    Olympus 2017

    I don't know of anyone that got the E-M1 and went "gee I wish I could shoot at faster speeds because sifting through hundreds of images to find a keeper isn't annoying enough already"

    Olympus 2017

    With the disappointment of the E-M1.2, I'm hoping for an E-M5 III. One that is the E-M1.2 without the speed, with an improved sensor focusing on still picture quality and a reasonable price tag.

    EM1 Mark II... is a beast

    Whats up with the panning in 20 - 30 second mark? It is a jittery mess. Actually the whole thing suffers from jitter during pans

    Anyone ever dunk a PRO lens?

    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

    Steve Huff on the EM1 Mk2

    Almost feels like he is being paid by Olympus. Half of his article is Olympus marketing quotes and constant gushing

    Thinking more objectively about E-M1 mk2 Price

    There are none. Early reviews have shown there is no noticable DR improvement and noise improvement is a tiny fraction - almost negligible.

    What on earth is Olympus thinking?

    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. *shrugs* Maybe the strategy is to gouge early adopters for the first 6 months...

    What on earth is Olympus thinking?

    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...

    Cheap Flash TTL cable for E-M1

    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...

    Showcase Olympus 7-14mm F2.8 PRO

    Question on the 7-14.. when taking landscape shots at 7mm, what is the general idea to avoid corner distortion? Is the general premise to make sure vertical lines are straight when composing?

    Showcase Olympus 7-14mm F2.8 PRO

    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

    Landscape Astrophotography with m43 - The shoot and Post Process (Image Heavy)

    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?

    Hi, 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...

    Bags and more bags

    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

    Panasonic 25mm f/1.7 vs Olympus 25mm f/1.8 Samples inside

    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

    Panasonic 25mm f/1.7 vs Olympus 25mm f/1.8 Samples inside

    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 25mm f/1.7 vs Olympus 25mm f/1.8 Samples inside

    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)

    Tell me which lenses to get rid of

    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...

    Tell me which lenses to get rid of

    You are probably right. The 40-150, 25 and 45 wouldn't be hard to let go. The 75 would be tough

    Olympus 7-14mm 2.8 Filter Discussion

    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

    New Filter Holder for Oly 7-14mm m.ZD, for 100mm Lee filters

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...

    This looks very interesting. Looks like this with a Lee Big Stopper or Haida 100mm ND filter would work?

    Olympus 7-14mm 2.8 Filter Discussion

    Oh damn. I'd crave to get an ND on this bad boy at 7mm without vignette somehow. The question then becomes, shoot landscape @ 12mm with the 12-40 2.8 with filter, or 7mm without filter haha
