    Film What Film Cameras do you use?

    I really enjoy using my OM-4T, it is a pleasure to use. It doesn't see much use but I did just buy ten rolls of Ektar 100 recently so I suppose I should get out and run a few off...

    Ricoh Ricoh GRD IV - What do you want to see?

    The only thing that has held me back from getting the GRD III is that it doesn't have an articulated screen. Keep that high-resolution beauty that it currently has and put it on a 'swivel' and I will buy the GRD IV without a doubt! For whatever reason the majority of my favourite photographs...

    A Late Season Rose...

    Thanks BB - I find using P&S cameras a little 'challenging' for close-up/macro work as the working distance is so small (the increased DOF is nice though). I actually am just waiting for a +5 achromat lens to come in the mail, using the lens at full tele with the +5 should make things much...

    A Late Season Rose...

    I went to a local rose garden this morning, the light was so nice… The rose garden looked better this morning than I have seen it all summer, very strange. Maybe my eyes were just more 'open' today! :doh: :tongue: EX1 @ 24mm, 1/45th @ f3.9, ISO80, Handheld Just wanted to share this...

    What will your next (photographic) purchase be?

    I have to do some selling first, my cabinets are over-flowing (literally) with photographic related items and I am surprised my wife hasn't said much about it. That said, I really want to try one of the latest superzooms but nothing has really caught my eye, maybe the V-LUX 2, we'll see. :wink:

    Leica Leica D-Lux 5

    I concur, there is absolutely no difference between the D-Lux 4 and LX3 lens quality. Any differences seen in the IQ of the cameras was in the JPEG processing, shoot Raw and they are identical.

    The Old Part of Town

    Hi Djarum, Thanks for the feedback, it's appreciated! I actually have tried those with less distortion but something gets 'lost' when I do, so I just went back to the original as presented. The second and third were taken with the Samsung EX1, my favourite new P&S...

    Should we have separate forums for different types of fixed lens cameras?

    I don't think it's necessary. There are a limited number of "serious compacts" out there so seperating the forums would almost slow things down. I own a number of "serious compacts" from different brands and like being able to talk about them all all under one "roof". Just my opinion of...

    Another vote for AutoPano Pro 2, fast (64-bit version), reliable and does a fantastic job! This was roughly 30 images from a Sony a900, CZ 135mm f1.8, HANDHELD!

    Which aspect ratio you shoot and why ?

    I have several cameras that allow my to capture in 4:3, 3:2, 4:4 :wink: and 16:9 in the Raw format. I end up shooting in the 3:2 format probably 90% of the time but like the option to compose and choose in the field from time to time...

    What is your preferred file format for shooting ?

    Raw for me since 2001'ish. Personally, I won't buy a camera that doesn't have a Raw format. I just like to added control after-the-fact.

    Samsung Samsung TL500 (also known as the EX1) my ongoing review (updated 10-14)

    Wallace, A few observations: If you are basing this battery life and this was your first or second time you charged it don't despair. I was out the other day and shot around 320 photos and the battery life had just gone down to the 2 bar level, this was with the IS on, LCD on and and camera on...

    Hi James, Thanks for your comments, they are appreciated! I actually don't take photos of people at all. Never have, probably never will. :tongue: I also don't (very rarely I will for the effect with a photo intended for B&W) shoot beyond the base ISO with any of my small sensor cameras...

    Fall has Begun (EX1/TL500 Photos)

    My second day out with this wonderful camera. I am really enjoying using this camera, probably the best camera purchase (out of roughly 30) I have made since the Sony R1. My DSLR's don't get used to often anymore, these compacts are getting just to darn good! These were all taken at Deer...

    A Day in the Garden

    I bought a Samsung EX1 yesterday and went to my local community garden to give it a try. So far I am extremely impressed with this camera. The colours are spot on and it has wonderful image qualities that I haven't seen in a P&S-type camera (and I have had a LOT over the years)...

    What cameras have you "connected" with and why?

    My current collection of 'keepers', they have fit my needs, ergonomically and image quality wise: Olympus OM-4T - It's just to pretty to let go! Sony R1 - A camera that will never be sold, wondeful image quality and amazing lens. Panasonic LX3 - Great little pocket camera that has the 18mm...

    I have used Gordy's straps for years on all of my cameras. The string is very strong, I used to have a video I took of my swinging my a700 (with a grip and CZ 135mm f1.8) around and around . The string is strong period. With my smaller cameras I just use a simple little Olympus wrist strap...
