    Micro 4/3 Why can't I love my G5?

    Apologies for the thinking aloud, but maybe something will come out of it... My camera history over the last 7 or 8 years - LX3 which was my first serious digital camera, traded it in for a GX1 which I really liked but developed multiple faults probably due to being rattled about on a lot of...

    Micro 4/3 Back in the game with a GF5

    My lovely GX1 has developed several faults after too many trips rattling around in a cycle bag, still usable but not ideal. I dithered with the idea of replacing it with something more compact like the LX100, but in the end I like the change of mindset a change of lens can produce. Now I've...

    Hello again

    It's been a while :blush: Around 5 years in fact since I received excellent help and information on the Serious Compacts forum, where does the time go! I see there's been some changes. I was seduced away from my lovely LX5 by the bigger is better idea of getting a M4/3 (GX1) and the kit that...

    Critique Wanted Help wanted!

    As title. St Pancras train station has a fantastic roof and a sculpture of John Betjeman looking up at it. Should make a good photo. Despite several attempts over the last year I just can't get it. It's somewhere I often end up with an hour to kill, so suggestions on what to try next time...

    Cycling along the coast

    I spent five days last week cycling up the NE coast of England and into Scotland. Not as many miles as I'd intended, the tail end of hurricane Katia made the riding exciting and the camping interesting! Well at least it gave me plenty of excuses to get off and take a few photos. It was all...

    Critique Wanted Could be better!

    Going through some photos from a recent cycling trip along England's NE coast and into Scotland and I'd appreciate comment on this photo; I like it, but there's something telling me it could be better, either when shot or PP, I just don't know what I could/should do different. I know, a...

    Stone circles

    I don't know what our ancesters were up to six thousand years ago, they certainly liked big stones and putting them in circles. Thankfully they also put them in some lovely places, perfect for a bike ride, though that probably wasn't their intention:smile: Rollright Stones in Oxfordshire...

    Critique Wanted Idkwilibid

    Another in my occasional series of I Don't Know Why I Like It But I Do shots:smile: An ex railway tunnel now part of a cycle track footpath. I took a few shots, but this is the only want I like. Time was dusk, ISO set at 80, set to P (Though I played with a few other options) the lighting is...

    Computer spec

    Hi folks, My six year old Pentium 4 computer is struggling to keep up with the photo editing I'm trying. It's slow with Elements 9 and the trial version of Lightroom I've downloaded almost brings it to a standstill. Abode list the minimum spec and it's just about there, but it doesn't give...

    Holiday snaps

    Back from a weeks cycling and camping holiday in the North of Scotland, mainly the Orkney Isles with a couple of days in the Highlands riding back to Inverness. We missed the fantastic weather the week before (As everyone kept telling us) we also missed the worst of the storms the days after...

    Critique Wanted I don't know why I like it...

    but I do. A photo taken at the weekend of nothing in particular, a green field and a yellow field with a blue sky. Of the 20ish photos I'm keeping from a short cycling and camping break, I'm drawn to this one and I don't know why. So your opinions and critique appreciated. If no one else...

    Feedback Signature line

    It was suggested I add my Flicker link in a signature line. It's probably just me being numpty, but I can't find where or how I do this. Simple step by step instructions if you wouldn't mind. Thanks

    What do I need to know about SD cards?

    I'm using a Scandisk 2gb card in my LX5, which for daily use is fine, I had this card knocking around from something else, so didn't look for anything else. I'm soon going on holiday, somewhere scenic, hopefully loads of photo opportunities so am looking for more capacity. Just had a google...

    Photoshop Elements 8 or 9?

    Hi, I've never done any processing other than straightening, cropping and auto fix. I'd like to do more. My camera (LX5) came with Silkypix which I can't get on with at all. Photoshop Elements is about the budget I'd be happy to spend, I can get the latest version 9 or for half the price the...

    Hi from Derby, UK

    Hi, found this site while looking for LX5 information a few months back and now having had one to play with for a couple of months thought I'd pop back to see if I can actually learn to use it:redface: My main leisure activity is cycling, as a tourist rather than racer, and it'd be a shame to...
