Re: Black Friday Deals

.
Impressive - but my experience was even better. I ordered a BLN-1 on black Friday for 39.68, which seemed a good deal - the order was placed at 23.00 on the Friday night and was delivered at...

Re: Serial Number Change?

Thanks for the comments; the shutter count had gone up by three, which suggests that it is the same body, unless there's a bit of witchcraft going on. There are a few little marks on the body - but I...

Serial Number Change?

This may have been asked before, but my EM1 Mk1 has recently returned from a brief stay in Portugal courtesy Olympus Service, after a strap lug fell off. It returned with a note saying the serial...

Re: Geotagging with Oi.Share now with Oi.Track...

Pleased it worked for someone! I'm sure that there's a stage I'm missing somewhere to give the result I want (and used to get on the old system) ....... just need to find it!

Re: Geotagging with Oi.Share now with Oi.Track...

Sorry to revive this slightly old thread, but I've just been through the same process having not used geotagging for some time (E-M1 Mk1). Olympus Track loaded ok, then I've also went through the "No...

Re: Have I done the right thing?

I did try the 600 with the E-3 and it wasn't too good, but maybe the stabilisation on the E-M1 would help - I'll give it a go!

Have I done the right thing?

Having used Olympus since 1984, and still having OM1/1n/2/2n/2SP/4Ti collecting dust but too nice to sell, and then moving to an E300 and an E3, a couple of years ago I bought an E-PL5 and haven't...

Re: Giant hover fly.

Volucella zonaria, I think. I had one of these in the garden last week, but it had disappeared before I could get the camera out. Great shots - mine wouldn't have been up to this standard!.

Re: Surprise bird feeder visitor...

We've had a female for the past few weeks now and she's completely taken over the feeders - anything else lands, and she's on it like an Exocet! Blackbirds are no trouble to her, pigeons and...

Re: Best flash - Olympus vs others

I've several T32 flashes which I have used successfully with an E-3 in the past (in manual mode), but was put off by the comments about the higher voltage on old guns. Are the T-series guns safe with...

Re: Coup de grass

Why not - recovering from Christmas Lunch needs a bit of fresh air and exercise! A year or two back, I went out and built a new fence - all the neighbours were away, it needed doing and I felt better...

Father Christmas got it wrong - but not too wrong.

The presents piled up - one with my name on is a nicely wrapped box. Has someone read my letters to Santa Claus and bought the Pen-F for me? Peer through the wrapping paper - I'm sure that says...

Re: Little Aston Church by Night

About 22.15, looking approximately south west, so I don't think it's Venus, which I understand isn't visible until early morning at the moment, not that my astronomy is up to much! Suggestions...

Re: Little Aston Church by Night

The lens was the 40-150mm, f4-f5.6 R lens, supplied as a kit lens with several of the Pen range, and I've certainly been impressed with the image quality it produces over the year I've had it. I...

Re: Little Aston Church by Night

Thanks for the comment - I wondered about the apparent tilt, which may be due to being shot from a lower level (the church is on a rise compared to where I was standing). I'd looked at correcting it,...

Funnily enough, I did originally remove the post in the bottom left, but didn't like it - the lines in the concrete under the green moss seemed to take your eye out of the picture, while the post...

Re: Quiet Dusk - trying out hdr!

Thanks Phill; that's helpful. I'm not sure why I didn't crop it as suggested originally, but it certainly improves things. I was probably influenced by the other shot I took which had much more of...

Quiet Dusk - trying out hdr!

With very flat late afternoon light over Shustoke Reservoir, near Coleshill, Warwickshire, a 'straight' photo seemed to have no impact, so tried a three exposure hdr on the E-PL5. With little or no...

Re: Olympus XA

The XA was brilliant - the only camera I've ever actually worn out (over a 20 year period), as the front sliding cover track wore away, though the photo quality was unaffected. Fortunately I found...

Re: Photograph this model at Focus and win the next Olympus camera...

Here's a try, but taken with a trusty - if not all that sharp - mju1030SW - I couldn't face carting the e-3 around and can't afford an OM-D (yet). Shame Jane's put her cardy on!
