Re: Radical Transformation: Magnum Photos into the Digital Age

Good article. A Few Further Complications In Lens Testing http://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/the_online_photographer/2017/03/a-few-more-complications-in-lens-testing.html So what I'd recommend is not necessarily choosing your lenses based on lens tests at all. Information is good, and good inf...

Re: India trip photos

I leave on Tuesday for 6 weeks in south India and Sri Lanka. My trip in 2015 was to north India. I vacillated a bit trying to decide if I would take my PEN-F + E-M10II (backup) or use the same kit as the earlier India trip which was the E-M10II + E-M10 (backup). The PEN-F uses the same battery as my...

Re: Luminous Tree in California

What is that growing on the tree? Interesting photo!

I didn't get to that place when I was in Cambodia in 2008.

Re: Weather Today-In Your Vicinity/2017

Here are some from a few days ago in Sapporo. I had to get back and put them on the computer before I could post here. http://www.bakubo.com/Galleries%202/Japan/Sapporo%20Winter%202017/slides/OLYC4665.jpg http://www.bakubo.com/Galleries%202/Japan/Sapporo%20Winter%202017/slides/OLYD0609.jpg

Re: Tiny sensor revenge gallery thread!

Thanks for the kind comments. As you can see it was a dull afternoon when we were landing with overcast skies and an almost monochromatic landscape. As I took the photos I knew that I would convert them to B&W in LR and the result would be something like this. The leafless trees, roads, solar pa...

Re: Visiting the past in Virginia

I usually put on the extra grip on my E-M10II with those lenses though. I don't have an extra grip for the PEN-F and probably won't buy one. I bought a very inexpensive leather grip for my PEN-F off ebay from a seller in China. I saw it mentioned on another forum. A few months ago some people were ...

Re: DxO: Sony A900 vs Olympus E-M10II

I keep being tempted to buy the Olympus 75-300mm II. They sell new for only about US$380 here in Japan at the current exchange rate. Much less than in the States. I don't have much use for such a long lens (150-600mm in FF terms), but there are occasional times when it would be good to have and fun ...

Re: "Japanese people taste the best - whites are too salty!"

I didn't see any Japanese when I was there in 1995. Why? They knew to avoid the place or maybe all had already been eaten? :lol: Here is my trip report: Irian Jaya/West Papua New Guinea Trip Report http://www.bakubo.com/Irian%20Jaya/ij-report.htm And some B&W photos: B&W West Papua New Guine...

Re: Show us PORTRAITS

Sury, I hope others will post some photos too. We have some real people here, but I think that some of the ids are actually bots. :( In Susukino, Sapporo during the Yuki Matsuri (Snow Festival) that we were at this month these men were giving free cups of amazake out. I got one. I recall that when I...

We spent almost 3 weeks up in Sapporo for the annual Yuki Matsuri (Snow Festival) and also to hang around for another couple of weeks in Snow Country. Here are 3 photos I took out the window of the airliner when we were arriving at Shin-Chitose airport near Sapporo a few weeks ago. Canon S95 shootin...
