Your camera bag looks well weathered Bob, a sign of an active photographer.

Those Think Tank bags are sweet. The material used on the bag Bob has is particularly nice. Soft and easy to carry. I like the self-fashioned shoulder guard cover too.

$2 ea .. @ Big Lots! automobile shoulder strap feel better synthetic lambs wool thingy, works here very well.

I like this bag material, both my TT Retros are the same and I used KIWI water repellent spray on them too.

Greg -

Thank you for the background on how you customize (manually set) the White Balance. I obviously need to venture outside the box on setting White Balance, other than doing an individualized WB setting when using a flash or shooting indoors without a flash. I don't know if I could recognize a warmer or cooler scene and adjust accordingly--I'm significantly color blind (can't pass any of the color charts and traffic lights are a real challenge at times.) Oh, well... Just one more fun challenge (manually setting WB) to learn! Gotta try this out!!!

Regards,

Paul in NoVA

One note in case anyone with the E-M1 has been looking for a way to do this, I did change the EVF configuration, cogs menu "J" and "EVF style", to mode 2, which allows me to have the live histogram active and, on pressing the Fn2 button, gives me a digital level on the bottom of the screen in place of the EV compensation scale that I never use anyway.

This is the only way I can see to have the live histogram and digital level available on-screen at the same time.

Actlually 'only' setting J.Built-in-EVF (Half Way Level) imakes it happen regardless the EVF-Style (1, 2 or 3).

But, your post got me looking...... THANKS!

I like the EVF style 3 better so I'll have to look at that option. Thanks.

CORRECTION, just checked again.... 1/2 set on only works with EVF style 1 & 2, I must not have actually checked for 3, darn, have been using style 1 wonder why not 3..........

Think it may have something to do with overlaying the data on the image? In versions 1 and 2 the image is slightly smaller and the exposure information, EV compensation bar, etc is off the image. Only the histogram is overlaid.

This was one of DPReview's few gripes about the E-M1, and could be applied to any of their micro models. Not being able to show the histogram and digital level overlaid at the same time.

I like style 1 for the EVF so it works for me having it that way and I am happy to have both.
