Re: "That back-to-front lens hood" - Post yours here.

There are a range of '3-In-One Professional' products including Silicone or Dry Lubricant (with PTFE) made by WD40 (https://www.wd40.com/products) as seen here. http://www.3inone.com.au/products I...

Re: "That back-to-front lens hood" - Post yours here.

I think it can benefit being used indoors with some overhead lighting too, apart from the physical protection (which can be a greater risk with door posts & chairs that jump out in front of you).

Re: "That back-to-front lens hood" - Post yours here.

I think it's worth the mechanical protection to always use it. While I was using the 12-60 SWD lens I needed to park the hood to fit it in the bag & I would imagine the 12-100 would be similar in...

Re: Panasonic 100-400

It looks rather good Larry. I'm torn between saving for the 300 F4 Pro or this lens. I say "saving" because my better half has made it clear I won't be buying anything this year, but I'm hoping I...

Re: Wangaratta Camera Club Photo Shoot #01/2019

Maybe, or they got it with the kit & that's where it stays. *shrug

"That back-to-front lens hood" - Post yours here.

As mentioned in another thread (http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?p=472567#post472567), users of certain DSLRs seem to not have a clue what a lens hood is there for & often can be seen...

Re: Wangaratta Camera Club Photo Shoot #01/2019

A nice set Mark, but I have to delve into my evil sense of humour & point out the user of that Canon camera with the lens hood parked back to front on the lens. It would seem the Canon was bought for...

Re: Updated Olympus lens "roadmap"

It’s possible the doubling of that range may mean it will come with Sync IS & cost a fair bit more.

Ideally, it maybe worthwhile if reduced in price in a kit, but with which body?

Re: Freezing issues

Then you'll only get to write at up to 95MB/s & not 300MB/s if you put an SDHC II card in slot 1 which (95MB/s) is rather slow for Pro Capture.

Re: Freezing issues

First, assign the SD card 1 & 2 writing (Menu H1 Card Slot Settings) such as SD 1 with an SDHC II (300MB/s) for 'stills' & video to SD 2 that only writes at SDHC I (95MB/s) speed & not writing to...

Re: Can you save/store AF point by orientation?

There might be a possibility for the E-M1 Mk II (especially as they are also bringing a limited amount of Silver models this year), but nothing will come for the E-M1 except compatibility updates now.

Re: My New toy, MMF-3

Tonight I would stick to using the 12-40 Pro lens as it will perform better in the lower light being a constant F2.8 & focus faster with CD-AF. The 12-60 SWD lens, as good as it is is F4 at 60mm (I...

Re: Olympus Workspace - Replacement for OV3

To use an E-M1 Mk II the user is expected to be an advanced amateur or professional, ;) therefore Scene Mode should not be necessary. :rolleyes: *shrug

Re: Olympus Workspace - Replacement for OV3

You may need to uncheck the GPU selection in Options.

Re: My New toy, MMF-3

I had to look it up for myself. :eek: I don't think that lens ever sold for that amount, but I notice one keen seller says the RRP was $999.00 & selling it for $849.00. That's a bit steep when most...

There is one little issue when making a portrait crop of a selected format (4:3 or 3:2 etc) from a horizontal image as the crop will jump back to horizontal orientation.

It was announced on the 24th Jan, but I don't think that is the release date

Re: My New toy, MMF-3

Nice images Mark. The SWD lenses don't work as well on the non PD-AF models although the 12-60 seems to manage it OK. I don't know who would charge you $1200 for the 12-40 F2.8 lens because it should...

Re: Hld-9

I'm hoping the MC20 will be nice with the 40-150. That will keep my bag lighter with just two lenses (12-40 & 40-150) with the MC14 & MC20.
