Re: Panasonic 100-400 Photo Show saga. Buyers warning.

I've had this lens from new and not had any problems with the bayonet fitting, but I have read about others having similar problems. I did have a problem with the foot coming loose which I fixed...

Re: The Photography Show - PODCAST!

Thanks for posting those deals Ian.

One of the Panasonic deals is too good to be true, but I have seen that someone did buy it.

You can get the 200mm f2.8 for £1954, but for £2099 you get...

Re: The Photography Show - PODCAST!

Please could someone post a photo of the show offer prices? It seems that Panasonic have some incredible deals from what I've read elsewhere. I was surprised to hear that there is only £100 off the...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

For Barr1e: Yesterday I took about 1900 photos over about 5 hours with GPS on. Currently I'm only fitting one battery. I replaced that when it was down to about 35% and at the end of the day I was...

Re: Testing Airplane mode for birds

Not in this case, it only works with single target or small target.

Normally I don't go out in weather like that to photograph birds and usually I would be more prepared. From experience, when...

Testing Airplane mode for birds

Typical new camera weather! It's been great for days and now it's dull and raining. I was keen to try out the new Airplane tracking mode on the EM1X and see how it well it worked for birds. I was...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Got mine today and have spent a lot of time setting it up. Found one possible small bug - I have C2 set up for BIF, if I invoke it from the dial it uses specified CAF sensitivity, but if I use the...

Re: Reviews:

It is a fantastic lens, but it looks like Olympus have a 100-400mm on the plan, so it might be worth waiting for that.

Re: Olympus 150 - 400

The 150-400 is probably less than 1 foot long and the 100-400 is tiny for what it is.

Re: M1X..Harsh review, realistic perhaps?

It's a pity that they didn't have time to add birds and other animals (including humans) at launch. That would have made a much bigger splash! One thing I have learned about Olympus is that you have...

Re: M1X..Harsh review, realistic perhaps?

To repeat what I said on another forum:

He says "In continuous AF, my only issue is that itís sometimes difficult to see the autofocus point as you pan with a subject. But with a PRO grade lens,...

Re: Built in X2 TC

It just crops the centre part of the image and then upsizes it to 20mp. Can work OK for images for the web etc. but I wouldn't rely on it if you need more resolution. You can do the same thing in...

Re: Updated Olympus lens "roadmap"

In the Pro section it shows 'Bright Prime Lenses' with a band that seems to go from about 12mm to 60mm. That could be 2 lenses, one at each end.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I guess the production firmware hasn't been out for long and people are busy testing in the background. It should be available to end users in the next two weeks so we should see reports soon.
