    Re: Fens Falconry BIF meeting?

    I was close to asking the same question Paul. Just thought I'd follow Barr1e's lead and post a couple of images to see if it stirred up any more interest before posing the same question. I suspect John may well be proved right though. Hope not, still got my fingers crossed.

    Is this going to happen?

    How many people other than me have actually said yes please?

    Anne and I joined other members visiting Fen Falconry in 2014 - an extremely exciting and rewarding day.

    Here is one from the day from my dpnow gallery.

    Peter for me I'd say yes no problem, you never know the EM5 might do better than you think. Definitely worth a try. You've been a pretty large contributor to this forum over the years it would be great to meet up.

    Andy that works for me if you can work it out. Key now is to get as many as possible to commit so a date can be fixed soon. The further back this goes the worse weather we are likely to get. Maybe a poll added to the thread is the best way to get a decision. Not sure how to do that but maybe Ian could arrange it.

    I have never been to a Falconry event and would like to. However, although I shoot with Olympus (and Panasonic) 4/3 and M4/3 and have for 40 years, I took the decision to use a Canon system for birds and have used that for a couple of years happily and see no real reason to change. So would I be allowed to bring that Canon for the flight shots? I'm not being difficult or trying to start any controversy. I run both systems and am purely interested in getting wildlife pictures and learning from the day, nothing else.

    I knew you were trying to help people with the EM1 mark 2 and so have not asked before. But when it comes to getting enough people to make it work I am raising my interest and will attend if it is allowed.

    I would try and shoot with both but as I use the EM5mk2 I would not choose to use that for flying birds but would do so on static set-ups.

    I will understand if you say no. But I'm sure much of your teaching will be relevant to any system.

    best wishes

    I might be up for that, depends on when of course.

    just to add my 2p worth.

    Living in Wales, the trip would take some 4-5 hours travel each way. Would love to attend but its just too far for me.

    Would really like to have a nearer meeting of the same calibre, cost I can justify, but not the travel. Be good to meet some of the Oly crowd in person (I think...)

    I agree very welcome indeed. All the Olympus events I've been to have been excellent.

    Unless I'm mis-informed, Olympus no longer provide any funding for this E-Group Forum, so I doubt if their financial assistance would be likely for this proposed venture. We can live in hopes though.

    This is a free bump anyway

    While Olympus no longer fund the maintenance of this site. we remain on good terms with them and I have already been asked by them to propose ideas for consideration in the future.
