  • Replied in OV3
    I used Olympus Viewer 3 a little bit. I agree with Robin Wong when he says it is the best software to make the most out of orf files. However, on my last computer, it was way too slow for me to be ...
  • Today's technology standards seems to be FF or MF. So all m43 shooters -who are not consistent with that- are not good photographers ? Shouldn't a good photographer simply take good pictures ? And ...
  • So according to you, these noisy unsharp pictures are not nice: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raising_the_Flag_on_Iwo_Jima https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=cartier+bresson&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa= ...
  • Yes, it was your sentence that motivated me to post. You also commented on your own that you are probably not using all the potential of your G3. In body-stabilization will only help you if the ...
  • Most of the time, when consumers buy a new camera to get better pictures, they are just falling into the marketing trap. Nice pictures are a combination of light, subject and composition. The ...
  • I did not hear any rumors about an update. I own this lens as well as the 45 f1.8 and 14 f2.5. I shoot most of my pictures with the 25 (including children). WIth the 45 f1.8 you will have to be a ...
  • Replied in Try them ?
    You said you want to switch because you "think" you prefer a rangefinder. You won't get much more performance with those cameras than with the em10-II, so I suggest that before you make a costly ...
  • Replied in 210mm ?
    By too long, I meant that maybe it could have been easier to be closer and have a shorter focal length but you couldn't because you were already at the minimum focus distance of your lens. Having ...
  • Replied in 210mm ?
    Thanks, that is the answer I was looking for.
  • Replied in 210mm ?
    Hum, I thought the minimum focusing distance was the same on all the range with the 40-150mm pro, and also did not change with the TC on. That would mean that you would indeed have the max ...
  • Replied in 210mm ?
    I've been contemplating buying the 60mm f2.8 macro for a while, and insects would be an interesting subject for me. I'm puzzled by your shots (very nice ones btw) as 210mm seems a very long focal ...
  • I am not going to detail my bonds with the couple here. In any case, I am always happy to help, and it makes me sometimes much happier than just enjoying even if I know that I will get absolutely ...
  • Replied in 40-150
    I used that one when I was just a guest and it was indeed very handy. But this time, I will try to dare moving freely and I think the 45f1.8 should be enough. Do think the longer range will be ...
  • Replied in Equipment
    As a prime shooter, I indeed prefer to simplify things and shoot with one camera + one body. I just feel better this way. The last years, the em10 + 25f1.4 has taken 80% of my pictures. What I will ...
  • That is your opinion. Obviously a lot of people don't care so much about pixels in dark areas. Yes a wedding is a one time event, but so is every second that passes in your life. What should you ...
  • Replied in Thanks everyone
    Thanks everyone for the help. There seems to be an agreement on these two facts : - Tripod is not necessary for group shots. - Flash in the church is tricky. - Coordination between people will be ...
  • Replied in Some precision
    Hum, I never tried that. What software are you using for such edits ?
  • Replied in Some precision
    Thanks for the answers. Some precision: the couples knows my (little) experience but they also know what kind of pictures I can produce (also during weddings) and obviously would be satisfied with ...
  • Created discussion thread My first wedding
    I will be shooting a wedding in the horrible position of guest/photographer. Given the circumstances, I couldn't say no, although I would always recommend to take a pro (that's what I did for my ...
  • Yes, but if the IS has been designed to compensate for hand movements, it could (and did) have bad side effects if it tries to compensate for other kinds of movements.
