When this camera was announced I, like most gearhead photographers, dismissed it as a beginner camera. Technically it is near the bottom of the brand's order, but nevertheless this camera does almost everything right. Size, features, performance and price are all noteworthy. It has its limitations but so long as it suits your needs I highly recommend this little gem. My works requires me to travel globally and I wanted a small camera to pair with small lenses. I used the 14, 20, 45, and 12-35 ...

This camera is awsome. I already had the Mk I, but the MkII is better. Greatest advantages: the 5-axis stabilization, allows you to shoot at 1/5  of a second! And of course the 2.4 MP viewfinder. My rating is based on the price nowadays, in Holland it is som 370 euros. Do you really need the Mk III, just to film in 4K? For a stills photographer, this is a truly fine camera!

Having owned this camera since October 2016, I thought it was high time I wrote something about it. I had a Sony HX90 right before it for a few months, but it was too limiting for me in terms of controls. When I got this camera, I didn't expect the amount of control I'd find in it. What drew me to it in the first place was the retro design. I never liked the bulky ugliness of DSLRs to begin with and wanted a camera that would inspire me to pick it up. I bought it secondhand on eBay, in mint ...

A little more than a year ago, I decided to have a second camera. I have had for many years SLRs and then DSLRs, and back in 2008 or so I had bought a compact digital camera as my second camera (first a Sony P73, then a Nikon P50) and the results were so disappointing that I did not even carry them with me most of the time. For a second camera, given the bad experience with compacts, I decided I needed something much better. I looked for the least expensive one that seemed to be a "real" ...

I bought this camera when it got cheap enough to buy, as an alternate to my beloved Panasonic DMC-GM5. I wanted a camera that had IBIS for those moments when my 20mm f/1.7 wasn't enough to ensure a clear picture. TL;DR it was a waste of money. The good: (1) The High-Key shooting mode results in really, really beautiful pictures with great color. (2) I love the electronic front curtain shutter mode. What a ...

I have Nikon DSLR bodies and assorted lenses but I had been after something smaller and more discreet while retaining a good level of quality for use while travelling and on days out. My main requirement with a smaller body was a viewfinder and compact size and a budget of approx £500.  After looking at various options and handling a few at The Photography Show in Birmingham, the Olympus OMD EM10 mk2 with pancake zoom was my choice. I LOVE the look and style of this body, I got the silver ...

I've always been impressed with JPEG images that come out of the Olympus cameras and when this camera was released I was intrigued. I had bought a Panasonic FZ1000 about 6 months earlier thinking the 1 inch sensor was a nice step up from the compacts. I liked what the FZ could do, but I wasn't crazy about the build quality and really didn't use all the features. JPEGs were okay, but nothing like ones from this camera. With the E-M10 MkII, I find it does a great job with exposure and the ...

The EM10 ii is such a great camera I have barely touched the GX8 since its arrival, 2-3 weeks ago. Ever since the original EM-5 I really wanted Olympus to produce a mkii which was a refinement of the EM-5 with better video and AF. First off I tried the EM-1 on it's release and for whatever reason never warmed to that camera, the size, the raw files and the video it didn't tick any of the boxes and along came the GX7 which felt like the upgrade of the EM-5 I'd been hoping for and in deed its ...

I waited long time and saved money for OM-D E-M5, but fortunately E-M10 II arrived. Camera is great, looks fantastic. Interface is very simple to use - when I performed test run of Nikon D7200, I had to read fat user manual to find most of options despite high number of hardware keys which were not very intuitive. Oly is very simple, only few knobs, few buttons, it's design is so natural, so you just pick the camera and can take good picture. Today I asked my 72yo father to take some ...
