In-camera black & white

Yes, the Olympus in-camera black & white mode is great. I also love the fact that with modern cameras of the “mirrorless” category you can have a preview of the outcoming image right in your viewfinder or on the rear display, in black & white. And if you use the camera makers’ raw converter program, […]

My new camera

My brother Willi reminded me that I now have shown some photos taken *with* my new camera – but none so far *of* it. So I borrowed Mitchie’s Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark 2 once again to take a photo of my own one with it. Mitchie currently has the 45mm/1.8 Olympus lens on her camera, […]

Considering the cost for a replacement which was 3 times that amount, I agreed upon the repair offer. […]

Still no camera…

I’m still waiting for my camera, so in the mean time I used Mitchie’s again today to take another photo of the cat. Used Rawtherapee on Linux only this time to “develop” it from the raw file: I’m writing this with the new editor in WordPress 5, new from this evening. Interesting…
