It doesn't happen too often but I had to visit Berlin on business and was cought out without a camera; my definition of a camera that is. All I had was my mbile phone and that is what I had to use. I didn't expect much but I was quite surprised by the results. Not all turned out well, especially those taken in low light and by that I mean evening or shopping malls. I'm only going to show a few here because I really didn't enjoy using it as a camera and I don't think I ever will. I really missed my EVF and holding the thing at arms length I found to be a real pain.

 

That said, I can see what poeple see in this type of photography. I mean, who today hasn't got a mobile phone with them. It's small, light and always with you. The camera in these little things get better and better and some have a real knack of taking excellent images with them. I'm just not one of those people.

 

Judge for youselves if these images make the grade. Personally I found them to be acceptable, especially since I had nothing else with me.

Panasonic GX7 - Tamron 14-150 f3.5-5.8 Di III C001

Panasonic GX7 - Tamron 14-150 f3.5-5.8 Di III C001

After trying out the Olympus 14-150 lens on the GX7 I decided the Tamron was next. I thought I had a problem with the Olympus lens after it's been used quite a bit in the last few years that I've had it. Now I'm not sure because I've been using it on the Olympus E-M5 body. The Tamron doesn't perform too well on that body either so I'm now thinking that the E-M5 isn't working the way it should be.

 

Having now tested both lenses on the excellent GX7 I really can't tell the difference between the images. So, if you're looking for an all-purpose lens for vacation time, you can purchase either of these lenses. The Tamron is a little thicker than the Olympus but has a good feel to it. Both don't have ILIS so I would think using these two lenses on Olympus bodies makes more sense. Having said that I had good results on the GX7 which has a form of IBIS but is not as good as in the Olympus bodies.

 

The following few posts will show the image quality from this lens.

Monitor Calibration

Monitor Calibration

When I have the chance I like to look at my photoblog images from different locations on different monitors, and I must admit, on some of these monitors my images look terrible; and I mean terrible!

 

It has shown me the importance of monitor calibration for photographers. At my workplace I have one workstation that is dedicated to my photography and the monitor I use is calibrated. Even if you aren’t a professional I still believe it’s important to calibrate your monitor as most enthusiasts like to shocase their images online in some way. A professional photographer should (and do) spend quite a bit of their hard earned cash on not only calibrating their monitor but also their printer because they want their images to look the same on their monitor and on the print; otherwise what’s the point, right?

 

Personally, I don’t print much, actually not at all. If I want a print made I upload the image (or images) online and get the print back within a couple of days. It just isn’t viable form e to keep a printer fort he amount of prints I make. At most I’ll print a couple dozen per year when I want to replace some prints hanging on my walls.

 

If you chose to calibrate your monitor it doesn’t have to cost the earth, just purchase a simple one to get the colours the way they should be. If you do print a lot then I would spend a bit more (could be about €/$400 or more) because it really is worth it.

 

I’m writing this post on another workstation and looking at my images makes me to NOT look at them. They really look awfull; colours are wrong and there’s a distinct lack of contrast to all oft hem but at the back of my mind I know that it’s the monitor. It’s a cheap (probably TN) nasty one and not at all meant for some PP work.

 

So, do yourself a favour, spend some money and watch your images come to life.
