    Micro 4/3 How I process my stacked photographs

    A quick and modest description - perhaps a clumsy one - of my procedure when making stacked photographs. I do like the final result of most of the time. I always try to avoid a harsh HDR which I am not very found of. Comments welcome. Thank you for your attention. A - Settings in camera My...

    Olympus to exit, or at least scale back, from the digital camera market?

    Well, here's something unexpected... Olympus might be looking at either exiting entirely or at least scaling back from the digital camera market. This follows the news that investor Robert Hale has been added to the board of directors. The move from China to Vietnam for their camera...

    Micro 4/3 Who needs willpower!

    At the end of 2018 I swore blind my spending on lenses was to stop for a year! You knew it made sense!😊 Well this is where the dreaded GAS got hold of me and yes the plastic was splashed, in my defence I was just keeping the credit card ticking over, honest! Anyway I was seduced by the charms...

    Perhaps, he doesn't look but he is a photographer working on the field. He has a printer so he can sell his photos as fast as possible.

    Micro 4/3 From Fuji to M43

    Ok. I've bought a new Olympus OMD EM5 mk2 + 12-40 f2.8. Almost lost the plot with the menu/set up in the first couple of hours. It's still giving me grief after 36 hours. I am getting there though. I am getting to like it. The 12-40 f2.8 is a fantastic lens. I reckon another 24 hours fiddling...

    Micro 4/3 Samyang Fisheye arrived today.

    I've owned the 7.5mm f/3.5 from Samyang before so was keen to add a copy as I re-enter :mu43:. My as new s/hand lens arrived a few hours ago. I found Paintshop Pro to do the best job of de-fishing, much better than Fisheye-Hemi. A few samples including a 3 shot pano not defished. PSPro defish...

    Review - Minico Half Case for Olympus PEN-F

    Way, way back a few years ago I had the great fortune of being able to meet up with one of the members of a forum I frequent. Paul from mu-43.com was looking to buy my Olympus EM1.2 and since he was going to be in town we decided to meet and proceed with the sale. While there, he showed me his...

    Micro 4/3 Oly 14-150 arrived today.

    My :mu43: kit is coming together. The E-P3 is back on ebay and my E-M1 MkI and Oly 60mm macro lens were joined today by a brand new 14-150mm f/4-5.6 II. It's not optically fast but is very versatile. A couple of shots from the back patio.

    Micro 4/3 Initial impressions of the GX85

    I like this camera. A lot. It seems “right sized” to me . . . not too big, not too small. It fits in my 11” x 9” x 3” shoulder bag with the 12-32 attached and the 45-150 next to it with room to spare. The “rangefinder” form factor seems right to me as well. It’s designed in such a way –...

    Micro 4/3 Should I upgrade?

    I've recently bought back into :mu43: with an E-P3, 14mm, 14-42mm, 60mm macro and VF-4. Being honest I'm a bit underwhelmed with the E-P3 and am now lusting after an OM-D EM-1 body (MK I). Offloading the E-P3, 14-42 and VF-4 I'd need to outlay another $300. My main cameras are a Sony RX10 III...

    Micro 4/3 Anyone had experience with the 7 Artisans Fisheye.

    I've recently bought back into :mu43: with an E-P3, 14mm, 14-42mm, 60mm macro and VF-4. I previously owned a Samyang fish eye but recently noticed the 7a version at about 1/3 the price. Any comments? NEWYI 7artisans 7.5mm f/2.8 Manual Fisheye lens for Micro 4/3, SONY NEX E mount | eBay

    Micro 4/3 Talk me out of the LX 100 ii (or D-Lux 7)

    Hi folks. I haven't commented much recently, but now need some feedback. I'm about to pull the trigger on the LX100ii, but I'm really hesitant as it's a good chunk of money and a reasonable investment for me. (Ok - I'm also looking at the D-Lux 7 for the longer warranty and yes, the *vanity*...

    I’m happy to report that my new G9 is back from hospital after being repaired and all appears to be tickety boo! The engineers report informs me that the SD card door assembly and the rear grip have been replaced! Pleasingly the camera looks like new. And none of my settings has been altered...

    G9 rubber cover peeling!

    When I received a brand new G9 + 12-60mm in August I was thrilled, thinking this was a camera I could live with for a long time, the image quality was superb, handling brilliant, menu system also very good! But yesterday I was gutted to find that the rubber surface covering the SD card slots...

    Well chaps I finally made a decision and the first tranche of Fuji gear is waiting for a trade in offer from WEX, an X-H1+battery grip combo, Fujinon 10-24mm, 50-200mm, EF 20 flash and two rectangular Fuji metal lens hoods! They will finance the Panasonic Leica 12mm f1.4 lens! The next lot of...

    LX 100 ii

    So finally! Panasonic has now released details of the long awaited successor to the LX 100. Same basics, including the same lens, but a higher resolution sensor and a touch screen. What do folk think? :( :D :confused: I'm maybe interested in this update to my LX 100, although I haven't...

    I’ve had this itch!

    Ya see, I’ve had this itch for several months now and I have convinced myself that I really need to try out the mu4/3 field. This doesn't mean I don’t like my Fuji gear anymore, far from it. But I have this itch to try another system, which needs to be scratched. Had to sell off three premium...

    Customisation of Olympus 5 Mark II

    Hey folks, just your average GAS ramble to come. :2thumbs: The G9 looks good. Really good. The Olympus E-M5 got me into m43 and since then, the Panasonic GM1, GH3 and GH4 have come to the fold. I use the GH cameras for work, but the GM1 is a wonderful stills camera with the small Olympus...

    LX100 and the Night Sky

    Only one shot. I was not really prepared for this, I had just wandered out to see what the clouds were doing... but really, not a bad effort for a small camera. Might have to use a tripod and try harder, hand held is always a bit fraught. Southern Cross with a bit of Star Trailling (alas!)

    Olympus TG-5 - Macro capabilities?

    Curious if anyone has had experience shooting macro with the Olympus TG-5 'Tough' compact camera?

    Considering getting a Panasonic LX10/LX15

    I have been considering getting a smaller 1" pocket camera. Since I have the GX85 already I'm leaning toward the LX10 over an RX100 (III/IV). At least the controls, settings, etc would be the same/similar. Just found out it doesn't have L.Monochrone, I wish it did. Any reasons I shouldn't...

    LX-100 Video - How to Change Settings?
