Budget Camera Review — $155 Olympus E-P3 and 17mm f/1.8

$155? Yup. How? Craigslist of course! I’m always on the hunt for a good deal with regards to photography gear. Once or twice a year, I get a good deal, play with the equipment, and then sell it. Sometimes I make money, sometimes I lose, sometimes I get taken. There have been a few deals ...

Using an Olympus 17mm f/1.8 on a Panasonic GX8

Using an Olympus 17mm f/1.8 on a Panasonic GX8 You’ll probably laugh, but I’ve actually bought and sold the Olympus 17mm f/1.8 a few times in the past. Why?

However, point and shoots, mirrorless cameras, and cell phones are a more convenient way of running and gunning than having to carefully compose each shot, adjust the ...

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 ...
