  • A reply to all. Thanks for all the kind words. I came away from this trip with LOTS of good photos. It was a wonderful experience and hard to choose which ones to enter. I can heartily...

  • I can't offer anything constructive in the way of an answer, but I thought that if you aren't aware of this source you might be able to get relevant info from The Narrow Band Channel on YouTube.  ...
  • Thanks for this!  Do you happen to know if it works with ExifTool GUI?

  • Replied in Wide Memaloose
    In the Columbia River Gorge, Oregon.  The town in the distance is about 3 miles away.
  • Replied in Connect to PC
    Rick is correct.  But you may not have the correct USB socket on your PC.  The cable has USB Type C connectors.  If you only have the older standard Type A sockets on your PC then you will need ...
  • To a large extent card size seems like a personal choice.  It depends on your shooting style and comfort level.  I'm sort of anal about backups, believing that it isn't a photo unless it is ...
  • I confess that after 15 years of shooting Olympus digital cameras, I was completely unaware of the Shading Compensation setting. It was turned off in my Em1.3 cameras as well as my new OM1. ...
  • Created discussion thread Vignette corection for OM-1 + 150-400?
    I've seen a noticeable vignette using the OM-1 with the 150-400 lens.  It can be clearly seen when viewing an image on the back of the camera, and isn't corrected by Lightroom.  It also seems to ...
  • More wolves this week.  The first is the as-shot version.  The sky was gray and there was abundant snow on the ground.  All blown out with no background contrast at all.  The second was my first ...
  • Replied in Pairi Daiza
    It looks as if you and I had similar ideas for this week.  That is a beautiful animal.  And I must say that expression is priceless.  I believe it is the closest thing to a smirk that I've ever seen.
  • Replied in Three Amigos
    On my recent Yellowstone trip, I didn't see any photograph-able wolves in the wild.  But there is a wonderful wolf and bear interpretive center in the town of West Yellowstone.  I shot these three ...
  • For entry into a photo club competition, I might suggest a couple of things - depending on the competition rules, of course. (1) Consider cloning out the darkish area in the upper right corner
  • I just finished a chat exchange with B&H customer support about the free promotional battery.  At first they seemed uncertain as to whether my pre-order (placed on Feb 14th) qualified, which it ...
  • Replied in Snow Drift
    I've returned from a week-long trip to Yellowstone National Park.  My usual process is to let my photos "percolate" for a few weeks after a trip like this to distance myself from the emotional ...
  • While waiting (patiently . . . . ;-)  ) for my OM-1 to arrive on Friday, I've been reading through the on-line manual.  It states that when plugged into the supplied USB AC adapter "The battery ...
  • B&H shipped my body-only order this morning.  Due to arrive Friday Mar 4.
  • For what it's worth, I have never had a problem with dirty sensors going all the way back to my E30 days (circa 2010).  That includes two African safaris and trips to Galapagos and Costa Rica.  My ...
