    Fujifilm cameras and sharpness

    I’ve now owned the Xpro2 and x100f and cant get the same amount of detail and sharpness out of those like I can with my M43 gear. Is this an Xtrans sensor issue or the camera’s film simulation software making things soft?

    Feather MR3 cartridge razor (w/ 3 blade)

    Just got done with two shaves using the Feather MR3 razor. One shave with a Palmolive shave stick and the other with Barbasol. I can't say enough good things about this razor. Both shaves were very comfortable, zero iritation. The beard reduction was so good after the first pass, it rivaled...

    Lee's Razors problem?

    Has anyone else had issues with shopping there? This is my third time making an online purchase with an issue. It's either an item is out, product delivery delay or lack of response to email. This time, its the two latter.

    RAW vs. Jpeg

    I've always shot JPEG and i'm looking for a more serious camera. One of them is the Oly EP5 but was told that it does not have in-camera RAW processing.

    NEX-7 vs. Ep-5 dials

    I've been able to test drive the Sony NEX-7 and love how easy it is to manipulate the two "Tri-navi" dials on the back without shaking the camera on a tripod. I was wonder what the dials were like on the Olympus Pen EP-5. Are they more 'clicky' than that? I just played around with the Pana...

    Olympus Pen EP-5 Users

    I have read that the EP-5 has an HDR bracketing mode. Can you explain the difference between that and regular AE Bracketing? also, do you find that the 4/3 sensor can make great prints up to 12x18?

    Prime/Fixed lens users only?

    Does anyone here shoot primarily with a fixed lens/prime lens only camera (ie. X100s, Sony FF 35mm cybershot)? just curious if people have found it limiting or has it set them free from lugging around a zoom lens. I'm thinking of getting an X-series camera and keeping a 23mm lens (35mm...

    Fuji X100/X100s firmware update question

    Does anyone know if they're updating the auto exposure bracketing allow one to bracket more than 1 EV? I know this has been a gripe for a lot of people who use it for HDR. Seems like it would be a simple update, but curious why Fuji hasn't done it yet.

    Adorama used dept.

    Has anyone sold any camera gear to Adorama before? I kinda question their 70% value claim. They're supposed to give you 70% of the value of the camera, but I got offers that I thought were kinda low on some 35mm Nikons.
