  • Thanks, uRebel Rob. I have downloaded and installed exiftool, but further work on this will be a few days from now. (Life outside photography, taking over ...) Back soon. Charles
  • Thanks, Lawrence. Very helpful, although the E-M1 was already way over my budget and I'm staying put. I feel better seeing that your Canon prices were about double the Olymus prices (if I'm not ...
  • I've searched - found this: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52711743 which doesn't quite answer my question. I'm using HDR1 and HDR2 on occasion, and then when reviewing the Exif data later, ...
  • Thanks, Lawrence. As someone who is staying with the E-M1, I'm disappointed that you found a better camera. (Of course, I'm just happy for you.) I did see the thread with photos of young dancers. O ...
  • The thread where Lawrence was pondering moving from mFT (Olympus E-M1) to FT Canon is "full", so we can't continue there, but he did move ahead with the purchase of a Canon, and is posting on that ...
  • Preliminary observations are "like new", having had repairs. The repair report basically says "replaced MT contacts". I can guess but does anyone know exactly what that means? More importantly, why ...
  • Replied in New E-M1 broken
    My less-than-1-month-old E-M1 has failed, and is under way to the Olympus service facility. I have only FT lenses and use the MMF3 adapter. Gradually the camera began more and more often not to ...
  • Well, thank goodness that you're mentally young and flexible! I've read every message in this thread, and wonder if the more important thing isn't as much the eqpt. as the C-AF function (at ...
  • Thanks, Lawrence. So I wonder if C-AF would help you. It looks further down in this thread that you've made a decision, but the postings and replies intrigued me and got me back to the owner's ...
  • Sounds like a young 78-year-old! Anyway, someone else mentioned manual focus - it doesn't seem that long ago that that's all we had. I'm sure that we missed many good shots, but we also developed a ...
  • Replied in E-M1 flash
    (I know I'm replying to myself.) The Olympus FL-36 flash (not FL-36R) on the OM-D E-M1 with the MMF3 adapter for Four Thirds lenses (not micro-four-thirds lenses, of which I have none), still seems ...
  • Hi, Bill. I"m can't say I ever thought about comparisons between these "older" sensors and newer ones - just assumed that newer was better! I now have an E-M1 - that's what's got my photog juices ...
  • Thanks, Jerry. Even I didn't realize that the camera was that good! No wonder I'm happy with it. I do pine on occasion for a slightly wider view, but am one of those who knows when and how to use ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry MontebelloPatioRain0572
    The skies opened as we were having a restaurant lunch, and I took this of the patio through the window. Several quick exposures with my point-and-shooter on Program, and the composition I chose relates to the colourful flowers in the lower left corner.
    Placed 24th in the challenge. The skies opened as we were having a restaurant lunch, and I took this of the patio through the window. Several quick exposures with my point-and-shooter on Program, and the composition I chose relates to the colourful flowers in the lower left corner.
  • Thanks, gandalfII. This is at ISO 1600 - I certainly couldn't have contemplated anything like that with my FT E-620. Incandescent light shot of dog waiting patiently for a walk - ISO 1600
  • You're too kind. For reference, I'm told that the plant is a variety of Sedum. It didn't have much fragrance, at least in that state which I take to be pre-bloom. (Some varieties of Sedum are ...
  • Created user reviews Great travel camera
    All that this camera does for me is work well. It's easy to carry, has a reasonable mid-zoom range, and in real-world use produces very nice images for me. I've had it a while now, dropped it once ...
  • This was one of two kit-lenses included with my then-new E-500, and it performed yeoman's service (until someone got me the 50-200 f2.8). I gave it away to a relative who still uses it quite happily.
  • Created user reviews quite functional kit lens
    Kit lenses get a bad rap, but are fine for general photography. No one has ever looked at a photo of mine and said, "Hmm ... kit lens!" True - I generally these days use higher-quality lenses, ...
  • Created user reviews Excellent camera
    At the time of writing, this has an "old" sensor (Kodak?), known limited low-light/high-ISO capability, but I got some great photos with it. I gave it to a relative who still uses it, and bought a ...
