  • Agreed - flash = disaster. Unfortunately a great many photographers no next to nothing about websites, and there are plenty out there willing to exploit their ignorance. Flash is a very quick and ...
  • In reference to other discussions, I think this makes it clear what Olympus believe to be the OMD pecking order.
  • I think the tilting LCD is a plus or a minus depending on your personal preference. I prefer tilt, but if I was shooting video, I'd prefer full articulation. Smaller and lighter body - vs more ...
  • I think you are actually agreeing with me. Canon certainly do not consider the 6D to be a pro camera. It's pro-sumer (as for that matter is the 5d series) - and I'd certainly put the EM-5ii in ...
  • I don't think you can make a direct comparison. In a sense, the EM-5 could be seen as the prototype for the whole OMD line In that way all subsequent OMD cameras are a replacement for the EM-5 ...
  • LOL - "dogging" has a rather special meaning in the UK, so I was wondering what I was going to see here! Certainly a good example of red-dot site use, but I'm also curious about focus - what mode ...
  • This is my biggest bugbear with the smaller cameras - being forced to use an LCD screen makes proper camera holding technique pretty much impossible. With the traditional SLR or rangefinder ...
  • Sorry I didn't mean to use the all points active mode - I use single point, but can select a single point from anywhere in the frame. Essentially removes the need for focus and recompose. For my ...
  • I wondered that too - surely physics tells us that the amount of travel at the end of a long stick is greater than somewhere towards the middle. (for the 2 axis addressed by OIS anyway).
  • Replied in Oh double no!
    Well that's my inclination - and its not that I don't want to pay - but the bride to be is insisting (which is a bit flattering) and doesn't trust anyone else. I'm seeking a good reason not to ...
  • I wouldn't argue with your lens choices, but of what the OP says he has, then I think the 12-40 is the best option.
  • Replied in Oh no!
    Likewise - never really enjoyed doing weddings, but it paid for stuff. Happily now I can manage without weddings. Though I'm told I will be doing my son's. Probably safer for all concerned :)
  • Replied in Oh no!
    My apologies Paul, yes you did say that and I ignored it. But I would still advise not shooting when the pro is shooting. It's his setup - let him do his job. When I'm in that position, I want the ...
  • I guess its very different to landscape photography - speed is of the essence .. "the" moment won't last. So everything you can do to speed up the process helps - you won't have time to play ...
  • Replied in Oh no!
    Speaking as someone who has shot weddings professionally and unofficially, I disagree with this. Why would your niece want more shots from you more or less the same as the pro? I'd suggest you ...
  • Not sure I'd agree with dishonesty (though of course people do make wild claims about what their cameras can do), more "selective" information. It's very easy to focus on the strengths of a camera ...
  • It had its moments ... biggest fear was going over the side with an anchor wrapped round my neck :) It looks comparable(ish) to the Canon 300 f4 L - a lens I had a while back and was very ...
  • I can sort of buy that - except surely the effectiveness of the IBIS for such a combo (and the 1.4 was designed with this in mind) could be determined mathematically before the design was ...
  • Well part of the reason for switching was the difficulty of handling my Canon 500 f4 in small boats. The 300mm looked like the ideal solution. Unfortunately I couldn't afford to hang on to both ...
  • Replied in Is it delayed?
    When I bought my EM-1 last September I was told summer 2015. In December I was told by the UK head of sales that the 7-14 would be spring, and the 300 early summer - but then added, realistically, ...
