Could you upload to the web for us to see? (or a screenshot / framegrab of the affected images)
Do any of the individual frames / images show these faint curtains?

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.

Quote: 40 Megapixel Multi-Shot Feature.

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.

Panasonic Lumix GX7
The GX7 shutter is louder than the OM-D E-M5, and the GM5 is quieter than the E-M5.

Lumix DMC-LX100 and MFT
The short answer is yes, they have the lens elements as close to the sensor as possible, along with the shutter in the lens. Micro Four Thirds cameras have the shutter in front of the sensor, which means you can't put the lens as close to the sensor as they have with the LX100.

I expect the next installment on here will go into some detail on the lens development:

Quote: It may be there already and I've not found it, but the ability to search by camera model and/or lens would be useful for people thinking of buying / hiring etc. (I'm sure it's been mentioned before...)

Hi, great idea Smile

You can do this in the various micro-sites, for example if you go to Nikon Nation ( http://www.ephotozine.com/iamnikon ), you can select the camera from the drop down list, under "Nikon Featured Photos"

Another way you can do this is by going to the review of the camera, as there is a "Photographs taken using the Nikon D810" section under "Explore more" at the bottom of reviews and articles about specific cameras, as you can see at the bottom of this: http://www.ephotozine.com/article/nikon-d810-dslr-sample-photos-25856

Sony Alpha A7S
The Sony Alpha A7S has a 12 megapixel full-frame sensor, and some extremely impressive low-light / noise performance, as you can see in our review:

http://www.ephotozine.com/article/sony-alpha-a7s--ilce-7s--review-25855

With better out of camera JPEG noise performance than the 16mp FF Nikon Df, and 20mp FF Canon EOS 6D.

What do you think?
Would you go "back" to a 12 megapixel camera if it meant excellent noise performance?

People have used UV photography for portraits, to show skin damage caused by the sun:

So the uses could be medical, or could be photographic, as you can get some impressive looking portraits:
