    Panasonic GX1 Leaked on Panasonic Website

    That does look nice, I'm glad panny haven't forgotten the segment of marked who jumped on the GF1. Definitely a potential upgrade to my GF1, I will have to take a look at one once they're released.

    A few more of Isabel

    We're getting settled in to the new place now, had gorgeous weather for a week or so after we moved: It has gone a bit chilly now though, still nice for walks around our village: Should have some time for my own photo projects soon, fingers crossed!

    Sheep

    One from our family Sunday stroll yesterday: I like the symmetry of the sheep and the way the light catches them, making them stand out from the field. The sky also fits the image well.

    Assuming that GF1 build quality is on a par with G1 build quality I would be stunned if it pulled the mounting off. I just can't imagine that ever happening

    Can GF1 remember focal distance after sleep?

    You would think it would a simple enough fix for a firmware update. Although I won't be holding my breath on that one as I doubt there will be another update given that the GF2 is now out in the wild.

    Can GF1 remember focal distance after sleep?

    If my GF1 goes to sleep or I turn it off when it wakes back up again the focal distance that I had previously set on the 20/1.7 lens is lost (either via AF or MF) - It resets to a default focal distance. Is there any way of making the GF1 remember the previously set focal distance? I'm...

    Robin red breast in the snow

    I nailed the focus best on the first one, second is a little soft and third is pretty sharp too. I made the assumption that it was a he because of the territorial dispute, a behaviour I associate more with males!

    Robin red breast in the snow

    They are really characterful little souls, very inquisitive. They're probably the least skittish small bird over here as well so you can get a bit closer to them. The friendliest robins I have ever met were the New Zealand Robins, they would come right up to you, literally less than a metre...

    Extreme Negative Space

    I would say that the space has to be content as it is physically contained within the frame. It's there whether you like it or not and will have a bearing on the success or otherwise of a photograph depending on how it has been used. In most (but certainly not all) cases the space won't be the...

    Vivitar series 1 70-210 f3.5 OM fit

    I really am enjoying this lens. It's great to have such a sharp long lens that is also pretty compact - means I will actually take it places!

    Extreme Negative Space

    You can, and it is. However in this instance I would argue that it is primarily the use of space that makes the image. I cannot see this picture working if it were a close crop on the boxer, the atmosphere and tension would be lost.

    Extreme Negative Space

    One from today: I was eating my sandwich by the lake and saw this image. To me it speaks of winter - the sky is the sort of sky you only get in winter and the trees are bare. The contrail brings the image together.

    Extreme Negative Space

    On reflection I think it might be more appropriate to describe 'extreme negative space' as 'main subject small in the frame' as that is more the defining characteristic of these photographs. I came across this image today which I consider a very good use of this concept: Photograph...

    Wish #2: Tamron, Please Join Micro 4/3

    Good call, I love my tamron 17-50 VC, and the non-VC before it. Great lenses that are also sensibly compact. A fast standard zoom for m43 would be ace.

    Extreme Negative Space

    I doubt that many would disagree with you there. However I would argue that there is value as a learning tool in concentrating on particular facet of the photography and setting aside concerns of the image as a whole. I think most people enjoy photographs on their merits without...

    Extreme Negative Space

    Indeed, it was posted as an experiment/discussion point - a concept that I, and others, are exploring. What I am discovering in my own images is that it is more about the areas of the image that are the subject rather than the areas that are not the subject, and in using expanses of blank or...

    I'd say handling is pretty good, providing you have an evf, for the price you may as well give it a go. It's a lovely Sharp and contrasty lens.

    Extreme Negative Space

    The intent was to frame the bird as being lost in a vastness of sky The subject is the bird, on the lamp post. I think it works, although I prefer my more recent effort posted in this thread along these lines, an altogether more dynamic image which does have more tension.
