  • Do you or anybody else know how it looks currently in Tai O after typhoon?
  • I'm using Gx850(GF9) as my main travel and landscape camera and love it. 1. As you can guess, can be sometime annoying in very bright situations. I shoot a lot street photography in darker markets, ...
  • Little noob question, does LENR affect RAW files or only JPG? I was shooting long exposures with GF9 and then needed to deal with hot pixelsin RAWs in DXO.
  • Considering it weights like 3 different primes, it's not something that I would be willingly putting on my GF9.
  • In China, all small cameras used by young people or tourists are either Canon or Fujifilm. You can buy them in any big electro shop. While Olympus and Panasonic are hidden even when you go to ...
  • Taobao.
  • Any experience with using 46-37 step down ring instead of lens hood on 15mm/1.7? I'm using it as many others on 20/1.7 and also on 25/1.7, but not sure how will it be on 15mm.
  • Living in SE Asia, travelling is quite affordable and I'm hitting my limit of vacation before any financial limit. So you can keep your witty response for another thread.
  • Created question thread Upgrading primes
    I enjoy using prime lenses and so far I got what many consider the best value primes in the M43 system, Pana 25/1.7, Pana 20/1.7 and Oly 45/1.8. And while Oly works perfectly, I have problems with ...
  • You can get additional metal grip for GF9/8/7, originally from GF7 I think? Works 10x better than tiny grip on GF10.
  • GF9/GF10 is heavily marketed as selfie camera for woman, walk through Tokyo and you will find it in each camera shop, showed on quite prominent place, with posters of girls taking selfies around ...
  • Replied in MFT in Asia?
    My experience from China : You can meet people on street with Olympus quite often, from old ladies using EM10 with pancake EZ lens to guys with Em1ii. Surprisingly Panasonic seems to be ...
  • You can find copies of Everyday Backpack and 5L/10L slings on Taobao. But they are rough clones, mainly details are quite different, so nobody who ever saw a photo of original should be tricked.
  • Created question thread Third party charger for Olympus
    I have Olympus EM10ii, using original batteries BLS-50. And since original charger is bulky, needs AC power and only charges one battery at time, I'm looking to get something more practical for ...
  • I'm really happy with Peak Design 5L sling. I'm using one of smallest rigs you can build in M43 - Olympus EM10ii, Pana 20/1.7, Pana 12-32 and Pana 35-100/4-5.6. And I can fit all these things in ...
  • Micro SD is not problem for me personally, but I also don't go for the high-speed ones. Thanks to phones and their need of mSD cards, you can find them anywhere, prices mostly comparable. And of ...
  • I have GX850/GF9 as my main travel camera for past few months, just perfect size for short business trips alongside 2-3 lenses and tiny tripod. Lack of EVF is up to personal preferences and can be ...
  • Replied in Hong Kong
    Morning "view" of Hong Kong from Shenzhen Bay.
  • Wrong, GF9/GX850 already is without AA filter. Sensor in GF9 and GF10 is identical, also same as GX85. Overall, GF10 only brings tiny grip(getting external grip for GF9 is much better) and some ...
  • This only show the problem of Olympus line-up. With Sony, even basic A7iii gives you latest generation sensor, great battery and newest tech.  A7R and A9 adds something special on top. If you want ...
