Henry Falkner's recent activity

  • With Morris dance performances where I am playing the accordion with the camera recording on top, I only stop and start the videos, to prevent the camera from timing out after 29 minutes ...
  • Your daughter's iPhone is a vital part for her decision making process - it takes the pic and sends it out in the next instant, and as soon as you reply, she can complete her decision. In ...
  • The head is out of proportion to the rest of her body. That the photo was published in the Telegraph does not exclude cut and paste jobs slipping through. I have been known to oil-paint  3/4 length ...
  • It is a cut and paste job. The head comes from another photograph. In the 60ies you had graphic artists to do this - but not all of them did life drawing to teach them about body proportions. I did. ...
  • The article does get a bit involved. Sticking with Olympus, the only model we had with a weather resistant claim was the Stylus 800 pocket zoom. When a slight drizzle started, I continued with the ...
  • Created discussion thread My SH-2 after 10 months
    The accountant decided to send me his questions by email, declaring them 'non-urgent'. This gave me a free day - but it is a grey day. However, a grey day is ideal for showing up any changes in ...
  • The recent 1" sensor cameras all have a large feature set, and they belong to the 'enthusiast compact' category. I have three Olympus SH series 1/2.3 inch sensor travel compacts, which have a ...
  • You may not miss much by switching. Most models of any manufacturer are pushed out of the door before the design has reached an acceptable degree of reliability. The buying public must share the ...
  • It does not help me! Henry
  • The camera is made to assume that, specifically in P mode, EV 0 will give you the correct exposure. But this assumes that the subject of interest is at middle brightness. If the main subject is ...
  • I forget now where I was doing my technical photography practical in the UK in 1966. But they had a high speed camera with the film running at constant speed. The exposure was through a slot ...
  • I have three travel zooms that cost me half the price of an enthusiast compact. The SH-50 now has a mod dial where half the functions went missing, but it was a grey import. The (Olympus) SH-1 and ...
  • 4k video at 15 fps on the SH-3 looks like a firmware update on the SH-2 only. I had VGA at 15 fps on the Stylus 800, in the last decade. This decade, 15 fps looks like retrograde engineering to ...
  • Cameras do not have a universally compatible filing systems. Each brand, and most models within that brand, will barf at files created in another camera. Picture and video compression most ...
  • Olympus SH-50 / SH-1 / SH-2 are pocket travel 24x zooms that do 20 seconds real time at 120 fps in HD720p. 20 seconds real time expands to 80 seconds at 30 fps projection. The SH-1 and SH-2 also ...
  • Glad you have done the basic investigation. You might walk into a shop and ask - 'Which 1" sensor camera has a socket for an external microphone NOW, and which one will have an external microphone ...
  • Thanks for looking. I am more into travel zooms, although I retain the SP-570UZ bridge camera from 2008. Henry
  • Before you throw any more money at anything - do the type of video you are intending to do with the G16, concentrating on content, fluent commentary, and EDITING!!! Stick that on YouTube, and ...
  • The worst camera I had was the Olympus C-2500L all-in-one 3x zoom SLR bought in 2000, but I also took the most memorable shots with it - http://www.pbase.com/hfalkner/henry32 . Sandra is very much ...
  • I have done cruise ship arrivals and departures in low light since the SZ30MR from 2011. The noise before sun rise was like ants crawling across the screen - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQph9zE7fr8
