I take a photo with my Olympus E-P1, and it feels like it has depth, but doesn't feel as though I am actually in that moment again when I look at the photo later.
I take a photo with my Canon 5D and it feels like I am in that moment again when I look at the photo. Things like the subtle depth of field and dynamic range seem to be what I notice the most, but I'm not sure.
Is the difference here the lenses that I'm using along with the depth of field associated? A Canon 50mm f/1.8 and a Canon 85mm f/1.8 give extreme focal planes on the 5D, but then even my 70-210mm f/3.5-4.5 gives the same results. It seems as though the "presence" of the photo is what lures me so much, because it feel almost life-size with the 5D, even though there are the same amount of pixels populating the same area as the E-P1.
Is this making any sense? Is there any reason I feel this that is actually rational?

Getting rid of our classic E-P1.net name? Nah, we'd never do that. What we're going to do is give ourselves a sister name, something that can attract people here while not confusing them at the same time. So what name do you think is appropriate? Attracting all the mirrorless cameras to our space while not alienating our devoted Olympus and Panasonic fans.

She has been an integral part of the development of this forum, and she will now be your Community Manager.
What is a Community Manager?
She'll be your eyes and ears. If you want something done, she'll do it. If you even think something should be done, she'll anticipate it. She's here to be your friend, when the rest of the staff can't be, and to build the forum in ways that we all can't even imagine. From designing new changes to the site to bringing forth new ideas for the members to expand on, she will be here to do it.
Her dedication to Micro Four Thirds has given her the opportunity to grow and expand in knowledge of this format more than most of us, and she will be extremely helpful in every possible way.
So let's all take a moment and congratulate our new Community Manager!
Micro Four Thirds is dying. I'll say it here first. Therefore, this forum is also dying.
Many of us no longer use our Micro Four Thirds gear, myself included. After getting a Canon 5D I simply don't want to use my E-P1 any longer. I never thought I'd say this.
Other forums do what we do better than us, and I am not about to give up on this forum and I will also not let it wither down to nothingness.
So here's the question. What will make everyone stay here? What do we make of this place?
We all love sharing our photos, no matter what camera they're taken with, so why not venture into supporting that sort of format? Any other ideas?
Since the prefix system was introduced as a way to save board space and combine all of our lovely photo threads into a single place, we'd like some feedback on it. Please let us know in the voting thread whether you like them or not, and if you want another system put in place, please give us some ideas as to what we could do!

We are considering adding a category on the forum for the Fujifilm cameras! There are few Fuji dedicated forums out there, and the current X series is a great companion to Micro Four Thirds. We are hoping to eventually move into all mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, so this would be a great step. Feel free to vote and also let us know what you think in the thread!

Jonas has been an active member of E-P1.net for quite some time, and now will be offering his talents (and most likely a loud whip if you're bad!) to the forum. So be nice to him, seriously.
If you're interested in becoming part of the website team, please send me a private message!

Since we consolidated all of our photo boards into a single one, we've now added the option to give your topic a prefix. Since this is a brand new feature, we'd love to hear any feedback or more options you'd like included on the prefix options!
