  • hmmm ... Version 1.1 That's funny, what a convoluted process compared to just putting it in the menus like a modern camera. Douglas Brown
  • Thanks everyone. I thought I read there was a surprise firmware update for the E1 a couple years back. How do I find out which version I have, and the most recent version of Olympus View won't work ...
  • Created discussions Quick question ... E1
    Is the battery for the E1 the same as the E510's? Cheers, Douglas Brown
  • Replied in However ....
    When I put the 45mm on my E-M1 it doesn't behave this way, even though the camera has flicker reduction set to auto. I hooked the camera and 45mm up to the computer and there is no firmware update ...
  • Perfect! Who would link flicker reduction with lens behaviour? Thanks. They should fix this in firmware. Douglas Brown
  • Created discussions Question: m4/3's 45mm
    Hi, I remember there was some discussion here about a fix in the settings menu for the 45mm's habit of continuously changing the aperture opening while the camera was powered on. Can't remember ...
  • Taylor has always been into photography. She has been spotted on the street several times with a large DSLR in the past. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if she picked the camera out herself. ...
  • Cross-Country Skiing? Seriously? I've shot the NFL from the sidelines and Indy car racing from photo holes trackside with the 50-200 SWD. I'd be very surprised if this lens couldn't keep up with X ...
  • Thank-you. Douglas Brown
  • : ) Actually, I've photographed Taylor many times. Accredited for up closed and personal in interviews, and each and every one of her tours. She's an amazing performer and a pretty good songwriter. ...
  • I'm all for the miniskirts and combat gear - if it works. Re-imagining the music in different eras and different ways keeps the art-form vital and alive to new audiences. Without different ...
  • It's not the opera itself but this specific production treatment that I found weaker than the other chapters of the Ring cycle. The lighting at times looks like they rigged up two shop lights and ...
  • Well truthfully, you couldn't lose whichever way you went. Excellent camera, excellent lens. Decisions, decisions. ; ) Enjoy the 40-150mm. Look forward to seeing photos from Scotland. My opera ...
  • From the Canadian Opera Company's dress rehearsal for Wagner's Die Walkure, a quarter of the famous Ring Cycle. A dimly lit exercise that stressed the 5 axis stabilizer and low light focusing ...
  • I think you should get the adapter and E-M1 first, try it with your existing 4/3s lenses and see if you can live with that setup. I doubt any comparison between the 35-100 and 40-150 will yield a ...
  • I have the 4/3's version. It's a pretty specialized lens. I use it with a TC for concert shoots from the sound board in medium sized venues, it's not long enough for stadiums or arenas. Also tennis ...
  • I used an E5 and LS10 combination quite a bit. I have to say it never occurred to me to use the LS10 as a microphone for the camera. As the last poster said, record audio and visuals separately and ...
  • Stick with micro, use your 4/3's lenses on an EM1, dabble in full frame if you must (but there's not much in it when all's said and done) I have a full frame Canon now as well as the Olympus gear. ...
  • I use 4/3's and micro lenses interchangebly but always on Micro bodies - mainly E-M1 and E-P5 with an E-M5 as backup. This arrangement does everything I need and photos taken on micro cameras have ...
  • Hi Paul, Only ocassionally when shooting static objects or very deliberate studio work will I switch out of the multi point AF. For any kind of movement, dynamic situations or everyday shooting I ...
