    Olympus damage codes

    I chime in because I've been looking for them for a long while too, far and wide, with absolutely no luck. This is infuriating in the Internet age, it looks like it's better protected than some military secrets ;-) So if anyone has a lead whatsoever, I too would be very grateful. M.

    Good value lens m4/3rds for beginner portrait

    Before getting carried away, I'd ask what the uni recommends as a system because they may very well have some lens on loan for students. I know that's one of the industry trick to bait young photographers into a specific system, and most of the time the answer will be either Nikon or Canon (most...

    OM 10 Mk 3

    Silent shutter is not the forte of the E-M10.3 ; it's a dedicated mode where all the parameters are baked in, unlike the other camera models where you can use the silent shutter in all PASM modes by selecting it in the drive section. They should have called it "P silent" or something to the same...

    EM1.1 to G85

    I'm late to the party, but I changed from an E-M5.II to an E-M1.I just before summer, and while the E-M5.II is not the G85, I learned that spec sheets are deceitful. On paper, the E-M5.II and the E-M1.I at the latest F/W revision level are neck to neck. Some things are better on one side, some...

    We don't have CL in France but Leboncoin which works on the same basis. When I sell, I factor a 10% rebate in my price, so that I can look to be the nice guy if asked, but it's only on a basis of local pickup, cash payment, in a public place. No exception. When I buy, I offer the price I...

    Reload Firmware

    It does exist on some embedded routers and such. Basically, to work, it needs space for two f/w side by side and an immutable emergency recovery boot loader. Updating erases the most ancient area, and when the writing has been validated, the area becomes the default f/w. If something were to...

    Reload Firmware

    Sorry to barge in without a solution, but the word you meant was "firmware". Firewire is whole other kettle of fish. And to my knowledge (which I hope will be proven wrong), a botched F/W update on a lens requires a trip to the manufacturer because basically you need to desolder the memory chip...

    Anybody heard from @Mattyh?

    I didn't heard from him but I understand your concern. Some people gradually disappear as they move on, that is life, but sometime the break up from the forum is so radical you never know whether it was intentional or due to something more sinister. There are members that left and I never found...

    E-M5 Mk.2 - What is better for battery life?

    This is true but the purpose is only to engage "energy saving" mode (quick sleep in Olympus parlance). Basically, in that mode, when your eye leaves the evf for more than 3 seconds, the camera goes into idle. A tap on the shutter button wakes it up again when needed. See : Setting quick sleep...

    E-M5 Mk.2 - What is better for battery life?

    IMHO, to save battery life the best is to use the energy saving setting. Warning, it's a bit tricky to engage, you need to set the parameter and then switch to EVF. It had a poor wake up time with the earliest firmwares, and gained a bad reputation as a consequence, but this was addressed in the...

    It's really important shot in RAW for a person like me?

    Storage is an interesting aspect of the discussion. I won't comment on Mac, I think I tried most of them since the original 128KB and I never liked any of them. Anyway. When it comes to storage space, there are multiple variables to consider. You have the working storage (the space in your...

    It's really important shot in RAW for a person like me?

    What I meant was, in isolation, all those claims were "correct", but even if you shouldn't be able to perceive a difference, well, on a higher end system you actually do. Ditto for jpeg. Jpeg was made to be displayed on analog CRTs with a lot of assumptions baked in (gamma, colors blending into...

    640 KB should be enough for everyone, who needs more than 24 frames per second, 720 lines are High Def, mp3 was created to match the hearing capabilities of people... I almost forgot, 18 bits VGA is all you need to cover the spectrum of human color vision or so they said. M.

    It's really important shot in RAW for a person like me?

    Raw (at least raws produced by former and current MFT cameras) is as much future proof as is jpeg, for two reasons : a) you can "translate" any raw into Adobe DNG which is lossless and as much an industry standard as jpeg is, with vastly superior capabilities. Adobe gives the converter around...

    Viable alternative for the Oly 14-42 IIR ?

    The Olympus 12-50 EZ ED goes down to 12mm ; it's a bit dim at the long end (aperture is only 6.3@50) but this lens has most of the options usually found on pro lenses. It also has a macro mode. It's not the "best" lens in any sense, but it's really a jack of all trades, and you can get one for ~...

    It's really important shot in RAW for a person like me?

    The crux of the story is to understand the retention made sense only 10 years after the picture was taken (with a war happening in between), and now the archival is a burden which has consequences for a whole family 70+ years ex post facto. End of the parable. M.

    It's really important shot in RAW for a person like me?

    I already wrote that a long time ago in a heated discussion, but shooting raw isn't always for immediate consumption. It's also a way of future proofing your memories. Technology evolves by leaps and bounds. Currently, jpeg technology is at the limits of the capabilities of the display hardware...

    I agree on most everything you write, but you forgot the Olympus 12-50 3.5-6.3 ED ; it's a standard zoom, with a wider range than most (only Panasonic go as wide), extremely cheap, optically adequate, with a handy macro position and 2 zooming mode, either manual or electronic. What sets the lens...

    The 1.1 is just as big as 5.2 with landscape grip, lighter, and more comfortable to handle. But yes, it looks kinda big, nowhere close to 80D big though : it's 1 cm less in each dimension and 230 g (a whole third) lighter. I don't have more trouble carrying the 1.1 than I had carrying the 5.2...

    Building a lens collection?

    The Panasonic 14/2.5 and 25/1.7 are very good performers on Olympus bodies ; the 20/1.7 not so much. The Olympus 17/1.8 is fast to AF, wide aperture and beautifully built, but it's softer than most other Olympus primes and is IMO overrated. The opposite is true for the O45/1.8, a vastly...

    From M10-II to M5-II

    I totally agree. I realized recently that at the latest firmware level, there's very little difference between cameras (high res is still an E-M5.2 exclusive though), but the handling of the 1 is vastly superior and they go for pocket change currently. M.

    From M10-II to M5-II

    I hope you're going to be happy with your choice, I did the same a year ago but since then I've let go the 5.2 and I currently use an E-M1.1. Not to say I never regretted parting with the 10.2 though, so before you commit, some things you may consider : Although limited to full HD, the 5.2 is a...

    Get new lens or new camera? Olympus 12-200mm vs point and shoot superzooms

    I was recently in your shoes, and by and large I still am as my son is about 7. I almost dropped photography for 3 years after he was born, and slowly got back into the fold afterwards. IMHO, no p&s is going to cut it with kids. Shutter lag, slow e-zoom deployment, and slow AF unless you go...

    Yi M1 m4/3 with 12-40 kit lens for $150 new

    I find the Leica-ish design cues interesting, and that's damn cheap for 20 Mpix. But the lack of controls kills it for me. I don't need a p&s. Plus, I checked, I can buy on Amazon USA and deliver to France, but shipping and import fees are $47.34 on top of the $150 price. I can find a lightly...
