  • Replied in A year later
    A year later I am content with my 4/3s gear. What started out as angst over the loss of a 4/3s upgrade path has turned into a appreciation of leaving the constant buying of new gear. I have my ...
  • Replied in Why not
    You wouldn't be the first person to have multiple systems for a variety of reasons. You like the E 5, the VF, the colors AND you have glass and flashes that work with it. You might gain something ...
  • With the WCU it was easiest to date them.
  • Replied in Nope
    I'd buy a proper E 7, but I'm not gutting my E 5 for some half baked rebuild. Oly moved on, it is what it is. Plus, pushing gear to do what it isn't suppose to do is half the fun. There are ...
  • Replied in Try this
    Take a shot in auto to see what settings the camera chooses, then switch to manual with those settings and play around with them. That way you can see what happens when you change a setting in ...
  • Replied in Love my 3's
    My E 300 is my calm camera when I need a stress free day. Set it to manual with a OM 50 or 28mm and go shoot. Each shot takes time to set up and hold perfectly still, reminding me of my OM days. Th ...
  • Personally I have never used anything but the Olympus SRF-11 or my own solutions. Over the years there have been people here that have used the Metz successfully. Have you looked for the Olympus ...
  • Replied in As always
    Stunning work. Looks like it was a good week to drop by.
  • Replied in Hey Brad
    Just dealing with life unfortunately. Illness in both families have kept us pretty busy and the WCU is in good hands, so I have been giving the cameras a rest. Thanks for keeping the WCU alive.
  • Replied in Ladybug feast
    When first spotted, I thought I had a ladybug laying eggs. Once I had the gear set up so I could see it, I saw it was eating them. E 5, 50mm, EC 20, SRF-11 E 5, 35mm, EC 20, FRF Thanks for looking
  • You can manually set the FL for IS the same as you would a OM lens.
  • Since Oly doesn't allow stacking accessories, you will have to git one of them and make it a pass through or lose functionality. We use to stack the EX 25 buy first outting the lens on and setting ...
  • Funny thing about the best glass is it takes effort to make it shine. Otherwise it will show your weakness very quickly.  The right settings, pinpoint focus and turn off the IS, old school is ...
  • Nice shots, the cormorants should be flying here too. I should know this weekend. The best I can offer is to back off of 200mm some and I think you will find it will track/ focus much better. I ...
  • Sounds like the E 330 to me. Oly doomed this fantastic little camera from the start with a $1200 price tag. The only feature you could really see was the live view and it is what drove the price up ...
  • Replied in Tube flash
    This is a post I did a while back on the tube flash. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/28743471 I'm not sure if it would work for you but seeing that it cost nothing, you might give it a try. I ...
  • I'd compare what it would take to get it fixed to the cost of a good used one. If it makes sense to get it fixed then do so and see how the results are on the EM-1 before deciding to sell for ...
  • Volts and amps appear to be the same, if the plug and polarity are it would seem the AC-3 is a less expensive version of the AC-3. The AC-1 has worked on the C-8080, E 300, E 3 and E 5 for me. Migh ...
  • Nice write up Stan. I'm glad my post inspired you to continue the discussion. Very nice shots. The reversed lens works well for you. I got to shoot over the weekend some. I've been changing the ...
  • Replied in The smallest gem
    I have a lot of glass, mostly HG and even one SHG. The lens I would have to replace immediately if mine was lost is the humble 35mm macro. I have it's big brother the 50mm and while it's a stunning ...
