Over the past couple of days I’ve received a number of personal emails asking me about using Nikon 1 versus Olympus for bird photography. The intent of this article is to describe my experiences using both camera systems. This is a very extensive article, so grab yourself a cup of coffee… or make a pot of tea… and be prepared to spend some time.
This article provides a summary of a number of points made in earlier articles and provides an overall M.Zuiko 75-300 assessment. Since some folks seem to focus on what this lens isn’t, I might as well state that right up front. This lens isn’t weatherproof and it isn’t designated as a pro lens. What this lens is in spades… is small, lightweight, cost efficient, and a whole lotta fun to use!
This article shares a selection of M.Zuiko 75-300 osprey images. All were captured handheld during a recent visit to Hendrie Valley.
This article attempts to describe the essence of Olympus Imaging by sharing some outstanding work done by others. Specifically Dave Etchells (Imaging Resources) and professional photographer/film maker Chris Eyre-Walker.
The newly announced Olympus 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 super telephoto zoom lens is of significant interest to a number photographers who use the M4/3 camera format, and specifically Olympus camera gear.
As regular readers know, this blog is not focused on doing gear reviews. Appreciating that many readers will have an interest in the Olympus 100-400 zoom lens, this article provides a number of links to various reviews that can be found online.
When I sat down at my computer to write this Olympus OM-D E-M1X Twelve Month Review I wasn’t quite sure where to start. So, I went back and reread the 6 month review I wrote in November 2019 to see if anything had changed in terms of my perceptions of this camera. And, what additional insights I could add.
This article shares the results of an Olympus OM-D E-M1X ISO invariance test. My base image for this test was a tripod assisted photograph captured at ISO-6400. I then took successive images at ISO-3200, ISO-1600, ISO-800, ISO-400 and ISO-200 while shooting in Manual mode.
Over the past while I’ve had some readers contact me by email with various questions about buying lenses. Some have specifically asked why I chose particular lenses and not others. This article attempts to answer a few specific reader questions, as well as provide some general lens buying considerations.
As the old saying goes, “Time flies when you’re having fun!” Beginning with some loaner gear that Olympus Americas provided at the end of May 2019, I’ve now been shooting with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X for 6 months. So… it’s time for an E-M1X 6 month review.
If one is to believe the discussions in photography chat rooms these days, the assumption would be that full frame cameras are the only choice of professional photographers. This is simply not true. This article provides some links to information about why some pros are switching to Olympus and the micro four thirds system. Interestingly, some have left full frame cameras behind.
