    Flickr Pro price rise

    I did consider getting another year with the old price but I'm not too confident that Flickr will still be around 1,5-2 years from now. I just had my 1 year subscriction renewed in November or December. I'd hate to pay for a year in vain in addition to searching a new service to replace Flickr...

    New Olympus Camera Mid February

    Yeah, HHHR via firmware update would be awesome! Even if the final image creation took longer than with the dual cpu X-model. I can wait since it's still easier & faster than doing it manually on my pc. So was the GH5s sensor and yet it uses one. Don't get too caught up in those specs sheets.

    So Sad! :-(

    The word "sad" doesn't even begin to cover it. And I'm more angered than sadden by these images and what's going on down under. Why? Because it's blatantly evident that this is "man made" disaster and yet people in high places deny it only because of one thing: money. Well, scratch that. Two...

    Grip for EM5ii - what do you think of this one

    I've now shot one 8h gig with E-M10II + 40-150mm f/2.8 and one 2h show with E-M5III + 40-150mm f/2.8. Both without extra grips. Neither camera needs one with that lens. The left hand (aka the supporting one) does all the heavy work and the right hand's job is to control the dials and press the...

    Grip for EM5ii - what do you think of this one

    If I were to buy a grip for my E-M5III I'd like to get a similar to this. But the E-M5III doesn't need one so I'm fine without one too. :)

    Olympus registered a new camera today....

    A couple of months ago I read that Olympus had sent E-M10IVs to certain people for testing. It had a new sensor and the hated (IMO) swivel screen but the rumor also said it was to be released in autumn 2020. I wonder if they got the time wrong or could it actually be E-M1III already? I seriously...

    Shootout GAS attack: Oly EM1mkii vs Sony A7iii

    A few months back I started to feel the draw of the Sony full frames... Went to a local camera store and tested how different cameras felt in my hands. I'm glad I did that. There's no way I want a camera (ie. body alone!) that feels so heavy compared to my E-M5. And one nice unexpected thing...

    OMD EM1.2 vs EM5.3

    Exactly my thoughts as well. I'm in the "every mm counts" so I'll be in the E-M5III camp on this one. Have had mine for a week now and I (almost) couldn't be happier and I know it wouldn't be the case with an E-M1.

    Did it, traded my m5 for m5.3

    Initially I thought my E-M10II would need a (custom) grip too but after shooting 5-6 hours at an event with the new E-M10II & 40-150mm f/2.8 combo I feel there's no need to add more weight to the camera. The ergonomics is good enough and I also have the E-M5III too and it will be the main camera...

    What photography related item did you SELL this week (and why)?

    An unacceptably poor service by the Finnish postal service led me to buying a new E-M10ii (with 14-42mm) for 300EUR and that "rendered my other E-M5 obsolete". So I sold it with the new kit lens for 130EUR to my wife's sister. Since the postal services finally managed to deliver my E-M5III to me...

    Olympus lens roadmap updated 2019-11-27

    So do I. I don't think any brand will ever make a lens that would replace this lens as my "main lens". In theory a 10-50mm f/2.8 (or faster) would be ideal but they simply cannot make it as small (or smaller as I would prefer) so that's that. End of story. I'll stick to my beloved 12-40mm and...

    E-M5 mk III released at US$1199

    So far, the E-M5iii is the closest thing to the mythological perfect camera. Close but not quite there yet. I think 1cm taller body, a tilt screen & handheld hires might have been enough to claim that title. Maybe next time, eh?
