  • Replied in DxO Perspective
    It's the best way to correct perspectival distortion of just about every kind in photos. http://www.dxo.com/intl/news/dxo-perspective-mac-os-x-dxo-labs-puts-all-power-its-geometrical-corrections-ha ...

  • Replied in #1 is better
    First, I agree with everything Victor has said already. Of the two you postd, #1 looks better to me — and fairly obviously so. #2 looks like you tilted it to the left too far. Setting up a ...
  • What happened in the last decade resembles the desktop publishing "revolution" in the 1980s and '90s. For a decade or more, everybody with a Mac, a LaserWriter and PageMaker or even Word thought ...

  • I couldn't do anything about this until now because I had a number of assignments in the month of June but July is slow and I can finally live without the E-M1 for a couple of weeks, so off the ...
  • I tried it myself before replying to you and couldn't. I thought I had the latest firmware update but perhaps you're right and I'm an update behind current. Can't tell right now because I just ...
  • Are you using an iPhone or an Android? If you're using an iPhone (as I am), I don't think you can do what you want to do. From the thread you linked to, it sounds like Remote Shutter is an option ...

  • Replied in [OT]
    NowHearThis's sig: Nothing to contribute to discussion on the E-M10. Just have to say that I get a real kick out of some folks' clever signatures. :-) Will
  • Nice shots, Martin — not just the owl, but the others, as well. About the owl: Were you using flash? Or did you simply do a really nice job in post lightening up the owl against the bright blue sky? ...
  • I'm curious to know what's wrong with your current body, which I take it is an E-PL1. You said that you miss "eye-level viewing." Not sure I understand. Are you saying that you wish that the ...
