  • Replied in Optimum....
    Use the lens from 70mm out to about 110mm and stop down one stop. In that range it is as sharp as just about any m4/3 lens you can buy shot wide open. It also works well with the cheap OEM macro ...
  • There are threads about this that have gone on ad nauseum. If you do a search I am sure that you will find one of them. One former forumer who is no longer with us insisted that cropping does ...
  • More importantly: what do you do with the ones you take? Do you print them and put them on your wall and rotate them with the seasons? Do you have a video screen where you have a constant loop of ...
  • Replied in Vidau...
    That's Vidau-always nested stories in his work. Tedolph
  • Replied in Ha!
    Ha! That is fabulous. Tedolph
  • Replied in Incredible...
    Guy, this is incredibly helpful. Thank you. Tedolph
  • Replied in Turn the ring...
    Manual focus. Just like photographers and astronomers did for 800 years. Tedolph
  • Sometimes the mix of incandescent and fluorescent lighting is so inconsistent I just converted everything to B&W. Works fine fir sports. Tedolph
  • Replied in Mine failed....
    Mine failed after three years of very light use and out of warranty. The manual focus clutch failed to work although AF continued to function properly. probably a cable issue but my guess was that ...
  • Replied in This....
    It isn't. Zoom lenses tend to be slow. Now you are thinking.  There are lots of great K mount f/1.8 or f/2.8 lenses.  Manual focus is very easy for events like this. Yep, but 200 mm is way longer ...
  • You can buy an accessory grip for next to nothing. Tedolph
  • Replied in Flash...
    Using flash at a performance is a real no no.  It will get you ejected and perhaps banned at most venues. I am assuming that the management has approved you for taking photo's etc. Tedolph
  • The on board flash is perfect for a puff of daylight fill flash, and controls off camera TTL flash, slave studio storobes, etc. I can't imagine not using it and will not buy a m4/3 camera that does ...
  • Outstanding lens. Wonder why they won't make an equivalent today? TEdolph
  • Replied in Great shots!
    Thanks Jeff, my daughter took these.   She does weddings, etc.  Note that they were done with the humble E-pl1 and a 12mp sensor. One note, these were all shot with legacy manual focus lenses. A ...
  • The FL-300 will do a lot off camera. If you do not have a built in flash, you can set it to manual 1/8 power to trigger off camera studio strobes wirelessly. This works great if you need a ...
  • Replied in Cell phone....
    It doesn't matter.  You need a fast lens to shoot moving objects in low light.  The OM-1 can not deny the laws of Physics. I don't see the relevancy here.  Again, physics is determanitive. Then ...
  • It won't. Not in a dim environment shooting non-static subjects. TEdolph
  • Replied in Guess?
    Yes. Yes. No.  It matters because what successful companies make usually matches up with why most people want to buy.  It has something to do with why Olympus had to be sold. Tedolph
  • First of all, that shot has a lot more light than a concert will.  I can tell you from shooting operas you will need F/2 and 1/60 to freeze people sitting down and 1/125 for people moving about. ...
