Great video and superb landscapes.  I had never heard of a cloud inversion before watching your video.  It makes for amazing, surreal landscapes.

HI Dom,  On the subject of handling and set up.  If you "EASY ISO" to On in the menu.  Then in aperture priority mode you can control aperture with the front dial and ISO directly with he back dial and exposure comp with he button and dial.  All very usable.  Combined with back button AF using the AEL/AFL button I find the handling of the camera to be excellent.

+Dombowerphoto  for back button focus, press the i button then AE/L/AF/L or custom settings->controls->AEL/AF/L and set AF-ON.

You can also bind ISO to the Video Start button for stills mode.

You can also turn on LV exposure preview in the "i" button menu.

Damn it! Today I installed another SSD drive into my daughters MacBook Pro and for some strange reason the keyboard is not working properly now. About half the keys work properly and half don't even register. I've ordered a new keyboard on eBay. Hopefully will be able to install it myself.

Great article on Olympus Flash system. Looking forward to part 2.
    Camera systems are often measured by their range of lenses and flash units consequently it is Canon and Nikon that are the benchmarks. But when it comes to flash Canikon actually use ...

Just upgraded one of my old (2010) MacBook Pro laptops to a SSD and its like having a new laptop. Can't believe how much faster everything loads. I've now order SSDs for the kids laptops too, as they're always complaining how slow they are.

The Wandering Scotsman
Introduction
Hi,  Thanks for visiting.

I was born and grew up in the NE Highlands of Scotland. I graduated from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh and joined the Oil & Gas industry.

Since then I have had the opportunity to live and work in Canada, USA, Australia, Dubai, Paris and now I'm currently living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

My passion for photography start more than 20 years ago in the good old days of film and my beloved Nikon F3. Now I'm fully digital, using an Olympus OMD E-M1 and some fantastic Olympus zooms and primes. For me M43 is the best package of size, weight, quality and performance available.

Mostly I love to photograph my travels and record my special memories. Hope you enjoy my portfolio.

Aw ra best
