Re: What a difference a day makes...

Thanks Wally, very interesting.

While I don't quite understand how some of the photos illustrate the theme, they add up to quite a body of work. Which I suppose is the intention. I've only looked...

Re: Don't judge a camera by reviews, but by it's potential.

Yes, of course, but the equipment can have a big bearing on how you turn your vision into an image.

People at work often used to ask me what camera they should buy. I would tell them to get one...

Re: Godox X1T-O

I think the new Oly system, launched alongside the E-M1X, is controlled by radio rather than optically. I've no idea whether it fits with any sort of standard system though.

Re: My latest foray into FF mirrorless - and why I'm sticking with m43

I agree - I think Huw's comment sums up the pros and cons perfectly.

Re: Vintage Kit

I guess we must be of similar vintage as I started with a Garrard SP25 as well. Got fed up with it pretty quickly, I think it got replaced with another Garrard with a rather odd name like Module...

Re: Photoshop Ai enhanced RAW

If there is a difference, it looks very marginal to me and I wouldn't like to choose which one was "better". I had a little play with it on files from various cameras and didn't notice any worthwhile...

Re: Sad news about my favouriote airliner

Do they need special infrastructure at the airport to get the passengers (the "self-loading cargo" as Cabin Pressure had it) on and off the two decks at the same time? I imagine that could be quite a...

Re: Didn't see this coming..!!

I think there were some hints in among all the teasers for the new stuff, but we all paid so much attention to the E-M1X and 150-400 that we didn't really clock this. I wasn't too surprised when it...

Re: Night Views from Olympus Sydney balcony

I'm with Aussie Mark on this - the first shot works really well. It's not just a night shot, the composition fits together nicely and it has a great atmosphere.

Re: Correcting perspective

Thanks for trying it Steve. It has done the same thing as PS and LR - adjusted the horizontal lines as well as realigning the verticals so we have the same problem - it it were a photo of a building...

Re: E-M1X thoughts and excellent Dave Etchells video

I do. Not just the grip, the whole larger size of the body means that I can't hold it comfortably. I also wouldn't be able to fit it into the bags I use these days and would feel all those extra...

Re: Correcting perspective

Thanks for the comments. Derek, that's a useful comment about increasing the canvas size in PS. It always surprises me how much you seem to need.

The problem as I see it is that all the...

Thanks for the link, Dave, it is an interesting topic.

I think that (unless I missed it of course) the author overlooked something very important, which is our understanding of perspective. I have...

Re: Wex Offer...!

If you are thinking of trading in for an E-M1X, some places are offering an extra 200. I think the offer must be from Oly rather than the vendors as I have seen it several times.
