    I'm only missing the 20-40. How do you like that one? Maybe one day I'll see it at a good price and snatch one up.

    Live band performance with E-PM1 + SEMA-1

    Well, I would say you did pretty well considering the crowd you were in. The audio is far better than expected for internal mics. I wonder if the internal mics on other panasonic models are as good... It looks like most at least have a 4 step level control.

    Live band performance with E-PM1 + SEMA-1

    I'm pretty sure I used the Panny 14mm f2.5 set to manual focus. Camera was hand held, and if you can adjust the aperture during video recording, I'm not sure how to do it. Does the GX-1 built in mic really handle loud rock music that well? If so, I might consider picking one up. There have been...

    Live band performance with E-PM1 + SEMA-1

    Yellow Brick Road, a Las Vegas classic rock cover band was doing a loud show outdoors on Fremont Street. I was within a few feet of the speakers. Click here for the video. I think I may have found the limits of audio recording (sound pressure levels) with the SEMA-1. I used a Church Audio...

    DxOMark Olympus 75mm Review

    I like #2 better, but I think that has more to do with the background being blurred than the lens quality. The only time I tend to use autofocus is when I'm short on time. It's a nice feature, but I actually enjoy focusing, even with the focus by wire lenses of today.

    Mega Panoramic Composition

    Hugin will also do it in one go, and it's free. It's not quite as reliable or easy to use as Autopano, but it'll save you quite a bit of money. The software that comes with a Gigapan unit works very well, as well, so long as you use the gigapan unit to generate the shots for it.

    Panasonic 20mm and 14mm in low light

    I have the EPM1 and the panny 20. Autofocus is near useless in low light. Can't get it o lock reliably at all. I also have a VF-2, so I've just gotten into he habit of focusing manually.

    what other lenses are there to adapt?

    These aren't the best or fastest and you can't change the aperture, but the pentax auto110 lenses would fit the bill. They are very small, the standard lenses are 18mm, 24mm and 50mm, all f2.8, and they are designed for a piece of film roughly the same size as our m43 sensors. The adapters are...

    Now that the contest is over (congrats on taking 3rd, btw) I have to share this with you. I took this photo nearly 10 years ago now, with my Sony 4.1 megapixel p/s camera. To this day it is one of my favorite shots. Familiar view? I hope I can some day return to Tour Montparnasse to repeat the...

    Thanks for sharing your pics, Mikey. You got some great shots! I fell in love with Las Vegas a number of years ago, and make trips out there 3-4 times a year. In fact, despite the fact that I live 2500 miles away, I started a blog about Las Vegas in October. It's an obsession. There are a lot...

    New 72 Hour Challenge (3-6 Jan '13): Exotic

    Agreed. Great choices! Yekimrd, if you're still in Vegas with a car I recommend both Red Rock Canyon (17 miles from the strip) and the Neon Museum (about a mile from the Fremont Street Experience, downtown) as great places to shoot (and visit) during the day. PM me for more info if you like, and...

    PM-2 vs PM-1

    If you can't lock autofocus on the 20mm, then manual focus is the solution. As long as you have a little time, you should be able to nail focus manually with the magnification assist (easier if you have an EVF). I shoot my autofocus lenses in manual a lot.

    Anybody travel with adapted lenses?

    I have been traveling with some Pentax auto110 lenses, but I admit I probably don't use them enough to justify carrying them. I just find it hard to resist bringing them, as they are so small and light. The 24mm is great for taking pictures of what you can see in a viewfinder, and the 18mm was...

    Dealing with loud sounds

    I (obviously) never inquired with Olympus before trying this setup. I am not sure if the setup I am using could damage the SEMA-1 or the E-PM1, only that it does not appear to have done so in the 5-6 hours of recording that I have done using it. I would be happy to take some measurements from my...
