  1. 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. The first thing that struck me about this camera when taking it out of the box is the sheer size of it. It is huge. If you’ve been using Micro Four Thirds bodies to get away from the bulk of traditional DSLR’s then you will not want this camera. I was quite shocked at its siz
  2. Version 1.0.0

    18 downloads

    This is a preset I use on most of the images I take with the Olympus E-M1. It is very basic, but adds a bit of depth to the colours and overall visual punch.

    12-200mm M.Zuiko F3.5-6.3 Lens

    Another "non-technical review." Yes, the zoom range is fantastic. But if you start enlarging the images, I find they are not particularly sharp. I am talking about landscape shots. I have not done any macro shots with this yet. Frankly, had I spent more time with the lens after purchasing, I think I would have sent this one back. Perhaps I got a "dud?"

    A Question about Olympus 8mm F3.5

    I am contemplating the purchase of an MFT Olympus 8mm F3.5. I am thinking about a used one that does not cost and arm and a leg. Dallas had a few comments to make about the 8mm F1.8.... but I find very little about the 8mm F3.5 beyond the initial Olympus announcement when it was introduced. Also, it appears to no longer be in the Olympus "stable." Can anyone give me any insights? Perhaps the fact it is discontinued is the best indicator. BUT, it still demands a fairly high price on eBay (for whatever that is worth.)

    Olympus E-M1 MkIII

    This anticipated new model in the Olympus E-M1 line up has been released. Some links: https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympus-om-d-e-m1-mark-iii-initial-review https://www.olympus.com.au/product/dslr/em1mk3/index.html It will be interesting to see how this new comer stacks up against its predecessors, especially in the stills IQ department. (Meanwhile Nikon have released their new D6 - in good time for the summer Olympics in Tokyo later this year.)
  6. Note: This thread will contain a series of entries about the Fotozones Wildlife Safari 2019, including images, impressions of the gear I used and anecdotes about the safari itself. I wrote some of it while on safari, but had to stop as my laptop just wasn't up to the task of proper editing, so I am now doing the editing at home and will add my favourite shots as I go. Please feel free to ask questions about the trip and the gear in this thread. I've been in Johannesburg the past two days welcoming our 2019 Safarians, including @GrahamWelland, @CarreraS and @rbeesonjr. Yesterday we

    Impressions Of Olympus' E-M1X

  10. Olympus South Africa has very kindly loaned me a new Olympus E-M1X for my safari starting next Monday, along with a 300mm f/4.0 PRO. I have to say ... this camera is way bigger than I thought it would be. It hearkens me back to my days of running around with a Nikon D2H. This is it next to my original E-M1. You can't really tell the depth of the grip from this image, but rest assured, it's considerably deeper than my camera. I will be writing a field diary during the course of the safari and posting it here on Fotozones, so if you are thinking of getting an E-M1X I will impart all

    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.

    Volvo

    This Volvo XC40 in retro Amazon Blue is a 190hp Auto, a car that gets you in no-time in Zen-mode. Very comfortable and relaxing but not the drivers car our previous one (a Mazda CX3) was. I loved to rev the smooth and spirited Mazda's 2-litre non-turbo engine, the Volvo has so much turbo-assisted torque it mostly runs below 2.500rpm. And still the Volvo uses a lot more fuel than the Mazda. All that comfort and safety comes at a price, a lot of weight.

    50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 SWD

    My favourite telephoto lens for the MFT system is this one. I find that the optics are better than the newer 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens (not that that lens is bad, it just isn't as good bokeh wise as this one). The tripod mount is removable and when you take this off as well as the somewhat large hood, it fits into a moderately sized camera bag without much fuss, which gives you a very versatile wedding lens that has a smaller form factor than the typical 70-200mm f/2.8 for 35mm systems. If you also can find the Olympus 1.4x teleconverter for this you will get an extra 40% magnificat
  14. Over December and January I had the opportunity to use a demo sample of the new addition to the M.Zuiko PRO family of lenses, namely the Olympus 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO. This is less of a review and more of a collection of my impressions and opinions of this lens, where I am basing my observations purely on some recreational photography I managed to do over the holiday period. Ideally I would have liked to do some proper work with the lens, unfortunately much of the country is in deep slumber over this period of time, so work didn’t really happen for me while I had the lens with me.

    Oshkosh 2018 Airshow

    A few weeks ago "AirVenture 2018" better known as Oshkosh took place in where else, Oshkosh, Wisconsin. 2018 marks my 11th consecutive year in a row to visit and photograph this monumental event. The scale and scope of this event is hard to imagine unless you have visited it in person. For the over week-long event, over 600,000 visitors, 5,000 volunteers, 10,000 aircraft arrivals, almost 20,000 aircraft operations, almost 3,000 show planes and over 40,000 campers in 12,000 sites on the airport. For me, it is one of the few airshows I attend and photograph, so it always takes a few days to
  16. Dallas inspired me to show some of what can be done with a mirrorless camera and aviation photography. I have been taking aviation photos for years with my Micro 4/3 cameras, but getting the fast-moving jets and sufficient prop-blur on the propeller-driven aircraft has been a real challenge. With the recent advances and firmware updates on the Olympus E-M1, I was finally able to capture what I think are worthwhile photos, at least for me. All of these shots were taken with the E-M1 "classic" in 2015 and 2016. Airshow season for 2017 is just starting, and I am anxious to see what I can do w

    Chickadee in an Apple Tree

    This is a Black-capped Chickadee seeking shelter in the apple tree in our Minnesota backyard. These little guys are always fun to watch and always seem happy. This one ducked into the apple tree for safety, likely after seeing me point my E-M1 mk11 and 300mm f4.0 his direction, shot at ISO 1600.
  18. @Joe Edelman posted a video on his first 6 months shooting with Olympus after switching from Nikon. He makes many of the same conclusions I did 5 years ago.
  19. Note: unfortunately the original images used in this article were lost during a software upgrade. Those of you following my (sometimes daily) musings will already know that I was selected to photograph the 47th ICANN international meeting which was held here in Durban, South Africa last week. It was a pretty hectic affair with something like 50 breakaway sessions happening every day, not to mention the bits in between, such as VIP breakfasts, lunch meetings, social gatherings and gala dinners. I was often needed in two places at once, so I had to move around quickly.

    Olympus 50-200mm with 1.4x TC

    I see no image degradation with this combo at all. In my honest opinion, this lens and 1.4x TC outshines the newer 40-150mm 2.8 PRO with its own TC by a long way.
  21. In this vlog episode we chat about using the legacy 4/3 lenses from the Olympus DSLR era on the mirrorless Olympus OM-D E-M1 (original) camera bodies. We also demonstrate the auto focus speed of the 50-200mm (with a 1.4x TC) in an outdoor situation. Jump directly to the AF speed demo at 16:00. If you have suggestions for future vlog episodes please let us have them in the comments.

  23. Last year I co-led an epic, month long Photographers.travel safari from Cape Town all the way up through Namibia, to the border of Angola and then a little bit into North-Western Botswana for good measure, before heading back to Cape Town via Namibia. We did this road trip in two vehicles with 8 guests (all Nikongear.com members) and covered some 8500km (5300mi) in total. It was by far the longest road trip I have ever done. It was gruelling at times because of the state of some dirt roads we had to use, but it was well worth it because it also saw me shooting more photographs in that month lo

    I discovered a feature of the software I didn't know existed before and have implemented it in the page footer of all posts where tags are in use. So, for example, having tagged this post with Nikon and Olympus, readers should see shortcut links to several posts with the same tags in the footer. Enjoy!
  25. A couple of people have asked me to make a video about some of the more advanced features of the Olympus Flash system. In this video I take a very quick look at a few of the features I find most useful. If you have any questions about the video, the flash or Olympus in general, please post them in the comments and I will do my best to help you.
