  • Wishing Shirley all the best and hoping she has a full and speedy recovery.
  • Replied in or....
    You state this as if it is a fact.  Olympus in interviews has stated that they do not plan to use the PDAF sensor in lower models than the E-M1 and they do consider the E-M5 as a lesser model than ...
  • Since there are no electrical contacts in that adaptor you will not be able to adjust aperture and other than the SWD lenses and the Sigma FT lenses, you will not be able to focus other than by ...
  • In that case it would require sending the camera and the Bigma to Sigma to have the lens calibrated to work with the camera.  That was the correction method used before the cameras with lens micro ...
  • I just checked on my 14-45mm lens and the serial number is on a sticker mounted in the slot where your serial number is missing from.  Since it is a sticker, it could have been easily removed. As ...
  • Replied in Battery power
    Perhaps we are reading it differently but I got the impression that he is switching off the LCD and shooting with the EVF. I saw that also but it really doesn't matter which one uses more power if ...

    You may want to try what the poster suggests in the following post to see if it does actually extend the battery life as claimed. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52613468
  • Compensation for chromatic aberration is supported when using the E-M1 and Panasonic’s LUMIX G VARIO 14-140mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH./POWER O.I.S. (H-FS14140) together. Stabilization of shooting in the ...
  • I find the images from the E-5 to be sharper to start with and need much less final sharpening than the E-30. I love the fact that the E-5 doesn't have a mode dial.  It makes all of the MY Modes ...
  • Due to the age of the post the photos are no longer available. http://www.fourthirdsphoto.com/keepers/30652-hld-3-mod-e-330-a.html Scroll down to find the image of an adapted HLD-3. http://www.cybe ...
  • What was more common was the adaptation of the E-300 battery holder grip to fit the E-330.  It took a slight relocation of the attachment bolt on the battery holder grip.  I personally have an ...
  • The SWD lenses have a mechanical focus link and can be manually adjusted at any time including with the camera being turned off.  The 90-250mm f/2.8, 150mm f/2.0 and 50mm f/2.0 and all the other ...
  • Replied in Let's get real
    Obviously you don't shoot wildlife or you would realize that the sound is very relevant to the final image.  The fact that it is causing additional wear and tear on the aperture blades is also a ...
  • Olympus never claimed that the E-M1 is an upgrade to the E-5, they merely stated that it is the successor to the E-5.  They also did this with the Pen line of micro FT when they did not claim that ...
  • It does make a difference in which order the extenders and the ECs are placed.  My preference was to first place the extender on the camera and then the teleconverter and lastly the lens.  In my ...
  • Good question for which I don not have the answer.
  • The Canon MP-E 65 is a manual focus only lens that can be adapted to m43 by the use of an adaptor such as the Kipon Canon EF to MFT+E-Mount adaptor with internal aperture.
  • In my opinion ExifTool when used with ExifToolGUI is an excellent Exif editor and both are free. ExifTool by Phil Harvey http://owl.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/ ExifToolGUI http://u88.n24.queensu ...
  • Your EPM-1 is a Micro Four Thirds camera.  The Micro Four Thirds Talk Forum is at http://www.dpreview.com/forums/1021 You might have better luck posting in the Beginner's Question Forum. http://www ...
