  • I see your point but I think you're setting yourself (and the rest of us) to fail. ALL photographs are fake, in that they are merely images; reflections of reality rather than reality itself. Even ...
  • I think the question itself has problems on two related fronts. Firstly, it is not easy to define what 'real' is, especially when it comes to things like colour. And secondly there is such a ...
  • I think it should be possible to create a Google Form that will record all this data - the downside is that you have to enter it after each shot - no more time consuming than using a notebook, ...
  • I have to admit I'm a bit underwhelmed. I've tried it with various of my photos and while there IS a bit more detail, it seems to have a lot more artefacts. Normally I find it is a toss up with the...

  • Would that be an XD7? Great camera. I know exactly what you mean by slowing down. I went out with the dog and my Olympus OM3 this afternoon only to find out I had just 4 frames left. It really ...
  • Oh yes. I forgot that one. Canoeing down the Ardeche and not sealing the container with my ON-2 (another one) properly! Amazingly, once I'd dried it out and replaced the batteries it was fine.
  • Last weekend I set off for a short trip. Put 2 cameras on the car roof while I put the dog in and... you guessed it, drove off with the cameras on the roof. Luckily for me, I only got 50 yards ...
  • Don't think I can quite compete with 99c but in 2019 A+a camera shop near me was having a clear-out and I picked up a bunch of Olympus OM lenses for only £5 each - 50mm f1.8, 135mm f3.5, 200mm f4 ...
  • Replied in OM-4T
    Quite agree about the OM-4Ti (as it was known outside the US). I've been using mine since 1988 and I still love it. The multi-spot metering is just brilliant. Re the battery issue, I've never had a ...
  • Hi Rick, Thanks for that. But I don't mind the filter effect in the viewfinder, I just want to be able to switch it off from the rear LCD panel. Cheers anyway, Chris
  • Created question thread EM-1 ii display and Art Filters
    Hello Olympus hive mind. I've been shooting with my trusty EM-1 for quite a few years and like to play with the Art Filters from time to time (don't judge me!). At the beginning of the year I got ...
  • I think you perhaps need to consider what you want to do. You say 'wildlife' photos: assuming we're talking about things that move like birds or mammals, a manual lens will certainly give sharp ...
  • Nice shots. Totally agree about the E1. I mainly use an EM1 ii nowadays but still take the old E1 out every few weeks. It feels fantastic in the hand (my hand at least) and I just love the shutter ...
  • You're telling me! I also picked up a 135mm, a 75-150mm, 2x 20mm f1.8 and a 28mm all for £5.00 each in perfect condition! It was just a small 2nd hand camera shop that needed to clear space out and ...
  • I can second that. I was lucky enough to pick one up 18 months ago in perfect condition for just £5! I use it on my EM1 quite regularly, as well as my old OM4Ti
  • Replied in E-1 on Crete
    It does indeed. I still take my E1 out from time to time - I love the ergonomics of it - it seems to fit my hand better than any other camera I've used. Far from my most recent pic with it but I ...
