morepix: What we don't like:Covering this kind of item on DPReview.
And as for the "simplistic" interface under the likes list -- the word means oversimplified. :-)
So you have the right to speak for the rest of us? Amazing. Take your arrogance somewhere else.
.Sam.: This review very much smells like advertisement ;-(There are MANY other photo sharing/storage sites with much better interface and cheaper. None of them were included in the comparison chart. They didn't even through in their own product ... Amazon !!Very strange review choice.
Perhaps to you it is strange, and you can deal with that. I, for one, found it useful as I am looking for such a site. Also, no where did I read advertising is evil, and you are more than welcome to seek out one of those other sites, rather than complain here.
Steve in GA: Looking through the comments here, I'm struck by depth of the depth of the vitriol. Apparently, few of the commenters saw these pictures and simply paused to remember that awful day and the 3,000 people that died.
It was the result of the intent to commit murder, plain and simple. Put the blame where it lies, with the 19 evil men who perpetrated the crime. They and there ilk alone are responsible for carrying out the crime. In this regard this incident is no different than any other murder carried out since the dawn of time.
Unfortunately, all that they know is hate. If I cared, I might feel sorry for them, but I do not. Pay them no never mind, and do remember the people from all over the world killed on that day and many other days by others with the same hate.
Congratulations on winning the challenge.
Very nicely done indeed, spot on detail and capture.
Mirrorless Crusader: Nothing special; anybody could have taken those pictures if they were rich and insane enough to spend their time biking to every third world country they can find.
Nothing special? Then by all means get out and take those pictures and share them with us. We wait to be awed by them!
steelhead3: A fun exhibition...I do wonder why the British are so enthralled with the past?
Those who do not are doomed to repeat it. We are what we are as a direct result of the cumulative history before us.
Roger Engelken: So far, more than one hour trying to update the firmware and no luck. You just have to LOVE this technology. I certainly do not. Fortunately the camera still comes on and shows version 1.1.
I am sticking with 1.1. After three attempts over a couple of hours, no luck. The camera is fine, the "upgrade" is not worth the risk.

A very fine set of images here, in what they show and how they are composed. I especially like the last one, quite real, quite genuine with a real message and bond.
LaMesa: With all due respect for the photographer's skill of arranging, taking and post processing attractive pictures, I do agree with some of the posters, who are not so enthusiastic about her work.
To me the pictures do not represent real life, but an unreal postcard type idyll of a dream world, not to be found in Russia, nor anywhere else - too sweet, too flawless. As opposed to the marketing claims, these pictures do not represent anything typical of Russian country life.
As an alternative, please find attached a link to a picture of Army photographer Bill Permutter, taken in Spain in the fiftees, one of my favorites forever.http://cdn1.spiegel.de/images/image-523258-galleryV9-dmcr.jpg
So all pictures must represent real life, or real life as you see it? Really? So they do not represent real life to you, oh well. Reality is often our own perception, as is clear in your post. And while I have no personal knowledge of life in Russia, or in many other places for that matter, I see no need to find an alternative, these pictures suit just fine.
The photograph has an almost painting quality to it, and that makes the image stand out. A very fine capture there. You are right, the photographs we take are a reflection of who we are and our personal inspirations, likes and dislikes. I would not mind hanging this image framed, you captured the setting well.
Countless wars have been fought on land and sea visible in that image, yet we are one species, on one world, in one very large universe. Images such as these show that far better than words can say. Yet we continue to war in the name of power, wealth and ideology. One fragile world. Will we ever figure that out.
Thank you for sharing these beautiful images of a pivotal era in the history of this nation. It is truly beautiful to see these images in color, both of war time and of peace time. It is through efforts such as this that we can look back and see those times, the very times that shaped this nation in the decades to come. Kodachrome and film in those days took a great deal of effort, and the results produced are a gift to the ages. Thanks again for sharing these and the link. I was not aware of their existence.
jozhua: They should have done this way before, its been years since the E-5. I think they are doing the right thing here but they should have done it sooner than this.
Well I suppose two years and five months can in the strictest sense be considered years. That is a symptom of our must have it yesterday mindset. Time (oh that word) alone will tell what comes of all of this.
TimK5: "the benefit of Micro Four Thirds and Four Thirds is compact size"
So, why continue develop 43rd? A total waste of resources! I would never buy a 43rd cam, but I got an OM-D. The only reason was small size and weight. If 43rd were the only choice I'd stick with a standard DSLR. For me, to abandon DSLR completely, the next OM-D must not be larger and heavier than the current model and needs serious improvement in high ISO and cont. AF performance! And 20+ MP would be great.
You may consider it a waste of resources, while others may and do not. There is more than just body or lens size and megapixel count to consider in a system, there is the end result of a quality picture that displays the benefits of the system and the eye of the photographer. Many systems out there can reach that end result, and many of those systems you, and likely others, will not like. I may not care for one system or another, but I have seen the results than human skill applied to a technology can produce, and in the end, that is the joy in photography, whatever the source.
schaki: Problem is that there is probably not many users left which still actively uses their E-4x0, 5x0. May be different for 600-users and diehard E-1, E-3 and E-5 users.Many have may have made the switch to other dslrs which offered better high iso and Dr and maybe even switched to Olympus m4/3 or some other mirrorless system. The future in general for Dslrs aint looking very bright with the mirrorless system beginning to catch up in AF-speed which many of them still lagged behind.
Well here is one that uses an E-420, E-620 and E-5. Whatever any new system may or may not hold, if it makes full use of the beautiful line of four thirds mount Zuiko digital lenses, that is the bottom line. There are many strong systems out there, and I for one would rather see Olympus and the major manufacturers not abandon the world of photography to the smartphones and the like.
Thank you for posting this article and interview. As an E-5, E-620 and E-420 user, along with several of the Zuiko four thirds mount lenses, I would welcome continued investment in the line by Olympus. Time alone will tell.
Beautiful capture with exquisite detail.
