A selection of images from the new digital camera – Olympus / OM System OM-1 from OM Digital Solutions Corporation. Is it just me that thinks some marketing work is required? Anyhow, none of that matters unless your trying to find the new camera on Google, does it take good photos?
The following images were taken using the Subject Detection feature set to cat, using the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO lens.
A clear night to try out Stary Sky Auto Focus – works beautifully. This shot below of the Milky Way used the in-camera noise reduction and has been edited. Much less sensor noise and stuck pixels to deal with than the EM1 II.
Playing with flash in almost darkness, the OM-1’s Face and Eye detect which is oddly and awkwardly separated from Subject Detection, worked on this statue nicely. I’ve reprogrammed 2 of the 15+ programable buttons so I can quickly switch them on or off and chose the mode. I also changed the ISO button from just ISO to “Multi-Function”, so now I can select ISO, White Balance, Highlights and Shadows, Magnify, Live View and Peaking by holding the ISO button and turning the front wheel.
And finally, because fellow blogger Anneli asked, a shameless selfie with the new OM-1. Taken in a mirror and flipped in processing.
I also went on a hike along the South Wellington track to “The Rocking Stone” and another to “Secret Fall”, more images soon, I’ve taken HEAPS … though I will be a little busy with a wedding.
