Re: In praise of Tarkovsky

Re-awakening this old thread, as there was a superb The Film Programme recently on Radio 4 about a writer's (Moira Buffini) relationship with Stalker over the years, presaging Chernobyl, amongst...

Re: Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8

I recently got the 12-100mm f4 after using the 12-35mm and 35-100mm f2.8 pair for years. I haven't used the latter much recently, but will probably hang onto them for when I need wider apertures, and...

Re: Lower EVF mag. much better for eye-glass wearers.

It's down to the optical design of the EVF. It's not so much the magnification as the eye relief as it's known. Some EVFs have the focal point further out from the EVF lens. I've not had any problem...

FastStone Image Viewer finally supports monitor profiles

Whoo hooo, lucky version 7 *chr I've been waiting for years for FastStone, my favourite Windows image browser to support monitor profiles, so full colour management. It's had partial colour...

Re: Panny 12-32mm, bargain at Bristol Cameras.

I got a second hand immaculate one back in 2017 for 120, so that's a great price. Mine is the all black plastic one. It's pretty sharp at 12mm, less so at 32mm, but I bought it mainly to turn my old...

Re: Olympus OM 1n body

David, I've got my brother's black OM2n if that might be of interest? It needs a good clean, but the paint is sound. The shutter seems fine, and the meter runs OK off my X700 batteries (357) which I...

Re: Police stop & ID in U.K. shopping centres?

I was stopped in February at the newly reopened Westgate shopping centre in Oxford by a security guard. It is private property. I thought it was because I looked like I was photographing the...

Re: 40-150mm f3.5-4.5 ZD 4/3 and 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 ZD 4/3

Not really Rebnats. They are 4/3 lenses for the Olympus DSLR bodies, now no longer made. You can use them on Micro 4/3, but need an adapter like the MMF-3, which makes them about 15mm longer. They...

Re: External SSD's

HDDs are fine if you don't rely on one copy, which you shouldn't regardless of the media. A good HDD backup routine will be more effective and cheaper. SSDs have a relatively short life if used...

Re: Backpack - again!

If you are interested, I got a free warranty replacement that I posted for sale here a while back, still available for 65 plus postage:

Re: Backpack - again!

The Benro CW200 Cool Walker Backpack may fit the bill. I did a review of it on DPR:

Re: E-M1 Mark II UK introductory events

Ian, I'm not sure you need to book for any of these? I didn't. I went to LCE Reading yesterday, where Chris was helpful, but admitted he wasn't a serious photographer, and only had the 12-40. I tried...

Re: Anyone any experience with smart device car audio?

I wouldn't buy anything now without DAB, or easily upgraded (you need a new aerial). Most new DAB units are also DAB+ compatible too - used in some European countries and maybe here eventually. It's...

Re: Disintegrating Lens Cap and Hood on 12 ~ 40 Pro Lens

I've heard of quite a few doing this sadly. A warranty claim is worth a try, as they are obviously prone to it. I think there was a problem with the type of glue they used.

Re: HDR Projects 4

Give LR and PS a good try first, the merge to HDR does a pretty good job now, particularly on Raws. You can then edit the merged Raw like any other files, but with much greater dynamic range. I...

Re: Sharpness

Don't forget the Clarity slider in LR too, which adds local contrast, and adds punch. It needs balancing against sharpening. The new Dehaze slider can be powerful too, used in moderation.

Re: Best tablet to use with an EM1?

That's a bargain Phill! The main criticism of it is the price, and it's a bit big for most people. It's basically a bigger Note 10.1 2014. Happy Christmas! :)

Re: Best tablet to use with an EM1?

Good point about fingerprints, I'm very fussy about that too, but usually wipe my finger before using it. The Gorilla Glass 3 on the Tab S has an impressive coating which feels silky smooth, and...

Re: Best tablet to use with an EM1?

It's still a lot better than most Phill. It has the same 2560 x 1600 resolution (in a slightly smaller size), and similar processing power and 3GB RAM. Only you can judge. Somewhere like PC World...

Re: V2.0 + IS + Magnify

It doesn't seem any different to me. I assign Magnify to Fn1. One press brings up the green frame, which can be moved or resized. Another press magnifies to the frame. Another long press dismisses...
