    I really enjoy this camera. You can take this anywhere throw on a 25 or 45mm lens and you are set. Great start into the micro four thirds world.

    Worthy Next Step

    I was looking to upgrade my camera from a Nikon Coolpix P600. The Nikon worked, but I wanted more. More definition, better editing (RAW), more clarity, more options. I did my research and kept coming back to the OM-D E-M10 Mk II. I am sure glad I bought it. Positives: Lightweight - I use the same bag for this camera but have added a great 25mm prime lens. I can hike all day with this around my neck ready to shoot and not realize its there. Fantastic features - the built in Image Stabilization (IS) has paid off in spades already. Shutter say 1/40 no problem, clear as a bell no flash, Less? steady yourself a bit, you're probably okay. Drawback: Menus go on forever - There are some shortcuts, but I am not sure I will ever figure out all the menus. Not a serious issue, since I have have also gotten into post processing, so I shoot everything in RAW and JPEG - which you have to dig into the menus to turn on. But I bet if I mastered the settings my straight JPEGs would be even better, and I could share more without editing. Not weather sealed - In the pacific Northwest you need to be careful to not destroy your camera in the weather. Overall -- . A great camera and a good value. The kit lens has a pretty high minimum f stop, and you can find some pretty good 25 mm primes, with a 1.7 f stop for really good narrow depth of field shots and low light shots. But it is very serviceable, I leave it on most of time. The photos I attached were taken on my first and second hikes with the camera. Its easy to get comfortable with.

    Fantastic Camera-Not for beginners

    I love this camera, but it does come with its own set of challenges. It takes pristine photos. I take photos of dogs and sometimes find drawbacks with catching wiggle worms. The photo's I do get are amazing, however in a shoot of about 40-50 I get maybe 10-15 great photos. I am still learning how to utilize all of the functions.

    I wanted something more lightweight and compact for travel and occasional parties. Contemplated on getting this and the sony a6300. This suits better for my application. I would buy a prime lens for this and see how it compares to my d800 setup. So far i am loving it!

    Vaca and Sunny Outdoor Stills

    Posted .

    DSLRS are great except in bright sunlight. I plan to take this to the Grand Canyon. I have been rehearsing the use of manual focus, reasign a back button for magnify, the front wheel for tweaking the +/- exposure. I can view the scene in the viewfinder in the bright sunlight with assistance of a histogram. It also has dynamic range adjustment. CONS: Difficult menu. Had to modify a spreadsheet from another OMD model to track the Mysets. Created a Gdrive cheat sheet to access from my phone for the Mysets. Retrieving Myset configurations gives different results when retrieved from the menu VS an association on the function wheel. My Myst config summary: OMD E10 ii Mysets Myset 1: Factory Reset Myset 2: Outdoor still.

    Very impressive camera in a small body. It allowes all levels of users to capture top quality shots. Don’t let the smaller sensor size fool you; I have used DSLR’s with 24mp sensors and the image quality has been a great match. One recommendation I would give to Olympus is to offer bigger range lense as an option for the kit (14-150).

    Stellar Quality Start when switching from DSLRs

    |
    Posted .

    I have been shooting with Nikons and Cannon both in Full Frame and dSLR format for the past 9 years. Suffice to say, it becomes cumbersome carrying a large body camera and lens when trying to capture candid moments at events... or even Burning Man. I made the switch to Mirrorless before attending Burning Man this year. Partly because I did not want to sacrifice my "good" camera but I definitely did not want to sacrifice quality shooting. I cannot express how overwhelmingly impressed I am with the quality of photos I gather with the Olympus. I. Am. Sold. #1. The fact it shoots in RAW is great for post edit (watch out LR5 users. the format requires a plugin". #2. It's so unbelievably small and light! I was able to carry it on me without any issues. It's the perfect fusion of point and shoot and SLR when it comes to compactness and features. #3. I'm considering using this over dSLR for all my non-commercial/professional events. I'm shooting at the same level of quality with the Olympus. I've only tried 3 of the Olympus lenses, none of the ones I've used are equal to my 24-70 Nikkor Lens- but who cares when you are just trying to capture the moment without having to lug the big gear! #4. This price point is BETTER THAN BUYING AN ENTRY LEVEL DSLR! Why spend $500 on an "entry level" dslr when this will supercede that. I never thought I'd endorse a mirrorless as a starter camera- but you can do some great work with this Olympus. If it can survive 2 weeks in Black Rock Desert --- this is a solid quality camera.

    I've been using Olympus film and digital camera for decades and they are fantastic. I've used Nikon and Canon and Sony too, but there is something special about Olympus! The body is the perfect size and the controls are perfectly placed. The kit lens is pretty good for a kit lens, although I did upgrade it later.. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Missing some features. Got as a gift for HS classes. Doesn't have all the features needed, Sports? Not sure if its us or the camera for some of this but we're still learning. Would have been better to come w more lenses.

    Darn Good Camera so far.

    I am New to MFT (Micro 4 3rds) and so far PROS: is easy to use and carry, has a great traditional look, takes great pictures with lots of creative options in camera and some pretty decent inexpensive lenses to get you started. Note you can use any MFT lens on any MFT camera Lumix on Olympus or Olympus on Lumix etc....pretty cool. CONS: So far - battery life is shorter than what one may be use to compared to point and shoot, APS-C, or Full Frame and I its due to electronic view finder use vs optical VF. I like it so far and enjoying it.....the best camera is the one you have with you.

    If you want a lot of options and features but don't want to lug around a heavy, hard to handle camera, this one is great. I have small hands and I need something that is not hard for me to hold securely. I like the flexible viewfinder also.

    First mirrorless camera

    |
    Posted .

    This is my first mirrorless camera and was having a hard time deciding between the Olympus and the Sony a6000. I went with the Olympus because of its 5-axis stabilization. So far I have really enjoyed shooting with this camera, my only complaint is that the menus are a little confusing.

    This is the highest quality digital camera I have ever owned. Not only great quality; but very easy to learn after not using or having even held a camera in years! Perfect for the beginner or advanced photographer.

    I have owned two DSLR cameras before my mirror-less camera. This camera blew the DSLR cameras out of the water. I use this camera during my backpack trips in the Southwest of the US and has out performed my standards.

    I am really a camera buff. I had a 35 mm camera with several lens. I have had several point and shot digital cameras. I felt like it was time to step up and invest in a nicer camera. I have always been please with Olympus and have been please with the camera so far. Still learning but very happy with my investment.
