Re: Le Brexit, what could possibly go wrong!

I always thought marrying a beautiful French woman was a wise move, but I'm even more grateful now than I once was. I hope I don't have to flee to "the hexagon", but things are looking pretty grim...

Re: The Painter's Studio

It's a room in the Norsk Folkemuseum, Oslo. If you've ever been to Beamish, it's a bit like that but larger and less packed with visitors. Interesting place.

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

I think the problem Phil is simply volume. The imaging (camera) divisions of both Olympus and Panasonic are small compared to their parent companies and neither do the design nor manufacture of...

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

There are a number of alarming Sony stories. The one about their cameras being "weather resistant" when actually they leak water like the Titanic is about the worst.

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

My biggest gripe about the RX100 wasn't its IQ, but its handling. Hated it. If they could find a designer who is a *real* photographer, I'm sure they could make it appeal to a much broader...

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

Pistnbroke - I agree! I think the benefits of m43 tend to become apparent to experienced photographers who understand a few important points:

- They understand that ultimate image IQ is not the...

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

I sort of agree Paul - but cameras are not sold because they're "adequate"; they're sold because they are competitive with alternative offerings. It's a ratchet and it's Darwinian. That's the way...

Re: Thom Hogan slams Olympus M 4/3

For what it's worth, I think Hogan's right. There's no good technological reason why m43 should be languishing at 16 or 20 Mp. The Sony 1" BSI sensors (RX100 et al) are at 20Mp but have an area...

Re: Printing very large!

When upsizing, the trick is to use interpolation to add pixels that wouldn't otherwise be there. Bi-cubic interpolation is the most common. This means that you'll be seeing apparently more DPI than...

Talking Re: Flickr for beginners

If you use Lightroom then you can upload directly from the gallery view. The Adobe included plug-in is OK, but Jeffrey Friedl's plug in is way better. It's donationware and you only need pay what...
