    Post-Processing on Chromebook - Mostly Snapseed

    I’m more interested in color gamut, i.e, how much of sRGB and Adobe RGB is covered.

    Cool. Good to know. Chromebooks are interesting budget machines. Do any of them have decent displays?

    Looking for help.... how to gets pics off of late 1990's "Intel Minicard" memory cards?

    Maybe call your library at your nearest big city or university. Being able to read data from old technology is an important part of being a library these days.

    Which superzoom for an African safari?

    My friend is planning his first trip to Africa and is asking for advice about super zoom cameras (he has an older Pentax DSLR that he does not use all that much). He's smitten with the Canon SX60 because of its 65x zoom. It's only got a 1/2.3" sensor though, and I'm telling him to consider a...

    Micro 4/3 Initial impressions of the GX85

    The K5 is a bit better for image quality, I think, Sue, but not by a large margin, slightly more “organic” look to the files, a touch better in low light. But in nearly every other aspect - AF, speed, video, etc - the G9 is a step forward, as you would expect a newer camera to be. Oh, there’s...

    Micro 4/3 Initial impressions of the GX85

    I’ve been shooting with the GX85 since 2016. It replaced Pentax as my motorcycle travel camera. Image quality was a step behind my Pentax K-3/K-5 but smaller kit size and 4k video were important to me. I’d say that the GX85 is around K-x level in Pentax land, which is good enough for my...

    I just started seeing ads for that camera. I'd never heard of it before. I don't play an instrument, nor do I have aspirations of being a YouTube star, but it does look interesting... But don't get it. OK?

    GR III - it's coming.

    My long departed Ricoh GX100 remains, after all of these years, one the most singularly focused photographic tools I've used. On that alone, I'm willing to give Ricoh the benefit of the doubt on the GR III interface changes. I can't wait until it gets into the hands of real photographers.
