Hey everyone, I just had to share a video that has been making its rounds on the net. Chris Eyre-Walker is a well known Olympus Photographer that has put together a video to help the promo of the E-M1.3. Olympus helped sponsor the video. Regardless, it was a two person team that filmed the whole thing with the new camera. I imagine this was primarily available light, and they were not adding a huge production behind them.
I’ve seen some really random reviews online with people saying the menus are illogical and the camera is behind in terms of tech and what it brings. Actually, the menus are very logical in my opinion…there are just a LOT of options that most people are not familiar with or accustomed to having to choose and set. Where menu items are is very straight forward I think. Also… behind in tech…Olympus?!?!?! Misinformed reviewers, or biased i guess. Bottom line, I have nothing invested in this. No one supports my site but you, and I put food on my table by creating images that sell for clients. I have access to and can use any camera system I want. I don’t pick Olympus by accident.
So for anyone wondering if the camera is good enough, check out Chris’ video. And if the latest Olympus tech is behind, or not capable… then please tell me what on Earth would a “better camera” do that would improve upon these results? I know this post sounds a little ranty…but it amazes me what I see online sometimes. Enjoy the video…
And Chris if you run by this… your work rocks and we should get together some time!
Oh and by the way…make sure to watch it full screen at the high res options. It is totally worth it.
