  • That is very bad luck.  I hope you can find a solution and that the kids enjoy their bread and water! Panasonic get a very bad press for their repair policy, and in my view they deserve it. ...
  • There are fan boys from both makes on this forum who would have you believe that their choice is best.  I have noticed that in recent months the Panasonic gang has been particularly vocal and one ...
  • Nice birds! I agree that you should be able to do better, both these and the close up shot are not sharp enough. Birds are a pretty tough target, as the feathers seem purpose made to show our ...
  • That sounds very similar to how I am doing it.  I am doing mounted slides (which are pretty flat) at present and will start on negatives soon, so am not yet using a clear glass strip over the ...
  • Thank you for showing a picture of your copying rig.  I am very envious!  I went down the ES1 equivalent route for a while but decided it was not going to work for me.  I am making do with a ...
  • Sorry, I thought this thread had gone dormant and missed your reply.  The Dimage iii AF2840 has a USB connection.  I have the original disks which work fine on W10, but the driver does not.  I ...
  • Thanks for the help.  After having tried a number of approaches, including using my Minolta scanner, I am now getting some reasonable results with reverse mounting my small EM10 on a tripod, and ...
  • The Minolta scanner I have been using is the DImage iii, AF2840 which I suspect is very similar to yours. I have been stuck indoors for the last two days by incessant rainstorms, so have bee trying ...
  • Check out the available lenses against your needs as the first step in your decision. There are good comparisons at mirrorlesscomparisons.com which may help if you are uncertain after you have ...
  • Wonderful shots.. You are lucky to see it tom
  • Thank you for your reply, the info and the link.  If it stops raining tomorrow I will go to see if I can find the extension tubes and some filter adaptors. I don't have either the 30 or 60 macro. ...
  • Created discussion thread Slide (and negative) copying
    I have been using the bad weather and Covid restrictions to catch up with lots of stuff I should have done years ago.  One is getting my old slides and negatives digitised before they disappear ...
  • Hi I guess the fundamental problem for me is that you have got two strong leading lines from the top and bottom left corners (and they could probably be stronger it you got the bottom line nearer ...
  • I agree about it being soft on the right, my other (repaired) one is soft on the left! tom
  • These are JPEG conversions from LR RAW shots with no processing.  They look pretty horrible in the raw state but I guess they are more useful to you that way. The JPEGS would look better! I did ...
  • Adam If the weather is good tomorrow I can take some shots for you, if I have the lenses. What would you like to compare, at what FL and aperture?  (Can't promise, it has been p******g with rain ...
  • Replied in Oly 14-150
    I have been a very keen user of the 14-150 ii as there is no other lens which hits the sweet spot for me in the same way for my sailing shots where I get really wet and cannot change lenses. Don is ...
  • Thank you, that is helpful.  In case anyone is still confused, EM1ii menu Cog C2 deals with stability.  The bottom item is Lens Priority, and I think that with a Panasonic lens with OIS this ...
  • Thanks for the tip.  I did not know that I could get OIS/IBIS to toggle with just the lens switch.  I will experiment today, it would be much simpler than struggling to find the menu or SCP item ...
  • Created discussion thread Lightroom input folder
    Can someone tell me how to make the default Lightroom input folder something other than the card reader?  I read and cull my cards using FPV and output the images for editing to a folder I have ...
