I hate this system!

Here is the pic but its not come in with its EXIF intact as far as I can see



I got this one here by using the copy function on the image itself, not on the code box, which was inoperative

(its a pretty rubbish pic by the way - just something to try to crack the mysteries of posting here)
Brian, left click the code box to highlight and Control C to copy. Then you can right click/paste in your post as normal.

Re: Birds in Flight Bif EM-5 and EM-1

Just reading a few comments by Bryce Bradford

There's a whoooolllleee lotta crap flying around here, so I'll boil it down pretty good:

The OM-D can ONLY use C-AF and C-AF+TR with Micro 4/3 lenses.
It CANNOT do C-AF or C-AF+TR with 4/3 lenses via an adapter.

You had the camera set to High Burst, which utilizes C-AF all the way until you release the shutter, at which point the focus becomes locked until you stop the burst.
To utilize C-AF, use LOW Burst. The camera will attempt to re-focus for EVERY photo.

C-AF+TR is worlds harder to use with any sort of success than regular C-AF.
Regular C-AF is not 100% accurate. In my best experience it pulled off 90% accuracy in a ~30% burst, in my most-referred-to experience it pulled off 87% accuracy:

For best results, use the following settings:
C-AF
Low Burst (4fps)
Single AF area
IS Off
Vivid color mode (S+2, C0, RGB+2)

For a most enjoyable experience, don't *expect* anything to the level of your Canon gear.

This applies to the E-M5, not the E-M1.

And your post didn't specify which one you were meaning.

So I clarified.
