Re: Scanning Torture (or Learning to Love Your Digital Camera)

The quality of the raw files from the 10mp tiny sensor in my Canon S95 are so much better in every way. Although some may say the dynamic range is less, maybe a lot less, than color negative film I have found that in practical terms it is much better. As long as you are scanning to convert the anal...

Re: Venice, Italy

Funny. :lol: From the looks of them with the messages written on them they seem to be left there by customers. Maybe if you had hung around until later in the evening they had an amateur striptease contest for the entertainment. :lol:

Re: Future of A mount

The only A-mount bodies I still have are the A700 and A100. Oh, I still have my old film A-mount bodies (7, 707si, 7xi, 7000i -- sold the 9xi years ago). All of that stuff is packed away back in the States and I am still in Japan though. A-mount probably won't have much in the way of new releases. I...

Re: DxO: Sony A900 vs Olympus E-M10II

We've actually just bought an E-M5 II with 12-40mm and then acquired a well-priced used 75-300mm II Olympus for it. Shirley has now had one cataract operation and is in the queue for what may be both a further cataract operation and corneal graft - which could restore vision to both eyes, 3D again ...

Re: Future of A mount

I'm very pleased with the image quality from my GX7 and that's just with the 12-32, F/3.5, I am still looking for a tele zoom to complete my simple system, but not a big long one, may be up to 140. The Olympus 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 gets great reviews from users. I don't have it, but I have held it many...

Re: Future of A mount

If I'm correct m4/3 all their bodies have IS built in I find it very useful - hugely. It's puzzling why Sony denies this to their entry/mid APS-C users only the full frame ones have it Seems like a deliberate omission to up sell to the more expensive cameras. Have to say at A6600 prices and those n...

It was announced yesterday that Sony sold the last of their stake in Olympus. They had sold some earlier also, but now down to zero.

Re: DxO: Sony A900 vs Olympus E-M10II

Over the last few weeks I had been going through all my Japan photos over the years. Since I started using digital I have used many cameras of course. I have lots of A700 and A100 photos to compare to m4/3 photos (Olympus PEN-F, E-M10II, E-M10, E-M5, and Panasonic G3). I have noticed that my m4/3 ph...

Re: Future of A mount

Bakubo, your probably more sensible than odd ​ Over the last few decades I guess I have just been very good at knowing myself and what I value. If you know that then choosing a camera that matches up with what you want is not all that difficult. For my primary photographic interest (street, travel,...

Yes, I see that all the time on the forums. It never has happened to me though. I guess I am just odd. :)
