  • Replied in EM-5 Upgrade?
    I got one of the first EM5s to come out and have been relatively happy ever since. How could they improve the EM5 and still differentiate it from the EM1, and maintain enough distance from the EM10 ...
  • I also do a lot of hiking and climbing.  I got the 7-14 for my EM5, but sold it for the 9-18 because of the (perceived) size and weight advantage. Yes, the 9-18 does a good job; but I always long ...
  • I also have an OMD as my primary camera, and the 9-18 plus several other lenses to cover telephoto. As a backup, and for shooting in the "standard" range of focal lengths, I got an RX1003.  Now, ...
  • Thanks for the information.  I had read some of it by the User's Manual online, but your hints and tricks will be very useful. Dave
  • Does anyone have a screenshot of the EM10 timelapse screen(s)? Does it give a calculation of the movie length for the case of converting the stills into a movie? Thanks, Dave
  • Replied in em10 from em5?
    You could wait for the new EM5 successor due out soon, according to M43rumors, and see how it compares to the EM10.
  • Yes, my glasses do interfere with the EVF.  In very bright conditions, I cup my left hand over it. I would very much rather have the EVF than try to rely entirely on the screen. All things ...
  • I had the 100M2 and sold it for the M3.  Can't tell much difference in IQ, but I'm not an extreme pixel peeper.  However, the EVF of the M3 was well worth the change and proved itself on a climb ...
  • Yes on your comments for the LF2, but -Preserve the LF1 zoom range -Slightly larger ok for larger aperture at the short end -EVF resolution can be increased if it has no impact on size and battery ...
  • Yes, me too.  I have the RX100M3 and could deal with something larger if it could get more zoom reach.  And although the popup EVF is ok, would much prefer to have it built-in. Dave
  • I have an idea what you mean. I started with Panasonic long ago, when they were just starting in M43, and at this late, I don't even remember which camera I had; but I quickly sold it.  The colors ...
  • No interest in the LX100, but would be interested in an LF2 with 24-200 mm equivalent to complement my RX100M3.
  • I travel to lots of remote places for climbing and trekking, most recently with my RX100M3 which replaced the RX100M2.  I would say -A viewfinder is essential for bright days (of which there are many)
  • I would be extremely interested if it were 7 mm, depending on price of course.  Already have the Oly 9-18.  A faster UWA isn't of interest to me, but a wider one would be.  The upcoming Oly 7-14 ...
  • Created discussions RX100III timelapse review
    Does anyone know how to play back timelapse movies in the camera previously recorded with the timelapse app?  I can't even find the timelapse recordings in playback mode on the camera, although ...
  • What a coincidence.  I just removed the plastic lens cap protector from my new 25 mm f1.8 this morning.  You just need to get under an edge with something sharp.   My fingernails are too short so ...
  • Good comments.  I would like to add that I shot a classical music concert and the MPG4 video was excellent (and editable), but surprisingly, the audio was very good. Of course, one thing the ...
  • I bought the EPL-5 twice as backup to my EM5 hoping I could handle the lack of a viewfinder, but it just would not work out, so I sold them twice.  I'm now definitely in the viewfinder camp. Then t ...
  • Created discussions RX100III long zoom complement?
    Does anyone know of a longer zoom compact camera with electronic or optical viewfinder to complement the RX100III with comparable IQ?  Something like 300 mm (35 mm equivalent).  I've been looking ...
  • I've done a lot of hiking/climbing outdoors in remote areas under bright sun, including Africa. I think you'll need a viewfinder. If you'll be hiking a lot, you may want to think about minimizing ...
