If you have not read the book, DO IT. I got the audio book and have listened to it twice. A modern day Robinson Crusoe. I hope the movie does not deviate too much from the book.

+Allison Sheridan posted a question that got me thinking and to be honest as a long time Mac user I was stumped. Many of us shoot in RAW and Jpg for easy of use but the ability to really push the image if needed in post. She was importing from the camera into the new Photos App and noticed she could only see the Jpg and not the RAW. There was also a small J tag on the bottom left corner. Now in most Image Management programs this is a visual sign that there is the Jpg and the RAW files Stacked together.  I still use Aperture which gives me the option to select if I want RAW or Jpg as the master or have them separate on import. Appears you do not have that level of control with Photos App. And it is not intuitive either to work out how to change it. Right now there is no way to select which one you want as master on import, you are stuck with Jpg. But after import you can swap them.

I did a series of screen captures to demonstrate how to do it. The images will still be stacked but at least the RAW will be the master. If you would like to have them separated you would need to drag them separately from the SD card into Photos App. Not the simplest method at the moment. Might help some people, might be a waste of a read but at least I learnt something new today as well. Just reinforced my decision to remain with Aperture.

NUSHIP HOBART, five photo panorama. Australia's newest Warship, built at TechPort, Port Adelaide in South Australia. Her last night before launch. Makes an old Sailors heart skip a beat.

Shot with E-M1 and trusty old 50-200 mm SWD (100-400 equiv) 4/3 lens at 100mm. #Olympusinspired    #OlympusAU   #RoyalAustralianNavy

In all fairness to the PM it is not normal protocol for a PM to be in attendance of a Warship launch. A senior Minister and a rep of the Governor General (given he is in fact the Commander in Chief of the ADF) is normal.

A bit of a personal event for me as my first job after discharging from the permanent Navy was with the AWD project office. Left when I was asked to go kick bombs in Laos.

After a false alarm (went to Strathalbyn only to discover the Balloons went to Callington) I was able to get a few nice shots of the Balloons as they took off and headed to Langhorne Creek.

Olympus Film Cameras  - 
 
Well, Karma snuck up on me today. I found some coin in my bag so I thought "what the hell, I'll treat myself to a nice bowl of Pho in the Mall". Then instead of walking straight back to work I took a little detour to a vintage record shop that also has cameras in the back. My first SLR (before it was stolen in the late 80's) was an Olympus OM10. In the back of this shop sits hidden away is an OM10 in great condition with Olympus case and 50mm ƒ1.8 with manual. I thought it was $49 so very quickly got a Fifty out but it was actually $149. So next pay I am going back to buy it and fill that void that has been with me since that dark day back in Sydney.

Funny you mention that +Tony Tulloch  this one does have the adapter as well (double score). I can not see it getting sold anytime soon as most cameras in the back of this shop have been there for a few years.

Walked around Strathalbyn in South Australia the other day before the weather change came through. Using the dramatic tone filter with my OM-D EM-1 with my new 25mm ƒ1.8 lens. #olympusinspired

The Southern Cross. I can not thank Queet and Matt from Olympus Australia for their help and their enthusiasm on Friday night.Just when you thought you knew your camera they popped up with a gem that you did not even know was there. One feature I knew of but had not played with was Live Composite on my EM-1. Matt was a little disappointed that Adelaide did not put on the nice clear sky he was looking for so we were unable to attempt it in the city. So after the meet up I dropped in to the lookout near my house and I had perfectly clear skies.

After a couple of test attempts I set the camera to task, sat in the car (with the heater on, I forgot a jumper) and 100 shots later this image came out. I had to use the torch on my iPhone to light up the tree for about 20 seconds as I found after the test exposure that there was not enough ambient light at 30 sec to light the leaves. 

After the 50 minute exposure the camera processed the image remarkably fast. Disclaimer here... I did have NR and Noise filter off. At home put it into LR and did a little tweak here and there, cropped and exported. In all I am very pleased with the result. When you look at the time to do this before, 50 minutes of shooting, then the loading of images at home, opening in PS and blending 100 photos. Takes ages, with the Live Comp the whole process is done in a quick and easy. Now to find some interesting foregrounds for my new passion.
