Re: 4/3 35mm Macro lens purchase.

If the 35mm lens is cheap enough then go for it. It is difficult with lighting for 1:1 macro, especially since the front element moves for focussing, which means it is fully extended for maximum...

Re: EM1 mk2 sd cards

That sounds like a good price, but be sure it is genuine though (packed & sealed in original packaging etc).

Re: Comparing the new 12-40 Pro with the 12-60 SWD on an E-M1

I took photos of my back lawn with buildings in it I noticed the distortion in it with the 12-40 lens but when I adjusted the raw file in Capture One & took the Distortion back to 0% from 100% then I...

Re: EM1 mk2 sd cards

Here is one of the better frames of lightning using Pro Capture (adjusted with Capture One). I would not have got it except for Pro Capture.

Re: EM1 mk2 sd cards

I have mine set for stills for the fast card & video for the slower as it is sufficient for that but ProCapture does require or at least benefit from fast storage, especially when saving both JPEG &...

Re: EM1 mk2 sd cards

I recently tried it with lightning strikes with some success. While holding the shutter button at half way periodically in the direction of the strikes, as soon as the strike occurs I fully pressed...

Re: Comparing the new 12-40 Pro with the 12-60 SWD on an E-M1

The E-M5 may be showing some shutter shock perhaps & why I usually use both E-M1's with Anti-Shock on, plus the latter Mk II will show a little more detail, but I haven't used my 12-40 lens much yet...

Re: EM1 mk2 sd cards

I got mine (32GB) as a bonus from Olympus last year when I bought the E-M1 Mk II & I agree, it is worthwhile while using Pro Capture or else there is a longer delay (with 95MB/s) while all those...

Re: Comparing the new 12-40 Pro with the 12-60 SWD on an E-M1

I bought one in early 2016 at a bargain price, but then a year later the aperture blades started sticking (& eventually stayed stuck) so I decided to go for the 12-40 f2.8 lens while on sale after...

Re: Viewing RAW images in Windows 10 Explorer

That's strange since Windows 7 shows them OK, but maybe it's because I have the Olympus codec installed too. *shrug

A Tradition on New Year's Day, Down Under.

A tradition on New Year's Day (at night) for ABC TV viewers (for some anyhow) is to watch a broadcast of the past year's video of The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
So, being a traditionalist, I...

Good on you John & thanks.



Thanks Mark. Some reasonable (warm) temperatures ahead but not next weekend. Sunday is forecast to be 41 degrees here so I hate to think what it will be elsewhere.

Re: Is it worthwhile repairing a 12-60 SWD lens?

I've taken the easy way out & took advantage of Boxing Day specials & now have the 12-40 f2.8 lens. It is sitting on the E-M1 & the 40-150 on the E-M1 Mk II & have both cameras gripped & back in my...

A few from the garden on a damp Christmas day.

Christmas Day was a little damp downunder & cool (22 C), so I took a few shots around the garden.

Re: Can't get TTL to work with FL36R & E-M1ii

That's a shame, because it produced the symptoms you described. Hope you find the reason & it isn't a faulty flash like one of mine or more so, hope there is no issue with the camera.
