About me:

I am a professional photographer with 40+ years in the field. Most of my work is in the corporate and PR fields. I am also pretty new to the digital world (about 3 years since I put the Leicas in the safe and sold the Nikon F-2's - I used them up until about a year ago!) - on eBay. That means I will probably ask some dumb questions from time to time. Bare with me.

  • Created question thread Is there any difference in SD cards?
    Is there any difference in SD cards that I need to be concerned with? Let me first mention I have been using them for years in my P&S cameras and have about a dozen from different makers – just ...
  • Created question thread HLD-7 From Oly vs "No-Names"
    Anybody have anything to say about the HLD-7 battery grip made by Olympus vs. the various 'no name' models on sale at eBay (and other places on line) ? They all seem look the same but the ...
  • Created question thread Generic HLD-7?
    New E M-1 user here and yet another question, this time regarding the HLD-7 battery grip. Seems to be a number of generic and 'no-name' grips out there at quite a range of prices starting at under ...
  • Created question thread "Decoded" Battery?
    I I was looking for some extras for my Olympus E-M1 on eBay and came across some listed as s"decoded" and "half coded."  Can anyone explain the term as it applies here? Thanks!
  • Created question thread Non Olympus Flash/Cord with E-M1?
    Just unpacked my E-M1 and downloaded manual (my printer is begging for a break!) and started watching a few YouTube videos. Clearly lots of info and lots to learn about my new camera ..... and ...
  • Thanks Greg (and to ALL!) for the quick and overall helpful replies. Looks like the consensus is that switching from the Canon 50d's to the “new” E-M II will still let me turn out essentially the ...

  • Thank you Peter - One other vague concern (I say "vague" because it is just that) is that there don't seem to be many after market accessories for 4/3.  Example: walking around the Expo floor, I ...
  • Created discussion thread Switch to OM D E-M1?
    I am a working pro with close to 50 years in the field. My professional work is mostly corporate and for the last few years I have been using Canon EOS 50D's with 18 – 55 mm lens for just about ...
  • OK, that explains it c!early. Thanks! Photography has been going downhill since Kodak stopped making Panatomic-X.........
  • Created discussion thread 10 - 18mm : EF, EFS or STM?
    I was looking at a Canon 10-18mm on line and came across that lens listed as EF, EFS and STM. Just as a point of comparison, has anyone used more than one of these? I guess what I really want to ...
  • OK, it is Spring Cleaning time and I want to get rid of these.  The Tripod is about the best studio tripod ever made (in all modesty!) and made in the USA!  The Halliburton case is a large one. ...
  • Created discussion thread Nissin - Or Other - Strobes?
    Majority of my work is shooting events (PR, Corporate and so on) and I have been using Canon 580EX II's with fine results, but they are getting old and I am considering an after market replacement ...
  • Created discussion thread "Hi Tech" Camera Strap?
    Has anyone had any experience with the latest batch of hi-tech camera straps? I mean the springy, streachy ones with all the nice looking padding? It seemed like half the booths at last years ...
