  • Replied in Portrait zoom?
    Be realistic. A constant F1. 8 would be massive and defeat the whole point of mft. Use the 17mm 1.8 and set your video button to 2 X digital zoom for 70 mm equivalent. If the results don't meet ...
  • The 9-18 will be your best bet for all round flexibility and portability but if  you stick to the wide end all the time your shots are likely to look very uninspiring unless you get the ...
  • The shadow is caused by your zoom lens encroaching  on the light beam from your flash. Answer 1: Use a smaller lens such as a pancake. Answer 2: Use a larger shoe mount flash or mount it off camera.
  • You seem to be relatively new to indoor portraiture. For the sake of your sanity, and to avoid potentially huge embarrassment ,keep it as simple as possible. Do not even contemplate changing ...
  • Replied in Olympus EPL 5
    I'm very happy with the results from my Epl5. Not so happy that after a couple of months careful use, the outer part of the shutter button fell off somewhere in the Utah desert unnoticed. Should ...
  • Replied in Big deal?
    Any details of the method for remote triggering using an Iphone? Is it a specific  app?

  • Anyone interested in upgrading to an EPL5 in UK-J essops have them for £349 in black only, Amazon have a few left in the three colours at £349.99. Have just bought one in silver-can't be bad with ...
  • Sorry. I don't have an answer, but I was going to post the very same query. My son bought a 5200 at Christmas and he is bitterly disappointed with the shot to shot time with live view, compared ...
  • Agree 100 percent. I use a small tripod when I travel and find it a darn sight easier to use a camera with articulating lcd, as I like to have the choice of landscape or portrait orientation. ...
  • Replied in Pre-focus
    There are no rules, use whatever equipment and techniques you like, that gets you the results you are aiming for. A smartphone is great if you like small sensors.
  • Replied in Pre-focus
  • If you are seriously into street, then sooner or later you will want a lens that you can pre focus. That leaves a small number  of choices, including the 12 and 17 Zuikos and legacy manual focus ...
