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

Re: Future of A mount

And now you can even have a pinhole zoom for m4/3. :)

Re: Future of A mount

Some of what's missing on the DSLRs that's included in all the phones is GPS and wireless connectivity. Most models are making you pay extra for that, via some kludge module you have to hang on to your camera body. Why? If I can marry a phone module into the body of my DSLR, I can do what my wife d...

Re: Future of A mount

I'm still wondering why there are no more 3rd party m/4/3 lenses, Sigma, Tamron and the others must think there is still a market for their lenses in cropped and FF but as you say they are really no longer a budget option. m4/3 3rd party lens makers: Sigma Tamron Voigtländer Samyang Rokinon Kowa Ko...

Re: Night shots - open thread

Lots of great photos here. Here is one in Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany in 2005. Used the KM 7D + Sigma 18-125mm f3.5-5.6.

Re: Future of A mount

I would have a bit more interest in Fuji if they had sensor based IS, only one body does. KM were onto something big with that anti shake - far far more useful to me than many other snazzy modern features. Yes, I agree. For me the 3 things that have been the biggest improvements with cameras since ...

Re: Future of A mount

We are pretty much back to the way things were 20 years ago before digital took off. Professionals and enthusiasts mostly use dedicated cameras and everyone else uses simple to use, less flexible, inexpensive cameras because they do enough of what they want to do. I say that smartphone cameras are i...

Re: Why it's time to move away from Lightroom

The current official version of darktable is still 2.6.2, but lots of people are using what will probably be called 2.7.0 when they release it officially. Someone posted this thread about the Windows version with link to the latest build: darktable-2.7.0+1477~g7740b7a8c-win64: https://discuss.pixls....

Re: Photos with evidence of the photographer

I like this topic. :) Henry, what's the story behind your last photo??? :D I am still not sure how I happened to be in that photo. My recollection is I had brought my Minolta X-700 with 50mm f1.4 to the office to take a few photos of Japanese co-workers and to walk around at lunch around Yurakucho ...

Re: Future of A mount

I now use a Canon 650D with a an early Ultrasonic Canon 28-135 with steady shot, although it was a 35-mm lens it gives excellent pictures in cropped. Its a simple second hand system that works extremely well in the cropped arena and I much prefer the colours to Sony. My Panasonic DMC FZ 330 Bridge ...
