You never know what you might discover when you share a hundred year old photo ... Community member Earl H. shared this photo in 2015 of Fae Smith taking the equivalent of a selfie over 100 years ago. Earl knew the name of the woman but had no other details.
The very next day another member recognized the photo and commented that she had a copy of the same photo and thatit was her mother-in-law. She was able to share that it was taken in late 1915 or early 1916 in Nebraska. She was "surprised and pleased to see that someone else values family photos" and Earl found out more about this 100 year old photo. See the original thread on AncientFaces
Panasonic GX85 Thoughts After Five Months
Much like the GX7, it’s a small and light system. This one kicks it up a notch from that camera with a thinner grip and less of a protrusion for the EVF (while sacrificing the tilting action from the GX7).
The shutter is much quitter. The GX7 was one of the loudest cameras I owned, which always felt odd since it focused so silently and it was so small.
It was cheap. I thought the GX7 was cheap when I got it, but this ended up being a little cheaper when I got it from eBay. The only “issue” is that I also got duplicates of the two lenses I picked up with the GX7.
The autofocus seems a bit better than the GX7, and it focuses surprisingly well in low-light.
The IBIS is pretty damn good. It seems comparable to my Ricoh GR and slightly better than my A7C, although it’s stabilizing a much smaller sensor than those two cameras.
While it’s better than the GX7 in a lot of ways, it’s also worse in a few. The shutter is quieter but it maxes out at 1/4000 compared to 1/8000. It also has a worse flash sync speed, which I guess isn’t a huge deal now since I have the GR with its leaf shutter in case I want to do some strobist stuff.
Battery life isn’t great. It takes the same batteries as the GX7 so I already had a few, but you definitely need three or four if you want a whole day of shooting. Looking at DPReview it’s actually rated for only 290 shots compared to the GX7’s 320.
The sensor is pretty much the same sans the AA filter. High ISO performance isn’t the best and it also can struggle with blown highlights.
It still has that issue that the GX7 has where dialing in focal lengths for IBIS doesn’t have enough options. I have a manual focus 25mm and for whatever reason that’s not an option to input on here.

okay so i’ve been getting a lot of dms asking me about what camera i use,, so i thought i’d just make a post about it!
i use the canon powershot A400 (the older models)
it’s not the fanciest or anything, but it certainly gets the job done! the one i have used to be my parents, but a used one on ebay averages around $10-15 (usd). i’d say if you are a beginner and know nothing about cameras this might be a good option, it’s easy to use and pretty long lasting if you take good care of it. i’m not rlly into photography or anything, i mostly just use it to get an older look and feel to my photos.
here are a few photos for closer inspection lol ^^
and if you like to read more on the technical side of things i’d recommend this review!
Nadie como tú, despierta...
mis más profundos instintos;
ni lo que late, en mi adentro,
ansiando, "tus mundos oblicuos".
... Y es que nadie, ha llegado
tan hondamente a mi alma,
con tan humilde y fiel legado
al centro mismo de mi karma.
Eres, majestuosidad y fuego,
esquina hacia lo desconocido,
alas robustas, donde yo vuelo...
el cielo que hay, - bajo tu vestido !
... Y ahora, - dime,
qué hago con todo esto ?;
si ya no puedo, - estar sin ti !;
y no concibo esta existencia...
"sin tus ardientes labios carmín".
