Using Your Smartphone with Your Digital Camera, Not Instead of It

"Today's theme is using your smartphone with your digital camera. Not instead of it. I'm derek story. There's been so much talk about how smartphones will replace our digital cameras. But i think for nimble photographers. That's the wrong approach instead. Let's explore how we can use smartphones with our digital cameras instead of replacing them. I'll share one scenario today with a fujifilm x one hundred v in iphone. Twelve pro max. Although there are many combinations that will work great for both ios and android and of course on the digital camera side as well. I hope you enjoy the show. They're certainly situations. When i want my digital camera with all its tools inconveniences and then other situations when my smartphone will work. Just fine but to tell you the truth. The best scenario is having both with me. And that's what. I want to explore today now on the digital camera side when i discovered is that if i go with smaller more compact cameras which shouldn't be a shock to you right the fujifilm x one hundred v the olympus pen f the fujifilm x f. Ten with the twenty eight millimeter f. Two point eight lands those kinds of cameras that i absolutely love shooting with. But i don't want to carry all the accessories and everything you know. That's the funny thing about digital photography you can start out with a relatively compact camera and then maybe a compact lens and then you start packing your bags and go. I really should bring this. And i really should bring that. I need a longer lens. I need a wider lens. I probably should have a flash all that kind of stuff. Maybe i should bring my ipad. Maybe i should bring you know my Laptop maybe i should bring all the stuff in the next thing you know even though you started out with a relatively compact camera ended up with a relatively large camera kip. And if you're just going out the door for a walk you're going to. Maybe you know go visit a local park. If you're going to do something like that. Do you really need to bring all that stuff with you. Well i mean at the end of the day. That's a question that only you can answer. However i'm going to pose an approach that maybe you want to think about. That is a very nice alternative to starting out with a small camera and ending up with a big kit now the idea. I'm going to present to you. Today is taking one of your favourite microphone. Thirds are a pse cameras that you truly like. It could be a relatively compact a photo frame mirrorless as well if especially if it had A lens on it. That was reasonable in size and then augmenting it with a smartphone and especially one of the more current smartphones made by all the heavy hitters but especially smartphones at least two cameras you know two lenses and ideally three cameras or three lenses now the idea being that that smartphone can fill in the gaps that normally would be stuffing stuff into your camera bag to fulfill. And then you get to pick a camera that you truly like with lens that you absolutely love but are not worried about being limited by just having that one camera in that one lens with you you know you have like your favorite thing to shoot with just go. I love shooting with his camera. I love this lind's and then you have your sophisticated smartphone in your other pocket. That will allow you to leave everything else behind. Just your favourite camera just your smartphone and see how far you can go well. The fact of the matter is through my testing. You can go pretty far so what i'm gonna do right now is i. I'm going to start out. With listing some of the benefits of digital cameras. These are the things that i like about a digital camera. This is why. I will not give up a digital camera right and then i'm going to list some of the advantages of smartphones because they have many advantages as well and then i'm going to do is for the third list. I'm going to combine the two and say this is the dan of using both of these devices already so that is going to be the flow of this show. So let's start out with the list of benefits for digital cameras and for me. There are many the first thing that i like is that they typically have great viewfinders. That are so nice in so many different situations. In of course bright sunlight being at the top of the list so if i can look through a very nice electronic viewfinder a very nice optical viewfinder in compose a shot in really contrast bright conditions. I like that better than having to compose the lcd

Why buy a DSLR?

"Are you today. Excellent happy december. Absolutely i'm to leave. I'm going to lead the year out of that happy but you know happy december. The did you see the video. That ryan reynolds production company created about two days ago. Yes with devil and twenty twenty i. I've seen he says. I have not seen all of it but it looks really good zip So the story line for those who haven't seen it basically it's an ad for match dot com. Which is a dating site. And you've got the devil Who gets a notification on his phone saying that he's got a a match on match dot com and it's this girl who he goes to the meats and he says two zero two zero and she says call me twenty twenty they hang out together and the world's gown absolute crap and at the end this sitting side by side on a park benches asteroids flying in and hitting the earth the devils going. Be she to wind. And don't forget the required dumpster fire in the background. So yeah it's pretty indicative of this year. I think it is So how has your last. Seven days bain. My friend It's good a little busy a little. I had a lot of presentations this week. Which you know that's good. That's that's making money now and in pandemic time but i will tell you. I did something that i've never done before. So if you're if the listeners wanna check this out they can feel free to weigh in on this and maybe we'll talk about it next week. But i did a presentation for olympus yesterday run and You can see this presentation. It was a livestream. We did it on the olympics. The us olympics facebook page. So it's get ged t get. Olympus is the username. And i decided to kind of go out on a limb and they were kind enough to let me do it so they asked if i would participate in this twelve days of christmas promotion that they're doing and i said of course being and they said it'd be cool if you could you know do something about Doing like holiday portraits in creative things for holiday portraits and again. That's cool at sept-. I can't really shoot. Be because of this pandemic stuff and my wife is immuno-compromised song they're gonna bring a model makeup artist and that kind of stuff but the light bulb went off. I said i'll tell you what if you're game. I'd like to actually take it to the extreme and do our. But i don't wanna show any pictures at all. Wow a single picture. And i'm not gonna take any pictures so i'm going to do a one hour presentation about taking creative holiday portrait's and not show pictures and i'll admit they raise an eyebrow but they said hey we trust you you know your stuff so it's like okay and it was pretty well received so what i did just not scaring people completely is. I decided that it would be really cool to try and get people's creative thoughts going. So what i did show are lots of props but like you know the obvious christmas decoration things like to so garland nat but i had glasses drinking glasses and glass vases and i had some material things and i talked through all these different things that you could do to make your holiday. Portraits were interesting with the idea. Being that i didn't want to give people an example so that they could be lazy and just copied the example. I wanted to kind of plant an idea and really it. Any motion and challenge. And then olympus was was good enough. They agreed that we would run a little hashtag contest with it and The deadline is december twentieth. And the best shots that we pick olympus. Us and uk are going to share on their facebook pages and they're instagram stories. And then separately from olympus. I'm going to pick a one winter. The coolest shot the most creative idea that i find in the group and i'm going to do a one hour video consultation with them. Whatever topic they won't we can talk about their photography to a portfolio review post processing business. Whatever so so far experiments also good start it was it was pretty well received. There are a few people that were not happy that we weren't showing vigils. Most people actually commented if they thought it was actually a really neat thing because they were sitting there listening and they were actually able to imagine ideas in their mind based on where they're going to be for the holidays or based on their house and decorations. So we'll see i. You know i figure. Hey gotta take a chance. Every now and say in principle that sounds like the absolute ideal way to approach that. Because as you say the minute you put up images people are just going to go. How can i recreate that. It's what i want them to do. Is get away from those to actually get creative and yes right. So i i went to great lengths to really kind of describe my ideas in detail how i would go about doing them but i didn't want to show them ideas and i'll i'll make sure i share the link to the lies yea totally so it It was it was kind of fun doing it. I won't i won't lie. I was a little worried the whole time. Because as i'm talking to the camera i can't really watch the comments so i'm thinking all right she like this or they hate it. When i finish talking. I was almost afraid to look at the comments

"Me from allentown pennsylvania. It is mr jones elwin. Joe welcome back four hundred ninety one. Why is it. I think this is only the third time on shutters. What's up with that. That is a case of criminal negligence on my part. I i have a feeling your partner in crime was trying to suppress my voice. You're more than likely just because he's not here. I take shots at. That's absolutely right. have you been. I'd be good. That'd be good you know. Hey it's a pandemic. so what can we say but hanging in there Staying out more trouble than i normally would because it's harder to find trouble that's yeah it has been one crazy crazy year. Hasn't not or how are how are you guys doing with it. Down on fairly look being managed out of control i would say that four populated countries. I think australia has to be pretty close to the top of the list for the way we've handled it the that's all. i think. Awesome the here about a lot in the news here. We don't hear australia mentioned so that's interesting because they've done very well as well live managed to keep it under control will And put it on the news a lot. I think for the entirety of the year. I think streisand had about a thousand deaths if that all. I don't think we've had massive numbers at all. Victoria had a second wave way. The whole state went into lockdown for months on end and people were not allowed by the houses unless they had a good reason did they could only go within a five kilometer range and all that sort of stuff so we've been at governments have come under criticism for being too heavy handed but when i look look at africa's against say the us figures kind of think well i'd rather a slightly heavy handed government that actually keeps us alive the one that draws the just sweep it under the cap and pretend it's not a problem it's getting pretty rough here in europe is also going through the same and right now of course we're kind of in this crazy limbo where you know. We're really not getting any great direction. At this point administration. They're they're talking a lot. They're encouraging people. But obviously we still have the old administration. It's basically sand. Yeah there's no pandemic everything's fine. It's like we kind of live in two different worlds. Yeah it's been an interesting year this year so photographic. Have you been up this year. Haw well let's see. Prior to this year. I was doing a ton of traveling. Or olympus since my other sponsors teaching that kind of stuff i came into this year with what would have been literally my busiest year probably in the last twenty years might might. You're booked solid The beginning of the year. I was doing a nationwide tour. For olympus introducing the new owen. Dam one three camera. And the last trip i made was down to florida in the first week of march and Came home a couple of days later. We went into lockdown and within three weeks my entire schedule for the year was just wiped out. Everything had cancelled well in advance A few of the events went Went virtual but You know. I've always kind of been somewhat of an entrepreneurial spirit so i figured all right you need to pivot quickly and Some photographers pivoted by kind of moving into like product photography in that because fortunately people were still producing catalogues online stores. And i really didn't feel like going back into that area. I'd done that years and years and years ago. So federate i'm teaching. I'm enjoying the teaching. So i didn't learn how to do it online and i took a couple of days and did the whole pros and cons thing like okay. What are all the things that i like about online teaching. And what are all the things that i hate. And not of course was the longer list I'm a bit of a marketing nerd. So i've done a lot of marketing. Webinars where you sit there and the instructors staring down a laptop screen with really bad lady and a blurry image. And they're like okay. Let me let me share my screen with you. Oh wait hold on a second hold on I knew i had that slide deck. You're just a second you know. They're just painful. So at that point i did a ton of research figure out. What's it gonna take. How can i make a presentation. That is as close to doing in person as possible without really being there. And

5 Things Photographers Wonder About and Sometimes Debate

"Know it's funny. The things that just sort of come into your mind sometimes, and yes, we have Google and a lot of times we use Google. But the thing about Google is that you don't really have a relationship with Google, in the sense, there's any predictability about what Google is going to say, and the analogy that I like to use our film critics and film critics are interesting to me because when you find a film critic that has similar tastes to yours then that film critic becomes really valuable because he or she then you know has opinions that that more often than not you know you're going to like or see eye to eye with. So it's not like you just you know on Google is like you get all film critics. All film critics all over the map. And some of them you know may have the same sort of tastes that you do and some may not, and there's really no way to know, and that's kind of the cool thing when you get to hang out with someone or you have a friendship with somebody. who sort of sees things the way that you do and in photography that can be particularly useful because as you bounce ideas off them, they're just not gonna go off all over them. Happy. You know you go. Well, what should I use? You Know Light Room or you know? Capture one pro and they go I think you should never use anything at all. And you go. Well well, I have to use something. No finder based is the best way to go and you're just going. This is totally not useful. Not Useful. I. Need. So on that sort of understands that a photo management application is useful at least as a starting point. The reason, why bring all of this up is that with all the advantages that we have with online life these days, there are still a lot of little gaps gaps where you go man I just. I just wish Google understood me I just wish Alexa. Understood me. So that she would give me some sort of answer that came close to the way that I see the world. Now that sort of a long winded way for me to say some of these questions that they have here. I'm sure you have asked yourself before you know sure that you've just Kinda gone in your mind. Well, you know are they you know Blah Blah Blah and then kind of look it up and you get all sorts of different things in some point you go. I don't. I kinda the same spot I was before and you still may be in the same spot that you were before with these after I talk about them. But at least we'll have fun doing it right in that. Okay. There's something to be said for that. All right. So I have five things here that SORTA come up. and. They're fun to deal with in the world of photography. And sometimes it's really helpful to have a sounding board for these things and I'm going to start with the first one are generic batteries okay to use. And are they as good as the ones sold by manufacturers at twice the price in any of us who shoot with digital cameras, which probably is all of us know this scenario when you buy the digital camera, you get a battery and it's made by the manufacturer or at least it has the manufacturers labelling on it. In the manufacturers, very clear about these are the only batteries that should go in your camera because otherwise who knows it may start you know catching on fire or go up in pufus smoke or The meter may suddenly give you odd readings and things like that odd things that you just don't know. And my experience has been with third party batteries and generally speaking I use a Watson for my batteries that are not made by the manufacturer and I've had great luck with them I use them in Olympus Cameras, use them Fuji Cameras, use them in Nikon cameras. The reason why I use them is because they cost a lot less in my experience has been that they last as long and they perform as well and I have yet to have a problem with any of these batteries in the sense that my camera did not perform the way that I expected it to have not had any of those issues at all. So right now, in fact, I have in the other room I have a double chargers, a Watson charge of double charger with removable plates. I can charge two batteries at the same time and I can charge all sorts of different types of batteries because each little plate that costs whatever six, five, six dollars. allows me to fit a specific camera battery in it, and when you're sewing like me, that's always having different cameras and stuff in in the mix This is really helpful. Now when I go out for a shoot generally speaking I will have three batteries with me. Right, it'll be one daddy in the camera, and then I'll have an extra two batteries and rarely do I have any problems having three batteries with me even on cameras that go through batteries pretty fast. Now, one of those three batteries will be manufacturer's battery and the other two generally speaking are made by someone else like Watson or something like that, and I don't even think about which battery is in the camera and he'd given us not like I'm always going to start with the manufacturer's battery, and then if I have to, I'll go to the Watson. I don't do that. I mean sometimes watching starts out in there sometimes the manufacture. It doesn't make any difference in I. Don't notice any difference so. To answer this particular question. I don't know what Google says. Is. It's OK to use generic batteries. Look at the reviews before you buy photographers will tell you if the battery is performing well or not. If it's got four star rating or more, and most of the comments are hey, the saying I can't even tell the difference is probably safer you to use it and you will save a boatload of money. In other words you could buy two of those batteries and probably a portable charger for the price that the manufacturer wants to charge you for their battery.

Should You Create a Photography Budget?

"After the first week of shooting with the Nikon Z. Five near camera with twenty four to fifty millimeter compact Zoom Lens and compacted is for a full frame. I started asking myself where can I reasonably come up with the seventeen hundred dollars to buy this kit? And you may recall that I talked about this camera a few weeks ago on the podcast and I really liked it i. did I was so impressed with the images that does making from the eastern Sierra and Lake Tahoe with this camera than I thought man, this would be good to have access to all the time. All the time. You know it's not too heavy. The compact twenty, four to fifty millimeter lens was performing really beyond my expectations. And I already have lots of Nikon glass that I could use with an adapter. I don't have the Z. Mount Glass. I would just have the twenty four fifty if I bought the kit. But I have all sorts of F mount stuff I have g lenses and I could get their adapter in use all of that with this camera. So I was very very tempted. Full frame cameras that had shot with in a long time that not only did I like the camera itself not only I enjoy shooting with it. I loved the images and I felt like it was a manageable camera to have with me when I'm hiking and doing things outdoors. So now, we fast forward three weeks later. And I'm boxing up the Nikon's e five in attaching the shipping label to return it to be an H. Photo who had let me use it for a month of for review purposes. So by this point I was okay sending it back. I didn't want to but it was the right decision. So I went from you know that first week just really being infatuated with it wanting to hang onto it. I still want to hang onto it but over the course of the next three weeks, I got to the point to where I can send it back. You know pretty much like I was supposed to. So, how did I get from Point A to point B right? Now I can look you straight in the Mike in say I'm okay. Sending it back. I really have. Here's how. Because, that seventeen hundred dollars plus probably another four hundred dollars for accessories and especially, I was GonNa need you know the adapter? So I could use my f Mount Lenses. That was not in my twenty twenty photography budget. In fact, you know we're only in October and I have less than seven hundred dollars left to spend. So back to New York the Z five goes now that wasn't the only factor in I'll. I'll explain a little bit more about that, but it was definitely a factor. You know I have done my budget ahead of time I do it about this time of year for the next year. I have made some very good purchases that I'm in love with. And seven hundred dollars left and Z five just doesn't fit in that tiny little window of seven hundred dollars doesn't even come close. So the funny thing is even though. On one level I hate them I'm a big Fan of budgets right? You know. I guess it is the ultimate love hate relationship. You Know I. Have An overall budget for the business you know and I run that monthly and that's for the. Business and then I have a breakout budget specially forget and that's more what I'm talking about today. And then I create budgets for trips as well. Well, at least I did until about six months ago. And I haven't created any of those lately at all I wonder why wonder why? I do the photography budget because it protects me from me I know how easily a new camera or a new land can turn my head I. Know that about me I do. So easily in fact, that I usually have to create a pros and cons list in addition to a budget to reach a sound decision I'll give you some examples earlier this year. I wanted to by the OEM D one mark three, right I had had it on loan I loved shooting with it. You know I went to Costa Rica with it. I had it with me in Costa Rica along with some lenses. and. I was truly impressed with this camera and I'm already shooting Olympus. It was eighteen hundred dollars then when I when I first resisted and now even worse for me, you can get one for fourteen hundred dollars. You can get the M one mark three for fourteen hundred dollars. That is a good value. I'm telling you right now. But you know that's still twice as much as my remaining senator dollars in my budget to tell you the truth. This is where the pros and cons comes in as well. I really can't justify it because my mark to is still an amazing camera that thing has been producing great images for such a long continues to do so.

Brooklyn Nets hire Hall of Famer Steve Nash as head coach

"Welcome to the low post podcast where the plan was to talk hilariously awful game sevens and DEFCON. In Milwaukee with the one and only Kevin Arnovitz but Mr Kevin Arnovitz about five minutes ago news dropped from the news gods on Mount Olympus of Basketball Steve Nash Steve Freaking, Nash, two time. NBA Mvp. The point God of the seven seconds less Phoenix Suns will become the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets. This is I think the first one since Brad, Stevens to Boston were like the news came although that came via a press release the celtics that one themselves where the news came like an earthquake with absolutely no warning no rumors know anything all the rumors moghreb Popovich a note, Steve Nash. So Steve Nash Has Minimal coaching experiences consulted team Canada. I'm not sure again this just happened I haven't looked up his exact role, a team Canada he was a consultant with the Golden State, warriors GM. You might have been the GM GM Canada. You're right. And I think clearly relevant in his consultation with the Golden State. Warriors developed a close relationship with Kevin Durant and I and they worked together in the off season a lot on various aspects of Katie's game in I interviewed. Steve Two years ago. About Kevin I wrote a big piece in the two thousand eighteen finals or so anti climactic that my big final piece was not about the finals at all it was about like what is Kevin Durant WanNa be as a basketball player like what is Kevin Durant? You Know Kevin Durant and his entire career has been. You could argue who was the quote best player on the team with the warriors not with the thunder he was clearly the best player on the thunder team but was never the lead ball handler of his team. So I wrote this sort of like, what is Kevin Durant and Steve Talk to me in depth about their relationship and about how after the warriors won the first title he and Kevin would talk about how Kevin did not fill fulfilled by. Winning that title in the way that he expected that it did not give him the fulfillment that he expected all this. So I, think that's obviously A big reason why Kevin by Steve Nash is now the coach of the nets. I mean the nets have lots of stuff to not figure out they have to superstars coming back carousel avert head. As you know like a superstar scoring run I guess in the bubble they gotTA figure out fits those guys I mean, what's your? What's this just happened? What do you think what's happening? So, one way to look at this is what is the head coach's role in two thousand and twenty, twenty one and to a great extent. Especially when you have talent like durant irving, you're in the talent management business, you're in the business of men managing relationships, empowering players the right way. Their XS and os no. By the way if there's anybody who's the personification of modern basketball, it's this guy or like everything you and I talk about every single time I'm on can in some ways be traced back to that son's team. So you're talking about a guy with an enormous. Basketball IQ and by all accounts and emotional IQ as well. So. So, that that is the case sport that that look that is the primary responsibility of the New Jersey Nets. Can you listen to me Brooklyn Nets had could they're

5 Easy Ways to Edit Movies Recorded with Your Camera

"So for a while, I was wondering about the actual need of having all this video capability. With are still cameras of course you know that's a little biased me saying that right there because they're just cameras but around the world, a lot of folks are really looking at these things to shoot video. And then Oh yeah they take pictures as well and that is a real thing. Studies are showing that the manufacturers are saying that's what the demand is. So. This is being driven by the consumer as well as those that design the cameras and then I started thinking about my own work and how often I do fire up the video mode on my Olympus or on my Fuji Film Camera and I it's a real thing. Isn't it? And then I think getting. From listeners and they're going you know especially now when we're sheltered in a lot more can't go outside as much and. Are exploring new features on our cameras. One of the features that they are exploring is making videos and than sharing them with people, you know most photographers and most artists have a variety of different interests and some of those interests are very nicely explained of by making a video about how to do this or how to do that. Is Essentially what I do for a living, right? So. So. Why not everyone? Else's? Well, why not? I was looking at you know this sort of conundrum that comes up with you know okay. Capturing images as one thing. And you know taking video is another and then getting decent sound is another and then once you get that video and has some decent sound. What do you do with it? I mean, do have to go out and spend two, hundred, ninety, nine dollars to buy final cut or. By adobe of video editing software or can you use something that you already have the do the basic things in the basic things are really what most people need at the very top of the list is trimming because a lot of times when we're shooting video ourselves, which we do most of the time, right? You know the production crus- somewhere else in there we are. We've gotta take care of everything ourself. And trimming is the big deal right because you know you start the video. and. Then you know maybe the camera tripod or whatever, and you know you gotta walk over and then you get in front of the Cameron Start Talking doing your thing and then when he finished saying what you're, GonNa say then you gotta walk back to the camera turn off. Well, you know those bits on both ends and even if you're doing handheld stuff, right press the button all that while there's usually some rigmarole that goes on then those bits on both ends are the things that need to go away in fact. If we just get rid of those bits on both ends. We already have the meat of a pretty good video right there. So trimming is something that everyone needs to do everyone needs to trim, and if you're not trimming, then do not share your videos with other people right? Unless they're just you know something fun like an iphone video or something like that. another very common request is being able to add videos together like video bits together to make one movie. people also like to be able to add a title. Or some sort of graphic to their movie you know. So all these things are really nice to be able to do to to take it from just a clip to something that's a little bit more of a presentation, and then when you've done that, you know, how can you share it? I mean, can you export it into a file format that works Nicer Youtube or works Nicer facebook or whatever you happen to us to share your video. So these basic tasks do not require you know final cut ten or another expensive video editing up there are APPs upset you probably have on your computer right now that can handle most or all of these things, and that's what I'm going to talk about right now I have five of them for you. And I'm going to start out with a quick time and quick time for the Mac. Now, quicktime used to be for both windows and Mac, and then around two thousand, sixteen or so. Apple stopped officially supporting quicktime for windows even though that latest version that latest windows version seven, point six or seven point seven actually still works on windows ten so but is not officially supported. So I'm just going to talk about it for the Mac right now, I do have windows APPs to that we'll be talking about we'll talk about quicktime for the Mac but the player, not even quicktime pro but the modern player that every Mac user has actually does a pretty good job of trimming movies of stitching clips together, and then you can even move them around when they're on the time line and I don't think. I. Realize that you can do this. You open the video clip that you shot with your camera. You know you go to edit there's trim right there, and then there's also a command to add clip at the end and you go. Why can I add clip at the beginning? We don't have to worry about that. Just add the the clip at the end the second movie. Because once added, then you can click on it and move it around. You can move it around so you can move it to the beginning.

5 Ways to Spice Up Your Pix Life

"Much has been written about the evils of your Acquisition Syndrome often referred to as gas. And the US. It is a real thing for many photographers.

What about those smaller purchases that bring us true joy and energize our enthusiasm for photography. I'll make my anti gas case on today's tedious podcast I. Hope You enjoy the show. I don't know if you've ever done this but I'm going to admit you right now. That I have okay. Now fortunately is just you and me so you know no one else will. No I've never I've never admitted this anywhere else before. And this is the truth I'm telling you the truth right now. So but just from my mouth to your ears right now have you ever Set. A new camera or an accessory for it. On. The table in front of you while you worked watch TV listen to music you know just. said it there It wasn't in use. There was no particular reason to do this. Other than you just wanted to look at it and admire it's beauty. I've done that. Honestly, I. I have done that more than once. To cases that come to mind right now, the first one is the Olympus pen. F. In its handsome leather half case Oh. My Gosh. What a beauty So pretty. The other one is the Fujifilm x one hundred V with its aluminum grip? Yeah. That's pretty two different cameras you know the my pen F is a silver Penev. Got Some really beautiful silver lenses and I get this brown leather half case with a matching rhys strap. Really Nice and then my ex one hundred V is the all black model which I really liked for the Fuji Film. And it has this aircraft aluminum grip really really pretty. Really Nice. And when I look at these things sitting on the table in front of me. While I'm watching TV, while I'm listening to music while I'm browsing the web doing whatever the heck. I do at ten o'clock at night. It makes me WANNA go out and take pictures you know I go i. Can't wait to get that camera my hands and go do something. And that's the idea that's the idea and especially right now that's the idea. To be excited to have enthusiasm to you know want to go do something that you actually can do pick up your camera and go take pictures when we're a bit stale feeling that stale how can we spark this kind of joy? Without digging our credit cards for a fifteen hundred dollar charge in my trick as you've already figured out has been through new accessories and techniques, and you may be surprised to know that I have five of these. To share with you this week. Okay. So let's let's get started on these little things. This is my anti-gas list. Okay. Because they don't qualify they don't call not one of these qualify. For Gear Acquisition Syndrome and you can argue that with me but I'm not going to yield on this on already. Here we got and I'm GonNa fool with you on the first one the first one's. GonNa. Mess with you right out of the shoot. The first one is a new Lens. Coin what you just said, right a new lens but a vintage one. Yes. So it's only new to you is been around for a long time. Yes. You could spend twelve hundred dollars on a new state of the art optic no problem. You can spend more than that if you wanted. But scoring of vintage beauty for one hundred dollars or less. Can Be just as satisfying in evokes a far less guilt. In the images that this glass producers can truly inspiring because it seems like each lens that you find on Ebay or craigslist or Oetzi or your local camera shop each vintage lens that you find has a different feel to it and. Go. Wow. This is really Kinda neat and sometimes in the world of digital optics everything sort of produces the same super magnificent results right which is great. Until you know a thousand frame of the same super magnificent result and he got I really would like to see something different. A new vintage lens can do that. And since most of US shoot murless or have a meritless camera, they adapt these lenses adapt. So well, meritless cameras. It's not even funny. You can get an adapter for like fifteen bucks at works. Great. You have this manual Focus Lens you take some pictures with it. You're going. Wow, this is really interesting. This looks different. It's different operating is different looking through the electronic viewfinder with it's just different the way around and it can be very motivating very inspiring. It can push you to photograph things that you might bypass otherwise just because turn out interesting with this particular Lens.

Human Beings Being Human

"Hello. This is peace out stories for coming down and relaxation. My name is Chanel. This season, we talked about the life cycle of Pebbles Gio, D- mice, helium tomatoes trees, Sea Stars Sea. Salmon CICADAS and of course, the T. Rex. And now we're here. At the last episode of our fourth season. And it's all about you. It's about us. Human. Beings. Sit in a comfortable position. Rest your hands on your knees. If, you'd like to lie down go ahead. We're GONNA take our time settling into this first part today. Close Your eyes if you'd like. Breathing. In and. What's going through your mind right now? Our minds are always making thoughts. So. Sometimes, it might feel like we're standing in a river. The thoughts always flowing. and. They'll keep flowing and going. and. That's okay. But sometimes it can feel like to watch. If. We need a break from the flowing thoughts instead of trying to stop them instead of letting the water carry you away. There's always the option to. Step right out of the water. And sit on the riverbank and have arrest. You can just sit. And enjoy watching the water run by. But you're not feeling the push of it. Not Worried about where the water's coming from or where it's going. And then when you're ready and want to get back into the cool water. You'll be able to play in it and stand strong for longer. If the flowing river our thoughts. then. That little break on the riverbank is mindfulness. Mindfulness is about staying in the present moment. Not Thinking about what's happened in the past. Or worrying about what might happen in the future? Just being here. Now. Take notice of your breathing right now. Is it slowing down Or fast. Is it long and deep. Or short shallow. You don't have to change anything about it right now. Just notice it. Our brains are always working and making judgments on the information thoughts and experiences coming in. If you've seen the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory You'll probably remember seen when Ruka Salt Sasi Geese that lay golden inks. The golden eggs would come down onto the educators scale that would decide whether it was a good egg. Or A bag. Well, of course, in real life, there are many more judgments beyond good or bad. But, the brain is like that educator. Taking in each thought and making a quick automatic decision if it likes it and tells us that we should keep looking for these good things or doesn't like it and tells us to avoid these things. Or maybe our brain is neutral about them. We don't really have to pay attention or do anything about it. That brings us to another big part of being mindful. Letting. Go of the judgment. Our brains will always be judging the information coming in. which is not a bad thing. Let's say Mr Willy Wonka began noticing that there have been a lot of bad aches lately. He might wonder. Why are my kiessling so many bad eggs. Are They not getting enough healthy food. Not Enough water. Maybe, we should give them more to eat every day or something different to eat on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Should I get the Olympus to check on the more? Are the bad eggs really that bad. Maybe I need to think about how we measured what good eggs. And change it. Or maybe I need to let my geese run freely in a big field and not keep them in this room.

"It's no slouch in the area of autofocus I mentioned before it also has a five axis sensor shift image stabilization for both video and still both video and still in provides up to four and a half stops of stabilization. Quite nice and remember. One thing that you get on this camera is you get the pop up flash. In. The early days of this camera will had three axis stabilization in order to have room for the flash. Now, we still get the flash and we get four point. Five stops stabilization in. This is really good stuff. I don't know how they figure out how to do this, but they have, and of course, we all benefit sequential shooting is up to eight point, seven frames per second. That's I. would say quite decent. And I level electric viewfinder at two point, three, six, million dots. Now, this is GonNa be the first area where you know some people are GonNa, go. Wow, you know we see all these really high resolution electronic viewfinders. Some of which may be from company, we call Sony Eight. and. Two point three six seems a little low compared to some of the other ones out there, and that's correct. That's correct. There are some really great high resolution of viewfinders out there. I would say that that knit is more appropriate for the Higher End Olympics cameras am one and even the m five a series, and for this model, which you can get at a very good price will going to cover that that. I think that two point three six. Six is you know this decent for this model that being said, this is one area where I would love to see Olympics get a little bit more resolution in that electronic viewfinder in not have such a discrepancy between its cameras and some of the other cameras that we see on the market right now, and I would say that this is also true for the three inch tilting monitor at a one million dots by the ways, the proportions under three to two. I just feels like that. That could be a little higher this day and age could be a little higher. I. Mean I don't have a problem looking LCD at a million dots. But then when I look at it LCD at you know higher density I go. Wow. That's Kinda, Nice. Isn't it? It's Kinda Nice. Again. I'm GonNa, cut them some slack because this is the Em Tan and not the M one and not the an five writing. Let's see. What else do we have here? All we've got the ESPN metering. We have three, hundred, twenty, four area multi pattern metering going on here. Very nice. You'll still have center weighted, you have average. and. Then spot metering and boy, those of you that shot back in the film days with the OEM for you have spot metering with highlight control and spot metering was shadow control shades of the old oem for teeth film camera. It's a nice little feature to have especially if you're in the spot metering Zagat, three different types of spot metering alone, plus you've got the evaluative metering suite on the ISO. The, standard ISO on this goes up to sixty four hundred. So you can go low as low as one hundred and up to sixty, four hundred, and then if you go into, you know where you override the auto ISO, you can go up to twenty, five, thousand, six, hundred. I can't really see pushing this sensor up to twenty, five, thousand, six, hundred. Isla gas that sixty four hundred is as high as you'd WanNa, push it personally for a micro four third center. I'm comfortable up to about thirty two hundred, and then after that, it's gotta be a special situation for me but I'd be curious to see I'd be curious to see because it does have you know the latest engine in it. So who knows they may have found a way to give us a very decent sixty, four hundred that would be one for the field test and not just looking at these numbers on paper here. Now. I mentioned that it has the built in Flash, which is what I've always loved about the EM tem. In only have the built in Flash, it can serve as the controller. Olympus? Flashes. So you don't have to buy a controller. You don't have to use another flash as a controller. You can use the built in flash as a controller and then use the Olympics wireless RC flash system. Sweet, I just love the seat, your love love love the seizure and I've used it many times and you can even use it worse a controller and it gives you a little fill light, and then you also have like coming from the flash at you have mounted off to the side or where we happen to have it. Good stuff indeed. Now, it has one s t card slot, which we would expect for a camera at this level, but it has S. d. h. c. s the X. C. U. H. S. one end you s to compatibility. So that's nice. It's a nice fast SD card slot ua on that, and you're going to need it because you also have four K. video full four K. video at thirty p. Twenty Five P and twenty four P. Okay, Nice Nice Nice having that four K. video the bit rate is the approximate bit rate is right around one hundred megabits per second, which is decent. That middle of the road when I'm shooting for K. on the Fuji Film You, know x one, hundred V. it goes up to two hundred megabits per second, which is where I lock it in, but it also has at a one hundred and it also has fifty. So the one hundred megabits per second is quite decent middle of the road again, not top drawer four, K. Video, but it is full four K. video at thirty, p twenty, five, and twenty, four P. If you're not shooting a lot with four, K., you're GonNa have fun with this camera learning about four K. in capturing. The next thing which is related to this is that an external mic can be attached, but I'm not exactly sure. How Because, you know what? I see on ports as I see a USB, micro and I also see an HD. We're not going to connect the external mic to the HDMI. So that leaves us with the USB and I'm not sure how that works. This feels like one thing where I go. Oh, you know I really like having a dedicated microphone port. I'm okay. With using the USB port for the headphones Jack. Again on Fuji Film I have a dedicated microphone port and then I use the USB. USB Seaport for the headphones. Okay. That's cool. I'm not exactly sure how this works. One thing I do know, and if you guys saw my post that I put on digital story on Sunday, is that I really think you need an external mic. If you're gonNA, do any kind of serious video work the onboard. Mike's are nice. But you can't adjust the camera on board MICS pick. Pick up every little movement that you make, and they're just not as good as having the choice of shotgun. Mike or a hand held condenser mic or livelier Mike. That UPN I mean. You know these are options that we need. The Mike Comparison always is I. compare microphones to lenses. You know you need different lenses for different sorts of things in you need to be able to. To use different Mike's or different sorts of things. So I would say this put a bookmark at the external mic until I can figure out how it's connected. But right now, I can't tell you. That is probably not by my favorite method, which is a dedicated report, and by the way, the battery for this is the be LS, fifty, lithium battery, and of course that is included. So again, there are a few knits here, but this is a lot of camera for the money and how much money are we talking about? Well, I will tell you that the body alone will be six hundred and ninety nine dollars us. Nine, hundred, ninety, nine dollars Canadian. And then if you add the easy lands, right, which is I if you don't have the fourteen to forty two, easy. Get it. It is such a cool as I have a couple of them and I just absolutely love, them..

If you look up rob night photo, that's that's me instagram facebook. Youtube whatever! It's nice. You get the brand the brain in man. I got to comment on your background over there by the way so. Like this guy. He came on screen I was like A. Are you in purgatory? What's happening? Because I have never seen a background. Go quite that Dr as Very good just to get old fashioned black backdrop, cover up a door on bulletin board and I share my office with a six year old. Girl who loves to paint and make things with glitter and all sorts of stuff, so this is the way that I don't have to have her clean up her easel every time I do. I do. I resemble that remark very closely. All Right Man I'll let you get back to your day. Thanks for taking the time out on this Friday, to Philipson and sort of set the record straight as much as you. Could. You know without being privy to sort of boardroom conversations? I appreciate you coming on being sold open about it and definitely invite his open for you to come back onto to talk about microphone thirds, and your your mindset around shooting Olympus over other brands. Etc. Sure my pleasure man. Thanks for having me. I I I would advise people to just go ahead and read. You can read the the letters of intent. You can read know there's so many things that are officially from Olympus that. Make so much more sense than just the wild goofy speculation about you know. They're shutting the doors and getting out of the camera business 'cause they haven't said anything like that. If that happens, I don't know, but they haven't said anything like that. Yeah Yeah, and if your, if your photographer? I would imagine that shoots Olympus. In. Worst case scenario is, they would be closing the doors, or whatever which is not the case, but if that's your big worry that that this company's going out of business and It's not like they leave. An F. stops shutter speeds. ISO's suddenly change in shift. It's like lenses aren't GonNa Crack in the bandwagon yeah. Take Your Lynn's every week and fill it up with lens fluid. It's not light is still going to behave the same way and will take your your gear. You'll be fine, and if it's not fine, you know by different camera. You know it's not a big deal. Good out all right rob night. Man, you have a you have a good weekend I'll talk about there's..

"Speculate I'M NOT GONNA I'm not GonNa do that. Because I I. I think I think micro four thirds will live and die with Olympus it that way I think however Olympic goes. I think that's how the format logo. Interesting, interesting! Okay, all right well we'll. We'll continue that part of the conversation when we have the discussion about rob. Night's journey you in the microphone. And all that Let's before we in this. Let's take some questions because I'm looking at the Chad here. There's a bunch of folks in here. Thanks everybody for coming Let's see a low based guys in their little based guy. Lee Bring Him onscreen. Base Guy says. Uninformed expert is my middle name so. As a long little name. A. Chuck let's see. Chuck alw- ICK is in here. Let me read shucks comment. He says the new company J.. Ip has bought fourteen companies in their history. The have never all cats restructured or continued development of new products. They've always all caps just sold off the assets What do you think about that? So is this is this is where. Who knows. If they bought the the Olympics imaging division, and sold it to somebody else who continue to make cameras who cares? Right so you don't care like who care we it's. It's not even a case of how the sausage is made right it's. Do you care what the underlying business stack to get you? Your camera is yes or are. You Capturing light pixels and messing with them on your computer. Do you really care that? brought. The company sold these assets. This is all you care about is. Are they continuing to iterating and make the platform better right? Right and my my favorite example is Harley Davidson is owned by sake. I believe. Still by Davidson's. IDEA. I don't know I. Don't know when that. I just saw that. In fact when somebody's post, the other day was the the example was that there's lots of companies that are not just what they used to be, you know. These these big brands like Harley Davidson stuck out to me. That's a huge brand all American. I I if I ever. Ever, buy another motorcycle. It'll be Harley Davidson because of their history because of the bikes that I've had that, that's. Just how I roll! Because as human but But. They're not owned by like. You know it's not like Bobby Olympus owns. Olympus you know what I mean like. We're who runs. The company is not as important me as the quality of what they make an and you know. I would imagine we're GONNA. Continue to see a lot of this kind of shifting around assets and consolidation etc over the next several years as a result of this this whole pandemic in you know all the stuff that's going on in two thousand, twenty twenty is is kind of shaken a lot of stuff people that were on the bubble, the bubble in a lot of ways, a lot of businesses or not reopening. There's a Lotta restructuring a lot of new jobs and a lot of jobs that went away. So it's a sea change. I think in a lot of industries included, agree A couple of questions here before we wrap this guy up, thank you mark for that question by the way let's see. Oh, here's another comment from mark and we bring this up. So mark has letters of intent me. Nothing I can intend to be a millionaire, but that doesn't mean it will happen all they have to do is the economy changed in their off the hook? Yeah. There's a letter of intent. Is Yeah I intend to. Live in Malibu on the side of a cliff and have an iron man suit at some point, but you know the reality is not always the case, but in this case like you were saying rob, it's more of it could be just a due diligence that if you if you are moving in that direction part of that due diligence due diligence, check box is to make a public announcement that this is your intent, so that's the way I read it and everything from the Home Office says that nothing that we're doing is going to change. At least until this is like, this is not like okay, we're. We locked the doors and and the officers closed. It's not that even in the slightest bit so. Yeah. See All right? Cool all right, so let's take another question here. This one's from Stephen Sheriff up Steven Steven says if I were to offer a hypothesis, the move is to provide gip. The move is to provide GIP to sell off most important assets which is the imaging products. Products so sounds like he's saying they're. GIP is buying this with the intent to to liquidate to who knows again. We don't know that's. Wild wild speculation for sure. Maybe death maybe do. What humans do we wildly speculate in some? Someone's always going to be right, right? That's right. That's right. Let's see Peter j whole, says what about the video usage that won't just disappear can't see microphone thirds. Going as a format. I don't know. I, don't know. I don't know. Yeah. Stephen also says a Kawasaki Harley in twenty fourteen. I know that I did not know that well. Yeah! On on onward cycle forums were. Tripping out and oh? This shakes company. Everything is going to hell I'm sure I'm sure the. Guy In the chat is warning you not to get me started talking about motorcycles and that's. You do not want to give me started. Because don't get me started talking about the triumph. Bonneville Barbara I'm just saying. I know well. We were GONNA. Get that together. Man do a road trip last year. We didn't get that. Is because I haven't pulled trigger bike yet. Because all this craziness, they shut the country now I don't know. Did you hear about that right? You heard about that? Goes, pretty socially distance man I. It is stop and then you gotta stuff so. People have spikes and do a movie about it. Okay this looking at the questions all right. Cool I think that's that's the most of the 'cause. You guys have any other questions. While we wrap up I'll get those in, but that's mostly the substantive questions in there. So before we wrap this up, we're at about the thirty going on a thirty minute mark. So what are the Future facing things for we'll, we'll end it on the limpets on the Olympus Note, but the future facing things for rob night. Like what's going on in your world. You're working on your always busy. You'll like one of the James Brown of photography. You're always working the hardest working man in the photography business. What's on your plate player yet? I'm lucky enough to be working with Eddie. Tap Right now on a on a project. It's kind of. It's not a secret, but we're I'm helping Eddie with some things That's been a real treat because Eddie tapper. Those of.

"There's no such thing as Olympic's cameras or None of this says. we like. We were talking before we went on the air. Even the BBC Olympus quits the camera, business or shutter. Now nobody said we're quitting. The camera business will either comes from the headlines and guilty, too because I saw I forget was an imaging us some some some photography website that I cover or that. I follow I saw the headline. Olympics exit exits the camera, business, or something like that and. All I did was quickly. Scan the first few lines like Oh. Okay Olympics is over, and then I didn't create a poster, a show or anything. That's what the purpose of this thing is, but I put a post in our community that said that right, and so it which perpetuates the okay I'm lazy quote, pseudo journalists. They didn't dive in deep enough to read the facts so guilty as charged so so you know looking at that and reading through that the they could change the name right, but why would they I mean from your from your perch? Why would you? There's not a whole lot of negative baggage associated with the Olympus Brand. In fact, it's got a lot of gravity to it. Do you think that they would change it? I can't imagine that they would. I. Don't know why I like. You said it's a they've been making cameras for I think eighty seven years. That's that's that's a pretty big deal, but you know it thinking out what used to be Minolta, and then it was Konica. Minolta and then Sony, bought it and got rid of that brand, and then they basically invented full frame airless cameras with with technology that they got in that so true. There's no telling where you know trying to speculate about what's going to happen. Positive or negative is saying well the weather in January next year in Cupertino is. Sixty five degrees and you know you can go based on what's happened before, but that doesn't mean that that's going to be accurate, you know. Yeah. I know look at. Oh, everything that I'm that I'm reading is that everything's going to be business as usual through the end of this year? For, a limited? Does. What goes on past that there's GonNa depend on what happens. With this and the thing is. They're in their announcing that they're in talks to do this. Right out announcing that this the thing that was the only thing that was like. Strategically and I'm no. No No. Business, savant but at the same time I'm like. Why would you would announce your intentions? Why would you like saying? Hey, you know. I'm intending on going to speak to the women over there and I may marry her. You know I would say. I already did it or hey, we're married like why. Why announce your intentions to do something? Is that leave a back door in case? Or to pressure the other company. You know to execute on this agreement. Because now it's already public and they'll have it on their face if if it doesn't go through. I'm not a business avant, either but I know that the the the linked letter of intent is on the Olympics. Investor Relations website I assume based on the way that it's everything's worded in the way that it set up is that they have to do this for their investors? Because it is a publicly traded company, they have to announce. Hey, we're thinking about doing this. or The in better that? Way. Right. Yeah, yeah, so I don't know that's what I would imagine in. None of us knows right so and I think the good news is even if it's completely doom and gloom right even if the world was okay, if the news was Olympics has gone away completely, tigger it out people that already bought Olympus which is not the case. It's not like your cameras. Start working tomorrow or the next day the next year or the next decade. There's still going to work. People have Olympus cameras that they bought decades ago. Still Work Great today that's. That's I. Don't think that's a huge concern. It's more of a concern in these kinds of circles when you're surrounded by a bunch of photographers that are you know? Breathing each other co two and. regurgitating the news and getting excited about this bad thing happened. Let's talk about so. But looking forward as we wrap this up looking forward in in this whole industry there's. It's been a constant since microphone thirds and four third showed up right. It's been microphone. Thirds isn't as good as full frame low light. You know it's an is getting low. Lying in Boca is not. You can't get good Boko with these cameras, and they don't focus etc, etc, full frame is the way forward and micro four thirds is dead man walking and it's just got a few loyal. What do you say that you've been shooting microphones? There has since I've known you which has been a long time, and you've created now some insanely award winning images with your gear and it hasn't seen be an issue does looking at Olympics and what their newses. From a thirty Thousand Foot View does that portend the future of of microphone thirds, or are we? For the for the long haul. I really don't know man I. I. Don't think it's a symptom of micro four thirds in particular It's certainly not like you said I make great pictures with microphone thirds cameras all the time I use it for a reason the nature photography that I. Do I've got a twelve hundred millimeter lens. That's the size of your average seventy, two hundred eight. You know that you can't give me that with. A full frame camera with a thirty five millimeter sensor. You can't give me that that's important to me. And the way that I shoot, and where is shoot, and and how I travel so. I certainly hope not. That said there's more to the Olympics system than just the microphone thirds. Size and the small lenses, and that kind of stuff should technology in that the you know from live composite, the computational photography that Olympices doing is I don't know of anybody that's doing. That sort of thing with that quality on that scale So, I hope that they continue to support the format. I completely if not, I, hope that. Whoever takes it over takes what's great about it and continues to to make continues to innovate and do amazing things. Yeah Yeah I wonder. Well, you know I'm not gonNA widely..

"This livestream real quick in the main reason. Is this big announcement that now? That Elizabeth's put out earlier this week? That triggered a lot of media outlets. Arguably mine included inside of our community to kind of talk about it as Olympic is fall in the sky's falling. It's all over for Olympus etc I. Know Rob, or I knew rob was affiliated with the company, so I sent him a quick message like rob you okay, man, what's going on and he was like dude. There's a lot of disinformation. Let me! Set you straight. ABC and I was like okay well. Would you be willing to come on and say that on the show so hopefully use the platform of whip to demystify this stuff and lucky enough he said yes, and here we are so rob night man, welcome to the show man how you doing. Hey, I'm good man. Thanks, traveling I I appreciate the opportunity to actually. Have a real conversation about all this crazy stuff. You mean versus salacious headlines. I've read a lot of expert opinions on facebook over the last few days in. It's A. Very few experts actually chiming in anything's. The you say expert opinions, you say expert opinions with with quote marks right indeed. UNINFORMED, experts agree that ABC. So. Let's listen before we dive into the let's talk a little bit about just set. The stage of who robbed night is and what your affiliation with Olympus gives us that. Give us the back story. Yeah, well I'm I'm basically photography teacher I'm from predominantly do destination photo workshops, but obviously with all this stuff. I'm not doing that so I teach photography I go to events and give presentations I go to camera stores. All all sorts of anyway I can interact with photographers and and teach photography socially nature, photography, travel, photography, and about going on a year ago, Olympus, approached me and asked me to be a part of their new. Team they have the they've had the visionaries for a while and. There's the educator team now and then the what is it explores which is their social media folks? And I'm basically a brand ambassador. That's that's what we're called. You know I'm a part of the educating which is is not a job as much as it's a relationship, you know I use their equipment to do what I do, and they understand the value of that. People come on workshop with me and they see me shooting with you know my gear and they want to go buy it and that's that's kind of you know my job, and then they send me out to do things and and you know what would have been a full spring of birding events and nature photography events. You know on behalf of Olympus was be. Sitting at my house, my kids trying to figure out what he'll do, but but that's. That's the nature of what I do I'm I'm a brand ambassador as far as Olympic is concerned. I love. I love that. Okay, so let let's let's dive in and talk a little bit about where things are today right so. On the heels of that I know you and I sort of interacting, you know we were ambassadors of different. We I still am, but you were ambassador on Panasonic side, and then made the jump over to Olympics. That's a whole `nother show. We're going to save that for a different show about the impetus and driving factors behind that decision. Which is deep I? Really I don't want to do that an injustice, but let's let's let's focus on this side so olympus right so. Looking looking at the company of Olympics, a story brand right so Olympics. Olympics I think like I think Panasonic. Especially Panasonic because microphone thirds I think Sony Canon to when I saw that news, the knee jerk reaction was Oh crap. Okay, we're losing one of these. These pillars in the industry story brand like a Kodak is folding and okay. So what's going to happen and people that are shooting at what's going to happen to their cameras? There's suddenly going to stop working. Not The case, but you know you those things go your mind. The doom and gloom hits I. Think is maybe human nature, doom and gloom first, and then the reality of what it is. It's so set that stage for. What's the reality of this announcement? Is Olympics like just? Sin And everybody in the Camera Division home and know people that have the cameras you gotta go. Buy Spare parts at garage sales now or is it? Well the first thing I want to say is that I do have a relationship with Olympic, but I'm not I'm not speaking for you. Know Olympus. Corporate when I'm talking about this and the things that I'm going on to answer that question are the things that. Mostly, what everyone else can read online? There's there's the the letter of intent that has posted on Olympus website. I have pieces of that to sort of reference and then we did as an ambassador. I do have sort of Cuban a sheet that that Olympus sent me, so that's as much insider information as as you can get. But basically they they have announced that they are going to talk to company about buying the imaging division from Olympus and Olympics makes they have an imaging division. They have medical. You know medical devices, and you know they don't only make cameras. So what they're talking about is taking the camera business and selling it to this company and Japan Ajay. Ip and You know I've heard all sorts of people will. GOP has done this with this company. And this that company and I'm not an expert. On JP I have no idea about that I. Know What they've what Olympus said specifically. Basically Olympus has lost money in the camera division for the past three years according to this document. And another thing everybody I've seen a lot of people mad about. They just said last year they weren't going to sell the camera. Division will then a global pandemic hit and sales went. You know went south for everyone in fact Olympus now. The last CPA numbers I saw Olympus outsold Canon and Sony in Japan. So. They're doing as well as anybody, but after losing money according to this document again after losing money for three years. There they want the camera business to keep going so in order to do that. They're going to sell that part of the division. To this day, Ip Company and this I thought this was interesting. This is Olympic. Statement. The Olympics considers that by carving out the imaging business and operating the business with Jay Ip. The imaging businesses corporate structure may become more compact, efficient and agile. and. It is the most appropriate realize it's self, sustainable and continuous growth. So, this is not we're getting out of the camera business. The way I read it, this is we want to continue the camera business and this is how we can do it. This is the best way to do it this is. A lot of that you know. Some of the the doom and gloom intimate is coming from the you know. What was it? Was it a year ago or two years ago, there was a there was a lot of that corruption and stuff that happened in Olympia corporate that people are like what the heck is going on in that company over there, so you're that and that's. That's sort of the last news you have in your head aside from some pretty cool camera releases, and then the next corporate news we year is. They're selling the camera division. So you draw the you connect the dots and it's like okay. You know what what's happening over. There is the lifeboats being dropped, or is this just kind of changing the course of the ship? As to deep analogy mode winning. Then you and I talked when we were talking the other day there's a big difference between selling company and closing a business. Those are dramatically different things so again from what I'm reading. They WANNA, keep the the camera business killing, and this is the way the best way they know to do that. And another like they. They haven't named the new company. I would assume that they would use the name Olympus, but I don't know new company will succeed and maintain the research and development functions and manufacturing functions globally etc CETERA. To continue to offer high-quality EILLY reliable products, and also to continue to provide support to imaging and imaging solution products that have been distributed by Olympus..

"And develop them and then have them ready to hand off to j Ip so J.. Ip can come out with a bit of cash once they have formally acquired the imaging division. So that's kind of the business and of all of that now in terms of my thoughts, about what does this mean for micro four thirds? Should I be worried? She sell your gear and all that kind of stuff I don't think so I honestly. As long as innovation is happening and products are coming out. I think it's worth watching and you know there is a possibility. That, this could go better. Than it has for the last three years. That possibility is there. I see it as a challenge, and as by no means a slam dunk that things will be better, but I do see it as a possibility I also see it as a possibility that things could more or less stay the same at the same rate, and another thing that I'm very curious about is. Is Jay Ip going to reach out to Panasonic. ORS Panasonic to reach out to Jay Ip. And are they going to say hey? This is a whole new thing now. Maybe we could renew our partnership, our spirit of cooperation, and really do something wonderful, because and I mentioned this an article. I don't think Panasonic is going to dominate the full free market I. Just don't you know I? Their product? Offering is good. The lenses are fine all that. But we look at how strong Sony is right now. We see Canon surging right now. And we see Nikon. Quite honestly very nervous right now, which means that they're gonNA. They're gonNA. Put it all out on the table as well. And I just don't see Panasonic being able to overcome all of that and be able to hang their hats solely on the full frame. You know situation that they have the product line that they have at the moment. I! Don't think that's GonNa Happen. So, if Panasonic is going to stay in the photography business I think they have to continue to nurture and develop the microphone thirds business because they have a head of steam there. They have a potentially good partner in J P, and they have a lot of stuff. It's very nice product lineup now only Panasonic's in their lenses and bodies, and so forth, but all the stuff that has been produced by Olympus. And there's a niche there. There's a market there you know we all can attest to that that many of us really like merely photography and especially Marco for third meritless photography. So I think it's in Panasonic's best interest to try to work with a new entity, and that could produce some very interesting results. The other thing I will say is that we have investments in lenses. All of us that are in micro thirds photography. Those lenses are fabulous. I mean they really are great and I think that there will be new bodies in addition to the bodies? We already have for us to use those lenses on. So, let's just take the absolute worst case scenario, which has no more microphones cameras wherever made Panasonic decides to bow out J. IP never gets off the snide and produces something, and we are left with our one mark threes in our pen fs, and our E. M., five mark threes, and all that sort of stuff. Those cameras will still go quite a while, and there are still many many many of them out there, and I think I mean you can still buy a pen. F a new Paneth to this day. So I think that you know. We're GONNA be fine in terms of the tools, and that is far and away the worst case scenario. That I don't see happening. You know we just had a new camera. Come out new micro four thirds camera Panasonic. Now it's not one that I'm crazy about because it's directed more toward blogging and video and all that. But. That also shows that Panasonic is trying to keep micro four thirds current because I read an interview today as a matter of fact with Sony. On DP, review and Sony is saying hey, look video is happening right now. We have to be competitive in the video field. If we're going to stay relevant and that's why you know. Our cameras are going to be very good at. We're looking at things about being produced raw video and all that. So the fact that Panasonic came out with a camera that maybe some of those weren't absolutely crazy about, but it was a camera. That based on market research says they should come out with right now. And that is encouraging to me so I'm not worried about my microphone. Thirds Investment at all I'm going to continue to shoot with the gear that I have a continue to answer questions the best that I can about Micra third, Sotogrande FY, and Olympus and Panasonic and J Ip. And I'm going to continue to make the best images possible. You haven't really heard a dark cloud from me. There's just a lot of different ways. This thing's going to go I'm going to stay on top of it. I'll keep reporting to you, but I think the thing that we should do right now is just enjoy the heck out of our gear. Cross our fingers at J., IP. You know really picks up the baton and continues to run with it, and then I say parallel to that that Panasonic Njit Ip find a good working relationship and let's see. What we have to work with what we have shoot with what products are announced in twenty twenty one. Islas fourteen will let you add.

"Provide support for the imaging solution products that have been distributed by Olympus now it again. Try to create new stuff. Much in the spirit of what Olympus has done to this point that they're also going to step in and service and maintain and do all that kind of stuff as well so it's a two parter. So? Let's take a closer look at you. Know the actual three parts of the transfer of the outline for the transaction, and by the way by using the term new co that means we don't really know yet. What the name of this new company created by J IP? In in the spirit of working with Olympic is going to be called yet, so. We're just calling IT NEWCO new company. until they figure that out so I mean they still have a lot to figure out right? So anyway, here's the first part structure. Olympus imaging business will be transferred to the NEWCO. By way of companies split or otherwise, and then shares in the new co will be transferred to a new company to be established by J IP okay so. J. IS GONNA to set up this new company and the Imaging Divisions GonNa be transferred over to it and boom. Add Water, and you've got something new. They're. Scheduled to be signed by September thirtieth twenty twenty, so the definitive agreement is scheduled to be signed by September thirtieth. And then Olympic njit's strive to close a transaction by December thirty first two thousand twenty there. It is there it is so we will know by the end of the year if this is a go or not, you know now one last thing that they add here. Is that prior to the closing of the transaction. Olympus plans to implement structuring reforms to the imaging business. Aiming to change the business structure of the imaging business to be more profitable and sustainable in other words they wanna get it in shape before they carve it out and handed off to j Ip whatever company. J. P. is going to create to run it. So they are currently investigating costs and other impacts of the structuring reform. So, that's what they're looking at right now now I can tell you one concrete. Of this and this just happened recently. For the longest time Olympus worked with a PR firm on the East Coast to manage all sorts of stuff for them. I mean they really did a lot of work. And there were a number of people from the PR firm assigned to the Olympics account. And you know they're the ones that coordinated you know the press junkets and you know helped with advertising a whole bunch of stuff. Will just recently and I mean just recently? Olympus brought in house all those activities in terminated. You know their partnership with the PR. Firm Insane. The was wasn't that the PR firm did anything they didn't like or that. Their performance wasn't up to snuff, but we know now that this is one of those steps that they're talking about to tighten the belt and to be lean and mean for the. Over to j Ip and I think there's GonNa be a lot of things like that now. How does that affect you and me well? It's hard to say I mean I. think that bringing all the PR. Activity in house doesn't really affect your me that much right. It's tough for the PR firm. It's going to be a lot of extra work for the same people who are at Olympic instead of being liaisons. They now have to do all this stuff. And their future is uncertain. They might have to do all the stuff, and then they may be. Let go after the acquisition so in that scenario. That doesn't affect you a me very much, but it does affect those people where we're going to see the effects more have to do with the release of new products. I can't imagine that we're going to see a lot of new stuff between now and September thirtieth I, really can't, and if you think about the product cycles feels like what Olympic did. was that up until this announcement? They should up all the product lines, so we have a new em one. WE HAVE THE NEW EM X. They released the new em five right. They you know they did a lot of stuff where they go. Okay, our product portfolio is a pretty much. You know up to snuff now. We've got the new cameras out. No one sitting around going. When is the next five gonNA come out or wins the next. One GONNA come out. They've come out there. They're ready to shoot with right now. The Lens Portfolio is looking very good, so I think that they're fine right now. They're you know. The product portfolios probably GonNa stay more or less where it is. That does impact us because I think you know you know what you have or what you were thinking about. Buying is going to be it for a bit. I would be surprised to see any new product announcements in twenty twenty. If there's something in the works. that may get handed off to j Ip. The IP finish it off and come out with a bang in twenty, twenty, one with a cool new camera, or upgrade to something, or you know the ten F mark to or you know whatever whatever it happens to be. I think that they want to save that for J., IP. And I know that that period is very interesting. This pre that we're talking about right now. During the memo of understanding, because there are specific things conditions that have to be met during that period in for the sale to happen. We see some of these here, but we don't see all of them. And I suspect that some of them are that Olympics in this period of time will continue to work on their products and their technologies, and all this stuff they have in the pipeline..

The world is not going to end for microphone thirds photography all right though it. We'll start with that, and then we'll go from there I think the first place I. WanNa Start with is with a note that I got directly from Olympus, and it was a nice little sort of summary of what's going on. And then I'm GonNa get into the actual memo of understanding and Because there's some real key points there and then we'll have. A little bit of commentary after that, but let's deal with what has actually been written i. so here we go. This was the note that I got very early in the process and I quote as you are aware. The imaging industry has experienced market declines for several consecutive years. The market is contracting as the smartphone industry grows, and competition has been steadily increasing in the murless interchangeable lens camera segment, due to these long term as well as recent market contractions due to covid nineteen. The Olympus Imaging. Business Unit has signed a memorandum of understanding with Japan. Industrial Partners J, Ip. According to the IMO you, the memo of understanding both companies are entering into further discussions about the potential transfer of Olympus Longstanding imaging business to j Ip by the end of twenty twenty. Okay that right there. Says a lot as anyone in business knows when there's a memo of understanding, that's the first part that's where you're trying to work things out. You know. Both sides said we want to do this. We have some details of work through, and that's what we're going to be doing right now. Okay back to the words by lettuce. During these discussions, Olympus imaging operate business as usual, and we'll continue to deliver innovations to our customers launching new products as planned. Olympus Njit are committed to providing our stakeholders full transparency about our intentions as plans solidify. Right as they solidify, they haven't solidified yet. And then they go on in this note to me for more details, you can see the corporate disclosure and that information and we're GONNA go to that next, but I wanNA comment on this so first of all they have entered into the period of discussion about the transfer of the carving out of the imaging division to J. Ip. Now I think probably most people believe including Olympus and P. that this will go through right. This is going to happen, but we don't know the exact details yet. If it does indeed go through, and by the way, sometimes, these deals don't go through. Okay, they don't go through sometimes, because as you get further and further into the details of things with side goes. You know this sounded like a good idea, but now I'm not so sure all righty, and so that still could happen, so let's go to the memo of understanding. and. This was published by Olympus. On June twenty fourth twenty twenty. And it is you know from their executive officer and all that so official news release signing of memo of understanding for divestiture of. Business as the title of it. And I'm kind of going through here and you know they start out and the they're talking about carving out the imaging business and. You know they want to have. All the details worked out by September thirtieth twenty twenty, so they have that upfront. And then they get into the background and purpose of the transaction itself. which you know, we can guess what's going on here i. get down into the second paragraph of this section. And they write. Despite all such efforts Olympus imaging business recorded operating losses for three consecutive fiscal years. Up to the term ending in March twenty twenty so three years in a row of operating losses. Despite their innovation despite their belt tightening despite doing you know the kind of stuff that they thought might be able to stem the red ink, and they were unsuccessful in doing that three years of operating losses, then they go on under such circumstances. Olympus consider that by carving out the imaging business and by operating the business with Jay Ip. The imaging business corporate structure may become more compact, efficient and agile in it is the most appropriate way to realize self, sustainable and continuous growth into to bring values to the users of our products as well as our employees working in the imaging business. Therefore, they decided to sign the Memorandum of Understanding for the transaction. I think this is very important, and I see this in business a lot when you're a big company as Olympics is, there becomes. A lot of weight in the middle of the company, and sometimes even in the upper middle parts of the company I saw it when I was with low pro, and you know you go well. Why does this bag that costs? You know two dollars and thirty cents to make. Have to sell not should sell, but has to sell for fifty eight dollars. Well. There's a lot of reasons for that in some of that. Is that corporate structure that costs a lot of money now I think despite all the efforts by Olympus. It's tough to change that corporate structures tough to change that culture, because it's not just the imaging business. They have all sorts of other things going on. And sometimes it's much easier to go to a leaner company or to transfer the assets or the sell, the assets to a leaner company that has already conquered or never got that heavy in the middle and the upper parts metal. And then let them run your business or your former business in a leaner way. That's a very real thing, and I think Olympus realizes that and I think that they probably shopped around a bit for a buyer. I'm not sure how many opportunities they had and all that sort of stuff, but I think that they're thinking J. Ip. is a much leaner machine and the odds of the imaging division, being successful with them in this current market. That's probably going to stay this way for quite some time. The odds are better with imaging division, being with J. P. then stain with Olympus okay. That very well may be true. That very well may be true, and they go on to talk about Jay Ip that here they say, J. Ip has strong track records in supporting strategic carve outs that realized growth potential in encourage autonomous growth by adding support from JP, the NEWCO as the successor of reputable brands such as MD in Zuko. Will utilize the innovative technology in the unique product development capabilities which have been developed within a lettuce. And we'll realize continuous growth of the business by bringing better products and services to the users and customers, and by making itself a productive and rewarding workplace for some employees. So this is then. A little bit of the nervousness comes in right because. Sounds like a great idea on paper probably looks like a great idea, but there isn't. A track record that we know of. That doesn't mean there isn't one this means. There's not one that I know of I should say to point to and say yeah. This is like the Olympics carve out, and it had a happy ending. We don't have one of those that I'm aware of right now, okay? So what they're saying is that NEWCO will succeed and maintain the research and development functions and manufacturing functions globally. As reformed. Contemplated structuring reforms to continue to offer high quality, highly reliable products, and also to continue to.

Narcissus and Echo

"Narcissus and Echo. Once upon a time in ancient Greece there was a young man named Narcissus. From the minute he was born. It was clear to everyone that he was no normal baby. The ancient gods of Mount Olympus had gifted him with a beauty beyond measure. He was the cutest baby anyone had ever seen, and his cheeks were nearly perpetually pink from all the pinching. As, he got older. He only grew more beautiful. His hair was the gentle tumble of a hidden waterfall over golden stones. His eyes were piercing moons that sets way to the tides of your mind. His smile was pure and bright and radiant like the hot white son of a midsummer's Day flooding. You with warmth. Yes, young narcissists was blessed by the Gods with beauty. But if you're not careful, even a blessing can turn into a curse. For narcissists. It started when he was just a teen people noticed his beauty. They wanted to be married to him. They wanted to be him. They just wanted to be close to him and to make him happy. Unfortunately, all of that positive attention went right to his head. Before Long Narcissus was convinced that not only was he a beautiful handsome, strapping image of a man. He was the most beautiful the most handsome, and that he was simply the God's gift to the world. People would ask him to be friends to walk with them in the woods or play with them at their games and Narcissus would laugh in their faces. You want me to play with you. He would say I'm a work of art and your just well. You enjoy my beauty from afar. Shout your praises, but don't come to close or else I'll have to see how much uglier you all are, and it will ruin my day. This was of course, a terribly rude way to behave, but because narcissus was so incredibly beautiful, he usually managed to get away with it. This is the thing that happens sometimes, and it's not fair, but don't worry in this case. Bad behavior will not be tolerated for long. For, Narcissus, it was one long summer when he couldn't get any rest everywhere, he went. People called out to him. Narcissus Mary Me Dr. CICIS let me sculpt you nor Souza's let me just have a kiss and I can die a happy man. On and on they came, and as much as narcissus love to be admired. He hated the common people to him. It was just wildly unfair that he had to look at their average faces while they got to stare at an absolute one of a kind genuine work of art. In his mind, he decided a perfect world would be populated by him and him alone beautiful and perfect without anyone to bother him. But seeing as that was impossible, narcissus decided to take a break. One beautiful. Sun Drenched Day. He packed bag and hiked away into the forest near Mount Olympus. Out here, there was no one to bother him. There were no average faces to be annoyed by deep in the woods. Narcissus confined only be alone with his beautiful self. or so he thought in Ancient Greece even in the deep dark depths of the enchanted woods, there were creatures ready to fall in love creatures who looked familiar, but not quite human, and one of them was watching Narcissus already scrambling from branch to branch after him nimble as a squirrel, the creature was a Nymph, and her name was echo. NYMPHS are spirits of the forest, and they're always curious about human travelers. They were considered very beautiful in own right known to stop people in their tracks with just a glance acco was even more beautiful than most she had dappled skin that blushed light, pink and dark, purple like flowers, her eyes sparkled like the stars on the seas, and her hair was a wild mass of flowing green. Eco was beautiful, but she had also been cursed by the Gods in punishment for some trouble she. She had caused for Zeus and his many wives echo lost the gift of speech

5 Ways to Improve Your Videoconference Presence

"Needless to say I've had some interesting online conversations over the last couple of months. I have seen parts of people's houses that I really wasn't prepared for and then there has been a mix of interesting lighting in tin can audio. Yes it has been the wild wild west. So what I've decided to do is take the microphone by the horns and do two things for my contribution to the greater video conferencing world. I I have some tips today. That are easy to enable and that with a little adjustment here or there you should be able to enable. You should be able to use these pretty quickly second later this week. I'm releasing a new online workshop. Called the essential steps to impressive video conferencing. It's a one hour movie that covers audio video and environment and I really get into some cool tips now. I'll talk more about this later in the show. But I'm GonNa tell you right now. That is free to our inner circle members who support this podcast on patron for right now. Let's get to those five tips already tip number one get the to Kia. Yes and you probably want wine. Do you want me to and I'm thinking more like Ikea. Dot Com right because shopping inside care right. A lot of places probably just isn't going to happen but I can't dot com is doing well and if you go to the search box on in enter diffused lighting. You'll get a variety of lamps and lampshades. That are exactly what you need one way or another one of. Them's going to be something that you need now. What is the deal with this Derek? Well here's the deal that the lighting on so many of these calls that I'm watching is terrible. The light tends to be too harsh the wrong color. You all sorts of things and really. What I'm seeing is that people really aren't thinking about. How do I get a flattering light on my face? Which should be really kind of at the top of the list like this. I don't WanNa look terrible. When on these webcams alrighty so how do I look better well? The rule for portrait photography applies to video conferencing as well which is the larger the light source right in the closer to your face the softer the light. And then if you position that light so this more or less you know coming straight on to your face you know. That's what we call fashion lighting and it is very flattering. There's a reason why fashion photographers use it. It makes people look pretty so going back to Ikea if you shop on Kia and you shop. Four diffused lighting. You'll see these lamps and all sorts of goodies that you can accessorize your desk with in suddenly. Look a ton better and the reason why I pick you could get these all sorts of places. But they're actually quite affordable so you get a very attractive desk accessory now and you will look much more attractive on camera if you follow this tip. Now here's the other part of that tip which is get something that's daylight balanced or s close to daylight balanced as possible and again. This is another mistake that I see so often. Which is if you have a tungsten lightbulb shining on you. You're going to be orange. And if you have fluorescent tubes eliminating your mug you're GonNa be Green and neither of those really make great colors for face right so you want a daylight balance tube or as close to daylight as you can get so two parter. One diffused lighting coming straight on and be second part of one. Get as close to daylight balance as you can already. That's tip number one. Here's tip number two. It's called Darling. You Look Marvelous now. Unfortunately those built in seven twenty p Webcams for many laptops and desktops. Just aren't very flattery. And I would go so far as to say that. They are often terrible cracks me up. I have a a state of the art macbook pro thirteen inch. This is a gorgeous machine. It does everything a beautifully except for one thing except for one thing it has that lousy seven twenty p facetime camera that when I turn it on and I look at me I do not feel good. Do not feel plus. They can't control it It has way too much depth of field. I can't control exposure. I mean just goes on and on these things are agonizing and especially for those of us who like photography their double agonizing. So we've got to get away from those now. There are a couple of things you can do. If you have a cam link already which is a digital interface that allows you to connect your digital camera to your computer. You have a lump of gold right now because they are hard to find the ones that I really like are the ones who made by El Gato however if you do a little searching online and you search for video digital interface there are some other ones and there's one right now that's fairly affordable from e can get h Made by I o gear. I think it's like ninety nine bucks That people are saying works. Pretty well and the supply of those seem to be you know pretty regular. I know that this is probably the one thing that many people don't have but is the one thing that many people should get in especially in our audience because our audience as full of people who have these beautiful Sony Olympus Panasonic Fujifilm Nikon Canon cameras right. If you have a cannon camera by the way cannon just came out with some software that you can use and you don't have to get the digital interface and just play your cannon camera in so if you're a canon shooter you may want to check that out

"olympus" Discussed on The Digital Story

"After spending four days in Costa Rica and continuing shoot with a camera. Simpson Dan I can comfortably say that. I have a good feel for the Olympics. D M One. Mark Three is neither mono- from heaven that many users hoped-for nor is it. The disappointment that some reviewers have complained about. It's a solid semi professional camera for Nimble photography that's only limited by the users imagination. I'll explain my views on today's TVs photography podcast. I hope you enjoy the show so I was lucky enough to be part of a review experience. put on by limps that sent journalists from DP Review Imaging Resource Pedal Pixel and gadget and so forth to Costa Rica to test. The M one mark three. Now the only rule was that we didn't violate the embargo in other words. We didn't talk about the camera before we were supposed to Which was really unfortunate timing for me because they lifted the embargo on Wednesday morning about one. Am and you know. The podcast publishes Tuesday so I just missed it by that much but you know as it turned out. I'm kind of happy about that now because we've all had a chance to look at the various reviews of the em one. Mark Three by the other folks on the bus and now I get a chance to sort of talk about some of the issues that they brought up so it all worked out right. It all worked out. There was a moment on the bus and I was talking with a fellow journalists that I realized how the reviews were going to go for the camera. He was disappointed with the not updated censor As are many reviewers the comparatively low resolution. Lcd is one million dots. The non state of the art of Electronic Viewfinder two point three six million dollars the lackluster performance of AF tracking. And what they said was the relatively high price for a small sensor camera which is one thousand seven hundred and ninety nine dollars. Those are some of the things that I was hearing on the bus and I wasn't hearing a lot of discussion about the other aspects of the camera of which there are many so I'm going okay. So my approach was while I was there. I'm not an apologist for Olympus nor any other brands so I didn't feel the need to defend the camera or defend them or really defend anything. But I did offer a few tips because I have experienced with the mark to with the pen. F with practically every Olympus camera in the Mirror era. I just left it at that. Offered my tips and left it at that. But I decided what I would do is lead off this review addressing those five comments and again. There are things that we have seen in reviews published over the last week. Then we'll get onto the stuff that I like so I guess the way the mood that I'm in today. Is that as a kid? There were nights where I just ate the vegetables I the soggy cauliflower the Stinky Broccoli. You know whatever it happened to be just get it out of the way and then. I could really enjoy the mashed potatoes and hamburger okay. That's what I'm GONNA do today. We're going to have some overcooked cauliflower. I already now before I get into the specifics. I do want to make a general comment. About Olympus the Olympic mindset that I've learned over the years of working with them in their cameras and what they do as in my opinion is they take a very holistic approach to the devices they build and they will live and die by those choices in other words. I never got the feeling that they were looking so much at the individual components the sensor or the electronic viewfinder whatever in isolation in other words them saying we have to. Have you know the top of the Line Electric Viewfinder in our flagship camera? We have to the top of the line. Lcd If the have you know a brand new sensor every time. I never got the impression from them that that's the way that they think the way that I see them working is that they designed the camera and they're looking at the whole camera. They're looking how everything works with each other in the camera and interacts with the system. And what they WANNA do is create an experience that I think is unique to what other manufacturers are making. I don't feel that they are individual component driven as much as they are experienced driven and I sort of sum up the Olympus Approach to photography with what I call the three CS. Now these are mine. Not There's however I will live and die by three CS just like they will buy their cameras and I think there's design. Principles are driven by compact creative and capable. Those are the sort of words that I kind of here here and there from them and that I get when I work with their devices so keeping those three C.'s. In mind compact creative incapable. Let's take a look at some of the complaints or the most common criticisms of the mark. Three at the top of the list is the non updated twenty point. Four megapixel live moss micro four thirds sensor when Olympus debuted this sensor in September two thousand sixteen and that was in the em one mark to is scored the highest according to the EXO mark of any for third sensors Edging out the Panasonic Competition and the twenty point three sensor that they had just launched in the NF earlier in the year so it was the top of the line. Four third sensor in September two thousand sixteen when it came out now that same twenty point four chip is in the M one mark three but the difference is that the mark three has a true pick nine image processor compared to the true pick eight found in the and one mark to and in fact even in the an one x they are true pick eight processors but there's two of them so there's a there's a little horsepower there right but They are true. Pick eight and nine so at the moment the mark three is the only camera has the true pick nine in it by the way the that launched earlier in two thousand sixteen has the true. Pick seven in there now. I can say that after shooting with all three cameras. My view is that it's the processor not the sensor that we should be focusing with the mark three and I talked a little bit about this sort of stuff in last week's podcast. I mean if you think about the evolution of smartphone cameras and where the real progress is made from you know iteration to iteration a lot of that progress in the computing power in the software. Not so much the sensor itself and I think that's where the upgrade is for the mark three now would I love new sensor in the? Em One right yes. Of course I mean we always would. I'm not going to say no to. It is like saying one hundred dollars you know slipped under my front door. Of course I would. I would take that. And when they do come out with a new sensor which I know they will at some point. We'll all put on lamp shades and run around the House with arms waving in the air of course but at the moment. I don't think that this camera the mark three should live and die by this twenty megapixel sensor that has been a proven good censor. I think we should look however at the processor. That's powering all these unique functions that this camera can do so you know. That's my take on the non updated sensor. Yes I would love to have a new sensor. I am not crestfallen because we don't next complaint. The three inch one point zero three seven million dot very angle touchscreen. I heard a little bit of carping about this and you know I will agree that reviewing images on the mark three is not quite as lovely as let's say the Sony a seven Armar Four. That has a three inch. One point. Four four million dot rear. Lcd KEEP in mind a couple of things of all. There is a substantial price difference Between those two cameras and there's a trick to really getting the most out of your Olympus Lcd on the Em once series that. I think a lot of photographers don't realize and that is make sure that you start looking at your images at one to one because the default isn't one in the way that you set this up is that you go to geared. D- to default setting and then you choose equally value equally value. Means one to one so when you're looking at the LCD on the back of the camera. I think that's a seven x when you're looking through the electronic viewfinder that's five x but if you're looking at the image one to one you can really judge it's quality you can judge at sharpness. You can judge the tonal quality. You can see all this stuff that you need to see and it's quite nice when you're looking at it at the other resolutions especially the lesser resolutions. It just it doesn't look the same and I think the sampling of with the one million dot screen falls a little bit short so yes I would love to have an update a screen on. It's not a deal breaker for me. Because I'm always looking at my images at one to one and it works quite well give it a try in this works also on the em one mark to if you have one of those right now the third complaint is the two point three six million electric viewfinder on the Olympus so again. Let's compare to the flagship Sony. That has a five point. Seven six million resolution electronic viewfinder camera that? I reviewed in love. I think that the Sony is a fantastic camera but again it costs a lot more and part of that cost. I'm sure they put into that state of the art electronic viewfinder the way Olympus looks at this and I actually did talk to a technical expert on this is that they're really focusing on refresh rate. Because they feel like that refresh rate is what provides the visual experience when you look through the electronic viewfinder so the Sony is Hundred and twenty frames per second refresh rate and the Olympics. Electric Viewfinder is also one hundred and twenty frames per second with a lag. Time at a minuscule zero point zero zero five second lifetime so it is very smooth display for both video instills as you're moving around and really what they wanted to focus on is a viewfinder that provided that very smooth viewing experience so depending on your needs depending on your preferences if similar refresh rates and low latency. Get the job done for your photography. Then the resolution might not be as big of an issue. This one's really up to you. The fourth one That I heard some people complain about in that you may have read about is the continuous Af plus tracking now. This is something where I agree with the complainers really do it is too bad because this camera is a beast. When it comes to autofocus every other aspect of the autofocus I absolutely love and think is fantastic. However I think the AF plus tracking Function is not up to par. I really don't and I think in my opinion Olympus should just take it out. Don't even do it. You don't even need it so take it out but there it is and it is worth complaining about. So the way that I use it the way that I use a continuous autofocus and we were shooting a lot of birds. Costa Rica is that I use continue autofocus and They have these new groups In the and one mark three and one of the groups is called group. Nine point target mode and so is a three by three censor appoint array. That is really just a great size for moving targets is not too big to where you know it would accidentally focus on something that shouldn't but it's big enough so that if you're following a bird or something that you can keep that bird in focus and it worked great for me now. We combine it with something that I'm surprised. We haven't heard a lot more about it. Which is there's a new joystick. On the back of the camera that allows you to move the array regardless of which group? You've chosen you know you could really have the group six point or the group nine point or there's all sorts of these different groups that you can choose from you can even make a custom group that is like a you know wide and narrow. If that happens to be you're seeing but you can move it around with this joystick. That's on the back of the camera and is fantastic and of course that That joystick is not on the. Em One mark to. I will tell you that I had my best success. Rate ever with moving objects birds in the sky in Costa Rica that I've ever had ever period and a lot of it was because what I did was and I got some help and setting up my camera I use the group nine point with continuous autofocus and then I use the Jog whenever I needed to move that ray around quickly and it worked fantastic so continuous AF plus tracking. I agree. It isn't up to par. The rest of the auto focusing is crazy insane good and then finally the fifth complaint and I actually heard this. Is that the one thousand seven hundred and ninety nine dollar price tag is too much for a small sensor camera..

"Hands-On Review of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III"

"After spending four days in Costa Rica and continuing shoot with a camera. Simpson Dan I can comfortably say that. I have a good feel for the Olympics. D M One. Mark Three is neither mono- from heaven that many users hoped-for nor is it. The disappointment that some reviewers have complained about. It's a solid semi professional camera for Nimble photography that's only limited by the users imagination. I'll explain my views on today's TVs photography podcast. I hope you enjoy the show so I was lucky enough to be part of a review experience. put on by limps that sent journalists from DP Review Imaging Resource Pedal Pixel and gadget and so forth to Costa Rica to test. The M one mark three. Now the only rule was that we didn't violate the embargo in other words. We didn't talk about the camera before we were supposed to Which was really unfortunate timing for me because they lifted the embargo on Wednesday morning about one. Am and you know. The podcast publishes Tuesday so I just missed it by that much but you know as it turned out. I'm kind of happy about that now because we've all had a chance to look at the various reviews of the em one. Mark Three by the other folks on the bus and now I get a chance to sort of talk about some of the issues that they brought up so it all worked out right. It all worked out. There was a moment on the bus and I was talking with a fellow journalists that I realized how the reviews were going to go for the camera. He was disappointed with the not updated censor As are many reviewers the comparatively low resolution. Lcd is one million dots. The non state of the art of Electronic Viewfinder two point three six million dollars the lackluster performance of AF tracking. And what they said was the relatively high price for a small sensor camera which is one thousand seven hundred and ninety nine dollars. Those are some of the things that I was hearing on the bus and I wasn't hearing a lot of discussion about the other aspects of the camera of which there are many so I'm going okay. So my approach was while I was there. I'm not an apologist for Olympus nor any other brands so I didn't feel the need to defend the camera or defend them or really defend anything. But I did offer a few tips because I have experienced with the mark to with the pen. F with practically every Olympus camera in the Mirror era. I just left it at that. Offered my tips and left it at that. But I decided what I would do is lead off this review addressing those five comments and again. There are things that we have seen in reviews published over the last week. Then we'll get onto the stuff that I like so I guess the way the mood that I'm in today. Is that as a kid? There were nights where I just ate the vegetables I the soggy cauliflower the Stinky Broccoli. You know whatever it happened to be just get it out of the way and then. I could really enjoy the mashed potatoes and hamburger okay. That's what I'm GONNA do today. We're going to have some overcooked cauliflower. I already now before I get into the specifics. I do want to make a general comment. About Olympus the Olympic mindset that I've learned over the years of working with them in their cameras and what they do as in my opinion is they take a very holistic approach to the devices they build and they will live and die by those choices in other words. I never got the feeling that they were looking so much at the individual components the sensor or the electronic viewfinder whatever in isolation in other words them saying we have to. Have you know the top of the Line Electric Viewfinder in our flagship camera? We have to the top of the line. Lcd If the have you know a brand new sensor every time. I never got the impression from them that that's the way that they think the way that I see them working is that they designed the camera and they're looking at the whole camera. They're looking how everything works with each other in the camera and interacts with the system. And what they WANNA do is create an experience that I think is unique to what other manufacturers are making. I don't feel that they are individual component driven as much as they are experienced driven and I sort of sum up the Olympus Approach to photography with what I call the three CS. Now these are mine. Not There's however I will live and die by three CS just like they will buy their cameras and I think there's design. Principles are driven by compact creative and capable. Those are the sort of words that I kind of here here and there from them and that I get when I work with their devices so keeping those three C.'s. In mind compact creative incapable. Let's take a look at some of the complaints or the most common criticisms of the mark. Three at the top of the list is the non updated twenty point. Four megapixel live moss micro four thirds sensor when Olympus debuted this sensor in September two thousand sixteen and that was in the em one mark to is scored the highest according to the EXO mark of any for third sensors Edging out the Panasonic Competition and the twenty point three sensor that they had just launched in the NF earlier in the year so it was the top of the line. Four third sensor in September two thousand sixteen when it came out now that same twenty point four chip is in the M one mark three but the difference is that the mark three has a true pick nine image processor compared to the true pick eight found in the and one mark to and in fact even in the an one x they are true pick eight processors but there's two of them so there's a there's a little horsepower there right but They are true. Pick eight and nine so at the moment the mark three is the only camera has the true pick nine in it by the way the that launched earlier in two thousand sixteen has the true. Pick seven in there now. I can say that after shooting with all three cameras. My view is that it's the processor not the sensor that we should be focusing with the mark three and I talked a little bit about this sort of stuff in last week's podcast. I mean if you think about the evolution of smartphone cameras and where the real progress is made from you know iteration to iteration a lot of that progress in the computing power in the software. Not so much the sensor itself and I think that's where the upgrade is for the mark three now would I love new sensor in the? Em One right yes. Of course I mean we always would. I'm not going to say no to. It is like saying one hundred dollars you know slipped under my front door. Of course I would. I would take that. And when they do come out with a new sensor which I know they will at some point. We'll all put on lamp shades and run around the House with arms waving in the air of course but at the moment. I don't think that this camera the mark three should live and die by this twenty megapixel sensor that has been a proven good censor. I think we should look however at the processor. That's powering all these unique functions that this camera can do so you know. That's my take on the non updated sensor. Yes I would love to have a new sensor. I am not crestfallen because we don't next complaint. The three inch one point zero three seven million dot very angle touchscreen. I heard a little bit of carping about this and you know I will agree that reviewing images on the mark three is not quite as lovely as let's say the Sony a seven Armar Four. That has a three inch. One point. Four four million dot rear. Lcd

Glaciers in the Olympic Mountains could vanish this century

"To Washington's Olympic Mountains standing off glaciers that have carved the landscape but what touristy today is different from one hundred years ago back then. Blue Glacier descended from Mount Olympus like an the icy hand reaching out over the rock. Now that hand has retreated up the mountain nearby. At what was once Lillian. Glacier only snow patches remain. Gene reminds me of a birthday cake. You have this gorgeous birthday cake. And then two days later it's just crumbs. That's Andrew Fountain of Portland State University City using glacier maps and historical photos. He estimates that the glaciers of the Olympic Mountains have shrunk by about seventy five percent since nineteen hundred early in the century. Much of the melting could be attributed to natural causes but fountain says now carbon pollution is warming the climate and that's accelerating the glacier's retreat from nineteen eighty one to twenty fifteen. They shrunk about forty percents. He says without climate action their future looks grim by the end of the century. He expects the glaciers of the Olympic mountains will be gone maybe a few ice patches left and little nooks and crannies but as far as we can see they'll finish

"Thousand and one thousand nine hundred. Today's theme is the evolution of the Olympics Oh md em five mark three I'm Derek Olympus broke the news to the public the next month and we started a whole new era of murless photography now with the mark three ready to hit the streets wait I thought we'd take a look at this latest model and the eight year journey that it took to get here I hope you enjoy the show both spin a little over four years since we've been able to talk about this camera quite a length of time in between mark two and mark three but mark three is really something else I wanna do a couple of things here I I'm going to talk a little bit about the specs for the doc three just so we're up to speed on what this camera is and then I want to go back to two thousand twelve and talk about the mark one because it's an Horton camera in the world of murless photography and I think the road that we took to get here to the mark three is an interesting one and in a lot of ways really symbolizes Olympus themselves these days so I think the em five is you know the murless camera in the Olympic lineup I mean we have the the pro flagship at you know went in and then we have the pens at the other end but this camera sir really at the heart of the matter and I think it's worth spending some time not only on the mark three but the journey that took to get here so let's start with looking at this latest camera and what we have to deal with here and we have a lot so the sensor has been upgraded from the Sixteen megapixel sensor to the any megapixel sensor and that's important we need to get as much resolution as possible out of these little cameras and twenty mega pixels is great shoot with it all the time have no problems it has a true pick eight quad core processor. I'm going to touch on this more in a bit but I think this is a very important change to the mark three it has a dual fast F. A. S. T. AF so it has contrast and phase detection af one hundred and twenty-one points all cross type on chip phase detection okay that's a nice focusing awesome five axis image stabilization with up to six point five shutter speed steps compensation with sink. Is and I'm assuming I mean that sink is is when we have optical stabilization in the lands and then of course we have sensor based on the camera and the two will work together with certainly absorb such as with the three hundred millimeter Lens. Olympus makes two point three six million dot O. L. E. Electronic Viewfinder her three inch very angle touch LCD so they hung onto that from the previous model dust splash and freeze proof which I think is you know very important aspect of this camera from the very beginning okay the mechanical shutter will go ten frames per second in time out in six frames per second and low mode and the ELEKTRONIK shutter will do thirty frames per second in high mode and ten frames per second and Lomo debts moving along pretty good we have Arcadio capture now that was a question mark about the mark to I'll talk more about that thirty frames twenty five frames and twenty four frames for second with flat picture mode which is a very nice for people that want to edit their video I really love seeing USB in camera charts gene that's every camera has I just love having that option the nice thing that Olympus does however is even though it has in Cameras charging they still give you an external charger in the box much appreciated guys pro capture leg free electronic shutter mode We I saw pro capture in the em one em one mark to I believe yes so these are some pretty darn good specs and in fact a lot of people have referred to the mark three as a mini am one and I think there's really good reason for that when you look at what we just talked about here but it's evolution actually took a different path than the em one path and I really think it's worth going back to two thousand twelve to understand and the real significance of this camera the first team five was actually a fairly simple camera operate it had a modem l. on the top on the left topside and by the way I have a pictures of the mark one and Mark Two with the show notes so you can take a look at them so I had a mother die on the top left side and you know that was it on the left side and they had p. a.. SM So it had programs aperture priority shutter priority and manual there was auto their movie the scene mode and art filter options so just uh commode dial on the left side and then the right side was very sleek in the sense that there were two unmarked twin control dials with one function button in a movie button and that was it on the on the top deck there now anyone who's shot with Olympus cameras no does that you can program all those things basically the way that you want and that's what's so cool about this camera the the functionality was fantast mystic 'cause you got all right I've got these two dials on top I got a couple of function buttons and I can just sort of make this thing do whatever I want and that's exactly what I did with it and I loved it I just absolutely loved shooting with it I love the look of the mini Sol are instead of the pen look now I like the PF a lot but you have to remember up until when the m five came out we didn't have anything with this sort of look and it was you looked at that is so cool so cool what one even though you have even shot with it yet now the body was whether resistant and the handling was very comfortable had a nice little grip not a big grip like with the and one but a nice little bump to hang onto a thumb rest as well and in fact I still shoot with the EM five mark one today I it's my studio camera that I use for product shots for the film camera shop and it's great I got a little like a lens on their the little twenty five millimeter f one four Leica on their which is Lens that's on there in the pictures they put in the show notes and that thing just keeps on chugging it is a beautiful camera work with I have a couple different grips that go with it the one I have on there most of the time is the one that has the extra battery in that so I have basically two batteries available to me this is all a big deal when it came out I mean not only was there the camera itself but it had this two part grip that you could get the first part was just a a nice little grip with shutter button all that kind of stuff like what we normally see and then the second part connected to the first one art in a hat a spare battery in it so you could go a little bit bigger with a spare battery or you could go mid-size with the grip or or you could really sleek it down and have no grip at all and just go with the camera itself and having these sort of options you know say okay I'm okay with a little bigger camera because I want the extra battery because I'm going to be in the field or something like that or no I really WanNa go small and light today for street photography so I'm going to go with no grip at all at this time in two thousand twelve we're just going we're in heaven we're in heaven the small camera that's very powerful sixteen Pixel Sensor can program basically any way that I want I can afford it it was an affordable camera I believe it came out at twelve ninety nine without the grip at that time as memory recalls okay now one complaint about it in terms of functionality and we're still talking about the market one here was that the buttons were a little spongy were their little spongy and that was because of the the weather resist sent a material that Olympic built into the camera some people did not like the feel some didn't care at all I was actually in the camp where I didn't care aw I mean the buttons work great and yeah they push back a little bit they had little spongy feel when you use them but I also acknowledged that this was whether resistant material and I really wanted this camera to be weather resistant so I really didn't think about it much but some people did complain about that it had a few other little things that could have been better placed I think round one with the button placement There were some oddities they put the play the button way up at the top you know on the back and there was a very small button and it was right next to another button and there were a little hard to get to and I forget when I'm shooting with the other Olympus cameras that have the play button down in the lower part of the back panel I forget that the EM five mark one had it way up at the top When you have to kind of go do that and then it had a kind of a funky little power switch that was pretty small on the back panel that wasn't a e easiest thing to us even though I like the simplicity of the top deck I thought that was really well designed I thought that the back panel could news a little improvement again at the time before we had any other you know before we had the mark the mark three I'm not really thinking that much about it's like one of those little Oh thanks that's in the back of your mind but I'm not pining away for the next model waiting for those buttons to be redesigned 'cause you don't even know if they're going to do that right getting away with this camera I'm I'm loving it is performing really well and then in February of two thousand fifteen the mark two is released so that wasn't too bad of a way it was essentially a three years it felt a little long at the time because Oh you know we're seeing a lot of churn with digital cameras in those days you know cameras were evolving quickly and three years was felt like you know maybe a year longer than what we wanted to be but nonetheless when the mark two came out in two thousand fifteen again I really felt like saying this is worth the wait really was and this was a different camera than what we saw with the mark one and one of the things things that Olympics wanted to do with the em five mark to was make it a very good video camera now I don't know if that was out of focus groups or feedback or what but they wanted to have an excellent video camera and indeed it is it is us now there was a little bit of discussion because it didn't have four K. video and even though four K. was new at the time a lot of people we're hoping that the in five mark to would have for K. Olympus went the conservative route and went with just regular hd video but all my what beautiful hd it was so a few things that they did here to really enhance this experience replace the up and down tilting LCD with a fully articulated flip out style so again if you're shooting video it just gives you more angle else to work with the sensor based image stabilization was further refined and really excellent for video five axis stabilization re they good for video and a lot of the demos that we saw the time where people moving while recording in how well that stabilization kept the shots steady it did really a good job it was some pretty excellent stuff the top deck really got a more sophisticated got chunkier up there and they put a lot of stuff one of the things that they did that was really good as they put the on off switch over on the outside next to the Mo- dial in a nice on off switch traditional lintas on off switch the ever shot with any of their film cameras so that was a good because that little the little fiddly one on the back of the em five mark.

"I think this camera is going to be very interesting to them. Now, the third area in the last area that I wanna talk about as it relates to this cameras a little bit more squish. But I still think there's something to it. And I think one of the things that Olympics wants to do in. Remember, I have been working with Olympic cameras for a long time. I have Olympics film cameras that shoot with that. I just love I understand Olympics in a lot of different ways. And I think one of the things that they wanna do is also offer an alternative to what's going on, you know, with cannon with Nikon with Sony, and to some degree now even with Panasonic and Fuji, and I think this is something that Fuji does really. Well, also is offer an alternative offer something that's a little different than what the pack is offering and Fujii's having great success with their approach right now. And I think Olympics realizes that they will never be a cannon or they'll never be a Nikon. But I think they also believe that there will always be people. Who appreciate what they're doing? And those people will remain dedicated to the brand and say, look, I like something a little different. I don't wanna shoot cannon. I don't wanna shoot Nikon. I wanna shoot something. That's a little bit more innovative that marches to different drum, Olympus does that. So I think not only are they fine with being a niche camera brand, I think they're really embracing with this camera. I really do. I think they're really saying. Yeah, we're a little crazy. But we're brilliant. That is the third area. And believe me, I know that I could be way out on a limb with this. But somehow in my gut I also feel like I'm right about this idea of being the company that offers something different than what everyone else is offering. So that's my current thinking on this camera. I have one coming in actually being h is sending me a review camera. I'll have it for a month, and I'm going to shoot with it. And then I'll do a formal review, but what I'm really going to test. The things that I talked about today. A really wanna look at the computational photography part of it. I wanna look at the GPS part of it. I wanna look at hand held high resolution shot. I wanna look at these things that I think distinguish it from you know, what's going on out there with the other camera brands, and then I'll publish my hands on report separately. And of course, I'll let you know, the the podcast. So those of you out there that are. Olympus faithful I really think that this camera should make you feel better about what's going on. And those of you out there that have never considered Olympics. I would take a look at this camera. Just because it's crazy, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it and see for myself. I was technology is implemented..

"So if you're at an air show or something like this allowing you to do this with airplanes in race cars, and I think there's another one built in having the camera being able to not only identify faces for portrait photography, but to identify certain types of objects and then lock in on them. And then track them as they move. That is pretty cool. That was pretty cool. And since we know that Olympus is really good with firmware updates that we are going to see an expansion of all these functions that we're just now getting a taste of so having computational photography built into the camera that you already want to use the interchangeable lenses that you already like is much different than having computational photography built into a smartphone that we we all like having our smartphones with us, we all like shitting with them in certain instances. But most people that listen to this show. Also want a real camera with relentless right or at least interchangeable lenses. Let's put it that way. So this is huge now getting to the aspirational part of this. So then Olympics users or micro four thirds shooters. They see this. They see that Olympics is doing as they see that Olympics has the ability to do it now. Well, then we all know if it's going to show up in this camera, then it's going to be. Subsequent models down the road. And maybe a model that I wanna buy maybe the next pen. If you know, maybe the next EM five, which would be what Mark three, you know, maybe one of those cameras that's more in my sweet spot will have this functionality. We know they can do it as a matter of them deciding how the implemented in the different camera models. All right. So that's one of the example, another example that I think is really interesting is the hand held high resolution shot mode think about this is crazy, right? Because you know, the way that it worked was on tripod is that because they can move that sensor around. So you take a shot and moves the sensor around, and then gathers all that data then basically eases computational photography again to create one shot. Now, I saw test result. So this done by independent not by Olympus. But by an independent, and then comparing those high. Says fifty megapixel hand held shots. Two shots from cameras that cost a lot more that have much bigger sensors, and you know, cameras that we all know about into did great. It either did better in certain areas or a did easily as well. Now. Here's the difference though with hand-held. Hi, rez shot. Yes. You don't need a tripod, and you can get even better results when you do use a tripod with hiring shot, but what.

"But he felt like he had some forty to sort of make that comment, and it was a little strange. I knew there had to be at least one or two instances. You just can't be doing what you're doing without having. I'm just walking around in the world. And I get weird people coming up to me doing what I think too that I've been very lucky and being a woman, it's kind of just different you might have different photography style and approach. So when I show up to a game, I think people trust me more, especially if I'm covering youth sports. No one thinks I'm the creepy guy. And so it's easier for me to build trust with a team to to put my hand and camera in the middle of women's huddle between their legs in that sense. I'm I'm being given the benefit of the doubt by being a woman that I'm there for good reason granted, they know me, they know my photos get published thing. No, what I'm there to do some of that may be because I'm a woman some of it may. Just be their own familiarity with me, I think there is something to because when I used to do, weddings. I always made sure that my second shooter was seen mail for that very reason because there is a certain thing about the energy of a woman in if I had a woman with me when I'm doing something where people don't know me, it just goes easier, and to be honest with you a lot of times when I'm when I'm going to be out doing street photography. I love it. If my wife comes with me because she just softens the situation a little bit and yeah. And takes out that notion that creepy guy, I don't look like a creepy guy. But, but you know, and I don't act like one for sure, but definitely easier when she's there it's just easier. When I think there's something to that. There's a trade off there's backs in benefits if navigating that and working tear advantage. Absolutely agree. So you're young you're strong. You got a lot of energy right now. Is this your career? I mean, are you? I mean is this have you decided that this is what I'm to do this? I would say so I'm more than a decade now. And I've reached a lot of, you know, check marks that I wanted in my career. And so now it's exploring where I want to go next fiend. Olympus visionary is a great opportunity to start teaching and sharing some of my experiences as well as showing photographers that there is gear that is lighter and more budget friendly to make it more accessible to more people in photographing sports. I hope to be in this for the rest of my career. I enjoy it. I love it. And that's where the weight plays a big factor because I know photographers that have been doing this for decades who have taken short disability leave or had their doctor tell them they can only. Carry one camera because it's hurting their shoulders and in pain being a freelancer. I don't quite have the luxury to take time off for my body. So I need to keep my body healthy and having lighter cameras not worrying about that. And also I want to cover a football game with two lenses. I think you can and no image is worth sacrificing your body. But if you can create great images and not sacrifice your body. I think using this gear will help me have that long career helped me steak cited I think what Olympic is creating and putting out there. It was the future ten years ago when they came out with microphones Murless, and it will be the future moving forward. I very much agree with what you're saying. When vic- have the people that are thinking about photography as part of their career. I don't say anymore. You know that they wanna be photography is. I think you have to think broader than that gift to think that the Tigers could be part of my career. Maybe it'll evolve into being my full career. I don't know..
