In Topic: TTL flash trigger for M43 Panasonic/Olympus cameras?

Subscribed to the topic! Although I'd stick to manual mode with my gx80, because of its slow default sync speed.

In Topic: Are people leaving micro four thirds?

13 October 2016 - 01:32 AM

....Returning to the OP's question "Are people leaving micro four thirds?", I think that this is not the case. M4/3s is a small part of a small market share. Sony's a7 series has actually encouraged SLR users to switch, but I am not convinced that many M4/3s users will have swapped over. 



I was briefly considering the swap to the a7rII from olympus, but adding up all factors, including my laziness I rather downscaled the camera towards the r100iv :D. If I am "finished" with the rx100iv, I'll most likely baptize my topside GX80 or its successor m43. I simply can't justify the added ~2kg weight and 2+k$ cost of a FF housing, I see the bulk and money costs better invested in strobes/lighting tech (I have 2 subtronic nova's waiting for optical conversion). True, this comes down to what am I shooting: mostly wide angle stuff, very little macro.

In Topic: Leaving the camera at home

I feel what you mean:) I have normally 2 trips a year, a serious one alone and a light one with my family: on the latter I definitely don't bring my full setup. Also on the "serious" trip I do the first few diving days without any camera to enjoy the ride. I don't have any obligations to deliver, it is a hobby and it is 100% my decision how much time I assign for it. Pro's don't always dive with the camera, they often check the site first.

With the emerge of the WWL-1, I am leaning towards the wet-lenses. The wwl-1 specifically is not perfect (heavy and can't be selected rectilinear as the optically inferior inon h100), but I hope there will be serious development efforts here.

Same housing as GH3/GH4 happens once in a blue moon...


Unfortunately you're right :(. Otherwise I'd consider upgrading my na-rx100iv setup, but my GAS healed enough to dismiss a 6k$ investment (camera, housing, ports...).
