Re: Third party battery failure for OM-D EM5 II

Re: Focus Peaking shortcut to settings with Info key on E-M1 II

Apparently this has been a feature all along & also with the E-M1 (first model) as well. I just tried it too. *yes
It's also something I had noticed either.

Nice scenes & reminders of when we used to go down those areas.

Re: The Secretive Eastern Whipbird revealed.

Re: A Crimson Rosella asking for a feed

Thanks Huw. I was only a metre away but now that I see the EXIF it was only at 1/80 second, so I am pleased it was OK as it was a breezy day too.

When I arrived there, there was a father & son...

Re: Photo File Numbers

I should have adopted an alphabetic method myself instead of some random naming, but I think the E30 is still P, E-M5 is O, E-M1 is M & E-M1 II is K. Crazy, I know, but then my Stylus 1 got S (of...

Re: Highway to the Snow

It looks like you had a 'cool' time Mark. We've had some 'white' stuff over the top end of the Blue Mountains & west too (but I didn't venture up there then though). It's possible that blue car...
