  1. I've used the E-M5 for about two years but after the initial setup I don't visit the menu much. Guess I switched image review off once on that one too. The Olympus menu system isn't their best feature.
  2. Solved it! I suspected that "image review" was in effect, but had a hard time believing it would have been set to 0.5s from the factory. And try to search for "Olympus image review" on the web... Anyway, that's what it was. Deep down in the depths of Olympus menu system there was a setting for "Rec. view" and alas, it was set to 0.5s. I have no idea to what use such a short image review would be, but setting it to "Off" took care of the problem.
  3. I just bought an Olympus OM-D E-M1 and experience that the image in the viewfinder freezes for about a half second while the camera writes to the card after a shot. I also have an E-M5 but there everything is smooth. I have tried the same card in both cameras and have formatted them in both to no avail. I also have the latest firmware (3.0) installed. It is very annoying... Is this expected behaviour? Is there any setting I may have overlooked?
  4. I occasionally shoot film for several reasons. It serves as a reminder that all the bells and whistles of todays cameras are largely unnecessary for taking good photos. I love the simplicity of older mechanical cameras. There is also a degree of excitement (and sometimes frustration!) with the restrictions imposed with being forced to work with one ISO instead of blasting away with auto ISO up in the thousands. It fuels my creativity. It also is an affordable way to shoot with a rangefinder camera. Currently I have film in a Pentax Spotmatic F, where the light meter doesn't work for some reason, and a Minolta SR-7. Even so, digital captures probably outnumber film a hundred to one though.
  5. Very sad. I remember her as a positive, kind, and helpful individual. Also a great photographer of course.

    A mistake

    I have no recollection of taking this image. Probably I just tripped the trigger when fetching the camera as it was the first image captured during a photo course led by Bjørn (nfoto). Nevertheless, I like it. It may even be my favourite from the trip.

    As far as I can tell, mine is a pre-AI version that has been AI-converted. It has the HS-8 snap on hood.

    Yes, the 105/2.5 has a great reputation and will probably replace my Micro-Nikkor 105/4 for everyday use. Thanks, Mike. The bananas are actually made of plastic and about one foot long.

    Ice cave

    Very cool! I guess one could spend hours and hours there and keep finding new subjects to shoot.

    The introduction year for the Df is wrong.

    Trying out my recently bought Nikkor 24/2.8 and 105/2.5. I'm grateful for Nikon to have kept the lens compatibility for so long and it's amazing what cool glass you can have for a bargain these days. I think I'm going to enjoy these. Bow Bananas

    Yes, it's very nice and changes as I walk by. I struggle to make a decent picture of it though. Straight on, the patterns don't stand out as much.

    No, it's not the lack of AA filter in the D810 that causes this.
  14. Nice set. Fresh snow always makes for interesting photo opportunities.
