  • That's not necessarily true. If you have a hard plate that is in contact with the base of the camera, you are pressing the camera and the plate together. If you have a soft pad surrounded by hard ...
  • If your tripod mount has a soft rubber pad surrounded by a hard edge, and you compress the rubber pad to a point where the hard plastic edge is touching the base, then tightening more pulls down ...

    If you're a pro and have to carry a lot of gear, you could make that argument. Not if you travel light though. The savings is more than 1 lb in 6lbs. My daughter has an EM-5 mark iii, the 14-150, ...
  • This is almost exactly what I chose for my daughter for her semester abroad in Ireland. The EM5iii and the 14-150 . It's a small and weatherproof combination. I addded a 17mm1.8 and a 45mm1.8 for ...

  • I agree with you. They are treating it like an ordinary warranty claim. Isn't that what they should be doing? I'm not trying to pick on you or provoke an argument. I'd be upset if my new camera had ...
  • I always love grandiose internet claims. Might be true, might not be. Was there a point to making it here without providing any evidence? Are we supposed to simply accept that everything someone ...
  • I wouldn't judge Olympus based on how their tech support responded so far. This is a rare situation. A warranty claim on a new model of a camera outside the country where it was sold. Looking at ...
  • Smartphones are cameras. Cameras, plus communication devices, plus mini computers...  So really, more cameras are being sold now than ever before They're just part of a device that has more ...
  • Thank you for the explanations. I saw today that the em1 III and a new lens may be revealed next month, so that will be interesting. Happily, my daughter is not a gear head. She will be happy with ...
  • As someone new to the forum, I apologize if this is too basic a question, but I'm still learning. I bought my daughter an EM5iii and the 14-150 II, for Christmas. She is spending a semester abroad ...
