    Hmm, that's something I would not expect to see in a German pond! And let me say I like it that way! ;-) If this was my shot I think I would crop a bit, not to show all that junk and garbage ...
  • Actually it is relatively easy to understand the basics about guide numbers: The guide number of a flash tells you something about the power of a flash, about the light energy it can give you. The ...
  • Hmm, Steve, careful with that "guaranteed to be as described" as it simply can't be as described, unless Oly made some special lenses just for you!  :-D The 14-42 is not 3.5-4.5 but 3.5-5.6 What ...

    Michael, the E-5 can use SDXC cards. E-5 manual, page 12: RS
  • Yes, I need as bigger cabin! Or a garbage truck, parked in front of my cabin for at least two days! :-D René
  • Yes, that is what I would have done, if I had an auction going that ended during the hours when ebay was down. But -as said in another reply- I never sold anything via ebay; their down-time didn't ...

  • Created discussions Massive ebay problems today
    Well, at least over here. 6 p.m. now in Germany; since around lunchtime it was impossible to either connect to the site or to log-in. 10 minutes ago I could log-in for the first time today, site ...
