Today, the new OM-5 was introduced by OM Digital Systems. As regular readers know, this is not a gear review website so we will not be doing any kind of a review on this new camera. Below you will find some links to various videos about the new OM-5 camera.
This short article features a gull’s attempted meal steal from an egret fishing at one of the ponds at Hendrie Valley. These eight consecutive images were captured handheld using a frame rate of 18 frames-per-second in continuous auto-focus.

Birds interact for a number of reasons and anticipating mid-air chases can yield some interesting and sometimes dramatic photographs. This article features 12 new images from 2 mid-air chases and discusses some simple observation techniques that can help anticipate mid-air chases.
Earlier this summer I captured a Pro Capture H run of a dragonfly doing a 180 degree turn while taking flight. Dragonflies can be erratic when taking flight but seldom change directions as abruptly as this maneuver. This run of 8 consecutive Pro Capture H images falls under the ‘slice of life’ category.

All of the images featured in this article were captured handheld using an M.Zuiko 60 mm macro f/2.8 lens, along with the in-camera focus stacking technology resident in my E-M1X . I had my camera set to record and combine 10 photographs per capture, with a focus differential of 4.
Back in May of this year I captured a special moment at ISO-10000 when doing a high ISO test at Biggar Lagoon Wetlands in Grimsby. Earlier in the day I had been successful photographing swallows in flight. It was getting later in the afternoon so I decided to change my approach and try some test images of swallows at ISO-10000 before I headed for home.
Since many of our readers own Olympus/OM Systems products I thought a lot of folks would like to read an OMDS in-depth interview recently done by Dave Etchells. Dave is well known in the photography industry and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to his interviews.
This article discusses some small sensor tips in terms of photographic technique and working in post with RAW files. The intent of this posting isn’t to suggest that people should sell their current camera gear and switch to a small sensor system. Every photographer should do their own research to determine what format, brand, and model of camera best suits their needs.
