    For my OMD-EM5 2 I know from experience that the silent (electronic) shutter is best: 1:  For auto HDR and auto exposure bracketing if the longer exposed images happen to use a slow shutter speed ...
  • Replied in Additional image
    Some here have suggested I test this lens by photographing a sheet of paper.  I do landscapes and for me such a test may not be useful.  Consider the geometry.  If a sheet of paper is ...
  • Created discussion thread Defective Oly 25mm lens
    Today I tested a new lens that I purchased from B&H Photo.  It is an Olympus 25mm f1.8 lens.  It was bought during the recent Olympus sale.  I had great expectations after having researched the ...
  • Replied in Tried again
    Today the rain stopped and I took more tests with high res.  Hurray, they all are fine.  So I am sure my camera has not developed a flaw and that the postings about atmospheric motion (heat haze) ...
  • Replied in No, because
    The book I have says the IBIS is automatically disabled when in the high res mode.
  • Replied in Some good ideas
    If it ever stops raining here I will do some more testing.  These shots were taken when it was between only 45 and 50 degrees F.  If this problem is caused by atmospheric movement between ...
  • Replied in No
    No.  The problem does not always happen, so if I tried RAW and they looked OK I could not say for certain that JPG was the cause.  My big fear is that the mechanism that drives the sensor those ...
  • I am using an Oly OM-D E5 Mark 2 and sometimes my hi-res images show very annoying pixel patterns on vertical lines.  See the comparison below. These are JPG (not RAW) images. This image below is ...
  • I have lived here for over 50 years and do not fear the rain.  I take a small towel in my camera bag.  I have had many cameras over the years but have never had one ruined by rain.  Many ...
  • This is the final example of my tests of Olympus focus bracketing. The image was taken with a Panasonic 14-45mm lens at 14mm and F5.6.  I set the camera's focus bracketing settings at 999 images ...
  • Replied in Example 2
    I am still testing focus bracketing and will report more results later.  My objective is to take landscapes having a very near foreground and extending to infinity. As you know, long lenses have ...
  • Replied in My first test
    Below is my first test of taking bracketed focus shots with my Oly OM-D E5 2.  I used a Panasonic Lumix Vario 14-45 lens.  I set the number of exposures at 999 and the separation at one for best ...
  • Replied in Good comments
    Thanks for the good comments.  Yes, I will post my results here when I get outside to do some testing.  It might be a few days or so.
  • Replied in Thanks to all
    Thanks to you all for your helpful comments.  Yes, my camera is the OMD E5 2. I have made myself a spreadsheet that calculates how many shots should be taken by the camera to cover the range to ...
  • Created discussion thread Olympus OMD focus bracketing questions
    I have updated my firmware and am about to test the focus bracketing feature but would appreciate knowing the following before I begin. I am wanting to shoot landscapes that are in focus from a ...
