  • Replied in Flash for E620
    I have an E620 and I have an FL50R. The FL50R works well with the E620, but the combination can be quite top-heavy, particularly if you're using one of the smaller lenses on the E620, like the 14-42. ...
  • Sounds like what happened to mine.  If it's the same thing, then the 12-60 is defective and needs to be sent in for repair (if I remember correctly, it's a little internal cable that goes). If ...
  • I think I've figured out the most likely cause of the increased noise in my E620. Heat. I live in the tropics.  Grenada, to be precise.  And that picture was taken around the warmest location on ...
  • I've used Corel's PSP 6.0 and Elements.  I'll have to give them another try.  Between PSP 6.0 and OV3, I found OV3 gave the best results under most circumstances, but PSP could help with some ...
  • Now you see why I refer to my E620 as a "noise machine" :-) Gradation was set to AUTO when this picture was taken.  However, as the image was taken in RAW mode, it can be switched to NORMAL before ...
  • I've attached a crop of one of my RAW images, with no noise reduction, taken this Saturday.  The noise in the image should be readily apparent. Again, this doesn't bother me too much because I ...
  • I now shoot in RAW with my E620 with the noise reduction set to OFF and "develop" the picture using Olympus Viewer 3. The noise is still there, even at ISO 200, but it's a fine-grained noise that ...
  • I think with digital cameras, as is the case with other electronic items, more advancement makes less of a difference.  So it's not a case of if there's a difference between the older sensors and ...
  • I tried a variation of this today with my E620, which is a "noise machine", as anyone familiar with that camera would know.  Basically I set the exposure to center-weighted, the recording mode to ...
  • Yeah, they're going to see a 2.5x1.5" screen and completely miss the much bigger photographer looking down at his camera and pointing it at them ;-). Seriously, with a fully-articulating screen, I ...
  • Hmm.. one of the reasons I became interested in the EM5-II is BECAUSE with it Olympus has  gone back to the same kind of fully-articulated screen as I've enjoyed with my E620, which BTW works ...
  • Remember when Olympus claimed that 12MP was enough for most photographers? :-) http://www.cnet.com/news/olympus-12-megapixels-is-enough-for-most-folks/
  • Why just "good" for sports /action photography? I'm considering purchasing one to cover our hashes, which fall into that category.
  • Replied in But Camley...
    Agreed!  Quirks and all, I love my Olys!
  • Thanks for your comments Jim. As for what is a "hash", see http://www.grenadahash.com/hash-faqs. Some of my images are on that site, as well as on our FB page at ...
  • Thanks for the response, but I think if I'm going to get a new camera, I want something that's a bit more of a dSLR, with an eye-level vewfinder. I guess what I'm asking here is if the improvement ...
  • Created discussions Should I get an EM5-II?
    I've been pondering that question for a few days.  I've got an EPL5, which supposedly shares the same sensor. Most of my photography with the EPL5 happens at the end of our weekly hashes, and this ...
  • Does that cover ALL FT glass?  I am considering the EM5-II as well (just got the go-ahead from the financial controller), but I'm also considering getting one of those converters that will allow ...
  • Well, not so fine.  I found that some of the pics I took post-surgery looked a bit... strange, so I did some further investigation, and... That's a view straight down the barrel.  There's fungus on ...
  • Sweet!
