Re: So who actually has an E-M1x?

Adding: Great idea though, I might just get one, and a low camping stool as well *chr

Re: Sensor Cleaning

If you don't power the camera on the sensor will wobble around as you clean it. I always switch the camera on and it remains locked firmly.

Re: Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....

Tried again and now got this:

"We apologize, but an unknown error has occurred in the forums. <p/>This error has been logged. "

Re: Old Town Harbour, Raw vs JPEG

Going back to the original post by Internaut. If you follow the links to the two photos on Flickr they are both JPEGs, complete with the EXIF data visible. I rest my case.

Re: Old Town Harbour, Raw vs JPEG

The raw file is a pure data file, it is not an image. The raw file has a JPEG "side-car" file attached which is what you see in camera. To see the image a JPEG or TIFF file has to be created.

Re: Old Town Harbour, Raw vs JPEG

How can you show a Raw file here? It would have to be a JPEG to post it in the first place. So both images are JPEGs :confused:

Re: Monochrome raw files

Raw files are exactly what comes off the sensor, which includes colour. If any processing takes place then the result is either a TIFF or JPEG.

Re: HDEW..Ridiculous price.

I've bought a lot of Olympus and Nikon gear from HDEW and had absolutely superb service. Saved a lot of money with them.

Re: RAW and jpeg file saving query?

I know, it's one of those things that bugs me. Like "shutter speed" and "graduated filters".

Re: RAW and jpeg file saving query?

What's "RAW"? Is it an acronym, what does it stand for?

Re: Lens for weddings

Well, yes I've just seen the posts but I have the 12-40mm f/2.8 but it's the aperture I want for the shallow DoF. Also, I prefer to buy only the top Pro lenses. :)
