    Hi Good Folks,
    Anyone in here own an Olympus E-M1x camera, if so can you tell me the best settings and how to do for Every Day Photography. Or Even Birding if you know. I bought one last week to go with my Em1 Mk2.

    When Transferring Always check the folders to see if images are in there before Deleting or Formatting card in camera. You can get free programs to get those images back. Just don't Format the card. Google it.

    JMHO--Never buy an All In One as you can either Not Upgrade it, or it is hard to upgrade it. Best to buy a Tower system as you can now get small towers & flat towers. Very easy to upgrade when needed. Bear in mind, if you can not afford to pay outright of 1,600 or more you can always buy on HP with some places like Amazon, OCUK (if you a member) Ebuyer and many many more. Hope you got it sorted by now. I'm Late to the party Smile

    In the last few months I made my Cooker redundant and my Chip Fryer redundant by buying a 5.5lt Cosori Air Fryer, a Dual Ninja Air Fryer & a Pressure cooker. Those are my Triple Xmas Presents for myself. No more FAT to cook your food in, just a light spray of Veg oil. It takes a while to get used to but I'll not go back to using my Stove Air Fan Cooker. Saves on the Electric bill as well.

    I have used CCleaner for years now and I do NOT get pop ups. Strange that some do and some do not.
    I never use anything else. Does the Job well.

  • Commented on 'What is a good upgrade for my Olympus Pen E-PL7? I am looking for a more compact M43 Camera.'

    I Own Two Olympus EM1 Mk2 cameras and find they are Lightweight and Easy to carry around. All lenses are light in weight (except 100-400) There are lots on second hand if you do not want to buy New. If you can afford the EM1 Mk3 buy it. Leave the New OMD1 alone at moment as it has some faults. Plus battery is Expensive.
    Good Luck.

    Hi SteveAitch--Happy New Year---I was actually thinking of doing a Photobook. I'm going to look for the Best images in each year. Mind you, if I stick to that no one will see me for two years mun. lol. Will try my best to do that. Cheers m8.

  • Commented on 'NAS Recommendations for Back up'

    I play Safe---I got two 3tb HDD in my NAS. Both Single and both have same things on it. I lost lots before when my Raid went down. I'll never trust Raid again. I also got my photos backed up to other drives in my Yottamaster 4 bay.
    Mind You, I sometimes Wonder why I bother to keep my backups of my photos from 2002 up to 2017 as I never seam to go back to them to look or use them. Perhaps I should Delete them and Reuse my HDD. I'm 74 and on my own. My Brother n Family will just Delete the lot when I'm gone. What Do You Say ?

    Colin Smale--You are not the only one to say this. I own an Olympus EM1 Mk2 (2 of them) + a lot of lenses. Sold all my Canon Full Frame + lenses to go Olympus. I Love mine despite the too many settings it has. I sometimes Wonder if Canon/Nikon pays the Magazines to mention them. When it comes to picture taking it is down to the photographer and many of them using Olympus are better than lots using Canikon.I would love to know if any Oly users send their images to the Magazines. ? Lets Hope OM Systems take us into a new era.

  • Commented on 'Olympus 100 - 400mm MFT lens'

    Is a Good Lens but Heavyish to carry around all day. I sold All my Canon gear to go lightweight so bought Om1 Mk2. now I bought the 100-400mm and find it heavy again especially when I carry all my lenses and two cameras. I Like the lens but still can NOT get a decent bird in flight. I do NOT want to use Pro Capture and take Umpteen images. I only ever took 3 images with my Canon 5D3 or 7D n 400 f5.6 lens and got at least two in the frame, sharp. Why they put in all those Settings to make it complicated beats me.

    Is a Good lens when you get used to using it.

    They were Transferring over to the New Company and did a TEST that backfired. The test went out to Everyone on their list in ERROR!..

  • Commented on 'Nikon or Canon?'

    I sold All my Canon gear 6000 worth in start of 2019. 5D3 and Lenses
    I then bought an Olympus OM1 Mk2 and a few lenses.
    I Not looked back.
    Nice and Light to carry around and it takes Great Pictures.

    But I do not think I'm going to persuade you to buy one.
    Too many Canon & Nikon owners in here. LOL
    Decisions, Decisions.. Happy New Year

    Vuescan, is neither 'arcane, obtuse and old fashioned' as you say. I Use VUESCAN quite a lot and find it Very Very Good.
    Try it before you Knock it for six. Scans are Excellent with it and you can Manipulate the settings to your hearts content..
