I really enjoyed reading through the threads at Mu-43 (it's a nice community--better than a lot of other photography forums I've been to), and I figured I ought to contribute a little to A few months ago, I bought my first M43 camera (E-M1, 12-24 f/2.8 Pro, 45mm f/1.8). I got it because the 5D Mark III I shoot with is a bit too large and heavy to carry around as a casual snapshot camera (such as when traveling or just going out somewhere). It's much smaller/lighter than the 1D Mark II I shot with previously, but it's still not petite enough to not feel like a burden. I tried to just use the camera on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but the performance was abysmal (AF, response time, manual control, image quality, etc). So I did a lot of research and tried out some small cameras--from high-end compacts to various mirrorless cameras. The E-M1 was the one that had all the features and performance level I needed. I've been quite happy with it, and I find it easy to carry around in a top-loading holster bag (I use Ape Case 650), without feeling like it gets in the way or a burden. Although I used to shoot a variety of subjects in the past (including some pro gigs), over time, I realized what I enjoy shooting the most is simply casual/candid snapshots of my wife. I like the relaxed feeling I get when shooting her, and I try not to worry too much about creating the perfect composition, lighting, pose, etc, and just focus on capturing her essence in daily life. I'm sort of like a paparazzi that's following her around a lot, whether at home or when we're out, and she's really cooperative (she's comfortable in front of the camera since she used to be an actress and model in her youth). I've been shooting her and posting to the photography section on my site, in an area dedicated to her for about 13 years now (since we first started dating), and the area is called "Kitty Cat Diary." It's called that because my nickname for her is "Mau-mi," which is Chinese for "Kitty Cat." Anyway, she's pretty much all I've been shooting since I got the E-M1 (except for the occasional sunset), and although I like the photos I get with the 5D Mark III a bit more and the performance is a bit better, the E-M1 does a pretty damn good job for the way I use it. (I shoot with the AF set to C-AF-TR, intelligent face detection). Here are some photos I've taken with the E-M1 in the last few months. It's not great photography, since I just shoot casual/candid for fun of Elena. I could be more critical and shoot more seriously, but it wouldn't be as fun/casual anymore (I've tried before--it got too serious and started to feel like a paying gig for a client or something). I know a lot of photogs love to shoot their loved ones, so I'm sure you guys all understand the joy of combining your love of photography with your love for the people you adore in your life. We don't have kids or pets, so Kitty Cat gets all of my attention.
