Re: Mac User & newbie - MacPhun?

I use Macphun Snapheal and Noisless on my iMac. The Snapheal is a very useful tool for erasing, healing and cloning, generally easier to use than these facilities in LR. It also has adjustment...

Re: Glen Muick 2

Wonderful shots. Until four years ago I spent at least a week and sometimes much more in this area every year and have such fond memories. I remember once watching, and eventually joining, the local...

Re: Casual birding with the EM-1 + Canon EF 400/5.6

Excellent detail Tord. The 400 f5.6 is still my favourite lens and I achieved some amazing shots with the E-M1 and MF. This lens was originally designed in 1993 I believe and was never expensive,...

Re: EM1 focusing accuracy?

I used my EF 400 f5.6 often on the E-M1, MF of course, and was always amazed by the detail I could get. There was a slight loss of contrast at full aperture but easily corrected in PP. With the...

Re: EM1 focusing accuracy?

I found that one of the main issues with small birds is the size of the single point, even the small single point. I certainly noticed this when moving over from the E5 to the E-M5 and subsequently...

Re: Is C-AF actually improved with v3.0?

Most of the birds I take in flight are in view for only a couple of seconds so tracking is not the main issue but acquisition is. On the E-M1 I struggled to acquire with CAF on which is why I only...

Re: Something different

Apparently Otters don't accumulate body fat, which is why they have to eat so much especially in Scottish waters! An Otter I photographed this year in Wester Ross was showing it's ribs but I was...

Re: Oly 300 f4 spoiler?

That's an issue with the reduced size and weight associated with M4/3. Even with cutting edge design you still get to the point that larger aperture telephoto lenses will eventually become too...

Re: An unhelpful comment?

I've used Olympus, Canon, Panasonic, Fuji, Leica, Voigtlander, Minox , Yashica , Ricoh and Rollei and the best camera IMO is my iPhone - because it's always with me!

Re: the 60mm f2.8 macro my thoughts

when I received my 60mm macro I was very pleased with the sharp results I was getting. Most of my photography is close up of insects, mainly the larger species, so is not macro in the true (1:1)...

Re: Is C-AF actually improved with v3.0?

Sounds like a useful tip except portrait orientation when panning a BIF makes life even more difficult. Again we seem to be still searching for the compromise that makes the equipment work for us, it...

Re: Get those shutter speeds up.

I tend to agree. I have for some time used a non IS 400mm lens on my Canon and never went below 1/640. Now I have a 600mm stabilised lens I still stick to 1/640 or faster. The resultant high ISO with...

Re: E-M1 not vs, but also D750.

The IQ obtained from my EM1 compared to my Canon 7DII is for my purposes very similar, I have done many comparisons with different lenses and subjects. Where the Canon scores for me is in AF...

Re: E-M1 not vs, but also D750.

The two images aren't comparable as the DOF is huge on the E-M1 compared to the Nikon. The Nikon image also has other OOF problems, I could get a much better image from my iPhone so something went...

Re: Format choice...4:3 or 3:2.

For my main interest of wildlife photography 4:3 is more useful than 3:2 so many of my images taken on my Canon 7DII are reduced to nearer that of the E-M1.

Re: Lumsdale waterfalls

These are all excellent shots Phil but I am afraid that I'm in the minority in not liking long exposures for waterfalls.

My big gripe with the Beeb is their practice of moving popular presenters around many programmes/series on subjects they have little technical knowledge of. I don't believe a good presenter on Blue...

Re: Macro..Sacrifice quality for working distance?

Undoubtedly the 60mm is a superb lens IQ wise but the shorter working distance over a 150mm or even 300mm can be an issue in the field where you often have to get down and dirty for the smaller...
