Glad it's not just me then! Perhaps they'll fix it.

Re: v3 Firmware for mk2 - updates for mk2, m1x and lenses

I have updated my camera and was keen to try the C-AF Centre Prioity setting. However, it doesn't seem to work. When there is a subject under the centre point, the AF still jumps off to other points...

Re: Small AF target.

I find that the smaller single point actually works better than the larger point so yes, I think that you can assume it makes no negative difference. My experience of the better performance of the...

Re: Hand held hi res - It's fabulous !

I forgot all about the new EVF optics when I went to try and it was only after I had left the shop that I realized that I hadn't noticed any difference!

Re: E-M1X preview sessions

Well, I thought the weight was okay whilst I was holding the body only. Then I thought it was a bit heavy once I'd attached the 300mm. it's 5.5 lbs vs 4.5lbs for the MkII and I did notice the...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I agree. I pretty much only use all points for the situations that you described. But maybe the E-M1X is better in this respect.


There are a couple of new settings on the E-M1X too:

The Motorbike Test


I have had a look at the motorbike test in the same Japanese review. This one used small single point in the centre and was shot at f/7.1 with the 300mm f/4. Most of the time,...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Acceptable sharpness does depend very much on how you are viewing the image and conventional circle of confusion calculations make assuptions about that. With my wildlife shots, I find that I am...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

The graphs plotted with StepCount are not greatly different to those in metres, other than the left axis being reversed. Although FocusStepCount is very much not a linear relationship to distance,...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

StepCount is the poistion of the focus elements in terms of focus motor steps. I assume that 1 step is the smallest incremental move that the lens can make. It is essentially the internal units by...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

The reported focus distances may not be accurate in absolute terms but they are in relative terms between frames and they do corrolate directly with a related parameter called FocusStepCount. My...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

That's a great review with good examples. Well found!


I downloaded the C-AF test example sequences of the herons flying and luckily, they contain the full Exif. As I am interested in whether the...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I am somewhat shocked to see that the 25-point AF group is listed as a differentiator between the E-M1 MkII and the E-M1X which suggests that they are not even going to give us that in a firmware...

Unhappy Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Jebus! Not nearly as revolutionary as I was expecting. No real song and dance about the C-AF system. Many things seem to be the same as the MkII.


Call me puzzled. :confused:


But lets hope...

Re: A Question about Image Stabilization

One conclusion that I have come to for bif is that focus accuracy trumps almost everything else. This has a number of implications:




The camera focuses better with a faster maximum aperture...

Re: C-AF - tight/loose

That's not quite what I meant. Your test shows that there is a delay when you deliberately move the camera between subjects at different distances. That is not something that I try to do in my...

Re: C-AF - tight/loose

What we don't seem to know is how the C-AF Sensitivity setting affects the ability of the camera to keep a moving subject in focus. Some say +2 is more accurate. My experience is it doesn't make any...
