Re: silent shutter - underexposure

I get the points that have been made, but when you're using aperture priority, isn't it reasonable to expect some kind of warning if it knows it will underexpose?

Re: silent shutter - underexposure

silent shutter - underexposure

Hi. A tech question if I may.

I understand that when I select electronic / silent shutter mode, it won't expose for more than 1/8th of a second.

I find too often when I'm on my common...

Re: Zuiko 50-200 recommendation

Yes, great lens for IQ (though not as compact or lightweight as some). I love mine.

(Little surprised to read that it supports pro capture as I think that's a new feature on E-M1 Mark II which I...

Re: A Guide To The Olympus MYSET Function

The first problem with MySets is the over-use of the ambiguous word "set", and the easily confused dialogues to store and to load a set. The dialogue really ought to use words like LOAD and SAVE. The...

Re: EM1 Mk1 Body only

Such a shame that such a good camera - top of the range Oly until 18 months ago - should not command a greater used value. I don't have a use for another body, but I'd hope someone would.

Re: Wanted 60mm macro

H have both. 60mm is considerably more compact than FT 50mm (+MMF-3) and focuses much more quickly and reliable (and quietly). Both have such excellent IQ I'd hesitate to compare them. 50mm is a...

Re: Amateur Photography Article About Street Photography

Re: Focusing, for over 50 years I've been getting it wrong.

I don't have E-M1 II but I have a couple of thoughts occur to me which might be relevant to someone if not to you.

Focus/Recompose was standard practice on film cameras so it can't be that bad. ...
