    Pen-F - Reviews & Previews

    I just saw a review of the EM-5 II with external mics and they didn't sound much different than the internal. The consensus seems to be that for professional audio, an external digital recorder is best - don't even bother with attachment to the camera. Sync with a loud click and you're good to...

    Pen-F - Reviews & Previews

    Hi, There is no mic jack on the Pen F. So Olympus has eliminated the jack under the hotshot that could take an accessory mic in recent bodies, but I think added a dedicated mic jack. So is this the only Oly camera that has NO external mic capability at all????! :coco:

    Apple´s Aperture discontinued: where to move??

    Darktable does not. The number of modules is, however, large and growing. Being open source, it will continue to evolve and 'imitate' the commercial products. If you are wed to specific plugins, this is not a good path for you.

    Apple´s Aperture discontinued: where to move??

    I am definitely in the same camp with the OP... I've used Aperture since day one and have been generally OK with it to date. My biggest quibbles are: the RAW engine for Olympus files and noise reduction. When Apple opened up Photos to developers this past Fall, I was hoping for a lot more...

    New Pens?

    Hard to imagine what the 'three new features' could be based on the rumored specs...mostly just marginal upgrades...bigger sensor, etc. Disappointing that the focus assist light is only that...was hoping for an iPhone-like intelligent flash. Weather sealing is not really addressed...but to not...

    E-M1 Playback glitches

    Hi all, Relatively new to the E-M1, but have had many prior Olympus mFT bodies. The rear dial zoom in playback is a great feature. However, on my unit the rear dial often doesn't work - either there is a delay in zooming in or no zoom at all. Zooming out seems to work fine. I don't recall...

    Olympus Viewer 3

    I too recently gave OV3 another look, but as a Mac user the experience is IMPOSSIBLE. Make any change with a slider, wait 5 seconds, see the effect. This is beyond excruciating. :mad: I DO like the color, clarity and lack of noise compared to Aperture. If there were some way to batch...

    Showcase Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO

    Great series! These two shots are also great examples of how this lens resists flare. I have been trying to MAKE it flare (well, not too hard) - it's a challenge....

    Olympus 40-150 f/2.8 is available for pre-order

    I know the Oly 40-150 extends...does the Pany 35-100? If so, the 'in use' size might be closer to the Oly 40-150 Pro. In any case, it looks like a great addition to the line up for all m43!

    Oly 45 vs OM 85 f2 with Metabones Speedbooster (60mm f1.4)

    I don't think the screenshots do the actual photos justice. Here are two on the OM 85 @ f2 or 2.8 (don't remember!)

    Metabones Speedbooster question.

    On/off? My OM/m43 has no switch. What is it intended to do?

    Oly 45 vs OM 85 f2 with Metabones Speedbooster (60mm f1.4)

    I noticed that the Moonflower on our deck had finally bloomed last night and took the opportunity to do an ad hoc comparison of my Oly 45mm f1.8 with the OM 85 f2 with Metabones. The latter combination yields a 60mm f1.4 equivalent. Set up was simple: fix ISO at 200, stand about 3' away...

    Sigma 60mm - Am I hallucinating ?

    A very tempting lens... I am very enamored with the 60mm focal length. I got there with an OM 85mm f2, which combined with the Metabones gives me a 60mm F1.4. Manual focus, of course, but I'm loving it!

    Metabones FD to m43 Speedbooster

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I just had to comment... I just received the OM/m43 speed booster and, just as you've shown, the Metabones comes through on all fronts: increased speed, mtf, etc. I'm especially impressed with the increase in micro-contrast. This is clearly shown in your...

    Native and Adapted Normal Zooms - a contrarian review

    Definitely a great comparison! I have the E-M1, but only the 40-150 zoom. Was considering the 12-40, but you've got me considering the 12-60 - if I'm gonna have a zoom, why not have the extra reach? Thanks!

    COMPLETED Olympus 75mm w/ hood, silver | Location: USA | Ships: Conus

    My example of Outer Mongolia was intended to illustrate geographic remoteness and not a judgement of the country or people. I do apologize. My hope is that Mike will get paid soon OR put the lens back on sale so I can buy it!

    Best 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-lens kits for your Micro 4/3?

    A little off the wall, but it's my reality: Oly 45 + Computar 12.5mm f1.8 + Oly 40-150 if in daylight, otherwise OM 135mm f2.8 I have the Panny 14mm, but honestly don't end up using it a lot, not sure why.

    Aperture Raw too red at high ISO

    Yes, this is the easiest solution - but it's labor intensive and in many cases, you need to brush in the change on the flesh, rather than apply to the whole photo, ie, extra work.

    Aperture Raw too red at high ISO

    I am a die-hard Aperture user, but find high ISO RAW processing very frustrating for flesh tones. RAW has a strong red/magenta cast which is totally absent in jpegs - and VERY hard to eliminate. It helps to turn 'Hue Boost' to zero, but even so, the result is unacceptable. I offer a case...

    New to using adapted lenses

    Don't forget that the IS in your camera must be set for the FL of the lens as of the benefits of the Oly bodies.

    Hi, Steven is correct: DIY. Webbing is from any good outdoor sports store: EMS, REI, etc. I prefer 1/2", but you may want something wider. The swivel clip is stainless from the hardware store. I use a short piece of parachute cord (also from outdoor sports store) to attach to camera lug...
