    Olympus to exit, or at least scale back, from the digital camera market?

    Well, here's something unexpected... Olympus might be looking at either exiting entirely or at least scaling back from the digital camera market. This follows the news that investor Robert Hale has been added to the board of directors. The move from China to Vietnam for their camera...

    The best camera for street photography?

    I formulated some time ago that after using some Fujifilms X100T + XT1, Leica Q, and Olympus PEN-F*, the ultimate camera or camera system for an enthusiast street photographer is the Fujifilm. I feel terrible about making this conclusion without having tested the very strong contenders, the...

    Film Salvaged some shots...

    I had a roll of Kentmere 100 in a camera with a few shots, I then naively rewound the roll and put into the Olympus MjuII, thought I had wound on there to the first available frame. Well, it obviously didn't work! The lab processed it but wrote a note that all of the frames were overlapped. I...

    Olympus 5 Mark II + Oly 40-150 f/2.8

    I have now an Olympus 5 Mark II which I use with a couple of lenses. Lenses from Panasonic, Panasonic/Leica, Olympus and Nikon F (1974) are used. My Canon equipment is being gradually being sold. The Oly 40-150 f/2.8 was received a couple of days ago. It is a very good lens. I like the photos to...

    Olympus TG-5 - Macro capabilities?

    Curious if anyone has had experience shooting macro with the Olympus TG-5 'Tough' compact camera? I miss the outstanding macro from my ancient LX7 (one of the nicer things about that camera) - and from what I hear, the TG-5 has a microscope mode which focuses down as close as something like 1...

    A camera to compare with (and better) Samsung S8 phone

    Hello all, With friends around me snapping away with their S8 (and even as far back as S4) phone cameras, I am often left with that Gah! taste in my mouth when I see how well their shots turn out. I don't really want a fabulous smartphone camera, as it would be too easy to stop carrying my...

    Film A grip for the Olympus OM1

    Just getting into film photography, so I got myself a lovely OM1 (oh what a lovely camera), but I am so used to having grips on my Pen F and EM5II, I miss one on the OM1. Does anyone know of a grip for it please? I have Googled but nothing, and on Ebay I see the motor winders but they look so...

    Film Olympus PEN FT

    I'm opening a new thread because I used the internal lightmeter - for better or for worse ... travel portraiture on Flickr passing by on Flickr (no, no photobomb, I wanted him in the frame, just fired off the shot a little early ...) I learned a lot from reviewing the whole film for...

    Thwarted astro attempt

    I went out yesterday evening fully togged up with tripod, woolly hat and torch, as it had been gloriously clear and starry at 6pm. By 8 it was clouding over, but I managed a reasonable shot of the clear bit of sky with clouds lit by the moon. I had to torture the RAW file but at least it was...

    Portraits are perhaps not my strong suit...

    A friend of mine needed some publicity shots for her new book, so I grabbed the GX7 and the Oly 25/45/75 lenses and headed into downtown Seattle on what could easily be described as the crappiest day of weather I've seen in years. Cold, rainy, windy. Ugh. Anyway, we shot a bit in the massive...
