    Micro 4/3 Gobbledegook Sign

    To the naked eye this electronic sign makes perfect sense and was easily read. However when I chimped the photo what you see is what I got, and as you can see it is now unreadable! I assume it has something to do with the shutter speed used, but I’m not sure. I think it might have been an...

    Micro 4/3 Since some have asked ... a mini-review of the Olympus OM-D E-M5 III

    @gordo has encouraged me to give a little overview over my impressions, so I'll oblige - also because I think the Olympus OM-D E-M5 III is a remarkable camera. Let's first remind ourselves what :mu43: was about at the beginning: small, capable cameras and lenses that didn't break the bank. In...

    Micro 4/3 A bit of a quandary

    About a year ago I added a G9 to my armoury to go alongside the X-H1 so I had a decision to make as I can’t justify running two different systems along side each other! --- So as you can see above decisions decisions, which way to flop ummmmmmm. As I had a period of the X-H1 of...

    Micro 4/3 Finally tried some focus bracketing.

    The E-M1 Mk I added focus bracketing with firmware 1.4. After tracking down a video I tried it today. I used the Pana 20mm f1.7 and used a 22 shot bracket which was about 10 more than I needed. Experiments will continue. I stacked the shots in Franzis Focus 4 and it did a good job on the...

    Micro 4/3 Help me bond with the Sigma 30mm f2.8.

    I bought this lens a few months ago as a 1/2 price special from the Aussie agent. At the time I couldn't stretch to the Panasonic 20mm f1.7. I've since picked up a 20mm and can't find any love for the 30mm. Can anyone suggest why I should keep the 30? On m4/3 it is equiv to 60mm - perhaps it...

    Micro 4/3 Rant about Shutter Counts

    Rant on. I was thinking about selling my Olympus EM1 II since I am mainly using the Fuji cameras right now. Today I was going to check the shutter count and take some pictures. Olympus has a cryptic but clear spelled out series of button pushes needed to get to the hidden menus and the shutter...

    Micro 4/3 Bag for Leica typ 109 with grip?

    I recently lost my LX100 - my wife asked whether I had a spare camera that she could have for when the phone camera doesn't quite cut it. After checking when and what she wanted to shoot, I bravely gave her my very useful LX100. :( Then, two days later, I found a very clean used copy of the...

    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 From Fuji to M43

    Sounds like a great camera & lens combo! Have you activated the "Super Control Panel" (SCP)? (on the E-M5 MkI it was off by default). Basically that's all I'm ever using to change settings - the menus are just too ridiculous :) Add the cheap, small and light 40-150mm f4-5.6R to it and you're...

    Micro 4/3 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.

    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...

    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*...
