There has been some recent postings about Olympus. Specifically the rumour about the imminent closing of its camera division. The purpose of this article is to provide readers with some additional information on Olympus that they can consider.
This past April my wife and I did a self-drive tour of Ireland, circumnavigating the island. Our journey took us along the south east coast through the Copper Coast area of Ireland. This article shares a small selection of photographs captured along this part of the coastline of Ireland.
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 shares some photographs of small birds taking flight. All photographs were captured hand-held using the E-M1X Pro Capture H mode (i.e. 60 frames per second) during a two-hour photo session at Hendrie Valley.

It is interesting to have a look at the financial performance of various companies that manufacture cameras. As could be expected, general trends are obvious… decreasing unit sales, revenues and profits. After the camera market peaked in 2012, it has been in a state of continued decline.

I suppose there will always be folks who criticize various camera brands and formats that other people buy… especially small sensor naysayers. Ever since I bought my first Nikon 1 camera in the summer of 2013 I became more aware of this phenomenon.
