Sorry I'm not trying to sound argumentative. Could it be that the larger Oly zooms don't have issues on smaller RF-style bodies is due to the fact that they do have a tripod collar?
Obviously the 100-300mm is hand holdable with quite remarkable results as shown in the image threads in the...
Yes but it is larger than the 45-200mm so proper hand-holding technique will be needed. Guess it's a bit off-topic for the thread but I just thought it was odd to mention of the use the lens tripod collar for additional stability when none exist for the 100-300mm.
I used the same line of thought when opting for RAW captures. WB, sharpening, saturation, contrast all do affect the final image but not worrying about it up front is liberating. Since I'm not as talented nor skilled as the others here, this has let me concentrate on getting things that can't...
I did crop it to 16x10 to eliminate the black rocks at the bottom for my wallpaper. But as Kevin showed, I shouldn't be afraid to crop more to get closer as it definitely invokes a different story.
Thanks Saelee and everyone for your comments! I really appreciate it. :smile:
This isn't the first time Olympus has showed a prototype with had minimal amount of markings. At Photokina this past September, they showed their prototype of a "flagship Zuiko compact".
Which ended up being the XZ1:
Maybe this prototype isn't as far along as the XZ1 was at Photokina?
The app is called RunKeeper. It has both a free and "pro" version (which is free until the end of Jan!). The big difference between the two is audio cues for pace/time/distance.
The website for the app is Track Your Running, Measure Your Fitness, and Improve Your Training | RunKeeper and...
I've taken my E-PL1 out in both rainy and snowy conditions. With rain, I wrapped my camera in a plastic bag to shield as much droplets of water as possible.
In snow, depending on the temperature, I generally haven't covered it up like with rain but I shield it as much as...
The thought of the getting the same shot as others occurred to me as well. Guess that's just the nature of frequently photographed locales. I definitely plan on exploring more unique viewpoints when I get an opportunity to revisit.
Others at Horseshoe Bend had a similar idea as you...
Over the long weekend a few friends packed up the car and headed out on road trip out to Monument Valley near the Utah and Arizona border. Here are some pictures from such an amazing area.
Not too far from Page, Arizona; off Highway 89 there is a small sign to the...
9th O - Observation Deck
Yay! Was hoping this thread wouldn't get forgotten. I have a some good ideas for some of the later letters of the alphabet.
Observation deck atop Mt. San Jacinto at around 8500 ft above sea level. Normally the desert valley floor would be visible but a winter...
I have been re-organizing my photos and along the way picking out a few for use as desktop wallpaper. Normally I bombard my close friends and family with these sorts of photos and show only the better ones online.
I thought it would be great to get some additional input and insight so as to...
I had similar feelings about the 40mm as well and had starting shopping around for alternative options. I decided to give it one last go around and use it exclusively for several weeks. It's now one of my favorite lens. It's quicker to focus since the focusing ring is around half a turn...

Went on a early morning hike up at Pointe Dume State Beach in Malibu. SoCal has such a varied coastline that it's actually possible to see the sunrise and sunset over the Pacific Ocean. :smile:
Thanks for the info on the zeppelin!
Usually just see the Goodyear one flying around town since it's based out of Carson, CA which is just a few miles from where I was at. Didn't know you could charter something like this. =]
Compositional-wise maybe some different crops to remove some of the more distracting elements like the telephone pole and the green chair. It probably wasn't possible but maybe different positioning of the model so the background elements would be farther out to allow for the person to stand...
I can try to answer a few of your questions:
1) I shoot RAW with my E-PL1 but keep it in the Olympus RAW format. Since I also use LR3, I let the application manage the RAW + metadata. DNG probably would make migrating from LR3 to Aperture or another photo processing application.
2) LR3 has...
IIRC, there was a firmware update for the G1 back around May which added an additional menu option for enable/disable IS on the 14-42mm lens.
Seems to be confirmed by Panasonic Japan. It's footnote item 11 (*11) which states the 14-42mm is supported on G1 firmware version 1.5 or later.
I've had good experiences so far with the Maximal Power brand batteries and like DDG mentioned, they are really inexpensive right now.
I picked up a couple extra in a recent Amazon order to get free shipping. Since I fuddle too much with legacy lenses, the extra spares are great peace of mind.
The EXIF shows:
Camera: Olympus E-P2
Lens: OLYMPUS M.14-42mm F3.5-5.6Shot at 14 mm
Exposure: Auto exposure, Program AE, 1/60 sec, f/3.5, ISO 1600
Flash: Auto, Did not fire
My guess is the OP has some great steadiness.
I typically use the 'Gorillapod' style tripod for most of my photo outings. It's pretty easy to find a spot to place the tripod on; especially uneven surfaces. I often prop the stubby legs against my torso to gain some stability on shots taken a bit below my chin level.
Make sure to get one...
I got a rare chance to tagalong with some much more talented photographers than myself on a shoot for a local magazine/newspaper. I took the opportunity to use some legacy glass for the shoot. They didn't move around much will allowed me to work on my focusing skills. =]
Few hundred more...
Flowers were the first subjects when I first got my camera thought it'd be fun to revisit with legacy glass in hand.

I think what you are trying to say is at 50mm, the objects in the photography are roughly the same perspective/size as your eye vision but 28mm covers the area of your peripheral vision? Then I say try a stitched multi-shot panorama at 50mm and see if that's close to what your eyes see. =]
