  • Replied in Correction
    I expect Bob is right on the money.  I had several early Panasonics with articulating screens, the EM5 with tilt and now a GX85 with tilt.  I didn't choose or not choose any of them because of the ...
  • I have used Noteability for a number of years.  I used to use an Adonit stylus with it but its terrific with the new Pencil on an Ipad Pro.  You can use text, hand writing, photos,  (combine-cut ...
  • Replied in 15, 25, 45
    I have long considered the 12-35/2.8, even the 12-40/2.8  and carried the older Oly 12-50/3.5-5.6 (sort of similar weight/length) last weekend.  That decided me--I was a very long time Canon ...
  • Andrew, just wanted you to know this is exactly what I wanted/needed.  I had some initial difficulty--not having good luck with the SD slot.  I went to the WD My Passport forum and was sent to a ...
  • Thank you, ordered today from B&H with 32G SD in bundle.  I downloaded the manual and read it, found some other good current info and decided it would work for me.
  • Thanks Andrew--that's really helpful.  I was replying to above from notification and hadn't read yours.  That solves the problem.
  • For years I have used the Camera Connector to upload my files to my iPad, first the 30 pin connector and now the lightning connector version.  I want to upload raw files from either my card or my ...
  • Created discussion thread Wifi external harddrives
    I want to use a wifi harddrive (hopefully with USB also) for backup while traveling.  i have found two--the LaCie Fuel and the WD Wireless My Passport.  I have learned that the WD does support raw ...
  • Thanks, have read specs and the manual and though it does everything else I want, can find no documentation that it supports raw files. It rqther implies that--but before I buy another wifi drive ...
  • I have an Ipad Pro 12.7"--have had many Ipads--and have set it up over wifi for a number of versions.  I dislike Itunes and only used it to finish installing IOS10 on my older Ipad Air (due to ...
  • I'm looking for a wifi external to use with Ipad Pro that takes raw files.  I want a similar workflow--however I have long used the camera connector, both old 30 pin and now the lightning one to ...
  • Ah, I like the system so much after using strap and/or sling (I prefer sling since I used a faux Black Rapid one for a good while) I ordered the Peak Design wrist strap--considered the cuff but it ...
  • I didn't say it explicitly--that I'm thinking of those times you can't waste time changing lenses-but that approaches my thinking.  When you are with others at events (not covering them) or ...
  • Created discussion thread 12-35-40/2.8 on Panny GX85/80
    Curious if anyone is using the Panny 12-35/2.8 or the Oly 12-40/2.8 on the Panasonic GX85/80? I have quite a few lenses , both Panasonic and Olympus plus a Sigma 60/2.8. Today I carried both my ...
  • You mean the battery is not charging?  AFAIK you can't charge battery via USB but even though I've had em5 for years, I've never considered it so don't know for sure.  I have both the original ...
  • Oh my, just absolutely beautiful butterflies and good capture.  Yes we're longtime organic on 20 acres so that helps but neighbors aren't.  Nothing like that in our South (US) though we have our ...
  • I just got my Slidelite and 4 extra connectors today so don't have an opinion yet.  Over the years I've used a lot of straps for my FF Canons and my m4/3s.  Since I've shot with my Em5 since it ...
  • Thinking the same--I just liked the simple graphic image
  • LOL  I'm pretty impressed with mine--received Friday evening and after setting up and testing took it with me yesterday and shot a bit.  I come friom an em5 which i still like but this is a fun ...
  • Agree but I have a lot of devices charging on USB LOL. I will only  carry a charger and batteries while traveling--well maybe the cable/USB too since I could charge two that way %>)
