  • Replied in Lee filters?
    I'm wondering how come no one has mentioned Lee filters yet? I had a play with some of these at the weekend as a friend had a set of them with a 62 mm adaptor ring that I could use on my 12-40 ...
  • Thanks Monty :) Yes, we have a friend who lives in one of those houses. They had just finished repairing his balcony from the last storm when this one hit! Oh, and just to clarify - the comment ...
  • Created discussion thread EM1s take to the waves
    It was WINDY here in Cornwall UK yesterday. Combined with high tides, that made for some big waves. I hurried down to the harbour to take some pics, along with many others, and the first person I ...
  • Replied in Cornish Sunset
    Nope. Bright but hat-and-gloves cold!
  • Replied in Cornish Sunset
    Thanks Gary. Great suggestion  I'm guessing you mean primarily from the top?
  • Replied in Cornish Sunset
    Thank you! 😀

    Hi folks I haven't contributed to this thread before, but having just looked through Wormsmeat's amazing collection of 10,000-posts celebratory pics, I thought I'd join in and see if any of that ...
  • Replied in Show us the pics
    If you want some better informed opinions on what is happening, why don't you post photos of the ducks? I recently had an issue with my camera and once I'd posted photos on here, people were able ...
  • Replied in Cute pup, Rick!
    There's something so special about Dalmatians isn't there! Liz
  • Ah, OK, gotcha. Thanks Gary. As the camera is back off to Olympus because the shutter button has stopped working, I'll wait and see what happens on its return! Hopefully all will be well, but if ...
  • I'm not sure I understand you. The focus is on her eye. Are you saying that what I'm seeing (soft and blurry around her eye) is normal? If so, I don't get it, as this is far from sharp - and it's ...
  • Sorry, I've been reading up on this and watching Youtube videos and everything but I'm still not totally sure what a 100% crop is! Not sure if the last photo was one or not. This might be a better ...
  • So I set out to do some test shots this morning. Set my camera up on a tripod, picked a willing subject (the dog, as she was lying completely still and is quite good for picking out the sharpness ...
  • I will set up some tests and post photos tomorrow. I wanted to wait and do it in daylight so that at least I don't have the fading light against me as well! In the meantime, no it's not the manual ...
  • Replied in Thanks Greg
    I'll do all those things. The weird thing is that it came back with all my settings intact. I thought I would have to re-customize all the buttons to my liking, but none of them had changed. Odd, no?
  • Created discussion thread Help me figure out what's wrong?
    I sent my E-M1 to Olympus for repair as I had become yet another victim of rear dial failure. Got camera back eight days later and the rear dial is working perfectly now - hooray! However, ...
  • I just recently started having the same problem. I scrolled back through numerous threads and found some advice which I tried - and it worked. Can't remember where I found it now but the advice ...
  • Thanks. I just spent an (overdue) hour or so reading lots of web-based tutorials about white balance and will make more effort to venture away from the auto setting now!
  • Done now! Thanks. -- “You can learn new things at any time in your life if you're willing to be a beginner. If you actually learn to like being a beginner, the whole world opens up to you.” Barbara ...
  • Thanks both. Very useful. Greg, I'm afraid my learning journey (still very much at the beginning) hasn't got as far as doing anything white balance yet and it was on auto - as it always is! I've ...
