  • Sorry, I thought you were using the FL-300R off camera. If you set the camera to RC mode then the FL-300 will support the FP mode and you can use any shutter speed.  There is another simple...

  • I'd stay with the same brand as your body. In your case it's Olympus but if you had a Panasonic body I'd stay with the Panasonic lens. The main reason is the better support for the lens. For...

  • The Anti-Shock setting is an option. You don't have to use it. Once you do the firmware upgrade you can flip between setting Anti-Shock to (0) or OFF. Since (0) is an electronic shutter, changing...
  • Realistically for C-AF purposes children aren't fast moving. Neither are dogs for that matter. Fast moving subjects would be things like cars and motorcycles. BIFs aren't that fast moving but...
  • and some just see swirls in the bread. From your lack of a guess we can safely conclude that you haven't a clue which shots were taken with Anti-Shock set to (0) and which with Anti-Shock set to OFF.
  • Replied in You tell me
    Here are some shots. Some have Anti-Shock set to (0). Some have Anti-Shock set to OFF. Which ones are which? Of course the only valid test would have someone set Anti-Shock to (0) or OFF, someone...
  • Doubled the shutter speed to see if that makes a difference. I'm not using a remote release so it's possible I'm introducing blur but not possible that I'm eliminating it.
  • One, two, and five have AS set to (0). So you got a couple. LOL Actually that's not bad. Much better than I could do, I'm sure. To be totally honest, I used 1/80 because I forgot about the shutter...
  • I am a big skeptic of the advantages of Anti-Shock. Here is a series of six shots. The shutter is 1/80 which should be in the range to induce vibrations. Can you tell which shot(s) were taken using...
  • That's a very slow shutter for blurring due to the shutter. At this shutter speed the vibrations should have ceased shortly into into the exposure, diminishing its effect. If it were the shutter...
  • I think C-AF would be better than manual for BIFs. Zoom AF might help but I've never tried it for BIFs. Try nine center points and 6 or 6.5 fps. Setting the C-AF so it doesn't come off the subject...
  • The Kingfisher isn't in focus. I don't think it's motion blur and I doubt the shutter was too slow. Should have been fast enough. Too bad because the shot is pretty neat. BIFs are hard and take...
  • Even if this new "feature" didn't do anything at all it would serve the purpose of eliminating 95%+ of the SS claims. If people think that an electric curtain has eliminated blur from shutter...
  • +1. The "Storage" makes no sense.
  • the million dollar photos that were ruined by shutter vibrations. ;-) Not sure if you understand the issue, but the firmware is "the fix", assuming there was a need to fix something in the first...
  • Nikon, Canon, and Olympus all work the same way. You trigger the off-camera flashes with an optical signal. If you think about the need for an optical signal then it becomes clear that you have to...
