    A friend at work asked me about the OMD EM-1 and what he had seen on line -
    Olympus Classroom Anywhere
    Landscape, Wildlife, Nature photography - some of you BIF people might want to check out the second video.

    Good to see. They aren't doing such a bad job here in the UK, but sadly trail behind the big boys still...

    And if they have any marketing in Australia, I've haven't seen it; there's certainly nothing in the rural areas.

    Yeah, these are basically marketing videos made to look like instruction videos. I checked out a few... They really didn't teach me much.

    Virtually no advertising in Canada otherwise. But then again, I don't see much from Canon here either. Most of the advertising I see is actually Nikon!

    You haven't seen the OM-D posters on the sides of bus shelters? Shame on you!

    Where I live, there are no bus shelters.

    Well, you already shoot Olympus, so there is no need to market to you anyway! We need these bus shelters here, in the city, for city folk without OM-D's!!!

    That's right, city folk never think of country folk. ;)

    Pretty unlikely in the country back-blocks where Ray is (although towns like Sale would have a bus shelter or two, it's been many years since I was in there on 'pig & lady day')! I remember when the E-M5 was first being sold & the perimeter road at Sydney airport had them on all the signs. I was pretty chuffed to see them. I can't say I've seen any TV ads of Olympus, but then I don't watch much commercial TV.

    That's right, milk comes from a bottle, doesn't it? :wink: :tongue:

    Yep, created in a milk factory, just down the road.

    And if you notice, in the background, you can also see that they make Sydney artwork as well. :biggrin:

    Actually, I have fond memories of spending my first two annual leave holidays down there (in Gormandale) with milking 75 (approx) cows in 8 bails for bulk milk on one property (with more Friesian cows) & the next still for cream (with more of those cranky Jersey cows).

    My Uncle was a dairy farmer, I wouldn't do that job for quids.

    Does that mean you would do it or wouldn't do it for quids. It is a pain when you have to go out in the pouring rain morning & night & call the cows in every day, because milking has to be done no matter what, but at least some faithful dogs do help immensely in that role.
