**** This Week Through Your m43 (2/4/12) ****
M43 Defenders of the Mirrorless Universe
Alas, the EM5 was announced, and Oly nation rejoiced... well not entirely. Sure it's a great camera, but there are rumors that it's "just" the same basic sensor as the G3, and that the hump is only useful for storing snacks. Or is it? Buried deep in the EM5 user's manual, however lies the true intentions of the Oly designers. The EM5 is a modular camera for a very special reason. If you purchase Oly accessories in just the right color combination (Black, Red, Green, Yellow, and Blue), and combine them in the right way with the OlyVoly Pal on that large hump, your EM5 turns into the mighty VOLYTRON. Sure the sensor might be similar to the G3, but you can cut down NEX DPR Forum Trolls to size by forming blazing sword!
And thus, the mystery of the oversized hump is solved. Weather-sealed slicing power at the push of a button is so convenient.

Volytron, hmmm. Sounds interesting.
Meanwhile, making do with the G2 and a kit lens:
Playing around with a cardboard snoot and a Canon FD 50mm 1.8:
It rained all week. So I did an experiment indoors instead. As I was processing these, I realize there were a lot of things that can be more refined. And I think I need to take the flash off camera for better results. C&C Welcome!
Very nice. But I think the scene would benefit from a wider angle? Perhaps crop off the bright part of the top of the sky; I think that shall bring out the atmosphere even more.
Love the lighting.
Although comp of the first is more interesting than the 2nd, the land is sharper in the 2nd and I think I prefer it for that.
This is a great photograph - one of your more successful forays into the world of lighting.
Is it you? Got a touch of the Dustin Hoffman thing going on...
Very nice - never atempted anything like these and they always fascinate me.
a breath of fresh air. Prefer the 2nd and 3rd, very David Lynch.
Here a few shots from my walk in the morning. At the parking it was -15C, at top of the small mountain certainly much less. Definetely to cold to stay there longer
The G2 and its batteries do very well in such conditions. I expected to get frozen fingers quickly but despite wearing quite thin gloves i could shoot for about one hour. In the cold a plastic body is a huge advantage over a metal one.
Fun stuff! What was the setup? How did you manage the colors?
More good stuff. The first one is my favorite; I like the juxtoposition of the symmetrical composition with the asymmetrical stance of the man.
Hi all! It;s cold at this part of our world

These were from our first trip with the G3, to Walt Disney World. We have carried Canon dSLRs for 10 years and wanted to reduce the size and weight, we are impressed with micro 4/3!
