  • Seriously? You can't actually get the E-M1 II today (at least, not in this country), so opinions on this camera are limited to a few reviews from folks with excellent ties to Olympus. That said, I ...
  • The photos were, by themselves, the most enticing review of a lens I have seen. Thank you for posting and reviewing. Now to control my urge to purchase.
  • Thank you. Amazing shots. I had a chance to shoot the Blue Angels over Chicago when they practiced for their show last year. You prove that using the same equipment I used, much batter results are ...
  • ... Thanks for the excellent suggestion. For those of us who just heard of this from you, could you please supply a "how to" answer: a. creating a GPX track log file on your phone, b. synchronizing ...
  • I believe the wireless app does allow this. I tried it and it did work. However, I do not use it because to use it requires that your cell phone is running the app. Not sure if you can use the ...
  • Just curious, Have you tried the dot sight? It is claimed to be designed to help just this scenario. Thanks
  • The set together is more impressive than any one: "Nautical Patterns", perhaps. I liked 2, 4, and 6 best. Every shot highlights the "not really the same" repetitions. Thanks.
  • Replied in Why ISO?
    I had thought that the dominate noise source was "shot noise" which comes from the fact that light arrives in discrete photons with a probability of generating some number of electrons in the ...
  • The F-stop universally determines the amount of light per unit area. What this means is that a FF camera with 4 times the pixels of an mFT camera would have the same shot noise per pixel. If the...

  • Late last week, I installed win7 onto a clean Netbook, using do Clean Install. The install requested drivers--and let me change the DVD for one I generated with all the Win 7 drivers for the ...
  • I bought my replacement from Amazon some time ago. Had to buy a bunch because it was the same price as one. Mine now has a level--which is cute, and sometimes useful. Fits better, too. GetOlympus ...
  • Replied in High fashion
    I am now hopeful that I can turn the screen in and just use the EVF for casual chimping. For me, this is rare, but occasionally useful. In fact, EVF for everything is a worthy goal, but only if ...
  • Replied in Forum tourism
    A very interesting observation. Thank you for doing this research. In my case, the drop in forum use is partly determined by a need to spend more time processing the thousands of photos it has ...
  • Looking at this thread, I can assume you are not an expert on either PC's or Lightroom. You got some very good advice early on: buy a system that is already working with some guarantee it will be ...
  • I now travel with a Surface 3 (or Surface 4). The size would seem to fit your needs, as does the functionality. If weight is a major consideration, an external battery is probably a bad idea. The ...
  • Hi, I have had the same problem twice. The spin wheel fast trick did not work for me--made things worse. Both times, sent the camera back to Olympus via the camera store where I got it. Took 6 ...
  • I would like to have two MFT bodies, and have held off so far. Same battery would be very nice. I hope Olympus moves to a FinFET process (like TSMC's latest) for the processor. This, plus some real ...
  • Consider getting Olympus to fix the body. My most recent replacement of the rear wheel seems to have taken--and the replacement/repair feels better than the old wheel ever did. An E-M1 with a ...
  • You can certainly get the images you want. I have made the Alaska trip and have been using mFT gear for a while. I have not used Panny gear, so will focus on Olympus based gear. My suggestions: 1. ...
  • Replied in Poor test
    I had posted above about processing differences and both in-camera and in-Lightroom processing choices (and the weakness of Lightroom's default for Olympus orf). You could use the default Leica and ...
