On article Olympus Capture software now available for E-M1 owners (37 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jim Salvas: I've been using this for two days and it is a very well-designed app. It's responsive and everything works seamlessly.

I understand why Olympus has made this available only on the E-M1. The E-M1 is positioned as Olympus' professional-grade model and since tethered shooting appeals mostly to pros the app further helps differentiate this top of the line model.

I guess so, but why not allow other OM-D owners to purchase for a reasonable fee, say, $25-30. None of the OM-D cameras are slouches, nor are they inexpensive.

I expect price point to be high, but at least Epson is upgrading scanners. Many of us have old 120 and 4x5, etc. film negatives to scan.

blue hour: - no touchscreen
- no Wifi
- can't record 4K video
- more expensive than the competition (Pentax K3, Sony A77 Mk II,Olympus E-M1)
- all of those competitors feature stabilization built into the body, that works with every lens you attach
- rumours of a hybrid viewfinder (like the Fuji X100 T) didn't make it to the production line- Canon should reinforce their innovation management

Look how long Nikon had wireless only as an adapter. Canon and Nikon just don't think that way.

perivalepaul: If I upgrade it will be from version 9.

Two questions, do you you think it will be of benefit from 9 to 13 and does 13 contain the pen tool ?

I'll be using it for photo work and very little if any video.

Thanks.

Paul...

I do very simple editing. The biggest advantage to upgrading is accessibility to more RAW translators and, as far as I can tell, Photoshop Elements 11 has a fuller version of Adobe Raw than earlier versions.

My biggest complaint: removing CS Bridge in favor of PSE Organizer. No matter what verison I use, I have to intall PSE 8 to get CS Bridge.

Wonderful tool and value for what it is. Also, there are many great PSE tutorials and books out there. And plug-ins/enhancements to add back Curves and Channel Mixers, for starters.

One neat trick: you can open a JPEG image as "Camera Raw" and do some of the processing available to a RAW file.

Gesture: D3X, more than 20 buttons, dials whatever on the back alone. The console of the space shuttle was less complicated.

This is probably why it is so hard for Canon and Nikon to innovate. The underlying circuit board probably "locks in" so many functions. I have the same critique of the Df in its vein-just so busy; almost seemed like a parody of a camera. I'd like to see OEMs rethink the DSLR.

Take the challenge, Canon. Navigate an APS-C (Canon type: 1.6 crop) modle to EVF finder.

Lou54: No Wi-Fi and no touchscreen is disappointing. Otherwise some really great improvements.

Even the EOS-M has a touch screen!

But the most interesting camera at Photokina. At least, Nikon is advancing "affordable" full format.

How this have in-camera focus adjustment like the Pentax DSLRs?

This is getting closer to what M43 could be.

Good to see Sigma DP1 given its due.

In reply to:

Gesture: Hardly exciting, especially at $700, but for Canon I can see where it's "adventuresome." Where's the EVF?

Nothing wrong, but as simple a camera as the Nikon P60 many moons ago proved that an EVF could be conveniently incorporated into point and shoots.

Focus recall and focus range= GREAT FEATURES. Can't wait until imaging resource reviews this camera.

GM5 and LX100 = 2 game changers. Look at the lens mount compared to the sensor and I think M43 lenses could have been engineered even smaller-to fully realize the potential and promise of M43.

Panasonic gets it with form factors, EVFs and video. I hope the image quality is there. Olympus can make that sensor sing.

On article Photokina 2014: Olympus stand report (75 comments in total)
In reply to:

obsolescence: I'm very disappointed that no DSLR successor to the E-5 has been announced, and "why not" is the big question somebody should have asked. Olympus has left its original four-thirds users stranded, which means we have to decide whether to sell off our expensive lenses (which require an adapter to M-4/3 and don't autofocus with video, or so I've heard). Hey Olympus: we are the customers that made it possible for you to build a successful M-4/3 system, so why have you abandoned us? DSLR cameras still have advantages over mirrorless, esp for pros, and 4/3 has advantages over FF and APS-C.

I agree and it might not seem like it now, but Sony A mount owners may face a similar situation-the future at Sony looks to be E and FE mounts,

In reply to:

onlooker: NX1 looks really nice, but is nearly the size of an FF DSLR and a price not that far off. With relatively little name recognition in the camera world, it might be a hard sell.

I like the spirit. The NX1 reminds most of Olympus and four thirds SLRs built to a high quality. Only this has one of the latest and greatest sensors and high video capability. BRAVO.
