#639. Monday Post (4 September 2017): Nikon’s mirrorless plan and (OT) a significant loss

  OK, so I haven’t ordered a D850, although for a few minutes, the pull was quite strong.   It seems as though the first batch of 850s hasn’t even been despatched yet and Nikon Rumors is already speculating on what Nikon’s mirrorless camera will bring. The mock ups are

#631. Monday Post (14 August 2017) – Lovers Gonna Love, Haters Gonna Hate, I’m Just Gonna Shake

Lovers Gonna Love, Haters Gonna Hate, I’m Just Gonna Shake, so sings (or close enough to the actual words) popular recording artist Taylor Swift in a song that I’m really quite familiar with due it being a daily soundtrack to our lives, as my 4 year old daughter now knows how to

# 619 Monday-Post-gone-over-to-Tuesday (17-18 July 2017) Is it Likeable, or Leicable.

Readers of DearSusan know it, not one of our gang is actually fond of Leica. Well that’s not true. We’re all rather fond of Leica actually, but not of Leica cameras. All of us love Leica glass, but the cameras, well… We’d all love for Leica to do well and

#551. The Monday Post (23 Jan 2017)

In a recent e-mail from a friend, he revealed that he has a Tesla on order. It’s a year or so off yet, as the company hadn’t planned such a runaway success; orders (and cash deposits) streaming in from every point of the compass and in response, finished cars oozing

#546. The Monday Post (9 January 2017)

  2017 is barely underway and my curmudgeon-o-meter is already bashing against the stop.   How would you react to these earth shattering announcements?   Leica Rumors (Web site) is so plumb out of news that it’s just announced the competition winners for an M3-shaped tin container?   I suppose

  Pascal’s last Monday Post might have been an easy to skip piece for many of you. After all, the Interwebs delivers incredible stuff – right to your desktop.   Indeed it does. It also does some bad things, too.           Here’s one; it’s my story,

#540. Your experience may vary

  Much of DS’ content this past year has been gear-related; lens comparisons, Zeiss’ Otii, Sony cameras v everything else, different software comparisons and despite our best intentions and efforts, little of it really conclusive. Personal preference remains the real test.         Trawling my usual list of

#534. The Monday Post (5 December 2016)

Presets are for losers. Right? When you’re too lazy or not inspired enough to figure out your own post-processing like a man, you click a magic button and let the machine inject talent into your pathetic work. Probably to share with your pathetic friends on a pathetic social network. When

#532. The Monday Post (28 November 2017)

The first of a (planned to be) regular Monday post, detailing the recent weekend’s photographic activities of one, or all of us. As it was my idea, I get to go first, so this is a solo effort and briefly discusses a couple of the new photo editors.   We’d

#513. Fuji’s GFX – medium format for a ready audience?

  The wet string that connects DearSusan’s international HQ to the world has been steaming again with a flurry of e-mails this week, following Fuji’s announcement of the GFX medium format system last Monday.   Here we sit; four photographers, four locations, four totally different attitudes, wants and ideas, trying
