Dumb question, but aren't the E-M1 and Olympus Pro lenses weather sealed? I guess thats different from going swimming with it, but I thought a bit of water wouldn't hurt? I've washed my E-M1 and 12-40 pro lens without issue in a sink over a tap
I've got this lens along with the photospheresg filter solution 10 stop Haida and 3 stop hard grad. Going overseas soon so planning on giving it a whirl
Any tips on how to get the best from this lens? I understand to avoid distortion it should ideally be used with the center aligned with the...
Improved noise reduction, improved resolution, 4k video, better EVF and C-AF, high res mode for landscapes
Even as a hobbyist, i've used most of the features of my E-M1 so was looking forward to the next iteration.
Maybe the strategy is to gouge early adopters for the first 6 months...
As a hobbyist - m43 system was perfect in late 2014. Having never bought a serious camera, m43 was right up my alley. Smaller sensor that still delivered amazing IQ and excellent prices, and the lens lineup was steller.
I bought an E-M1 kit with a 12-40 pro lens kit for $1,400 AND recieved a...
Update - the cable I purchased arrived and works successfully with my E-M1 and Nissin i40 in TTL
I bought this cable
2.5m Flash SYNC E-TTL Off-Camera Double-Hot-Shoe Cord Cable for Canon OC-E3
It was a Flash SYNC E-TTL Off-Camera Double-Hot-Shoe Cord Cable for Canon cable
Hi, I have a Nissin i40 flash and want to use it off-camera on my E-M1 in TTL mode with a cable for some macro work.
I've been doing lots of research and whilst the Olympus FL-CB05 will 100% work, it's very expensive. I've seen a variety of cables and discussions.
The JJC cable doesn't seem to...
It's not the greatest shot, but first attempt at a live composite and using the 7-14mm. Had some thunderstorms so tried setting it up in the backyard. Didn't capture much unfortunately. Very minimal pp. I used a flashlight on the foreground, probably a bit fail lol
I don't have an intervalometer. Does the E-M1 have one inbuilt? Or am I out of luck and have to watch the camera and manually click to start another shot?
So 30 shots @ 25 seconds = 30 shots * 50 seconds (dark frame subtraction) = 25 minutes. is that right?
I wanted to get some tips from you fellow astrophotographers. I've never done astro before but love the pics I've seen for the milky way. I'm from Sydney so light pollution galore so no chance of it happening here.
I'm travelling to Fiji Islands soon which is less light polluted so very...
Update bought a cheap Lowepro event messenger 250 for $50 AUD I found locally by chance. Will be enough for 3 pro lenses, E-M1, a flash, laptop, iPad and another lens I reckon. Interestingly the 150 was $65 AUD.
It's a pretty big messenger bag but light as 800 grams
Yes I suspect that since I had it on Aperture Priority mode, and Olympus 25mm seems to bit a bit brighter at the same F Stop to Panasonic, this could be the cause. Although the Olympus has a faster shutter speed than the Panasonic to compensate..
I'll check the data tomorrow
They were on a Joby Gorillapod on a table. I think it's also documented previously that the Olympus is slightly wider than the Panasonic at 25mm
In Robin Wongs comaparison with the 25mm Oly to 20mm Pana:
I also observed the same behaviour that the Olympus is slightly brighter at the same...
Panasonic @ f/8
Olympus @ f/8
100% comparison Panasonic left Olympus right @ f/8
Summary: to me the Olympus seems a tad sharper. But at quite a bit more expensive, Olympus needs a price drop!
The Olympus colours also seem to pop a little more (check out the sky)
I recently had both of these lenses in my hand for a short period of time and decided to do some comparisons.
First some comparison shots. The Panasonic feels lighter but it slightly bigger/longer. The Olympus filter collar ring is not on the lens
Next some picture comparisons. This...
40-150 f/4-5.6 is sold
25mm 1.8 is sold
The 45mm 1.8 will possibly be next as it's a portrait lens and I can get by with the 12-40, 40-150 or the 75 for it - I only do portraits when it's planned really
I'll keep the 75mm 1.8 for a while and see if it gets used
Unsure whether i'll miss a...
Soon to be kit in the next couple of days:
Olympus 7-14 2.8 PRO
Olympus 12-40 2.8 PRO
Olympus 25mm 1.8
Olympus 45mm 1.8
Olympus 40-150mm 2.8 PRO + 1.4 TC
Olympus 40-150mm f/4-f/5.6
Olympus 60mm macro
Olympus 75mm 1.8
I think it's time to get rid of some
The hard decision is deciding what...
I have a thinktank turnstyle 15 but my kit is now changing so I think I'm going to need a new bag. The kit is
40-150 pro with TC
Then bunch of filters, adapters, batteries, blower etc
I also have some other lenses like 45mm prime and 60mm macro but probably wouldn't...
I did see that thread too. Can you report back on how it performs?
I also wonder how the screws work, would it damage the lens hood?
The photosphere.sg solutions seems to be the next "economical", for $150 SGD you get the Haida filter holder and mount for 7-14 and no vignetting at 7mm
1. on the 7-14 Pro kit:
Adapter with customized rails I & II, the maximal possibility of using your 100mm filters on your M.Zuiko 7-14mm.
What are the customized I and II rails? What is the difference? (I've never used a 100mm x 100mm system)
2. Does the pro kit allow for...
Looks like there is 2 current solutions on the market - working with 100mmx100mm filters with both saying no vignetting at 7mm as long as you don't rotate the filter as at 7mm length it uses the full 100mm filter
