Geoffrey Heard: "I live in a land of stunning scenery, volcanoes and all that stuff—Rabaul, New Guinea—and I have a couple of big scenic photo opportunities I am trying to get fit enough to take (walking up/climbing significant mountains is involved) and as a Micro 4/3 user, I can't help reflecting that a bigger sensor would be nice to have at the end of these exertions.
"Aargh, forget it! Just take the ($300) tripod and shoot panoramas! They will do the job! Someone mentioned the usefulness of the 4:3 format for verticals. Absolutely! After 50 years shooting 35mm, I use 3:2 mostly for horizontal and switch to 4:3 for verticals. It is good! And on my Panasonic cameras, I can have that change on a button."
