  • Replied in More fps?
    Thanks Jim. I missed that.
  • Replied in More fps?
    I'm finding the 50-200 SWD significantly slows the fps speed of my E-PL5 or E-M1 when it's not on the widest aperture. This is not a problem on the 12-40 or even the cheapo µ14-42. For action ...

    Shades of my old E-1! Right out of the blue, it would freeze up and I had to pop the battery to get it to turn off. One time, I popped the battery out when the camera was properly on… and it set my ...
  • Doug (and others), I was wondering why my E-M1 sometimes slows to 4 or 5 fps and then comes back to 10 fps. This, in good outdoor light. S-AF and JPEGs only I was discussing this on here a few days ...
  • Have you tried it in wifi mode, to see if the power zoom can be used?
  • It will make your use of the camera SOOOO much easier. I won't bother trying to tell you how to get it on, as it's a strange path. Guy's guides can likely get you there.
  • If so, I'm wondering if it can be controlled via wifi, as the zoom on the T-G3 can. Next question: I noticed that the 12-40 does not slow down the 10 fps on my E-M1, when the lens is not on its ...
  • Replied in Sigma 60
    I agree with this. About $200 and a comfortable distance for shooting close-ups without actually being "in-your-face." Here's a family shot from yesterday. F/4.5, as I wanted both boys as sharp as ...
  • Replied in Anders
    Thanks Anders.

    I have been MIA for week at a time and may have missed discussion of this slow-down issue. Has it been posted here before? I guess with sports shooting and other action — where fast sequences ...
  • Replied in Alan
    This is in good light, so the shutter speed is also up. A new finding: just using my ears… it seems that "L" speed sequential is a hair faster than "H" speed, when tighter than the fastest F/stop ...
  • I posed the question, then haven't had time to get back to your answers At first, I thought it was my 50-200 SWD, as Bob guessed. I see at f/2.8, the speed comes back up. If I keep it at max ...
  • Created questions E-M1 fps speed
    I don't know what I'm doing wrong — but on high-speed setting in S-AF, the FPS speed seems to be in the 3 to 5 range. It should be 10 fps. This is with focus locked on a subject in good light. ...
  • Replied in Oly TG-3
    For me, it's a great complement to my E-M1, as it can go places the E-M1 shouldn't: like underwater and in REALLY tough, dirty, wet or cold situations. It's also much smaller and lighter, so there ...
  • Thanks for the spelling lesson! I pride myself with being a good speler (!) — and I hadn't ever noticed the difference in the two words. I guess I rarely use 'complement,' as I'm not a wine writer. ...
  • Ah… THAT's what it was trying to tell me. I ignored it for a few days. Barry
  • At around $200, the Sigma is a cracking good deal. Sharp, sharp… with lens hood included.
  • Good ideas, Bryce. I just got my E-M1 back from a back-dial replacement (warranty) and they had even cleared all of my time settings. Thankfully, I didn't take too many pics before discovering ...
  • Replied in Wifi shortcut
    Wifi control has been around for a LONG time? The E-M1 was the first Oly camera that had it… now  a dinosaur? Barry
  • Spilled off a 2-person sit-on-top rental kayak that had a big dent in the bottom (unbeknownst to us.) As soon as we got on, the thing flipped and we were in 3 feet of water. The camera was on my ...
