Re: Adobe Photoshop CS6 public beta hands-on preview at DPNow.com

I tried twice today and both times the download failed about half-way through :(
Living in the countryside I'm lucky that we get a ~2.3Mb connection... :o

Re: Infrared photography

I tested my E-600 by pointing the TV remote control at it and pressing some buttons... and you can see the IR light up, so your E-620 should be OK for IR.

Coincidently I'd recently ordered a 720nm...

Re: OM-D E-M5 review in Advanced Photographer

"Cons: Composing with the EVF at 9fps is tricky, menu system."

Yet another review, yet another moan about the Oly menu system, yet another reviewer who clearly hasn't got a clue :mad:

Re: An OM-D E-M5 portrait from Focus yesterday

I like both of them.

And the lens bokeh is pretty nice :)

Re: Can I use this flash with my e520?

Whatever you do, don't put it in the bin! I can give it a very good home! :D

I'm not convinced that any E-System camera can handle 200v and personally I wouldn't try.

The Sunpak G4500 also goes...

Re: Goodbye digital hello film

I took my Exa II out just over a year ago and ran 36 exposures through it.

And then found out that the shutter is dragging... :(

I'm going to try using our BX20 though soon.

Re: Disappointing

Just when you think Olympus are in the mire, Pentax come along and shoot themselves in the foot. Olympus were fairly brave with the E-1, E-300 and E-330, but compared to this they were nice looking,...

Re: OMD - EM5 (Again)

I like it!

When I bought my E-600 I had the option of going m4/3 but while I like the PENs in principle, I decided the E-600 was more what I wanted.

If the OM-D is as good as it looks, and has...

Re: E600 vs. E620 RAW files

That's not the problem - Optics Pro 5 *does* (or should!) support the E-620 out of the box, it was one of the models I could choose to add when I installed it.
I've just tried again tonight and it's...

Re: E600 vs. E620 RAW files

Ah right, I'll have to remember that. Generally I seem to just do one file at a time anyway as I'm usually a SOOC photographer.

Re: E600 vs. E620 RAW files

Just for the record, I use ExifToolGUI to edit my E-600 ORF files and it works a treat.
I just change E-600 to E-620 and my old copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 will then open them fine.

Re: Opinions / Advice Needed - About To Buy E-520 or E620.

Don't overlook the E-600! It's about 99.9% the same as an E-620, but is frequently a LOT cheaper.
And as you probably already know the E-600/620 are poor man' E-30.

Re: Can I use this flash with my e520?

You are having a lucky time - I wish I had some friends like yours!

Personally I'd check the trigger voltage before physically attaching it to the camera! You just need to short the hotshoe bottom...
