    Finally had a Micro 4/3 image printed large

    It's wonderful to have a large print, and I should do more... but I'm also tempted to wonder how long will it be, before we can have a wall hanging display like the Panasonic 4k tablet Cheers Brian

    Metabones Speed Booster - New Focal Reducer Makes Lenses Faster, Wider, and Sharper

    If this adapter could be used with a Hexanon AR mount lens, I would be very interested. Need help with the conversion factor though... What would a 135mm f2.5 become? Or a 57mm f1.2? Excellent article there... can't wait to see this on m4/3rds. Very exciting! Brian

    Fuji x100s or om-d?

    The E-M5 is obviously the more flexible system camera, but the X100 has a timeless classic feel... only marred by sluggish focusing. The X100s will fix that making it near perfection right now (always expect something down the line to outclass anything now) I will wait to try the Olympus 17mm...

    One lens only

    Yes, the E-M5 with 17mm f1.8 would be my current choice for a single lens setup. At least until I can check out the X100s as an upgrade to my X100. Absolutely nothing wrong with taking to one lens for a while. Enjoy! Brian

    Where are the "mainstream" third party lenses?

    The Rokinon 7.5mm f3.5 fisheye is a great example of a mainstream 3rd party lens. You are right though, it would be great to see more choice and value away from the Olympus/Panasonic offerings. With the volume of cameras shipping, I'm sure it's just a matter of time. Cheers Brian

    Some initial thoughts on the Oly 17mm F1.8

    I agree, the 17mm f1.8 and 45mm f1.8 would make an excellent first two prime lens kit. I'd probably add the 7.5mm f3.5 fish eye next for iq, fun factor and value for money. Next, for more serious outlay the 35-100mm f2.8 and finally Olympus mZD 75-300mm for a long zoom. Cheers Brian

    Sony RX1 Full frame compact!

    Nic, there are some excellent photographers online who already live in beautiful locations (see GetDPI for examples)... and have bought their own RX-1's to show the world. You're right about Steve's infomercials, but they are entertaining - I just wouldn't make a decision on that source alone...

    Sony RX1 Full frame compact!

    I came very, very close to buying the RX-1 the week before last. Only thing that changed my mind was the slow autofocus. In fact, it reminded me very much of the E-P1... Unfortunately, while that wouldn't have been a problem 2 years ago - I wasn't ready to take the step backwards. Also, seeing...

    Understanding exposure

    While this isn't a tutorial on exposure, I've found it a very useful piece on exposure compensation for the E-P3, E-PL3 and E-PM1... will be useful for the E-M5 too. Pekka Potka on Expose To The Right with the E-P3. Hope it's of interest. Brian

    (Need Help) AF speed: 20mm f1.7 vs X100

    Hi Russell, I have the X100 and E-P3 with 20mm f1.7 here to compare. Focusing time is almost identical - the E-P3 is a tiny bit faster, but the X100 seems to be more sure in lower light... Since the latest X100 firmware update, the X100 is much improved in focusing speed so this is rarely an...

    Comparison of Olympus E-M5 and Panasonic G3 RAW Files - Same Sensor or Not?

    Certainly a worthwhile attempt at a comparison Amin, given the available tools - I'd like to see the DX0 analysis for final confirmation. Cheers Brian

    What is the best way to do exposure bracketing on E-PL3?

    Hi folks, long time no post :smile: First off, set your camera up for bracketing... e.g. RAW, IS off (if you're on a tripod), bracketing mode (I use 7 x 0.7ev), exposure mode (ESP) and then go to Menu 1-> Reset/Myset-> Myset1-> Set and then go to Cog Menu-> B Button/Dial->...

    Olympus PEN confusion...

    3rd UPDATE: EP3 vs EP1 Experience Diary

    Unbelievable. Why can't they just sell you a replacement plate? these look very easy to replace. I think I saw a post on GetDPI about this, just a moment... Sourcing parts for an E-P1 Cheers Brian

    EP3 First Impressions

    I agree, the E-PL3 has an articulating screen and is (will be, wen available) smaller and cheaper - a closer match to the G3 for comparison. Cheers Brian

    impulse control issue? e-p2 and e-p3 arriving tomorrow...

    Yes, in your situation I think I'd sell the E-P2. Cheers Brian

    EP3 First Impressions

    My money would be on the (so called) Pro Panasonic having a global shutter sensor... I would be surprised if it arrived before Christmas (this year) though. Enjoy your E-P3 Ray, please post some samples / further impressions in due course! Cheers Brian

    EP3 First Impressions

    Ray, I believe that Panasonic are working on a 4/3rds sensor with global shutter... i.e. lose the mechanical shutter and control the exposure on-sensor. This will lead to a cheaper, simpler mechanical construction and could open the way for high dynamic range multi-exposures on the fly...

    Oly 12mm size comparison: Panny 20/Pen F 38

    Actually, the Panasonic bodies allow for the lens having an aperture control ring - I use my PL 14-150mm OIS on the G1 this way. I like having both controls on the lens where you can see them clearly. Cheers Brian

    Oly 12mm size comparison: Panny 20/Pen F 38

    I can't help wondering why Olympus didn't go the whole hog and add an aperture ring... I hear there's a black 45mm f1.8... wonder if this lens will come in black too? Thanks for the pics Tom, hope you keep them coming! Cheers Brian

    Unveiling (E-P3?) technology

    Hi Djarum, there's an interesting point of view regarding investment here, unfortunately we are living in a consumer society... the accelerating pace of technology (dual core processors are being used to implement this new focusing method - maybe not viable previously) is exacerbating the...

    Unveiling (E-P3?) technology

    It looks like Olympus are pushing the boundaries, with a completely new approach to focusing and possibly other advantages to this sensor technology... not long to wait and we should know the full details and most importantly, what kind of image quality to expect. Cheers Brian

    First E-P3 images

    New sensor "forged in the flames of awesome"... I love it, you should work for Olympus marketing :biggrin: I'm sure hoping so too. Cheers Brian

    First E-P3 images

    If that grip had an alternative low profile version, the camera would be much closer to the E-P1/2 design. I wish that pop up flash had been an EVF instead. Otherwise, the major excitement for me is the new (S)HG 12mm f2 and the new sensor - I hope this thing will advance image quality...

    57mm Hexanon 1.2 vs. 1.4

    Interesting question... I don't know that the 57mm f1.2 is optically much better than the 57mm f1.4 (and I have both) but I do know that the 57mm f1.2 is physically larger, heavier and more expensive. It is however, my clear favorite due to it's outstanding bokeh and character. Perhaps the...

    Leica to produce Mu-43 how things change!!

    It will be very interesting to see how Leica will survive as m4/3rds gains weathersealed, pro-spec bodies and super high grade lenses over the coming months and years... I can't see Leica evolving very rapidly, while I can see more bodies which appeal to those who loved the Fuji X100. It's...

    Olympus mZD 9-18mm f4-5.6 Experience Diary

    I'm sorry, I don't have a comparison shot to hand... but the mZD 9-18 is very compact when collapsed, but extends significantly. It is a very compact lens though. Here are a few shots I took this morning, while taking a delightful walk on the way home from school run. I was shooting mostly...

    Pre-Order the New Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 for $599 at Adorama!

    Engadget goes hands on with new Panasonic GF3!

    I guess the Sony NEX is selling well enough to attract a direct competitor in the form of this camera... I really don't mind that Panasonic are extending further into the P&S sized format, it all provides choices. This camera would be perfect for the kids. I'm obviously more excited about a...

    Oh, wow... you're all way too nice :redface: I made the decision to focus 100% on this last project (the bringing into service of a large scale Telemetry System for a water company here in the UK) - and that decision paid off, with the successful conclusion of the work last week. Over the...

    Micro four-thirds cameras are wimpy
