  • If it's sharper than the 25mm 1.2 Pro, then it will be a truly amazing lens.  Frustrating that some people have been using it for a while, but I can never seem to find one. :-(   Hopefully I son't ...
  • Created discussion thread Any sightings of the Oly 17mm 1.2 PRO?
    I have been planning to get this lens since it was announced, but supply seems to be VERY limited.  Any time I go to look at the usual sales sites, it is backordered.  Anyone have more up to date ...
  • Surely the key thing is that your 2TB HD is now 3/4 full.   If you expect to keep  a new machine for 6-10 years, I think you need to bite the bullet and just accept that photo/video storage will ...
  • I would suggest a 27" iMac.  Once you get used to the larger monitor nothing else will do.  The other reason to get the 27" is RAM upgradability.  Get the least RAM and then buy more later (if you ...
  • I’m wondering if your friends had much direct experience with this lens.  I have had one since 2009 and used it quiet a bit.  I like the low weight, and small size.  And the good resolution! ...
  • I admit to being somewhat prejudiced against fusion drives.  It's a hybrid technology intended only to reduce the pain of buying an SSD right now.  Fusion drives appear to be getting phased out by ...
  • Good question!  Answer is: If that's the case, I won't! I am hoping that either a new Mini comes out at the year end or a Mac Pro desk top is introduced with a lower end spec that meets my needs ...
  • Do you mean that you have 3 hard drives always connected by USB interfaces?  If so, you can configure your new 8TB drive as a Time Machine backup, by having one partition and indicating that you ...
  • If you are upgrading from anything 2007, you are going to see a big improvement if you buy anything from say 2015 on.  What you are asking is "How useful is 4 cores vs 2 cores?" I use a MB Air from ...
  • I use a Mac Mini with almost identical specs to your Mac Book Pro 13.  When I import files and convert to DNG and build standard pre-views it is very slow.  Like you I see 350% CPU loading on ...
  • Replied in Actually...
    Thanks for your help.  I finally got it working!  The interface and instructions could certainly use an update to make it less cryptic and confusing.
  • According to the OMD instruction manual it seems bone simple.  You just install the app from the Olympus site, turn on wi-fi on the camera and then do the QR scan.  Then when I turn on the app, ...
  • Indeed.  I have had the 25mm 1.2 for over a year and the  45mm 1.2 for a couple of weeks. These lenses are well worth the price IMnotsoHO.  I also have the 45mm 1.8 and it will provide about 95% ...
  • I think you will find that the vast majority of serious photographers will back up their photo files to another hard drive using third party software that did not come with the drive.  (The one ...
  • Replied in Edinburgh 1968
    Well I used to live there in 1968 (in Canada now).  Like seeing pictures of an old friend.  Thanks for posting.
  • Very shallow DoF does not always work, and tends to be somewhat overdone these days.  I would tend to agree that f/1.8 at 45mm is probably quite sufficient for almost all cases.  At least for my ...
  • Created discussion thread First look at the Olympus 45mm f/1.2
    Yesterday, I was at the Profusion show in Toronto and got to take a look at the 45 1.2.  The Olympus people let me borrow the lens (and the model) and shoot a few test pictures on my own camera ...
  • If you are using an actual scanner; flat bed scanner, or dedicated film scanner, it will come with or support scanner software that takes the file and inverts it (it the original was a negative, ...
  • I'm not sure what production variability applies to the Olympus 45mm f/1/8 (as opposed to the Panasonic 42.5mm f/1.7 that we seem to have got sidetracked onto), but I was using mine again ...
  • None at all. It's just that as soon as you start going off camera and using modifiers, bouncing off the ceiling etc. you will find you want more power. To start with however you can just ramp up ...
