    Camera Topics Re: Firmware update for E-M5, ver. 1.2 to 1.5

    Very much quieter generally, except for a faint farting sound when you half press the shutter button.

    Camera Topics Re: E5 and not detecting lens hooked up?

    It is possible to over rotate the lens in the mount, by perhaps keeping your finger on the release button. Just let the lens snap into place.

    Lens Topics Re: Is the m12-35 a match for the 4/3 14-35?

    Just chipping in, but imo the Panasonic 12-35mm is a fair bit better than the 12-60mm, and not just because of the constant f/2.8. Compared on the same OM-D the Panasonic lens gives a more 3D...

    Digital Darkroom Re: What format do you save your photos in?

    You don't need to save a RAW copy, your RAW file stays as a RAW file, and even if you make adjustments to it you can still revert to the original default settings. If you are going to be post...

    Lens Topics Re: my 4/3rds stuff, should I bail?

    It is easy to make the E-M5 bigger and heavier to be comfortable, but impossible to make an E5 (E7) smaller or lighter.

    Lens Topics Re: my 4/3rds stuff, should I bail?

    Well now we know that the E-M5 sensor is made by Sony, and not a cast off from Panasonic like the E5, then there is every hope that an E7 could be the greatest Olympus ever. But the newer lenses now...

    See if you can tighten the two little screws holding the contact plate onto the eyecup part. The plate needs to be slightly distorted to make a firmer grip on the body. If the screws are already...

    It would have to be the Panasonic 25mm DG Summilux as the choice.

    Much better imho. In the previous one the colour cast has gone and the tone is clear and sharp, much more eye catching.

    Chit Chat Re: Off topic- Composition for a contest entry.

    Much punchier but still a little dull. Don't be worried about using Photoshop, the version I did and the values used would look completely normal to a judge. What I guess they don't want is montage...

    This is how I would do it. Get rid of the colour cast, add some vignetting to bring the eye to the centre, add more contrast, intensify the colour contrast. The light going off the top of...

    It is true that you are unlikely to damage the lens in normal use, especially if you use a lens cap. But I don't like lens caps and have a filter (usually B&W MRC) on all my lenses to act as...

    Have you allowed the lens to over rotate when you mounted it by keeping the release button pressed in? Let the lens click into position.
