    Just Preordered an Air A01

    It would be easy to mount a viewfinder, just buy a double ended tripod mount screw, a tripod screw to flash mount adapter and then mount a glass viewfinder such as the oly vf1.

    A long press (about 5 seconds) will turn the camera off. I think when it is in that low power mode (green light pulsing) it is only paired by bluetooth which wouldn't be much of a power drain - I think that is the case because when you go back to the app it re-pairs again via wifi but not...

    Olympus stops sales of E-M10 Mk II

    Funny, I just got an Olympus email indicating they are giving bonus trade in money (in-store promotion) for cameras when you buy several of the latest models - the biggest bonus of $150 was for this model, which is actually kind of tempting. Seems as though stock won't be available until the...

    I am curious - did you change the setting in the app, and then continue to use the app? Or change in app, but then use just the camera/shutter (blind shooting) without using the app. I'm just wondering out loud if the camera reverted to in-camera settings at some point, rather than paired...

    @WilburNJ there is a mode called photo story where you create an image collage of what looks like up to 4 images. I think it is in real time, it's that what you're referring to? There is also a video clip mode where you shoot sorry clips up to 8 seconds then edit them together all in that one...

    @Drdave944 the Bluetooth pairing is used to turn the camera itself on from completely off. I'm pretty sure the air is running with Bluetooth low energy in the background all the time, that way you never have to even use the cameras buttons if you don't want to, it can be entirely controlled from...

    Although it can certainly be used without a phone, it is still a necessity. The good news is you can pickup a no contact good smart phone very cheaply to use just with the phone. Something like a Moto e phone would work great and if you watch for deals at slickdeals.net you should locate...

    Entering week two of our trip to europe and I'm having a helluva good time with this camera! Using almost exclusively with the oly 25mm, and shooting blind a majority of the time. I wanted something unobtrusive, and this has fit the bill perfectly. Occasionally also used the 17mm 2.8 and...

    Just Preordered an Air A01

    I'm not sure if I read it in this thread or in the Facebook group, but turning the camera both on and off from the app solved minor different connectivity issues for both off my phones! This is a great little camera, I'm glad I picked it up for our upcoming trip to Germany and Italy!

    SanDisk 256GB SSD for $99.99 at Amazon

    after a cloning attempt the first time around, I've gone with clean installs - it is just much easier without any hassles. I have installed in two laptops now and my built desktop and they are totally worth it. I keep photos on external drives to avoid having to move files down the road. If...

    Canon PIXMA PRO-100 for $34 after mail in rebate!

    The box is in fact that heavy. well worth it though, this is a steal. I got 2 last year and had no issues at all with the rebate - you can pre-register your rebate online as well and follow it as it is processed - I received the cards within about 3 weeks both times (I'm being generous...

    First time computer builder

    If you have a micro center in your area I would highly recommend checking them out for a build. Great prices in line with newegg. Assuming you have a keyboard and mouse, 750 fit a solid build is definitely doable. I built my i5 16Gb ram gtx 660 and 250Gb ssd with os right around that price...

    Rokinon 7.5mm FE vs. Panasonic 8mm FE?

    Autofocus is a waste of time with a fisheye lens - set to f8 and just behind infinity on the focus ring and everything from about 2ft to infinity will be in focus. Optically the rokinon is as good (maybe better) as the panasonic - save that money for another nice prime!

    Canon Pro 100 Printer $98 after rebate

    I do that with every rebate I send, of course you'd take the steps to protect yourself with a $300 rebate! The system they have is by far the best run rebate I've ever dealt with. You can even pre-submit and track electronically. I received both of the rebates I submitted within 3 weeks as...

    Canon Pro 100 Printer $98 after rebate

    $98 isn't even the lowest these have been! This rebate has been going on since the beginning of last year, they just renew it every 3 months or so. I bought 2 last year for I think $70 and $80 after the rebates (and both with paper included too).

    Tripds and ballheads....another part of downsizing

    If you're using the center column you're using your tripod wrong (it becomes a poorly supported monopod). A proper tripod reaches eye level without the need for a center column. If POS cheap is enough for you that is fine but a sturdy tripod is really the only tripod worth buying. If I were...

    Nikon J1 two lens kit for $199 (refurb)

    I received mine last week, looks as good as new. I had also ordered an adapter for my nikon F/G mount lenses, but am seriously disappointed that the camera doesn't meter/work in A mode with manual lenses like they do with micro4/3 cameras. Probably going to sell mine as I don't want to fork...

    Sigma hires a 5 year old to design new camera!

    It is definitely interesting - it would have to be comfortable in actual use for them to go out on that limb though! Unfortunately they killed it with the fixed lens - if you're going to make an eccentric design, it had better be utilitarian as well, otherwise all is lost. Especially when they...

    WiFi card opinions

    I have an eye-fi and ez share card, and have to say I like the simplicity of the ez share card. The switch is nice, and you can to a batch upload after shooting, as well as be selective about which files you'd like to transfer. It can also work in-browser and has apps as well. eye-fi is more...

    Leaked Photos of New GM1 and 12-32mm Compact Zoom via Digicame Info

    I'm guessing the lens is a collapsible design since as it is shown there is a clear mark in the middle, however the numbered zoom range is 1.5 to 2 centimeters to the left of the centered mark.

    Nikon or Canon ....

    Nice set. I was strongly considering an 80-200 2.8 older version like yours for awhile, ended up opting for a refurbished 70-300mm 4-5.6 G, loss of 1-2 stops but make those back with VR, it is a decent lens. I absolutely adore the 85mm, don't know quite what it is about it, but I really enjoy...

    Nikon or Canon ....

    Yes, but refurbished D7000s are about $650, with patience they've been on 1 day sales (adorama through ebay usually) for as low as $580 - that price is hard to argue! On a budget if the focal length works I'd suggest an 85mm 1.8g on a d7000, that lens is pretty quick for focus on my d600, and...

    Gitzo 2-series tripod or 75 1.8

    Canon Pixma Pro 100 + 13 x 19 Paper - $99 after rebate

    General note regarding the gift card - I have read that you can call and request a check after you have received the card if you would prefer it, though I don't know the turn around time for that. I ended up dumping the card into an amazon gift card since we already buy stuff there all the...

    Canon Pixma Pro 100 + 13 x 19 Paper - $99 after rebate

    2x3, 3:2, tomatoes, tomaaatoes, hahaha. I like printing with the border (12x18) as that gives some space to place in a frame and provides a nice edge if mounted on a board.

    Canon Pixma Pro 100 + 13 x 19 Paper - $99 after rebate

    2x3 works (standard DSLR crop) - you can print 12x18 with a 1/2 inch border all around and retain that aspect ratio.

    Refurb Samsung NX-100 w/ 18-55mm for $106 At Tigerdirect

    There are companies that do large scale refurbishing and sell to retailers, typically through daily deal sites like woot.com and others - often times though they just open the box to check that it works and everything is there...though in this situation doesn't sound like they even did that much.

    Canon Pixma Pro 100 + 13 x 19 Paper - $99 after rebate

    Doubt it'll take anywhere near that long, like I said before for both of my rebates, from the day of me sending them in took 3 and 3.5 weeks to receive the rebates.

    Canon Pixma Pro 100 + 13 x 19 Paper - $99 after rebate

    To be honest ink is the reason I sprung for a 2nd one of these printers - ink, another 50 sheets of paper and spare parts/printer replacement if the first one breaks for another $90 bucks? It is a good deal every time you order! In case anyone is considering this, all you have to do is make...

    Canon Pixma Pro 100 + 13 x 19 Paper - $99 after rebate
