First flowers of spring, finally at my place, on my plum tree. The honeybees are our next-door neighbors, but they visit regularly.  Hope to be posting photos more often this spring and summer.

Shots with my Olympus OM-D E-M5II, 60mm f/2.8 macro and 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lenses.   #naturephotography  +Olympus   #insects   #olympus   #spring2015   #flowerphotography

I think Olympus has a magic formula for JPEG, it's really good out of the camera. But these were all shot raw. Olympus has more in common than you might think with Nikon, since many of their models use Sony sensors. Not the whole story, though.

Very nice!

I got into m43 a few years back with a Pen E-M1, basically as a replacement for my P&S of the last year. It didn't exactly match the IQ of my Canons, but it was the first pocket camera (with a pancake lens, at least) that made me pretty happy.

The big draw m43 at the time was mostly the promise of excellent video support. I guess I called that one, between Panasonic, JVC, Blackmagic, Zeiss, etc. there's crazy action in the m43 world. 

Then came the OM-D E-M5. See, back in the 70s, I got my first SLR, an OM-1. In the 80s, I bought an OM-4, while on a visit to Japan. Lots of great memories.... Olympus was exactly what I wanted in a camera system. But as the OM-series faded, I added a Canon EOS Rt. Just seemed like I ought to move into the world of AF and electronic lenses and all. So it was natural to move to Canon for digital. I currently use a 6D and a 60D.

But when the OM-D came out, I knew I must have. And it was a good decision. Olympus's retro approach is really well suited to their real push to be a great still camera, in the days so many soend so much effort on video. If/when I want to shoot m43 video, there are many choiced.

And what I found was that in most situations, the OM-D is just great. I'm not taking it for dark shooting -- that's why I bought the 6D. But I have yet to find myself wishing I had the Canon rather tgan the Oly, when I made the decision to take the OM-D. And since I have mostly wide aperture primes for m43, and all get the benefit of the highly evolved in-camera IS, it's not tgat bad infadong light, either.

Whatever floats your boat Dave.  I like my $1,000 canon, but I saw a guy putting up sharper pictures of flowers than I was.  It turned out his was a G15 Power Shot by Canon for $275.00.  So I went online and bought one and am hoping to get sharper pictures of lowers this year.

Not sure I want a smartwatch, but they're starting to get in the ballpark, far as aesthetics goes. This looks close to the LG Watch R or LG Urbane as one that's actually a decent watch without flaring the Nerd Flag (hey man, got enough of those already) that it's actually a tiny computer. Once they get a few days of battery life, and can do all of the sports band functions, I might be interested.

It is neat how Google+ lets you scroll around the photo like a QuicktimeVR.  Have a great trip and enjoy warm weather!

Amazon had some good deals in P&S cameras. I picked up a Fujifilm X-F1 for $149. I've seen them around for as much as $449. This is a really nice, kind of retro design, with a manual zoom. That's a 12Mpixel, 1/1.5" sensor, 25-100mm equivalent f/1.8-f/4.9 lens. Basically solves the same problem as your Olympus. 

And yeah, 12Mpixels. There are quite a few P&S cameras that offer more pixels, but most lower cost P&S cameras use 1/2.3" sensors. With such a sensor, you need at least f/2.0 to go to 18-20Mpxiels without being diffraction limited. With the f/3.5 and worse long zoom, you're effectively about 10-12Mpixels. But either way, those tiny pixels are actually smaller than what you'll find in some smartphones these days, meaning lower dynamic range and lots more noise in your photos. A larger 12Mpixel sensor will produce much better photos.
 
I needed a camera to replace my Nikon, Amazon has this Olympus 12MP camera for $179! It's $499 on B&H!
To hell with cellphone pics Get a REAL camera and cherish these upcoming holidays before the nuclear holocaust.
