  • Replied in Three baterries?
    You must go really far into the forest to shoot that wildlife!  I just put and extra battery or two into my pockets.  Can only see any real point in an attached grip it the extra power on board ...
  • Yes.  And if they are absolutely boring grey images of water, you can charge a million for them!
  • That is exactly the problem: that you are very far from alone!  I find the EM1ii to be n impressive camera in sheer basic power, but endlessly cluttered with "features" that I neither want or need ...
  • A camera is a tool, and time and again, I've found it better to use the simpler tool to do the job.  Less chance of missing a good shot, and in good light, the IQ difference is minimal, and the ...
  • Replied in yes...th 60fps
    Thought this was mainly a "ghee-whiz" sales feature, but when I reviewed some of my BIF pics, it really blew me away.  Opens whole new realms...likely for dogs (forget the cats 8-)  and kids in ...
  • Replied in G9 vs EM1-II ?
    Yes, but while I largely agree, I have to say. However, especthat if you are doing much video, at least longer videos, the unlimited-length, single-file videos from Panasonic are much easier to ...
  • I took one long look at the G9, and tried operating it a bit, and simply found it too large and "Plasticky" compared to the EM1ii. Also, I have a G85, which seems to be a fine camera, but which I ...
  • Replied in 75f1.8
    It's a wonderful lens, but - just to complicate your life further - at 150mm FF equivalent, at the threshold of the longer focal - lengths where in lens OIS starts to be more effective than ...
  • Be that as it may, I simply find the 12-40 range too limiting, and think that the pupularity of both the Panaleica and the Pana version of the 12-60 speak for themselves.  And while it certainly ...
  • Unless this is a uniquely fast, break-all-records, sports camera, the size and weight will really be a deal-breakers for mFT's users.
  • That is and interesting idea...as a limited production, specialty lens.
  • Unfortunately, Olympus has a brilliant record of Innovation, AND a terrible record of missing the boat on implementing that innovation effectively, and quite frankly, "shooting themselves in the ...
  • You've summarized the situation very well!
  • Replied in Images of EM1x
    Strange beast, and not exactly pretty.  From some angles it looks like the bottom battery/vertical grip is removable, from others definitely not.  Decisive factor for me. I went to Olympus in 1973 ...
  • Replied in G9/G80 B&W RAW
    What does that actually mean, in terms if what the Bayer sensor is capturing as raw image data and the delivering?  I'm not sure that I have it right, but I thought that the image data "comes in" ...
  • That seems to be more or less what happened to me.  Sorry about your misfortune, but it makes me feel better, knowing that Murphy's Law applies universally. The stuff I shoot never has a ...
  • I suppose that Olympus has it on a chart somewhere, but I get very tired of meaningless marketspeak.  And big, heavy, hugely expensive lenses.
  • Sounds all too familiar! Been there, done that! Really, the main reason to use several cameras is to ensure that there is *some* usable footage throughout each whole piece of music, which is ...
  • Created discussion thread Pen FV video is pretty good!
    The Pen Fv is occasionally referred to hear, but its video capabilities are seldom referred to.   Seems to be seldom used for video because of the stupid omission of any way to connect an external ...
  • You may be right, but are probably unaware that Europe has much stronger consumer- protection laws than the US, or at least did when we lived there.
