  • I too am in my 50's and I'm getting to that age where my sight is becoming long sighted - but too vain to get reading glasses! :D Once the dioptre adjustment is adjusted on the EVF, I can see the ...
  • Replied in ES-1
    Thanks Guy.  That's really, really helpful.  It's always good to know a tried and tested work flow as a starting point rather than having to re-invent the wheel! Good point about turning off the ...
  • Hi Guy, Any idea if the ES-1 would still need tubes etc when used with the 4/3 35mm F3.5 macro?  I already have the lens and an m4/3 adapter so the ES-1 looks tempting if it would give 100% of the ...
  • Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I have the Oly 4/3 35mm macro lens which I use on my Panny G5.  The implication from Guy's comment above is that the Nikon ES-1 can be adjusted to cover the ...
  • Hi Mike, Thanks for posting the pictures.  Crete, as ever, looks beautiful - but it makes my next holiday there in the spring seem too far away.  Especially as London is currently cold and rainy!
  • The lens seems to be getting good reviews.  There are plenty of m4/3 owners who want the smallest possible lens on the smaller bodies so I would be surprised if it didn't sell for a reasonable amount.
  • I also have the 45-200 but often always found that slightly soft (or perhaps poorly focussed) at the 200mm end.  Although I do sometimes miss the extra reach, the 45-150 is so much more portable. I ...
  • I have the 45-150 and use it with my G5. I haven't noticed any double image type effects that might indicate shutter shock.  But, to be honest, when I am shooting at the 150mm end I tend to keep ...
  • Hi Ken, It's good to hear that you are still enjoying your photography.  If you are worried about the Stylus 1 screen getting scratched, buy a screen protector.  They are fairly cheap and will ...
  • I'm a bit late to this thread but I just had to say how much I liked the images as well. Isn't it refreshing - a constructive and informative post from someone who actually has the camera and ...
  • Or, after getting a good lock with AF, then switch to MF and leave focus untouched.  For landscapes and cloud formations, that should be fine.
  • I've just checked the minimum requirements for Pro and it is Windows 7 64 bit.  Until I upgrade from my humble 32 bit version, I won't be able to try.
  • Hi Leon, Thanks for the suggestions. The Lite version appears to be free. Unfortunately, it needs Windows 7 64 and I'm still on the 32 bit versions. :-(   But I'll keep it in mind for when I ...
  • Thanks for your comments and advice everyone. I guess I have been spoiled: I shoot RAW when I take stills and there is plenty of software that does a good job of reconstructing blown highlights. ...
  • Hi, I'm mainly a stills shooter so very much a noob when it comes to shooting video on my Panasonic G5. This is my problem. I shot a small (5 minute) dance performance last weekend, using AVCHD ...
