Re: E-M1.2 overexposing by about one stop.

Is it just the display, or are exposed photos also over-exposed? If it's just the display it could be that you have got the Live View Boost option switched on. This brightens the viewfinder in dark...

Re: Do you recognise this place in OZ ?

OK, I'll bite, anything for a free beer even if it is a 24-hour flight and several connecting journeys away.

Re: Rice Fields in Sekinchan, Selangor, Malaysia

Or the big flat tracts of reclaimed land in the Netherlands. Perhaps fertile low-lying land look the same everywhere! Even the architecture looks familiar.

That's a very refreshing attitude Dave, I'm sure a lot of us can relate to it.

Re: Bigma 50-500

Those look pretty good. You must have had decent lighting to get those exposures, even at ISO 1600!

Re: Pen F abstract

Did you know that since the election of Mr. Trump, in the USA you can only buy Parmesan in big chunks? It is all part of the campaign to make America grate again.

Re: Banjukes, Return to the group.

My understanding is that when displaying on screen, the pixels per inch setting is ignored. It just displays 1 pixel of image on 1 pixel of screen. Of course, there is the caveat that some software...

Re: Enjoying the simplicity of the XZ-1
