    Micro 4/3 Unique PL25 reversible lens shade

    Found a really good REVERSIBLE lens hood for Panasonic PL25MM lens that finally answers my quest for a hood that isn't ginormous like original or stores separately as a screw in does. It's 3D printed very nicely and bayonets both directions solidly. Very compact attached either way. Also...

    Micro 4/3 I fell for the antihype… G9 Autofocus is so good!

    I feel like for most of my time in the MFT (since back in 2019) I’ve been being preached to about how bad DFD and contrast based AF is, especially in AF-C. I’ve just followed the party line advice that if you want dependable AF, you need to get one of the PDAF Olympus/OM bodies. I’ve jumped in...

    Sold off all my m4/3 gear years ago, but I've been experimenting again with "Live Composite" Mode on a newly acquired Olympus E-M10 II. I've done my share of star trails, fireworks and night shooting, but I've always been intrigued by LC daytime shooting with a 10-stop ND filter (B+W ND...

    Micro 4/3 Kudos to Olympus repair---so far!

    I have seen and heard so many negative stories about manufacturer repair. My wife's favorite lens, the Olympus 40-150 2.8 had the lens mount snapped off and the internal cables yanked out when she had her fatal accident photographing football. The lens sat in a bag from the date it happened in...
