  • 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 ...
  • My Digital Zuiko 35-100mm f2 focus's just fine with latest firmware. I do find that you get better results with AF and this lens on an E-M1 if you use the 9 point autofocus mode though. Douglas Brown
  • Actually, the same rules apply at the sound board as in the pits, and for Keith Urban we were only allowed the first two songs. So it was doubly disappointing to be all the way back there  ; ) When ...
  • Here is that thread: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53734157 Here is what I was talking about: http://chimeralighting.com/products/lightbanks/film-video/lanterns/ I actually prefer the Profoto ...
  • Wow, beautiful home. I'm with the guys saying don't go too wide, but one tip if you do decide to go wide is to use camera height to fore-shorten the expanse of flooring in front of the camera ...
  • No pit. That was with the pass. I mean, on the one hand he was very generous with accreditation, but the location for the media area was disappointing. Here's another advantage to mirrorless you ...
  • Created discussions Keith Urban in Concert ....
    Meant to post this a while ago but got busy. Some photos from the recent Keith Urban concert in Hamilton, the first since he cancelled some dates because wife Nicole Kidman's father passed away. Th ...
  • For dedicated architectural photographers the computer's software is still best, but this new keystone filter will come in handy for travel photos when the laptop might have been left at home. Doug ...
  • Replied in Focus settings
    I have the nine point focus arrangement enabled (BTW: I only use multi-point AF with legacy 4/3's lenses, with Micro lenses I switch back to single AF point), Face detection off (you get too many ...
  • With nine focus points enabled I don't find focusing with the wide end of 4/3's lenses to be any problem at all, and I'm using the 12-60mm SWD as my standard lens on the E-M1 so I shoot wide a lot. ...
  • Thanks. Honestly, other than sports coverage there is nothing I've shot in the arts/culture/concert field that the E-M1 hasn't handled in an absolutely straight-forward, down to business, ...
  • Yes, I was happy with the flash results from the E-M1. The recycle rate kept up with the action nicely. And the performance of the 12-60mm and 50-200mm on the E-M1 was right up there with the ...
  • In case you are considering the Think Tank holster, I have the 10 V2.0 model and it won't hold the camera and 35-100mm with the lens hood on. You'll need something larger. BTW: Congrats on the ...
  • A couple weeks ago I started a thread on the problem I was having when using flash with the E-M1. After much discussion it turned out that the evaluative pre-flash in E-TTL mode was the culprit, ...
  • Replied in Perhaps ....
    Superzooms have reached a 'good enough' level of quality for most people's needs. When I travel the only lens with me is the Olympus 14-150mm which produces excellent results over most it's range, ...

  • In sports closer is always better. When I would shoot The Rogers Cup from the media pit courtside I was using a 150mm f2 with 1.4 teleconverter, that's 410mm equiv. and we were close enough to ...
  • Replied in Matin vest .....
    I have the Matin teflon vest and use it to cover NFL and CFL games, running back and forth along the sidelines, the Toronto Film festival where this is very little extra space in the media areas, ...
