  • Thanks for that explanation.  It makes sense - and I think I can use that technique for my orchid photography.  Some orchid flowers are dark but with a clear white center area - if I am not ...
  • Rob's video is where I learned about the spot histogram.  He just doesn't explain how it would be useful.  Maybe if you have a specific area of the image that you want to expose in a certain way ...
  • I am still discovering new features in my Olympus OM-D E-M5 III camera. The latest discovery concerns the histogram displayed in the camera viewfinder when shooting. From the Olympus User Guide: A ...
  • When  I was using my Sony A7RM4 for orchid photography I used the Neewer External Display (connected via HDMI) to see  a larger view of my viewfinder while taking the images.  I used the larger ...
  • I contacted Olympus about this and got a prompt and courteous reply.  The E-M5 III doesn't support viewing the viewfinder on an external screen (connected via HDMI).  the E-M5 II _does_ support ...
  • The Neewer device supports 4K and I have tried both 4K and HD (1080P) and it fails both ways.  Maybe the cable, or there is some incompatibility between the devices.  I am going to see what Neewer ...
  • I found that I can use the oi.share app on my iPhone 12 Pro Max to connect to the camera and see the image - larger than the camera rear display, not as big as the Newer device - but I think this ...
  • Yes there is a menu option for HDMI Control - I turned it on, tried connecting the external monitor, got the same error message.  It's odd because these HDMI settings are pretty standard and the ...
  • Thanks a lot for that link.  I think it will be helpful.  I have managed to puzzle out key settings and have been using the camera (with the 30mm Macro lens) for my orchid photography and it works ...
  • Created question thread HDMI Display Connection (D-M5 III)
    I have been using an external HDMI display with my Sony cameras when doing close-up photos of my orchids.  It is a Neewer display and has worked fine.  When I connect it to my D-M5 III camera ...
  • Thanks!  I took a quick look at the videos and it is just what I need. David
  • Thanks.  That is what I have figured out.  The camera doesn't arrive until tomorrow but I have four and downloaded the user guide and I am reading that.  I also found a book on Amazon due on July ...
  • Created question thread New User OM-D E-M5 III
    I have been shooting Sony cameras for a number of years now (A7RM4, RX100M5 and M7).  I read an interesting article in the latest CameraCraft magazine about Olympus E-M1 bargain deals and B&H had ...
  • Yes, thanks for the response.  I had also asked Nik directly.  I normally use boost in the way Nik recommends - backing off so that other editing controls work better and are not "fighting" the ...
  • Seems to be working for me.  How is it not working? David
  • A great video and a great raw editing application.  I think Raw Power may be unique now in being able to edit these Pro Raw files.  I have found I need to back off the Local Tone Mapping control a ...
