  • Created discussion thread Bolt VM-260?
    Has anyone tried the Bolt VM-260 macro flash? Here is the description: http://www.boltflashes.com/strobes-flashes/macro-ringlights/11105-3539 It is about $110 from B&H, which makes it a lot cheaper ...
  • Since I am somewhat interested in the Bolt flash myself, I took a look at the owner's manual. It is definitely not TTL with any camera system. I does have a slave mode, which will trigger the ...
  • A Duck Head plug just might work fine and if I dig through my box of discarded Apple cables and connectors I just might find I already have one. Thanks!
  • I just did the obvious thing and contacted B&H. The sale prices are good to 11/22/17. Of course there could be a better deal for Black Friday, but I think I will take the bird in the hand.
  • I just mount on self-adhesive Gator Board and glue some thin strips of wood on the back for mounting hardware and hang them with no frame or glass. Though paintings usually look better framed, ...
  • I'm figuring once I sell my GX-8 and 12-35/35-100 and use the free air travel ticket, I should be about even financially and have a one lens travel solution with much better image ...
  • Created discussion thread How Long Olympus US Sale Last?
    I see Olympus finally announced a US sale. It looks like I can save $400 on a OM-D E-M1-II + 12-100 combo while the sale is in effect. I looked at both the B&H and Olympus websites but could not ...
  • Created discussion thread Sync IS: E-M1-II vs. Pen F?
    The amazing IS capability of the flagship E-M1-II and the 12-100 Pro is well documented. I wonder how much of a downgrade in Sync IS performance you suffer with the smaller and cheaper Pen-F? I'm ...
  • Users regularly report sharp images at +1 second shutter speeds with the E-M1 Mk2 and the dual IS compatible lenses; I can't get anywhere close to that with the GX-8. As I understand it, you can't ...
  • Thanks for the comments. I had one of the very first of the Olympus EM series m4/3 cameras (EM5, I think) and hated Olympus's menu system. I reading reviews, it looks like Olympus has made some ...
  • Created discussion thread Quick E-M1 Mark2 Question
    I mainly use my camera gear for photography while traveling. Over the past few years I have been satisfied with the quality provided by a Panasonic GX-8 and 12-35 and 35-100 F/2.8 lenses, which ...
  • More choices of parameters (number of images and exposure gap between them) and ability to output final image as Raw or Tiff. Though some HDR images look over processed, done smartly it can do a ...
  • In case anyone else is as careless as I was, I did find a company out in California that can make a board level repair of the broken power socket for about $150, though I will have to eat the ...
  • Created discussion thread iMac--External Display Only?
    The HD in my 2011 27" started making clicking noises and showed other signs of imminent death. I decided to replace it with a solid state drive. I found an online video showing how to disassemble ...
