Re: What next?

I had trouble shifting mine, too. In the end I converted it to IR, replacing my E-M5 MkI IR body. (Now I just have to shift that).

Re: WiFi File transfer

Panasonic cameras can do this without any issue... I started a thread in this very forum wondering why Olympus has been less forthcoming with feature upgrades (than they were for the MkI) and...

Re: Features for firmware update??

The Panasonic implementation seems to have little problem with sending raw files with little lag. A quick calculation indicates that a 20MB image should only take about 4 seconds at 54Mbps which is...

Features for firmware update??

Slightly disappointed that Olympus haven't been adding functionality with regular firmware updates as they did with the original E-M1.

Two things I'd like to see are:

1. Better control over...

Re: Adobe CC updates

The way to achieve what you want is to define User Templates in the Print module. Each template saves all the settings used... paper size, paper profile, colour management settings, page layout etc....

Re: In-camera multiple 'additive' exposures

Failing a firmware update that adds this functionality, the only way to do that with an Olympus camera today is in post-processing. The aforementioned Valda Bailey isn't keen on that - she likes to...

Re: In-camera multiple 'additive' exposures

Note that this isn't the same as multi-exposure. The first two images that are combined only contribute 50% to the image in total. This means images 1 and 2 provide 25% each, while image 3 provides...

Re: In-camera multiple 'additive' exposures

Live composite is not the same as multiple exposure, I'm afraid... only brighter parts of subsequent images are copied into the base image. The only multi-exposure option available is to shoot 2...

Re: E-M5 MkI converted to IR

Ok... looks like there's nothing of interest here. I think 400 is a fair price, so no further reductions. I'll try selling it elsewhere.

Thanks for looking and for the interesting exchange.

Re: E-M5 MkI converted to IR

Always seems to work for me. Can't think why it wouldn't... the internal 665nm filter cuts anything with a shorter wavelength but lets longer wavelengths through. A 720nm screwed into the lens cuts...

Re: E-M5 MkI converted to IR

Fascinating... didn't realise shooting without a filter would even give something usable. Thanks for the tip.

Re: E-M5 MkI converted to IR

Thanks for the corroboration.

I wouldn't think you use a full-spectrum conversion without either an IR, UV or visible bandpass filter in place so the lens wouldn't have to focus the full range...

Can't post pictures of the camera until later. It's in excellent condition though - very well looked after. I'll post some later today if I can.

Regarding focusing, I don't believe adjustment is...

Upgraded two bodies today. Irritatingly, although the updater did save/restore my settings, the touch screen was re-enabled (first thing I do is switch it off) when the process was complete.

Yes, quite difficult. I took a couple during the 2015 eclipse and I think there were 12 stops of difference in the exposure.
