It's a pretty famous tree, and the lake goes up and down, fed by snow melt. The tree is a willow, so very water tolerant.

I agree the photo is nicely done.

Lovely shots of an amazing place.
Edit: I've just remembered what one of my university friends told me about research diving here (this is Milford sound in NZ). There is an inversion layer a few meters down that causes much less light to pervade below. Consequently, black coral is found there much shallower than would be elsewhere located. It's apparently quite the temperature change, too.

Interesting and am likewise around Pentax. I have been very close to pulling the trigger on a G9 about three times (but have just upgraded my computer instead). At $1600 Canadian ($700 off to be competitive with Fuji, etc.). a solid, lighter body with good video features (as well as pixel shift for resolution, body stabilization, etc.).
That being said, the other option is to get a one inch sensor cam. I haven't posted much yet from Japan, but ended up taking a ZS200 (HX1, whatever) and my Ricoh GR to Japan hiking and was very happy with the results/weight. At least on par with my old K7 in terms of stills quality.

There's some good choices out there for this. Price-wise the Panasonic GX85 and Canon M50/100 are right there for system cams, or the "1 inch" crowd are also quite good if you can get a plug in mic.

Thanks! #2 works and makes a lot of sense. #1 started the AF. There's probably another setting for that.

Hi, there. Was playing with the GM5 today; if you set a single focus point and make the point as small as possible, it will then magnify the selected area under the point when you turn the lens focus ring.

My problem is that I haven't figured out how to stop the magnification to recompose once focused the way I want.

Bundle either SILKYPIX Developer 8 SE/9, or (preferably) Capture One Express

Well, given that Capture One Express is now available for Fujifilm GFX bodies, and Pentax medium format is pending update, maybe the time is right again?
Your experience is disappointing re: metadata. I did something similar with DXO about Fujifilm about the lack of support - no dice.

---------- Post added 07-31-2019 at 10:03 PM ----------



That's the thing - both Fujifilm and Panasonic use(d in the case of Fujifilm) Silkypix (not the latest, full version), but not the DCU skin. It makes it easy to use and the same across-platform.

Really enjoying the native SP experience on Panasonic, and more especially the Capture One experience on Fujifilm.

The performance is good (much better than a couple of generations ago on DCU when I last used it for Pentax), and Capture One Express really takes it up a level.

The cross-platform potential for Capture One (and the potential lack of a subscription) are also massive draws and add to the package value.

Exactly right. :lol::cool:
I originally bought (back) into micro 4/3 for a compact, travel sized body with the capability of changing small lenses. All of which can fit into my business backpack. Now, to actually post something!

The 12-32 is an annoyingly useful lens. And the GX80 has IBIS (my GM5 does not). Then there is the panny 20mm, and then the Oly 45mm, oh and the tiny 35-100. For fun, add the 12-60mm kit. And suddenly you have another system, insanely capable video, and reasonably good stills. Another system..... :eek:. But at least it's small and fits into a tiny bag.

And then I thought, haha! maybe I should get a zs200 for backcounty (and carry my GR alongside) and sell all of this. The trouble is, micro 4/3 is fun. So I haven't. ;)

All right, I'm going to geek out here:
- The MF 135 (4th photo) was our family farm tractor until we got a ~1/2 ton round baler, then the front axles broke from moving the bales with a front-end loader. (We got a bigger fiat after that).
- The last photo (28hp MF) was what I learned to drive first!

Edit: Ironically I now live about an hour where many of these were likely made (Brantford, ON).
