  • Well, so far it seems like a toss-up between the lenses.  I do like the size of the EZ.  I will wait, though, for a significant discount on it.  A number of months ago Oly sold it for $200, and if ...
  • Thanks.  That's helpful.
  • Thanks, all, for the responses.  Do you find the zoom on the EZ to be much slower than you could do manually?
  • Created discussion thread Oly 14-42 IIR or 14-42 EZ
    Recently I got the OMD EM10 Mk II, mainly as a second body along with my EM1 MkII. I use the 10mkII with wide angle lenses and the EM1MKII with telephotos...usually the 7-14 or 12-40 on the ...
  • Whoops! I meant to write OMD1 Mk II!
  • Thank you.  My issue was not how to get the lens foot horizontal, just why on my camera/lens combination the white line on the ring of the lens foot does not line up with the dot on the lens ...
  • Created discussion thread MZuiko 40-150Pro and Lens Foot
    I had removed the lens foot for some months and just decided to remount it.  When I lined up the white mark on the ring that goes around the lens with the white mark on the lens body, the lens ...
  • Thanks for the suggestions.  I found that Proshow Producer, which I have had, might be the easiest way for me to go, producing one slide show set to use the arrow keys or page-up and page-down ...
  • Created discussion thread Need help with file sizes and formats
    I am in the process of copying some very old yearbooks, using a camera and copy stand. My goal is to produce three sets of "books," one for viewing on a computer, another for tablets, and the ...
  • I was aware of both of those, but I needed to have a tripod plate that would allow the use of the BlackRapid connector where the top folds into a recessed area on the plate so that I could ...
  • Yup! Same sort of thing.  I found a few narrower tripod plates, but I wanted one that would fit the BlackRapid connector.  Olympus missed the opportunity of licensing some other manufacturer's ...
  • I used a small file and then some extra fine grit sandpaper and filed the front edge of the tripod plate to mimic the curve of the lens barrel until I could see daylight between the edge of the ...
  • I was able to borrow the Oly EE-1.  I tried it with my OMD EM-1MkII and sighted it in.  I then removed it and reseated it, not interfering with it as I tightened the wheel. I made sure that I ...
  • Replied in Made my decision
    When the BR straps went on sale this week I ordered the BR Hybrid Breathe.  The Double seemed to be overkill for the size of my cameras and lenses, and I like the fact that I can still use the ...
  • Created discussion thread OMD EM10MkII and Tripod Plate
    I've been shooting with the EM1.2 and got the EM10.2 to use as a 2nd body, with the bigger camera for telephoto lenses and the smaller one for wide angle lenses, in order to avoid always having ...
  • I agree.  I've been using the BlackRapid Sport Breathe, which is a cross-body sling for an OMD-EM1 Mk II with lenses up to the PL 100-400 and found I can shoot comfortably all day.  After adding a ...
  • Thanks for the link.  I've used Peak Design stuff in the past but prefer the BlackRapid, although I have PD handgrips on my cameras. The BR Hybrid system hangs one camera cross-body, and the other ...
  • Thank you for all the guidance on converting to a simulated Hybrid strap.  I tried several ways of attaching clips, loops, carabiner, etc., to the back part of my strap, and nothing worked to get ...
  • I checked out and found the carabiners.  Do you think it is worth the extra money to get carabiners that lock, like the one that attaches to the camera?  They're just a couple of dollars more.  I ...
  • Very possibly so.  I have now tried and found unusable because of inconsistent positions when reseating the RDS after removing it, both the original adapter and the Shapeways 3-D printed adapter.  ...
