  • I rented the E-M10 recently and was very pleased.  I was just about to pull the trigger when I reflected how warm the camera got during use. I am concerned this could contribute excessive noise. I ...
  • Thanks it was lensrentals that I used.  I just tested the G1X MII, and has it turns out, I was not moved. I thought the EM10 was great.  I am going to take another look at the A6000 before making a ...
  • Macro, Thanks again for taking the time to make this post.  I just rented the MII and wasn't really compelled. It happens I also have the Hoya +4.  I just stacked it and was pleased with the ...
  • I hadn't check in for a while.  Nice shots.  Particularly the flies - I have had trouble with the G1X and close up shots and moving targets. Turns out I rented the OMD EM10 - I wouldn't mind ...
  • Dan, I hadn't checked the forum in a while.  I find your ruler shot very helpful.  Thanks.  It happens I started considering the OMD EM10 in order to use a real macro lens (and probably a wide ...
  • Well, I didn't realize one could rent over the internet via shipping service.  I rented the EM10 and quite enjoyed.  I have the G1X MII coming today.  Hopefully it clears things up for me.
  • Thank you everyone for taking the time to respond. I wish I could rent the camera - nothing available anywhere near my community. The camera and macro capabilities seem nice. Much thanks to Henry ...
  • Most of my photography revolves around hiking/camping when I frequently take shots on a tripod, or vacationing when I don't care to carry much.  I did buy a macro lens, and wide angle lens to use ...
  • Replied in some more
    Macro, I will post my observations when I get the camera.  It won't be until I can get an L-bracket from RRS. Also, I am most interested in knowing how the MI and MII compare with the 250D applied. ...

    Quite the typo....yes I meant helpful.  Thank you, I'm very appreciative.   I expect I will get the MII.  I'll wait for RRS to come out with an L-bracket. Thanks again, Mark
  • Replied in Thank you again
    GaryJP, Thanks again.  Your uncropped images of items I could reasonably duplicate were very unhelpful. The MII is able to get considerably closer pictures. Mark
  • Replied in Thank you
    Thank you for the thoughtful responses. Particularly thanks to GaryJP for the samples. I am going to see how a shot of keys with my MI and 250D filter compares. Hopefully this gives me something ...
  • Created discussions G1X MII close-up question
    I have the G1X MI and am fairly pleased with it.  Most of my pictures are while hiking, camping, or vacationing, and frequently involve a tripod.  The only fault in the camera that particularly ...
  • Dick, Thanks.  I guess if I give up on that feature, many cameras become a possibility.  I'll have to chew on it. Mark
  • Created discussions metering and focal point
    Is there any micro 4/3 camera that any metering mode can be tied to the focal point.  I often lock off on a tripod and focus and meter on the foreground with one exposure, and then a different ...
  • Alithenake, I was hoping if could advise if the spot meter can be linked to the focal point or if it is always located center frame (of course when selecting spot meter mode). Thanks for your time.
