The Ultimate Daddy Cam – Olympus E-M1

Olympus E-M1 + 17mm f/1.8 I actually own multiple camera systems — each one has their strengths and weaknesses.

If I’m looking for casual snapshots photos of friends or walk around shots — nothing too ...

Goodbye PS4 — I like the Wii U better anyways. Oh yeah, and Fuji X100S

When I was younger, I used to love playing video games. After school, weekends, and during vacation, my friends and I would go to the local arcade and play Street Fighter 2, Strider, driving games, Moon Patrol, and others for hours! The home machines were fun, but nowheres as cool as the arcade machines. Today ...

Fuji X30 — Review

With regards to the new Fuji X30, one has to acknowledge that of course there are bigger and better cameras on the market in terms of image quality, sensor size, and optics. However, the Fuji X30 fills a niche of being a compact point and shoot with great and useable images straight out of the ...

Glazer’s Camera in Seattle — Good customer service or bad?

Glazer’s Camera is one of the last remaining camera stores in the Seattle area, they have a wonderful selection, a friendly staff, and convenient hours.

My journey to Olympus — E-M1 — My favorite mirrorless camera to date!

My main camera is a 5D Mark III, I love the quality of the images, the handling, autofocus, frames per second, and the lenses that it can utilize.

These photos were taken with the Olympus 45mm f/1.8

These photos were taken with the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 Micro Four Thirds lens. I used Lightroom to do some basic exposure adjustments and crops. Then, I exported the files to Alien Skin Exposure 5 to give them a final look. The lens is certainly does not focus as fast as the 17mm 1.8 lens, however ...

All of these were shot with the Olympus Pen E-P5.

All of these were shot with the Olympus Pen E-P5. They are the JPEGs straight out of the camera. I used the different creative modes, white balance settings, and presets when shooting to give the images a unique character. Then I transferred the images to my iPad using the cameras built in wifi module. I ...

Nikon vs Canon

I switched in January to Canon after being a long time Nikon user. The reason was I felt that the D800 was a lemon with the green screen problems and focusing issues. Even after receiving my D800 back from Nikon, it still focused poorly when compared to my previous D700. The 5D Mark III has ...
