We all have waited for the upgrade to Olympus E-M5 MKII. The wait is over the Olympus OM-D E-M5 MKIII is here. It was just announced. I have had the possibility to test it for a week. In the video below you can see my first impression of the new Olympus OM-D E-M5 MKIII camera.
Macro photography is an exciting genre. It can open up a whole new world. It is very fascinating to see things that are hard to see with the naked eye. Olympus has a very good lens for macro photography, Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm f2.8 macro.
Olympus also has another macro lens, the M.Zuiko 30mm f3.5 lens. I have made a video about that lens in December 2018.
Olympus has great apps to help your photography. OI.Share is for transferring images from your Olympus camera to your mobile device.
OI.Track is an app that can track your location and that data can be transferred to your files that in the memory card.
OI.Palette is for image editing.
In the video below I show those apps work.
It was five years ago when I took all my Canon gear to the local camera store here in Helsinki. In this video I will tell why and what I think now.
I did not have to rely only on my memory. I had a blog post about that day and about the switch.
Threre are situations when .jpg is sometimes a very good option. In my todays video I will talk about jpg and how to get the settings right.
To know your camera is very important. Most Olympus cameras have tons of features that most us do not even know or consider using. In my video about Olympus OM-D E-M10 MKII i give you 5 useful tips and tricks you can use to game up your creativity.
A Nifty-Fifty is a very versdatile lens and I always recommend to get one. In the video I will tell how I have used it and for what kinda of photograhy.
I have also a video about the Standard lens in general.
I said in the video that the price is around 350,-, but it seems that you can get it a lot cheaper.
I have been testing the Olympus Digital teleconverter lately. It can double your focal length on your M.Zuiko lens. That why it is very tempting. Wouldn’ t it be great to have extra reach on you trips if travelling only with one lens?
But since it is a digital teleconvetert, it will upscale the cropped image you see from the EVF or the LCD. How bad is the loss in image quality?
Check out this video and the images below to see for yourself.
As you can see the difference is not big, but the upscaled raw-filer is a bit better.
This blog post is done together with the video that is embeded below.
Here are all the settings that was mentioned in the video.
The first setting of the Basic Settings is the ability to toggle the info about the Menu item:
Here were the Best Settings for Olympus OM-D E-M1 MKIII. Be sure to watch the video. There are more explanations and some extra tips about the settings.
In my latest video (14.5.2019) I was talking about the experience that I have had with the E-M1 X now that I have used it for a couple of months.
I promised to write down the best settings for exposure.
Menu D1 > InfoSettings > LV-Info and in one of the Custom setting choose Highlight&Shadow
Menu I > Info Settings > in one of the Custom setting choose Highlight&Shadow
Shooting Menu 1 > Picture Mode > Muted > Contrast -2, Saturation -2
Menu G > Keep Warm Color > Off
Menu G > Color Space > AdobeRGB
Menu D3 > Histogram Settings > Set Highlight to the value you want the red color to appear and the same goes with the Shadow (blue color) I have set Hightlight to 253 and Shadow to 3.
Menu B1 > Dial Function > Set on each exposure modes the back dial to exposure compensation.
These settings will show the image on the LCD and EVF so that it is perfectly exposured when adjusting the exposure compensatuion so that there is no red or blue flag color in the scene. Usually you can have a half a stop brighter becouse the image that shows in the jpg and the final image is a raw-file.
