Testing, Testing 1,2,3

1) The new Olympus 60mm F2.8 macro that was delivered today.


2) The Panasonic GX7 I received (wrong model of course……thanks once again Amazon)


3) The Metz 44-1 flash to put on top of said camera.


First thing I note is that the external flash does not fire with the electronic shutter on. I dont know if this is standard or some sort of flaw or user error.


The second is that the GX7 has a green ( or is it blue….) cast in the EVF when shooting in Mono – not really as issue as it doesnt change or flicker as in an OMD EM5 unit I had tested.


 The Metz……or maybe the Panny cameras seems to underexpose by about 2/3 of a stop. I don’t know if this is a problem or something to just be aware of, and compensate for. I don’t have another TTL flash to compare with.


Switching systems always presents a learning curve ball –  and with an important gig coming up its time to get my groove on.


The question remaining is not whether the M43 system is good enough to shoot event photography, it is whether I am good enough to shoot events with it?!
