  • Replied in Try stitching...
    Hi At the Grand Canyon, try shooting within the range 12-25mm and stitching the frames together.  Just using wide angles can get a lot of sky but stitching gives you the wide vistas. For example...
  • Hi All Charlotte's next door neighbor. Cheers Kevin  :-)

  • Hi All Perched on the letterbox : a perfect place to set up patrol for invaders... Cheers Kevin  ;-)

  • Replied in Brandy...
    Hi All I was cat-sitting for a friend recently and spent some time doing available-light shots of her 3 cats.  This is Brandy - lovely little cat. Cheers Kevin  :-)
  • Hi Yes, I can see a definite improvement there. I just upgraded my E-M1 to firmware 1.3.  I haven't tested it yet but I did notice that antishock=0 can only be selected in single frame mode.  If...

  • Replied in Carnivore!
    Hi All One from last year.  I learnt my lesson about not playing "get the finger" with Charlotte when she is in full "hunting mode".  Shot just prior to the attack - No photo of the...
  • Hi According to Olympus specs, the 12-40mm is 382g, lighter than the old 14-54mm (440g) I used on my old E-5.  That makes the E-M1 + 12-40mm ~880g, which is lighter than most competing APS-C...
  • Hi I would go with the 12-40 for general stuff and it is only a bit more $'s than the 25+12-50+14-42.  You are only loosing 1.3 stops to the 25mm so just push up the ISO for lower light.  The...
  • Hi All Charlotte looking a little bit evil in this close up... Cheers Kevin  :-D

  • Hi I'll be going for the Oly as I have an E-M1.  Funny how everyone comments on how big/heavy it is.  Remember that this is an 80-300 equivalent, is only going to be ~170mm long and probably weigh...
  • Hi We were at Big Bend in 2008 and it is ideal for panorama stitching.  Anything too wide will just get lots of sky.  Here is one of my attempts taken with the Olympus 11-22mm at 11mm - 4 image...
  • Hi Your shots brought back some memories of our trip there is 2008.  Pity you didn't get a chance to stay for sunset, as the Grand Canyon transforms then into something quite marvellous. Cheers...
  • Hi I would suggest that if you can't get excellent photos out of a micro 4/3 camera then moving to the Sony A7 won't help. It is likely your technique, or lack thereof, that is resulting in the...
