Re: EM-1 Lock-up Information

Those cards make a huge difference as well when you get back from a shoot and download the photos onto your computer. So much quicker.

Re: EM-1 Lock-up Information

Interesting. I wonder now if that firmware update had a fix for this in the first place as it was not listed.

Re: EM-1 Lock-up Information

Chandler's Ford.

I had suggested the same to Chris before. Could be something in the software that is overworking the cameras processor at times.

Re: EM-1 Lock-up Information

Interesting Chevvyf1.

I see you live in Winchester as well. We live very very close! Ducati's as well. Had a friend who has since moved abroad from this area with a tri-colour.

Re: Lightroom RC 5.3 is now available

Re: Lightroom RC 5.3 is now available

Super reds have gone which is good but skin colour (caucasian) is dreadful. Everyone looks jaundiced. Not good... not good at all.

The discounted price on Amazon with the 12-40mm is not being sold by Amazon but by EC CRESCENT *Worldwide Shipping* which is not a UK vendor. We have not been side tracked.

Re: E-M1 (and E-P5, apparently) - IS anomalies
