  • Thanks, Joe, for putting that all together. I had read some of it but didn't realise the full extent. One item yet to re-find was about the distribution of Koran and associated texts by the Saudis, ...
  • Replied in Confused....
    Did I get this right? Trump dislikes Muslims and would like to ban them from entering USA, but then transacts a massive arms deal to a country made up of the possibly most fundamentalist Muslim ...
  • They have exactly the same operation, just that the polarisation method is different. A bit of explanation and a method to test for each type here ...
  • In my case E-P5 #1 failed when fairly new and on a holiday, went back to E-PL1 button pressing mode and survived. Fixed when home again under warranty and no further issues. With E-P5 #2 no ...
  • Replied in Cult behaviour
    Yep, just one of the familiar names, but he is seen as a prophet and definitely not the son of any god. In fact that's the crunch point - whereas christianity adopted a committee compromise ...
  • Funny, same with me. I bought two of the little beasties so surely at least one could soldier on for a few years. Shown with my two most used lenses, usually only carry one body at a time. Now also ...
  • Replied in Cult behaviour
    We have already. How do you think we come up with this stuff? Anyhoo, there's a vast majority of Muslims who like to lead peaceful lives side-by-side with whatever religion (or none) that is there. ...
  • Replied in Cult behaviour
    Yup, it's cult religion basically all about convert or kill or pay tribute. But the pay tribute bit seems to have faded away.
  • The only reason for Circular Polarisers to exist is because of the clumsy way using half silvered mirrors that DSLR & film SLR cameras have organised their Auto Focus. The linear polarisers ...
  • With occasional illegal activity http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-11-12/opium-poppy-thefts-increase-in-tasmania/8019938
  • Replied in Basics
    That link 'About Us' page has a sentence that sums it up..... Rather than make the West a "safe space" for Islam, we should be challenging Muslims to make Islam safe for the world. Until then, it ...
  • That Lens IS Priority thing in ONLY for the unswitched Panasonic OIS lenses, if a Panasonic switched OIS lens then that switch overrides everything. On means lens OIS, off means IBIS, the Lens IS ...
  • On the poppy front, many years ago (maybe 30 yrs or more) I took a holiday in Tasmania (that lump off the bottom of Australia) and was amazed by the endless fields of opium poppies all over the ...
  • Replied in Art of the deal
    Yep, that's a fun read - http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/07/25/donald-trumps-ghostwriter-tells-all
  • No such setting, the IBIS can be on (in various modes) or off. Yes. Again, all stabilisation behaviour is body dependent. The Lens IS Priority menu item is ONLY for Panasonic unswitched OIS lenses, ...
  • Replied in Maybe...
    Malaysia, probably in Kuala Lumpur, somewhere north about 8h 43m flight time away from Sydney. Actually he is in the top half of the world, KL = 3.1390° N, 101.6869° E No way, then I'd have to be ...
  • Replied in Maybe...
    Maybe I should sell all my Oly gear, delete all my pages and then buy Sony and see what happens.
  • Replied in How come...
    How come I get blamed for everything that happens to you! :-) Just be careful of exploring menus, you might get into the non-stoppable auto self destruct sequence. If it starts counting down from ...
  • OK, blame me again! :-) I bought two with the eventual aim of making a Frankenstein rig to hold both near the lens front for macro. Yet to happen. Set one up for RC mode group A and the other for B ...
  • Various bodies do various things, my timeline helps sort that out a bit http://homepages.ihug.com.au/~parsog/olyepl1/80-Oly-timeline.html Some have the full Sync-IS experience, some just revert to ...
