Re: A rare bargain price for a tripod.

You're right Wally. I was so overawed by the low price I didn't think about my son-in-law appreciating one as well. I've bought the alloy version cheap enough instead, but I will be watching if...

Re: Orchid in the morning light.

Yep, outside on the south (shady) side of the house. It was 19°C here today on a late winter's day & no rain for too long (it got a watering last week) with some warm north westerly winds...

Re: Orchid in the morning light.

The afternoon light looked good on them this afternoon. I used Spot Metering, so here it is (SOOC).

Re: A rare bargain price for a tripod.

I had another look to see what may be available & one seller (in NSW) had the alloy version (with 5% off as well) at $56 so I've got him the Christmas present. It's only 180gm heavier & he's much...

Thumbs up A rare bargain price for a tripod.

I was lucky enough to see a new ebay seller put up some tripods at a ridiculously low price last night. The item was the "Zomei Z699C Carbon Fiber Tripod 5 Section Monopod Portable Ball Head For...

Re: 1MK11 off moment

Maybe my assumption is wrong but then with that scenario it's quite possible then I guess (if there's enough time between sets of frames).

Re: Olympus Report Lower Mirrorless Sales

No, I don't think that would/should be a problem, although I know other companies have folded in the past. Remember Panasonic make their own ordinary lenses but need the Leica branding for the better...

Re: 1MK11 off moment

They should be fine (I use them). I think it is most likely the hand pressing the grip's shutter button because I've done it myself. On the E-M5 HLD-6 grip the button is exposed but also not totally...

This is mostly where the ‘converted’ come & yes, we do discuss models etc & can encourage each other in our buying decisions, but I think it is better & more outside marketing that brings in the...

Re: 1MK11 off moment

I suspect it was an accidental press of the shutter button, especially if the HLD-9 grip was attached & enabled, as that can easily be pressed with the side of the hand.

Re: New Olympus Patent: 400mm f4.0 MFT Lens

I had one person suggest going for the Lumix FZ1000 with 24-400 (equiv) F2.8-4.0 using 1" sensor. It's selling for $900 & might be a poor man's option, but I really would like that Oly 150-400 lens...

Re: Man with phone in hand.........

Thanks. Security? It was fairly quite around there with a only a few people passing. I am still very careful in busier places.



Thanks. The photo was taken with E-M1 Mk II & 12-40 F2.8 lens...

Re: New Olympus Patent: 400mm f4.0 MFT Lens

I don't know how much the 150-400 is likely to cost as they are only going to announce (in March) that they're going to produce it for the end of next year, but maybe I'm hoping & wishing for more...

Re: Olympus Report Lower Mirrorless Sales

I wouldn't be as worried, although I do feel for the E-M5 MK II users wanting to update to a later model. The word out (yes, from Simon) is that no new model of that level is planned. The shifting of...

Re: New Olympus Patent: 400mm f4.0 MFT Lens

It's likely for the same reasons as the F1.0 primes that were shelved in favour of the f1.2 prime lenses instead. They were heavy & expensive while the f1.2 lenses had a better chance of selling. I...

Re: New Olympus Patent: 400mm f4.0 MFT Lens

I'm waiting for (& hoping I can afford) the 150-400 f4.0-5.6 lens that is said to be announced next March, being available at the end of 2019. Good zooms are my preference.
