    Help!!! I need an easy to use photo organization and editing solution!

    I'm doing a lot less editing of photos than I used to years ago, therefore I think Photos may be enough for me now. I'm excited to try out syncing between devices, as I've never done that before. It's certainly competitive with Adobe's Lightroom CC offering, and I'd be happier giving my money...

    Help!!! I need an easy to use photo organization and editing solution!

    I'm thinking of switching from Lightroom to Photos on the basis of the new features, although I haven't yet upgraded to High Sierra as I'm generally a slow upgrader as I use my Mac for work and fear issues during upgrades. How are people getting on with the new Photos app in High Sierra, is it...

    What's your favorite lens?

    Favourite is still Panasonic 20/1.7. Despite the obvious disadvantages it has, it seems the natural lens for the system to have spawned.

    Climbing El Teide in December

    I had a really great week in Tenerife at the start of December, with the aim of climbing Teide, the highest point in Spanish territory. We rented a motorhome and tried to see as much else as we could. First stop was Montaña Roja, just south of the southern airport on the island, TFS. View...

    96mp image from Rally Sweden 2016

    Really like this, in a "I did it because I could" kind of way! Excellent vantage point you had, too.

    Bangkok - Thailand rainy seasons

    Really like 24 for the way you've frozen the drivers while everyone else is moving. 14 is cool as it captures the chaotic and busy life on the streets. Like 6 too, nice vantage point!

    First photos of GX8

    Hopefully the renderings may be off... There really can't be a valid reason for the camera being bigger than the A7II.

    First photos of GX8

    Wow, cannot believe how much larger the GX8 looks to be.... big problem for me personally, GX7/EM-5 size is just right for me. The bounceable built in flash was very handy, making the GX7 a very handy travel camera for most situations. The GX8 won't fill this role so well if the rumours are true.

    P 12-32 vs P 14-42 II?

    Just got a 12-32 to replace my (little used) 14-42II - very happy with 12-32 and don't think I'd have a reason to bring the 14-42II instead. The size was the major factor for me, however having an option to use 12mm is very handy (once I get my head framing at 12mm).

    Some questions about the industar 69.

    It might be that some of them are modified by the seller - I bought mine a long time ago and don't remember doing any work to it - could be worth asking a few sellers if they have modified the lens to focus to infinity on m43?

    Gear for Morocco

    If you have a compact shoulder bag that closes securely I think you will be alright, I guess the balance is looking like your gear is more expensive with a "big" lens....

    9-18, 20 and 45 should see you alright! It's very photogenic but takes some guts to take out the camera sometimes. Be sure to check out the railway station and Cyber Parc, but good places for photos. There are lots of parks with spectacular flora. The mountain backdrops are great. I've a few...

    Photography: Is it your primary or secondary priority?

    Trying Mac photos app. Workflow suggestions?

    I have my iPhoto/Aperture library "well" organised, all the way back to photos taken with a Sony Mavica floppy disc camera in 1997 and I really don't want to have to change! Here's hoping Apple will improve features in Photos and bring it back to Aperture-like functionality. If they already know...

    Trying Mac photos app. Workflow suggestions?

    Did you have to upgrade to a larger iCloud plan or are you starting a new library for the new workflow? That's another thing that's holding me back... €9.99 per month maybe isn't that much on the grand scheme of things, but it's a lot more than free!

    Trying Mac photos app. Workflow suggestions?

    Having all of your finalised files in cloud storage with zero effort would be really handy and in my opinion is a killer feature of Photos, I'm just hoping that editing features will be restored to Aperture levels in the future, then I'll change.

    Tourist in Paris

    Fantastic series, really enjoyed it! The "love lock" craze is causing big problems for cities. The locks can get unsightly and cost a lot of money to remove. The extra weight of thousands of locks on popular bridges impose unforeseen loadings, leading to at least one partial collapse. The locks...

    Nemocón´s salt mine

    Interesting shots - took me a while to figure out that what looked like double height rooms were actually reflections in VERY still water! I guess the Fenix capsule in the 5th from last photo is a replica? Nice touch having it on show.

    Build quality: Panasonic v Olympus

    Love my Olympus E-P1 and E-PM1 but my E-PM1 frame bent slightly due to a fall, battery cover no longer opens/closes easily but no other issues. I do feel my GX7 is built to a better standard, no issues in two year's use in some tough environments.
