    I've been manual... and I'm manual half the time, I can swap back and forth :-) Early on I said it's a good cheaper option to get a good old strobe and run it manual.

    The Olympus RC system is wireless (and fibreless) on land but the nooks and crannies, and losses underwater mean you need a fibre to use the system while housed. The infra-red the sensor in the...

    Strobes are for winners :-)

    The TG series work pretty well for macro even without an external strobe - as you get closer the light angle gets a bit extreme but that's only a particular problem because you can get so very close...

    The Olympus OI Share app will do it.

    The later TGs have WiFi which has a matching phone app to allow you to do various stuff. This includes remote control of much of what the camera does and remote viewing... and remote shutter. Great...

    In my experience... typical 3D printing is good for structural, planar parts but as it's built up in layers is poor at staying non porous or dealing with twisting loads. Although I can print solid I...

    For Georgina - The old 17mm wasn't anything special so I'd look elsewhere - there are more than a few fun, small lenses for m43; the Oly 45mm is very good for portrait and not being on top of your...

    Well that's my take :-) The Standard long port (the unthreaded one with the wide red, plastic end) is very amenable and the main criticism is that it's a bit big... you couldn't use all those lenses...

    The standard long port is pretty flexible - it can obviously cope with all the 14-42s, as well as 9-18, 12-50, 60, Oly 45, Lumix 45 and potentially others... the pancakes are very short and would...

    One of the things the up sides of the 9-18 is that it uses the same zoom ring as the 14-42, which probably won't get much use once you've bought a wide and angle and macro lens ;-) That actually...

    What Pete said! If you have the 8mm you know if is great for big scenes and exploiting poor vis too. The 9-18mm is faster to focus and much more flexible if you have a varied site to visit. Good for...

    It's only fair to the S70 to say that unsurprisingly it's very similar functionally to the S90, just older. There was a hiatus between the S80 and S90 but aside from being bigger the controls are...

    Hi Mark,

    You've guessed that just adding a strobe to a camera that doesn't have a clue what you're doing isn't a home run. As you've got the YS-02, which is manual, that is the dominant light...
  18. Samyang vs Lumix

    I have both (at the moment at least!) as I've a land review to do of them but the bottom line is price - as you'd expect. The Lumix is better but nearly 3x the cost, it isn't 3x better.

    The Lumix...

    I think quite a few strobes claim they can cope with multiple pre-flashes but those from the ZX-1 are very rapid, like the Pens, and some strobes aren't ready for that. I think Inons are but if...
