Re: Olympus 1.4x Tele Converter EC-14

To state the obvious, it will only work with 4/3 lenses, not Micro-4/3. If it works well with a particular lens on a 4/3 body there is no reason at all why it shouldn't on M4/3. And in practice I can...

Re: BTCC at Thruxton 2019

Look like a day well spent, well done Toby. Could be the start of an expensive obsession though!

Re: Sony RX100

And .... it is small. Which makes it nice and portable but might be a problem for people with big hands. Even my stubby little fingers end up pressing the wrong button sometimes.

Re: Sony RX100

I've been running a Mark III for a few years. Within its limitations it can produce quite good images and I'm quite pleased with it, but wouldn't use it for anything mission-critical.

Re: Concrete Jungle

I think the third is by some way the strongest of the three. The first two give a good impression of the places but, for me at least, the third has something extra going on. Maybe it is because there...

Thanks Barr1e. Having spent many hours applying my backside to the things and only seeing the bits that stick up out of the water, that's really interesting.

Re: Photoshop Ai enhanced RAW

If there is a difference, it looks very marginal to me and I wouldn't like to choose which one was "better". I had a little play with it on files from various cameras and didn't notice any worthwhile...

Re: Night Views from Olympus Sydney balcony

I'm with Aussie Mark on this - the first shot works really well. It's not just a night shot, the composition fits together nicely and it has a great atmosphere.
