Eric:I made Chrome camera profiles based on Fuji’s Classic Chrome film emulation. I made them for many Olympus and Panasonic cameras. You can find information here: http://www.mirrorlessjourney.com/blog/2015/1/chrome-camera-profile-for-micro-43

Juha:This is a little Shortfilm i shot for Greenpeace last year – which i wanted to share with you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfagSc-9PAU. The entire movie was shot on a Gh4 in 1080p, 25 fps and 200mbps with the
12-35 2.8. Especially at the beginning of the movie, was it very early in the morning and very dark, the first scenes where shot with ISO 6400 and 3200th. Later when it got brighter had to use a Vari ND filter to keep the Lens at a decent stop. For the sound i used a Sennheiser EW 112 G3 -P with Lavalier Microphone dierekt recorded incamera. The Film was edited in Premiere Pro CS6.

Raising star fashion photographer Martyna Galla uses the E-M10/E-M5 for most of her work.


Format.com – Online Portfolio – Martyna Galla

With only 22 years Martyna Galla is one of the raising fashion photography stars. You can read a full article about here at PDNpulse. The for us cool news is that she mostly uses the E-M10 and E-M5 for her work. Quite unusual if you think that kind of world is mostly dominated by digital medium format backs. This once again confirms that nowadays the quality of small sensor cameras like MFT and APS-C are goo enough for top quality work. And what likely matters most are your artistic skills and the right tools to express it.
