Freelensing with the Olympus Kit lens...
Found this:
http://www.43rumors.com/thats-cool-shoot-new-kind-of-pictures-with-the-olympus-1...

Using the MK1 14-42mm Olympus collapsible kit lens, the results look good, and the video explains why the collapsible kit lens is so useful for tilt shift... not sure if the MK2 kit lens will do it too but I can't see why not? Although the MK1 does have the advantage of the front focusing element on the lens.

good reasons?
Pentax and Sony DSLRs feature in camera shake-reduction - so you get this feature with every lens attached. For Nikon and Canon image stabilisation is lens based so you can either get a lens with IS/VR or not.

Pentax are also Weather Resistant (WR) from the Pentax K-50 upwards (not the K-500), and a number of the kit lenses are also WR.

Will there be an X-S2
Hi Kodachrome,

I think the S1 is the nearest to being a premium bridge camera replacement:
http://www.ephotozine.com/article/fujifilm-launch-world-s-first-weather-sealed-5...

Since the X-S1 has regularly been on special offer on Amazon with a much reduced price, I suspect that the camera was slightly overpriced to sell in the numbers Fuji were hoping for,

Cheers,

Josh

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Discussion
I know Brian (and others) have switched to the E-M5 from using full frame and other DSLRs when the original OM-D E-M5 came out, but has anyone who has bought the new OM-D E-M1 decided to switch to it from a DSLR (full-frame or other)?

Thanks

There are probably/possibly other programs installed at the same time, if you go to control panel, uninstall/programs, you can sort the programs by install date, and remove other unwanted programs that may have been installed at the same time.

Most Innovative Camera Of 2013?
Hi Chris, you're talking about the Autographer:
http://www.ephotozine.com/article/autographer-wearable-camera-to-launch-22547

The Samsung Galaxy NX is certainly quite innovative, but also done with the Galaxy camera, and the Nikon Coolpix S800c before that. I'm also not entirely sure it brings a huge photographic advantage or particularly changes the way you take photos? But definitely innovative being the world's first android based ILC camera.

Amazon Black Friday Deals
Amazon are running some nice "Black Friday" deals this week, including a number of digital cameras, camera bags, tripods and other stuff on special offer. If you go to the Amazon homepage and click the Black Friday link on the top right you'll find them or in the Camera and Photo section they are listed under "Lightning deals".

Currently they have:
Canon Powershot A3500 - £59 - normally £89

Upcoming:
Canon Powershot SX280 (again)
Sony Cyber-shot WX60
Canon IXUS 132

Expired:
Canon Powershot SX280 for £160! (normally £220)
Nikon Coolpix S6400 - £99 - Normally around £145 elsewhere.
Sony NEX-3N - £250 - normally £290

They've also got the Nikon Coolpix S6400 and Sony NEX-3N coming up later today. The NEX-3N is currently £289 so I imagine when the price drops it will be the cheapest mirrorless camera of the year!

Most Innovative Camera Of 2013?
I almost included the 70D in the initial list, and it's certainly worth considering.

The EM1 is an excellent camera, without doubt, but phase-detection AF has been built into cameras by a number of others, including the Nikon 1, Samsung NX series, Sony NEX series. In the EM1 it addresses slow focus for FourThirds lenses, but as contrast detection was already very fast on M43 cameras, it didn't seem like a huge benefit to the majority of people (unless you plan to use 4/3 lenses).

Minolta MC ROKKOR-PF 58mm f/1.4 on E-M5


Well, after owning this lens for at least a year, I finally used it to take some photos, with the E-M5, first shot f/1.4 or f/2, ISO1600, 1/125s, sharpened slightly in Lightroom, and colour temperature made warmer.



This one was taken at f/13, ISO200, 1/160s, colour corrected in Photoshop.

Olympus 15mm Body Cap Cookie Lens Mod


The Olympus 15mm Body Cap Lens is a fixed f/8 lens, and this gives reasonable photos in good light, as can be seen in our review:
http://www.ephotozine.com/article/olympus-15mm-f-8-0-body-cap-lens-review-21536

However, the aperture disc can be removed (if you are careful and don't mind voiding your warranty), and will give a much brighter, almost f/2, lens, although images are much softer (toy-like) afterwards. There are a number of small screws on the back of the lens, and inside there are a number of very small washers, making it quite a fiddly process. (And not recommended unless you are good at taking apart and re-assembling small things). Here are some pictures of the lens afterwards. These were originally posted in the huge E-M5 thread, but I thought it would be good to post here so it's easier to find the information!

Hi Weddingblues, I've used a 300mm f/5.6 lens, some examples can be found here:
http://www.ephotozine.com/groups/evil-csc-m4-3-users-and-meets-764/photos/tamron...

As others have mentioned, purple fringing may be noticeable when shooting wide open, but stopped down a bit should improve sharpness as well as image quality.

Need specific info on Panasonic Lumix DMC ZS-15 and ZS-19 cameras
Hi,

I don't know where you've got the information that you can only use 20x digital zoom in program mode? The ZS19 has a 20x optical zoom lens, and you can use the optical zoom in any mode.

The ZS19 is the same as the ZS20, but without GPS. The ZS20 is called the TZ30 in the UK (and Europe), and you can find our review here:
http://www.ephotozine.com/article/panasonic-lumix-dmc-tz30-dmc-zs20-gps-pocket-z...
