On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II First Impressions Review preview (1287 comments in total)
In reply to:

prossi: Finally a paintbrush and sponge static sample wedge that that can compete the apsc and ff from sony and nikon! It was getting depressing listening to all the praise of 4/3 cameras and be confronted with such crappy IQ for landscaping.

Probably Jay Dickman is a fool to do his paid work for NatGeo with an Olympus E-M1, and NatGeo is full of morons to pay and publish him. The same for guys like Damian McGillicuddy, Alexander Hahn, Shaun King, Vittore Buzzi, Kirk Tuck, Robin Wong, Mathieu Gasquet... but hey, what can THEY understand?Probably W5JCK has his fingers on the REAL PULSE of the PROFESSIONAL COMMERCIAL WORLD nowadays...

Raist3d: Any word if the camera sensor has an AA filter or not?

You clearly live in your own fantasy world... "Cannot compete with aps-c". They have ALREADY slayed aps-c in every seriuos camera shop that is not Walmart :)

VENTURE-STAR: This just seems to be another compact digital SLR with a hint of styling borrowed from the OM-1 film camera of the 70s. Can't say I'm blown away by the OM-D. It's certainly too expensive at the current suggested price.

You are paying just for what you are getting. Same story with the E-M1, it is comparable in price with the 7D, but offers a very valid alternative to it - it is why the resident couple of wedding photographers have preferred the E-M1 to their 7D for their paid gigs.

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1405 comments in total)
In reply to:

wsalopek: Full frame is, generally speaking, for ONE thing...best low-light / hi-iso / sports performance, (and to a lesser extent, for max subject isolation (but there are work-arounds for smaller sensors to achieve much the same isolation)).

If a person doesn't need that, then APS-C or MFT, or even smaller-sized sensors, do FANTASTIC, and at the same time, you almost certainly spend less money, and have much smaller/lighter hardware to haul around, which is HUGE in getting the picture you want, as the best camera is the one you have WITH you.

Really. If you want to take a shot under torrential rain, or in a -10 Celsius degree environment... buy an Olympus E-M1. It has characteristics undreamt by many so-called "weather proof" full frame cameras... ;)

In reply to:

Russell Fulks: Having just shot a tennis tournament, I am extremely grateful for the high-ISO performance of my full frame camera. Even in a pro tournament the lighting at night required shooting at ISO 3200+ with f2.8 glass. If I tried that on even the best of the "crop" sensors I would have been shooting at higher ISO to achieve the same exposure and would have had significantly more noise.
This is true for anyone who has kids playing indoor sports or night sports, not just the pros. If you want to take clean stop-action pictures you need to be able to shoot at "reasonable" ISO's and high shutter speeds with fast glass.

Well said. Moreover, a smaller sensor has greater depth of field at a given aperture, so to have more action in focus you have to stop down less, resulting in better image quality if you shoot at lower ISO...

Very helpful advice - I have my OM-D since yesterday, this guide helps a lot.

@BitFarmer: I currently use RawDroid (free app) to connect my camera to the tablet with USB cable and import .raw files.

99ISO: What' the point of a camera with the size and price of a DSLR and the sensor of a compact?

Probably he hasn't even looked at the article and accompaining photos, just looked at the main title and dismissed this "non-pro" camera... ;)

For astounding IQ at low iso.

caver3d: The camera is for real photographers not "flavor of the month" techno-babblers like you. If you have ever used a Foveon-based camera you'd understand.

If you call you a "photog", I doubt very much you are nothing but a poseur.

chadley_chad: For fooks sake, what next, screens in toasters!

As much as I love my gadgets, the last thing I want to see is the convergence of a PDA/phone and a camera! All this will do is give us less functionality and ease of use, wrapped up in fancy packaging with 9" screens!!!

It's bad enough the NEX now having chargeable apps to download ... As I said, WTF next!

I don't understand why this annoys you.

1shot: Yea, now I can buy a camera that crashes and freezes at the most inopportune times and just generally sucks.

Dumb Nikon sheep!

@1Shot: You clearly have not the slightest idea of how much advanced Android OS is.

jj74e: well the merge of phone and compacts is finally happening this year.

too bad they still will have to rely on being at a wireless hotspot, will have much worse battery life than most phones (140 shots on this one? I don't know how that translates to call time, but I'm guessing your camera won't last very long if you're shooting, editing, downloading and playing games on it).

Honestly, I don't think going Android is the answer. It's nice to see companies finally doing something to try to revive the compact market (instead of perpetually adding on more crappy scene modes and zoom), but honestly, people have their phones on them all the time now. You don't need the whole Android market on your camera. You just need to develop a UI that offers customization, connectivity, and photo-centric abilities. Why don't camera companies develop these themselves?

Make the camera more personal, more open, and quick-edit capable/fun; don't try to make it a clunkycell

But at least Google is happy ;)

More personal and open? Enter the 21st century: last month I've downloaded a free Android app in beta stage, Akooma, that with a simple graphic interface let me program simple "if-then" application.
In five minutes I created an app that, as soon as I am in range of my home wifi spot, it uploads the images I took with my Galaxy S3 in a backup folder of my PC.
Wait for the "other OS" to let you do that... ;)

It's simply the new Canon marketing gimmick that has totally failed.
Interesting how this stirred the usual fanboy negationism, tough.

I ask forgiveness to anyone that feels offended by my non-politically correct comments,
GO GO GO TEAM PILGRAMERS!
...even if you are a constructed marketing stunt by Facebook, that has currently lost over 50% of its share value...
:P

binauralbeats: I'll take a creative shot made with instagram over a boring one shot with a megabuck-highspec camera anyday.

Lucky to find one, as they are submerged by hundred of thousands of pictures of spagetti-with-sauce processed with sepia filter and labelled "Eating Old School LOLZ" or Lomo-ized cat pictures with "Can I haz cheese pls" captions.
The prob with that app is that's become land of "spray-and-pray" with no content whatsoever...

tomhide: Wow, what's up with people getting miffed about this article.
I just watched the first clip "Pilgramers - Episode 1 (Official)" and saw whole bunch of people who are into photography getting together enjoying themselvs. And probably learning much more about photography then reading articles online whilst at it.

Two quotes sprung to mind after reading the article and some of the comments.

"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs" - Ansel Adams
"Haters always gonna hate" - My workmate who is many years younger.

Well, it's interesting that any time you express an opinion not aligned with the current sheep flock, you are labelled as "hater".
At least, in the good old times you were labeled as a "rebel"...
BTW, its true there are only good photographers, but if they churns out bad photographs... And boy, the majority of Instagrams are REALLY bad...

69chevy: These people are ruining the world.

First, they are changing out of their sweatpants, and leaving their houses.

Next, they are taking photographs with no regards for ISO, noise, or DR.

Then they have the nerve to go meet other people... in person!!

They should stay put, and stop enjoying themselves.

Their Insta-crap is ruining my fun of sitting home on a photography forum talking trash about cameras I don't know how to use.

BTW: if they need Instagram for finally changing their sweatpants, going out of home and interacting with real people... well, this goes a long way saying what type of people uses that apps... ;)
