Re: Extended Warranties

I agree with all your points. Both my EM1 Mk1ís have been to Portugal to have faults fixed (rear dial and rubber grip falling off). Given this experience I would buy the extra warranty for the Mk 2...

Re: LR error message

That error message is utter gibberish to me. As a computer dunce, this is what I would try:
1. Check the files on the card. Are they readable if opened directly?
2. Quit and restart LR. I find...

Re: Where to host files for controlled sharing?

I use Google Photos. Storage is free and unlimited as long as each picture is smaller than (I think) 15MB. You can create an album and share it via an email link. You can share your entire library...

Re: Best practice external hard drives

Unless you need your discs to be read by Windows PCs, stick with a standard Mac HFS+ journaled format. (There is a new format for Mojave, but I don't think you can format external HDs in it at the...

Re: Best practice external hard drives

Hi Mike,

Opening up the G-tech drives and swapping the HDs should be straightforward, though I've not done it my my current 6TB G-tech since it is still under warranty. I used to use Lacie...

Re: Best practice external hard drives

Coming back to the OP, can you clarify the situation? You say you have 2x4TB back-ups, but also say the iPhoto library is on the external drives not on the MBP. This sounds to me like one of the 4TB...

Re: Olympus 1.4 mc 14

Historically, the Japanese camera industry used JIS (Japanese Industry Standard) screws. However, I have removed one screw from my own MC14 and the thread seems to match metric ISO M2. Unfortunately,...

Re: Thornton Pickard 5x4" half-plate view camera?

The Lens Collector’s Vade Mecum has a short entry for Thornton-Pickard. They were based in Altrincham (a stone’s throw from me in Sale!). Dates are roughly 1890 to 1930.

They didn’t make lenses...

Re: Lens confusion

I bet they've sent you the old 4/3 E-system DSLR mount lens. This can be used on micro-4/3 but needs an adapter. If the seller said it was a micro-4/3 lens, i would send it back.

Re: Lens Fungus

As has been pointed out, the UV from an LED may kill the fungus but this will be a long process (days or weeks of exposure). The LED should not be emitting in the UV-C band (required for germicidal...

Re: MF adapter / Sunagor lens.

For OM to 4/3 DSLR, the official item is the MF-1 adapter. But there are plenty of Chinese clone items. I have several which I no longer use since I no longer have a 4/3 DSLR. You can have one for...

Re: MC-1.4 Converter

It is also possible hat the lens locking pin on the camera is not coming fully out with the TC in place. Maybe the recess in the TC is just a bit too small. The locking pin triggers a switch that...

Re: Sigma 400mm

This is a difficult choice to make. Eventually, I decided to go the native m4/3 route and have sold most of my 4/3 lenses now. The final transition has been the telephoto end. This is how I came to...

Re: Panasonic Leica 100-400mm F4-6.3

I doubt it. The MC-14 has a front element that goes into the back of the 40-150 Pro lens. It looks like the rear element of the Pana 100-400 comes to the back of the mount. I think the TC will not...
