    Featured: 'My portrait work with m43: can it hang with the big boys?' by spatulaboy

    Hey all, Great images! My question is simple. if you take the same image with a D4 or D800.and print yours and the Nikons at 24 inches by 36 inches (vice versa actually) - will there be a difference in print quality? Do you know the answer to this? If there is no difference in print quality...

    An Editorial Introduction and an Opinion on the Strength of Micro Four Thirds

    Hey All, I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the native aspect ratio of the camera as a major advantage. I really like the 4/3 aspect and if you wish to change to 3/2 or 1/1 the megapixel count drops are nowhere near as large as a 3/2 native format camera (Fuji XE-1 in my case) going to say...

    Tips Please for Finding DOF w/ Digital

    Hey All, With my XE-1 I use the DOF ribbon in the display or the old rule of thumb - focus a third of the way "into" (up from bottom of) the image and you probably are in the neighborhood of hyperfocal distance. -Ed-

    Hey All, Love it! LOL I never in my life been called daddy-o. Not sure what to think... That said... Rockabilly and Ruby Ann are favorites of mine along with multiple kinds of music (country/delta blues, cowboy, country and red dirt). I play a Gretsch and my mom was the first to rub wildroot...

    Hey All, Nice car images there hepkitty! You and your car images remind me of Miss Ruby Ann with Ike and the Capers at this Youtube ... search on: v=0l33nG26TLU I think people often subconsciously follow "rules" as "rules" are common based on what looks good to people to start with. -Ed-

    Problem seeing composition in landscape photography

    Hey All, I think the best thing you can do is find some landscape photographers you like and study their work. Really study it - try to figure out why a picture works - what drew you to it? Read what landscape photographers say and write. Even if you may not care for their work - if they are...

    My approach to a "look" for my photography

    Hey All, I too looked at your photos and yes they do have a "look" to them and yes I would kinda characterize "it" as ektachrome. I bought my only 35mm film camera in 79 and it was - after trying OM1, AE1 and I have no idea what the equivalent Nikon was - I bought a Minolta XD5 - I loved...

    Hey All, I actually did know the answer as well but was curious about who else here knew about guitar. If I'm not messing with my mandolin or harmonicas I normally play my Gretsch Projet through a Bugera V5 tube amp or a Crate Taxi solid state and now find that I want a travel guitar and...

    How much have you spent on your kit?

    Hey All, About $75 total - $43 on PP software and another $30 or so on a memory card. I prefer to play on somebody else's dime as long as I choose the toys. Since buying my own film camera in 1975 I've not spent a penny of my own money on either a camera or lens for myself. Now I have...

    Mu-43 Post Processing Challenge #8

    'Full Frame Sensor NEX-7-Styled Body In 1 Year'

    Hey All, I'm betting Fuji goes down this road. There has been at least one rumour and look at what they have done with the X10, X100, XPro and XE1. I think Fuji is really committed to the idea of rangefinder style with the right mix of old and new. I'm going Fuji and this is a part of the...

    Dx0 "disaster" for the GH2

    Hey All, Still a good looking system. I see the Sony A55v is $549.99 at Broadway Photo in latest issue of Outdoor Photographer - includes kit lens. If you want the same sensor as is in the Pentax K5 and Nikon D7000 for cheap in a micro4/3rds size body - this is it. I'm sure thinking about...

    Hey All, Zach I actually way prefer the first image - the diagonal lines from the right - the curve into the picture. Nice elements in my opinion. I'd probably try "popping" the fall colors a bit more just out of curiosity. The second one is nice but I don't get or see the "floating" and it...
