    A few with the em1ii last night down at the marina here in L’ampolla. Quite pleased with the result as hand held, without flash and not able to process until I get back home. 52732804-2A9E-48FA-B453-7B993BDC0129.jpeg 12A9C035-B769-42DD-AF51-2164B9B1092F.jpeg 5BDE7633-FA61-471D-AEAD-51632E193067.jpeg CF52AEFB-E04C-4CB6-8AA6-DD1C32A369D4.jpeg

    I ended up purchasing the Em1ii and the 300mm at The Photography Show - oops! I enjoy sports and wildlife photography, so don't know if I will eventually be able to ditch my Canon gear. The weight and size is very welcome!

    Anyway, I'm impressed with the set up so far. It looks a bit sharper in LR than here. The battery seems to run down very quickly!
    This was taken through double glazing and at ISO 1000 and they are sprightly little creatures.

    I paid for the replacement for this a week ago (last Tues night) still no new lens.
    Great service or what?

    No communication from them at all the product regsitration for this connects to nothing.

    I did look up the repair website (seperate company)and they say this

    Yup - em-5ii does as well. The long shutter NR works a treat if you're patient. I haven't found a decent way to fix it in post without LSNR unfortunately :-(.

    Just set long exposure noise reduction to auto and job done, the file has dark frame subtraction applied. Sure it means all your shots take twice as long, but it tends to work well imo.

    The complication of Olympus menus is blown out of all proportion imo and they're really no different to any other system in terms of complexity. If you don't know where a setting is it can be just as hard to find in any menu system as another ;) Olympus have a secret weapon though, they have the super control panel and countless customisable buttons. Once you have these set to your preference you really don't need the menus other than formatting cards.

    That moon pic is impressive. Single shot or stacked?

    It's stacked Toby, 40 exposures aligned and merged in AutosSakkert3, wavelets applied to taste with Registax.

    It's 40 identical exposures, it minimises artefacts and atmospheric disturbances to give you a better baseline to work with in comparison to a single exposure.

    First issue has just registered with my Em1ii. The top SD card slot wont retain the card which just keeps springing back out.
    Anyone else had this issue?

    There is a lot of grumpiness about the Oly menus. This seems unreasonable to me! Just because we are not familiar with them (Canon for many many years) doesn’t mean the camera is a disaster. I use both and have to remind myself how to do th8ngs if I have left it a while or been using my Canons. I love my Oly system. Beware! A friend of mine decided to trade in his Canon for a Sony set up to go lighter. He told me after his trip that he had 9.5kg in his rucksack and a few nerves about internal flights. It seems he has bought his way back to having to carry weight! He wouldn’t go back though.

    As has been said, they are complicated, only because the camera offers so many options. Getting familiar with any system takes a little time. I am still finding bells and whistles after using the Mk2 for a year. But well worth it IMHO...........:)

    Not had that problem Graham. As Mark says have you tried another card (I'm sure you have).
    If it's still an issue I would contact your dealer.

    After some advice please. I’ve started a thread for this too, but thought I would also ask here.

    Despite using a weather resistant camera and lens (G9 + Oly 40-150mm f2.8) with a rain cover, I ended up with some condensation within the EVF of my camera after an hour or so of shooting yesterday in moderate rain. Back at my car, this cleared just sitting on the front seat (no heater on) while I got out of my waterproofs etc.

    Since getting home, the camera has been in a (camera) bag with a couple of those silica desiccant pouches (battery + cards still in it) in a warm room. There’s absolutely no sign of any condensation remaining.

    Anything else I should be doing? How long do I leave it before using again in anger? Should I be worried?

    Cheers,

    Simon.

    Normally I leave wet stuff on a towel on a radiator for a day or so with the battery out, just to make sure.

    If its ok when you switch it on then I'd forget about it and carry on.

    I don't have an EM10, but I have used Expert Shield on several cameras and have been impressed. They never peel off and the touch screen still works. You've reminded me I need to get one for my Em1ii!

    Here's a link to them http://www.expertshielduk.com

    I came across them at The Photography Show a few years ago and have since bought another two for other cameras. They also have the most hilarious instructions :)

    I think you have done all you can there Simon, I would just keep an eye on it, you'll probably find it's fine next time you use it in similar conditions.

    When my gear has been out in the rain I tend to mop up as much water as I can then ask my better half if she can hold the camera and lens in the car on the way back.
    I then let it dry out naturally, fingers crossed I've had no problems in many years taking this approach.

    Thanks guys. I switched it on yesterday, and all seems fine. I’m away for a week, so I’ll leave it in the camera bag with a couple of silica pouches just to make sure.

    Cheers,

    That doesn't sound great, but sounds like you've done everything that you could. The only other thing I would suggest is that at the first sign of moisture inside your camera (or any electrical item for that matter) is to turn it off straight way as it could prevent anything from 'shorting'.

    I've used these a few times, they're far more robust than the film type (if you're careful you can even remove them and reuse on another body) and much easier to apply.

    So, if you scratch one of these glass covers, how do you remove it without damaging the screen itself?

    They lift off quite easily after being attached (it's just a case of getting a fingernail under and lifting a corner and breaking the suction effect that holds it to the screen), I've just recently moved one between cameras without any problem.

    I think it's OK to do that. As anything m43 is potentially useful to Olympus users. In fact many use both makers items. And the m43 community is not so divisive like the Canon versus Nikon haters. Now we don't want that here do we?
