Do you have any questions for Hoya, Cokin or Kenko on filters?
Good questions Smile I think colour cast can vary from filter to filter, for example we tested the Hoya PROND filter and compared them to a Tiffen, and the difference is very noticeable:

Do you want to know more about Lytro?
I think mobile phone companies have done similar things, such as Nokia/Microsoft refocus which lets you have a couple of areas refocus-able. Others have done this as well.

An explanation of "Megarays" would also be good.

What do you look for in a bag?
If you're looking for a camera bag, what are you looking for? What do you think is the best thing about your current bag, what is the worst thing, and do you use a dedicated camera bag?

We will be meeting with Lytro and wondered if you had any questions for them, or wanted to know more on the Lytro cameras and technology.

Thanks

Upgrade to Windows 10

Quote: My computer bloke said that the upgrade is only free for a year!
I don't know where he got this from, buried in the small print somewhere I expect.
I would check this out if I were you.
You don't know what would happen if you decide not to pay.

Dave

from forbes:

"Customers running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 will get a free upgrade to Windows 10 if the upgrade is performed within one year of release.

Microsoft stresses this does not mean Windows 10 is ‘free for one year’ it means those who upgrade to Windows 10 within one year will have it free for life."

Canon EOS M3 Compact
Hi, no they are not compatible as the M3 uses the EOS-M lens mount. You would need an adapter to use EOS (EF/EF-S) lenses on the EOS M3.

Microphone or Audio Recorder?
Hi,

I sometimes video musicians I know, when they are performing (singers, guitar players, small bands, etc), so for anyone who does this, would an external microphone be better or an external audio recorder (such as an Olympus digital audio recorder)?

Thanks

The code is emailed to the email address you used when you downloaded the software.

It's also displayed on the second page after you've clicked "Get It Now"

You then use the code to activate the software after you've installed it.

Hope this helps.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Discussion
I've added a number of videos on the E-M5 Mark II starting with a quick guide to Live Comp mode:






This is available on the E-M1, E-M10 and E-M5 MKII, but with the E-M5 MK II you can turn the screen towards you so you can see what you're doing while doing it. Very cool! Smile

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Discussion

Quote: The poor battery life [particularly in comparison to the GH3] is my biggest bugbear with the EM1. For a workhorse body it is a serious limitation, even with a grip and double the life. This workaround seems sensible, but I'd have preferred a deeper standard grip and larger cell unit.

I've asked this elsewhere, but given the IBIS [and reportedly] processing engines are shared between the EM5II and EM1, is it possible high res image merge could be made available to the 'top end' [is it any more?] EM1 via firmware?

I do also like the flip-out LCD and am happy to see Olympus going down that line. Don't want to buy another camera though...

The E-M5 Mark II uses new Voice Coil Motors, and I was told that it's this development of the 5-axis IS system that enables the 40 megapixel multi shot feature. As the E-M1 (and other Olympus cameras) do not have the same system as the new E-M5 M2, I doubt it will be possible to add the feature to the E-M1.

Is the camera taking several RAW files and then merging them into just a single RAW file, in camera ?

The camera takes several raw files, and merges them into a single RAW / JPEG image in camera. Raw software will need updating to understand the raw file. Here's a video from Olympus that explains it briefly.
