Friday image No.020

I have been working on a book which discusses how to improve your photography and which takes a different approach to the more usual "instruction manual" format. On reviewing the draft my Editor helpfully commented that perhaps I should drag myself out of my Landscape comfort zone and sample some of my own medicine. So … Continue reading Friday image No.020

Panasonic GM1 First Thoughts – part 2

In my previous post I looked at the size of the GM1 in comparison to the LX7. In this post I will look at my thoughts around image quality. Right up front I should say that this camera is in another league when compared to the LX7, but then you would expect it to be. … Continue reading Panasonic GM1 First Thoughts – part 2

Panasonic GM1 First Thoughts

As regular readers will know, I recently splashed out on the purchase of a Panasonic GM1 camera. If you are not familiar with the GM1, it is possibly the smallest Micro 43 system camera that you can buy. My thinking was that I would use it as a backup to my main Olympus EM5, a … Continue reading Panasonic GM1 First Thoughts

Friday image No.018

This is another of my images from last week's London trip. For those of you not familiar with the skyline, the large domed building is the Gherkin. And the building in front of it covered in ducting and cranes is Lloyds of London which I'm sure must be pretty well known around the world (if … Continue reading Friday image No.018

The Need for Enjoyment

So, here I am in London with a couple of friends for the day and our sole purpose is to enjoy ourselves taking pictures. But I wasn't. Not because this isn't a great city or I wasn't happy being with my friends, I just wasn't inspired. I was taking photographs but I wasn't creating photography. … Continue reading The Need for Enjoyment

A Note of Thanks

I would like to publish a note of thanks to the security officers at Canary Wharf in London. Yesterday I visited London with a couple of friends as tourists to take pictures. One of our locations was Docklands with the intention of photographing some of the icon architecture including Canary Wharf. Waiting for our friend … Continue reading A Note of Thanks

I have no will power

A couple of weeks back I was out with my friend Steve (who is also an Olympus EM5 owner) and we were discussing just how good this camera is. At the time we agreed that we didn’t want for anything so would stop all this chasing around after new kit and just work with what … Continue reading I have no will power

RX100 V’s LX5 and LX7 – Part 2

Continued... Sensor quality – Here I would say I am interested in producing natural colours and smooth images (free from noise). The LX7 is better than the LX5 but neither can touch the Sony. The Sony has smooth images with very limited noise that doesn’t get exaggerated when the images are processed. The colours from … Continue reading RX100 V’s LX5 and LX7 – Part 2

RX100 V’s LX5 and LX7 – Part 1

It’s funny how the same questions keep coming up in photography and this is one of them. Which is the better camera the RX100 or the LX5/LX7? I see people arguing on forums, it comes up as a search term in the traffic stats for this sight and I even receive emails asking this. I … Continue reading RX100 V’s LX5 and LX7 – Part 1

Friday Image 006

In all my dashing around today I almost forgot to post my Friday image. I quite like the discipline of trying to create and post an image a week. I know others seem to manage one or more a day but I have too much else on to be able to make such a commitment. … Continue reading Friday Image 006
