  • Oh, I brought everything but since I'm m43 that was/is easy - 4 lenses, (up to) 2 flashes, a full size micro-collapsible tripod, 8 AA batteries, an extra camera battery, 2 chargers, flash ...
  • That's....a good question.  I had a 300mm (equivalent) and when I go back [not "if") I want at least a 400mm for whale and bird watching, but there are also other factors to consider.  Again, you ...
  • For the most part you'll be too active to fiddle with equipment and often fighting for every spare photon you can manage, so polarizers and ND filters will not see much use. I take it you are ...
  • Well, I guess the best answer is that Olympus stopped including them at some point in time, some undetermined period in the mid-80's.
  • I got my Zuikos in the '80's.  All the lenses I purchased, the 24 f/2, the 180 f/2.8 etc., did not come with any form of case.  I can't remember if the soft pouch that I kept the 180 in came with ...
  • No, Olympus lenses did not generally come with cases. The only Zuiko lenses that did were the uber-expensive professional models; my Zuiko 350mm f/2.8 came with an aluminum-sided case with ...
  • I just got the Olympus 9-18mm yesterday and I also have the Samyang 7.5mm fisheye.  Here are my thoughts. If the purpose of your hiking and treks is landscape photography then get the Panasonic ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery

  • Try 2 things on your next shoot, one at a time to see the effects: 1) move the knife behind the light axis - the blade needs to act like a mirror to resemble a mirror in the photos.  Since angle of ...
  • Well, if you hang around the m43 forums you will indeed see problems listed, such as this, so it is not completely unbelievable. I for one chose Panasonic due to this (ironic, as my GX7 did ...
  • Replied in Boring?
    Since when did the conversion change from yearly sales volume to current owners using the products they already own? In other words, changing the subject to avoid the debate of market boredom due ...
  • Yes, BORING. Sorry if you get all butt hurt from being a fanboy with that. Did you not miss the Damned with Faint Praise in the *very first page* of the EOS 7D mk II review? dpreview.com/reviews/c ...
  • If I am correct, RAWTherapee cannot handle automatic software lens correction profiles, like m43 etc?
  • They are cropped out of the original frame's FOV, then reduced to 500x500px / 600x600px from their original size (about 2500x2500px) to post on this forum. Here are more recent shots, taken 2 days ago
  • No, you should be at least getting the Flash EV display.  Look on the flash for its settings first, I would believe that they are easier to accidentally change versus the camera.
  • According to http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/oima_cckb/E-PL1_Instruction_Manual_EN.pdf the power output controls are only available with the internal flash; when using external flash, you get ...
  • Huh?  Olympus has offered the 12-40mm as refurbished at least 3 times in the past month, they just come and go out of refurb stock very quickly.  Here today, gone today. If you want an Oly 12-40 ...
  • Yes, it is a failed hot shoe, it happened to me last month. It won't take a month to come back from Panasonic service in Texas, I got my GX7 there and back within 2 weeks (shipped out to Texas UPS ...
  • Yes. I will post images on black backgrounds for consistency. The shot originally posted. A bit of trickery here in order to get DOF, the camera is angled in greater alignment with the ring ...
  • I am doing jewelry photography with a Canon 450D and the Canon 60 f/2.8 macro.  I shoot at f/10 and your DOF is far superior, your shots look great and IMHO I don't think you will get more from ...
