  • Oly 45mm 1.8 is hands down the best bang for buck lens in the m43 system. I'm a GX7 owner and this was one of the first primes I got when entering the world of m43. If I had to do it again this ...
  • The kit lens does have IS.

  • B&H Photo had just published a video about photographing animals in a zoo. Some interesting advice there. From my own personal experience I always make sure to bring a macro lens and a tripod if ...
  • NTSC is used mostly in Americas (with a few exceptions) and a few Asian countries, you can see the list of countries which use NTSC here. Singapore uses PAL if I'm not mistaken which is why your ...
  • I'm guessing you live in Europe and thus have the PAL version which is a standard used here, meaning instead of 30p and 60p, you have 25p and 50p. This is perfectly normal. If you're asking ...
  • Replied in Macro lens
    10 photos stacked, ISO 400, f/5.6, 1/50 is the info for this one if my LR isn't lying ;) I used the little Manfrotto Pixi tripod.
  • I've had my GX7 for around a year now. When used in 'normal' conditions (indoors or outdoors during nice weather) a fully charged battery always lasts long enough for me to completely fill a 16GB ...
  • Replied in Macro lens
    Yes it's a stack. I'll post all the exif info as soon as I get home, I can't really remember the settings from the top of my head, I'll have to look it up in LR.
  • Try a microplate from PeakDesign. I believe all of their plates are ARCA-type compatible but the microplate is the smallest one in their lineup and should be a good size for your GM1/5. Microplate link
  • Replied in Macro lens
    Short answer: yes! Since micro four thirds is an interchangeable lens system you have many more options than using a compact camera. Such as dedicated macro lenses, extension tubes, bellows, ...
  • If money is no problem, Sony A7S might tick all the boxes. I've never used one, but according to specs it's a beast in low light (maybe THE best camera for low light available at the moment), also ...
  • You are correct. You can't go wrong with the 45mm. At that price point it's a steal. I never leave home without mine
  • Replied in Hands down
    #3 and #4 should switch places as they're both f/2.8 so 60mm being a longer focal length will give more background blur. Other than that I agree with you. If budget is a concern I'd recommend 45mm ...
  • 1. I'm perfectly happy with the 3rd party options. Currently using a mix of Yongnuo and Nissin flashes and they do everything I need from them. I don't see any advantage in using Olympus/Panasonic ...
  • Replied in GX7 Batteries
    When I purchased my GX7 a little less than a year ago, my first idea was to get some extra batteries to go with it because I also read that battery life was considered poor by many on the ...
  • For shooting a sunset, timelapse is a more suitable option. It will give you a smoother transition between frames since they will all be equal time apart from each other. It's also simpler to set ...
  • Replied in Veydra Optics
    For cinematographers, movie makers and others who wish to pursue video on m43 format this lens set provides brilliant value, especially at the prices they're offering them now while the ...
  • As dinoSnake explained, when you shoot completely open at 1.8 there is no movement of the aperture blades when you click the shutter button so there is no noise. As soon as you change your ...
  • Replied in Cat
    You missed focus :( Instead of ears, try to get the eyes in focus next time. You'll get a much better result
  • Here's a few of my photos with the GX7: Music concert - band Autarch: A stacking experiment with the Olympus 60mm macro lens: Fish portrait Random portrait And an obligatory cat picture I uploaded ...
