  • Dennis I looked at that particular thread and there are no sub-threads. All posts are replies to the OP. But as Daniel points out, you can toggle between seeing the name of the respondent and the ...
  • But if a bird is wearing a helmet the new smart AF system will lock right on to it :-) seriously,  as soon as I read that it has 121 AF Target points I lost interest. Same sensor, same readout ...
  • Good results anyway Dennis. The 2nd shot is my favourite. Astro shooting can go that way. A few years back I drove for 5 hrs straight to get clear sky for a comet. The next day I shot it from the ...
  • neither Live mode is useful to show you wysiwyg for exposure purposes when shooting planetary subjects which typically need exposures of a few seconds to 1/1000 sec depending on the lens or ...
  • Thanks for that link Rick, seems like it has some good info. Astro shooting is one area where the EVF can’t give us WYSIWYG exposure assistance and we need to chimp or rely on proven settings used ...
  • I kept my E-5 and skipped the Mk 1. The Mk 2 is OK but I was hoping for better. I don’t hold much hope that the X will do PDAF with 4/3 lenses any better than the Mk 2. If it does then it probably ...
  • perhaps you could use a strobe together with an ND filter. The subject would of course need to be within range of the strobe. Peter
  • Replied in E-M1 II
    Are you referring to Interval Shooting ? Interval  Shooting has a minimum wait between frames of 1 sec. To capture 60 frames will take at least a minute. I’d like a mode where you can capture a ...
  • Replied in E-M1 II
    Live time only adds/integrates as it detects new data to be captured. It’s great for doing star trails or catching multiple lightning strokes. I need the camera to take say 100 shots at 15 sec ...
  • That’s like saying the maximum speed of your car allows for higher speed running, not road conditions, traffic and speed zones. The conditions and my needs dictate the speed I drive, not the top ...
  • Replied in Tommi K1
    Tommi K1 your slective editing of my last response to you is interesting to say the least In your previous post to me you made a condescending remark suggesting that I didn’t know anything about ...
  • Can you give a link to the most recent case of M4/3 bashing. That should not be too difficult if it is as you say “constant”. I put a similar question to TN and am waiting for his response. I ...
  • Replied in Agreed Marty
    > Seems like a case of paranoia to me, but maybe I missed it, so please give us a link to the most recent example of targeted MFT bashing. Peter
  • hatches and doors have hinges. The battery access on the E-M1X is clearly identifiable as being on the LH end (as views from behind) of the camera. And the batteries are installed and removed on a ...
  • Again you suggest that wildlife photographers don’t use their big lenses wide open. And you base that on one or two exhibits you’ve looked at. What about this observation https://www.dpreview.com/f ...
  • Replied in E-M1 II
    TRAP FOCUS: a feature that would release the shutter - single/burst/ProCapture - when the camera detects a subject in focus within the set AF Target point(s). Useful in wildlife photography ASTRO ...
  • Replied in Size
    1D and 5D models have coexisted for many years and the 1D series has always been the flagship. Olympus however is about to bring out a new flagship with the same Mpx count as their current ...
  • Perhaps there are some scientific data logging applications where a camera needs to be set up in time lapse mode recording images of some natural phenomenon or life form. I can see that barometric ...
  • I know what you mean Danny. This morning I was in a forest shooting small twitchy birds and was at ISO4000 and down around 1/640sec with the APS-C camera and 600mm F5.6.  I definitely would have ...
