I previously connected the neck strap to the E-M1 MkII (+ PBH) on which is mounted the 300mm/f4, and held the weight by gripping the lens tripod foot.  I don't want to do that any longer so have threaded two Peak Design anchors through a hole on the tripod plate.  The problem is I can't mount the camera on the tripod head as the black cords are in the way. Can anyone recommend a thin plate that can be placed between the lens tripod foot and the tripod plate? Thanks in advance, oh, and I'm...

I had a problem with my (original) E-M1. Every time I clicked the shutter, there was a delay of at least two seconds before I could take the next photos. After the shutter was clicked, a little icon appeared in upper left corner of rear display that seemed to mean "writing to card." The problem was not due to slow SD card: I'm using a 90Mbps card that works just fine in my PEN-F. I slogged through the E-M1's absurdly complex menus looking for a setting to adjust, tried various things, and...

I know its the same resolution as its predecessor but its faster, brighter and overall better. I'm just curious as to how good it is and if increasing would benefit the user at all? Can you see the viewfinders pixels at all in the viewfinder? Or is it so dense you can't see them?

Is the the G9 $1000 better than the G85? Or the GH5 $1500 better? I'm trying to rationalize perhaps, but every time I reach for my credit card on the G9, the little G85 voice in my head says "Dude, I'm right here"  I recently acquired the GX85 and like it a lot, but the G85/G9 form factor has value to me too.  I've also kicked around the E-M1.1 option. I'm not typically an early adopter, but suffer from chronic GAS. I really kind want to settle on some kit and learn it better.  Thoughts?...

I've got the camera set-up so when the Function Lever is in position 2 the front dial should change ISO and the rear dial change WB, i.e. the default settings. However both dials change ISO (or whatever function I set the front dial to do). The only way I can get the rear dial to change WB is to disable the front dial function. In lever position 1 the dials work as they should. I've checked the custom settings and they appear to be set up correctly. Can anyone tell me what setting I've...

No, this is not a cynical wind up for those labouring under dreary skies in the northern hemisphere. When photographing water birds under blue skies, which is quite often, the water always appears more rich, or saturated, in the image than in reality. The first image of the young Aust Grebes 1/2500s, f/8, ISO800 is a good example. Using E-M1.2 and 300 f/4 with 1.4TC the White Balance is Auto. Australasian Grebe young waiting for adults to surface. Water very blue. 1/2500s, f/7, ISO400 1/400s,...

I am currently looking at the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and the Panasonic Lumix G9 for a possible, hopefully near-future upgrade to my E-M5. The goal is, mainly, to get better continuous autofocus. The lens I use most at the moment is the Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8, along with the 1.4x teleconverter. I don't think I will replace it with a Panasonic equivalent for DFD, hence my question: Has anyone tried using continuous autofocus with one of the latest Panasonic cameras, and an Olympus "PRO"...

hey everyone, having a think about the G9, I'm ready to upgrade my gear and have a soft spot for m43 (my father has a oly e5, brother e3 and em1 mkll) anyway, has anyone had a chance to use this camera for long exposures (5 - 20mins)? and does the image "build" on the screen as the exposure is being made? also has anyone been able to compare its long exposure performance to the em1 mkll (I'm interested in both cameras)? I'm also interested to see if the G9 has the same features as the em1 mk2...

Hi, Seems quite a few people here already got their hands on a G9... so - if anyone who also has an EM1.2 can share some initial impressions?  From my perspective, the G9 has a lot of "on the paper" advantages - bigger EVF, USB Charging, Bluetooth phone connectivity, better AFS in low light, top plate LCD, etc. It also plays better with DualIS and other features with Panasonic lenses, so from my perspective it has a huge advantage as it offers its variation of Pro capture with my 100-400...

How fast is the readout speed of the 20MP sensor of the Pen-F? I wan't to try to estimate how severe the rolling shutter effect of the Pen-F is. If you use the electronic shutter the data of a single image takes some time to been read. Faster readout means lower rolling shutter. The OMD EM5 II has a readout speed of 1/20s. The Panasonic GM1 has a readout speed of 1/25s. The OMD EM1 II is said to be twice as fast as the Pen-F. But how fast is this?
