  • So I know what you're talking about, how do you define IMAGE QUALITY? What was the comparison you made? Was it prints (i.e. images) of a reasonable size, or files viewed at 100% on a monitor?
  • I've just upgraded from Snow Leopard to Mavericks and from Aperture 3.2.4 to 3.5.1. Long session. My antiquated version of MS Office is now defunct, but I knew that in advance. Aperture 3.2.4 often ...
  • Created discussions Image Stabilisation Question
    I don't recall doing anything to the image stabilisation settings when I got my E-M1, but it's quite possible I inadvertently did. I since noticed it was set to S-IS AUTO (Landscape Panning IS). ...
  • Thanks for the link. For the OP, you may find a useful hint in my ramblings on customising the E-M1. Link below. I'm still learning to use the E-M1, and what I do in a month's time may be different ...
  • Thanks. Food for thought. I'll play with the settings tonight. I plan to shoot 90% in aperture priority, raw, S-AF, one AF point, fill flash, auto ISO and face/eye detection enabled. It can't hurt ...
  • My E3 has two custom resets and two mysets. I used the custom reset buttons on this camera to return to my default settings, and these applied to PSAM. My defaults were basics like ISO 100, S-AF, ...
  • I'm way back at Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I'll upgrade my OS around Christmas time. The Apple site indicates that the E-M1 is not yet supported by Aperture 3, so no reason to do it right now. I've been ...
  • I've just bought an Olympus E-M1, and Aperture 3 has yet to recognise the raw file format. The raws load into Aperture okay, but a triangular icon thingie is displayed. I just want an assurance ...
  • That explains something to me. I often see comments on another forum about the E3's crummy continuous autofocus. I get it to work very well with the 50-200mm SWD in good light tracking athletes. I ...
  • Thanks. That's what I needed to hear. It's the killer feature of the system for me, more so than the new IBIS, but that's good too. If I can ramp up ISO and thus shutter speeds and connect with ...
  • Do you have an opinion on eye detection? I'm getting the 75mm with the E-M1. I want this feature to work well for outdoor portraits, thus saving me the hassle of moving AF points or using ...
  • I've used the 50-200mm SWD as an outdoor portrait lens, so the length of the 75mm won't be unfamiliar to me. I'll be interested to see what a full body shot at f1.8 will look like in terms of ...
  • I'm soon to receive and E-M1 and 75mm f1.8. They're paid for, so soon should be soon...? Outdoor portraiture will be my main use for the 75mm, but I'll also use it indoors where space allows. I'm ...
