    Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    When I returned to m43rds after a 5 year sojourn with Fuji, I knew that at some point I would crack and acquire a Pana Leica Marco Elmarit 45mm f2.8, for what is the third time in my life. What a super, super lens. Apart from what seem to me are authentic Leica colours and contrast (based on my...

    Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Greylag Geese. Although not my favourite type of bird I am nevertheless once again very pleased with the AF and rendering by the OM-1 and ED300f4. I passed this through DxOPureRAW3 (At present I am boycotting v4 as I paid for my upgrade to v3 just three days shy of the free upgrade period and...

    Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Yes, they are eye-catching. Another thing which struck me was the size of the cockpit. It is very roomy. This was the world's first ever commercial jet powered airliner. Something that Frank Whittle, the inventor of the jet engine, dreamed would be possible even when he was initially developing...

    Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    I decided to commit further to the Olympus system and I purchased the lowest cost second hand one from MBP here in the UK and am quite delighted with what I received. Looks not far from new, glass is clean with no marks and it focusses fine. The only thing which is not fine is the weather in the...

    Ricoh GR III

    Nice photo. The Ricoh GRIII is a 'small' APS-C camera but not a 'small sensor' camera. There is a thread which celebrates its virtues in the 'Other Cameras section.

    Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    I keep expecting the 'buyers remorse' to kick in after selling off my Fuji-based birding kit to go back to m43rds and specifically Olympus but after a month of shooting I remain absolutely delighted. Yes, the AF could be slightly improved but in general subject detection, stickiness once...

    Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Got me a TC1.4x (cheap grey import) to add to my 100-400. With some post processing jiggery-pokery it is possible to get good results. Olympus OM-1, 100-400, iso10000, 560mm, f11, 1/4000

    That is really convincingly 'film-like' and a beautiful capture.

    Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Thanks, I will definitely check them out. Or now I come to think of it, I may just experiment with my own presets. Either way, thanks for the info.

    Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    I thought it was only me! In fact it is even worse if like me you are mainly using a zoom or large telephoto. On the X-H2S in the end I mapped one of the button near the shutter so I could use my index finger to review images. Otherwise, I would have had to move my hand across my face to get to...

    Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    I'm still getting to grips with OM-1 and 100-400 lens which I have switched to for wildlife, primarily birding. The weather in the UK has not been conducive to bird photography and it didn't help that although I had the opportunity to photograph buzzards and kites a few days ago, my lack of...

    Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Still testing out my recently acquired OM-1+100-400. Back garden birds as the weather has not been conducive to an adventure to wilder areas in my region. I think the bird eye-detect AF works just fine.
