The original prototype that became the Pacer, LEV-1 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Rail_railbuses#/media/File:LEV1_at_Weybourne_Station.jpg), was at the Wensleydale Railway for a while and I...

Re: Do We Rely Too Much on Electricity?

Like Windows, the "Start" button has a "Shut Down" option which stops the OS, after which you can remove the power. If you're running it from the command line, then type "shutdown -h now".

Re: Dlna

Windows 10 Networking (or Notworking as I prefer to call it) is a total nightmare. However, I found this video very useful and finally I'm able to share media files on my three W10 computers, a...

Extendable lenses, filters and lens caps

I think some of you have an aversion to extendable lenses which I can understand to an extent as it's irritating to see "the lens is locked - please extend the lens" message at just the wrong time. ...

Re: Short break in the Cotswolds

Nice work Phill, reminds me of being taken to those places by my parents when I was a child. Any of those would make a nice chocolate box or jigsaw picture but no.3 is my favourite!

Re: Quiraing

The dark treatment looks exactly right to me, suggesting dusk (or dawn) very well.

Re: Olympus OI Track / OI Share

It's easy enough when you get used to it :). Turn the camera's wi-fi on and connect the phone to it. Set the camera's clock, turn off the wi-fi, start gps logging. At the end of the trip, turn off...

Re: Olympus OI Track / OI Share

I don't see why not, assuming you're using both bodies on the same outing. Once you've finished logging connect the first one, upload the log file, disconnect that one, connect the second and upload...

Olympus OI Track / OI Share

I have tried OI Share before and found it worked OK with my PEN-F although some features are a bit obscure. Today I decided to get a bit more familiar with it on my E-M1i and also try OI Track, the...

Agreed, but its scope is a bit limited - "The Babylon Bee is Your Trusted Source For Christian News Satire." :). I thought this was quite good though:

Re: A downside of not having an Anti-aliasing filter?

Affinity Photo has an FFT Denoise filter which claims to be able to remove Moiré patterns but I've not tried it myself.

Re: Spotted 2nd hand E-M1X at LCE Manchester

There's 20% VAT here, perhaps that makes up some of the new price difference?

Re: Advice on lenses

I beg to differ, but then I like ultra-wides. I have a 9-18 (mFT version) and am very pleased with it overall, though results do benefit significantly from post pocessing with DxO Photolab to remove...

Re: Advice on lenses

Likewise - the E-M1 has both PDAF focussing as used on the original FT system, and CDAF used on mFT. My FT lenses seem to focus just as well on the M1 as they did on my old E-620. The E-M1 is the...

Re: Advice on lenses

I just bought a used E-M1 so I could use my FT 12-60 SWD and 50-200 SWD which don't focus well on my E-M5. It was cheaper than buying the pro mFT equivalent lenses! The IQ seems a lot better than...

Re: Will Brits Take Action To Fight Climate Change

All of that is treating the symptom and not the cause, like sticking a plaster on a weeping sore.

Re: Some B&W Images from my Mamiya 645

A good set - the loss of that line was a tragedy, it would be a big tourist attraction these days. There's a nice walk from Kirkby Stephen along part of the line which includes two viaducts - the...
