  • The advantage of DFS (dark frame subtraction) in post is you reduce your "dead time" and increase your number of potential exposures while in the field. This isn't a big deal if you're working with...
  • I haven't shot the northern lights before, but I sure hope I get the opportunity at some point. Alaska is a beautiful place, you're going to love the "last frontier." I have used the D700 in two...

  • I'm a strong believer in remote flash photographer and myself use Pocket Wizards. They are more expensive but they just work, they never fail, and they never miss fire, which are three very...
  • It's nice to see the 150/2 and 35-100/2 hold their value, those prices are only a few dollars shy of what they demanded 3 years ago. These two lenses were my favorite on 4/3, particularly the...
  • For my typical outdoor on site shoots, which last anywhere from 60-90 minutes including setup, takedown, and a quick scout, I deliver between 40 and 60 images to the client. I'm happy if 4 or 5...
  • Hi khaw, Thanks for asking, the E-3 is doing well, though I've retired it to use only with my Ikelite housing these days.  In the last two years I've shot the E-3 exclusively with a 14-54mm, DS-125...
  • Are these two photos representative of the set you received? Did you review the photographer's past wedding coverage work? Cheers, --Timhttp://www.developemotion.com'I haven't been everywhere, but...
  • The 35-100/2 is excellent glass, even as compared with today's newer competitors. Sharpness is top notch from f/2, contrast is good, CA/PF is low. It's a great design. The 35-100/2 had the original...
  • Thanks Roel for a nice read, and very glad you were able to retrieve your photos. On my very first long distance journey with the E-1 (7 weeks abroad), I learned very quickly to backup daily (or...
  • Roel, I still have my 14-54mm, if you don't foresee your 12-60mm being fixed in a timely fashion, I can send you my 14-54mm, which I don't foresee myself needing for at least a month or two. Shoot...
  • For the majority of HG lenses, stopping down 1 stop from wide open yields an aperture that produces the sharpest images. For some lenses, like the 12-60mm, it is sharpest wide open at the wide to...
  • Wow thanks for the great, detailed reply Abraham.  I'm getting super excited about this trip just listening to yours!  The brief research I've done brought up Bali and specifically Ubud as top...
  • Hi All, Looking for recommendations between the following two countries to visit during late December and early January:  Malaysia or Indonesia.  The top priorities would be photography, food, and...
  • Hey Dave - I'm sure you've considered this, but do you go through batteries faster than CF cards at this point?  I haven't shot as much UW as you have, but I did use the LV quite a bit on my E-3...
  • Jim joined and has been contributing to the Oly DSLR (and Compact) forum for as long as I can remember.  It's really unfortunate how you conclude he is "trolling" based on his review.  Take a step...
