  • I've been using Peak Design for about 3 years, and for me it's the best camera strap system I've ever used, and I've tried a lot of them during my 50 years of actively pursuing photography, a ...
  • I also have the EM5, EM1, and EM5ii, and, for the same reasons you mention and more, the EM5ii is my favorite, and the one to take with me for sure on overseas trips. The EM5ii video (frame rate, ...
  • Replied in Two bodies...
    You should get a second body: - each of you can have a camera, and perhaps reduce lens change frequency - backup in case one body fails on trip Only question here may be, will you need a ...
  • I don't own any of those, but what you need to do as first steps is to list the dimensions of all 3 of these and then consider 1. Which is more important to you - a) the shorter travel (folded ...
  • The E-M5II already has what the new E-M1 v3.1 firmware update notes calls "live view boost 2". I don't have my E-M5II with me now, and I don't remember exactly what it's called in the menu, but it ...
  • I'm quite pleased with the entire Peak Design system, from Capture Clips to their various straps. The Slide is very comfortable and flexible for my heavier setups, but another plus is that it uses ...
  • Christopher, The "crack" sound you describe when you unlock the RRS legs sounds normal - there is a discernible increased-tension-then-release as you unlock an RRS leg, exactly as the Gitzo G-locks ...
  • Replied in Leg Locks
    I agree, the Gitzo leg locks are about the best, have certainly been my "gold standard" for comparing other tripods to for many years. One can have the best carbon fiber material leg construction, ...
  • Mark, The RRS TVC-24L's largest leg is 33mm diameter, not 24mm, and the smallest leg is 20mm. The first digit "2" in the model number refers to the RRS model series (all have the same diameter ...
  • Also agree with you that, in many cases, the GM5 can be one's "only" or main camera as well. It is a very nicely engineered photographic instrument. :) -- -Dennis W. Austin, Texas http://www.pbase ...
  • Hi, Tom. I agree with you that for a lot of "travel" situations the GM5 could be the perfect camera. In my own case, there are multiple considerations for my choices of ideal travel camera set: 1) ...
  • My local dealer just had a Photo Expo, and I finally had the opportunity to fondle and shoot with the GM5. To me, this is a brilliantly designed take-everywhere IL camera, and I will definitely ...
  • Hmmm. $75 for a really nice RRS bag to carry your $1340 tripod sounds reasonable. The RRS bag has a sort of boot built into the bag to better protect the head, and seems really well designed for ...
  • Howdy, Glad to be of help. The same thing happened to me when I first got my E-M5ii. -- -Dennis W. Austin, Texas http://www.pbase.com/3dwag/image/97156660.jpg
  • Assuming that you have the mode dial (top left of the viewfinder set to video mode, then you probably have the camera on the "My Clips" setting (on display screen - Live Control settings). See page ...
  • Agree with your formatting comment, however the most likely cause is that the OP's "several years" old reader is not compatible with the 64GB SDXC card.
  • Just be careful with your evolved pinkie, or you'll poke your eye out!
  • Hello, For best comparison, may I suggest that you lock your camera down on a sturdy tripod and use manual focus (magnify)? Even handheld against your face (using viewfinder) may be better than a ...
  • Looking forward to your review - I'm considering to replace my sometimes-too-short Gitzo GT3530S (Systematic) tripod with the RRS TVC-24L. Cheers, -Dennis.
  • I second those Nite-Ize locking S-biners! They are one of the more clever little devices I've come across in a long time. Also highly recommend the PacSafe V18 sling. It will easily hold your ...
