  • Thanks, Gentle People, for the several replies to my query. Very informative. Confession: I have not and realistically will not read CrisPhoto's entire investigation. It's pretty long and I'm ...
  • So, how to make the sharpest image possible, let's say in that intermediate range like 0.25 second exposure where camera movement is so very noticeable. (1) tripod (hang a weight on it - a camera bag ...
  • Well, that's just slightly off-topic. I think that the best use of space is still right angles, but curves are more esthetic , and we are in an "art-associated" forum. Here's the whole (messy) ...
  • Bless your heart, I missed that. Very helpful. "Noise Reduction" appears three times in each Exif report and it's only the first instance which varies. That could prove very useful in future. ...
  • Thanks, Guy, The Boxerman, and others. I'm a viewfinder man by long habitude, but of course "Spot" or "Spread" autofocus can work well with either, depending. I'm switching to "spot" for a while ...
  • That's right. I use the Fn1 button to get to the focus-selection screen because have disabled the cursor buttons (menu option somewhere, was always hitting them in error). I have FT lenses so fewer ...
  • Yes, that will work. At least, I don't know all the acronyms, but use the camera-as=router Wifi, and the iOS device uses the cell-phone connection to be on 2 networks, essentially, at once. 2048x15 ...
  • Yes, it helped, and prompted me to explore a bit more into the depths of some of the menus. Much obliged. Charles
  • Thanks again, uRebel Rob. The exiftool "arguments" are escaping me for the moment, so following is the output from the plain command, e.g. "exiftool {filename}" - and I'm not seeing any differences ...
  • My lens contacts failed after a few weeks of use. Some of that might have been hard use. Repaired under warranty, but without recognizing that a lens was attached, a highly-computerized camera ...
  • We admit it. Can you say more about your choice of technique for making that image? Why pinhole? What might be its application more generally? I'm not quite following "Pinhole III ", did you say? ...
  • Yes and my talented son has one of my X-series bodies now, although like most of us shoots mostly digital (FF Nikon, the poor fellow). But he likes film. But seriously, what is a boy to do with ...
  • Thanks, Bill. So if I'm geeky enough I can do without them, it sounds like. Charles Olympus Owner's Manuals - not for the faint-hearted!
  • The Olympus menus and owner's manuals are admittedly not for the faint-of-heart. But what do the books add, may I ask? I had a little look also at the website mentioned by another poster in this ...
  • Oh man, that's a beautifully lit image of a dear-to-my-heart camera. This is taken with a FT camera several years ago, and it breaks my heart of have this beautiful film system sitting around and ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Bicycle Rack

    Placed 25th in the challenge. Bicycle rack at office building on the weekend
  • I'm not familiar with the guest mode. Haven't come across it, and don't see it in Olympus's documentation. Can you amplify? Charles
  • Side issue: if I'm understanding that correctly, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 doesn't work like that - took me a moment at the beginning to deduce that the camera itself is the "router". I have to ...
  • This is without the MMF3 adapter (on my E-620), so mentally add that in when considering the FT 50-200 f2.8-3.5 on an E-M1: FT 50-200 f2.8-3.5 on an Olympus E-620, fully extended, lens hood ..
  • E-M1, worked diagonally across the house including one floor up, using my iPhone 6. Went out the front door (10 paces) and the signal dropped. Charles
