    Coming from Panny's FZ50 + achromats - see my sig for what and how, macro/nature/meditation (and its practical value to peace of mind) is my thing - and I've recently got a G1 and Oly macro lenses, the 35/f3.5 and 50/f2 with Panny's 45mm macro on the way (bought for a fair price from a gentleman at this site) - needs the extra WD to get light down to front at closest focus, and AF for a better keeper rate - yes, AF.

    Questions : Is it ok to post FZ50 pix here? What about multiple pix in a post, allowable?

    I checked all the Rules and FAQ I could find and didn't find definitive answers.

    Obviously, a field of bees has more than one in it. (:)

    This is a Nomad Bee, native of Oz, roosting in the long grass at sundown.

    Taken with the recently acquired G1 and Oly 35mm macro, too close (1 inch WD) at 1:1 to get light to the front. At least I haven't worked it out yet. (:) p1000766_markberkery. EXIF is in the file.

    All the best. M

    Hello MarkB,

    First... great image!

    We occasionally get a post from a non µ43 camera in some specific threads where folks are anticipating a particular image.

    Being the MU-43 board our purpose to members, and especially new members, is best served when they arrive to investigate and share MU-43 images and find exactly that..

    There is a "sister site" to MU-43 "www.seriouscompacts.com" where they would love to view and comment on images from the FZ50....

    Thanks for sharing, Alan

    Wonderful shot and welcome to the site. I've no issue with FZ50 postings. There's a sister site called seriouscompacts.com that is supposed to be more broad in focus (though it's a bit overrun by Fuji X100 talk at the moment).

    Love to see more of your bee pics. Nicely done.

    Lol. Looks like I didn't make myself clear at all. The bee is taken with the recently acquired G1 and Oly 35mm macro, it's in the exif, just haven't got the lighting right for that setup, for me.

    Also have thousands of FZ50 macro images, never mind.

    Thanks WT. I did find that site earlier and it looked a bit slow. Anyway, I am transiting from the FZ50 to m4/3 and until I've got it (m4/3) figured to at least give me what I now get from the FZ it will be the 2nd cam, not first. So, still plenty of FZ images to come, but not here. (:)

    I have been specialising in native bees recently, honing my bee capture mode, due to the fact they are the only good size creatures accessible to me right now, and come close to filling the frame of my m4/3 1:1 setup. So there will be more.

    The Other Question?

    Thanks Alan, much appreciated. See other reply above.

    The other question : What about multiple (m4/3) images in a post, allowed, within reason?

    Yes, multiple images in a post is done often. Take a look at the travel threads for instance https://www.mu-43.com/f56/ .
    If it's really loads of images then you would be better linking to a image hoster folder or something.

    Ahhh, sorry. I see several folks beat me to my own correction...

    Sure, multiple posts are fine.. there are many many of them.

    You can use the gallery, but due to storage space concerns, it's easier to build up a nice big library of images for upload via a site like Flickr etc.

    Everyone has their own favorite method... there are tutorial here on the board as well. If you ask, you'll get plenty of feedback about other folks favorite sites for photo storage and online posting.

    Cheers, Alan

    Thanks Alan, and Spuff. I have my own storage, so no problem there.
