I have two possibly related questions. My photos of people / portraits are always sharp -- I always go on Aperture priority mode and select the smallest f-stop and get nice photos. I always find my landscape or general street photos lacking in sharpness or quality. To be honest I never know around what f-stop to use, I usually use something around 8 and 11. Are there any tips for getting sharper photos? I always have AF points set to be automatic, except for when I'm taking a portrait, in...

Hi, As the title says, i'm trying to use my old flashes on my a7ii. These are a sunpack auto 200 and a kisanon (180 t?). Both work perfectly on my Olympus e420 dslr. So why won't they work on my camera? Is this a trigger voltage issue? A camera issue? Do i need an adapter? And as people usually don't have 30+ years old flashes on 2015 cameras, i haven't found much info on this issue. Thanks in advance,

Hello,Last weekend i filmed my kids while sailing in strong wind wth my omd and the 45 mm. The result was good, but i need more reach.I have no idea what aperture is used (movie dial, on P setting). Also no idea what the result would be with slower lens. From my e420 with the 40-150, i know that for pictures this lens is to slow at 5.6 and pictures lack som dynamic effect when shooting at the long end.The main purpose is video analysis for technical taining and race tactics. When images come...

Hi gurus and enthusiasts, I have used Olympus E-420 + 14-54 II for quite a long time. The time has come to look for a next body/lens, not necessarily Olympus. The E-420 is far too noisy and the resolution can be better as well. The 14-54 II, however, is a very solid lens that I am really happy with. I am looking for some guidance here, considering the following: 1) size matters. New body shall not be larger than E-420. 2) price matters. New stuff shall not be more expensive than say $1000. 3)...

Hello, I am thinking of building a camera trap based on an E420. Is here someone who knows to modify an oly remote shutter cable? A cheap third party solution is even better of course. Can i assume that the built in IR receiver is unusable? Any usefull info is welcome. Steven

My kid (6th grader) is interested in learning photography. I have E 420 and GF2 lying around (almost never used), and plan to get prime lens for whichever one we decide. Issue is I am not sure which is better. The purpose is to shoot nature, and some portraits.  Suggestion is much appreciated.

My dad has finally settled on the M43 system after looking about now he is not sure which one. have been looking at the Oly PEN E-P5 and Oly OM-D E-M10. I do have a Oly VF-3 he can have as TBH i have never really used it. I think he would like to have a Oly if the camera doesn't have a electronic viewfinder so he can use my VF-3 but if a Panasonic is better then i think he may give it up. reason why he likes Oly is he has a Olympus E-420. He likes landscape photography,nature, the odd...

My dad wants to move from his Olympus E420 kit to CSC was going to have a look at Oly OM-D E-M10 when its out and only buy 1 or 2 specific lenses as he will be able to use mine if he needs them. so all was good tho he really wanted the OM-D E-M1 but is out of reach price wise. then whilst looking about he saw the Fuji XE 1 with 18-55 f2.8 and 50-230 lens all for £699. really he is not sure what to do now and has asked me for some help but im sorta leaning towards the Fuji but wont say that....
