Olympus Presentation @ The Photography Show 2014

Olympus Presentation @ The Photography Show 2014

I gave a presentation for Olympus at TPS in Birmingham on my experiences over the years with different cameras and how I came to find and use the OMD EM1. Below are a selection of images made on several different cameras: Nikons, Hasselblads, Leica, the Panasonic GF1, Voightlanders, 5×4, Mamiya’s and the OMD EM5 and […]

EM1 in Iceland & Morroco

EM1 in Iceland & Morroco

Happy New Year. I think this is the last official day we can say that. I’ve been to Iceland with three EM5’s and most recently an EM1. Then I took the EM1 to Morocco.Here are a few images from that trip. I find the EM1’s handling to be much improved both from a button/dial and […]

Olympus 75mm F1.8 Lens Tests with RAWs

Olympus 75mm F1.8 Lens Tests with RAWs

Last week I was given access to use the final production copy of the new Olympus 75mm M.Zuiko Digital f/1.8 lens. That’s a 35mm format equivalent of 150mm. I currently use a 45mm lens (90mm) which is absolutely satisfactory for portraiture. I was completely happy with it until I shot the 75mm. This lens has […]

Olympus OM-D EM-5 and FUJI X-Pro1

Olympus OM-D EM-5 and FUJI X-Pro1

My last day at Focus I decided that I needed to see what the files produced by a Fuji X-Pro1 and the OM-D looked like side by side. I knew how each camera handled, but what kind of a picture would they produce in the end? Would I be happy with one more than the […]

Olympus OM-D EM-5 UK Test

I just finished my first talk at the Olympus stand at the NEC in Birmingham and it went relatively well. I was recalling my experience and impressions with the new OM-D EM-5 camera. We had some monitor issues on stage so as promised here is all of what I presented and will be presenting again […]

Olympus OMD EM-5 – In Brief
Olympus OMD EM-5 - In Brief

Last week I was given an Olympus OMD EM-5 to test out. I only had a couple of hours with it, believe me as soon as it went into my hands, I knew was going to be too little. But as there are only 2 of these in the country I couldn’t really protest its […]

Your Way Right Away
Your Way Right Away

On the way to Poole near Bournemouth I snapped this lady and her dog. Then fireworks on Poole Beach. I do love fireworks. I love  the Macy’s display on the Fourth of July in New York City.
