Re: Panasonic 100-400

I've also heard that some people had issues with a stiff zoom ring and know of a couple that had them repaired or replaced under warranty. Mine certainly isn't too stiff - firm enough to prevent...

Re: Panasonic 100-400

The 100-400 is pretty much my favourite lens. It worked well on the Panasonic GH4 and even better now I have the EM1 MkII and some days, it doesn't leave the camera. For me, the 300mm wouldn't be...

Re: AF not as accurate

It's taken me some time to get used to the EM1 MkII, after moving from the GH4 (and wondering if I should have waited for the GH5) - but I'm pretty sure I made the right decision now. My hubby has a...

Re: basic video help needed on EM1 Mk II

Hi Joseph - thanks for your response

After a bit of experimenting, I have no solutions - but this is what I've found so far. I created some simple clips (Full HD 50P), just panning slowly round my...

Re: struggling with video on Em1 MkII

It appears the problem isn't what I thought. The video clips are OK - I'd been trying to play them back with various video players on the PC (Windows 10) in the hope of being able to then cast them...

struggling with video on Em1 MkII

I'm really struggling with video on the EM1 MkII - I know very little about video and want to keep things as simple as possible. I'm primarily a stills photographer but very occasionally want to...

Re: AF not as accurate

Have you tried Super Spot AF - described on page 41 of the EM1 MkII manual. You appear to have to assign it to a function button to be able to use it. Seems a bit complicated at first but should be...

Re: Ban on Muslim Cameras in Planes

It's a rather scary world that we live in now and much as I believe that we shouldn't let terrorists rule our lives, it does put me off visiting certain tourist destinations. I'm not a fan of crowds...

Re: Ban on Muslim Cameras in Planes

I can live without a laptop or tablet - and my phone is far from smart! I do not want to travel without my camera though. Part of my enjoyment of travel is to take photographs and we often plan...

Re: Ban on Muslim Cameras in Planes

I sympathise greatly with all those caught up in the latest events in London and I do understand the need for tight security. I'm quite happy to undergo having my camera equipment checked, swabbed,...

Re: Ban on Muslim Cameras in Planes

Just checked my travel insurance wording (Insure for all) and it would not be covered.

Under exclusions:

For valuables within checked-in luggage or in luggage compartments/racks not immediately...

Re: Ban on Muslim Cameras in Planes

This happened to me and my hubby, travelling through Athens a few years back. We both had cameras with 3 or 4 lenses and they insisted on taking both caps off all the lenses and peering through them....

Re: basic video help needed on EM1 Mk II

Thanks Graham, I found the settings but anything other than HD (1280) saves as a .MOV file - the main issue I have is that this format doesn't work on my TV.

basic video help needed on EM1 Mk II

Let me start by saying I haven't much of a clue when it comes to video. I am almost entirely a stills photographer but very occasionally want to take a few short video clips of my grandsons. Up...

Re: Lightroom CC / 6.9 update

It's probably a matter of personal taste but I find the camera profiles (even "natural") rather too saturated to me. The Adobe standard one works well for me. I'm sure some the colours look better...

Re: Lightroom CC / 6.9 update

I've noticed that any shots where I'd changed the colour balance in 6.8, now look wrong (mainly too green!). Setting the colour balance back to the original colour setting, they then look fine...

Re: Firmware for 100-400 lens fixes focus limiter issue

No - that's still greyed out. I suspect it would need something to enable it from the Olympus side - if it was at all possible with any non-Olympus lenses. Not sure whether their are technical...

Re: Lr 6

I'm not sure they ship it on CD any more. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think even the full boxed version from Amazon, PCWorld, etc, simply contains the product key now! I also have the standalone...

Re: New Firmware 1.1 Released

It doesn't make sense - the whole idea of having C1 - 3 is to save settings that can then be quickly accessed - including preferred aperture and speed. I've now contacted support too - maybe if...

Re: EM1 MKII Lock Up

Just because the card isn't on the list doesn't mean it won't work - just that it hasn't been tested. I must admit I hadn't checked this list - I don't really use video and haven't got any of the...
