I have the JJC hood for the 60mm macro and it is ok, dont have the Oly one so cant compare.
But from 2hat I have seen from the Oly hods that came with my pro lenses i would not buy the Oly ones, as they are made to break
I would get the Olympus 12-40 f2.8 pro.
For a smaller size the new 12-45 f4.0 may also be an option, but depending on where you are it is more expensive than the 12-40
Unless you pay for the pto primes i think it would be very hard to spot better IQ with the primes verses pro zooms.
I suppose it would depend on how much to want to sell or market your product, especially if said market seems to be shrinking.
But since most people will probably just complain and buy anyway (me included) it is obviously not worth the financial return to produce a good manual
Had a quick look at the manual, wish they put hyperlinks in it like Panasonic do with their manuals so you can jump around. The manual to me is more like a technical reference book than a how to use the camera manual.
Considering a lot of reviewers indicate the in camera menu is still overly...
The godox 350o is a nice small one and comes with a diffuser. I really like this one, easy to use as well. I also have the X2T trigger but have not worked out how to use it yet.
If you want just manual for macro, a bit bigger and more powerful is the Yongnuo 560 IV. But I found withmine that...
No you are not alone as I purchased one but in the end I just use PD wrist straps
I liked mine but my camera setups are so light I decided I did not need it
when I get a 100-400 I may change my mind that is if the overall weight does not exceed the lug capacity
for my G85 I think that was 1.5 Kg
Looks like an OK incremental release to me, yet to see Australian pricing though.
I don't understand the EVF choice and wish they relocated the tripod mount so the camera can be used with quick release plates without obstructing the battery door. The plates that I use would not work with the...
I gather that means it is a littler better than an achromat, if that is the case it may help to explain the high cost.
But with my skills it may be hard to spot the difference. I will keep an eye out for a discount.
Cant recommend a review but a lot of us here own both brands. We all have different needs and likes so it makes it hard to compare some times.
My take on the difference, from only a stills point of view is
Pro's = Camera controls and menus suit me better. Really like the G85/G95 for...
Looks like these have been out six months or so, fairly expensive as well currently AU$219.00
But they are a large diameter. From memory the large diameter Canon series was also expensive.
If they go on special they may be good for the Oly 40-150 pro...
Lots of them in my yard at the moment, but hard to get a nice shot of them like you have here.
I found one in one of our labs at work that had crawled inside a insect trap that very sticks insides. the poor thing got itself completely stuck down head and all. It took us nearly half hour to...
Thanks for the really good write up. I agree with your pack size I like the 36 liter sizes available in Australia. Don't often see a 40L here. A nice range of packs as well.
When I was younger a needed to carry a rope as well 60L was my preferred day pack size, but now 36-40 does me fine...
I have the Panasonic 14-140 & 100-300, both are nice kit lenses and the 14-140 is quiet good for general shooting with a bit of reach.
I also have the 12-40 f2.8 dont use it much but keep it as it is a really good lens. Keep yours you may regret it if you sell it is one the the sharpest you can...
I don't remember the channel but early this year I watched a youtube test where sandisk cards [I think extreme pro] were used with the latest sandisk card reader and the upload speeds were vastly improoved compared to using third part card readers.
I often wonder about those handles they sell that attach to the hot shoe, they could cause a lot of leverage to the hot shoe depending on the lens attached.
But then again some video people seem to hang a lot of monitors etc on the hot shoe.
Those small rig clamps are good. At first I purchased a no name brand but the joints did not tighten up enough to hold any weight.
When I got the smallrig one it held my led light OK, never tried anything heavier.
with smallrig you can get the articulated arms in diferen tlenghts. I imagine the...
My local store indicated the official Olympus lens increase had not come through [or would not disclose] but it indicated that they thought it would be 15% minimum. Wish I had ordered the 12-100 in the recent special now.
In the past I have normally built my own windows PC's but after my last PC died I decided to give iMacs a chance. To build my own PC with a decent monitor was just about the same as a 2019 iMac 27" so I bit the bullet and purchased one.
Still learning the darn thing which is hard after a...
Some perople have reported using contact cleaner spray works for awhile. Make sure you use something that does not leave any residue. I presume you mean the original EM1
If you like the camera an Olympus repair would be best as they are nice cameras, especiall if you want the tilting only screen...
I think all cameras for the consumer market should ship with the auto mode, especially "P" mode.
For 90% of all my shots I would be using "P" mode as it always selects the largest aperture which is what I normally want when using a kit lens.
I mainly use the 14-140 & 100-33 Panasonic lenses so...
I have learn't not to use micro USB for constant use scenarios, too many failures.
The small port that I use that has not failed is the Apple charging port. Sure the apple lead fail, but you can cheaply replace them unlike the port.
The only time I use a port in a camera is for a remote...
Unless I am not looking at the picture correctly, the lead version has all male plugs from what I can see and I need the single end to be female. The square cube version looks like it would work, but I would like a lead version if I can get one.
Looks like I found one at Jaycar Aust. Had...
I have been looking for something similar. For my Olympus and Panasonic chargers I need a female end to fit the wall plug leads and multiple male ends to fit into the battery chargers. I have found ones like your splitter lead but none with a female for the single end.
From my understanding C7...
Don't know about the Yongnuo, but I looked at the STF-8 and came to the conclusion it was not powerful enough for me. May be if it was half the price for some specific use but not the full price, and it does not seem to get on sale for a good price either.
Looks good to me, but unless I missed it no live ND, but to be expected, have to keep something fo rthe EM1X.
Would have liked more focus points but not essential.
now a joy stick, really nice.
The two points that I like most are;
# OI.Share can now also be used to update the camera firmware...
A very nice set of images, good feather detail.
I like the first and last the most, but i would be happy with any of them.
What camera and lens did you use. As I cant see the exif data.
The video has some real stunners, and the ba kgrouns are really silky, great set
To expand on what @barry13 said, it is easy if you have not done before.
Click on start then run and type regedit, press enter
normally if the keys are visible they are under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software
Expand the software you are looking for and the key will be in the right pane. If it is a...
I checked my house insurance for camera gear and i have to get an add on and name all the items to be covered. But there were so many exclusions it was not worth it. Goods were only covered the same as manufacturers policy an nothing covered for inclement weather when traveling basically only...
Yes looks different.
I will be getting an external drive to store all my files, i hope i can point all the applications to an external drive easily, and create my file structure on the external drive. I like to know where everything is
Definately will be a learning curve
Well as of recently I have three travel tripods.
First I purchased a Manfrotto Befree as I like the lever locks the best. I use this one for travel around Australia when I go by car and only do short walks and I do not plan to use the tripod.
For overseas travel I have two Sirui tripods. [both...
