Re: Tips for camera set-up

I found where to set the levels in settings, what i hadn't realised was to cycle through info whilst composing the picture. I think that then stays as that view next time. I guess i'd never had to...

Re: Panasonic 25MM/1.4 DG Summilux

Funnily enough, I have the box and pouch for this lens, but not the lens. (which was on my camera when it was stolen two years ago).

Re: EM5 with 12-50, 45 f1.8 and grip kit on Amazon for 535 inc

That's not bad when the kit lens and the 45mm are probably 100 each second hand. However I don't think the EM5i has had any significant firmware updates for quite some time.

Re: What is it with Olympus lens prices?

yes - i managed to get the 60mm macro lens for 275 and then got the Olympus 75 cashback. So only 200. Second hand ones go for more than that.

Re: What is it with Olympus lens prices?

I'd imagine it's to do with the weak pound. Back in May the exchange rate GBP/JPY was around 160, today it's 132. So for Olympus Japan to get the same amount of Yen selling their lens, the GBP...

Re: Anyone any experience with smart device car audio?

Indeed, I used to live at the bottom of The Mount (no DAB signal), now live up in Charlotteville, which is quite a bit higher up.

Re: Anyone any experience with smart device car audio?

I used to live surrounded by hills and my first portable dab player wouldn't pick anything up unless I walked about half a mile away.

I then moved house, now have two DAB radios tuned permanently...

Re: Gig guide....

I'd also say learn the manual settings, as gigs can have bright LED lights and the autofocus etc can end up at completely wrong exposures and everything blurred, particularly if it is a bouncy gig!

Do you run a battery down to flat then put in a spare, or put in a freshly charged battery each time you take the camera out, and take...
