Re: 40-150mm Pro

I find the 40-150 +/- teleconverter really useful for quite a few subjects - especially field sports (rugby, hockey etc), canoeing and motorsports.

The 300 is way too long, and the 75-300 or...

Re: Any good tutorials for BIF settings?

We’re already seeing variation in what we all do (although some things are pretty consistent, like shutter speeds) which leads me to suspect that practice +++ with whatever settings one chooses is...

Re: Any good tutorials for BIF settings?

Errrrm, no pressure then... :)

Re: Thinking of a Filofax

Shortly before he retired, one of my most Luddite colleagues lost his Filofax.

He’d built it up over the years in to a 3” thick pack of resources and aides memoires, full of little gems that he...

Re: Pansonic Leica 15mm F1.7

My standard version focuses fast and well on the M1ii in all modes, Paul.

E-M10 mkii battery options? [BLS-50]

Please can anyone offer any experience on good alternative batteries for the E-M10 mkii? The original is the BLS-50, which comes at the standard approx. 50 quid from the usual suspects.

Re: Pansonic Leica 15mm F1.7

I agree with what’s been said about the 15: it was developed to be very compact and to fit the GM1 and 5 without extending below their base plate (and so interfering with the camera sitting level on...

Yes, I do set default folders in applications, but moving 'Pictures' etc I hadn't done, and this will be useful.

Re: E-M10ii - £299 at Amazon

Yes, mine’s being delivered today from SRS.

With the cash back it’s such a good deal I’m going to get it IR converted instead of a second hand Panny GF6 I was considering.

Re: Nik Collection by DxO is back

Does it still work in standalone mode?

I presume this version will work with the latest Mac screens, which I believe wouldn’t display the previous free version properly.

The OM1 - 4 were indeed major updates, with all sorts of innovations and developments between each model (especially between the 1 to 2).

Interesting to think about the differences in expenditure...

Re: L-Bracket for the OM-D E-M1 MKII

I can't find the ProMaster in the UK and I can't find a report of whether it fouls the battery door, ports or screen.

I'm still v happy with my Novoflex 'universal', BTW.

Re: Pro-Capture Archery shots

That's interesting - I've only used Pro Capture a few times, and for nothing as fast as an arrow, so it had crossed my mind it might have issues. I guess if one's using it for an arrow with the...
