    Micro 4/3 The GX85 Arrived Today - First Impressions

    The Panasonic GX85 arrived today. Here are my first impressions. It is the exact size that I wanted for a coat pocketable, minimalist camera. The weight in hand feels good. Makes the camera feel robust and durable. I like the off center EVF. While not the biggest or best - it is servicable...

    Micro 4/3 Back to building up M4/3 setup.

    I am still getting used to shooting the Micro Four Thirds format, from the 4:3 aspect ratio (I have gotten used to shooting 3:2 and I found it easier to work with for A3 prints that I usually do and my 16:9 4K Asus Pro Art monitor) to the DoF difference at all apertures up to f 8. But while I...

    Micro 4/3 OM-1 First Impressions

    Haro ... it's been almost a week with the OM-1 and even though I haven't gotten out much to make images because of the weather but also getting my first tattoo has kept me short on how long I use the camera in a day. These are first impressions and some thoughts in my head and putting them down...

    Micro 4/3 Olympus AF near/far hack

    So a camera hack just dawned on me. If you’re a G9 shooter, one of the great little custom options is the AF near/far focus that you can assign to custom buttons. We’ve probably all been there where you’re wanting to focus on something up close, but the AF keeps wanting to grab the background...

    Micro 4/3 To OM-1 or To G9 II

    Haro ... the thread is not meant to be a versus situation but more of a conversation on what your and other people's needs might be. I have spent the last few weeks reading as much information as I can, and today I watched every single video on YouTube about Panasonic G9 Mark II (but that's more...

    Micro 4/3 Remembering Nam Ing (Nam from Sonoma)

    Many of you from that other place might remember Nam's adventures and his tragic demise on one of those adventures. His effort and results were always inspiring to me. Occasionally I think about his threads and the tales he'd share in producing his fantastic results. As far as I know, he pretty...

    Haro. I am curious what do you guys and girls think about the discounts that will come for Black Friday. Will you be buying anything or looking for something might be cheap enough to tempt you? I'm asking here because I am looking/thinking at switching to Olympus OM-1 and I am curious to see if...

    Micro 4/3 Changing the mix in my M43 system

    My "system" had risen to 4 cameras and my lens count to 11. With the acquisition of the gh6 last December I thought I was in "all done". At 74 I thought I had my dream system. Then the G9II came out with 3 benefits over my G9s that will be of benefit to the way I image. I wasn't done. But now...

    Olympus Olympus sneakily announcement of the TG-7 yesterday

    In the shadows of the G9 MkII release, OMD dropped the new version of the rugged, diveable camera: DPReviews announcement. Seems to be more of the same, nothing much new that I can find, a more grippable grip and the possibility to shoot video in the vertical postistion seems to be the major...

    I have an opportunity to purchase an E-M10 II w/the 75-300 II + 14-42 EZ for below fair price, but it would mean I’m no longer saving for one of the E-M1 bodies and/or nicer weather sealed lenses. The E-M10 II option would be a fun knock around and excuse for dabbling with other inexpensive...

    Panasonic Why no meta data?

    Recently bought a second G9 and noticed that when I upload photos to the computer there is no meta data on camera settings...shutter speed, aperture, ISO. My other G9 includes this meta data...can't find a Menu setting to initiate this info and would appreciate any suggestions. TIA

    I just got back from a trip to Wales, and this was my first chance to put the OM-1 through its paces.

    Micro 4/3 OM-1 Front and Rear Dials

    So I just got an OM-1 and the front and rear dials are pretty stiff. With my O-M1.2 I can easily turn the front and rear dials one-handed, even at the same time. That is not the case with the OM-1. If I don't really press my finger slips without the dial turning. Normal? Do they loosen up?

    First photos with this lens on my E-M5.2. Inevitably at f1.4...I'll give it a bit more of a test tomorrow but the lens feels like a quality item. Solid metal construction and very smooth aperture and focus rings.

    Micro 4/3 Travel tripod recommendations

    I'm talking about an OS family holiday with an OM-1. I'd rather shoot hand held than take the Gitzo but a small tripod might be nice for the occasional macro or landscape. At this stage, I intend to take a 12-40 f2.8, 60mm macro and 17mm f1.8.

On my (very abused) G85s and GX9, there is the menu field that allows for 1st curtain and 2nd curtain shutter release. According to the manual...
