You're going to need the aftermarket lens collar, too.I picked up an extra battery for my Panasonic G85 this week. Saving up to buy the Panasonic 100-300.
Most of the Argoflex E cameras (not to be confused with the Argoflex 40 or 75) will take 620 or 120. Some of the very late ones and the 'II', 'EM', and 'EF' versions require modification for 120. This is a late one but it should be fine with a 620 take-up spool. So far I've been lucky in that every vintage camera I've purchased has come with a take up spool.Looks quite nice! What format is that?
I am planning a slim down sale in the near future, probably the three "new" kit lenses, the Nissin and some primes I have from earlier on, but that has become surplus to requirements (or lust for other primes). When done, I would be in the black for the GX1 and 9 houses and be soundly underway towards a PL 25. Depending on how I like the GX9, I may ending up either off-loading that or my GX8.Wow! I don't feel so bad now!
If it is the Nissin i40 I found the battery compartment contacts sag with time and now I have to pack the negative ends of the battery with some little bits of folded aluminium foil to raise the height a bit. I put these on the top of the negative ends and close the door gently so not to dislodge them.Am somewhat on a roll, so added to last weekends stuff (G9 grip/battery, PL 15mm, P20mm and a GX1 with power zoom) with a GX9 with add-on handgrip, a 12-32, a 45-150 and a Nissin 40 something in a bundle. Everything secondhand, and some at bottom prices.
Thanks for the info. When it is close to the time to buy one, maybe I will rent both to see which one I like better.You're going to need the aftermarket lens collar, too.
Personally, I'd recommend the Olympus 75-300, which is lighter, less expensive and just as good IQ. The wider FL comes in handy.
I bought another book about bird biology and behavior. Knowing your subject is a great way to improve your photography!
I think I'm transitioning from "a photographer who shoots birds" to a "birder who takes pictures". On my last outting I didn't even bring a camera (other than my smartphone).
The 100-300 goes really well with the G85, it is what I have. Originally I going to get the Olympus 75-300 for the wider end, but the dual stabilization won me over. It really makes a difference. If I lean against something 30th sec at the 300mm end is not too hard. F8 sharpens it up a bit as well, but 5.6 at 300mm is usable. I tend to use ISO 400 to keep the SS up with this lens.I picked up an extra battery for my Panasonic G85 this week. Saving up to buy the Panasonic 100-300.
I've often wondered what two monitors does for you. I use two at work, but that's in order to have more than one document visible at a time. Do some of your processing program take advantage of dual monitors?A dual monitor stand and a 2nd 24" monitor. I considered a larger single monitor but I like the 24" View Sonic that I have now so I just added a used Dell Ultra-sharp for more space. A nice cheap solution.
Interesting. I just checked and Darktable will do that. I have an old 20" laying around going unused, I could put the tools on it and leave my Dell for the image. I'll add this to the list of stuff I gotta' do!Yes. When editing I will dedicate my calibrated monitor to the image and have my tools on the 2nd monitor.
