Re: Big news in the press re Safari amateur photographers

Re: Third party batteries for the EM1ii (and EM1X)

Iíd say it was hard to compare different brandsí life unless youíre doing exactly the same things each time, for the same length of time. Mkii original batteries last me 2.5 - 3h to get below 20%...

Re: Rolling shutter example, add yours

Yes, that's it.

If I know I'm going to be shooting people in a museum, shop, shopping mall or gallery I quite often take my Fuji X70 - it has a leaf shutter which is almost silent and isn't...

Re: F Stop.............!!

For sure, but getting them past first base by knowing where 'equivalence' lies in that area makes a huge difference, otherwise m4/3 has one arm tied behind its back.

Re: Emulux Combi Filters

Yes, that would be convenient and not too expensive (£42 for the 12-100).

Re: Honey Bee on Verbena

Cracker.
Extension tubes with the 40-150 and 300 Pros work a treat for this sort of thing and you can maintain a distance that stops you disturbing the insect (or getting stung!).

Re: If Sensor Size Doesn't Matter, Why Buy a Bigger One?

I use Capture One, and when I need to go via TIFFs I do indeed use 16-bit when the target app will accept that.
