  • Okay, so this was a used copy from Ador...., but I still want it to be built correctly.  As soft as it is on the left, there is no point in using it. At first I thought I was seeing DOF effects and ...
  • Really DPR? You do a decent job of mentioning the Pro's and Con's except the most important one. How about almost medium-format levels of detail without any of the Bayer filter blurring we have...

  • I have an original dp1s and a dp2.  They are still excellent image makers, but indeed, the color casts is a problem. After seeing your thread I ran a quick test with a dp1 image and x3ftools. ...
  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Barry, I've long been an avid Pentax user but the truth is, a simple Sony P&S provides a refreshingly confident AF relative to my K5 IIs or any Pentax I have owned for that matter. Again, my...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    A smart mirrorless design that kept the lens communication protocols would have allowed Pentax to design a converter like Olympus that uses older lenses with no loss in functionality. That would...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Agreed. I own a number of Pentax bodies, but the AF has always been the disappointing element of being a Pentax user. I doubt SAFOX 12 is much better. The AF has never been close to Nikon or...

  • No problem.  The more I use the 14-54 II the more I like it.  It's an amazing lens.  Excellent from wide open and a pleasure to shoot with.  I wish Olympus made something equivalent for the m4/3 ...
  • Thanks!  Though I'm still annoyed about the motion blur on the house lights.  :-( I don't think I'll get a fish to jump, on command, into the reflection of the bolt next time, which is a nice ...
  • CDAF Optimized lenses are those specifically designed to focus quickly and accurately with Contrast Detect Auto Focus. In other words lenses that work well with imager focusing as opposed to PDAF ...
  • I should have noted that all my testing with this lens is on the E-M10 mk1.
  • They still work generally well albeit more slowly even on the E-M10 and E-M5.  However, the "CDAF Optimized" lenses actually work quite well on the 10 and the 5.  So, if you get an adapter, look ...
  • Managed to find a very nice 14-54 II at Adorama.  It cost a fair bit more than the mk 1 but well worth it IMO.  No, it does not focus as fast as the new MSC lenses, but it's quite useable and much ...
  • I hadn't really considered using Live Composite to simulate multiple light sources. Cool. That lightning shot is a stunner.  VERY nice!  Always helps to have a photogenic storm.  :-)
  • Yes, unfortunately Live Composite would end up creating motion streaks for everything that moved and created variations in illumination. You are going to have to use relatively short exposures ...
  • I'll try the OS setting.  Thanks for the tip.
  • I calibrate my laptop display with the Spider and I had left the color management settings turned on in Olympus Viewer 3.  This cause all kinds of odd shadow blocking even viewing OOC jpegs.  I ...
  • Created discussion thread Olympus Viewer 3 posterizing shadows
    I have noticed that Olympus viewer and even in-camera processing on my E-M10 has a habit of posterizing the shadows.  This is especially noticeable when there are large dark portions of the frame. ...
  • Thanks for the tip.  That is exactly what I was looking for.   Much better than having a cable dangling off the camera causing it's own vibrations.
  • Actually I had no trouble using the BLS-50 charger with the BLS-1.  The charger appears to be designed such that in the absence of the extra pin it just acts like the old charger and terminates ...
  • Created discussion thread EM-10 using older Olympus battery style
    I've recently been using an old E-420 battery (BLS-1) with my E-M10 and had no problems. Neither the E-M10 or the 4-contact charger seem to care. The shape is obviously the same as the BLS-50 ...
