Re: The Wrinkled Peach reaches the mature stage.

Thanks Dave. Visually I think the photos are great as they are, the simplicity is very appealing. Including something to give an idea of scale might make it better documentation but reduced the...

Re: EM-1 Shutter sticking closed

Oh dear, sounds like it needs to go to the doctor. Good luck.

Re: EM-1 Shutter sticking closed

Possibly stating the obvious, but have you tried taking the battery out and putting it back in? It might clear it - doesn't mean there isn't problem of course, but it might get you back on the road....

Re: The Wrinkled Peach reaches the mature stage.

Not boring at all. You describe it as an "amazing little thing" - is it really that little? Difficult to get a sense of scale from the photos.

Re: Its Coming

Gosh, that awakened a distant memory. But until I read the Wiki entry I hadn't realised how distant - the film was made in 1976 and i think the original case was in 1974:

Re: 3, 2, 1 or none at all?

1st shot, with 3 ducks, for me - but I would lop off (most of) the dark area at the top left.

Re: Adobe CC updates

I would be tempted to uninstall the printer driver, make sure it's the latest version, and reinstall - less extreme than getting hold of an old version of PS! but you may already have done that, of...

Re: Adobe CC updates

Sorry to hear about your woes, Peter. I haven't had that problem and don't recall seeing any similar descriptions when I was trawling around for info on the problems with the print dialogue box.

Re: Tony Northrup believes micro-four-thirds is dead

One of the small things I like a lot about the E-M1 Mk II is that the battery gauge is much improved. On all the previous Olys I have had it has been so unreliable that for shooting events I would...

Thanks for the explanation Paul, I vaguely remembered something like that but not the detail.

Re: New Olympus Patent: 400mm f4.0 MFT Lens

Exactly. So in what way does it "take away one of the main selling points of the MFT system - portability"?

Yes, it's big. But it is still considerably than the equivalent for 35mm format would be...

Re: New Olympus Patent: 400mm f4.0 MFT Lens

Of course not. If you want f/4 at 400mm it is going to be big, heavy and VERY expensive whatever your sensor size. But you don't have to use that lens for everything, and if you want portable there...

Re: Adobe CC updates

It's the print dialogue, Hec. The previews are (often) not sowing properly - very pixellated, sometimes incomplete. Printer settings (e.g. portrait/landscape) are (often) not showing in the preview....

Re: Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 MSC R Lens

I think there must be a lot of variation between samples of this lens, as some people say they are not impressed by it. I bought one from a forum member and had some good results with it - this is...

Re: Little tuna (FT 300 f/2.0) - 1150 o.n.o.

Wex have one at 841 - (relatively) cheap but it looks as if it has been round the block a few times! But I don't think Wex sell rubbish.

Re: Capturing a scene the old way

I did a compo of about 15 shots from film, I think it came out at 45 inches by 6. Even with that it was a beast working out how to display it with anything more sophisticated than Blu-Tak.

Re: Communal Night-Sky Photography Thread

Phill - your description of the lockup sounds similar to the problems that some of us had with the E-M1 Mark I when it was new. It just seized up under apparently random circumstances, and among the...

Thanks for the link Jim. I've seen that page before but had forgotten about it.

I think that must be what it is, but it didn't match the description. In shape it was a straight line, more like the...

I was up unusually early this Sunday morning and saw something I have never seen before. Out in a stretch of open grassland there was what looked lie rainbow formed by dew in the grass:
