    @Marc, my experience with stability in either lens, body or both, is to wait a few micro seconds after obtaining focus to let the stability system settle down. I currently use 3 brands of camera, Nikon, Fuji, and Olympus, and I use the same principle with them all. An example from the weekend, handheld using auto focus and IBIS

    Another great weekend out chasing native orchids. Unfortunately the sun wasn't out for my visit to French Island, so no sun orchids on show, but did get to see the French Island Spider-orchid amongst others. The wildlife this season has been amazing, and so have the snake sightings. #1 French Island Spider-orchid #2 Purple Donkey Orchids are also out at the moment #3 This unusual looking fly on French Island #4 Echidna #5 Copperhead Snake on French Island #6 Blue Tongue Lizard at one of the reserves on the weekend #7 Copperhead Snake at my local reserve #8 This was as close as I was going to get #9 As we parted ways....

    The ducks are flying.... Caleana major - Flying Duck Orchid or Large Duck Orchid 12image focus stack
  4. I’ve found the 1080p including FTA HD channels just fine on the iQ4. The promo 4K video was superb, now just waiting for the live feed.

    Thank you. I was thrilled to get to see and photograph the orchid in the second image.

    Spring is now upon us... #1 Caladenia oenochila #2 Caladenia robinsonii #3 Caladenia parva #4 Thelymitra antennifera #5 Lyperanthus suaveolens #6 Pyrorchis nigricans #7 Chiloglottis gunni
  7. Well that was easy...changed the box over, called the number on the screen to activate the sim, it did a firmware update and working a treat so far. I used the existing cables from the iQ2 to save pulling the rack out to get access to the back of the AVR. Now to wait for some 4K content. 🙂

    That is a quiet day. I like the processing!

    Unlocking Panasonic DMR-UBT1

    Unfortunately, the code reset is only for DVD's. There maybe a hardware upgrade available, but they're usually quite expensive IMO. http://www.gattiweb.com/bluraymod.html You may find the key sequence online, I purchased one of these and changed my three Panasonic players. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Panasonic-DVD-Blu-ray-player-multi-region-hack-remote/110602620681?
  10. Thanks, hopefully they get it sorted before I get mine Doesn’t worry me, so long as the Rugby World Cup is in 4K 😀
  11. I just put my order in for the iQ4, hopefully when I install it there won't be any issues

    All handheld, except the last one which was using a tripod and ND filter. I like the 16-55mm, although it is heavy, it works well with the X-H1 and IBIS IMO.

    I purchased mine not long after they came out. I used it mostly on our recent trip to the UK and it never missed a beat. Here are a few snaps from the trip using the 16-55mm lens. The reason I got the battery grip was to get the additional batteries cheap. I took both the X-H1 and X-T2 along in case there were any mishaps along the way. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6
