  • Replied in Good dog(s)!
    Regardless of camera used. Having owned one for >1.5 years, I can say the E-M5 is indeed a mighty capable machine. Not that there's anything wrong with the Sony.... Jules.
  • I agree, in the world of mirrorless, having one or more spare batteries along is nearly essential. But how long the battery will power the camera or how many shots per full battery one will get is ...
  • ...at least as I've observed. This feature of the E-M1 (and E-P5?) was mentioned a few weeks ago in another thread re: SShock.  AFAICT, setting Release Lag to "Short" has been effective. On the ...
  • I concur with all the above opinions, the 12-40mm is very solidly built, AF is rapid, and sharpness is very good. Compared to primes like the 12, 17, 20, 25, 45mm, it's a tradeoff between the ...
  • You might try Camera World.  They used to be owned by Ritz, but have been owned by an independent investment group who continue to operate Camera World as a retail store and also as on-line ...
  • Replied in Tripod
    Of course, you did it the old-fashioned way, or with IBIS, is it the new -fashioned way? I do like the image's subtlety, and your sense of humor. Thanks, Jules.
  • Replied in Tripod
    Like peas in a ... Did you use a three-legged pod? Jules.
  • I can't give you a direct answer to your question--I only have the 12-40mm.  As you point out there are many opinions floating around re: the qualities of the two lenses. The 12-35mm is a little ...
  • Quite humorous title of OP. The term "unobtanium" goes back a long way, and kind of legendary in the recent history of camera-making. When I saw the "word" in the title it reminded me of this ...
  • Don't know about the whole R-Strap setup, but I'm guessing that a tripod mount is only useful, well, with a tripod.  Indeed, attaching the strap directly to the camera is quite logical. I say this ...
  • A couple of free/open-source programs with good reputations, and available for the Mac are RawTherapee and Darktable. I've used both converters (under Linux) and both work well. Happily there are ...
  • Not exactly the same story, but I did get the E-M1 and 12-40mm from local shops.  The E-M1 body was pretty much a walk-in and luck-out situation.  The 12-40mm I was on a waiting list for about a ...
  • Good question.  I had similar thoughts and "tested" the modification for effects on the interior of the bag. On my bag the location of the magnets (on the pockets at the front) puts them at least a ...
  • I noticed this too.  WiFi limitations aside (I assume the app works similarly under iOS and Android), the WiFi screen on the camera monitor is not only ugly, it's also something of a potential ...
  • What specific changes are you looking for?  I have a pretty good idea about what I'd suggest, but I don't want to say too much before finding out what you have in mind. Jules.
  • What mode is set (like "P", "A", etc)?  If it's on "iAuto" I think it does what you describe.  Of course it could be due to another option is set in a way you didn't intend. The menu is ...
  • I've noticed that too--setting S-AF Release Priority to "off" doesn't seem to make a difference.  I expected the shutter wouldn't fire if focus was not achieved, but it does. Maybe there's ...
  • I can chime in here to say I've heard the IBIS become louder when shutter "half-pressed".  It was more noticeable on the E-M5 vs. E-M1.  Never regarded it as a problem. I haven't experienced any ...
  • Oh, I don't know, wouldn't call it "stupid".  When something actually works and we enjoy using it, don't see what could be wrong with that... Jules.
  • Man, that looks like it's from a military arsenal, what caliber shell does it hurl? :-) But seriously, I've been talking about comparing the 12-40mm with my (sort of similar) 14-54mm FT lens. The ...
