    I don't have a problem...what problem do you think I have?
  • Agree, although the 4 batteries and 2 chargers I carry are all OEM.
  • I still have my elbow tucked in with the technique I use, the ONLY difference is the rotation of the wrist! Most of my lenses are over a kg. Anyway, what IS the difference between the two setups, ...

  • Olympus had a battery charger that could do it in an hour, but it was hard on the batteries. Later Olympus chargers (designed for the same battery) were slower to make it easier on the batteries.
  • Seriously though, never dropped a camera, lens, or accessory in all the decades of shooting. At least with a camera, the first thing I do is put the strap around my neck so I can't drop it.
  • There are pundits out there telling people there's only one proper way to hold the camera, like this: When I TRY to hold the camera like that, my wrist is under so much stress I can't hold the ...

  • But you're stating other people's opinions about the technology, what you read and maybe watched in videos, not your own opinion!

  • Some people make counterfeit cards (even retailers on Amazon). Counterfeit cards are ones where a card may have failed testing, and then someone garbage picks it and puts a fake label from a brand ...
  • Unless someone has bought the patent rights to it, Kodak before it went under developed a sensor that was significantly more sensitive to light using a different colour pattern: You can read all ...
  • No offence, but if you never used a camera with an EVF, how can you give an opinion on it? You're not wrong in what you say (and it has been said a million times), and those of us who use EVF do ...
  • "ajscullard's" intention was trying to HELP the opening poster reach a target audience that could PROPERLY answer the question. You may enjoy seeing topics about film photography, but could YOU ...
  • The only times I'll use BBF is when I'm photographing something that doesn't change distance from the camera.  For instance, if I'm doing a model shoot and I'll take couple hundred pictures, I ...
  • Have you never shot over a crowd? I have with both digital and film cameras, and while today we have the advantage of tilt screens so I can actually see what I'm photographing, before that I WAS ...
