Re: Scanner Mode

I've been using Scanner Mode 1 (i.e. no scanner) for the past few days and I think I rather like it. However, it is a trade-off in that although the camera has less tendency to lose focus when you...

Re: Scanner Mode

Dennis,


I don't think Scanner mode will have any special interection with back-button focus. It should work the same whether AF is BB or on the shutter button.


Are you confusing SCanner...

Re: Scanner Mode

Scanner set to mode 3 can be a problem. It all depends what you want to happen if you can't keep the subject under the chosen focus points and if there is any other detail in picture to grab focus.

Re: v3 Firmware for mk2 - updates for mk2, m1x and lenses

I have updated my camera and was keen to try the C-AF Centre Prioity setting. However, it doesn't seem to work. When there is a subject under the centre point, the AF still jumps off to other points...

Re: Small AF target.

I find that the smaller single point actually works better than the larger point so yes, I think that you can assume it makes no negative difference. My experience of the better performance of the...

Re: Hand held hi res - It's fabulous !

I forgot all about the new EVF optics when I went to try and it was only after I had left the shop that I realized that I hadn't noticed any difference!

Re: E-M1X preview sessions

Well, I thought the weight was okay whilst I was holding the body only. Then I thought it was a bit heavy once I'd attached the 300mm. it's 5.5 lbs vs 4.5lbs for the MkII and I did notice the...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I agree. I pretty much only use all points for the situations that you described. But maybe the E-M1X is better in this respect.


There are a couple of new settings on the E-M1X too:

The Motorbike Test


I have had a look at the motorbike test in the same Japanese review. This one used small single point in the centre and was shot at f/7.1 with the 300mm f/4. Most of the time,...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

The graphs plotted with StepCount are not greatly different to those in metres, other than the left axis being reversed. Although FocusStepCount is very much not a linear relationship to distance,...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

StepCount is the poistion of the focus elements in terms of focus motor steps. I assume that 1 step is the smallest incremental move that the lens can make. It is essentially the internal units by...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

The reported focus distances may not be accurate in absolute terms but they are in relative terms between frames and they do corrolate directly with a related parameter called FocusStepCount. My...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I am somewhat shocked to see that the 25-point AF group is listed as a differentiator between the E-M1 MkII and the E-M1X which suggests that they are not even going to give us that in a firmware...

Unhappy Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Jebus! Not nearly as revolutionary as I was expecting. No real song and dance about the C-AF system. Many things seem to be the same as the MkII.


Call me puzzled. :confused:
