  • Replied in Panasonic GF6?
    I had this setup for a while. The camera is responsive and focuses quickly. It does struggle over ISO 1600. When I inherited my wife's E-P5, I sold the camera to a friend of mine. He's an ...
  • The E-P5 has the size charger. Funny how cameras that are meant to be smaller, lighter alternatives to DSLR's come with big honkin' chargers that look like they could almost charge a Prius.
  • Replied in Apt Response
    My friends purchased the E-PL5 with the 14-42 kit lens and the 40-150. They're very happy with the camera. It takes very good pictures and isn't a bear to carry around. Unfortunately, mirrorless ...
  • Replied in E-P5 and E-M10
    I'm glad that my post was helpful to some people. And it's clear that the quibbles I have with the E-M10 are hardly universal. All the more reason to try before you buy. Some have taken issue ...
  • Created discussions E-P5 and E-M10
    So I recently got my wife a new E-M10 and I inherited her E-P5/VF-4. On a recent overseas trip, she used the VF-4 EVF quite a bit out of necessity. When we got back home, she wanted a camera with ...
  • On a related note, we recently ordered four photo books/albums from Costco comprising our last four major vacations. We considered some of the well-known online sites (maybe Snapfish? ... and a ...
  • Replied in Hmmmm ...
    According to sales data, and in light of the responses so far, it seems that (much to my chagrin) m4/3 cameras are more popular in DPReview forums than they are in the rest of the photography ...
  • Replied in em5 to em10?
    Not sure about that ... According to DPReview ( http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympus-om-d-e-m10 ) - "You'll see that the E-M10 is essentially an un-weather-sealed E-M5 but with a better rear ...
  • You can get the E-PM2 and two lenses (14-42 and 40-150) for $399. The same kit has been sporadically available for several months for only $299. While the E-PM2 is short on features, it has the ...
  • Yep, that was my first thought also. Couldn't agree more.
  • There's every reason to shoot jpg if you don't want the hassle of using ACR (or equivalent) to create viewable images. I always shoot raw+jpg but end up throwing away most of the raw files, ...
  • As a programmer, I can attest to the fact that many of us think like this. Specifically, if it makes sense to us, it will make sense to users.
  • Many people seem to prefer the Olympus way of implementing presets. However, I keep thinking that one loses functionality by using the mode dial in this manner. For instance, suppose for whatever ...
  • At least with regard the MySet indicator, I can confirm that the same behavior also exists on the E-P5. It only indicates which (if any) Myset is in use when the mode dial is set to a position to ...
  • Replied in Apt Response
    Sounds just like a couple with whom I'm friends. They want to do better than their iPhone so the first camera they looked at was the D7100. I told them that if they had their heart set on a Nikon ...
  • It depends on the spare battery. I buy cheap third-party batteries that are half as good for one-fifth the price. Since I generally don't shoot several hundred pictures in a day, this works for ...
  • Replied in 9-18mm vs 12mm
    If you're looking to shoot mainly landscapes, there may be plenty of reasons to go with the 12 but speed isn't one of them. For those types of shots, you'll often be stopped down.
  • Replied in Blood Moon
    This is easily fixed by importing the first picture into Lightroom and applying the Blood Moon preset ..........
  • Replied in Pro opinion.
    Agreed. I'm a rather unsophisticated photographer yet this is all plainly obvious to me. I have a mode dial on my camera and I not afraid to use it!
  • If you're photographing kids that don't sit still (is there any other kind?), focus tracking may be important to you. You might want to check published reviews of the two cameras to get an idea ...
