Re: Photography Clubs

It is shame there are still some clubs, which are stuck in a rut of elitism of a few members.
I suppose I have been lucky to join a club which promotes photography for all. We have members with...

Re: Have you or are you thinking of going mirrorless with Micro Four Thirds?

I have a different route to share, having been an Olympus user for many years OM10 through to OM4. I went digital with E-20P then E-500 to E-5. With the E-5 I had 90-250, 35-100 etc so I was used to...

Re: Vulcan's Last Flight Tour Of The UK

Graham I know its not usually an issue, I don't mind what people use. Got disillusioned with the C-AF on E-M1 and bought a Nikon for my sport and aircraft. Still have and use my E-M1.

Re: Is C-AF actually improved with v3.0?

I have to agree with your point regarding the E-5, I still use mine as the focusing is more consistent.
E-M1 promised so much but it hasn't delivered.
I've almost got to the final straw with...

Re: Is C-AF actually improved with v3.0?

No very close for the take off I was on a perimeter road outside the airfield. For the last two I probably further away than the average air show crowd line.
Another chance today, day two of the...

Re: Is C-AF actually improved with v3.0?

Today I tried out some different settings E-M1 & 75-300 mm m4/3. I was going to try the 90-250 mm maybe tomorrow as the forecast isn't so good therefore the extra few stops should help. I tried the...

Re: Is C-AF actually improved with v3.0?

Tordan, Your experience with the E-M1 is very similar to mine. Last weekend I was photographing motorsport, using 75-300 mm, 50-200 mm SWD, 35-100 mm & 90-250 mm. I used C-AF Low sequential as high...

Re: EU Clamps Down on Air Pollution

Re: EU Clamps Down on Air Pollution

Not just JLR many manufacturers have fuel burning heaters installed, VAG, MB, etc. It is true modern engines can struggle to produce enough heat to warm the passenger compartment.

Re: Having ago old school-film

I agree with you that spray and pray doesn't work. As I have the chance to use film I decided to give it a try again. I try not to but as I do a lot of motorsport, it is all to easy to take...

Re: Having ago old school-film

Steve, The gain for me is although I could do it will digital, I want to force myself to consider each shot. You may only have 36 shot for the day!

Re: Having ago old school-film

OM707 isn't that bad, typically Olympus got into auto-focus late, well other than not having auto-focus the OM4 was a great camera. I had two.
I find the OM707 handles OK. auto-focus isn't ground...

Re: Oystercatchers caught in the act

Nice set, I like the good detail on the second one.
We see them quite regularly on a local disused quarry. They don't seem too bother by you being there.

Re: Is C-AF actually improved with v3.0?

I can't say that I have notice any difference since V.3, Shooting motorsport I use C-AF but have used mainly L-FPS as it is supposed to re focus for each shot, and therefore I probably will not see...
