    Other Techniques Re: Indoor shots with flash fails miserably

    Dug out my E-30 to refresh my memory. The SCP has two flash menu items:

    Other Techniques Re: Indoor shots with flash fails miserably

    Could be many causes. I assume this is the pop-up flash and not a hotshoe flash? You can tell it fired and is synching correctly with the shutter, from the shadow and jacket reflection.

    I'd first...

    I'd think either is possible--sample variation or perhaps they used improved coating or assembly processes with the newer edition. The Lens Rental guy, Roger Cicala, has documented running changes to...

    Lens Topics Re: Original 14-54 vs II

    From specs I can find they're the same optical design with the same minimum focus distance and magnification (22cm/0.26x). The rework was primarily to function better in live view.

    Lens Topics Re: Original 14-54 vs II

    The newer 14-54 is slightly reworked and still an HG-class lens. Main difference is added CDAF capability and the might have curved the aperture blades. Otherwise it's the same as the original.

  12. Camera Topics Re: Considering change to Olympus, Equipment Suggestions?

    Hello Erikka,

    If you are accustomed to using a tripod, the E-M5-2 has a high-res mode that would be ideal for landscapes and architecture. (The high-res mode is not well-suited to hand-holding,...

    Lens Topics Re: Weatherproof lens for E-1

    Any HG and SHG lens is weatherproof, I recommend the 300/2.8 for the ambitious starting lens, or maybe the 50/2.0 macro.

    Pretty early in the E-M5ii's run to draw any definitive conclusions, although it's looking like a very good camera. If you wish to bring a 4/3 lens collection across formats then the E-M1 is still...

    Camera Topics Re: 620 or E3

    That's great, because the E-30 is better than either used camera you were considering. (Hmmm, maybe I should have Oly overhaul mine while they're still doing them.)

    Good luck!

    E-30 is a performance and user-control jump from the 510 across the board and yet will feel familiar. It's generations behind the current crop of 4/3 cameras but will give an instant boost in...

    Hi Lars,

    I'll toss in a strong vote for 4) Purchase an E-M1 and the MMF3. The gulf between it and the E-M5 WRT 4/3 lens focus speed and accuracy is wide and the E-M5ii does nothing to address the...

    A used E-30 will improve your sports shooting a great deal with your current 50-200. I made that change and was really pleased--the AF performance is much better and the OVF and 1/8000...
