    Admin did you already post the EP-3 RAW comparison from DPreview? If so, sorry for reposting, couldn’t find it on 43rumors:

  • Can admin also suspend the account for weeks?

    Finally I decided I will to get Panasonic 20mm f1.7 first. Not only just price is cheaper, but also I need to rise the limit of aperture from f2.8 for low light shot on my available lens.

    Can anyone tell me why they put less artfilters in the Lite and Mini than the Pen? I mean what were they thinking?

    • Mr. Reeee

      Art filters? Isn’t that what Photoshop is for?
      Just make a camera that takes better photos. Let people diddle with images elsewhere.

      The EPL3 looks good. I love the tilt screen. I’m looking forward to trying one.

    I’ve read pablo’s insulting & uneducated comments. I hope he will learn how to respect.

    Now I’m looking forward on my next pen & 45 1.8. Hope it’ll be availble soon

    I would like to ask this fine lady to repeat what she just said without looking at the script. (referring to epl1 video)

    One thing I find disturbing, and it follows the industry is how in the EP3 review on TechRadar page 3 under “Image Quality” there are 3 parragraphs which all basically just talk of High ISO and noise. What the heck? Are there no other elements of image quality? On the next page with samples they go a little more into other aspects, but they fall right back to the ISO crap! It’s the MHz war that afflicted computers a few years ago all over again. Mpix war is slowing down so they gotta focus on some other parameter, and take it to a totally ridiculous level.
    Also, no real testing of the “fast AF” system.

  • For many regions, the entire rpm distributed free of charge STB The costs have
    been overwhelmed, and then implementation of the Reconstruction of two-way network, the funding is clearly beyond its capability.
    This is true simulation of the traditional transmission
    of radio and television programs, as it is only a station house music on your PC.
    This powerful and versatile solution is also available
    in three different versions, so you should have
    no trouble finding the perfect one for you.

  • Limousine is also a number one choice of the people
    who give importance to reasonable transportation.
    There are several types of self-employed positions; one such position is the limousine driver.
    Other than if you do higher two marriage limousines, then following
    the marriage everybody can pair off plus is driven to the park or wherever the
    pictures are leaving to be taken.
