    Strange to see cars like this parked in such an area ... and I even excluded the second Range Rover parked alongside the one you see. That's a Maserati right there ... M.

    Slight magenta flare, slight dust on sensor, but still, I'm quite taken with this image that was really not much more than a pot shot with the Voigtländer 21mm f/4 (that's why I had to crop and adjust a fair bit - it was quite heavily tilted). Now, where's that blower ... M.

    Some unusually generous cropping from me as well - though I "only" adjusted the format to 4:5 and straightened the image. M.

    SiJY 2019 Outtakes

    A classic street shot, almost cliché, but what actually drew me to it was the fact that I could include the reflection in the background - which is probably the reason that the foreground is less sharp than it should be (I'm not talking about the slight motion blur - it's just not in focus) ...

    I'm actually not sure if I posted a tractor pic in any of the main threads or not ... something to remedy tomorrow (I know where to find one in the evening). Anyhow, anyone, just remember that it's not compulsory to do no other photography for the whole month (even if you're not a professional...

    You just had to go ahead and say that aloud, hadn't you ... ;) I keep re-checking prices for that little marvel ever since it came out. And seeing Karen's work makes me wish I could muster the courage to try my hand on video, finally - but on the other hand, I certainly don't have her eye and...

    You may well be right. I tried, but I can't find the compatibility list I thought I remembered. I found this: Advantages of the LUMIX G AF System - Panasonic New Zealand It doesn't seem to imply that DfD is mainly useful for AF-C (though I've often seen that emphasised) but that it is a...

    I think it's not DfD - because as far as I remember, the 20mm isn't compatible. Still, AF on the GX9 is miles ahead compared to what the 20mm would do on the E-M10. I guess it's just a more refined system. I still quite like the way the 20mm behaves on the GF1, btw. - not fast by any means, but...

    Day 21 outtake. Did like the colour version, but framing was slightly off. Tried to "rescue" the image in b&w (and fiddled with orientation). M.

    I know that, Kevin; any action on your part is highly welcome, but by no means expected! And yes, you've got that one right, probably. I just seem to remember a EXIF plugin from some other forum software handling EXIF extensively, but I can't figure out where I saw that - so it wasn't anything I...

    Decompressing after a shoot

    +1 - but I fully get the situation from which this thread originated. If I find my desire to go out and shoot waning, I know I pushed myself too far on the whole - but usually, picking up a camera and doing in spite of my lack of enthusiasm helps anyway ... Walking around with my eyes wide open...

    Kevin, while I appreciate your continued attention to the EXIF aspect, the option I personally could really do with is being able to hide *my* EXIF data if I so choose. I wouldn't say no to a general option, but the greatest way would be a per-image (i.e. per-upload) option. And if it's not...

    Disable "Quick Sleep". I never struggled with the E-M10 in terms of responsiveness *or* battery life as long as I had it - it was a very fluid camera in use from the get-go, and the E-M5 II has even more horsepower. There's simply no need to suffer like that. Anyhow, I know from experience that...

    Very intriguing - good thinking, nice effect. Simple measures, great result. Too right ... In fact, in spite of having "inhaled" quite a bit of water today, it never seems to be enough. I'm not sure I'd like to use these ... hilarious, but bugs just ain't my thing, I guess (I know they're...

    Sorry, pretty uninspired today; the shots I intended for today's post were all framed sub-par, so I have to make do with an impression that surprised me because I had never come across it before, but it's certainly nothing special (mainly because of the haze and smoke in the image - very hot day...

    Playing with the 7Artisans 35mm f/1.2 on the Sony A6000. This one was shot wide open - I do love the dreaminess induced this way, but I honestly don't have any complaints about sharpness either ... And finally, the tractor everyone seems to be expecting these days :p (this is a SiJy 19...

    I found the juxtaposition of those two guys quite interesting - one was constantly fiddling with his gear and moving the camera (I think he was birding), the other was all but stationary, reading. One in the sun, one in the shade. In the end, it wasn't quite possible to get a truely interesting...

    Sony Sony A7R IV

    To be clear: What's happening isn't Sony's fault - quite the opposite, in fact. They did their homework extremely well, and so, the A7R IV is basically spot-on as to what the market demands or accepts at the moment. But I see the whole market moving towards a kind of monopoly or dictatorship...

    Sony Sony A7R IV

    Spot on, Antonio - that's why I hope Samyang get their act together and bring out the 35mm f/2.8 that's available for FE right now. It's a great little lens - a bit flimsy, but really good optics. And I'd love the new Sigma 45mm f/2.8 C to be available for Z mount as well ... The bridge might...

    Sony Sony A7R IV

    Maybe - but what I'd really like is a FF camera with a solid 24MP sensor (as the latest generation of Sony and Nikon cameras have) and the A7 III's (or similar) AF capabilities, but crucially, smaller, rangefinder style with a usable EVF. No crazy burst rates or anything, just reliable and fluid...

    We made it over the half-way point, and I still really like what I'm seeing - hang in there, folks, we're doing fine (even if some may struggle). I don't regret my choice, but sometimes find it quite challenging indeed - the 75mm is a fine lens, but I find pre-framing (finding shots without the...

    I wish I could share your relaxed take on things - but what with the actual developments in the ILC market (Sony gaining ever more ground, everyone else losing in spite of new - and quite good - products) I fear that something as remarkable as the Sony A7R IV will only serve to accelerate the...

    Crazy. Sony introduces the a7R IV with 61 Megapixel full-frame sensor More to the point, precisely *not* what I have been waiting for (not that there is anything particularily urgent); the fact that my whole processing chain couldn't handle those files only supports my take on this. However...

    They say that all's well that ends well - and even though I haven't seen the results yet, I enjoy shooting with the Rollei 35 SE a lot. It's a lot like a mini M6, minus the rangefinder, of course. But the build is impeccable, and while it's considerably bigger than the Minox, it's by no means...
