    This is Trevor a "street magician" on Vancouver's Robson St. These were shot with G1 and the 45-200 zoom. I really like the lens.

    Best regards Terry.

    Great portraits Terry. I continue to be impressed with the performance of the two Panny kit lenses for the G1. Really sharp.

    Thank you Carl,

    I agree with your assessment. I quite like shooting with both lenses, especially the size of each. I hope we see the 20mm and short zoom soon!

    I have the Nikkor 80-400 and it is a monster compared to the Panny 45-200 and is much slower focusing. One thing for sure, is the G1 for certain applications is IMHO the right camera.

    Best regards. Terry.

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

    I find it puzzling that some users complain that it is not a fast action camera because the viewfinder blanks out during writes. Often, these are M8 users. The M8 shoots at a maximum of 2 fps versus 3 fps for the G1 and if the subject is moving there is no way you can achieve 2 fps while refocusing as the subject moves toward you. The AF of the G1 will keep the subject in focus and while you temporarily may lose the subject in the VF, if you hand hold like a P&S using the LCD you can easily see both the subject and keep tracking and shooting using the AFC to keep focus.

    Clearly a true OVF DSLR has less blackout and this is an area that Panasonic needs to improve. The day will come when EVF beats OVF in every aspect. Blackout will be minimal, resolution will be very high with smooth full motion and the image light intensification will be good enough to see in virtual darkness with only starlight for illumination or a true infrared illumination that won't be in the visible spectrum. Having used special forces night optics I know what is possible and this is still a long way from what we are capable in the military. The technology will trickle down.

    Every SLR I've ever used has blackout while the mirror is lifted. I don't get the big deal.

    Maybe some people just have to complain about something and this is all they could find?

    Kevin, nice, tight portrait!

    Clay, especially your second tree image (with hte bike) is very good, a wonderful feeling of light and space.

    Blackout: what blackout?.... For years, I shot with a Hasselblad, where the mirror just stayed up after the exposure, until you recocked the camera. THAT was blackout.....

    Just a light sprinkling by many standards but the whole country seems to have ground to a halt. Currently hailing cats and dogs at the moment, great fun!

    So vivek... would you have posted this if it wasn't a

    "50% crop of a shot taken with Olympus' fuzzy lens pen F 42/1.2 on G1 through a couple of thick glass windows."

    can we get back to the business of taking real photos?

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

    I do not understand, Kevin. Why pick on me for posting gear details while you yourself do that. I would strongly suggest that you take up your woes with the site management.

    Whatever threads you start and views you have on the m4/3rds or related discussions do not bother me. Some get inspired by some gear and others get inspired by being a partially anti gear to certain types of gear. If anything makes you use your camera (whatever that is), great.

    If you have any criticism/comments about the picture, I welcome that.

    To answer your question, yes, I would have still posted it if I had taken that with a pinhole on tintype medium.

    What Helen suggested, I am also eagerly awaiting to see some pics of a real event in Paris. Had it not been for busy weekends, I would hop on the Thalys and make a day trip just to get a chance to shoot the protests, with the G1, of course!

    Vivek... not picking on you for posting gear details..

    and I am not at all anti m4/3rds... Its just the mass hysteria that seems to have consumed this forum over the last few months

    I have admired many of your photos but unfortunately this one seemed to have no apparent merit beyond the fact it happened to be taken with that particular combination
    . which didnt seem to show the camera or the lens in a particularly favorable light.

    Feel free to come and visit the Paris protests... they happen most weeks :-)

    Just bring your gas mask, hard hat and the titanium shell for the G1... the CRS - french riot police - don't play softball

    anyway... here is a shot from a real event in Paris... a memorial parade for some poor guy that passed our window and had me running into the street... For the record... it was almost dark and I had the 12-60 on the Oly510...

    peace

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

    I think you are confusing gear with my photo. I am happy with it for what it is and whether I used a pen F lens or G1 it hardly matters to me.

    If it does not work for you fine.

    What would make you think that my gear is worth more than photo? If you can articulate what made you think that photo is what you say it is (which is unclear to me, btw) it would be useful (please no value based comparisons of photos and gear which is frankly ridiculous).

    OK, Brian, tell all. Was it just the excellent lens (and at what aperture etc.) or is there some extra PP "cuisine" there we'd like to know about?

    More beach shots from the other coast -

    I decided to take a drive to Point Reyes today. I went by way of Stinson Beach. Last time I lived out here I vowed that I wouldn't do the drive as a passenger ever again. There is something about that road that really makes me sick. OK, now I'm not doing that road anymore as the driver! Still felt nauseous! The road that leads to the lighthouse was closed and you could only get there by shuttle bus...not a chance today

    A new take on picnic at the beach.....

    LOL---but you know---I often forget I have one. I am getting used to shooting with the G1 and really enjoy it, but do forget about the LCD at times. It is SO nice on tripod (IF one remembers). Old habits die really hard.

    Thanks mark and m3photo, this was a single handheld shot... 1/1000s f/6.3 at 35.0mm iso100

    The lens makes such a huge difference imho - very expensive, but you do get what you pay for.

    Haven't you heard, small sensors are not supposed to get narrow DOF.
