Congratulations for the winners! Well worthy photos as winners.
@ysal Scanned would be allright. Just remember to input the setting data.
First time I host "various aspect ratio challenge", there were a lot of non compliance photos, but then after 2nd and 3rd challenge, the non compliance photos were reduced greatly. I am surprised that this time around there are still a lot of entrants not complying with 1:1 aspect ratio.
I will try to be even more clear in the next description of this series.
Really really sorry I was unaware of the complaints and the huge numbers of the complaints regarding the aspect ratio.
Almost 3 weeks ago my briefcase was stolen, containing my laptop, Ipad and mobile phone. I still dont have the replacement for my laptop and ipad yet. And even though I can still access dpreview through my mobile phone, I didn't see the incoming complaints nor the direct message sent to me.
This "various aspect challenge" has been here for a while and the meaning is always "aspect ratio", so 1:1 aspect ratio mmeans SQUARE FORMAT.
Apologies for the cunfusion I left here, especially to those who put their effort and time to put complain and message here.
You are welcome Joe. I 'd be glad if you participate in both 16:9 and 9:16 Nature Landscape challenge.
To all who have posted 9:16 (vertical) landscapes, really sorry I am disqualifying you this time, but please have them ready in the next challenge. I WILL specifically have a challenge with 9:16 (vertical format) landscape challenge.
Congarts to all the winners, well deserved! And thank you for all participants.
Wow. Congrats for the win. Well deserved.
Friends, please read the rule that you should use 1:1 aspect ratio. I have disqualified a lot of beautoful images. Its a pity those are not usong 1:1 aspect ratio.
The entries are beautiful!
Btw, please read the theme, it should be nature landscape and the aspect ratio should be 1:1. I disqualified several photos that are not compliance to the aspect ratio and some are 1:1 but not nature landscape.
Cropping in post processing is allowed.
Congrats for your win. Don't stop bringing your camera everywhere :-).
I wonder why people who had it more than people who has it.
Congratulations for Gutkin and your photo Todi Light, winning the "Challenge of challenges" votes. I would also like to congratulate all phographers that the work was chosen by the editors in this 25 entries.
Thank you also for those who voted for my shot.
Seeing the cameras that are used to take the photos here, ranging from HTC (smartphone, right?), compact cameras, m43 & 43 cameras, APSC and FF cameras, confirms several things. The best camera is the camera with you. And, a great photographer could produce great photographs out of it regardless what gear they use.
That thing is waay too huge for m43 system! (I mean the 400mm lens)
Timmbits: I can't help but wonder if the MFT consortium (Panasonic, Olympus) will be offering a larger sensor at these prices! (aps or larger)
No they won't. Its at this price because of many other features. I also don't want any camera at this price that only has large sensors but without the features that E-M1 has.
PGen: Can I have some advice/feedback on the quality/usefulness of electronic viewfinders? My reference is the optical viewfinder in a pre-digital SLR, which I liked very much.
The advantage in DSLR compared to film in my opinion, is the ability to see the result instantly AFTER we shoot. Well, using EVF the most useful benefit is, we can preview the result BEFORE we shoot. So, the most important benefits for photographers would be: More precise shooting. We set the WB right, exposure right, etc from the very beginning. Shoot more, less chimping.
seri_art: It's the same size as my XSi and 10% heavier. What did it do with the should-have size advantage of the 4/3 sensor and lack of a mirror?
Umh... comparing with XSi, you should compare it with E-PM2, which I think would be the same class and market. Not to E-M1. Too many features that XSi dont have.
Ty Slothrop: Oly mentions uploading to a PC in their specs for the EM-1. Is there anything in the firmware/hardware/flatware that precludes interfacing with a Mac, or requires something that I'm overlooking? (It shouldn't matter but for complete disclosure I'm using Aperture for PP.)2. I'm not clear if a tethered off-camera flash is fully auto TTL?3. Is it necessary that the cable be a dedicated Oly product to an Oly flash unit?If my questions reflect some confusion and don't make sense please feel free to reframe them as needed.Many thanks, Ty
Yes, off camera flash is fully auto TTL.
concert photographer: Hi, when I have made a picture with the M1, I always have to wait quite a long time to take the next. I use new very fast writing chips (90MBS/sec), but have to wait 2 sec until te camera is ready for the next picture.Why? the last OMD was quicker.second question: when I use an adapted telephoto lens (nikon IF-ED 4,5/300 or Leica Telyt 6,8/400) and use the magnification for focusing accuracy, I can't stabilize the viewfinder image, perhps I overlooked the user's manual? Is it possible to activate the IBIS with adapted lenses with minimum fuss? The viewfinder is not really usable without a stabilization because the image is much too unsteady.With panasonic one have only to half-press the button of the shutter and the viewfinder is stable.Marc
Number one, make sure you turn off the "rec view". Also Noise reduction should be off.
As fore the IS, you go to SCP, select IS, press OK, then press info. Adjust the focal length to the closest focal length of the lens you are using.
