Re: Can't get TTL to work with FL36R & E-M1ii

I haven't a clue about flash so I messed up on Christmas day. I since discovered that using the little hot-shoe flash that comes with my M1/1, it only works if contrary to my norm, I use shutter...

Re: From my local ornithological park

My 75-300 is soft at the long end, so the longest in these 5 images was 264mm and aperture always f/7.1, ISO 400 and speeds around 1/2000. These are probably my best [ie sharpest] images from this...

Re: 14-150

I don't have either but my reading produces conflicting information. Somewhere I read that optically both lenses are the same except for some clever coating on the newer lens, but another report says...

Re: 14-150

From the posted images it is clearly the mk1 and not the mk 2 as per the Amazon link. That no doubt explains the attractive price.

Re: M1 mk2 £1575

My M1 mk1 came from HDEW with a 3 year warrenty but with no Olympus warranty card. Warranty is basically an insurance system provided by HDEW. In the first year the rear dial failed and under...

Beware Peak Design lookalikes.

Looking for a camera strap that I could easily change from a hand strap to a shoulder strap I found something on eBay that was exactly what I was looking for. The price was trivial, something like...

Re: Barn Owl Flying in Sunlight

Really? The bokeh in all shots is terrible and greatly detracts from otherwise wonderful images. Is that normal for that lens? But if I had taken those images I would be very pleased indeed and I...

Re: Thinking of going back to Canon for birds/wildlife!

Just face up to the fact that there are some things MFT excels at and some it does not. Go for the 7d2 or better still an 80D plus 400/5.6L and you will wonder why you ever bothered with MFT for...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Peter. Very envious of the Bullfinch, they are wonderful birds that I saw so rarely when I lived in the frozen north of England.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

I often take bird pictures through my double glazed Windows and I think you did very well. I usually get good images but with some very strange double image bokeh effects due to the glass. In fact I...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

A wise decision. You can eventualy knock down a brick wall by banging your head against it, but there are better ways of doing it.
Here are three from yesterday at Le Teich on the Bassin d'Arcachon...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Thanks Peter. Most would think that the Cranes fly in the well known chevron patterns, and indeed they do, but as you saw in my last year's video, great groups arrive and circle for some time waiting...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

HDEW in the UK [from whom I have bought cameras and lenses] have the 70D at £519 and the 100-400 II at £1319 totalling £1838, so significantly less than the Oly 300mm. But more than that, if you...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Re: Silent Shutter

Shooting menu 2, scroll down to item 5, anti shock/silent, and turn it on. You could always read the new manual for firmware four which is available for download!
