In Topic: Taking a Poll.. How many of you Check your Rig vs. Carry On?

28 May 2016 - 11:50 PM

When I went to Indonesia recently I took a think tank commuter bag which swallowed my full micro 4/3 rig (EM-10) plus twin strobes. I had the camera and lenses in a small separate bag as allowed. Sailed through customs as all points, no issues apart from losing my Allen keys to security in Kuala Lumpur!

In Topic: Camera tether suggestions??

I can relate to those bow shackles coming undone. I used on to attach an SMB onto me (via a clip). It had been fine when I jumped in, and at the end of the dive when I when to reach for it, all I found was part of the shackle - the rest (including SMB!) had dropped off without me noticing.

Does this apply to transfer flights as well? (I.e where you don't even see your bags and they are put on the connecting flight directly)- do they just try and do it on your hand luggage instead? So how much earlier do you have to get to the airports to allow for this?

In Topic: Olympus 60mm First time shooting - tips?

29 July 2015 - 11:20 AM

As I mentioned, I'd noted the settings in posts talking about the lens being used with a SMC/CMC. I don't have either of these, so wondered if there was a preferred setting in this case. Hmm, two minds about the focus gear, as I know that it doesn't have a zoom capability, so won't need it for that, but on the odd occasion I might wish to manual focus, might prove useful. On the other hand, could just send it back and save some cash!

Good pictures.. Nice to see someone else shooting the EM-10, 60mm macro is definitely on my list of next purchases
