  • Thanks Gary!  I thought I could've done a little better with both of them, but then, the light wasn't giving me as much to work with. I live in Alaska, on one of the Aleutian Islands in a place ...
  • I don't have an exact range, as I've never measured.  And I would say that at a certain point the wifi connection just gets less responsive, and sometimes disconnects, but it isn't always at the ...
  • That's good news.  I learned from past releases that Olympus USA tends to get things quick, so I'm hoping my pre-order makes it by the end of the year at least.
  • Created discussions K-50 and 300mm F4, experience?
    Hi everyone, I've never posted in the Pentax forum before, as I primarily shoot micro 4/3's.  I've thought Pentax has been doing some good things with their cameras lately however, and I had an ...
  • Sure, it's not teeny.  But as someone who is viewing is a better alternative to the 150mm F2 "little tuna," that lens seems pretty compact.  And even the tele doesn't seem to add too much bulk. I'm ...
  • I'm in the same boat, leaving the auto ISO limit at 1600, and I only use the higher ISO's when a specific situation screams it. I have been very impressed at what output I can get at 1600, but I ...
  • Replied in Wow!
    That tree in the second set is just stunning.  Great shot, and cool to see what the painter did with it too. Wally
  • Replied in Yoga Perch
    Thanks! I guess technically, I can't take credit for that capture as I was the model, but it's nice to be able to preset the focus and exposure, hand the rig to a buddy (Who was tall, which really ...
  • Yes!  I love the peak designs clip, it has absolutely been a godsend.  I can't imagine a much better solution for keeping a camera ready to go without it being in the way or uncomfortable.  I have ...
  • Created discussions Last Gasp of Fall
    Hi everyone, I had one of those rare weekends out here in fall where a gorgeous day lined up with a Saturday and I even had a hiking buddy around.  So we started at dawn and climbed three peaks on ...
  • Replied in Lasers
    Hmmm, faster shutter would be nice.  I suppose this may put them right back to the position Olympus has been in before where there is some notable muddling between the flagship model and the ...
  • It'll be interesting to see what they do.  But as someone looking for a second body to complement an E-M1, it seems hard to beat just getting a current E-M5, especially with prices finally going ...
  • I've been going through some old gear, realizing I have probably about a thousand dollars of old 4/3 gear to sell, even if I sell cheap and easy.  So I fired up the battery on my trusty old E-620, ...
  • Replied in Exactly.
    Exactly. Considering the high quality of cheap bodies from "way back" in the E-M5 generation of technology, I don't think there is any problem for anyone who wants a cheap, low-frills setup that ...
  • Glass?  What kind of cheap lens uses glass?  Olympus should make it of "all metal" construction.
  • And I hope that the surprise demand for the 40-150 F2.8 means there are a lot of people interested in that lens beyond all the fanatics who are on the waitlist and wanted it yesterday.
  • Is it just me, or is this just par for the course of late when it comes to lens releases? The high demand may cause additional delays, but it seems like most of the anticipated releases in M4/3 ...
  • Replied in High demand...
    Wow, I didn't think demand would be quite that high.  I wonder how long it'll be before one can just order it without a wait. This is good for me though, it'll make it easier to refrain from even ...
  • Nice!  I really like the whole atmosphere you managed to capture on that one.
  • Thanks, I try!  I never know just how long I'll be out here, so I may as well shoot everything I can before I find myself in a less photogenic locale. BTW, that Gretzky quote is perfect, for hockey ...
