    No pp done yet and my Adobe subscription has expired. Can you do in camera pp with RAW like you can on a Fuji ? Literally only opened the box earlier today, did a very quick set up and went out shooting. I did notice a "vibrant" setting but wanted to try everything in default mode to start with before tweaking.

    I think you can do raw edit in camera but I’m not 100%. I’ve tweaked my jpeg settings in camera as they need a contrast and saturation boost to suit my tastes.

    Tbh I shoot RAW anyway but do have a preset set up in lightroom that I use on import. I just messed about the jpeg settings out of curiosity, wondering if I could get close to RAW.

    Or use Raw Therapee. Which is excellent. And is free and open source. Or one of the others.

    Much as I hate paying up, that would drive me bonkers, even though I rarely do much beyond what you can achieve in there. Just knowing ... there's more! :crying:

    "camera natural" is my preferred profile for JPG and I use it on import into Lightroom as a starting point.

    Olympus Viewer 3 is quite slow and clunky but gives you full editing on your ORF files and it's free.

    If you're going to go JPEG then I'd check that Superfine is enabled.
    Robin Wong's guide might be a bit long in the tooth now for the latest OM-D but worth a quick look.

    Have been debating for a while whether to get a longer lens for wildlife (75mm is my current max focal length). It would mostly be used in the garden, so weight is probably not as much of an issue, but I would like something I could take on holiday. I still have my Canon 70-200 f4 which I've debated getting a metabones adapter for, there's the Panasonic 100-300 or 100-400. I decided I'd give the 40-150 (kit) lens a try - I'm away at the moment for work, and it's $89 new here in the US (plus a ibt of sales tax).

    I don't have a laptop I can use to edit anything, so here are some transferred from camera to phone and up. Anyway here goes.

    This lens is so light I'm surprised it doesn't float in the air!

    I have the same lens from my E-PL5 kit. It doesn't have the reach of the two Panasonic lenses you are looking at but it's very capable for what it is. I'm not much of a nature photographer so the reach is adequate for my needs.

    The lightweight is a real advantage as it means it goes in the bag along with the other primes and shorter zoom, a heavier lens would probably be left at home unless I had a specific reason for it - nature or motorsport.
    It looks a bit silly fully extended on the E-M10 though :)

    This is a recent one from the 40-150

    Really nice Alby!

    So I had my 2nd go with the Oly 40-150 f4-5.6, on my way back from work today. There were quite a few gulls flying around for food beign dropped and just generally circling, so I thought I'd have a go at getting some flying, Despite many many misses, I was quite pleased. Straight OOC til I get home and have a laptop to edit on. I have for the birds in flight, the best combination was Single AF, I used the large multiple squares for AF points (probably my technique but single squares (big or small) were not working for me) and I used burst mode. These were all pretty close and relatively easy to plot their direction \ flight path compared to most birds.

    Couple more. I know none of these will win Wildlife photographer of the year, but for a lens that weighs literally nothing, costs comparatively nothing and has this range I'm quite impressed. No doubt it will be no contest against the pro-lenses \ 300f4 etc, especially paired with an EM1II, however I'll get getting those in about 5 years (if ever) hopefully once we are on EM1mkV!

    Great shots. And yeah, it's a fine lens in good light when you can get that little bit closer. I sold mine though, and got a Pany 100-300, more for the extra reach than quality.

    Work - I come over 3 times a year roughly, generally stay in Newport\Jersey City across the Hudson from NY. Views are really nice and I prefer it to staying in NY (and it's cheaper!), but still easy to get into Manhattan if I need to. Was over in Jan and I think I nearly lost my hands to the cold - it's still cold here but much nicer!

    Cool, I went in December and loved it. I'd love to be able to go more often and dedicate time to 'proper' photography rather than 'holiday snaps'.

    I was there in Dec 2012, 5 days of thick fog :( Still a great early Christmas vibe and I enjoyed it. I wish I'd spent more time taking pics too, was mostly dragged through stores for shopping.

    So I discovered something today after ruining a load of shots whilst on holiday that I can’t go back and reshoot, Olympus cameras have IBIS turned off by default for continuous shooting even if you have it turned on for normal shooting.. What the fudge :eek: Sometimes manufacturers baffle me.

    Anyway, I thought I’d share it in case anyone else didn’t know this. It can be activated in the menu.

    I think he has the Em1

    When I got the em5 at first, the IBIS effect was switched off, "Halway rls with shutter" wasn't exactly clear instruction. This happens to be the option right under the continuous + IBIS. As a complete noob to Olympus I found some of their menu options baffling

    EM1 as Cagey said, guess they got their brains sorted out for later models.

    TBH I can’t remember if IBIS was on by default or not, but either way you wouldn’t have thought to specify each drive mode. What makes it doubly confusing is you can select individual IBIS settings for stills and video, you’d think if they put these options there they’d make it more obvious you have to select it for continuous drive too :facepalm:

    What are panasonic like for repairs. Thier website is a shambles IMO.

    I need a repair to my 8-18 mm lens as my tripod fell over in some terrible weather at Wasdale

    That would be good as their repair sevice DK say this


    I am sorry but there is no route at present to repair this lens



    We can provide an exchange price of approximately £550 + vat + carriage. If you wish to proceed with this please log on line at www.dkavs.co.uk and send the lens in to us.

    We will provide a more accurate estimate and when paid the replacement lens will be ordered and sent to you after arrival here.

    This lens cost me £850 (£950 paid £100 cashback) and will be about £700 to sort.

    I know nothing about lens repairs, but that looks fixable. The board isn't cracked or damaged, looks like the orange ribbon on left just needs reattaching. I sold a sigma 150mm OS.macro lens for about 1/3rd of its value because the OS had become unstable. The guy who bought it fixed it himself, was a dismantle and simple solder job, fair play, he got a right bargain, I would never have attempted it . Point is, there's people about that can DIY repair lenses, just a matter of finding one.

    Project 365 - 077/365: Abstract Bark

    On a scouting walk in the local woods and came across this nice abstract of a fallen trunk. I just like the way that the overcast light, the snow on top and the bark all combine to give it such texture. Monochrome treatment only enhances this I feel.

    I would also check with an independent repairer such as Miles Whitehead or Alan Marlow.

    Miles fixed a Canon EF 50 f/1.4 for me and serviced a few of my film cameras. If the official repairer can't fix it I would always check with him; he is reasonably priced as well.

    Emailed a couple of companies and Luton cameras said the lens body may be damaged and it would need calibrated by DKavs so options are limited as far as I can see

    Hope you don’t mind me suggesting this but could you claim on your home contents insurance as it was accidental damage? I once dropped a lens into a river and claimed on mine successfully as I had damage outside of the home cover and it was a claim under £1000.

    If you’ve got a decent policy which covers personal possessions and all risks you should be ok. Good luck anyway and I hope you get a positive response.

    I've claimed on a home contents insurance for named items. Where I've listed the serial numbers beforehand. I dropped bag containing an expensive lens, and, separately, slipped on wet grass with a camera in my hand. Which hit a rock. The items were replaced with new ones.
