    My favourite (I have three) is the National Geographic Earth Explorer Backpack. It's by no mean the perfect camera bag but I don't think there is such a thing. I still live in hope though. I like...

    Camera Topics Re: You need to see this.......

    Brilliant! There are some very picky comments. I'd be overjoyed with any one of those shots but what do I know. I had just about weened myself off the desire for the 300mm. But this has rekindled...

    Camera Topics Re: OM-D M10 Presets

    I use the mysets for radically different shooting modes. However, I wish Olympus allowed one to give the mysets meaningful descriptions. My memory just isn't that good.

    Other Techniques Super 8 Movie Prtojector Repaired

    OMG, you have totally turned me off scanning. At least with cameras we have DOF and focus stacking if necessary plus it's all done in one click. But, yes, large format film is something else. ...

    Macro Re: 35mm slide duplication

    That's curious because other research I've done indicates that camera copying is quicker. A camera does 16MP in a fraction of a second. A flat bed scanner might do a number of slides in one go but...

    Yes, there are way too many non-intuitive interrelationships between functions. One wonders if these are logical or just software bugs.

    Macro Re: 35mm slide duplication

    That's certainly an option. However, the ES-1 is designed for use with Nikon's 55mm and 60mm macro lenses so I'll probably need an extension to use it with the m4/3 60mm. I have ideas of how I can...

    Perhaps the shutter is opening but taking a long time to close because of the low light entering the pinhole.

    I went from the E3 to the E-M1. It was a quantum leap. Actually I love the EVF. It does so much more once you get used to it.
