  • Nice collection!  Can you eat them?:-D tom
  • Beautiful shots and technique.  I am still trying to find out how to use the EM1.1, that being all I can justify spending at present, and your examples give me something to aim at tom
  • Created discussion thread A few more windsurfing shots
    EM1.1 and 14-150....not a bad reasonably priced rig for shooting in the spray from a rubber boat.  I don't know how much better results I would get from 40-150 /2.8 but it would certainly be less ...
  • Ha Ha, good one. :-D (but I would be pretty proud if I could windsurf like that)
  • A bit more info. The event was the Hong Kong Windsurfing Champs. in Tai Tam Bay, Stanley. This guy was racing in the Open Raceboard Division, which he won easily. He was able to keep the board ...
  • Created discussion thread Pride comes before a fall?
    Heavily cropped, but fun! Wow! Eeeaah! tom
  • Replied in Except...
    There is little point in opening a comparison of Nikon 1inch and M4/3 on this forum.  We all know that the arguments which are used to demonstrate that 4/3 is as effective as FF do not work when ...
  • So they don't have to buy it if they don't like it or don't want to spend the money.  There are plenty of options.  What is your point? tom
  • Created discussion thread G9..so now we know
    There were people talking about Panasonic leaving the stills market.  I hope you feel embarrassed about your threads. (There is one well known Australian who has recognised his mistake and been ...
  • Replied in Why not?
    I agree completely.  As an example, The 14-140ii suffers from much worse shutter shock on my EM1.1 than on my GX8 (unless e shutter is used, when neither have a problem)  And I use all the tricks ...
  • Replied in Why not?
    People who have the GX8, including me, absolutely love it (I note you don't) All cameras can be said to have unique deficiencies, and the GX8 is not perfect, but better than most. There has been a ...
  • Shutter shock is one of several sticks used by some people who don't like the GX8 to knock it. I have a GX8 and an EM1.1 and shutter shock on the EM1, even in its anti shock mode, is just as bad or ...
  • Many thanks for your tips.  I can certainly use all the help that I can get, and guess a lot of it is just practice. Actually I am shooting sailing races, where not only are the boats moving (very ...
  • That's a fabulous series.  I am struggling to get to grips with my new EM1.1 and would really appreciate it if you could share as much as possible about your technique and set up.  There just ...
  • Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't want to use LR CC.  I want to keep the images on the IPad rather than in the cloud, and I don't get on with LR filing (I use it as a great editor, but file ...
  • Created discussion thread Best manager/editor for iPad
    Please excuse me asking this basic question, but the experience of you guys is worth so much more than reviews (which often fail to include practical usage information)  I have been struggling for ...
  • Replied in WR lens mounts
    Apparently the mounts are not identical, which is a surprise.  Several people have measured them with accurate calipers and there is a difference of a millimeter or so. So much for standards! tom
  • Replied in WR lens mounts
    The posters on the other forum suggested that it was the Panasonic lenses on Olympus bodies which suffered O ring damage (because the  ring overlapped the screw area)  It was also suggested that ...
  • Created discussion thread WR lens mounts
    There is a thread I came across on another forum, concerning the water resistant gaskets of Panasonic lenses on Olympus bodies and vice versa. Apparently there is a small difference in flange size ...
  • It's a highly video centric review, which is certainly their prerogative to choose. However, as someone who is struggling with the difficulties of getting effective continuous/tracking AF with ...
