  • Replied in G9 SH2 PRE
    Thought you'd like that feature. When I was photographing dolphins, it took a bit of time for it to sink in that the number of empty pan shots before the dolphin was the pre burst doing its stuff ...
  • I'd like to enter it, but there's just one problem....my best images are shot with the G9, but the Oly pro 40-150. Do you think they'd notice?
  • And my problem was that I had to have the best lenses to go with it...so I bought the two Oly Pros, 40-150 and 12-100. Works a treat with those two, no problems at all with the lack of DFD.
  • Well I haven't got a clue what you lot are on about, but I do know that my G9 takes great pictures at iso 100 :-)
  • Replied in More from Mull
    I don't know if you've heard, but there's a strong possibility that a pod of bottlenose dolphins has taken up residence off the Northumbrian coast. Some normally visit in the summer from the Moray ...
  • Replied in More from Mull
    That looks nice as well! It's good that they do it by the night. I take the view that as I go on my own on wildlife 'safaris' unfortunately (or maybe not!), Argyle House is so cheap for the studios ...
  • Replied in More from Mull
    It's not that bad for you though, you're soon on the M6, it's 3 hours for me from Derbyshire to Penrith (including compulsory stop at Mainsgill Farm Shop Cafe:-)). I always go via the M80 from the ...
  • Created discussion thread OKI compatible toner cartridges
    I've been using Agfa Photo toner cartridges in my 9655 with excellent results for greeting cards and prints, but the price has just doubled (no doubt partly due to b----y Brexit) to not far off ...
  • Do you really want 4K/6K? Using pre burst and a very fast card you can have RAW and full size jpg, plus the 0.4 sec of the pre burst is more useful than it sounds for rapidly moving subjects.
  • Replied in More from Mull
    Mull is a wonderful island, especially when the sun shines, and May is a great time to visit. After initial 2 wet days at the end of May I had 4 days of glorious sunshine, and 6 individual otters, ...
  • I'm really jealous of your puffin shots Stuart!! When I went to the Farnes last year with the G80 and the 100-400, I didn't get one sharp close up in flight puffin shot :-(
  • Use a tripod, and of course go through the apertures for each lens. A garden with foliage and flowers maybe, plus a seat or something angular in the scene. If you have a furry toy to put somewhere ...
  • Change your insurance company then.
  • I think you need to check that - MH Direct, whoever they are (their business address is in a very salubrious part of Derbyshire - Repton School ring any bells?) have them now, and the rebate of ...
  • Where did you order it from Trevor?
  • Just been using the combo for dolphins breaching (jumping), and 2 weeks ago bifs from a moving boat. No focus issues whatsoever, but I'm still unsure about the TC14 (a bit soft possibly even at ...
  • Hi Trevor Don't know how to post the direct link, but here PART 4** This Week Through your m4/3 2018.06.30  and I think the week before or after I have two G9 shots (not pre focus), but I'll post a ...
  • Right then Trevor. I've just come back from 4 days up at Chanonry Point (again!) photographing the dolphins, this time using the 30 fps Raw pre burst a lot of the time. It's superb, I've a shot at ...
  • I went at the end of May - loved it. A different league to the Farnes, so clean, fewer people and beautiful wild flowers. Incidentally, a local paper I read recently had a letter complaining about ...
  • I've both of those, and the Oly f2.8 is the sharpest lens (very good contrast) I think I've come across, the Pana 12-35 is ok, but not as good as the Oly. So how does the 12-100 compare? I tried ...
