    After reducing the number of Bison down to just 85, left in the entire country in the late 1800's, our US Buffalo Reserve and other locations have brought them back from the brink of extinction. Thankfully. These are amazing animals.

    Carlos... I've been playing tourist with a motorhome, on a cross country USA trip for the last 7 months. Most of my images from this trip are travel/tourist style. I often shoot in P mode unless I need a specific aperture or shutter speed for various effect. I capture RAW only and develop in Lightroom4. Typically, I will adjust curves, bump clarity, vibrancy, and saturation. I also burn down the skies most of the time and sometimes open shadow areas a bit with curves. That's about it. After decades of earning a full time living as a commercial and portrait studio owner, I'm excited to have closed the studio, refused paying gigs, layed down the big guns and now just shoot purely for myself... with a large assortment of wonderful m4/3 gear. . Life is good.

    I'm not a fan of zoom lenses in general but since this 12-50 could not be removed from the kit I gave it a try.

    Ario... Close up seems to be the area where the 12-50 really shines. IQ with the lens appears better with CU than at standard distances.

    Nice image.

    How do you like the lens performance with the stone wall images when viewed at 100%? I would love to be able to see that second stone building image at full res.

    Here is a little Tractor Porn

    this first one - I've no idea whether it's a statement . . or whether it's an accident, but considering that the collections are all for breast cancer I found it a little poignant:

    Hi Jono,

    I can't say how cold the sea was because I never as much dipped a toe in it on our short visit up there. Did see one hard soul swimming though. We were dead jammy with the weather though, was almost like summer

    Congrats to Emma on her fund raising and tractor run.

    The story behind the new acquisition is that we took a small detour to Ffordes on our way up to Portsoy I had just intended to hand in a bunch of Sony lenses for sale there, but innocently enquired if they had any OM-D's in stock. The kind chap unpacked the only one they had, put a battery in and let me play with it. I kind of felt obliged to buy it then. They also had a used 100-300 Panny which I picked up at the same time as I thought it might come in handy for the wildlife.

    Anyway, I now am back to 3 camera systems, having sold all my Sony DSLR FF gear. Have the Ricoh GXR plus assorted MF M lenses, the Fuji X-Pro 1 with the lovely fast Fuji AF lenses, and the OM-D with zooms and IS. Can't bear to part with any of them

    So far very pleased with the OM-D. Took a bit of fiddling to set things up!

    Had a nice trip to the May Island yesterday, lots of Puffins. I recall last time I went there with a 200mm zoom on the DSLR and I got birds that filled about a quarter of the frame, so I expected with the 100-300 and X2 crop that I would fill the frame this time - not so, they had got wind of this plan and had moved much further away so I still had to crop.

    Cheers
    David Anderson

    Coward - I nearly always go in for a quick dip (even in December in Cornwall).
    I'm very jealous of your trip though

    Ah! Ffordes - grumpyland! They're really good, but dangerous!

    I'm just down to two systems - OMD and M9. A good pairing to cover most things - I keep meaning to try M lenses on the OMD - R lenses work really well - focus peaking would be nice, but actually the EVF is so good that one can manage pretty well anyway.

    I think the OMD is fab - and hand holding at 300mm seems to be pretty easy. I've learned to keep AF on the shutter and to 'mash' it - CAF doesn't seem to work that well, but the AF is so quick that it nearly always gets the shot - I haven't tried birds, but certainly surfers.

    Have a great time - I'm really jealous!

    all the best

    Luke was born on the same day the USA declared independence from England, so he thinks the July 4 fireworks are in celebration of his birth.

    Jono: Thanks! It was a bit too much of a 'fixer-upper'; not to mention the long commute, and the several million dollars worth of wheat farm it was sitting on. Yes, she was. 350mm lens and the tilt-up lcd - very stealthy, except the barista on the right caught me.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    I'm going to have to go back to this spot with a different lens. This is cropped down, wrong aperture, and soft; but, I still like it. Mt. Rainier, Seattle's new 'Mini-Eye', and one of the biggest Washington State Ferries. I could photoshop the Space Needle in? BTW: the elevated road's becoming a tunnel in the next few years (probably with a building to spoil this view!).

    I know Jono, I didn't go prepared for swimming and I don't think they would appreciate skinny dipping there.

    It was a surprise for us that the weather was so nice for the first couple of days, Pat actually had to go and buy some sun screen as she got burnt. We had a super time and stayed at a fantastic B&B which was like a stately home - in fact it was one in the past.

    Back to reality now though.

    I really like this one of Saul. Its so moody and evocative of 50's black and whites.

    Who wouldn't appreciate skinny dipping? . . . there isn't anyone there! The knack of swimming unexpectedly is that you wait until nobody is within a reasonable distance . . . take off all your clothes - go swimming, stand about as long as feasible . . then put your clothes back on - don't make the mistake of trying to dry yourself with your shirt . . . the idea is that you don't need to carry anything extra. I did this at the Lido in Venice last October - just about where Dirk Bogarde breathed his last in Death in Venice. Vulgar? yep. Exhiliarating? yep! Arrested? nope!

    Thank you Diane - I was pleased with it as well (pity he still smokes though)

    I happened upon the beginning of festivities for the "4th Annual Red, White and Dead Zombie Walk 2012". The actual walk was about 7 hours later, but these were some staff getting warmed up. Seattle had the world record (most Zombies in the parade, but Mexico City took it away) . I don't know if Seattle got it back, tonight.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Some non-zombie shots from today. I picked up this lens because it was smaller and 'filterable'. IQ, and speed, not as good as the Panasonic 7-14 (which, I also have); but, I'm still, generally, pleased with it.

    I dunno, Matt, that 67 rangefinder looks pretty undead to me.

    (God, I miss those big negatives..)

    Mike, both of those got me to stop and look and look again. And probably I'll look once again.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    I didn't think that I would ever re-visit m43 world again, but here I am ready for another try. I got tired of waiting for Sony to implement firmware fixes for the NEX7 (notably auto ISO and the dreaded video button). After seeing the great image quality that people have been producing here with the OMD I caved in to temptation once again and decided to grab a nice little black OMD that showed up in stock at a favorite camera store. I'm shooting now primarily with legacy lenses and old adapters that I still have from my previous bout with m43 cameras. IBIS was a major factor in my decision to go with the OMD.

    A few first samples using various lenses. The old M adapter I had would not focus to infinity on the OMD, so that needs to be replaced.

    HI Carl
    Great to see you hear (and rather unexpected). Focus peaking would be nice, but I've found that the IBIS holding it steady makes manual focusing pretty painless (and there's a kind of increase of contrast in the in-focus bits).
    all the best

    Thanks Jono. Yes, MF with the OMD is really an enjoyable experience.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    My first posting here so please be gentle . I got this wonderful little camera as a lightweight replacement for my canon 60D and have been having a very happy time finding out what it can do. The 12-50 kit lens has been a real suprise for close-up and macro work and its even better when I combine it with an old canon 450D close-up filter. Here's an example of what I am getting + a link to an album on Photobucket where there are some more images.

    (This site is a great resource by the by, I'm glad to have found you all)

    Welcome Brian - great results on the macro of the bee.


    The kit lens isn't bad at all.

    Cullen harbour - the kids were having a great time leaping in.

    Think he was exceeding the 3 Knot limit in this one:
