On article Throwback Thursday: Olympus E-10 (157 comments in total)
In reply to:

TBLF: Still have mine on the shelf for nostalgia, sticky grips and all! 😎

This was my first positive experience with digital coming from a lifetime of film. Before the E10, back when kodak/fuji/nikon was showing joint venture , $10,000 dollar VGA resolution DSLR's at trade shows, I thought digital was a joke and would never threaten film.

This little camera was the first digital I picked up and thought, hey, they are catching up, and maybe they will surpass film some day. The lens is actually very very good.

I take it off the shelf every now and then and stick batteries in it just to remind myself how far we have come. This thing is pretty slow by todays standards, and man, that lcd is tiny, but it still takes a respectable small snapshot and everything works like new except for the sticky grips.

If anyone knows how to un-stick the grip I'd love to hear it. Tried 70% isopropyl alcohol which didn't do anything.

m1testit: Hi,

does anyone know if the "bike test" using C-AF + TR was made with a tripod?

As far as I know the E-M1 always had problems with the motion of the camera in C-AF + TRACKING mode because the IS cannot distinguish between a moving object and the "moving" camera.

Regards
m1testit

@m1testit: these are always taken on a tripod.

In reply to:

whumber: Two errors on the first page

1. E-M1 II only does 15 fps with mechanical shutter when the AF and AE are locked. It does 10 fps with AE/AF just like the D500. Maybe not an error per se, but misleading. Also, the E-M1 does 9 fps with mechanical shutter with AF-C, 6.5 fps with EFCS and AF-C.

2. Effective magnification for the E-M1 & E-M1II EVF is 0.74x, not 0.65x.

Thanks for the correction. Where are you seeing the 9 fps number for the E-M1? I can't seem to find it in any official documentation.

Thanks,
Jeff

RadPhoto: "Not only is the battery capacity increased by 37% (and CIPA rating has jumped from 350 to 440 shots from the E-M1 to the E-M1 II), but the new charger will recharge the battery in 50% less time as well."

Sony? Are you listening?

It's a MUCH larger battery. Not sure it would fit in anything in Sony's current line-up, save for the a99 II.

FuhTeng: I'm looking forward to the D500 to EM1 II comparison tests. And comparing the EM1 II to the XT2 and GH5 and a6500, but mainly, the D500 versus EM1 II.

@FuhTeng, you saw this I assume:

Fun 4 all: From examples I've seen rolling shutter is near non-existent. I look forward to more tests on this. With no noticeable rolling shutter under most circumstances, the 18 FPS and 60 FPS become viable tools.
The pro capture option is something I've dreamed about for years. With my DSLRs I was never quite fast enough to capture the exact moment I wanted.

I don't get the jealous trolling here. I've been a big fan of the challenges in this forum and seen this 'smaller' sensor beat out larger ones many times. I've seen the 1 inch sensors win too.
My guess is some people are upset and jealous that this camera does things theirs cannot. I'll settle for a little more noise and less DR, vs. no picture at all. :)

We've seen some rolling shutter at 60 fps but not any slower. We'll have an example or two in the review later this week.

wolfie: Still unable to arrange any sort of C-AF sequence test after all this time?

This is a gallery, not a review. Trust me when I say we're working hard on the review, and it will be posted as soon as possible.

In reply to:

mujana: Small mistake in the "title" / first sentence between the headlines of the Fuji X-T2. It's not a 16,3 MP sensor, I pressume (but 24MP as it says correctly later on).

Fixed, thanks.

Hi all, we got ahold of a beta of ACR and I reconverted the Raw images that were in the gallery with it. There's definitely a big improvement over in-camera and Olympus Viewer 3. Thanks for your patience.

Link | Posted on Nov 7, 2016 at 01:27 UTC as 4th comment

Hi all, Olympus Viewer 3 arrived today so I've reprocessed a few of the Raws, including the horse image above. Once we get ACR support I will go through them again.

jonf123: That is a very uninspiring photo gallery to show off the camera. I was in Iceland back in mid-September and got far better shots with an 80D. And I'm basically nothing more than a good amateur. I don't know if I can blame the photographer or the camera for this one. $2000 for this is crazy though.

pkvman13 is correct. I wasn't about to jump a barb-wire fence to get closer.

In reply to:

Searching: Not a very good review IMHO. Read Ming Thien's review to get a better sense of the camera.

As ASINMT said, this is not a review. One is coming, I promise.

ThatCamFan: Images 15, 20 & 22 Are giant NO NOS! Just like standing on train tracks. People trying to get photos there have lost they're life, in fact MANY have lost they're life in those locations because they are to close to the beach, this is the most DANGEROUS place on EARTH for Freak Waves. You were completely irresponsible!

They have lots of signs and there's a "security" guy on the beach. Still, he had to whistle away some people making incredibly poor decisions. Never turn your back on the ocean!

CheersUK: Camera advertised as the next big thing in sport and action photography showed off at a landscaoe photographers wet dream event. Anybody else think thats strange? Dont be surprised if the AF ends up not living up to the hype.

@Greg we were going to go whale watching but had to cancel due to the weather. That was really the only opportunity for action. The only birds I saw were these small pigeon-like things that didn't fly terribly far.

A bunch of us on the trip were discussing that first thing you mentioned while sitting in the airport.

TFD: Really is there no current news. I have a box full of old camera available for review.

If you are going to review old cameras lets dig up the worst of the bunch - there would be a lot to chose from and lets remind ourselves how much we paid in 1990 dollars for them,

Suggestions for other cameras are appreciated!

Yake: Maybe Leica can rebrand and reissue this?

This was a 99 cent pickup from eBay.... i'm surprised that it even worked!

creaDVty: One more question Jeff: do you know if the SC has USB livestreaming (which the Theta S had)? Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

No live-streaming on the SC.
