Mails from our readers

1) toto22: “Not a rumor, unfortunately, :-)!
Maybe this will be interesting to someone visiting your site. A group of Russian enthusiasts made a trip which very close to the one made 100 years ago by Sergey Proskurin-Gorsky, the first Russian phorographer made the pics of the Russian countryside in color. There is a dedicated website now, which compares old and new pics of the same locations along the way. The address is as follows:
Cheers and good luck!!!

2) Melvin: “No rumor, but a blog post on micro and 4/3rds usage and the new sensor rumor.
If you think it is a nice read, a link in a little bit of everything post on 4/3rds romors is appreciated.
Thanks very much! enjoy reading your site, keep the good work up!

P.S.: Today I am out with my family all the day. Will not be able to answer your emails! Have a nice Sunday!

    I just HATE that DigitalRev guy! He is one UGLY SOB!

    • Ulli

      you hate him because you prefer goodlooking guys or because he is really into active photography?

      • fta

        I like him. DigitalRev is probably one of the most entertaining photography related channels on youtube.. Plus, it’s rare to see a Chinese man with a pure English accent over here, so that is amusing as well :) Funny

        • Chris

          I like him too- funniest camera reviewer I’ve found, shamelessly audacious and good eye for a photo. Keep posting the Digital Rev vids, Admin!

    • Mr. Reeee

      He’s entertaining, very funny AND doesn’t take himself too seriously.

      It’s refreshing to hear the opinion of someone who’s not trying to grind people’s faces into the breadth of his own knowledge or spewing a pile of arcane specs and test results that only the geekiest have much interest in.

        I love’em. And they have the right mix of entertainment + real photography + a bit of technicality. I’d rather watch a digitalrev chapter than any of those boring gearhead reviews out there.

    • Mr. Reeee

      Post a self-portrait so we can all compare, Tom.
      We’ll let you know who’s prettier…

    • me

      I like their reviews. I check them twice a week. Entertaining and somewhat educational.

  • > Today I am out with my family all the day.

    Admin has a family???

    That’s a shocking rumor, but IMO FT3 at best.


  • Ulli

    always inspiring to see :-)

  • Kevin

    took a look at the toto22 pics, and I must say that pics taken 100yrs ago were so much better than present. were the people shooting with P&S?

  • Reza

    Here’s how I do lomo no my E-P1:

    1. Use the 20mm + VF-1 (they surprisingly match perfectly).

    2. disable the dial button functions and set its rotating function for flash exposure compensation (in other words nothing meaningful).

    3. Put it in AF using all points, AWB, P mode, or any art mode.

    4. Turn off the LCD and the 4 second preview

    5. I have saved all these settings in “reset 2” (what a silly name).

    When I get out of lomo mode, I use “reset 1” to go back to my full manual controlled settings.

    It’s really hard to resist the urge to chimp, but with point 4 above it can be done!

  • KI

    AF is wrong…. the art filters are also ….. at least borderline wrong. Try a C-mount lens. It gives you the character you need for these kinds of shots.
    I love my Leica lens!
    I love my PRO-series Zuikos!
    I hate mediocre quality lenses!
    I LOVE my 25/1.4 C-mount lens!

  • Nathan

    Yay for hundreds of thousands of “artists” all doing exactly the same thing at the same times!

    Art fads are dumb. Deliberately crummy cameras are dumb because the “character” of the art comes from a thing, not a person.
    It’s as much of an art as decoupage or scrapbooking, I suppose.
