  • I agree with Geoff that a table top tripod is a good compromise for travel. When traveling with others there is usually no time to stop and set up a real tripod. It gives one the option of ...
  • Incremental updates such as 2.0 to 2.x generally retain one's preferred settings. A major update such as the recent 1.x to 2.x may necessitate re-entering them. Specifically, I have upgraded from ...
  • This could well be a primary source of your problems with blurry shots of the kids. Depth of field is not the issue with moving children indoors, shutter speed is. Those recommending a prime are ...
  • Apple provides raw file support at the operating system level. This is utilized by both Aperture and iPhoto and will be used by the new Photos application which is supposed to replace both in ...
  • I have been happy with the raw processing from Capture One Pro 8 but its digital assets management is still lacking compared to Aperture or Lightroom. Version 8 is a definite improvement over 7 ...
  • To my knowledge, it is not possible to turn off both LCD and EVF on the EM1 or EM5. One can turn off the back light saving some battery juice but not enough for me. Worse still, if one likes to ...
  • Replied in Probably not
    I took both my 35-100 f/2.8 and 75-300 on a trip to Alaska last year. We spent a week on an REI 72 passenger ship in Glacier Bay NP. Our best whale watching was a day we spent in Icy Strait where ...
  • Replied in One more thing
    My apologies if you already figured this out on your own. It took me a long time to get comfortable with defining and applying mysets. The problem lies with Olympus using the word "set" for both ...
  • I use mysets only accessed from the menu. There are many mode dial positions that I do not use but for me assigning mysetss to them was not useful. The biggest problem is that not only does the ...
  • First, diffraction is related to the aperture through which the photograph is taken.  It has nothing to do with the maximum aperture available in a given lens. Consequently, the amount of ...
  • To me the newer lens is clearly superior in sharpness and contrast shooting both at f/5.6.  Even more interesting would be to compare both wide open.  Can the pro lens surpass the bargain lens ...
  • Yes. The optical system of the EVF is set to infinity.  You can fine tune as needed with the diopter dial. I interpret your post differently than Elliott U. It appears you will receive a single ...
  • Replied in +1 on RRS plate
    I agree with your handling points. Also it provides an arca compatible mount in a smooth attractive format that looks like a part of the camera and does not hang up on the edge of a bag like a ...
  • Replied in EPM2
    You are forgiven. I frequently find myself in need of repentance for such a sin :-) Lee
  • Replied in EPM2
    This image is a raw processed in Capture One Pro 8.  I do not have an OOC jpeg to post. What additional information are you hoping to obtain from such an image?  I presume you already have the ...
  • Replied in EPM2
    The EPM2 16 MP sensor is substantially improved vs the 12 MP sensor in the EPM1.  IMO it would be worth the small additional investment as both are reasonably priced on the used market. My EPM2 ...
  • Replied in Not very close
    You make a reasonable point.  Sample variation or imperfect test methodology are among the reasons that one's individual experience may not agree with the results of a published test.  However, ...
  • Marc, Do you mind sharing a reference on which you base that opinion? At 35 mm, the pro-grade lens is f/2.8 while the kit lens is at f/5.5.  That seems more than "a bit" faster.  Even wide open the ...
  • Replied in Not very close
    The 14-45 appears to be a very good kit lens but it is not in the same league as the 12-35. Besides the obvious - wider and faster, the 12-35 is sharper.  Go to SLRGear and compare at any focal ...
  • Replied in Sunflowers
    Thanks. Lens was the good old mZD 9-18.
