Did Olympus fumble the design of the E-M1’s EVF ?

 

The EVF (electronic viewfinder) of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 is a high resolution viewfinder (2.36 million dots). It displays a very detailed excellent image but it seems that the EVF is easily prone to damage if the diopter is set to +2 magnification.

I normally wear glasses but remove them to photograph . . .

 

Are Mirrorless Cameras Always Smaller than DSLRs?

 

Hype aside, this question is something that I have encountered before with photographers asking for recommendations on cameras due to the fact that I have used mirrorless cameras since 2009. I do not believe that photographers choose a camera on the basis of one factor alone . . .

 

The other day I was once again astounded by the degree of detail and dynamic range in a 13 x 19 inch print shot with the Nikon Coolpix P7800. And while 13x19” is not a huge print size, it can certainly gives you a clear indication as to image quality, and what distinguishes the Coolpix P7800. . . .

 

The big question in my mind was since the E-M1 is a Micro-Four-Thirds sensor and the Sony a7II a full-frame one, I was very curious as to whether the Sony would give me 4 times the image quality or detail than the much smaller sensor. . . .

 

Why I loved the Fujifilm X-T1 and Sent it Back

 

Can the proverbial fly-in-the-ointment
prompt a return? By now many of us
are familiar with the virtues of the
Fujifilm X-T1, which was released back in January of 2014.
It is an APS-C size sensor endowed with Fuji’s proprietary X-Trans CMOS II . . . .

 

Nikon
Coolpix AW130 Waterproof Digital

 

The Nikon AW130 is a very compact 16MP dual-use camera that although specialized for underwater shooting, functions well as an all-weather camera on-land. It is guaranteed for a depth of 100 feet and successfully submerged to that depth without a problem. . . .

 

 

The Olympus E-M10 is a very compact Micro-Four-Thirds mirrorless camera with 3-axis in-body stabilization. It has excellent image quality due to the fact that it shares the same sensor and processor as you will find in Olympus’ flagship model, the E-M1. The build quality is very good, the body is small, light weight, and offers a wealth of features such as a 3-axis in-body stabilization . . .
