Re: E5 + Lenses

Hi John - if you decide to split up the lot, I'd be interested in the 35-100.

Re: The moon

Forgot to answer this Alf... I used the OVF to focus. Bigma's magnification at 500mm meant I needed the E5 body stuck to my face to reduce camera shake :)

Thanks Chevvy... I will certainly check out Huw's gallery for some pointers :)

Thanks Alf. I will stop it up and see the difference... though DOF should have been deeper at F14. I think the centre...

FLBA-1 Flash diffuser for FL-50R

Hi,

I just bought a FL-50R on eBay. It's got everything in the box but missing the lambency diffuser/bounce adapter. The genuine FLBA-1 diffuser seems 10 dearer than the cheapest alternative on...

Re: The red kites at Argaty

A number of my images were overexposed, especially ones with the birds against the overcast sky. I had to reduce the contrast, lift the shadows and reduce the resultant noise. Overall I did fill the...

Re: The red kites at Argaty

I use PSE9. I found that a lot of noise gets generated when I try and compensate for under or over exposure, even by a third of a stop. Cropping seems to generate even more noise :eek: I had to use...

The place we visited was a place they feed the red kites every day. The guy who feeds them said that they get 40-50 kites at a time in the peak time during winter. There were about 20 or so of them...

Re: What would you have done?

In the E5, when you hold down the Mode and AF buttons together (on the left of the viewfinder prism), it will bring up the EV bracket option. You can bracket up to 7 frames at differing EV values.

Re: What would you have done?

Nice image alf, pleasing composition *chr

Re: Olympus OM-D + Lenses + Extras Only weeks old

If it's only 2 weeks old, you might be able to return it to the merchant as you usually have 2 weeks to cool off. I wouldn't leave it any longer though.
