About me:

Interested in all nature photography, mainly land- and seascapes as well as macro photography.

I have been a Nikon man, but the weight of all that glass made me choose a lighter camera in the form of the
Panasonic Gx-7 including the 20mm f1.7 kit lens
Panasonic PZ 14-42 Power OIS
Olympus 9-18mm Super-Wide.
Olympus 60mm macro.
Kenko extension Ring set 10 & 16.
Metz Macro Flash 15 MS1.

  • Hi I know what I am saying might be stupid--but it had happened to me. Have you accidentally pressed the display button and switched off your display???
  • Hi as everyone already commented; the options are almost without end. I can only recommend what I have experienced. I used to cart around my Nikon D200 including the 18- 200 lens, great combo but ...
  • Hi, it is difficult to comment without data. Changing speed will not be a good idea as you need the speed to catch the motion. You will have to get a good balance in your settings. Set your ISO to ...
  • Wow. Nice. Even cheaper online - AU$2379. https://michaels.com.au/products/olympus-omd-e-m1-mark-ii-body-92668 As you can see it was for only a short time - back to AU$2799.
  • Did you notice the image of the OLYMPUS is the old OMD EM1! https://michaels.com.au/products/olympus-omd-e-m1-mark-ii-body-92668
  • Replied in Just a couple
    Hi all, in reply to dv312 He mentioned upgrades to the Pen f. I have no comment regarding an improvement for the Oly OMD 1 mk2-3 This monster is already oversupplied with features for me. (and ...
  • Hi there, I don't think anyone is branding a whole service from anywhere, I see Petar's  post as a personal experience. You might have had good experience--perhaps you have been the lucky one?
  • Thanks Petar for your reply. How do you like your Pana G85, did you have any issues with it?
  • Hi all, I do know there is no perfect camera, I also know one can easily find amongst excellent cameras a dud. I suppose those of you interested in the Panasonic G80/85 will have read about ...
  • OMD-NH    (Never Happens!)
  • Hi all,
    I have since learned that the Panasonic G85 has indeed wireless flash--as long as the external flash is compatible. See diagram on page 161 in the instruction manual.
    There are plenty of...

  • Hi all,
    thank you for clearing this Wireless question for me. On looking in the Instruction Manual Page 161 it states indeed that it has wireless flash with suitable units.
    It makes my day, I...

  • Hi all,
    I wanted to purchase the Olympus EM1 just recently, but here in Australia stocks run out and will not be replaced.
    The new EM1 mark2 is for me far too advanced and expensive, leaving only...

  • NO, the G85 has no wireless function with the inbuilt flash. You need to buy the external flash DMW 200l or equivalent. see at the end of the notes
    See notes:

  • Replied in Gx8 vs G80/85
    Hi, You have currently the G7, as the saying goes the G80/85 has virtually the same body but is otherwise vastly improved. I definitely would go for the familiar feel of the G80/85. I have the GX 7 ...
  • Hi I have to correct myself, I meant the new Pana G8 not the 7!
  • Hi there, I had the very same question and have just purchased the Oly EM1. The main reason is that my hobby is macro. The G7 has a lot to offer in that respect but the deciding point was the Pana ...
  • hi again
    I have worked it out, via Digital Camera Warehouse (http://www.digitalcamerawarehouse.com.au/prod14407.htm)

    Sadly wireless is only available with the optional flash units DMW-FL 200L...

  • Hi all,
    definitely a great camera.
    It has everything for a macro photographer--has it wireless flash???
    Without this function I would find it not acceptable. Similar defeating the purpose if I...
