camera221: When I considered to buy my first DSLR between Canon and Nikon brands I knew with the all the gear and gadgets to come over years I'd probably stick with the brand for the rest of my life. I had some old MF Nikkor lenses but surprisingly, with an adapter ring, they worked better in a Canon body than my friends Nikon DSLR. If I remember right, the Nikon refused to do most basic things when the communication with the lens was not available. However with Canon you could use the Av-program mode and the most other automatic modes as well. Canon won my money clearly. Now I am a pro photo- & videographer using 5Dm3 + L-series lenses. However I still use the 3rd party batteries from ebay. So far they haven't let me down ever :-)

It's just my personality: I don't like to change too often once I build confidence to my gear. You are welcome to disagree. However sticking to one brand doesn't mean you cannot use the others too.

On 2013 Waterproof Camera Roundup preview (123 comments in total)

I bought the Olympus TG-1 and was surprised of the two things not mentioned anywhere in the manual or reviews:

1.) When shooting video the sensor gets cropped reducing the wide angle effect. Yes, for taking photos it is 25mm (equiv.) but as soon as you hit the movie record button it changes to approx. 35mm. The widest angle you can get for video is about 35mm (equiv.) - not 25mm !!

2.) The camera does 60fps high speed shoot but it's only for 100 frames (about 1.5 s) at the time regardless of the memory card used.

Would be interesting to know if the same behaviours apply to TG-2 or not? These features are so prominent I just cannot understand why they are not pointed out in the specs - not even in the unbiased reviews?

camera221: LR and PS need to have a same version of ACR engine or else you get an error message between the two. I use the PS CS5 and the LR4.1 is the latest version I can use with it. There's no way to update PS CS5 to ACR7.4 as far as I know. I have two options: 1.) Update my PS (that is Production Premium suite) to CS6 or 2.) refrain from updating my LR any further. I choose the nro 2. Fortunately you can install different versions of LR side by side (say 4.1 and 4.4) but it does make the work a bit complicated.

The error is applicable only when using PS through LR: the "external editing" option. You don't normally edit photos in PS and Elements at the same time. You choose either one, don't you? I have purchased PS as part of the Production Premium package and to update that costs a lot. I wish I could update the latest ACR to my old CS5 but as far as I know, it is impossible.
