  • All-intra means that every single image is compressed and stored, opposite from inter frames which only store the deltas /whatever has changed since your last full image). See: https://en.wikipedia ...
  • Congrats on an awesome camera - says an owner of the first gen E-M10 (but also with grip). And yes, I agree with the other commenters - you give very good advice for a first time user. Keep it on, ...
  • There used to be an Olympus "visionary" from Finland, Pekka Potka, who did it with a E-M5 (Mk1). Just bought what is called a "dia duplicator", basically some tube with a film holder in front of ...

    Good job! Oh, and I still like my Mk1 E-M10. No reason to upgrade as well. Cheers, Wolfgang -- using free and open source software, and an open camera system http://wolfgang.lonien.de/ (private blog) ...
  • Replied in agreed
    There's a lot smoke & obfuscation going on in the scene, or what you call BS. Maybe the pros see it as a declining market - which it is in some regard if you don't "adapt" (i.e. offer video and so ...
  • Yup - that's what I wanted to say (or write). He does have some good advice, so it may be worthwhile to watch. Maybe I've attended too many of these "workshops" for a while, so by now it's always ...
  • Hi again, I don't want to be (or sound) negative, and I'm in the middle of the second one-hour video. So to make it clear: Jason has some good points, and lots of people could learn quite a bit ...

    Another vote for a prime here. Instead of even more "overlapping" zoom lenses, that would be very useful indoors, and it will also help learning to see. About the focal length: take one of your ...
  • Replied in agreed
    I agree with Sean: the 12-40mm may just be what you'd like. But: for µ43rds it's quite bulky, and on the intended E-PL7 it could be a bit front-heavy. Consider an E-M10 (version 1 is cheap right ...
  • Well my wife's 20mm was the reason for me to get into µ43rds. Now I have the 25mm/1.4, but I still love my wife's lens. Tho the next time she'll take videos of our daughter, we probably swap - she ...
  • ... lots of cliché. Just my 2 (€) Cents ... I've seen a video where he was wis his late brother, and I like the guy and feel for his loss. But to be honest, what he shows here in the first few ...
  • Well I use an almost similar kit... what I usually carry is: (1) OM-D E-M10 (version 1) with additional grip (2) E-PL5 with VF-2 viewfinder
  • Nice ones, and the format fits perfectly I'd say.
  • Well I can't say if sports would be good or easy with the EM-5.2, as I don't have it. But instead of using high ISO I would always prefer a 50$ strobe bounced off somewhere... Cheers, Wolfgang

    As always, it depends... ... if with portraits you mean full-body shots of adults, you have more control over depth of field with full frame and something like a Canon 135mm/f2 (or similar from ...
  • Hehe nice one. If you haven't seen any lately, you probably missed mine: here and here .
  • I only have a 14-42mm "kit lens", which at 42mm (and fully open at f/5.6) looks like this Zuleikha, December 2016 If you look at the background, that is not fully blurred of course - can't do that ...
