    Camera Topics Re: Batteries for EM-1?

    Haven't done a careful comparison, but the Wasabi batteries I bought for my EM1 seem to last as long as the Olympus battery does.

  4. Lens Topics Re: interesting compact and inexpensive wide angle prime: 10.5mm prime for $220

    What a good suggestion, Godfrey!

    I've been trying to figure out what m4/3 lens to get for my EM-1 to complement my 4/3 glass, without spending a lot of money on top of my recent outlay for the...

    Camera Topics Re: E-M1, Ugly or Not?

    Ditto. For objects that have intrinsic utility, I would always prioritize function over form. Having said that, I don't find the form of the E-M1 unappealing.

    Thanks, Godfrey. Well, that's a nice feature, over and above ergonomics and the extra battery.
  7. Camera Topics Those function buttons on the HLD7 grip for the EM1...

    ...can they be assigned functions separately from the programmable buttons on the body of the camera, or do they just duplicate the assignments you have made to body buttons?

    In other words, do...

    Camera Topics Re: Just pre-ordered the E-M1

    The user's manual says nothing about FL50 or FL36, but today at the camera-shop demo, the Olympus rep assured me that both are supported by the EM1.

    Oh, I should add that the rep demoed the wifi setup with a tablet. I thought it was really impressive and seemed to work flawlessly. Pretty good update rate, too; a guy walking toward the camera in...

    Camera Topics Re: Just pre-ordered the E-M1

    Were you at Keeble & Shuchat this morning? If so, our paths almost crossed.

    What I saw also confirmed my pre-order decision. Focusing on 4/3 ZD 50-200mm and 50mm macro lenses was plenty fast...

    Camera Topics Re: Anyone know how pre-orders work?

    I had to put $300 down to get on the list, but I can have the camera for two weeks to evaluate. If I don't like it, I can return it (as long as I keep it in pristine condition) and get all of my...

    Chit Chat Re: The solution is simple

    Is the statement really a year old, not a week old? If the former, I'm not sure what predictive value it has.
  15. Accessories Re: Celltech/Travor RF550D Macro LED Ring Flash

    So after I slept on it I took another high-speed video, this one with an LCD stopwatch and the flash in the frame. That way I can time the flash directly from the images rather than relying on...
  16. Accessories Re: Celltech/Travor RF550D Macro LED Ring Flash

    Of course you always catch errors after you do the post (and often when you're just climbing into bed). The manual claims a flash duration of 1/100 second, but I think I got seduced by that and made...

  18. Accessories Celltech/Travor RF550D Macro LED Ring Flash

    I think I'll find it useful for macros under limited conditions, where the brief duration of a strobe flash isn't required to stop motion. As you'll see, I'm puzzled by some aspects of its behavior....

    Good confirmation, Don. I hope Santa is reading this thread (hint, hint!).

    @Ann Mine has arrived; now it's just an issue of making some time to give it a thorough testing.
  21. Flash / Strobe Topics Re: Anybody have experience with the Travor RF-550D LED ringlight?

    Mine just arrived; haven't tried it yet, as I'm busy photographing a great bloom (if that's the right word) of slime mold in my front yard.

    @RAH: My 67mm adapter seems to be the right size.

  22. Camera Topics Re: Advice on quiet shooting at formal events

    Thanks for the good advice, everybody. It sounds like my best bet will be to pick up something with an electronic shutter; I hadn't known that some of the Panasonic/Lumix m4/3 cameras had them. ...

  25. Lens Topics Re: Adapter for Canon lens to Olympus 4/3rds camera

    But you won't be able to focus to infinity with an FD lens on a four-thirds camera, because the FD lens needs to be too close to the sensor to permit an adapter and still be the proper distance. So...
