    Really nice change of pace with this blog entry. I had no idea that Griffin made the wonderfully interesting Sriracha documentary. His earlier Lumix videos really demonstrate cinematography for the GH series. The "Hand Cut" video really showcases many strengths of the GH5. Makes me yearn for a well aged…

    I found the video on setting up my G85/FL360L for off-camera flash to be very helpful. I'm wanting to shoot macros using the flash-off camera, with the camera to manual (ss 160, f 11). How do I control the intensity of the on camera flash pop-up flash? Can I control…

    Dan, Yes, to eliminate confounding factors, I've left the limiter on the PL 100-400mm to Full even though the firmware update, as you say, fixed this. I'll think about trying the Panasonic GH8 body but for now, I'm going to talk with Adorama where I bought the lens & see…

  • Photo Hero or Photo Zero: Two Points of View

    A new company recently came to my attention and they’re making a lot of professional photographers unhappy these days. It’s called Unsplash and it’s nothing more than a very well done website that specializes in giving away FREE photography. Their tag line is, “Beautiful, free photos. Gifted by the world’s…

  • Copyright Your Pictures Now It’s Super Easy

    I’ve been telling our NE Explorers since I began teaching, “You should copyright your pictures.” And now it’s so easy, a photographer would be crazy not to do it. All due to the new service called Binded. Even more unbelievable is the fact Binded’s service is free. Not the registration…

  • Steve Curran Wonders About UV for Leica 100-400mm lens

    Steve, not sure what you are referring to as far as me stating I might decide not to use a UV protector for the 100-400mm. If I wrote that, I must have been thinking I didn’t want any additional glass and that comment most likely was referring to the prototype…
