I took this today. This is just a test shot from the beginning of my shoot. I was shooting in RAW but made a JPEG to see how the photo came out all the way zoomed in. I didn't notice until importing into lightroom but there are some weird artifact lines on her face. These lines are in all the JPEGs I made with in camera raw processing today. The JPEG has zero adjustments in LR only a crop. And actually considering the quality of the light I am not super happy with my raws either, but it they...

I am looking at the gx8 and em5 mark II. Currently I shoot on a gx7 with the evf set to 4:3 I know the gx7 magnification is 0.7x and the em5 mark 2 is 0.74, while the gx8 is 0.77x How big of a difference is this really? I know in 4:3 the gx7 one is smaller than 0.7x  can anyone that understands the sizes and how they relate to eachother tell how much extra surface are there really is between these evfs? It matters to me as I only use manual lenses and while I do fine on my gx7 a bigger evf...

Hello, fellow image-creators: Bought and am now familiarizing myself with the joys of owning a new Olympus OM-D EM-1.  I've watched some YouTube videos so far but wanted to inquire of the forum.  In addition to the book produced by the deities at Mt Olympus, which work between between Darrell Young's Mastering the Olympus OM-D EM-1 and David Busch's Olympus OM-D EM-1 Guide to Digital Photography would you recommend and why? Thanks in advance for your responses!

Has anyone noticed that if set (Gear-*C Release) in the "Normal" position you have no lag time when pressing shutter button. Then if you switch to "Short" there is a delay after pressing the shutter butter. Is there a mistake in all of the manuals and custom setting information out there or is it my camera or am I reading the information wrong? --Frank S Chehhttp://chehartphotography.smugmug.com

Hello all. I've had my eye on the EM1 for a while now and decided to rent one from LensRentals this weekend as there's nowhere in Montana I'm able to try one. So far I'm loving it compared to my old GH1 but there's one glaring issue I cant figure out. I'm looking at the LCD or through the viewfinder and nothing is sharp. Just a soft view of what I'm framing with some razor sharp menu info overlaid.  The camera confirms focus lock then snaps a picture, I hit review to pull up the image and WOW...

I think that it might be interesting to see which gear get used most often in context of what you shoot. Please list your gear (lenses, cameras, extenders, flashes, lights, bags…) ordered by how often you use it. Since many of you use their smartphone as a camera, don’t forget to list it too. (Count only photography related usage.) If you dare, you can also list the computer you use for RAW development and post processing. Since your usage depends on what you shoot, please list by order of...
