  • Such as what? That is the question. He may have dropped it out the car window and run over it! If you hang around ANY camera brand forums you will see similar posts. I must be miraculously lucky. I ...
  • Very suspicious. You don't give any detail of how it 'broke'. Until we know, we could fairly assume you did something voiding the guarantee, which all manufacturers have in their conditions. I ...
  • I'm sorry you have that problem. Strangely, with the GPU turned off, the speed of LR6 compared with LR5 is night and day. Possibly your system, though mine is only average. Don
  • Exactly my experience. And when I unticked the GPU box, the speed is very much enhanced for those tasks. Far quicker than LR5. Using GPU it was probably slower than LR5. This was after updating my ...

    You are sure going to enjoy your E-M1. The Owners Manual is famous for being obscure at times. Take a look here- Also the Gary Friedman book is very ...

  • Thanks for commenting John. It was very nice light and the little lens worked well. Cheers, Don

    Firmware 3 on the E-M1 and m43 75-300mm worked pretty well, panning or going to and from. Cheers, Don
  • Thanks Andrew. It's the dog action shot of the thousands I have done which I like best. It made it into the December Olympus US Gallery. Cheers, Don
  • Well I have done comparisons with different lenses using both modes, and the resultant keepers averages about the same. This set used the ZD50-200mm on my E-M1. I do remember when I first used ...
  • I have about equal success using C-AF or C-AT+TR, on road racing motorcycles, dogs and speeding gannets. It has taken time and practice, but both settings work reasonably well. Doing alternative ...

    Very nice of you Paul. And very pleased you mentioned the 2nd pair, which for me were about composition and the streaky cloud form complimenting the birds flight I guess. Cheers, Don
