    Gx100/Gx200

    All ,
    the Gx100 thread started by Wouter seems to have halted somewhere.
    The suggestion was made to rename the thread GX100/GX200 . Well I'll start it running with these shots from my GX100 taken in Framura,Monterosso and Chiaravalle della Colomba:-







    Last two taken using the Nikon WC-e68 wide angle converter.
    Rest of the pix here:-

    Re: Gx100/Gx200

    Excellent start Paul. After a month of waiting for my GX100 replacement, and the holiday season, I am trying to get familiair with the GX200. It looks the same, it handles the same, but the results are not quite the same though in my opinion. I have to change my workflow too.









    And a color photograph for a chance.

    Wouter what an marvellous set you have posted. Lady with the black Clogs and the sunset over the pier are great and my faves- All are lovely though.

    Thanks for sharing!

    BTW the second shot of mine was also using the Nikon WC-e68 converter. Thanks for the comment Wouter.

    all the best

    Re: Gx100/Gx200

    Smart one Kevin, I use both the EVF and the LCD, it really depends upon how i can get around the subject in Macro. My legs arent so good lately for crouching down! So the LCD then gets used. Sure would be nice to have a folding LCD on the Ricoh.

    Wouter those shots are really good. I couldn't bring myself to comment at first because I found it so moving seeing the old soldier remembering his comrades. They had to fight it out unsupported because the reinforcements never managed to break through to help.
    "Of approximately 10,600 men of the 1st Airborne Division and other units who fought north of the Rhine, 1,485 had died and 6,414 were taken prisoner, of whom one third were wounded."

    With the ambition to reach Berlin before Christmas '44, and the personal battle between Montgomery and Patton, these men paid a heavy price. So much went wrong, and these men were so generous to sacrifice their lives for our freedom.

    Thank you both for your comments, Helen and Will.

    Wouter I love the the last of the WW2 commemoration shots the best. Outstanding photo. My sister actually got to sing at the 50 year anniversary of D-Day at Normandy with her school back in 1994. Apparently it was a great celebration with many of the WW2 vets seeing each other again and sharing in military camaraderie again for the first time in years. Great shots again though.

    I shot this on my GX100 (ISO 100 with the flash) at 70mm using a CV 75mm OVF, and then played around with it in the demo version of Nik Silver Efex which gives a really nice amount of control over B&W conversion.

    Hello All,
    Thanks, Wouter.

    There was some interesting chit chat in another thread concerning the general madness of mankind, vis a vis the American state tax on wooden arrows and whether it did or did not have an influence on the recent bank bail out vote in the Senate.
    Well, 200 years ago we in the U.K. had a tax on windows, causing many windows to be bricked up! It did lead to some interesting trompe l'oeil, however, this one in Bath.
    GX100.
    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.

    Hello All, Thanks, Wouter and Guy.
    Nice joke, Dale!
    I just got Photoshop Elements6, so had to try a panorama. This is 5 vertical shots with GX100 and it stitched together rather well. I merely cloned a few clouds into LH stretch of sky. Then I monotoned (mononotised?) it and to me it ended up looking like an illustration from a child's book of fairy stories. In fact these are the vegetable allotments just up a disused railway walk not far from my flat.
    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.

    Thanks Guy!

    The GX200 is an amazing camera. The first few weeks with the camera (on vacation) were amazing. The camera is much faster than the GX100, and the screen is so much better too. After the vacation I was disappointed, because the photographs were not like I had expected. There was more noise in the blue channel, also at lower ISO's and I couldn't use my preferred B&W conversion in Lightroom.
    Now after three months of using this camera I really start to like it. I changed my conversion technique in Lightroom to some degree, and started to use Silver Efex Pro more often too in Photoshop. And some slight overexposing seems to improve the final image quality too.

    Wouter, this shot (sun through the trees) is stunning. A small sensor shouldn't be able to deal with that lighting. Or maybe it is actually better for it. Or maybe you just know what you're doing

    Paul,
    Ta, re panoramas this turned out to be a doddle in PS Elements6. I took 6 pics overlapping by half, put into Elements6, pressed the photomerge panorama button, and this was the result.
    Like me, Bath has changed a bit in the last 30 years. Right now, with the great good timing of humankind, just as the credit crunch finally hits the fan, another temple to the twin gods of Shopping and Mammon is being erected. Shot through the bus window on the way home with GX100 ( had for 9 months and no problems).
    P.S. Is your your endquote a conceptual joke!
    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.
