Quarter Moon on a cloudy night

Last night (Tuesday) as the moon was getting lower in the sky I thought it looked interesting with the thin clouds partly masking it, so here it is.

Re: Easy lens changing

If you have anything with it spilt on, try a hair dryer on it & notice how it softens (with a knife or other sharp implement), but maybe it has been 5 minute Araldite. I can pick it off as it does,...

Re: Easy lens changing

I hate it when some home repairer uses epoxy resin to glue in a violin neck. At least it softens with heat (hairdryer) & I can remove it, but I doubt that sort of heat would soften the glue enough in...

Re: Easy lens changing

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Maybe. He did say earlier this year there were no plans that he knew of for an E-M5 Mk III, but hopefully that has changed now, however he was saying a PEN-F Mk II will come, especially since it's a...

Re: Write protect on OM-D E-M1 Mark ii

If it's an 'old' card then it is probably time to 'retire' it. ;)

Re: Does picture mode 3 (Vivid) improve AF?

With that theory, then increasing the contrast may improve focus capture too.

Re: Write protect on OM-D E-M1 Mark ii

It sounds like a setting in the Win10 PC (high spec built for Photoshop) could be doing it to you. Check for options for downloading & make sure it isn't deleting images etc after downloading or...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Maybe, maybe not. They had to measure RF strengths (WiFi & Bluetooth) at various distances around the body. In other words, the strength measured at the surface of the body where one would hold or...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

That would not be a 'standout' model to have at the 2020 Olympics in Japan though. Japanese companies will want to show off their best for that event.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

We'll find out when we know what sensor will be used in it. Leaks (from Simon) indicate it won't be much different in pixel count (maybe up to 24MP) to the E-M1 Mk II but improved in low light & high...

Re: Tony Northrup believes micro-four-thirds is dead

Not if you permanently have a 150-400mm F4-5.6 zoom lens or 300 F4 lens with MC14 attached. I think this camera is aimed it those sort of users. Don't forget Japan will be hosting the 2020 Olympics &...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Would you have ever bought a 1DX anyhow though?
It does seem to be quite large, being 10mm wider than an E-M1 Mk II & 2mm wider than an E-5! :eek:

Olympus is said to be bringing a PEN-F Mk II as...
