pleytime: The Rapid Black strap seems much better than this one. It's more flexible and you don't have to wriggle your hand into it as you would have to with this and other camera straps. I have the Rapid Black attached at the side of my OM-D5 instead of at the tripod connector.

How did you attach it? It's a screw mount.

I don't see how this Slide makes the camera any stabler than my Black Rapid. Am I missing something? Because it's attached at two points?

Overpriced and over-hyped.

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 First Impressions Review preview (622 comments in total)

Is it a typo? How can the OMD-5 and OMD M1 be listed as SLR-style mirrorless cameras and this new OM10 as a rangefinder-style mirrorless? Check the specs.

Nice pics. Warm and dreamy. Some of the backgrounds look almost as if they are backdrops.

I used to shoot animal portraits. The one with the profile of a cat had to be pasted in. Murphy's Law has a field day with cats vs. photographers.

Gosh, I don't think it looks all that bad. Kind of a NEX-7 on steroids.

Do you need a degree in Applied Physics before you can purchase one?

On Photokina 2012: Olympus Stand Report article (48 comments in total)
In reply to:

rponiarski: My concern is a successor to the E-P3. I have an E-P2 and skipped the P3 as it isn't that big an upgrade. I was hoping for an E-P5, with the OMD sensor in a higher end PEN body. The E-PL5 is nice, but I like the handling of the E-P series, with multiple control dials and a hefty, quality feel to it. Maybe at CES...

My concern too, especially since they finally included a built-in flash with the EP3 (I have an EP2).

This is a really hideous looking camera. Whose hands is this model designed for, a Close Encounter alien's?

If you're that rich, why not buy all three?

On Just Posted: Olympus OM-D E-M5 test samples article (458 comments in total)

For some reason there seems to be an overload when these samples are first posted. As i mentioned below, I can't load them, they won't come out on my screen. refreshing the browser is futile. And as someone else pointed out, this has happened before. It takes a good two days before everyone can gain access to the samples.

My PC won't bring up the samples, won't load them. Anybody else having this problem?

On Pentax announces K-01 K-mount APS-C mirrorless camera article (875 comments in total)

No VF? Thumbs down. Design? Same deal. Looks like something rolled off a Soviet clone assembly line. I haven't seen an uglier camera in years. Sad, too, because I like the ergonomics of Pentax's DSLR's.

People getting married have no qualms shelling a lot of money out for limos and flowers, but they immediately moan and complain when they look at prices for a wedding photographer. It’s actually amusing. As the years pass there will ne no limo, no flowers, but the photos will be there as loving testimony to the event.
