  • Mike G says:

    It amazes me that no manufacturer has made a large sensor (say 1", m43, or APSC size) point and shoot, other than one expensive model by Leica. All of the weather sealed options have the very small sensors (1/2.3 or 1/1.7) that were relevant 10+ years ago. I always thought…

    We have the Lumix FZ300. After hearing raves about this camera as a great point and shoot, we have been trying to use it on a tripod. It simply will not focus any closer than about 2'-0", maybe 18" in macro mode. I have taken the camera to Mike's Camera,…

  • Camera weather sealing, do we need to worry?

    One of the benefits of the Olympus and Lumix Micro Four Thirds cameras is their superior weather sealing. Most models from these two manufacturers are so good I no longer even think about putting them away in inclement weather. Having such faith shooting in rain or snow for the last…

  • Did Olympus throw in the towel too early?

    Leaders in the mirrorless world When Olympus announced they were quitting the photography business, many were taken by surprise. Especially me.
