  • Your question does make sense, but no, although I've tried Bluetooth in the past, I have to eschew (deliberately avoid) it in such undirectable and unrepeatable situations. It  can offer control ...
  • Good idea, although I try to avoid stressing equipment. And yes, it was 60fps 4K if memory serves. Probably I should have stuck the 1080p 60fps that was the max for the Atem Mini Pro ISO Video ...
  • Thank you for your reply. It is appreciated. But there comes a point (after having to send back an EM 1ii for repair twice, then replacement, being told of an extended warranty option for this OM1 ...
  • Created discussion thread OM-1 lockup/bricking taking video
    My OM-1 mounted on a high tripod with its USB charger plugged in locked up after onlyu 12 minutes of taking 4K video.   It was a front corner of the packed venue so it was very awkward to get at, ...
  • 2 I guess, though 3 if it happens again! It locked up after 12 minutes and 18 seconds of taking 4K video of my pianist wife's concert with a cellist.  It was mounted on a high tripod with its USB ...
  • After long waiting for the price to drop a little, I traded in my OM4TI, OM2 and an E620 and a few lenses as well as my EM1ii to finally come up with the $2,800CAD to buy one. last October.  (Too ...
  • We all have our own shooting styles and favourite subjects.  I really enjoyed shooting with the FT's 50f2 macro and simply find the 60 f2.8 too fiddly, especially shooting outdoors, where it's ...
  • I  do, too.  Of course a large part of my problem is that I don't regularly do macro photography, but this would certainly make its use simpler and quicker for me.
  • Created user review thread High IQ BUT Awkward to use
    I find that almost anytime I use this lens, it is usually set to the wrong focus-range, and quite awkward to change.  Like its image quality, but capturing the image comes first.
  • Created user review thread A triumph and a tragedy
    See my video of the Edmonton, Canada release, EM-1X release . This Olympus model is rugged, well-sealed, with ergonomic controls and finally, *almost* competitive AF. BUT also larger and heavier ...
  • Created user review thread Old reliable
    Bought this to use UW (scuba diving) because it and its UW housing together we're cheaper the a housing for my Nikon F80 and soon started using it for everything.  My introduction to digital. ...
  • I remember running into that, too, but think there's a way around it.  One solution might be to call OM-systems support.  I was pleasantly surprised by the quick and very helpful response when I did.
  • If her interest is in still photography, then the FT E620 which is selling for next to nothing,  often with the two kit lenses would be a marvellous choice, with its lit-up buttons for dim -light ...
  • Excuse the late reply to your very informative and detailed post. Am finally sending of this reply after pondering your many interesting points for days. Thank you for the lead. I must have missed ...
  • Again, the detailed and informative reply is really appreciated. Although I have dummy batteries for then EM1iii (and the EM1ii which I've sold) I don't like using them much, course, half a ...
  • Thank you for yet again chiming is with concise  technical information.  Does "external HDMI mean that I cannot power the EM1iii or the EM 1x camera when I connect them to the Atem Mini Pro ISOn ...
  • Already had an EM1ii and iii, I long .held off buying the OM-1.  Finally , traded in the ii (and much else) toward on in a streaming deal.  MUCH better than expected for the BIF - Sandhill Cranes ...
  • I'm is a somewhat similar situation of having to use Adobe's DNG converter so that I can import images to LR 6.  Two versions, actually, because I prefer to work on my  Mac, and LR 6  will not run ...
  • While there are downsides to the EU usb stipulation, I, like many people I know in IT roles, applaud the EU for fining Apple for its strategy of forcing users to conform to its endless cycles of ...
  • Your time and trouble finally replying are really appreciated. They encouraged me to again go to pages 61 and 208-10 of the reference manual and repeatedly go through the steps from both the Super ...
