50mm f/1.4 Olympus Lens

joshwa The Olympus OM G.Zuiko lenses are quite compact (like this 50mm f/1.4) and fit pretty well on Olympus OM-D cameras like the E-M5 :) Bokeh is nice, and the lens can be very sharp when stopped down: You can also get some interesting effects when shooting into the light, including loss of...

conradI've reached the point where I wish that I could load an old-fashioned battery in my camera - the kind you bought in the shop, put in, used for a year, and then replaced. I'm so frustrated by now, it's not nice. Since last year I've had some problems charging the battery for my Olympus Om-D E-M5....

conradThe weather looked so promising this morning, and then everything turned grey. Pity. In such circumstances it's nice to look at photos taken in sunnier situations. These are just some dandelions, but I think the image looks quite cheerful.

Goodbye Canon 3XL

conradSome of you may be scratching their heads now, trying to think of a Canon model by the name of 3XL, but let me spare you the trouble and explain that 3XL doesn't refer to a camera, lens or photographic accessory at all - unless you count a T-shirt with the name of a camera manufacturer on it as a ph...

conradMy Secret St. Nicholas has done very well, he has clearly taken my hobby preferences and needs into account. So far Ive been using a belt pack or a light shoulder bag for my Olympus OM-D EM-5, but sometimes a ready case is just handier. And thats what I got, so Im happy! Leather as well. ...

The End of an Era

conradToday it was a final goodbye to my Canon kit, and a hello to my new small and lightweight Olympus kit: an OM-D E-M5 with a 12-50 lens. Talking to the dealer, I reminisced about my early photographic beginnings. It all started with my father feeling that if I was to take photographs, that was ...

conradSo, the decision's been made. I'm selling my Canon kit and going for something smaller and lighter. (See the forum thread here.) I've been reluctant to make the decision, because I felt very much attached to my trusty Canon 20D and the excellent lenses I'd collected, but I just don't want to walk...

Pointless junk mail

PeteWe all get fed up with daily email spam, spam phone calls and pointless junk mail through the letterbox. Well most of it's pointless, but this one that arrived in today's post beat the rest. The main message to get you to open the letter was "You can ignore me if you want to." So I...

Project 365-88

CaptivePhotonsI've just upgraded my copy of CS4 to CS5, (ready for the enforced new upgrade policy from Adobe :() and I felt I really should be trying to get more out of Photoshop. So I've embarked on trying out a few tutorials and downloaded a few podcasts with the aim of trying to improve. This one is just ...

david bailey

MattGraysonI had the opportunity to meet the legendary photographer on Thursday at a press event organised by Olympus. They were showcasing the new E-30 and E-620 and Mr. Bailey turned up for a Q&A session. It's great to know that ePHOTOzine led the way. We were the only ones with questions prepared and so...

conradTo be clear: This blog entry isn't about the album with this name by punk rock band Lagwagon. Nor is it about Dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria, a hereditary skin disorder, Toledo Suburban Airport's international code, Dungra Bhil's language code, or Deutsche Umwelthilfe, a German environmenta...

No Signs Of Life

conradI prefer to always have a camera with me. Admitted, it isn't always practical, but I do try. Because when I'm out and about without a camera, there's always a reason to regret I didn't take one. Before I went digital, I had a Canon EOS IX (Canon's APS SLR, quite a nice camera!) in my photo bag. A...
