    Vivek,
    I liked your bicycle take one better because you weren't so close to the subject and it showed the backdrop of where the lady was coming from. There was also something special about the stern look of the woman in bicycle 1. Wouldn't it be fun to a series like this?

    Thanks, Cindy.

    In the first one, actually, that lady was smiling but due to lower shutter speed (despite the OIS gizmo), can't see the expression clearly.

    I have my own problems with the AF of the G1. It controls what I do than the other way around.

    The one distinction is that with the kitzoom plus the 0.7x wide adapter and the Angenieux 25/0.95 people do notice that I am taking photos and look directly into the camera.

    Vivek, you repeatedly prove how the G1 is usable for moving subjects in manual focus mode, or else you are just extremely lucky. Interesting highlight on the right handlebar.

    Thanks Brian! Yes I felt that pushing the black the way to go (just needed a second set of eyes on that). Guy suggested an additional tweak. Glad you liked the first photo. I did too.

    That is flare or "glow".

    I feel extremely lucky when I am out with a camera and could make my snaps.

    Took a long walk through Dovedale yesterday - beautiful landscape area.

    G1 + 4/3rds adapter + ZD 7-14...


    G1 + 4/3rds adapter + PL 14-150 OIS...


    Both developed with Qimage Studio, finished in LightZone.

    That ZD is one HELLUVA lens (and the Leitz ain't bad either). Nice compositions.

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Thought I would join in with some G1 shots I have from this trip to our Moab workshop. Tried a few Leica lenses and some with the kit lenses and pretty impressed by the kit lens actually. Really a fun camera, I did stop shooting it yesterday as I lent it to a workshop member since I was not happy with his camera since it was not functioning well.

    Couple more. I have more to process and when I get home will have many more to post So far though the quality of files is really nice. My biggest issue is raw processing and I hate ACR for it. May have to load Silky Pix or something

    Guy, amazing scenery (especially the last image) - I wish I could have been there! you mention disliking ACR, which raw converter do you prefer?

    I'm using Qimage Studio (PC specific) and then Lightzone to PP my G1 images, and Faststone image viewer has just been updated to allow very fast browsing of raw files too.

    Cheers

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Recently, I got Wolfgang Rabe's c-mount adapter. A couple of shots using it and a Xenoplan 25mm f/1.9 lens. Both b/w jpgs out of the G1 worked and resized in PS.

    Bicyclist Take 3

    G1, ISO100, 1/800s, f/1.9


    G1, ISO100, 1/100s, f/1.9

    BTW, the lens covers the whole frame with no vignetting. It is very tiny and weighs 90gms (~105gms with the adapter)

    Been away for a bit. Guy, the shots of the red rocks are absolutely fabulous. I see you're getting to like this new picture taker. Thanks for sharing.

    Vivek, nice catch of the man on the bus (or train) and the cyclist. Very nice lens.


    Mawz, great snow shot. Reminds me of my youth in Malone, NY (without the tram, of course).

    Thanks Brian i just need to settle in a Raw conversion package that I like. My biggest issue is it is not supported by C1 in which I have the most experience and my raw processor of choice with my MF system. Myself I like to keep my computers really clean with software and stuff. I may play with Silky Pix or my other favorite is Raw Developer. Lightroom I have removed from my systems. I will post a bunch more when the workshop is over and have some real time to work these files and figure out and come up with some idea's for the G1 folks

    Hey Guy, that mirror shot it great. Was it posed or candid?

    Is the E420 still allowed in the 4/3 thread? I know it's not a G1, but here's one with the pancake anyway.

    (Rayqual adapter almost on doorstep. G1 coming next week, I hope. CV 15 ready, and the WATE I bought almost 2 years ago, partly because of Guy's warm praise. A lot of fun coming!)

    @Clay: That's a great minimalist shot. Looking forward to trying out the Oly pancake on my G1 (Just need to find that MA1 adaptor, it's rare in these parts)

    @Klaus: A great candid.

    And some more snow for you:

    Mawz, that first shot of yours is great.
    A probably dumb question ;if you use leica or zeiss ,legacy? lenses on the 4:3 sensor is it giving its intended performance or a slightly better one because of the sensor size ,.....isnt the performance of a lens the sum of all its glass;full frame for full frame,4:3 to 4:3?



























































    if this is true then you are testing something other than that you think you are,no?

    Well, you're getting the 4/3rds frame cropped out of the centre of the 35mm frame (assuming a 35mm format lens design) when using FF lens designs on 4/3rds (Note that this isn't just adapted lenses, many of the Sigma 4/3rds mount lenses are actually 35mm FF designs).

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    I thought I would post some fun pictures shot from an airplane, through the window. These are shots of Southern California's inland empire. I was landing at Ontario airport and flying in alongside the San Bernadino Mountains. For those that have never seen this part of Southern California, about 1.5M people live in the area. You are seeing only a small part of it and houses go on forever in every direction. All were shot with the kit lens at either 45mm or 14mm max aperture and ISO 100.

    Finally here are some crops from the 14mm files. I had to recompress the compressed files so you get quite a few artifacts from the compression in order to get unde the 244KB file limits.

    Nice pictures.

    The California 500 is coming up in a couple of weeks !!

    We went two years ago and I got lots of great pictures. Didn't have a 4/3 camera then. Had to use a Nikon.

    I need to get a polarizer, especially when you try those arial shots. The windows are a little cloudy too so both effect image quality.
