  • Both filters can rotate freely 180°. But the inner CPL normally needs to be rotated more than the outer ND, as the ND will normally be leveled along the horizon, or being just slightly skew to ...

  • The longer the FL, the more filter rotation it takes before vignetting occurs. I have no exact measurements, but at 7 mm I guess vignetting starts at some15>20°, depending of which filter in the ...
  • OK, thank you! :) I missed that one...
  • Thx a lot! :) Ah - I see. Well well, can't win them all. It's about a UWA not built for filter use after all... ;)
  • Is there any way to see the winners somewhere? I can't see that they are showcased anywhere on contest's website... https://gopc.olympus-global.com/2016/
  • In my experience, the stacked and rotating Shapeways/LEE filter holder combo does not vignette on the Zuiko 7-14/2.8 PRO until zoomed to some 8>8.5 mm, regardless of filter rotation. More specs ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Mordor
    Night in Mordor - or on planet Mars - or is it actually Tellus, our earth? Minerals, sulphur and diverse volcanic depositions makes out for this strange world on the eastern slopes of Námafjall, northern Iceland. Note the low stroke of smoke from the ground to the right, on the other side of the cleft. Here seen in a midnight view at 01:20 AM.

    Hvitserkur means "White shirt", which allegedly origins from the fact that the other side of the rock is far more white, due to guano dropped from numerous nesting seabirds on the side facing the fjord. It was probably used as a landmark for naval navigation on Húnafjörður in the old days, and hence the name was chosen because it looks white when seen from a boat out at sea. It stands on a shallow sand bank, which becomes partially dry at low tide - as seen here.

    A small bird, probably a Wagtail, found its way into the abandoned house (maybe through broken glass somewhere), but it couldn't find a way back out. So it ended its life there, helplessly pecking on the window, looking out towards freedom, towards light, towards life.

  • Pro Capture cannot be done w/ native 4/3 lenses, because the data protocols and transfer with the camera body is not supported physically in the 4/3 mount (9-pins as opposed to 11-pins in m4/3)....

  • The SHGs still deliver, although I have now also buildt up a m43 PRO lineup. But the 90-250/2.8 SHG is still hard to beat! As is the 2.0 zooms :)
    Long live Oly!

  • Submitted a challenge entry El Dorado
    The land of gold... Tiny glittering ice crystals form out of thin air, drizzling slowly to the ground, as -19°C takes its toll in a frosty winter morning. Looks almost like sepia/monochrome, but this is actually in full color, just as out of the camera! I'll dedicate this to my late father, as it's taken on his birthday. He would have been 93 that day, had he still been alive. He's the one that taught me to love nature, the soul of the woodlands, the sound of silence - . But maybe he's still in there, somewhere into the shimmering light itself... :)

  • It does! As I say in my first post above: "I have the Shapeways filter holder Kit II for this lens (for 100mm Lee filters), and that adapter doesn't vignette at all. Even w/ a square CPL tilted 45° ...

    It was hard times, and they struggled for their everyday outcome. Here some remnants from a culture long gone, abandoned by everyone, forgotten by all... The agriculture was small scale, and so was the equipment, and half a boat was used for making their barn! Here from somewhere along the Varangerfjord coastline between the towns Vadsø and Vardø, in Finnmark county, NE Norway.

  • With the Kit II, both filters will rotate the same (sitting in the fixed 2 slots), but using 2 filters will not add any more vignetting, as that stems from the Kit II slotholder itself. So using a ...
