Icicle image taken with OMD E-M1


Icicle
This image taken with an Olympus OMD E-M1 and a Canon 50mm FD Marco lens wide open at f3.5.  Focus peeking turned out to work with a manual lens and proved very useful.

Snow Fall from the front Door


A great snowy day outside. I'm under the weather so this was as close as I got to the snow...
Taken using the Panasonic GH2, 12-40 Olympus F2.8 lens at F4.5 and 40mm. I've printed this large (24") and the Olympus glass is just amazing. Its definitely a future go to lens for me.

Simplicity in camera UI article

The above essay by Mark Dubovoy is well said. I'm wondering why my new OMD M1 cannot be configured easily the way I want it via a computer program. I'm thinking the Olympus image share program should allow me to reconfigure the camera via some easy purpose driven dialogs and defaults.
