    So while we're all on lockdown..

    I don't feel bad taking my OM-D with me on the almost-daily walks. I'm out in suburbia, and yesterday I passed exactly three other pedestrians and four bicyclists over six miles.

    Philosophy Gamechanger?

    Nikon D80. My first SLR since the Nikon 6006, which I shelved after lugging 15 lbs of camera gear on a vacation in a shoulder bag. The D80 just outclassed the digital P&S cameras I had been using, and was the camera I learned to actually be a photographer with (along with some serious...

    Micro 4/3 Heads-up: E-M5 III firmware update resets all settings!

    Already did that. I've been using it since the original E-M5 as well. Nonetheless, this is really a bug that Olympus should fix. There’s no reason for it, and it wipes out work that the user has done. And correcting it by reentering all of the settings is error-prone.

    Micro 4/3 Heads-up: E-M5 III firmware update resets all settings!

    Yes, the E-M1.2 and the Pen F do save your settings via Olympus Workspace. The E-M5.3 doesn't. Here's the Support note I sent to Olympus USA this evening: "Olympus OM-D cameras have more than 250 Settings that allow the user to customize the camera to meet their needs; this is great...

    Micro 4/3 Heads-up: E-M5 III firmware update resets all settings!

    Alright, I officially hate Olympus for this now. I spent an hour last night documenting my settings, updating to 1.1, and then reseting everything. Except I missed one thing - Raw+LF (the default is LF). So my shoot this afternoon was all JPEGs - which I never want. My documentation is...

    Micro 4/3 Heads-up: E-M5 III firmware update resets all settings!

    It was quite annoying until they allowed saving them in an update to be original E-M1. It’s really an infuriating downgrade.

    Personal gear review

    Over the last month I’ve aggressively cleaning house and rationalizing my kit. Gone are five Nikon F mount lenses (35/1.8 DX, 11-16/2,8, 50/1.4AF, 70-300G, 80-200/2.8 AF) which I used on the D7000 that’s been gone for years. The two AF lenses date back to my film days in the last century...

    Fuji One of the silliest engineering decisions...

    Flash usually won’t work on silent mode because the flash duration is far too short to illuminate the sensor during the long read cycle.

    Interesting Lens Design Article from Kirk Tuck

    I would argue that all of the lenses from the major vendors are pretty good as well. So I’m not sure how a detailed comparison of all the 24-70/2.8 lenses would help me choose a system. On the other hand, if you need a 600mm fast lens, or a tilt/shift, you know which systems to look at - no...
