    The Right Change From DSLR

    I very rarely write product reviews, but I rely on them all of the time. Thoughtful reviews have been incredibly helpful in wading through the myriad of camera options. In this review, I want to explain why I bought the Olympus M5 Mark III and my initial observations about using the camera. <br />You need some context for my comments. I am an avid enthusiast photographer. My primary focus is landscapes. Over the past ten years, my camera of choice went from Sony NEX-5N to Sony a6000 to Nikon D7000 to Nikon D800. I loved the D800., but the size of the camera became increasingly problematic for another part of my life – Parkinson’s Disease. Hand tremors made taking sharp photos without a tripod increasingly difficult. The weight of my DSLR gear added to the challenges of hiking. So, How did I go from a 35 MP full frame camera to a 20 MP micro four thirds camera? <br />The selection of a camera is both personal and kind of overwhelming. There are LOTS of good options and you probably will not make a bad decision. Finding a weather sealed camera with in-body image stabilization became my top priority. Olympus immediately stood out. Once I decided that going from full frame to micro four thirds was manageable, the Olympus sale price became the deciding factor – a great value. What doesn’t come out in a review is the hours spent watching YouTube videos, reading reviews and comparing cameras. <br />Did I make a good decision? The answer is most certainly “Yes!” <br />+ The image stabilization I wonderful. It greatly expands my ability to take handheld photos. <br />+ The auto-focus and image quality are excellent. <br />- It does not excel at low light and night photography. <br />+ I like the size and ergonomics. The jump from the D800 to a small camera has not been an issue. It is comfortable to old and operate. <br />+ The dedicated dials for mode, aperture and shutter speed are perfect for me. If not for you, all of the dials and buttons can be customized <br />+ I can already tell that I will take this camera to places that I would not a DSLR. This size and articulating screen open an array of shooting angles that were not available with my DSLR. <br />- Battery life is significantly less than the D800. Makes sure to have spares. <br />+ Th WiFi remote app is great. I love being able to review photos on my iPad. <br />+ The smaller size and weight works better with my tripod. I am excited to have camera that will work with a small tripod that is easier to tag along. <br />I hope my thoughts are helpful. Goof luck on your camera decision making. <br />

    A Great Camera for Spontaneous Opportunities

    I really enjoy photographing birds in flight. So after much research I purchased an E-M1X and a 40-150 F2.8 Pro lens. I was blown away with the performance and quality of that combination. However, together they are a little too large to keep under the car seat ready for a spontaneous opportunity to present itself. So I started looking for a smaller back-up system which wouldn’t make me give up too much performance in order to always be at the ready. I didn’t have to look far, the E-M1 Mark II was the obvious choice. The Mark II is a professional level camera. It was designed to satisfy a demanding level of user who needs it to perform regardless of the conditions, and it shows in the outstanding build quality and its performance. It has enough of the features of the E-M1X to satisfy what I need, in the size I was looking for, and at a great price. In the short time I’ve had it, its enabled me to get shots of multiple birds including bald eagles and red tailed hawks I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise. This camera wasn’t intended to be my primary camera and replace my E-M1X, but for most users it could certainly fit that bill. Once again, I’m highly impressed with OM-D and their Olympus products. Well done, and thank you.
