Re: Animal Farm

I really like the photos which you took on your "short cut". Beautiful colours and just the right depth of field on the close up. *chr

Lovely pics Mark. Did you take them in a botanic garden? Or have you developed green fingers yourself?

Re: E-M1 ii with 4/3rds lenses

Re: Olympus ED 70-300mm F4.0-5.6 Four thirds

Angelica, I have one of those lenses. It is a wonderful piece of equipment. But..... It has a 4/3 mount and so you will need an adapter, such as the MMF-3, to attach it to your camera. Secondly,...

Re: External SSD drive

Hi Mark,

A bit of a round-about tale, but here goes:

A couple of years ago, my then 6 year old iMac was getting unacceptably slow. I had already added a 4TB external mechanical drive to hold...

Re: E-M5 III reviews

Yes it does. But it is not for me. The lack of a second card slot is a big issue for me. I have only been caught out once with memory card failure, but that would have been significant. ...

Re: E-M5 III reviews

I like that it now has PDAF, but do not like the fact that it still doesn't have dual card slots.

Re: Brisbane City Hall with new 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO

The E-M1 Mk II coupled with the 12-100mm must be one of the best (if not the best) travelling combinations available today. Over the Easter period this year, I made a quick trip to the Netherlands. ...

Re: Brisbane City Hall with new 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO
