  • 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 ...

    Thanks Collin. Labs rule :) Love yours, Don

    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

    Thanks Danny. Nice site you have there, love the Tui shot! Cheers, Don

    Thanks Andrew. The E-M1 is a lot more forgiving than my E-3 in demanding conditions. Cheers, Don

  • Hi Murph, thanks and glad you like them :) Don

    E-M1 and m43 75-300 lens. C-AF and C-AFTr. Three at sunset and the "bombing" color shot on a bright morning. Cheers, Don
  • No EVF, detachable or built in. Big time blunder. Most else exceeds expectations. Don
  • Fair enough, but that sounds more like a one off part failure or quality control fault. I was referring to a now recognized design/materials deficiency, likely present in all E-M1's, surfacing when ...
  • I am not understanding why people think you should pay Olympus for an extended warranty to cover an Olympus design shortcoming. I have a cupboard full of other camera brands, and none have ever ...
  • Thanks for that info. What one has learned to expect, sadly. Don
  • Sorry to hear that. I guess he was always on a hiding to nothing against the established companies. Always sorry to see the talented small guys go under. Don
  • Created discussions Sagelight Sunk?
    I have not been able to connect for a week or so to the Forum or the Home page. It sure does have a chequered history, but does anyone have any knowledge as to whether this is just a glitch? Don
  • I'm sure glad no-one looks at my images at 400% blowup! Cheers, Don
