    How To: Focus Stacking EM-1

    I tried this and failed a couple of times as it's not exactly clear how to use it. I switched on focus stacking, enabled bracketing and then set it to high speed silent and voila it takes 9 shots and stacks them. Hope this helps Cheers Chris

    O.I.Share inop in iOS 9

    Sorry but that's a terrible idea. Devs can't do updates targeted at iOS 9 until it comes out of beta so even if they know there is a problem there is nothing they can do and a 1 star review will directly affect sales. Apple has just banned reviews when running beta OS versions for that reason.

    Trying Mac photos app. Workflow suggestions?

    I agree about the editing, I am used to DxO and the editing controls are definitely not as good in Photos, but good enough for 90% of what I do so I can't complain too much. Hopefully they fix a few things going forward though. I have spent some time with Photos now and maybe I can help with...

    Yes those would be nice features. I use Enfuse currently so no need for hdr but panos would be nice certainly. It's not that I think CC is expensive but if I upgrade every 2 years I think it works out twice the price of buying it outright. Anyway if we are talking about using LR for a DAM I...

    Trying Mac photos app. Workflow suggestions?

    I am really enjoying being able to access any of my finished files on the go. I hate sitting up at a desktop computer editing, I sit up at a bloody PC all day for work and i want to relax at home so I would love to be able to use my iPad for more photo work. Especially enjoying being able to...

    Trying Mac photos app. Workflow suggestions?

    I always thought asking 'am I insane' was the sanest question but there you go. I was using LR but for several reasons am trying to avoid it. Among other reasons I object to paying $10 a month in perpetuity just to have a DAM

    12-40 too big....alternative

    I hate neck straps. I use a Gordy's wrist strap which I love. Could have done with choosing the large size not medium but at least it ain't coming off on its own

    12-40 too big....alternative

    I have the E-M1 and on days when the 12-40 feels too big I take the 9-18 and the 45, both are small enough I don't mind carrying both.

    new Apple Photos app - first impressions

    After my long thread on looking for a DAM and holding on desperately for more information about Photos, I can't decide how I feel. I don't need editing features as I use DxO and not willing to give that up, so I need something I can keyword and round trip to DxO for my editing. Maybe the DxO...

    Window in front of sensor on E-M1

    I fumbled my E-M1 while changing lenses and put a dirty great fingerprint on the sensor. I had my local shop do a wet clean and 6 months later have no noticed any difference (assuming the wet clean strips the anti static coating) and it doesn't seem to have been detrimental to it at all.

    Why not? Custom PASM dial

    I was thinking that what would be great would be to get some stickers made up to go on the mode dial. I never use the scene modes so I would love to be able to set MySet 1 on it and have the mode dial say C1 for instance. No idea how to go about it tho

    Raw vs jpeg: what think you?

    I am sure that the right tool for them was JPG. For me, when I zoom in to 100% and see more detail in the RAW then there is no question.

    Raw vs jpeg: what think you?

    How exactly do you propose converting them? The JPG is a compressed image, RAW is not an image but the raw data from the sensor. How do we reconstruct the raw data from the lossy JPG? Can't be done. That's like taking a finished dinner and somehow reconstructing all the ingredients from it.

    Raw vs jpeg: what think you?

    If you ask me what I think, I say RAW all the way. I can do things in DxO with RAW that I can't with JPG so it's a no brainer

    Need a DAM - any suggestions?

    I am so hanging out. It's such a shame Apple is so secretive, they announced it in June and there has been just radio silence since then. I know they are running a closed beta, but come on, give us some screenshots or something! I can't stand the suspense, it's killing me! I wonder how many...

    Which Ball Head? Quick-Release NO LONGER an option.

    leave QR plate on, annoying for Zathras. take QR plate off, annoying for Zathras. either way, is bad for Zathras. :-)

    Which Ball Head? Quick-Release NO LONGER an option.

    I don't understand how it would not drive you insane having to screw it on each time. I have the RRS BH-55 with a lever clamp plate. There is absolutely no mistaking that lever for anything else. Yes the BH-55 is overkill for m43 but I like overkill.

    Why not? Custom PASM dial

    I found on my E-M1 that if I assigned MySets to the mode dial then when activated they did not reprogram the buttons as I had set, however if I was to manually activate the MySet then the buttons would reprogram themselves correctly. Dunno if that is other people's findings.

    Why not? Custom PASM dial

    The camera I had which suited me the best was my Nikon F5. No PASM dial, just a mode button by your index finger and a wheel by your thumb. Didn't have to take your eye from the viewfinder. What a wonderful camera, pity it shot film... Also having had an F5, it's why I fail to see the point...

    That makes me feel better about the exposed contacts. Thanks.

    Will the world end if I leave my battery on charge?

    Probably. And on another grumpy note - when I bought my spare battery recently, I was very unhappy to see that even when paying $117 for a genuine battery you don't even get a cover for the terminals

    Will the world end if I leave my battery on charge?

    Hi all When I got the E-M1 I read the manual which had dire warnings against leaving the battery on charge after it has completed charging, and IIRC I am also supposed to remove the charger from the socket too. So, bearing in mind that every other electronic gadget I have, has circuits...

    EM-5, Canon 7D and #$&@ menu frustration

    I also think the menus are terrible. Way too fiddly and complicated. Seems to be a theme with Japanese electronics sadly. Like the old days where nobody could set their VCR clock. If they revamped the menus it would definitely make them nicer to use. It feels so primitive when I use my iPhone...

    E-M1 & 75/1.8 meets Special Olympics Tennis

    Definitely do not use C-AF + Tracking, mine is absolutely insane, it wanders off continually. Also I make sure i use the centre grid of 9, and disable face detect.

    E-M1 & 75/1.8 meets Special Olympics Tennis

    Interesting you didn't have luck with c-AF. Mine seems to work very well. Recent airshow took nearly 4000 photos and all but about 50 were in focus. Different type of action I suppose.

    Problems importing E-M1 images to Lightroom

    LR has the option when importing to make a second backup copy to another location. You don't have that aimed at a drive that is full perhaps?
