Hi Next July (2015) my wife and I are going on an Un-Cruise small boat cruise of the Alaskan "Inside Passage" (http://www.un-cruise.com/alaska-ultimate-bays-fjords-2015) as well as going to Brooks Falls in Katmai NP to see the grizzly bears. I have read various opinions as to whether a tripod is useful on boat cruises. The Un-Cruise cruise will have only 76 passegers and the boat is not too big so will (presumably) move around a bit more than the big cruise liners. A lot of the trip is...

Hi folks, I currently have an E-410, but it hasn't had much use since I got it about 5 years ago (It's got less than 1500 on the shutter count), not sure why but somehow I could never get excited about it. My original 35mm gear was all OM stuff - OM1, OM4ti, etc and I have still got all that lovely glass. Long story short - the new OM-D E-M10 caught my eye and I have been wondering about buying one. Obviously my two 4/3 lenses won't work without an adaptor, and digital lenses seem so very...

I just got the E-M1 as my first "real" camera.  I'm trying to connect it to my Nexus 5. I am able to link them via a private connection. The problem is the camera still displays the QR code even after I connect.  Is there a way to use the camera normally while still having the phone connected or is it a one or the other sort of thing?

Hello all. I posted this in another forum but I realized it belongs here. I decided to rent the Nikon 24mm f1.4G and the 35mm f1.4G to see which I would prefer for a wide to semi wide prime to use on my D800E. Deciding which one I want more is another discussion in itself (honestly I like them both for their merits). Anyway, for the price of either of these I could invest in a second smaller body, like the Fuji X-T1 with a somewhat equivalent field of view lens. It would cost more to go this...

I primarily take photos for a nonprofit whose work focuses on giving direct aid to under-served people in all types of urban environments. After seeing some of the great images you all are taking with some of these modern bodies I'm finally looking to upgrade from my Nikon D50 to the wild and woolly world of The Mirrorless. I'm searching for a camera and lens combo that's flexible enough to be used in challenging light situations that will achieve a quick focus and a minimal 'Snap!' sound so...

Hello, I'm switching from an E-PL5 to a MFT camera with a viewfinder (because E-PL5 + additional viewfinder roughly equals the price of an E-M10, which has nice additional features), and I'm strongly hesitating between the E-M10 and the E-M1. The former has a nicer price, but the latter has an EVF with a better definition (2.44 MP vs 1.40 I believe), and no review exactly help me to tell them apart on this point, as both are pointed as having good EVFs (notably thanks to brightness...

My Alaska trip is around the corner. I'm so thrilled for my husband to see what all the hype is about. I loved Alaska 2 years ago. We are going on a cruise from Vancouver to Seward (stops in Juneau, Ketchikan, Icy Straight Point, and Skagway) - then onto Denali and Fairbanks at the end.If you have been to Alaska (and/or photograph nature and wildlife), please weigh in on my equipment decisions. Tell me if this makes sense or what I am missing. I am normally a portrait photographer - nature...

Hi All, I am a newbie looking to upgrade from my Panasonic LX5 PnS. I am looking at the Olympus OM-D E-M10, and saw the kit with M.Zuiko 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 II R lens I believe.  While doing my research, discovered. this EZ lens which appears to be almost identical in spec, but much compact format.   What are the real differences in quality and capabilities between these 2 lenses? Thanks in advance for your help and advice. -- ThanksDave

The preview button on the front of my E-M1 camera body does not let me see the depth of field of the current aperture setting. Instead it shows the focus array and the depth of field is always shown for the maximum aperture of the attached lens whether the button is pressed or not. I can't find a setting in the menu system that would allow me to customize this button in the first place, so I have no idea how I lost this default functionality (showing depth of field) or how to restore it. So,...

Can someone tell me which Panasonic lenses I can use without losing any functionality on my Olympus OMD EM1. I currently use 75mm, 17mm and would like to increase my lenses but find Olympus glass very price restrictive.
