  • Created discussions Western decline?
    I thought this was an interesting article. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-32290224 " Speak to those who are in charge of the West's defence or have recently stepped down, as I did for Radio ...
  • Replied in how you use it.
    It's not the dynamic range of your tool, it is how you use it. It helps that most people looking at images get excited over pleasing colour for more quickly than the technical specs of the camera ...
  • I don't consider the E300 the 'next iteration' of the E1. It was a consumer cam but definitely not a 'me-too' product. I think the E330 was a cracking camera. The E-M1 is not a 4/3rds camera, ...
  • Replied in Absolutely!!
    It was one of the most promising starts I've seen in any new format. Indeed. What would have happened if Oly had built on their unique and successful E1 instead delivering me-too *@#!* in their ...
  • It's only the last photo that could be considered a 'bokeh trap' in my opinion. The rest have subjects that are in focus and the oof region is not intrinsically interesting. It just makes up the ...
  • ... and you too can enter the world of diffraction. Just ask a D800 driver.
  • The old Oly 7-14 could focus very close. If similar, it will be cm's (which is normal everywhere in the world except the US). This is from the old 7-14.
  • Replied in interesting
    It seems that Oly's bigger lenses are optically better in certain areas (wide open in this case). So m4/3rds offers you choice between size and optics in their top end lenses. I'm getting ...
  • The 4/3rds 7-14 is artificially stopped down by Oly. It's physically an f2-f4 variable aperture lens. On the DSLR bodies, you can access the wider apertures by pressing the lens release button as ...
  • Replied in E1 v E3 colour
    If you match the white balance of the E1 and E3, the colours will closely match. At default, the E3 produces cooler images than the E1. Here is one of my old threads on the matter: http://www.dprev ...
  • Replied in Ebay E-1s
    I think he meant a camera that doesn't need an adapter in order to mount the 'native' lenses.
  • Before I say this, I want to say that on the whole, I think Oly m4/3rds cameras are excellent buys for many people. During the 2007 release of the Oly E3 'professional' camera, Olympus handed their ...
  • I knew both mechanical curtains were used, but I didn't realise Olympus was basically 'faking' the first curtain to allow an electronic first curtain to follow. That's thinking outside the box.
  • The 0-sec Anti-shock delays the mechanical first curtain. It is not electronic.
  • Replied in shutter shake?
    Unknown, but it is possible that the weight is helping. Again, unknown. Could be a bad copy. But based on Oly's specs, you shouldn't be able to tell the two lenses apart based on sharpness. What I ...
  • Created discussions EM5 II question
    Does anyone know if exposure bracketing is possible in the 40mp mode?
  • Replied in shutter shake?
    That sounds like shutter shake. Did your friend use the use the 0 second delay? When asked what they are most proud of, the engineers at Oly are saying the 40-150. There isn't likely to be that ...
  • Replied in Whoa there
    The moment you start talking FoV without reference to aperture, m4/3rds is dead. Panasonic LZ - 40 ---> 22 - 940mm equivalent to 35mm. Weight 524 g (including camera). Cost $200. How is Oly's 300mm ...
  • On the whole, I agree. What I'm am objecting to is Oly comparing them to 35mm lenses with twice the physical aperture and calling it life for like. I'm not objecting to the lenses themselves. I'm ...
  • Dangerous. iPhone. I've been with 4/3rds since 2004 and shot professionally with it. I really know the trade-offs. The key to m4/3rds is that it has high quality small lenses. The moment Oly goes ...
