Re: More Interest in M4/3 Recently?

No, I don't know but had a go with digiscoping some years back. Not easy to do with careful manual focussing required plus BIF is a complete none starter. Went back to a camera with a proper...

Re: E-M1(ii) silver edition or Mk3?

The trouble is having spent your money on that nice shiny mk II then the mk III will be out with all sorts of improved spec and you will kick yourself. The trouble is that wait.......

Re: New territory for me - E-M1 shutter stuck!

I remember reading an article on cleaning your cameras sensor which said never ever fire compressed air towards the sensor/shutter mechanism unless you really really want a large repair bill. Not...

Re: 12-40 Pro - noisy during AF?

Re: E-M5 mk iii - same sensor as E-M1ii ?

Some Sony cameras (I can't be bothered to look them up) came out with new sensors with a reduced pixel count targeting low light photography with better DR. My now ancient Samsung S7 mobile phone...

Re: E-M5 mk iii - same sensor as E-M1ii ?

One of micro 4/3rds achiles heels is high ISO so a new sensor with improved high ISO capability rather than pixel count would be what I would like to see, marketing might want increased pixel count...

Re: E-M5 mk iii - same sensor as E-M1ii ?

If it is the sensor that it will be fitted with it raises my hopes that the eventual EM-1 MK III will have a new sensor.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Years ago my son had a camera which showed similar artifacts shortly before the sensor died. Sure hope it is not that!

Re: So, is the AF better with firmware 3?

Had another go today. Realized I had C-AF plus tracking set. Works better without tracking, just enlarged the box with the little vertical slider so it was easier to keep on target. Still...

Re: So, is the AF better with firmware 3?

I thought it was just me not being able to find 3x3 or 5x5 but after another video attempt this morning I realize I would not be very good at keeping the target within such a box anyway!
I use the...

Re: So, is the AF better with firmware 3?

Thanks for the advice. I did keep the camera aimed at her but I am not sure how many focus points were activated. I had taken some stills with five points activated but that does not necessarily...

Re: I only went it to have a look....

Super lens, replaced my 12-40 too.

Re: E-M1X thoughts and excellent Dave Etchells video

Mixed feelings even if I could afford one.
At that size it would have to be specifically for shooting wildlife, BIFS in particular. The thought of the camera with the newly announced zoom or with...

Re: Olympus 150 - 400

Canon have had a 200-400 f4 with a built in 1.4 converter for years, you just flick a switch and it swings into position all internally. Very good but very very expensive.
