Hi, guys! So, finally I`ve made it to mu-43 with the new set from CE&PE 2014 (Consumer Electronics & Photo Expo). E-M1 & mZD 12-40/2,8 CE&PE is an annual show in Moscow where all major companies present their products. Segment dedicated to photography & videography is called PhotoForum. As I told you before, I`ve been a guest photographer at Olympus Russia booth and I must admit that it was quite challenging job. We`ve worked 4 days in a row & I`ve had to take pictures of models & visitors at our booth and also be an authoritative pro user to consult some other photographers who are interested in switching to M43 world. Also there was an retouch/print cab where we`ve been tweaking and printing pictures of our models and booth guests (so they may take em if they wanted to). Olympus product manager Pavel helped me all the way & also took some great pictures (he`s photographer too) & helped me a lot with retouching. But if there was any trouble, guys from Olympus helped me with it - lenses, lighting or other stuff. Booth staff was really-really helpful and caring. Big thanks to them! E-M1 & mZD 12-40/2,8 That`s Polina showing off our prints.) E-M1 & mZD 12-40/2,8 Also there was a gellery of images from Olympus photographers in Russia. You can notice Segrei`s and my pictures out there ) E-M1 & mZD 12-40/2,8 This year Olympus main products were new OM-D E-M10, Stylus 1, SP-100 ultra-zoom & SH-1 compact cameras. Also a few lens mock-ups were shown. I`m talking about 7-14/2,8, 40-150/2,8 & 300/4. All lenses are extremely compact. I`ve been amazed with size of 7-14 - it`s smaller and thinner than 12-40. If you`re familiar with 43rds optics then you can imagine 40-150/2,8 - it`s almost like 50-200 SWD in size but much more thinner in width. Or you just can imaginally stack up two 12-40/2,8 & get same picture. 300/4 is 3-5 cm longer than 40-150 and also quite compact for that focus distance. Only mobile pics of lenses, sorry ) Talking about our models... Well, they`re awesome!!! There was four of them and all are extremely cute & as I see comments on russian forums & websites they are extremely popular. I guess I can say that theay are unofficial Top Girls of The Show ))) So here`s few shots I`ve taken & PP`d during the show... Ksenia & E-M1 w/ mZD 12-40/2,8 E-M1 & mZD 12-40/2,8 Ksenia E-M1 & mZD 45/1,8 Lisa E-M1 & mZD 12-40/2,8 Polina & E-M1 w/ ZD 50-200/2,8-3,5 SWD - This one`s PP`d by Pavel E-M1 & mZD 12-40/2,8 Polina & SH-1 E-M1 & mZD 12-40/2,8 Evgenia carrying ZD300/2,8 as a baby.:smile: E-M1 & mZD 12-40/2,8 And also some I`ve edited after the show. Ksenia E-M1 & mZD 75/1,8 Polina E-M1 & mZD 12-40/2,8 Lisa E-M1 & mZD 75/1,8 Ksenia E-M1 & mZD 12-40/2,8 Also there was a few guests from Olympus Japan so I`ve took a picture of Olympus top-manager with our models & also I`ve shot a portrait of Hiro Yakushi, sport photography legend - but I won`t post these pictures due to privacy reasons, guys, sorry. That was the most overwhelming moment of the show for me - one thing to shoot models with whom we`ve became friends during the show and the other - Oly top manager and sport photography legend! But we`ve done our best and our guests was really happy with results. ))) BTW, Hiro Yakushi had his own booth at that show sponsored by Olympus. He`s shot 12 Olympics and I was simply amazed with his photos. There are 3000+ shot`s I`ve made during the show so still there`s a lot of work to do, but as for today you`ve got all the pictures that are ready. ) So, as I mentioned before it was tough but really nice experience. We`ve shot some really commercial quality pics right at the booth. I`ve talked to some pros revealing some details of `going m43` to them and a couple of them ordered some gear immediately at the booth (I guess it was E-M1 PRO kit, FL-600 and few more lenses). We`ve became friends with girls and Olympus Russia staff - they was really helpful and we`ve got everything we`ve needed during the show. Thank you guys if you`re rading! ) In other words I`m happy to be the part of Olympus family! ) Here`s a few backstage shots: And here`s us with Pavel - the guy from Olympus I`ve mentioned before. BTW he`s very good at photography and I`ll try to incline him to join our community.
