  • I own and use both 60Ds and an e-M5, as well as a M1 and a Canon 5D Mk2.  Here's my take on the difference.  Note that I don't shoot video, so this only applies to still photography. I've directly ...
  • You're right.  The problem when making the focusing spot smaller, is how small is small enough?  No matter how small you make it, your subject may even be smaller.  So, what you're doing is the ...
  • First, let me apologize in advance if what I'm about to write has already been considered by you or is "obvious". Neither of the examples I posted were focused with the camera zoomed in - just the ...
  • I have the same lens (Mk 2 version) and have used it with an E-M1 and E-M5 and have found the focusing to be extremely quick and accurate.  For example, this image of a kite surfer is very sharp ...

  • I'm sure that others will disagree because of the cost of my suggestion, but why not go with the Olympus 12-40 f/2.8?  It's a superb lens and you'll have the ability to get it at a discount if you ...
  • Replied in Very Quickly
    I own both cameras and once you get the E-M1 set up so that it's similar/identical to the E-M5, you'll very quickly be using the E-M1 without a problem.  A couple of hours of familiarization is ...

    I have an AW1 and have compared the images from it to those from a compact camera with a small sensor and there's a huge difference - the AW1's images are much cleaner.

    Also, I think that the...

  • Commented on Swimming with the Nikon 1 AW1 article

    I was at Black Rock. It's funny, but we both took the exact same shot of the Alaska Airlines wing on the way there. I'm now using m4/3 equipment (E-M1 & E-M5) for the majority of my photography,...

    Hi Jeff:
    You and I were on Maui with an AW1 at about the same time. I agree with your comments and the pros & cons. The first day I was in the water with it - also at Kaanapali - I really couldn't...

  • You've gotten a lot of good advice, and you recognized some of the mistakes you made.  A couple of things that I would suggest: 1.  Certainly other trains come along that track, and they'll all ...
  • DXO can't completely correct for an inferior lens.  Processing the kit lens and the Panasonic will not result in equivalent images.  While both may not have distortion and CA after being ...
  • I've been struggling with this same decision, but if the only advantages to the Oly lens are less CA and distortion, I'm going to stick with the Panasonic.  I use DXO to process my RAW files and ...

    Thank you, Bob.  I've looked at their books, but it seems like they don't offer the ability to have a panorama span 4 pages - only 2.  I'm beginning to think that's the maximum that I'll find, but ...
  • I've been trying to find a service for self-published photo albums that has pages that will accommodate panoramas.  I've seen services advertise books where the pages fold flat, so I can have a ...
