    GM1 to grip or not to grip

    I've got a HOsON grip that came with mine, I like the access you have to the door on the bottom without having to remove it. Only observation is that it can be a bit tight on the finger tips with a large lens attached.

    Thinking about GM1 as a "Pocket Camera"

    GM1 is still a really small form factor, I can easily slip the camera with the 24 1.4 (smaller hood) into my jacket pocket, something I could not do with say a 1D mark III or a Fuji X2 say.

    Novoflex MiniConnect mounts ???

    Better late than never... I have a Nikon 1 V1 with the FT-1 adaptor and LOVE the MiniConnect! I leave a shoe on the camera, one on my FT-1 and I have both heads (rectangular automatic, and the round manual for my monopod) I have a Fotodiox grip on the camera and any larger shoe would not allow...

    Third party batteries

    I ordered the Wasabi charger and two batteries that indicated as a direct replacement for my Sony NEX-3, both of them got a camera error saying: "Battery not compatible, use correct battery" This probably has to do with the Infolithium piece that communicates with the camera....

    FD 55 1.2 Is One Big Chunk of Glass

    Yes, it's a fairly "plane" lens, one has to "prop" it up. I'm just winging it here folks.

    Showcase Nikon 85mm f/1.8 AF-D Nikkor

    I think the main reason the 85 f1.8 not widely used is the unusual color aberrations. It tends to add add a greenish cast to hair more often than not.

    Who doesn't use video features?

    Unfortunately if a manufacturer leaves out a popular feature such as video, they lose a comparative advantage in the marketplace. I myself have never used the video, or art settings on any of my cameras. I agree with the comment about the trade-offs...if only one could get better quality...

    Thank you, ups!!!!!!!!!!!

    Do you have a local TV station/newspaper that has a consumer advocate guy/gal that can go to bat for you, they love this kind of story, the media would eat this up... a little publicity will stop the finger pointing and get you results.

    Blown away by the E-P1

    I sold my NEX-5 and am expecting a NEX-C3 next week. In the mean time, I pulled out my E-P1 which I've pretty much retired as it just doesn't hold a candle to the Sony. Well, just bought a Nikkor 55mm 1.2 and adapted that up to the old PEN and I must say, the Olympus still surprises now and again...

    Well I'll be coming from a NEX5 which isn't much different from the Nikon but do want to get my hands on a 3!

    E-P3, 75/300 vs Squirrel

    I'm considering an E-P3 and curious about your comment, nearly silent compared to what? (I have an E-P1, is it much different than that?)

    How to get sharper images?

    Could be motion blur, do you use IS and if so, what focal length is it set at?

    3rd UPDATE: EP3 vs EP1 Experience Diary

    Apparently Olympus puts things in two categories, stuff you can replace that is priced and available for retail and stuff that requires opening the camera up that they feel they need to do.

    3rd UPDATE: EP3 vs EP1 Experience Diary

    Thanks Tom! Just got off the phone with them, they said I can send the camera in and for $168.85, they'd replace the plate. That's about what the camera's worth so I'm not sure what I'll do at this point.

    3rd UPDATE: EP3 vs EP1 Experience Diary

    Got it, well...I had noticed a bit of jiggle in the viewfinder and the camera tripod connection was firm. So I realized it was the bottom plate that was flexing, then the fateful day that I thought I'd loosened the tripod head more than I did and pulled up on the lens for a shot, only find the...

    3rd UPDATE: EP3 vs EP1 Experience Diary

    You mentioned that the bottom plate is different in composition from the E-P1, I'm curious about this because I had an issue with mine (E-P1) using a, bit larger Nikon lens and adapter that actually bent the rather thin bottom plate on the camera that was mounted on a tripod.

    E-P1 body case issue...

    The bottom of my camera not only flexes/jiggles when mounted on a tripod with my 105mm Nikkor, one of the assembly screws actually pulled through the metal and the whole piece bent away from the body. I was able to straighten the piece but the camera is now "branded" sigh. Anyone else...

    small tripod/gorilla pod suggestions?

    Check out the Jr. it's supposed to be smaller and lighter and therefore perhaps even a better fit for your needs, let us know how you do!

    small tripod/gorilla pod suggestions?

    The stock head is great, I just like the convenience of the quick disconnect...the one I have is the Clamper, not the Clamper Jr. which was not available a year ago, it is now. These are solid and mine weighs 1.1lbs. Here are pics with the stock head...

    What are your E-P1 w/ Nikon lens settings?

    Thanks Mr., I mean Brian. You can now see by this writing that I am grateful for your prompt reply, what you can't see is the wisp of smoke that is coming out of my left ear as my brain gradually grinds it's way to enlightenment.

    What are your E-P1 w/ Nikon lens settings?

    Appreciate the prompt reply 151, makes sense. for this lens, 50mm, what is the actual focal length I would enter? (seems there would be math involved, in which case I would defer to my 10 year old) It's currently at 35mm...

    What are your E-P1 w/ Nikon lens settings?

    Got it, thanks! I've set the IS for 35mm which I think is correct for the 50mm no? I've also saved the second reset slot for re-doing everything when putting this lens on.

I don't think I'm quite there yet...I guess a class in camera 101 may be in order as I'm not sure how one knows what to set the shutter speed to give the correct exposure, additionally if I want to use the shutter speed for effect. I was told by the camera place...
