  1. Yesterday, I updated the firmware on my EM5 and my camera settings were not affected. There's an update available for the 12-50mm lens, too.
  2. If I go to Las Vegas for the w/e, I tip in restaurants and bars; and I leave a few dollars a day for the hotel maid. What I do not tip is the hotel! Why should you tip on the price of your room on the boat? Or on the cost of fuel for the boat? Split up the cost. Take out the $ for your room and leave an appropriate tip on the balance. Just my dos centavos. Here in Los Angeles, a restaurant is now adding 3% to the bill for employee health care. Give me a break.
  3. Hmmm. I have the EM5 and dual S&S YS-D1s. I shoot TTL and get great results in macro and WA. Strobes on TTL, camera fill flash. Strobe dial +0.3 or 0 EV?
  4. Only twenty five images now. Mine are gone, too.
  5. A couple of the images are mine! Anyone know who the SOB is?
  6. With fiber optic cables you may not be able to take advantage of the fastest sync speed on your camera. If you slow the shutter speed to just under the sync speed, you can use TTL without the problem you have described. Wired strobes do not have this problem.
  7. I have an Ike housing for the Olympus SP-350 gathering dust in a closet. Anyone need/want it? Pay shipping and it's yours.
  8. My advice? Get a strobe (better, get two) and shoot with auto WB. For dark blue backgrounds in wide angle, underexpose the image and adjust the strobes to properly light the foreground. PS There are used Ikelite DS-125s for sale here and elsewhere - great bargains. If, on the other hand, you want to keep your rig compact, get a filter. You can always modify a filter to use with your camera - duct tape?
  9. Hmmm. Interesting question. That's something I've never thought of. It should work, but with the filter you shouldn't have to mess with WB.
  10. Does the ZS3 allow you to adjust white balance? If so, you can shoot manual. A filter is an option. A strobe will light subjects that are close to the camera and compensate. A filter for video is an excellent choice.
  11. Make sure you aren't in "macro" before twisting the zoom gear.
