    Micro 4/3 Panasonic's in-camera Monochrome filter/s

    I am currently using a slightly out-of-date Panasonic Lumix GX8 camera - but like quite a few Lumixes I've used in the past, it features some nifty in-camera monochrome 'styles'. Which, to be honest, most of the time I never use - I've always tended to do monochrome conversions from RAW files...

    Micro 4/3 Peebles Island -- last day of the year

    A gray, grim day. The water going over the dam was amazing. The eagles nest looked forlorn. This was the only wildlife we found. The water flow almost flattened the rapids. Cheers, Jock

    Micro 4/3 Startling Comparison ...

    Just had to find out what all the fuss was about the Olympus 12-100 f4 Pro lens, so I rented one to compare with my Lumix 12-60 f3.5-5.6 and my Lumix 45-175 f4-5.6. Now, both my Lumix lenses possess extremely good IQ, but I didn't expect them to be as good, if not better than the Oly 12-100...

    Micro 4/3 My first ever JPEG only shoot, in the orchard

    As part of my cunning plan to stave off insanity during the covid situation I've spent some time trying to set up satisfactory jpeg outputs from some of my Panasonic cameras. This morning was my first attempt at anything other than a standard test subject, the view from my kitchen door. My...

    Micro 4/3 Foul weather camera -- first light

    Thanks to the kindness of one of the denizens here, I am now in possession of a camera that will be my go-to rig when the snow flies, the rain falls, the sleet drives, etc. It is an Olympus OMD E-M1 original edition, fitted with the Olympus 14-150 MkII. This gives me 28-300 e, extending to 600...

    Micro 4/3 Favorite walkabout prime?

    I have the Olympus E-M5i. I am now carrying it with a 35mm adapted lens. I am thinking of moving to a AF prime, in the same general focal length. I shoot almost all outdoors, in all light conditions, and am looking for the cleanest detail and color, that I can get. My budget is very tight. The...

    Micro 4/3 Adjust lens mount of E-M5.2?

    The mount of one of my E-M5.2s is quite tight. Tight enough to be a "bother" when it is used. Has anyone here ever adjusted your lens mount? Any special secrets? I'm sure it is "within tolerances", but surely mine is not the first one to just be too tight to mount or remove a lens.

    Micro 4/3 EM5 mark iii shutter shock

    So, I’m playing about with the above mentioned camera and try as I might, I can’t seem to get a sharp image. I “think” I have anti shock shutter options on , set at 0 seconds. Unlike the older models, there is no “diamond” option to select. It appears from the manual that the turning on of...

    Micro 4/3 The Pergear 25mm f/1.8 - cheap fun

    A week or so ago, I bought a lightly-used Olympus E-P3 on a whim - I'd always wanted one - and the gentleman who sold it to me included a very inexpensive lens which he said he had no need for, but claimed was rather decent. The lens is made by Pergear - a Chinese company I know nothing about -...

    Micro 4/3 Despite lust towards FF and DSLR dinosaurs, I'm just drifting towards m4/3...

    Yeah... the title has it. The optical viewfinder appeals to me but when it comes to shop lenses for this new system I just can't seem to find anything that I'd like. For example... I'm visioning an older 70-200 mm lens to play around with Nikon. I'm imagining an old f/2.8 design won't be...

    Stroll A walk in the woods

    With my GX9 and 12-32. The light was quite gorgeous today - soft and diffuse, after the night’s rain. #1 is RAW edited in Color Efex Pro, #2 is RAW edited in Lightroom, 3 and 4 are unedited JPEGs using the “scenery” colour setting in camera.

    Micro 4/3 7 Artisans 60mm f2.8 macro

    I've just got this lens so these are very initial comments. Firstly, wow, it's a solid, heavy beast of a lens. It must be milled from solid adamantine, I reckon. Here it is next to the 35-100 (admittedly tiny) lens that came at the same time. Second comment - as you move the focussing ring, it...

    Micro 4/3 Best MFT camera body for Panasonic 100-400

    I have the Panasonic Leica 100-400mm and I am quite impressed with the image quality when all goes well. I currently use the lens with an Olympus Pen F. After twerking around with the AF settings I am doing OK with daytime shots of things that don't move too fast but have difficulty focusing in...

    Micro 4/3 PanLeica 25 vs Olympus 25 vs Panasonic 20

    I just completed a comparison of the P14mm / PL15 / O17 / P12-32 in which I decided to hang on to the P14 for size and the PL15 for focal range, image quality/rendering, and a couple of handling points. One of those points is I'm getting use to bigger hoods that don't reverse and make it so I...

    Micro 4/3 Nice Lens but .....

    Recently rented an Olympus 12-45 f4 Pro and in comparison to my excellent Lumix 12-60 f3.5-5.6 the Oly produces images that are a bit better overall ...... just a bit. It is a very nice lens, very well made and sized about perfect. But, in comparison, I'm having great difficulty in accepting...

    Micro 4/3 Pan 14mm / PanLeica 15mm / Oly 17mm / Pan 12-32mm (IMAGE HEAVY)

    This won't be a direct "how is the corner sharpness at f/4" type of review. Instead it will be a much more personal review. How does the different angle of view look on an image like this? Can I focus close enough at this focal length with this lens to get the image I'm looking for? Are...

    Micro 4/3 M4/3 superzooms: any consensus about filmlike rendering?

    I think everyone agrees, when looking at MTF charts and brickwall tests the Olympus 12-100 PRO wins everything else and for a good reason. So it's objectively the best superzoom lens to get. But what about the subjective matters... Say one enjoys particular imperfections in bokeh, now...

    Micro 4/3 4x5 with a m4/3 as a back

    So awhile back I posted pictures of my hacked up field cam. I picked up another E-PL1 as a data back for it. So I took this out today: And got these shots of the usual suspects with it. Horizon? What's that? :dash2: I need to remember my tripod next time... :doh:

    Micro 4/3 I’m sure there is something wrong with me - dipping back into m43

    I’ve always wanted to experiment with the Olympus EP5. The one thing holding me back was the fact that I require a viewfinder for the cameras I use. I always found in m43 that it was more cost effective to get an OMD or the PEN-F instead of the standard PEN line. well, someone here on this...

    One of my all time favorites, I keep going between this, the Pan 14mm, and PanLeica 15mm. I'll probably pick up another 14mm, but this time I think I'll just keep the 17mm as well.
