    G2 or GH2

    Remember, YOU make pictures and take photographs, NOT the camera. If you have been using a G1 per say for the last couple of years, and it took great photos, and now a "new and improved" model is released, does that mean that the old G1 will stop producing good images? Does it mean that all...

    [EXPIRED] FS: Panasonic GF1 Body Only NEW

    I wanted the 20mm pancake but got a good deal on the GF1 and pancake package. I don't need the body. Its brand new, just took maybe a dozen Images to test it with the lens. Comes with original receipt so it's still under warranty. All accessories included, cables, software, battery, charger...

    Fuji!

    Only if we stop buying new cameras every six months and focus on photography :) Don't get me wrong people! I think this new Fuji is a very cool looking little camera. It's feature rich and how can anyone not like that retro look. In fact I may eventually pick one up sometime next year...

    (FT5) First Panasonic GH2 picture!

    What I mean was,, i wouldn't buy a used GH1 for $700 when I just bought a new one for $650 body only. Yes the one I bought is not hackable, but I really don't care about the video. As far as the GH2 goes, it's all just a sales brochure right now. Who knows what it can and can't do. The ONLY...

    Fuji!

    I'm sorry, but I find a lot of the comments on this thread so amusing. People "ditching" a camera and format because a new shiny toy comes out. So does this mean that the GH1 or GF1 or G1 all stopped producing good images on the day this Fuji announcement was made? Did you make any...

    I don't need the video, so I would rather have a brand new non hackable body

    Fuji!

    Words of wisdom Ray! I just bought a GH1 and a Gf1 for dirt cheap prices. I made a pact to myself to not even read a single review on new equipment for the next 3 years. It gets to a point when we have to ask ourselves are we camera buffs and gear collectors or are we photographers? The...

    (FT5) First Panasonic GH2 picture!

    I bought a BRAND NEW GH1 Body on ebay from ********** last week for $659.00 so 700 for a used one is wishful thinking. I don't expect much ISO improvement because it's not mentioned in the sales specs. I would think Pan would hype it, if it existed.

    The new GH2 coming soon with 18mpx!

    Megapixels are the biggest marketing ploy of the century. I'm not shooting posters, 12 mp is more then enough, unless your printing big. But the camera manufacturers know that the ignorant amateur market (and that's where they make their money, not from the pro market) will eat up more...

    GH1 Body Only ?

    I hate zooms. I think their touristy and gimmicky. Now that I p***** people off let me ask a question. The only lens I ever need ever in my entire photographic career are the 28 35 and 50' with 35 being used the most. So would it make sense for me to buy a GH1 from one of those eBay sellers...

    The problem with m4/3s

    I was always a prime shooter. All I need is a 50 a 35 and a 28 and that's it. And the 35 would be on my camera 90 percent of the time. Aren't zooms touristy? :) Speaking of which, why the can't I buy the GH1 body only? Or with the pancake?

    (UPDATED W/IMAGE SAMPLES!) HOT! NEW CV 25MM f0.95 NOKTON!

    I think your wrong about those numbers. Yes the focal Enght doubles, but not the aperture. So my old canon 50mm 1.4 would need a 25mm 1.4 to be equal. This was discussed earlier. When I use my handheld light meter to meter and it tells me f8 at 1/60th it doesnt matter if I'm using a G1 or a...

    (UPDATED W/IMAGE SAMPLES!) HOT! NEW CV 25MM f0.95 NOKTON!

    25mm Is really a 50mm. While I enjoy a normal prime, I find the field of view boring. If this were a 35 or better yet a 28 I would be all over it. Just to add, and this is personal to me and I realize doesn't apply to everyone. But a 50mm lens I would probably be more inclined to use outdoors...

    (UPDATED W/IMAGE SAMPLES!) HOT! NEW CV 25MM f0.95 NOKTON!

    Ok I love to stir the soup. Why is everyone so excited about this lens? I'm not being sarcastic. I just want to know. Is the difference between this and the pan 20 THAT much different, other then being faster.

    Another EP1 vs GF1 question

    I have a G1 which I bought about a month ago from amazon for $480.00 which I thought was a good deal. I am planning to get the 20mm pancake, but was thinking if its wise to spend $400.00 on the lens when for about $750.00 I can get it with the Gf1 kit! Coming from a 5D, I appreciate the light...

    (UPDATED W/IMAGE SAMPLES!) HOT! NEW CV 25MM f0.95 NOKTON!

    Yes I would think that the aperture (F Stop) doesnt matter what the format is. For example, and I am an old film guy, when I use my light meter and it tells me f8 1/60 for correct exposure, that it. Regardless if using an m43 lens or full frame dslr

    (UPDATED W/IMAGE SAMPLES!) HOT! NEW CV 25MM f0.95 NOKTON!

    I don't follow you re the "50 1/8 equivalent. I realize 25mm on m43 is really a 50mm on a full frame camera, but I wasn't aware that the aperture also was cut in half, unless I'm misunderstanding you

    Another EP1 vs GF1 question

    Let me pick your brains. I am looking at the EP1 and GF1 in a shop today. No matter which one I went with, I would want the fast 20mm pan lens. When this lens is mounted to the EP1 with the IS, does it gain 2 more stops(making it equal to 1.2) due to the in body IS? My concern is for indoor...

    GF! or PEN to Compliment a new GH1 ?

    The advantage of the GF1 over the pad is the 20mm that comes with it. So basically your getting the body for about 400. O

    EPL-1, EP-2, or G1

    Just to thow this in, the GH1 has an improved chip which is really 14 mp so you can crop more easily. I have a G1 but plan on getting a GH1 as the prices are very good, and the new GH2 will more then likely have the same size chip with just some upgrades, and cost 2000.00 But the main reason for...

    Magnum's Eli Reed with An Oly: gotta love it

    What's really interesting, in my point of view, is that he was a using a 5 mp digital camera from 2003' an antique by today's standards. With that camera he has photographed photoshoots for GQ magazine among others. Compared to today's technology, I would assume the old Olympus from 2003 would...

    OK --you have to decide. MFT or DSLR

    Well, what a lot of people don't realize is that after a while, it won't matter any longer. Sure there's no limit to how much better a sensor can be made, but what our sensors record ( the human eye) will never get any better. So no matter how much a full frame dslr is improved, it's all...

    Change from GF1 to EP-2 just for the art filters?

    No, Jpeg files are always noisier and have less data then the the original raw file. bracket your raw files for superior results.

    Change from GF1 to EP-2 just for the art filters?

    I couldn't agree more. I cant believe all the concern over this. IMO the filters are gimmicky. Just shoot raw, and do your own color correction and get the most out of your files. every time you shoot jpegs, you are throwing away a big chunk of data. I also use Photoshop, unless it's a simple...
