I've been thinking of getting a second body in the past while which would be good for BiF. I would use my Panny 100-300 II for that purpose. I hesitate between the EM-1 II and the DC-G9.
Anybody has shot BiF with EM-1 II and Panny 100-300 II?
Back in the days, I went kayaking with a Nikon film camera (about 450$CAD at the time, don't remember the model). I put it in a garbage bag. Some water unsurprisingly made it into the kayak, but also into the garbage bag, just a little. Camera was ruined. I gently sprinkle/rinse my EM-5 under...

Beginner's mistake: hand held on a boat rocked by the waves, panny 100-300 II

Should have tried the ISO at 6400 and 12800
Interesting article on DPReview where Canon CEO expects ILC sales to drop and stabilize at around 5-6 million units per year. It seems current ILC market is at about 10 million units. I find it surprisingly low, although I never had any clear idea other than it was shrinking. Nothing to make...
The pictures in this thread are pretty much all I've done with it. I'm going to hopefully use it more in the next two weeks or so as I'll be traveling to Martinique. So far, I'm happy with it.
Do you shoot RAW? What's the ISO and aperture of the shots you took you're not happy with? Do you have...
Yes, I'm planning to join some bird organization in the summer. I find winter birding by -12 +wind a bit too cold on the fingers in spite of gloves. In the mean time, I should get some interesting pictures in Martinique in the coming weeks.
First time I shoot a bird with this lens, what I meant this lens to be used for. All handheld shots at 300mm, F5.6, ISO 200 on EM-5 body. I realize now that 300mm is a bare minimum for birding. No idea about the bird kind, but google image search says it's a japanese rhinoceros beetle (4th pic)...
I'm in the same position here (OM-D EM-5), although I'm leaning towards the G9. For landscape, I think both the G9 and EM-1 II would do an equivalent job. I'm more familiar with Olympus menu system, but I don't mind learning Panasonic's.
Ultimately, to me, it comes down to the following three...
I donno, but, yes, for sure, maybe given the right amount of money...?
What I mean is, does Olympus sell enough cameras to justify what Sony/Panasonic would ask to pay for such a custom sensor? I doubt it. ASICS are very expensive to design. You need to sell a lot of them for it to become a...
It's too bad Foveon sensor hasn't been backed by more camera makers and research. It would have been an awesome way to breath in more life and resolution to M4/3, given much needed improved noise figures. With a 16MP Foveon sensor, we could have had Bayer equivalent resolution about 30MP.
Sounded fair to me. I didn't heard any bashing or non legitimate critics. This camera feels more evolutionary than revolutionary. A BSI sensor to gain that extra half stop of light would have helped a bit. I'm not sure many EM-1 Mark II owners are going to fork 3k$ to upgrade.
I was wondering how I could have missed those landscapes, but I actually did the Cabot Trail back in 2005, had a good time hiking and taking pictures with my Canon Elph Sd200 3MP!!!.

I feel similarly that Olympus is in a tough position. But even if Olympus ends up in a sub-niche market (with the advent of smartphones, it seems like the whole dedicated camera market is a niche market now), I'll be happy. I still have my 'old' Om-D Em-5 and I'm planning to keep it as a second...
Did the EM-1 Mark I ever sold under 1000U$ from an authorized dealer? I'd think the Mark II should follow a similar pattern, unless they're badly overstock when the Mark III comes out, which would surprise me.
My first foray into super telephoto lenses.
I bought this lens for birding, but this is the only flying thing I could catch today. Not really the season for birds anyways, but I'm going to Martinique in a few weeks where it might get more interesting.
Pardon my French but, asshole...
Just got myself the Pelican 1500 for storage, added a desiccant box to it.

Can't help but feel the same about you. You are quick to assume about my ignorance, instead of trying to understand what I meant. Why so quick to judge? Perhaps because of personal insecurity or because it makes you feel smart? But, please, tell us yourself!

First time using my 25 mm 1.8. It's interesting how it forces you to think more about composition (at least for me, compared to a wide angle where you have more room for cropping).
f2.8, 1/400, ISO 200
f1.8, 1/800, ISO 200
f5.6, 1/125, ISO 200
The LX100 II seems to be generally a better option, but weatherproofing is important to me, and if I was buying an enthusiast compact, I'd also be considering the Canon G1X Mark III.

By definitions, I believe all companies are ethically challenged. They are the embodiment of (tens, hundreds, thousands, ... of) thousands of stockholders who, for the vast majority, just demand profit.
Trying to start a new challenge. Post a riddle with accompanying picture as a hint. The riddle could be the picture itself (but not a location, there's already a thread for that). If people have too hard a time to answer, more pictures can be posted as hints. Ok, I might have watched too much...
I fixed my issue, corrupted catalog. Otherwise, I don't like the way Adobe is going with its subscription based approach. And the Adobe Photoshop Elements doesn't match the features of LR (I'm currently happily dinosaured into LR 4.4 :biggrin: ).
Ok, I've been able to solve my issue. Still interesting to see what you guys are using.
My problem was that my default catalog was corrupted. I concluded that as when I renamed the folder containing my catalogs, re-launched LR, it prompted me to create a new catalog and I was able to import...
Photoshop lightroom 4.4 64 bits has given up on me. I have the latest updates, tried rebooting, uninstalling/re-installing: nope. It keeps crashing when I hit the import button or click import from the menu. There's a thread on Adobe website started in January 2018 and I don't see...
:thiagree:, I was referring, as per my original message (Phoque, Yesterday at 6:58 PM), what was the size of the Panasonic Fujifilm organic sensor as mentioned in comment by Turbofrog, Monday at 12:07 PM. Panasonic Develops Industry's-First 8K High-Resolution, High-Performance Global Shutter...
I wonder what is the size of this sensor. If it's full frame, that sensor would scale down to 9MP for u4/3. But even if they reduced the size of pixels by 2 and developed a 18MP sensor, I'd be very interested.
Plus, discharging lithium batteries produce small amount of hydrogen gas, which is corrosive. That's probably why the manual suggest that batteries should be removed from cameras when not used for extended period of time.

When I bought the Oly 25mm, the seller told me 1 in 6 of these lenses ended up with issues. He wanted to sell me a 70$CAD 4 years warranty. I declined, I never get these extended warranty. So far, I've been lucky. I think if something was really flawed, it would fail within first year of use.
Do you have an electronic assistant like Amazon Echo or Google Home? I wouldn't be surprised to learn someday somebody hacked into those devices and listened to its users.
Oh, wait, it's already happened!
