a little bit of everything…


Olympus Pen EPL2

GF1 vs GF2 High ISO comparison (Dpreview forum).

Olympus E-5 review (Photoradar).

OLYMPUS Viewer 2 Update for Windows (Olympus.co.jp).

Olympus XZ-1 – sample photos and videos (Lenstip).

How engineering can triumph over marketing, a solution (EosHD).

  • That E5 review is far from enthusiastic…but it does reflect my own ambivalent feelings towards this overpriced beast. As an E620 / EPL1 user, I’ve not really seen anything from Oly to persuade me to upgrade. Though I’m hopeful for a pro-spec EP3 sometime soon, it’ll have to be something special for me to invest yet more money.

    Seems that Pannay started toying with point of black too.

    Sadly will never happen. And I’m kind of happy that Fuji’s X100 sticks with the 12MP sensor. 8MP would have being perfect. One can dream.

    Recommend turning the volume off on that E-PL2 video.

      Depends on music taste, for me.. AC/DC – Thunderstruck is very good choice of music. :D And that guy should get medal from Olympus for at least first half of that video. :) (maybe that music have something to do with that..)

    The PhotoRadar reviewer Angela is obviously a Canikon user, and clearly will not be changing anytime soon. She also thinks that taking a few dark pictures represents good samples for the E-5. Her review was way too biased and very, very lazy.

    I could have produced a better review in an hour or two. I give her review a 1/10. She sucks!

    Have to agree with Boss here, it’s a bit of a non review with very little detail and I suspect time spent on it. All the usual suspects in terms of sensor size, usability (well use the camera for a while and really find out) and MP. Well here’s one Oly user who has upgraded to the E5 and I’m not disappointed, it’s superb and a worthy upgrade. Paul

      The E-5 is awesome and I cannot wait to get it…. Yes I like Nikon Full-Frame too, but those are much more expensive, and hardly necessary unless you are printing. As of right now, I publish everything online only….so the E-5 is more than sufficient.

    What did they do to bring out the contrast in the sky like that? Is this metering, art setting, or post processing?
