Olympus Apps

Controlling your Olympus camera with your phone is quite easy. Olympus has a great app for that, OI.Share App. With OI.Share App you can use your phone as a shutter button, see the image on your phones screen while making images. You can also transfer jpg-images from Olympus cameras to your phone and share them to social media.

You can also Geo Tag images with your Olympus camera also quite easy. Geo Tagging images makes finding images later a much easier task. OI.Track app can track your route and the GPS-coordinates can be easily attached to your files metadata. OI.Track adds GPS coordinates to your images. Lightroom can read that data and place your photograph on a map.

Olympus M.Zuiko 300mm F4.0 kokeilussa

Pääsin aika tuoreeltaan testaamaan Olympuksen M.Zuiko 300mm F4.0 objektiivia. Se on kinovastaavuudeltaan 600mm. Huomioitavaa siinä on sen maltillinen koko. Kuvailin sillä muutaman tunnin kaupungilla ja se kulki tosi kätevästi mukana. Tunne oli sama kuin olisi kantanut 70-200mm täydenkennon zoomia. 

Toinen merkittävä ominaisuus on siinä oleva vakaaja. Perinteisestihän vakaaja Olympuksessa on ollut rungossa ja nyt lisävakautta antaa myös objektiivissa oleva vakaaja. Yhteisvaikutus on parhaimmillaan yhdessä E-M5 MKII kanssa peräti kuusi aukkoa. E-M1:sen kanssa päästään viiteen aukkoon. Telen pieni koko ja tehokas vakaaja antaa mahodllisuuden kuvata käsivaralta suhteellisen pitkiäkin valotuksia. 

Katso alla olevasta videosta lisää ajatuksiani siitä. Videolla myös kyseisellä objektiivillä kuvattuja kuvia.
