  • Created user reviews Oly TG850 ultra wide is unique.
    Fantastic selfie camera. I am the family picture taker and rarely appear in any photos. With this camera, I can include the whole family and myself in a selfie with no tripod or stranger involved. ...
  • Years ago when Olympus first came out with 4/3 dslr, I posted that it will die since it had no compelling reason to exist with no size advantage to APS-C and smaller sensor. I was kicked off the...

  • Replied in A7/r or A99?
    You are doing fine if you already own the A99. There is no need to consider getting the A7/r unless you really need the 36 mp of the 7r for stills. I personally will not consider the e-mount bodies ...
