I have two camera bodies: OM-1 and Fuji X-T5.
I want to upgrade a long lens to either the Olympus 300mm f/4 or Fujinon XF 150-600 f/5.6-8 lens.
I am mostly interested in anyone who has experience with these two lenses and their evaluation of image quality. (I am not that interested in BIF so...
After over thirty years away from film I have returned to my Nikon F4 and loaded a roll of Fomapan. It felt so good tor return to get back to the old ways of film.
Bacon Butties and strong Italian coffee!
I took the hound to the Long Mynd ("Long Mountain") yesterday and here's a few piccies wot I took!
Walking along Cardingmill Valley floor. There were a number of school visits around doing their Geography field trips so the valley floor was crowded. However; as a retired teacher I know how...
After much consideration I am adding a Gh6 to my 2 G9's and Gx85. And although I have a 12-35 I and the Oly 9-18, I am adding the PL 12-60 and 8-18mm to my other 8 lenses (basically for video with the Gh6). With the AI noise reduction and enlargement provided by my On1 programs I can't think of...

The theme of my early morning devotional last Wednesday was "patient endurance." I remember thinking: "doesn't sound like fun to me."
At noon, coming back from a doctor's appointment, the better half says, "better check your messages." There is a call from an editor at The Conservationist...
This challenge's theme is Long Exposure.
The challenge starts today and ends on Sunday, March 22, 2020.
The tried and trusted rules are as follows:
1. Either take pictures that match the nominated theme or select some from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the images...
I mentioned previously that I'm sending my M10 for a warranty claim to adjust the light meter - it seems to be overexposing by about 1-2 stops.
I've had this camera for over a year, and during the early months I was also messing about with a Black Pro-Mist filter. I noticed from the...
It's close to six months I've been shooting Leica M, and it's going ever so strongly. I got two new Cosina Voigtländer lenses (in 21 mm and 50 mm) on order to fill out my lens catalogue -- with a serious 75 mm lens it'll be complete for me.
Life's pretty great. Leica Q still shoots amazing...
For years now, I’ve had a mad, passionate love affair with superzoom cameras. I argue that they are, quite simply, the most versatile cameras on the planet: they will deliver 20-something millimeter equivalent wide angle views when you need them and yet, without changing lenses, draw you close...
Move Along Now. 25seconds f/9 ISO200 shot at 40mm.
Taken on the same night as day 30. Was really enjoying the longer exposure images. You could do these one right after the other and no 2 would look alike. I think I'm going to make a thread and post some more of the shots for the last two...
This is a long exposure (night) shot. This was the least noisy of several I shot and was a 10 sec exposure at F2.0.
I set the camera up before sundown and could have done better with the framing as I was shooting blind tonight at 10:30 pm.
This is a long exposure night shot. After trying a few exposures this result, 10 sec at F2.0, was the best.
Lighting was incandescent inside - no flash used. I was not sure if there would be enough IR to give an image.
Interesting is the narrow patch of garden outside lit by a mix of...
