Re: Using the P mode?

I have never taken a single photo in "P" mode - ever on any of my 10 digital cameras.

Re: August Photo Challenge: Drama

Sharks are not the vicious killers that has so often been portrayed in the press blu-by-u. Many are inquisitive and like to "check out" divers, others are extremely timid and can be difficult to get...

Re: August Photo Challenge: Drama

Thank you to all for viewing and voting for my shark. We had around 20 mins with the shark, she was very inquisitive with all the divers around her. Unfortunately, we ran out of gas long before she...

Personally, I wouldn't want to see Olympus go FF if it meant that m4/3rds was going to take a back seat or, worse, get dropped.

The big attraction for me for the m4/3rds system is the compact...

Re: One touch white balance in Movie mode

I'm starting to realise the limitations of shooting video with the E-M1.

It appears that in Movie mode there isn't the option to set the AEL/AFL button to focus - it's disabled in the menu. Not...

Re: Lens protection / Filter

Lenses come with a front cap, that is for protecting the lens. I never put anything on the front except polarisers and ND filters.

I recently visited the Cotswolds Wildlife Park and I took the 40-150mm, 300mm f/4 and the MC-14 with my E-M1 mk1. The 40-150mm + MC-14 were the best combination for most of the animals. Absolutely...

Re: Good scenes maybe behind you.

I always look at the view behind with sunsets. Quite often there are far better colours in the reflections in the clouds than there are looking into the sun.
