  • For once, I see no reason to install an OS-X upgrade. This is pathetic.

    And for those who claim it's free software and I shouldn't complain, no it's not free. I pay for it through the premium...

  • Great idea, well-executed.

  • Commented on An image challenge

    Such a wide variety of images have been submitted, many quite good. I hope the high scoring ones also display this variety.

  • Submitted a challenge entry MyTinyTown
    Applied tilt-shift filter in Photoshop CC 2014.

  • Can you put it on a selfie stick?

  • I'm surprised you find the Mark II better for C-AF, as it doesn't have the PDAF of the E-M1. I haven't used a Mark II, but the new firmware definitely improved my E-M1. The Mark II must be doing...

  • What fun! But, hey, guys, we're also waiting for a test of continuous AF with the E-M1’s new firmware. This would have been a good opportunity.

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    It's not just compared to "peers in the same class." It regularly gets compared to cameras costing twice or three times as much, as in this review, against the D810. Granted, it's a limited...

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    It's amazing how these cameras get slammed for "only" having 16mp when the Nikon D4s has the same resolution. Sure, it has tremendous dynamic range an low light capability, but in good light...

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    With the new 3.0 firmware, it will use PDAF at up to 9 FPS with either 4/3 or m4/3 lenses. Works great.

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    I'm a little surprised the review mentions PDAF in the A6000 and the NX1, but not the E-M1 and especially not the recent and significant firmware improvement in the E-M1.

  • Submitted a challenge entry The Tree, Sunrise
    Placed 2nd in the challenge.

  • Why didn't they just sell Aperture? Another company would be happy to take over this user base and keep a very good app on the Apple platform.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Osage Orange Trunk
    The maclura pomifera is commonly called the Osage Orange for the distinctive orange flesh just under the bark. This one is over 100 years old.

  • OK, these are better than mine. Well, most of them.

  • Commented on Perfect Timing in the Decisive moment-revisited challenge

    That's a pretty amazing capture, especially with a manual focus lens at 1.2. You get extra points for degree of difficulty.

  • Commented on Corinne in the Linkedin Headshots challenge

    That's pretty close.

    The key light was in a 22" beauty dish reflector, about 3 feet from the subject and above her. The fill light was in an umbrella, below the camera positio, the hairlight was...

    I shot this for use on a corporate website. And there is no link to preserve the privacy of the subject.
