Re: Shortage of Prime Utlra Wides

One of the reasons I switched away from Olympus for panoramic work was the lack of top quality Olympus WA lenses, which was made worse by the x2 crop factor. Olympus M4/3rds though is brilliant for...

Re: Lens covers

I think it's more of a statement saying "look at me, I'm a pro". Bought by those that have to have all the gear but not necessarily have any idea.

Stupid if you ask me, better to cover the...

Re: Ruddy Darter Male

I am intrigued with your stereo images Harold. How were they taken and how does one view them? Not seen this before.

Re: LCE em1x

The image circle produced by m4/3 (4/3) lenses would only fit the centre of a FF chip, leaving a large area of the chip around the outside of the image circle black. FF lenses produce much bigger...

Re: Bird ID please

Constantly have a stream of at least a dozen or so of them on the feeders in my garden. They are by far the most numerous bird that visit us and have been for some years now :)

I am in the process of building a new PC for photo work and today got around to making the decision of which monitors to get. I was thinking of a single 32" 4K monitor (BenQ SW320) but really wanted...

Re: AC-5 power supply for HLD-9 grip

The Olympus AC-5 adaptor supplies 9V at 5A, that's 45W, I hardly think that the OM-D E-M1 Mark II uses anywhere near that power, even at maximum load. I don't have a Mk.II camera but looking at...

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.
