Re: Wangaratta Camera Club Photo Shoot #01/2019

[/QUOTE]
Thanks OM, Mark, I'm sure they don't need the likes of me to be setting a good example. It is I who benefit from theirs. They are all very friendly and have made me feel comfortable.

Re: Photoshop Ai enhanced RAW

I come late to the table on this but for the little it's worth, the strap texture on the left looks slightly sharper … but then maybe not, taking a second look … *erm … if there's a difference it's...

Re: Wangaratta Camera Club Photo Shoot #01/2019

Thanks Mark, FYI, I've added the settings beneath the last two images; I've no idea as to why exif data isn't embedded. As for the "unnatural light" it is what it is; white balance on auto,...

Optically, or politically, Larry? :D Either way, just my bias! *yes

Wangaratta Camera Club Photo Shoot #01/2019

It was a balmy summer’s evening yesterday for the second club meeting of the year. We set out from the club room 7:00pm for a walking photo tour of the town.
The exercise was to shoot with a...

Re: My New toy, MMF-3

Thanks Ros and Larry. It was you Larry who advised me well to use the 12-40 pro when I texted you a few hours before the meet, it was the right choice. Only a dozen or so members showed up for the...

Re: My New toy, MMF-3

My local camclub meeting tonight is a walkabout photo tour. We are asked to use a 18-55mm lens (I'm sure that means Canikoners).
I'll use either the 12-40mm F2.8 pro, or the 12-60mm SWD, which is...

Re: M5 Mkii + MMF-3 + SWD = FUN

For bird photography, Yes. Based on the images above, and others taken on yesterday's shoot, that was my conclusion. However, on the previous day I found the 12-60 SWD's performance much better for...

M5 Mkii + MMF-3 + SWD = FUN

Having yesterday taken the 12-60 SWD for a run, today shooting with the 50-200 SWD was fun
Certainly not in the same league as the 40-150mm F2.8 pro, I think the 50-200 SWD will be just for show

Re: My New toy, MMF-3

I'm bet you used it a lot on your iconic walks, Huw. 12-60 is perfect for hiking and bushwalking.

Re: My New toy, MMF-3

Hobart has the lowest annual rainfall of any capital city in Oz. It has a low humidity climate,(unlike lens moulding FNQ and Brissy! :D)

Re: Losing it!

The SWD 12-60 provides the 12mm gear gap needed only for landscape and architecture, both of which are slow moving targets.
Fast AF is therefore irrelevant. MMF-3 was a prudent solution to busting...

Re: My New toy, MMF-3

Hi Otto, we cross posted so I've only just read your reply.
I have tried the SWD 50-200 on the M5Mkii, as you say, it is much slower than the SWD 12-60 and needs manual focussing.
In fact, the...

Re: My New toy, MMF-3

Thanks Ross. I took the RRP price of the 12-40 pro as quoted on Olympus' own website. I know that it can be bought for less.
Regarding the SWD 12-60, it focused fast and accurately on my CD-AF all...

Re: Losing it!

Thanks Larry but I'm done buying any more kit at this stage. As said in my latest thread, MMF-3 has repatriated the SWD 12-60 F2.8 for use with the M5Mkii.

My New toy, MMF-3

Disparate images I know, but these were shot with the M5 Mkii + SWD 12-60mm F2.8 using the MMF-3 lens converter.
The MMF-3 cost a mere 175.00AUD, whereas the 12-40mm F2.8 pro costs around...

Re: Losing it!

Thanks Larry. My only disappointment with MMF-3 is that it's incompatible with TC4.
, but never mind, it still saves me forking out 1200.00AUD for the 12-40 F2.8 pro! *yes

That was very well done, Barrie. Your well met friend and his charges certainly are in colour sync with the setting.

Losing it!

Not much to show from this morning's daily. After shooting this bird
whose name I forget, the dreaded "Empty Battery" screen popped up.
Then along came a guy with a Nikon sporting a dirty great...
