On article Design, looks and desire: Olympus does it again (396 comments in total)

Looks good. However I wish they made it just as plain and simple as the original one. The front looks cool but to and back is way to cluttered which kinda takes away from the sleek good looks of the front.
I could do with just touchscreen and couple buttons.
But overall great job Olympus.

In reply to:

mais51: The D5 - D500 pair is the repeat of the D3 - D300 pair of the past
now we are waiting for the new version of the D700 - the D5 sans hand grip.

Sorry D810/D750/D610 users your cameras is just about being superseded.

As a current D800 user I am eagerly awaiting the next D8xx/D900 upgrade

I love my d750. Best overall camera ive ever had. ( size, mp, iso performance, dr etc...)
Only thing that is really appealing is the auto lens AF tune. That id love to have and use ( for lenses like 24 1.4G )

Too bad the 24 and 35 1.4s arent on sale. I would have bought one most likely .

No wonder when their mirrorless cameras suck. :/
And if they had sensors and good as they have lenses and priced the cameras right they would dominate the market. But just like Nikon they hardly innovate unlike sony and fuji and olympus.

I wish they made a camera for photographers... i for one dont give a flying f..k if it has 4k or not. It should have at least df 16mo sensor or 18 to 20 mp with excellent dynamic range and high iso. 12 mp is really low for 3k camera. A7ii is blah and a7rii is ok but most ppl dont need 42 damn mp and would gladly trade mp for better iso performance or dynamic range.

akjos: At this point... who cares really. I bought original M with 18-55 and 22 and it turned out to be the biggest photo gear mistake i ever made. Camera had been sitting in the drawer over a year after i only used it twice. Should have sold it long time ago.
The canon files just fall apart way to quickly compared to nikon and sony. Plus very bad dynamic range.
and considering you can get a6000 for less or even mint used A7 for about same... that will be hard to sell , canon.

I have had and used many cameras. Canon files are bar none the worst as far as holding up to any post processing.
Im not saying its a bad camera... if one wants to shoot jpgs ale leave them as they come out of camera, that is fine. Otherwise no thanks.
I had nex 5n in the past and that was much nicer also have sony rx100 (1) and J5 now. Not even comparing it to dslrs.
But it is a bargain for what is its now ( the first one) Only thing i like a lot about the M was the 22mm pancake. That was awesome little lens.
Yea... i probably dont know how to use the camera. oh well.
LOL

Well that would be prettty cool... sometimes focus is just a hair off like slightly misfocused eyes ruining otherwise perfect photo. Exciting times...

This REALLY takes the magic out of actual photography... Im sure Im not the only one feeling this way .
Capturing perfect photo in perfect moment - that is real photography one can be proud of if getting THE shot.
This....This is bs...5 yo can push a button a thats it .

In reply to:

Activatedfx: I like Snapseed, but the biggest Con for me is that there is no way to save custom "presets". Every photo has to be processed from scratch.

Yes forgot that... Together with undo and zoom.

In reply to:

photo perzon: I was able to use it right away. It is simple and easy. I tried Aperture. Photoshop, Lightroom and could not get the hang of them. Snapseed gives you zone control that is easy.

Photoshop , i understand . Took me weeks to learn even the basics. Aperture can be little confusing , but lightroom ?? Cmon man take few minutes to watch some great turorials by Matt Kloskowski and youll see how really simple it is. I hardly participated in forums lately but as i remember ... Id you spend SO much money and effort trying just about every cam out there you should really stop and focus some of that on mastering photo editing. It makes a huge difference! Just a thought...

I use it as main editing ap on iphone . For what it is its awesome. I used every nik product with photoshop when i had pro gear and time for real photography. Now i dont have neither so im always on the road and every now abd then snap away with iphone. I wish the added just a little more features like better vignette control tint feature to wb tool , and more options to selective adjusting points like expanded option for separate colors ,sharpening and structure adjustment. But still , dont hesitate to get it for either platform you wont be disappointed.

akjos: Wow, its all nice , BUT, STILL no usb or sd card slot?? really? Im on the road ALL the time and despite what cell phone service providers make you believe , in LOT of places i have very questionable mobile internet connection, unless im close to bigger cities... I used mb pro 13" for 10 months now every day, mostly for email, skype, browsing, occasional photoshop and especially watching movies to kill some time.... With inability to connect external 1 TB HD or at least being able to pop in high capacity SD card, its pretty much useless to me. I waited and waited and hoped apple would listen and at least gave up SOME on extremely proprietary solution giving us at least darn usb port. I guess its too much to ask for. Im almost kind of happy to soon ditch my MBpro ( always a pc user anyways ) and firing up a loaded 17" asus ROG beast. WHile i enjoyed extensive time with my MBpro ,dont think ill miss apple much ...

Camera kit does exactly that, connects a CAMERA . While there might me some external HD's that this kit will read , it doesnt support it natively , and therefore it will always have questionable reliability if one gets it to work at all. I dont really have time and money to deal with something as stupid as plain old ubs port support is... If someone in retail store actually showed me it works , id be interested, otherwise, im not playing beta tester for apple.
