  1. Dallas, glad to see you doing these videos, please keep them coming.
  2. Yes, the Olympus E-M1 mkII will save your camera settings to a .set file which can be saved to your computer using the Olympus updater. I believe you need to use the Olympus updater to install the settings back to the camera, and yes making it work with earlier models would be a nice bonus from Olympus.
  3. and this was shot through a double-paned window
  4. I had this female squirrel "posing" for me yesterday out on our deck. Decided I had better try and see what I could come up with using the E-M1 and 40-150 Pro lens.
  5. Last one, f5.0 1:640 sec, not cropped. I usually use the 60mm f2.8 macro for these shots, but today I decided to try and see what the 40-150 PRO would do. I prefer the 60mm macro lens, but thought this was an interesting exercise. These were all shot with the E-M1 "classic"
  6. These were a bit too close to the ground, and also a bit past their prime, but it is impressive what you can do with the focus stacking, f5.0 at 1:60 sec
  7. I had some nice cloudy bright sky after a light rain fall, so I decided I might attempt to get some flower photos using the in camera, focus stacking ability of the latest Olympus cameras. Red always gives me problems, so I decided I would tackle it first. This are all five-shot, hand-held focus stacks with some work in Lightroom, F5.0 at 1:50 sec
  8. Dallas, nice to see you doing these videos, as I know many struggle with the Olympus menus. I did manage to learn something from your introductory video about turning off the Olympus accessory menus, thank you. If I could offer a suggestion, while your narration is very good and easy to follow, the audio quality could use some improvement. Please keep them coming. Maybe at some point you might want cover using the lever switch and the multiple options available with it. Since I usually shoot action subjects, I use the lever to switch in between S-AF and C-AF.
  9. I really like the kit on the gravel, second vote for best image in the series, it is the eyes that really make it work. If others were worried about the gravel, you could always use a radial filter and reduce the clarity and sharpness to take the edge off the gravel, but I would leave it just as you have it. Love the Olympus sharpness and colors!
  10. I like the scene, the airplane is a Boeing 717, seats about 100 people. I always like a spot where you can shoot airplanes with something other than just blue sky.
  11. Dallas, this is raw footage from my E-M1 mkII in 4K shot with the 300mm f4.0 hand held. You can see my drifting to hold the camera on target, but the IBIS is astounding. This is the file straight from the camera
  12. Many thanks Mike, that was a gorgeous evening and happy to hear I was able to do it justice.
  13. Impressive video, hard to imagine it was from a smartphone. I wonder how that gimbal would work with my Olympus Air? I also owned an E-M5 mkII, sold it when I bought my E-M1 mkII, and yes it took very credible video.
  14. Unless you are going to take long bursts or shoot minutes of cinema 4K video, I have seen no need for the latest SD cards. I am using the Samsung Pro cards, 85mb/sec and have never overrun the buffer on the E-M1 mkII, and I do shoot bursts in RAW to capture birds in flight.
