6 months of going mirrorless with the Olympus Pen-F

It’s been just over six months since I got rid of my dSLR and went mirrorless with the Olympus Pen-F so I figured it was time to review.

My main reason for changing was the bulk and weight of the Canon (with the Sigma lens) I had which, due in part to how I carried the camera, was actually causing physical pain – even when I wasn’t holding it.  It seemed to me that mirrorless Continue reading “6 months of going mirrorless with the Olympus Pen-F”

Missed opportunity?

I stopped at an estate sale at the weekend and picked up some furniture and just as I was leaving I saw a case on a table with an Olympus Stylus 35mm compact camera inside.  It had a $30 price tag on it and also had 8 films with it.

I asked about it and they said they would take $25.

I was very tempted but Continue reading “Missed opportunity?”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Antwerp

What are you looking at?

Experimented with an old Russian Industar f2.8/28mm lens on my Pen-F.  Not very  successful as the focussing seems to be off; there’s vignetting too.  Here’s one of the better ones.

Going mirrorless? part 3

Just putting down my thoughts on the two cameras I have in mind for going mirrorless should I decide to make the switch (apologies if I have said any of this before).

As mentioned previously the SLR has been giving me pain and I am thinking that technology is at the level where the difference between SLR vs Mirrorless (for my needs) is close enough.

So I have in mind two camera options having looked around; Sony a6300 and Olympus Pen-F digital. Continue reading “Going mirrorless? part 3”
