  • Hi, As I mentioned, don't sweat it on the contact, as the Olympus grip also makes a dent on them. So, is no biggie. Although, the flimsy door is indeed an issue. More than once I've found myself ...
  • Agree. He had a capability of finding simplicity in composition, and unclutter the clutteredness in a way many can't. He is the one who taught me that the 70-200mm focal length was indeed very ...
  • Created discussion thread Sad day for Photography
    Michael Reichmann passed away at 71 michael-reichmann-founder-of-luminous-landscape-dies-aged-71 I remember I was just coming out of film, and considering my first digital camera purchase. I didn't ...
  • This is my current bag of choice. We photographers have, what I call, season bags. Or bags that work for us for a time, and then our needs change, and we go looking for another bag. We might come ...
  • I agree that RAID 1 would be better, and no performance impact due to parity checking. Well, you are right. I'm trusting one SD card at a time. Although I have 5 8GB cards, that I swap every ...
  • Created photo thread Some studio portraits
    Last Saturday, I teached a basic Photography workshop at work. It was free for everyone, but with limited slots. I got a few people, and being my first time, I think I did pretty good. I needed ...
  • Replied in What about RAID?
    I would never trust one single card with all my photos. Although, a RAID array configuration using 3 micro SD cards sound compelling. It might increase write speed a bit, and if one fails, you can ...
  • Oh, wasn't aware of that. And is good idea to take that into account, and maybe find an alternative way of figuring out full and empties. Simply labeling them with a marker comes to mind. Do you do ...
  • They don't fall out. They are held pretty tight on the rubberized holders. Actually you need to pry them off with a fingernail. Well, that's kind of an organizational issue.
  • I think you meant Pentax lenses without built in AF motors, like the older models, and the answer is no. No m43 lens makes noise. Maybe the 20mm might make some slight noise, although you'll have ...
  • In my experience with 3rd parties, I've had Wasabis and Watsons, which are the ones I currently use, and have given me excellent performance, no 3rd party battery charges well on Olympus chargers. ...
  • Replied in Gorgeous
    Love the soft light, and how the label jumps out of the screen. Great capture.
  • 1.5/2 = 0.75 15 x 0.75 = 11.25mm (really negligibly wider than 12mm) f/6.7 x 0.75 = f/5 And ISO 6400 x 0.75 x 0.75 = 3600 All in all, about a third or a fourth of a stop difference with 1.6x So, ...
  • You are right. That's why I said to my knowledge ;) So, is the E-P5 the first one who got the switch, then the E-M1 and finally the E-M5 Mark II. I thought the E-M5 Mark I also got it, but did not.
  • This is natural. People tend to come to the forum with a problem, and once is fixed, they go away and return when another problem arises. Is natural for people to get hooked with new gear ...
  • I think you mean that the EVF displaying menu options and changing settings while looking through it. I agree, but the ability of changing the functionality of both control dials with the flip of ...
  • I've been saying this for ages. Whenever someone starts a debate between formats, or gets entangled in discussions among different sensor sizes. There is always a compromise. In the case of low ...
  • Oh, I can see that. Great models, BTW. Just don't get too close. I've read of a photographer getting attacked by one of this fellas. It got scary. Well, I've found that WB on night scenes with ...
  • The E-M1 have the best, in my opinion, a great control design. Without taking my eye out of the viewfinder, which is huge, I can dial shutter speed and aperture, or any combination of them plus ...
  • Well, as mentioned, Olympus Viewer is the way to go, if you want a fast and exact replica of the in-camera effect in post. Although, they all tend to be fairly easy to replicate. I'd suggest you ...
