    Advice Wanted Your quick opinion on 4/3rds

    Haro ... I would like to ask your personal opinion on getting and using the Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50-200mm f 2.8-3.5 (in my case to use in OM-1)? Would ~350 £ be a good price omfor the lens and Olympus MMF-3 adapter imported from Japan using Buyee? Also would you prefer the original (2003]...

    Pentax Thinking about Pentax again...

    I am seriously considering trading in my M43 gear (not that I have a huge amount these days) and getting back into Pentax. I always loved the colours and the handling of the cameras, and there are some serious bargains to be had now. A K5 for £150 for example, and many lenses at or below £100...

    Thinking of selling wife's gear.

    Some of you know that my wife had an accident while shooting a football game when she was knocked into a concrete apron when two players in pursuit knocked her down. She was using her Olympus OM-D Em1x with the 40-150mm 2.8 with 1.4x teleconverter. The force of the collision broke the 40-150...

    Nikon Relearning Exposures...

    It's funny, in a way, how spoiled one can be by the wonders of modern matrix and so forth metering. All of these would have been technically better shot on the D810 with no doubt. Still, good reminders that film is different and if I'm going to keep using it with the S2, I have to relearn...

    Micro 4/3 “New” Gear Options

    I have an opportunity to purchase an E-M10 II w/the 75-300 II + 14-42 EZ for below fair price, but it would mean I’m no longer saving for one of the E-M1 bodies and/or nicer weather sealed lenses. The E-M10 II option would be a fun knock around and excuse for dabbling with other inexpensive...

    Nikon Got the D810 in Hand

    My, what a beast of a camera it is at that. Noticably bigger and just that bit heavier than the D7100 but not so much as to be too much. The differences in the control layout will take some getting used to and taking real advantage of the ease of, say, adjusting WB will be something new. KEH...

    Motion controller

    I am not sure where to post this, here seemed close. It seemed interesting enough to share to me. Gerald Undone did a "first look" at a very cool, extremely well designed motion controller. A little pricey to just pick up to play with at $2500 but if you need this sort of thing it looks very...

    Infrared Gear Tiffen 80A with the FS-DP1x

    Experimenting with the 80A color correction filter on my full spectrum converted Sigma DP1x. The Foveon sensor is well-known for producing a lot of red in full spectrum mode. The 80A reduces the reds, with more yellow/orange tones. This was shot on the upper floor of the London (Ontario) Art...

    Fuji Fuji cameras and experiments with polarization

    So, recently I got a new pair of glasses. I did not get the autodarkening this time as they didn't get that dark and the price adder was more than the rest of the glasses. I did get a set of clip-ons for these glasses. For reference all my glasses come from Zenni Optical. I've also got a set...

    We're planning a big family vacation (Greece, Italy, ? - still planning). I thinking about 4 options: OM-1 / OM-5 with handheld high res 50mp. I have all the glass I need, so I'd just need the body and batteries. Handheld high res does have some issues with things ghosting with movement that...

    You may be surprised by this, but this lens is fantastic on the Z fc. I got the 18-140 f-mount to use with the Fuji Finepix S3 Pro. I then thought, I really like the range of the 18-140 on DX, so I wonder how well it would work on the Z cameras. So this week is dedicated to that combination...
