For the first time I can safely say the autofocus is fast enough Smile

Roger, whichever flash you get, the 36 or 36R, be careful with the little wheel for tightening the unit to the shoe, I've broken 2 of them now, my present one, and one I had for the E510 years ago. It happened while walking around with the flash on camera in both cases.

Brian, what about the 600R, is it a dinky plastic fitting?

I think that if you have a good panning technique, you can pretty well handle any outdoor sports with available kit, and all but the worst lighting inside. What do you think?

A lot is simply down to technique, too much technology could slow you down.

Its a locking lever much like that on the latest canon flashes. (I used to hate the wheel that was on the earlier ones and on my Sigma 500 I was always worried I would overtighten it)

The 600R needs to be pushed in until it clicks, else it won't work properly

Has anybody had a play with the "Art Filters" modes on the E-M5? I was wandering about in some fine Scotch Mist (i.e. classic west of Scotland fine rain) this morning, and decided to try a couple of them out. This was taken using "Dramatic Tone":

Seems to live up to its name. Quite good as a bit of harmless fun, I think. Smile (No post-processing other than a simple resize to post in the forum.) I didn't take the identical shot without the "filter", but the following is a part of the same subject from almost the same vantage point, and without any in-camera (or post-process) modifications, for comparison:

I think you can shoot RAW + JPEG, using art filters - so you have an unadulterated version, if you want that, as well as the arty one. Smile

Yes, I think you're right CB. I was in RAW-only mode though, so only got the JPEG.

Oh and in case you were wondering...that's not a photo of the place I was staying! Wink

I think you can apply any art filter in-camera to any RAW , or is it jpeg image, after you've taken it.

I shoot in RAW and you can apply the art filters to the image and process either as a tiff or a jpg.

Denny, that flower you have is a lantana - I have it in my garden Smile
