Edit: Please disregard this post. Can't seem to delete it. I need to do more work on the subject.

Apart from reading the number off the side of the zoom lens, is there any way of determining the actual focal length as set with the zoom ring ?
Perhaps on an m4/3 body ?
I would like to be able to repeat a shoot (eg a day later) with the zoom lens re-set to exactly the same focal length.
Any ideas, anybody ?
Cheers,

Juvenile Bald Eagle and juvenile Red-tailed Hawk just a few inches apart. Don't know who joined the party, but likely the hawk. Must have been somewhat confusing for both.
Haven't posted for quite a while; life gets in the way of photography, sometimes.

Sole Trade

by Robert Watcher

A week ago I was in a city 4 hours from where I am living in Guatemala. I came across a scene that I hadn't seen specifically as of yet. It was a man sitting on the street outside a home, resoling and repairing shoes of the person inside. all his tools, glues and pieces of leather were scattered around him.

Unfortunately I was not in a position to take his photo at that time - even though I desperately wanted to. I wasn't sure I would come across that opportunity again.

Well I did. This morning, while walking around a slightly more affluent area at the other end of the city from where I live - there sat a man on the street with his tools, pieces of leathers leaned up against the wall behind hime - - - fixing several pairs of shoes that had been brought out to him.

I didn't let this opportunity pass me by. I got his name, but it was very unusual and I didn't write it down. Unfortunately he didn't have email or a Facebook account, so I wasn't able to find a means where I can deliver copies of the images to. Hopefully I come across him again in the future.

IOShare

by Guy Roberts

I am hoping to use ioshare in lieu of a remote control trigger on the em1.
I have set up bracketing on the camera to 3 exposures at 1stop intervals, but when I use ioshare this setting seems to be switched off.
Anyone here uses ioshare this way?

For some reason I seem to be having trouble getting really sharp images using the ZD 50-200mm at full reach on the E-M1. This is particularly so hand held with IS-1. I don't recall it being such an issue when paired with an E-3. Perhaps I've been spoilt with the sharpness of the other m4/3 lenses. This is pushing me towards the M.ZD 300mm but if it's my technique that's at fault then that may be a waste of money. Is anybody having similar issues?

Hi to all just wondering if anyone has had an issue of the SD card slot not working but the CF still works fine. Have considered a factory reset or sending away for repair but thought I might ask here first.
Cheers Sean
