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

I had the shutter stick on my EM-1 mk 1. Fortunately it freed up by taking the lens off and then gently tapping the shutter (I bought the camera 2nd hand so it's of unknown vintage). Had it stick a...

Re: Scanner Mode

The Updater is already on 2.1.3. I've got the settings saved in Workspace so could easily restore them after an SD update. Not that I think I'll ever bother as the camera works absolutely fine as it...

Re: Scanner Mode

That probably explains it. At least it updated the lens which is all I really care about. I may update the body via the SD card at some point.

Re: Scanner Mode

Mine's on mode1 (not activated) and it works fine. Having said that, my camera is still on firmware version 2.2. I did try to update it but the update failed (several times). I did manage to update...

Re: C-AF preferring the background

Not in the water though so relatively easy. Just like this one

Re: C-AF preferring the background

As a point of interest how many of you who are offering solutions have actually photographed seals from a boat?

Re: C-AF preferring the background

Stopping down will not affect the AF because the camera performs AF with the lens wide open. At 50m the head of a bobbing seal is going to be rather small in the viewfinder and thus difficult for the...

Re: TG-5 vs Lumix GX800

To be honest this is an apples and oranges comparison. You should have dunked the GX800 in a bucket of water and then tested how well it performs ;) Action cameras are for recording memories not for...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

You might want to be a bit more selective about who you share your hide with ;) It's clearly a female Kestrel.

I can't imagine a twitcher being interested in seeing an Osprey let alone spending money photographing one. Thinking about it, I don't think I'd spend 75 to get the same shots as everyone else...

Re: Default Custom Mode options OMD1 Mk2

I think you could well be right about that. It's worth remembering that this camera is aimed at professionals and experienced amateurs who know how they want their camera set up. It never actually...

Re: Default Custom Mode options OMD1 Mk2

Sadly, there isn't really one good setting for birds. Any particular set of settings I or anyone else could give you will be wrong most of the time. That would be more hindrance than help to you....

Re: Lens covers

They don't help at all as part of a disguise. Birds seem to respond mainly to movement. The best thing to do is use a portable hide and wait for the birds to come to you.

Re: Battery suggestions E-M1

I've got some Ex-Pros for my EM-1. I'm not sure that they have quite the capacity of the genuine Olympus battery but on a cost/capacity basis I think they're very good value. I find that the Oly...

Re: Pecking pigeons

Nice photo :)



Wood Pigeons are one of the few species of birds we get in this country which can breed all year round.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

I'm sure that Olympus will be aiming to have the 150-400 available for the Olympics. I think they've designed it for covering track and field from the press area in mind hence the focal length and it...

Re: New MC 20 announced.

I tried but for some reason the MMF-3 wouldn't fit onto the MC-14. I've got an EC-14 and an EC-20 anyway so it was merely an academic exercise.

Re: How to snap a Mongoose at night without a flash?

The Mongoose isn't going to attack you unless you corner it and try to grab it. If it senses you're there it'll run away.


Photographing animals in the dark can be rather challenging. Even if you...

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Low light focusing with telephoto lenses and teleconverters isn't really an issue. You'll struggle to get a high enough shutter speed to freeze subject movement long before you hit the camera's low...
