Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

This Common Whitethroat was staking out its territory at Minsmere back in June. I think it was the last one I have seen this year. They haven't been nesting in the usual places near me this year, for...

Re: Olympus Report Lower Mirrorless Sales

Even with the arrival of the new mirrorless cameras from Canon and Nikon I think there will still be a place for m43 equipment. The question is whether there will be sufficient demand to support two...

Re: A Question about Image Stabilization

Thanks for the replies. Yes, it does seem that the lens stabilization switch acts as master controller. With stabilization turned On at the lens it is impossible to turn it Off via the camera menu...

Re: 10th Anniversary of Micro Four Thirds

I didn't know that. It will have to be a bunch of flowers from the petrol station on the way home. :)

Re: Panasonic 100-400 or Olympus 300 pro

WEX are advertising seven used Panasonic 100-400 zooms, including one open box and one refurbished as new. It appears that at least some of them find their way back onto the market after they have...

Re: Today's Bird Keepers

I agree with Dave, the Treecreeper is very good Mark. If they are anything like our UK variety they are extremely animated and tricky to photograph.

Re: A Monochrom(e) Oly?

Do all you mono guys still mourn the passing of black and white television and long for its re-introduction? I bet the licence wouldn't be any cheaper these days. ;)

Re: Pair of Woodpeckers

You are so lucky to get these beautiful birds in your garden. I am very envious: almost as green as your woodpeckers.

Re: Lavender Blue

The grey/green foliage of Lavender always complements the colour of the flowers perfectly. Two lovely, colourful images Mark.

Re: Amazon deal for the m.Zuiko 60mm macro?

No you don't need to hold the dial as the lens will stay at 1:1 until you touch the shutter release button (assuming you are using autofocus.) If you are using manual focus it won't lose 1:1 until...

Re: OM-1 miniatures!

That is a good idea Ian. I don't need one as I found mine up the other day and a very cute little item it is too. It's something that no self respecting OM user should be without. Hopefully it will...

Re: A Curlew and her chick.

Another splendid shot Dave. It seems strange seeing Curlews surrounded by heather. On the rare occasions when I see them they are in muddy estuaries.

A lovely set Paul. I rather like number five. How long did you have to wait for the figure to walk past? They have obviously put a lot of thought into the appearance of the art shop. It looks great....
