I still don’t have my camera back from repair, so yesterday I took Tuna’s picture with Mitchie’s E-M5 Mk2 camera. She had the 45mm/1.8 lens on it: It’s an in-camera black & white picture with a simulated yellow filter, but I mid-toned it in post with RawTherapee. Thanks for viewing.
My camera which broke almost 2 weeks ago will be repaired at Olympus – it will be a heart-and-brain transplant (mainboard) which will cost about one third of a camera replacement, so it’s the reasonable thing to do. Until then I can sometimes borrow a camera from Mitchie or from Zuleikha, so today I used […]
Wow – this is super interesting, because it brings together all these creative arts: Thanks Estelle – this video and the one about Giant Steps brought you a new subscriber! To my readers: you know I love both music *and* photography – thanks for your interest as well!
So my camera is in Hamburg, at Olympus German headquarters to check what’s wrong, and to estimate how much a repair would cost. And without borrowing any of my older cameras from Zuleikha who now has most of them (my E-520, my E-PL1, and Mitchie’s E-PL5), I still have what almost everyone has (and carries […]
I was thinking loudly about photography gear end of October because someone over at Imaging Resource wrote about benefits of ‘crop’ sensor cameras, meaning those with a sensor smaller than 24x36mm. And my resumée was that if my camera died today I’d probably just go and get its successor, or a Pen-F. And since yesterday […]
Just read a very nice article by Dave Pardue on Imaging Resource about what he calls the “middle ground” cameras. It even has a photo of Mitchie’s Olympus E-M5 Mk2, which is indeed a very cool piece of equipment. And I think, for this year in retrospect, he’s right. Lots and lots of so-called “full […]
With great sadness I read that Ara Güler died. In case you don’t know who he was, here are the German and English Wikipedia pages about him. And here’s a documentation in German which German TV made last year and broadcasted this year: Thank you Ara. Rest in piece.
At the Wikiloops meeting in Steinfeld, someone – I guess it was Diana – took a photo of me playing Marc’s Jazz Bass in front of Gijs’ rig and Marc’s fantastic little Markbass amp: Looks nice – thanks for the portrait, friends! It was fun being there with you all. Oh, and the metadata of […]
I’m just back from the meeting mentioned in this picture, and wow, what a ride it was! Started a thread about it over at wikiloops.com, and here are the two photos I’ve posted there so far: More images and videos will follow on the Wikiloops forum in case you’re interested. For here and now, all […]
