    SD to CF card adapters.

    As I have acquired two 4/3 Olympus bodies, (a 400 and a 410) which uses CF cards and the obsolete Oly cards. One of the bodies came with a 2 GB CF and one with a 512 MB Oly card, so I need something to use for both. I have been ogling CF cards and stumbled over the SD to CF card adapter...

    Micro 4/3 Olympus 100-400 vs 300 Pro

    Who here has owned or used both these lenses? I’d love some insight or opinions. I used to own the e-m1x, and also had the 300mm pro and 1.4x tele. I made some great photos with this combo, and found the lens in particular to be outstanding. However, after CAF frustrations with the x, and also...

    Micro 4/3 Olympus 40-150R Lens Question

    So I just bought a used 40-150R lens off fleabay for $70. Silver lens to match my silver M53. Looks in very nice condition. It does have an issue when zooming out in that when it reaches around 70mm the barrel will noticeably slow/bind. At that point and further it is not a smooth zoom out. It...

    Micro 4/3 Showcase Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm f/1.2 PRO

    This lens doesn't seem to have a showcase yet, so I'm creating one. The Olympus 45/1.2 is extremely well-regarded for posed portraiture, but since I don't really do that genre, here's some street musicians instead. To start, here is an erhu (a traditional Chinese bowed string instrument) player...

    Hello, I have a passion for photographing insects, and love my little TG6, but I need a tripod.

Even with photo stacking, sometimes my old hands can't be...

    RAW processing for Olympus M5 Mk3 images

    Hi as I have a good tax rebate I decided to update my M5 Mk2 to the Mk3 as people are telling me it's a good upgrade. I didn't think to check about software however, and as I use a standalone version of Lightroom 6.14, it seems the RAW files aren't supported. I'm aware there's a free...

    Micro 4/3 Olympus 40-150 vs 40-150 (Battle of the Pros)

    Has anyone shot with both the 40-150 2.8 and the newer 40-150 4? I’m strongly tempted to go with the 2.8 because of the price of the new f4, but obviously the new f4 is compact enough to be tempting, since it’d be a dual use landscape/near field wildlife option. The ability to use TC’s is...
