Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

A few from the great weather we had recently. Still loving the 60mm macro. I use it a lot. Not just macro.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Well there's no right or wrong. It's a creative choice. It accurately reflects what I saw - gorgeous light and pastel shades. Out of interest I asked a couple of professional photographers I know and...

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Currently I don't own one. The MacBook Pro was calibrated but not for a while. Anyway I've taken a look at the Bee pic on two different iMacs and iPads and I think it looks good. Exactly the look I...

I believe mine is. Is yours? ;-) These were processed on my MacBook Pro. Will check on my new iMac when I get home.

I've asked for other opinions on these photographs and one agreed with you but...

Each to their own. It's how interpret the sunshine we had. Everything had a very high key feel and I wanted to reflect that.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

I'm not a birder at all and know very little about them. Sorry! My wife is a birder though if that helps :-) Anyway, I traded in my E-M5 for a mk1 E-M1, mainly for macro. I was intrigued by the all...

Re: Duracell BLN-1 battery

True. I think the takeaway from this is to only use the Olympus charger for the Olympus battery. If you want a fully charged third party battery anyway. I'm really just echoing what others have found...

Re: Duracell BLN-1 battery

Thought I'd measure the voltages after a full charge in the Olympus charger. The Olympus battery had 8.6v, Ex Pro White 8.22v, Duracell 7.93v.

I then used a third party charger with the Ex Pro and...

Re: Duracell BLN-1 battery

Charges fine in the Olympus charger. Do I need to be careful with third party USB chargers? One thing I've noticed is they seem to charge a little longer than the Olympus charger. I'm not sure if...

Re: Duracell BLN-1 battery

Good point. There's nothing in the literature to say it needs the Duracell charger. The only reference to a charger is a recommendation to use the device's own charger. And to use the battery only...

Duracell BLN-1 battery

I haven't seen this one mentioned on any forums. Thought I'd give it a go as I've tried various third party batteries including ExPro and never been impressed. At least this one has the Duracell...

That's exactly my experience with MPB. I've used them a few times and they're a bit sloppy. Sometimes there's the odd thing missing and even on occasions the odd thing added! I've always found their...

Re: Back again

The Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro has been great. Really enjoying this lens. I also stick on the Raynox diopter for some shots. I try not to drink too much coffee beforehand :D

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Some of the last shots with my E-M5. I now have an E-M1 mk1 after selling the E-M5. I'm always a generation behind! I'll probably purchase a mk2 in 3-4 years :D

Re: Actuations

I usually sell my gear on the forums but part exchanging with a company like MPB is tempting sometimes. Especially when they pay for delivery both ways. Also the six month warranty is not too bad.
