  • Would certainly be interesting.
  • Sounds to me like continuous AF is enabled?
  • I think Big Al is talking about Manual Focus mode, not manual exposure mode. I don't have a PL5 but on the PL 1 I just go into the quick menu and set AF to MF mode which should solve your problem?
  • Replied in Yi M1
    Yi, is Xiaoyi's "younger person" brand. They make a lot of action cams and home monitors etc. The M1 is their first (and only) m4/3 cam.

    If it has a warranty the £200 is ok, but I think you can get a better deal on it if it is classed as used.

    All the reviews, are of the non firmware updated cameras, and the firmware is pretty much fixed all the UI issues. Now body only i''d look at £150 ish or less. The camera has a good sensor, just ...
  • I think that Olympus lack a premium mid range lens to replace the venerable 50-200mm. Maybe the 150-400mm is the Full frame evq, so a 75-200mm ? Maybe 2.8-4 or f4 constant? I'd give my eye teeth ...

    E1 that is, and E-M1 E1-50-200mm E1 50-200mm E-M1 50-200mm A usurper!
  • It was the warranty worries, and the fact I have a 5D too means the Tamron would be usable on both, except I'd lack caf on the Olympus. I'm surprised no one has tried both on M4/3
  • Created discussion thread Tamron vs Panasonic 100-400mm
    Has anyone run any comparison between the two lenses? The Tamron is much cheaper even with an adaptor than the Panasonic.
  • Blur the water or don't blur the water. It is up to you, and the mood you want to purvey. If you want a relaxing image, add blur, if you want an "aggressive" image use high shutter speed and stop ...
  • Any pictures of the grip and with it attached to the camera?
  • Hi Harri, nice, I think that is a Common frog, Rana temporaria, it looks a little thin too. Hope it is getting enough to eat.
  • Sadly so, there have been some very upsetting images and stories of whats happened to local wildlife and farm animals.

    Thanks, I was very into photography about 10 years ago, and I'm trying to get back into  it again.
  • Thanks, it is one of the worst fires in living memory, and a second fire has started about 30 miles away.
