  • Replied in EX-100f
    Just had a look at the specs. Doesn't look like they've improved the slo mo. In fact from what I can see I'm thinking they haven't even updated any hardware at all, but just updated a bit of the ...
  • Replied in EX-100f
    I guess it's the same cam just faster? If that means they could do HS120 movie mode @ 720p reso, I might be interested...
  • Hm not sure I want to risk spending $250 on that...pretty tempting though...maybe it'll go on my Christmas list...
  • One thing that's a little concerning is that apparently Olympus did a firmware update when they released these adapters. Perhaps there's some image compensation that needs to happen in camera ...
  • I use the android app mainly for transferring files from the camera to the dropbox (pc). That works well. I've only used it a few times for remote control - seems to work well too - but I was ...
  • Hi - does anyone know if the Olympus CLA-14 Wide Conversion lens adapter and WCON-08X Wide Conversion lens fit on the EX100 (they fit the Olympus Stylus 1 and 1s)?
  • Hi Gary, Thanks heaps for your tips! I will use these methods as best I can. Another work-around is to go WAY to one side and then work your way to the correct exposure... ...but when you start ...
  • Created discussions EX100 - One small gripe...
    I love the Ex100 - it's probably obvious from my posts. But if Casio is reading this - perhaps consider giving an indication of whether the shot is under or over exposed when using the EX Finder ...
  • *ceases (no edit on mobile)
  • Nice shot! Never seizes to amaze me what you can do these days with a handheld camera - Galileo would have been blown away!
  • Well I do think I have a little bit of a clue - and yet amazingly I do use the in-camera wide angle feature - even though I've stitched many an image together on a PC. Why would I do such a thing?  ...
  • So these 2 planets are pretty well lined up today, so thought I'd have a stab at making a composite image. So this image (100% crop from jpgs) is actually 3 separate images at different exposures ...
  • Replied in Not quite 2002
    We went to the one in Ceduna (saw it at Lake Everard actually - in the outback) - and then went again to the one in Cairns in 2012.  The first one was pre-digital, and the second post.  I got ...
  • Hi Erik - wouldn't happen to have been for the solar eclipse in 2002 was it?
  • Well I agree it is fiddly to get into the mode - but then it's really not made for capturing "moments" - I only ever use it on subjects that don't move, and I have all the time in the world to set ...
  • Hi Cyril, Sorry to hear you haven't had much luck with that feature.  I must admit I mainly use the 21mm setting - and I don't think I've had that fail on me once.  The 17mm setting is a bit more ...
  • Wow 90% at 24mm - yep in that case probably the ZR3500 might be better for you...
  • Well... Actually both cameras go to 300mm zoom.  So the main difference is the wide angle.  So for the extra 3mm at the wide end, you're giving up a seriously bright lens across the whole range. So ...
  • Hi Cyril, The star trails are not parallel - but rather they form concentric circles around the poles. This shot was taken in Australia, facing roughly east, so the star trail circle radii get ...
  • Created discussions Star trails EX100 - sorted.
    Figured out how to get rid of those awful gaps in the startrails - the answer of course is software!  Startracer does the job beautifully.  Still need to experiment with this technique, but here's ...
