data. I wonder if the X100 tends to "shoot hot". . . . Burkey

    Question about Panny 20mm F1.7

    Hi syilim, From Ray - "You get very accustomed to 'seeing' at that focal length and you start to envision images and patterns and frames very intuitively." This is a very important part of photography for me and many around here. However, if you are more comfortable with a zoom I too wouldn't...

    EVF2 and Motion Sickness

    The suggestion regarding using the LCD for macro shots is a good one. My wife has three beautiful orchids in bloom right now and I took a shot of them for her. I used the LCD and it worked wonderfully. Flowers aren't my typical subject matter and using the LCD isn't my usual image viewing...

    EVF2 and Motion Sickness

    Interesting. I get a similar feeling when using a broadcast field camera when its on a tripod higher than I am. Looking up into a VF can be very disorienting. A silly question - but - is the diopter adjusted to your sight? . . . Burkey Another thought - are you bent over with your head in an...

    E-PL2/Lens for Disney World?

    Something else you may also want to think about if you are strongly considering the 20/1.7- an ND filter. If you want to limit the DoF on some of your shots you may find that you run out of shutter speeds when at a low ISO and wide aperture. I bought a .3 ND for the a trip to the Bahamas this...

    Hey texascbx - thanks for the reply. 'Not sure I understand the "click the # symbol above which creates the code box for you." I'm pretty much "code deficient". But I'll fool around with it without posting my mistakes until I get it, (or don't.) Again, thanks for the reply. . . . Burkey

    E-PL2/Lens for Disney World?

    We make a couple of trips to WDW every year as my wife is a huge Disney fan. This past trip I took my E-PL1, 20/1.7, 14/2.5 and a Nokton 25/.95. To my surprise the vast majority of images I took ended up being with the 20/1.7. As previously mentioned, what you shoot obviously has a big...

    Fuji!

    Hmmm. Where have we seen this sort of f-stop and shutter speed setup before? (Other than with classic cameras.) I have owned both the Digilux 2 and 3. The later I got direct from Leica when my Digilux 2 sensor went out. Both great cameras at low ISOs with easily adjustable f-stops and...

    What lens would you buy for a GF1 if you were me? (fast 50mm equiv)

    Hello and welcome to the forum. I find that the Lumix 20/1.7 Pancake is my favorite 4/3 lens regardless of what 4/3 body I put it on. Nice 40mm focal length - 35mm FoV. Sharp too. I don't think the bokeh is quite as nice as the Nokton 25mm but for overall quality, speed and versatility it's...

    Showcase Panasonic 14mm f/2.5

    Here's a shot from a recent family vacation taken with the 14/2.5. I'm still finding that I use the 20/1.7 a lot more. However, the 14/2.5 is a great lens, very sharp, not as contrasty as I expected, very small and light and takes the same filters as the 20mm. E-PL1, ISO320, f10. 1/1250sec...

    would it be wise to invest more in the system?

    A couple of thoughts - In the broadcast arena Sony has a very bad habit of abandoning systems. The number of tapeless ENG broadcast recorders Sony has gone through is an industry legend. Likewise for Sony with broadcast NLE systems, (non-linear editing). Panasonic, on the other hand...

    Another shot with the Lumix 14/2.5 this time with the G1. ISO640, f2.5, 1/40 sec. Processed in LR3.2 and CS4 for posting. A very nice lens. We will be traveling next week and this lens along with the Nokton 25/.95 will definitely be in my bag. And again - have a nice holiday season.:smile...

    RAW...huh...what is it good for?

    I believe Adams used to say something like; "the negative is the score and the print is the performance." I've always liked this quote, paraphrased or not. But then again I'm a big Bresson fan and he never printed any of his own work. Over processing and gross image manipulation aren't part...

    Voigtlander 25mm f0.95 Camera Porn

    Very nice images. The Nokton is quite a capable lens. How did the E-PL1 with the Nokton hold up against the G11? I was pretty much luckless with the G9 I had. Oh yeah, geez I wish I had of been at that concert. (Insert jealousy here.) :smile: Thanks for sharing. . . . Burkey
