Birds in flight with the OM-1 and Procapture

Mike writes:

This week we are looking at the Procapture feature of the OM-1 for birds in flight. It is a fantastic feature that allows you to despress the shutter release button after the event has happened, but still get the shot.
I am always looking for the opportunity to use it. I photograph Blue, Great and Long-tailed tits as well as Goldfinch, Greenfinch and Nuthatch in flight.

Panasonic Leica 8-18mm f2.8-4 Long Term Review by Gary W

Gary writes:

Today I am sharing my long term review of my favorite Micro Four Thirds wide angle lens, the Panasonic Leica 8-18mm f2.8-4. I bought this lens 1 year ago and has been using this lens extensively during my recent trip to New Zealand for landscape photography, environmental portrait, and for travel photography. This lens was quite fantastic, and in this video I shared what I think are the strengths and weaknesses of this lens, also some other lens that you should also consider if you are looking for an ultra wide angle lens for your Micro Four Thirds system.

OM 40-150mm F/4 PRO Lens Review by ePhotozine: Highly Recommended!

ePhotozine tested the 40-150mm lens and concluded:

One of the really good things about the MFT system is that we do get lighter, more compact cameras and lenses and this is a real boon for those who travel and to be honest, all of us who do walk and explore places. The potential of compact cameras/lenses can be lost somewhat if either of those is still bulky, and some mirrorless lenses do fall into that trap. Not OM System though, and lenses such as this new 40-150mm f/4 are as compact and lightweight as the cameras that go with them. So for travel, wildlife, architecture, portraiture, fashion and many other subjects, the new lens is pitched perfectly. The cost is on the higher side until such time as offers come along, but the lens can justify that and in isolation looking at the price it is still within boundaries that could be described as affordable. Affordable is a fluid concept of course, but it is measured here in hundreds rather than the thousands that some optics demand.

Overall, the OM System M.Zuiko 40-150mm f/4 PRO lens can be ‘Highly Recommended’.

OM-1 review by Ken Rockwell: “I’m impressed”

OM-1 at BHphoto, Adorama, Amazon. GetOlympus. Calumet DE. Fotokoch DE. Wex UK. Olympus DE, Olympus UK, Olympus FR, Olympus IT, Olympus ES. Olympus NL. Olympus BE. Olympus AT. Olympus CH.

Ken Rockwell tested the OM-1 and concluded:

For nature and landscapes it all comes down to which brand gets the color rendition you prefer. I love what I get from my Nikons and Canons, and prefer the OM-1 to my Sonys and Fujis. This is art and we all have very different tastes. The OM-1 has by far the best built-in stabilization I’ve ever used, and with its greater depth of field and base ISO of 200 lets me get cleaner shots with more in focus than my larger format cameras hand-held!

God has spoken and he loves the OM-1 :)

It’s been a couple of years since the announcement and I am super excited to be invited to have a play on the first Artificial Intelligence Powered Micro Four Thirds camera, gunning for content creators. It’s still at beta phase but I’ve got to play around for a bit, join me and see for yourself and stay tuned as more will come in the near future!
