Re: Burning man

I think it could be nice if you crop off some from the left, as well as part of the sky; maybe a bit of the foreground sand as well. I like the elements a lot--the bicycles strewn around, the giant...

Re: Elephant Options

One note about the color: Elephants often roll in the dirt and take dust baths to protect their skin from sun and insects. The ground here is mostly red clay, so in accurate color, the Elephants are...

Elephant Options

Elephants are one of my favorite subjects at the zoo. I've been experimenting with some artistic processing/renderings lately for a bit of variety. These are two different photos of the same...

Zoo Birds (and Cute Mammals)

A few bird and mammal photos from my recent trip to the North Carolina Zoo. The first two came from the Aviary, an indoor, free-flight exhibit in which visitors walk around amongst the birds.

Small Big Cats

I made another visit to the North Carolina Zoo a couple of weeks ago. The zoo's pair of lions had four cubs on July 30, 2014. They just recently went on exhibit, so how could I resist taking a bunch...

Re: Cloggers

Definitely many things that were not ideal about this! A longer focal length would have been better, but I also didn't want to stand in front of the stage and block peoples' view. The bright sunlight...

Cloggers

Last weekend, I went to "Festifall," a street festival in my town of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I brought my small kit, the E-M5 with Pan-Leica DG 25mm f/1.4 and Samyang 7.5mm fisheye lenses. One...

New Lenses?

The many product announcements from Photokina a couple of weeks ago got me excited about the possibility of buying some new lenses. The Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 and matching teleconverter are...

Re: Automatic Exposure Bracketing

I never understood why Olympus chose to implement auto-bracketing this way, but the camera doesn't take all 3 or 5 exposures with a single press of the shutter release. You need to press the shutter...

Re: Olympus confirms 40-150 f/2.8 and 1.4 converter

Even if the teleconverter can fit another lens (such as via the MMF adapter), it was obviously designed to work with the new 40-150 and 300mm lenses, so it's optimized to work with those specific...

Re: Video Problem with Aftermarket Battery?

I bought it online from bestbatt.com. It doesn't have a brand name on it. The price was very low--two batteries and a charger for just $26 (US). But even for the low price, they are clearly not a...

Video Problem with Aftermarket Battery?

I hardly ever use my camera (E-M5) for recording video, and I know very little about it, but I attempted to last night. I was going to make a video of an Improv comedy performance that I was...

Re: The fashion blogger’s new camera of choice

Hmmm . . . I hadn't really considered buying the silver E-M1. I guess I should have bought the silver version of the Samyang Fisheye in that case. :D I'm always wary about getting too excited about...

Re: The fashion blogger’s new camera of choice

There doesn't seem to me much interest here for the new camera. Promoting it as a fashion accessory for taking selfies is unlikely to spark much desire among photography enthusiasts . . . it does...

Re: Slow autofocus: camera or lenses fault?

Lenses play a big role as well. The speed of the focusing motors can vary. And some lenses, especially the older 4/3 lenses (as compared to the Micro Four Thirds M lenses) use different types of...

I'm not really familiar with the G5, so I can only guess what might be going on . . . it may have something to do with the autofocus settings. In single AF mode, cameras typically won't take a photo...
