  • Created discussion thread G85 Focus Stacking w/non-native lenses
    Will the focus stacking feature in the G85 work EXACTLY the same with a Canon macro lens/Smart Adapter combination as it does with native lenses.  I know that with the E-M1, focus stacking will ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon 100-400 to M4/3
    Has anyone out there in "adaptaland" successfully adapted the "push-pull" Canon 100-400 lens to an Olympus OM-D E-M1, using the Kipon "smart adapter" V2.5 or 2.6? Thanks dickg1
  • Tom; Re using your Kenko 1.4:  I had one years ago and was able to use it successfully with slower Canon lenses (70-300 f4-5.6) because, unlike the Canon converters, the Kenko was missing that ...
  • Thanks for your help  What lenses have you adapted with the Kipon - and have you noticed much difference between V2.5 & 2.6?  I think I read somewhere that V2.6 made the adapter compatible with ...
  • Created discussion thread Kipon Firmware V2.6
    I've been trying to download the V2.6 firmware update from Kipon's website, but either the link is corrupt or for some reason, none of my "un-zip" tools can open that particular "RAR" file. If ...
  • I already have the Kipon adapter - not looking to get the Metabones or use a Canon body.  I would really like to know if the older Canon 100-400 will work.  I would love to have the new Panny ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon EF Mount Lenses on M4/3
    I have been using a Sigma 150-600C and Kipon Autofocus adapter (firmware 2.5) on my Olympus OMD E-M1with great success.  I would like to know what other Canon (or Canon mount) lenses people have ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon Lenses on E-M1
    I have been using a Kipon Autofocus Adapter (firmware 2.5) with a Sigma 150-600 on my E-M1 with considerable success, but would perhaps like to expand my Canon (or other EF mount) lens ...
  • Created discussion thread Remote Shutter Cabability
    I am looking for a non-interchangeable lens compact camera, similar in size to the Canon G7x, Panasonic LX100, etc, that will enable me to use a remote shutter release cord or some sort of wireless ...
  • I have that adapter in use with a Sigma 150-600C (Canon mount) on my E-M1 and it works very well. The link below is for a Kipon Adaptability Chart, which shows suitability for a limited number of ...
  • Fastone Image Viewer can read virtually all raw files and it is free .  I've used it for years with files from Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus & Panasonic dickg1
  • I have the Kipon Smart Adapter which I use with my E-m1 & Sigma 150-600. I have attached a link to Kipon's Adaptiblilty Chart which shows good results for the Sigma 105 & 180 Macros, but doesn't ...
  • To me, the biggest single advantage if using that lens on the GM5 is the fact that shutter shock is completely eliminated because of the GM5's first curtain electronic shutter , which sadly, isn't ...
  • Mike; The case I use is the Tamrac "Small Pouch" MX5382.  It is a belt case and part of the M.A.S. line and holds the GM5/12-32 with a screw-in lens shade attached - or the clip-on flash attached. ...
  • I have bought and successfully used Wasabi and Power 2000 batteries for most of my cameras over the years.  All have been purchased from Amazon.  I would recommend however, that you carry 2 spare ...
  • Well, the response I got was what I had hoped for - that is, while the file numbers can be tweaked to a certain extent, the shutter actuations cannot. Thanks to all for replying - I shall enjoy my ...
  • Created question thread FZ1000 Shutter Count Reset?
    Is it possible, under ANY circumstances to reset the shutter actuation count on this camera?  I ask because I just purchased and received a used FZ1000 at a very low price from a very reputable dealer.
  • I would consider 2 possible solutions.  Since the GM5 has an electronic first curtain shutter, putting the 14-140 on it and the 9-18 on the G5 would completely eliminate the shutter shock issue, ...
  • I am using the Kipon Smart Adapter with a Sigma 150-600C in a Canon EF mount on my E-M1 and it focuses very well on stationary subjects.  I haven't had an opportunity to try it out on BIF yet.  I ...
