I had the Olympus M-5 and M10- first editions and never had any issues with either. However I had the Panasonic 100-400 mm lens and it was dead within 2 years after normal use.
Love the story and the photograph!
My old instamatic couldn't take a quick video and upload it to the internet instantly. I wouldn't be caught out in public without my phone on hand. Great tool. But I wouldn't have a toolbox with only 1 tool in it either.
I was at my great grandchild's birth (I am a young great grandmother lol) and got some great shots with my Fuji X-T2 but when the battery died I grabbed my cell phone and got the best shot of all- my granddaughter holding her daughter for the first time and a short video of my son holding his granddaughter. No time to change batteries on the Fuji to catch either of those moments. Is it technically perfect- absolutely not but it holds up well next to no photo at all and it captured the moment under poor lighting conditions.
What a heartbreaking story! There are many things in life that we can not control so try to put your guilt aside and hang on to the good memories. My heart goes out to you.
Bob- those are stunning! I miss being in Az during the monsoons.
Gorgeous! The immature one looks a bit like a Golden Eagle don't you think?
Gorgeous!! Does that lens EVER go on sale :)
I recently got rid of my older, very large Epson printer and bought a Canon Pixima iP110 portable photo printer. It weighs about 4 pounds, very small footprint and will print up to 8x11. It's a high resolution printer that does a decent job and pretty much matches what I see on my computer screen- yay!
Really all I want to do is print some 5x7 pictures to send to family AND get a preview of the image file before I send it off to an Internet print service. My thought is to have a look and see what it will look like in print before I invest the $ getting a large print.
I have the Tamron 100-400 mm lens and while it gets good sharp images some of the time it's not consistent and it's fussy about low light, low contrast, high contrast conditions and anything moving quickly. So if the light is right and the focus is behaving I have gotten some really nice, sharp images. Enough really good images to keep the lens. However I would not recommend it without reservations. If you get it I would strongly recommend a tripod collar to balance out the lens using a tripod, monopod or pistol grip. Your choice of a long lens is very limited in the weight and price categories.
Maybe friendship and the emotions that go with that.
Your timing was impeccable:) What a wingspan! Great catch.
This is a very appealing image. I like the older vehicle in the background. The car is pretty cool too. Well done.
