  • Submitted a challenge entry Sjoa
    After heavy rain, the clouds are finally lifting over Sjoadalen (Sjoa valley) and the river Sjoa, that drains green glacial water from the high mountains in Jotunheimen NP, Norway. Although this waterfall is around 500m long, it still seems nameless, as it doesn't even have a name on any map!

  • Submitted a challenge entry Merging
    When not sitting in the red heather, the dark Arctic Skua has a well camouflaged look, merging into the surroundings. But as a light colored phase is also common, I guess camouflage is not their first priority. Nor their first need, taking their aggressive parasitic behavior into account.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Crooked gutter
    Yes, I believe that gutter could do w/ some maintenance... along with the rest for that matter ;)

  • Just for the record, I also have the 7-14/4.0 and 14-35/2.0 SHGs :).
  • Replied in Aurora attempt
    There were a couple of times this winter when the Aurora flashed all the way down to Italy and Greece (KP index 9)! That is rare, and when tit first happens we don't just see it on the northern ...
  • I just remembered that it had worked before, but then I obviously must have used m4/3 lenses, and I was not yet aware of it not working w/ native 4/3 ones...
  • Applies to both m4/3 and native 4/3 lenses.
  • Just found out that the magnified AF does work with m 4/3 lenses, but not with the native 4/3 lenses attached w/ the MMF-3 adapter! Might be an error, might be a constraint in the 4/3 lens or MMF-3 ...
  • PS. Another thing not working either, is the cogwheel C option "Rls Priority S" set to Off . When set to Off, releasing the shutter should not be possible before S-AF is acquired. But it does fire ...
  • Created discussions E-M1 fw v3.0 bug?
    I wonder if the E-M1 v3.0 firmware may have a bug... It's about AF in magnified view: I have set the menu cogwheel D option " LV Close Up Mode " to mode2 , which allows for AF during magnified ...
  • As a tele lens, a comparison to the 35-100/2.0 and 90-250/2.8 is most likely: Sharpness: For these, the PRO's sharpness is equal, IOW absolutely pin sharp, all across the frame, even w/ the MC-14 ...
  • Replied in Aurora attempt
    Thx Bill! :) In this case multicolored Aurora appeared. Such occurrence depends on the strength of the solar outburst, creating different colors in different heights in the atmosphere. The std. ...
  • Replied in level gauge
    There is another more convenient way to show the level gauge than via the Info button. If using that one, you will get the level in the screen/viewfinder, but at the cost of not having other ...
  • Hmm - it varied of course, but the bulk of the pics are within 0,7 - 1,5m I would think. Btw, is there focus distance data to be found in the EXIF somewhere? I cannot see it in Olympus Viewer 3.0 ...
  • Had my first shootout w/ the ZD 40-150/2.8 PRO the other day. Tried it out on Common frogs (Rana temporaria) in a nearby pond. Since they are quite shy for movements, I also added the MC-14 to the ...
  • Created discussions Aurora attempt
    From time to time the arctic light extends farther south, reaching also the lower regions of Norway. I have very little experience shooting it, but here are a few initial attempts, shot w/ the ...
  • Sadly the pics cannot be loaded/enlarged neither in Firefox nor in Safari.

  • Sadly the lava pics cannot be loaded/enlarged neither in Firefox nor in Safari.

  • You need a lens mounted to change the AF mode. I just detached the lens from my working E-M1 (w/ S-AF + MF enabled), and it immediately defaults to MF, wich cannot be changed. Once a lens is ...
