Scott Bourne’s Bird Photography Gear Guide for Micro Four Thirds Shooters


Scott Bourne posted the full Bird Photography Gear Guide for Micro Four Thirds Shooters:

I am thrilled with the results I get from this gear and very thankful to the engineers who created the Micro Four Thirds format. Without it, my shooting career might be over. Thankfully, I don’t feel like I’ve had to compromise at all to make this switch and in fact, feel like I’ve gotten better images as a result. If you are interested in this gear don’t worry, it’s more than capable if you are.

Solar Eclipse Maestro just released a new version of the mac-only camera controller for eclipses with support for Panasonic cameras.  It supports the GX8 and GH4, and will support the GH5 when its firmware is updated to allow USB tether-control.
