Rmark's recent activity

  • Impressive. This will likely make the "FPS" spec in future cameras irrelevant . Will likely change the way we shoot  all sorts of fast moving subjects: sports, birds in flight , wildlife etc. Heck, ...
  • My first Digital SLR was the Olympus E410, bought new in 2007, after using Canon film  SLR's for years ( F1 and A1) Over the next few years sensors and digital cameras improved dramatically in ...
  • Nice shots. I won't' be diving for about 6 more or so months ( still recovering from bilateral knee replacement) so should have enough time to save up for  new housing. The Olympus housing is few ...
  • Thanks. From what have been able to learn the Nauticam housings  are well  thought of. I have had Ikelite housings in the past  both loved and hated them . The Olympus housing for my E410  is very ...
  • While the 40-150 pro lens is no doubt quite nice, the price and the the short (150mm Fl ) puts it out of my plans. The the ZD 50-200 meets my needs. I do like to use UWA lenses from time to time, ...
  • Has anyone used the EM-1 in a housing. Which housing and which ports? I am still using my E410 with the Athena macro port for the Sigma 105 and the Olympus WA dome for the ZD 9-18. The Olympus EM 1 ...
  • There is no question that the ability to change lenses adds a lot of flexibility to a camera, however I read on line here the vast majority of DSLR owners never move beyond the kit lens or lenses. ...
  • What is she going to use the camera for? Are the pictures going to be printed, or heavily cropped? Why not another point and shoot with more manual control. Panasonic LX7 , Olympus XZ2, or as ...
  • I was reluctant to get the EM1, but have to admit its one of the easiest cameras too handle. The sensor is far and away better than on the E30, especially for low light. the lack of AA filter ...
  • Replied in A year later
    I bought the Sigma 105 macro primarily to use with my E410 in an underwater housing, it still goes diving once or twice a year. It is a very nice lens, giving 1:1 macro with more working distance ...
  • Replied in A year later
    At first I was not going to get an EM-1, being disappointed olympus did not come out with DSLR with an upgraded sensor. After some thought , recognizing mFT as the new reality, my choices were ...
  • Replied in Yep
    DPreview says the G1x has about 1/2 stop less highlight headroom compared to others. Unlikely you would ever notice that, if you did the camera allows for DR correction which would put it on a par ...
  • Good thinking. The flash is going to make the 14-42 a better lens because you will be able to stop down  a bit. The difference between amateur looking and professional looking photos often boils ...
  • Replied in Lens
    If this is a pro game, or division I NCAA, good luck bringing the  long zoom lens. Many venues are restricting what they consider professional camera equipment, using security as an excuse. You ...
  • Of course not. I stopped worrying about other folks stuff years ago. Actually I rarely see people with FF cameras, mostly cell phones and a fair number of crop sensor DSLRs. Besides, my EM1 with ...
  • Could you tell what the RRS product number is for the add on fitting? Thanks
  • That really sums it up pretty well. I don't plan on getting the 40-150, since the 50-200 meets that need.  If the new 300 f4 is in the same price  range as the 40-150 I would be fine with it.  Not ...
  • Replied in Lightbox
    I have been following this discussion as I was looking for a low cost solution to do the the same--- copy slides. I already have the 12-50 and the ES-1 is not very expensive. Your system is well ...
  • Created questions HLD7 use on the EM1
    Having recently bought the battery grip on eBay, I am curious how many EM1 owners use it routinely. I like using it with my 4/3 lenses but it does add more than a little weight.
