  • well, I don't need this kind of abuse, so I guess joining this forum was a mistake. I always try to be polite, especially to people who are strangers to me, but I guess not everyone feels the same ...
  • Created discussion thread High Resolution images
    I am a bit puzzled by the high res raw image files produced by my E-M1 Mk II. Not in general terms. I know that the system produces 2 raw images from a series of 8 individual photos taken 1/2 ...
  • Enjoy your trip. Perhaps you can post some photos when you return.
  • It depends. If you are going to be walking around inside the cities (Rome, Florence, Venice, Pisa, Bari, etc) then I would seriously consider something like the 9-18 instead of either of the other ...
  • Yes. I great lens, and the stabilization has made me wonder if I should be saving up for the 300mm. It is very expensive, but it has the same stabilization system as the 12-100, and I do a lot of ...
  • I never thought about using it for file transfer. When I do that (rather than using the cards) I just attach the camera using the usb cable. That will give you much faster transfer speeds (but I ...
  • I came to the E-M1 from Canon and had a lot of trouble figuring out the options. In the end I bought an eBook that explained what each option actually did, what the side effects of each setting ...
  • The only wifi setting on the EM-1.2 that I know of is the one used to connect the camera to an auxiliary device like a phone. I use that for geotagging my photos and I am not aware of any other ...
  • I can well understand backing up the raw images as I do that, backing them up to 3 separate external drives "just in case". But I see no purpose in backing up the sidecar files that I do not care ...
  • I completely agree. Just turn off the sidecar setting as the current adjustments are also stored in the database so you can re-start an editing session without the sidecar files. That also saves me ...
  • The sidecar files can be stored with the original images in some safe backup location and, if you wish to re-edit them, the sidecars will provide the settings you used the last time you edited, ...
  • OV3?  Is that Olympus Viewer 3? Or something else?
  • I have to admit that I do not change the white balance settings on the camera. If that is needed I do that in post. The other settings that I use depend upon what I am shooting. Landscapes are ...
  • Yes. I still have my old Olympus digital camera and the (huge) 256MB xD card that went in it.
  • The card is no longer available in the US from the normal retailers (Adorama, B&H, Amazon) but older copies are still around and being sold at very, very high prices. 3rd party vendors on Amazon ...
  • Created discussion thread sdxc UHS-II card for E-M1.2
    A couple of months ago I bought a Lexar 2000x 64GB UHS-II sdxc card for my E-M1.2 and found that it caused the camera to freeze up and the only way I could use the camera was to remove the battery ...
  • Replied in My take
    Thank you for the link. That was a very interesting article, although it is now a bit dated since it was reviewing CaptureOne version 7 (the current version is 11) and Optics Pro 9 (current ...
  • It has been my practice to turn IBIS off when the camera is  on a tripod and "locked down" so that it can not move, but to leave it on when the camera is not "locked down" and allowed to swivel. ...
  • This photo was taken with the electronic shutter, not the mechanical one, and the ISO is 200. IBIS was turned on, but the camera and lens was mounted on a swivel head that was not tightened down. ...
