Diego: “Here I leave some of my 2015 photos taken with Olympus cameras and lenses (I’m Olympus Europe & Spain Visionary). https://youtu.be/F8uPG8X1fHc”
Alan: “Finally a way to get High Speed Sync using MFT with Godox AD flash!! https://youtu.be/2AeRr1UNWz8. Using Cactus V6 triggers to get High speed sync with Godox Witstro AD180/360 using MFT – Olympus E-M5 mkII (possibly panasonic + Fujifilm too but not tested.)
I believe the Godox is also known as Interfit Strobies Pro Flash, Cheetah Light CL-360P and Calumet Genesis GF200”
Bjoern: “Hi I’m Bjorn from Belgium and an enthusiastic amateur GH4 moviemaker. I pre-ordered the new Panasonic 100-400 in the Netherlands for €1699. (Olympus 300 f4 costs here €2600; so the difference in price is bigger here). For making movies of nature and wildlife I prefer a zoom. Wild birds are mostly too far away for a nice close-up, so I’m very excited about the new Panasonic 100-400. I started with the Panasonic 100-300 but was very disappointed in this lens: too soft, too slow focus and manual focusing ring too stiff. The Olympus 75-300 was a lot better: micro-detail is better, focusing ring buttersmooth and a very smooth bokeh. I use this lens not further then 240 mm. This gives me in 4K mode a +-600 mm and the possibility to zoom in till 1440P. You can see the result in a movie I made last October in a little natural resort in the Netherlands: a mix of beautiful landscapes, wild birds and autumn colors. Lenses used: olympus12-40mmPro, Olympus 75mm f1.8 and the Olympus 75-300mm. Enjoy! www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0RWZost7vc”
