+1 for Microsoft ICE (Image Composite Editor) - free from Microsoft on Microsoft Research Image Composite Editor (ICE)
I've used it a bit - works really well. Just be sure to keep the exposure for each of the shots the same.
Have you tried Google's free photo editor 'Picasa'?
It doesn't touch the original files, is easy to use, and allows you to 'export' the result to a JPEG in any size/quality that is appropriate...
Just be careful when installing that you don't allow it free reign to all...
Although written for E-30 and called 'Custom Reset', the operation is the same. Have a look at:
wrotniak.net: Customizing the E-30
You initially 'set' to the setting currently in the camera once (and for the mode P/A/S by the way), then you can reset to these settings at any time.
Haven't posted for a while....but back into the swing again now.
Took the EPL1 + 14-150 out last weekend into Sydney city:
A couple from the new Centrepoint (Westfield) shopping centre:
This is looking down the escalators surrounded by mirrors.
Visited Istanbul last September and spent a few days there before touring down the Med coast. Enjoyed every bit of the visit, and found Istanbul a fascinating city.
Here is on of my photos from the trip - this was taken while on a ferry, on the EPL1 with ZD 40-150+MMF2. Also...
If you go to the menu 'Tools' > 'Experimental' , you will find an option to search for duplicates. I believe this is done by name, and will order by folder.
I file by date and event, so have a folder per month (named as YYMM - eg 1008 is August 2010), and any special events or...
I would suggest you 'right click' on those you don't want to see in the Picasa in the folder and the click on 'Hide'. This will ensure you don't delete the original image. It sounds like you have the same image file in multiple folders, or you may have RAW and JPG in same folder...
Thanks for sharing -
We have just returned from a couple of weeks in Turkey, and really enjoyed Istanbul, and your shots certainly brought back memories.
Here's a couple of my favourites....both with EPL-1 + :43:14-42
Yep, take the plunge and leave the 40D behind :thumbup:
I've just returned from 7 weeks holiday overseas, and the EPL1 did us proud (one shot here and see my Picasa site link below for more.....).
The only issue I faced was changing between 14-42 and 40-150 now and again, so last week, I...
Here's another one.....
BTW, the 'spectacular flowering shrub' earlier in this thread is the 'Callistemon' - commonly called the Bottlebrush, and they are flowering profusely in Sydney at the moment, due to all the rain we have had recently.
Bought the 14-150 on B&H website on Thursday night last week, it was on my doorstep Monday morning 09:30 am :eek:!!!!
And with the Aussi $ = US $, makes it a great purchase :2thumbs:
So, now waiting on good weather to go and use it :smile::smile:
Hmmm..that's a worry.
Have you logged on and checked the tracking info on the order? This will tell you whether it has been shipped or not.....
- Click on the track order link top right hand side after log in to BHPhoto
- click on the order number, and this will display the summary - make...
I've used them 3 times. Delivery cost has been about $60 each time with "UPS Worldwide Saver" and delivery has always been within 5 business days.
Am planning on ordering some more kit soon, and will continue with same method. Can recommend....
Sure are - with the standard adapter. I recently took the EPL1 away including the (4/3) 40-150 as a compact tele....worked well. I have also used the ZD 70-300 with great success.
This is taken using the 40-150 recently in Istanbul, Turkey - 1/400s, f5.5 at 137mm. This was taken from a boat...
I'm also watching this thread with interest as we will be in Istanbul end of September - seems to be the place to be :cool:.
Thanks for suggestions re places to visit. I am preparing the EPL1 for the adventure - first trip away without an 'anvil' :smile:
ZD 50-200 Mk1 in MF (It is actually quite slow in AF, slower than 70-300). I'll try and add the details to the original post...
As I say, they are often around the yard here, as we live in a 'bushy' area. I have to admit to putting out a little birdseed for them now and again (except for the...
All found in our back yard: ZD 50-200
Sulphur Crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita ) - 150mm@ 1/160sec f4.5
I use my VF-2 when I can't wear my reading glasses :biggrin:
I find it useful in several ways:
when I want stability
when I'm taking movies (easier to stabilise and focus)
in bright light
when focusing manual
I give it a :thumbup: for usefulness
Actually, I think the those pesky sodium lamps actually add something - the houses at the back aren't really that interesting anyway :smile:
Gordon's Bay is a great little spot. We've walked the coastal track around the beaches there - a great day out.
BTW, I note you use...
Another trick - If you aren't too concerned about having a movie button on the EPL-1, you can re-designate it to swap between AF and MF - this is what I have done. Using the movie button gives you fast change between MF&AF. Then in MF mode, the AEL gives me a single AF shot (as per Wrotniak...
...in Port Macquarie (north of Sydney) where the whales have just started their northwards migration.
Gotta say, taking a photo while in a 1-meter swell in a 'rigid-hulled inflateable' boat is not any easy thing to do!
I took the EPL-1 with Zuiko 40-150 (+mmf2) and VF-2. The VF-2 was...
