Beautiful images Arne. I love the abstract ice patterns. I agree that the G1 kit lens is really something special.

Thank you, Carl. For the modest outlay the kit lens is hard to beat. FWIW, mine performs somewhat better in the close range than at distance.

Love the ice abstracts Arne! The second one in your last post is my favorite.

Carl, the first image in #49 is beautiful. The green is vibrant and natural, and the whole shot makes a 3D impression.


My 70 year old dad thought I was loony for making manually focused, film photos while he was having fun with a whole new class of digital camera:

Amin, I'm just a year older than your father and I share his sentiments and good taste in cameras. I only shoot film when I'm feeling nostalgic and I also use a red G1.

Carl, that's really neat . I remember my father shooting film with a Nikon SLR when I was very young. He transitioned to digital with the Canon D30, and before the G1 had a 20D. I pre-ordered a 5D II for him, but when he tried the G1, he had me cancel the 5D II order. I don't remember him ever liking a camera this much.

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

When I go visit my dad and bring along an old Leica or a Nicca (what he used in the Korean war) he isn't much interested. But if I bring out the D700 suddenly he wants to talk cameras.

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

This is a great thread to watch. It looks like the G1 is becoming a popular camera and something of a cult camera what with all of the adapters coming out. I might have to look more deeply into it.

I feel like just a kid at only 58, but I'm also shooting a red G1. Glad to know I'm coming up in such good company.

Hi Bill
It's only you oldies that are brave enough to use the red one. Youngsters like me (56) can only really countenance black.

Ahh yes, we "oldies" are indeed brave. We have also shed those conservative inhibitions that torment you young whippersnappers. No more boring black cameras for us!.

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

My father called me after receiving the Panasonic 50-200 yesterday. He told me that he took the lens out and immediate made some photos inside the house with the light low and his hands "shaking like crazy" (dad has always had a shake). He couldn't believe the shots all came out sharp. He never said much about the IS in his Canon 17-55. 70-200, or 100-400, so I was a bit surprised to hear him so impressed with the results of MegaOIS.

I asked him if he liked the lens overall (image quality, feel, performance), and he said "it's the best thing I have seen in forty years". How's that for an endorsement? Next time we speak, I've got to remember to ask him what it was he liked so much 40 years ago .

Dang. You guys make the G1 sound downright fun. My red copy arrives Tuesday, but I have to go to NY on Tuesday for a few days. It would have been nice to have the camera to learn and play with on those long flights and in Manhattan. My Ricoh GX200 will have to suffice

Actually, there was a bit of subterfuge on my part. The day the G1 came out in Japan I showed some pictures of it to my wife. When she said I should get a red one, I took that as an order and immediately ran to the store and got one. Since it was her idea that I get the red one, she couldn't complain that I had bought yet another camera. Mission accomplished!

I do like the red one though. I'm anxious to see how it looks with my M glass mounted on it.

Me: " Oh sweetheart, you look so out of this world with this new red shirt, stunning."
She: " Oh darling so sweet"
Me: " But this damned cam cannot reproduce such intense colors, all so pale..."
She: " No prob sweetheart go and take a new cam which can !"

Yes, i am familiar with that !

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

One of my favorite San Francisco treats is the Saturday morning farmers market at the Ferry Building. Yesterday was the first time I got there. For those not familar with or from this area of California, there is a tremendous amount of farming close by. Just one from yesterday as the angle of the light and shadows made it hard to shoot....I liked the farm name....

Nicely composed shot Terry. Farmers markets are a great place to shop, socialize, and of course take photos.

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

Hi Klaus
I like the vegetables . . . I'm not usually popular if I post ageing vegetables (the boss gets stroppy!).

It was very dark here today . . . so that for the most, ISO 400 with the 50mm macro at f2 yielded a shutter speed of about 1/80th. But the dog needed walking anyway.

here are some black and whites with the G1 and the Olympus 50mm macro
all at 400 ISO, mangled, and without noise reduction

Ah! now we can really agree about something! I don't like them either . . . . but hear what Carl says, this one is excellent in good light (well, everything except Mall lighting). . .and the viewfinder is much much MUCH bigger and easier to manual focus that the E520 / E420. I don't like it in low light for people, but other than that it does work well.

I was going to say the same. He's always in the water, isn't he?? That lens was just right for his portrait.

Thanks Jono, but I'll pass on the offer of the dog. My son has one that also rolls in nasty things and then comes in and transfers the "roll ons" to our carpet. Makes my wife go !

Hi Diane - now you understand why he is always wet - there is a big pond a few minutes from home, and if he's rolled in anything then sticks get thrown in until he's clean.

Hi Carl. Your mild is my brrrrrr.
It's sort of rainy here today so I spent time at the camera shop putting various Oly lenses on my G1.

Anyone looking for the 45-200 they do have one more in stock.

Not meant to be a great shot. Just a test with the Hoya R72.
IR with the G1 at !SO 800, no NR pp applied,
.4 second, handheld,
Custom WB on green.

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

Is that a dog . . . or a polar bear
Whatever, it's amazingly compliant, my dog would be trying to eat the camera if I did that . . . did you anesthetize her/him first?

So, this implies that the G1 has a reasonable amount of IR sensitivity? I am surprised as many newer cameras have the IR wavelengths almost totally cut out.

What are you thoughts of the g1 as and IR camera?

Thanks,

Hi Doug,
I don't think its very IR sensitive, comparing it to the one camera I owned, Oly C2100 which really allowed hand held shots. It seems to be on a par with other cameras in my experience. But what surprised me was the cleanness of the ISO 800 image. This was the stickler with the other cameras- noisy skies and fuzzy trees. In very bright sun and mostly on a tripod it could be nice.
I keep toying with the idea of getting a IR dedicated camera. But money, money!

I've thought about converting an original D70 I have to IR but haven't gotten around to it. Of course, the reason I am working towards a G1 is equipment weight reduction, and carrying a separate body around just for IR would be going in the other direction :-).

I hear you about the money, that's the only reason I don't have a G1 yet.

Thanks for the reply,
Doug

Never meet a lab I did not like. Great breed in dogs. I had a chocolate female and she still brings back great memories for my family. We lost her in a freak accident a couple years ago at a kennel.

Exactly. I had my old 10D converted to IR. Its a nice IR camera, takes all my Canon mount lenses and all work except the Sigma 12-24 for whatever reason. However, though it was fun in the beginning, when it comes down to carrying an extra body---I find I just don't. I had a recent trip to north Florida--probably would have been a good place for IR, but in the end I left it home and took the 5D, 400D and G9 (Had I had the G1, it would have been the 5D and G1 *smile*---maybe even just the G1 LOL).

I've shot a good bit of IR with various cameras and Hoya R72 filters--that doesn't interest me much anymore either, but though its nice to shoot IR handheld, carrying a separate body or shooting ONLY IR also doesn't appeal to me.f AND--I, too, am trying to downsize my gear while maintaining the IQ and fun factor I want.

Christmas is coming ... and now my family booked me for intense fotowork. Nothing i dont like but this will reduce my fun-time-for-forum-reading.

So take this. It will keep your home in good shape and will chase away all bad ghosts

Labradors are quite small dogs



Actually, they are lap dogs

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

Ok so here is how it goes... a procession of a couple hundred people appear outside our apartment. I grab the 510, chuck on the 12-60 and dash out

of course its dusk in december in Paris... so its 1600 ISO aperture priority and hope for the best.. too dark for good autofocus.

a little PP in Aperture and here we are... not sharp but there is something there... or so I think

see the rest at
