How I Became A Professional Photographer - Part II
At the beginning of 2004 I started my own company. It was a closed corporation with me as the only member and the function of the company was to operate as a marketing entity for the concrete paving slabs I was selling.

How I Became A Professional Photographer - Part I
I got hooked on photography when I was 32 years old, so by my reckoning almost 20 years have passed since I bought my first "serious" camera. But the obsession didn't start there, it went way back to when I was just 12. As a boy I was given a Canomatic "Instamatic" camera by my parents for my 12th birthday and I loved it, but it wasn't like the SLR cameras I would see in the windows of camera stores around the city. Those cameras looked the business.

The Laowa/Venus 100mm F/2.8 2x APO for Close-Up
The Laowa/Venus 100mm F/2.8 2x APO for Close-Up
 
This lens caught my eye primarily for several reasons. It was a macro lens that went to 2x magnification. That I liked. Secondarily, it claimed to be apochromatic (APO), that is: highly corrected. And third (and last in importance), it was inexpensive at around $500. And the Sony E-Mount version has 13 aperture blades, which also seems a plus.

Impressions Of Olympus' E-M1X
Olympus South Africa very kindly loaned me an E-M1X for my recent Photo Safari to Sabi Sabi and while I only had a few days before leaving on the trip to become accustomed to the camera, I did manage to produce some great images (by my standards) while using it in conjunction with the Olympus 300mm f/4.0 PRO.

It's nice to see this happening.
I've been back with film (monochrome only) for over two years now, and for me it's been the best thing I've done for a long while, having completely reversed what was a declining interest in taking photographs.

Olympus E-M1 Mk II Firmware 3.0
I just got word that Olympus has updated the firmware in the E-M1 Mk II and this sees it now getting a lot more of the features that the E-M1X has, including improved AF, expanded ISO range (down to ISO 64) as well as some other stuff that I didn't even know these cameras could do. Here's Robin Wong to run through some of the details.

24-70mm f/4.0 S
This lens is an good example of the advantages the new Z-mount brings. The large diameter of the Z mount allows the lens designers to come up with new exciting and/or better performing lenses.

Palace of Arts at Budapest by night. This is a pano image stitched to TIFF, so I had to compress it to hell to be able to upload here, so sorry about the artifacts this may cause by viewing.
