Hands-on with the OM-1 Mark II

This week, we both got the opportunity to get our hands on the brand new OM System OM-1 Mark II. While there are lots of early reviews out there from insiders, we had some specific features we really wanted to test, including:

  • Human Face/Eye detection (improved algorithm)
  • Subject detection autofocus with tracking and smaller AF-target areas
  • Continuous AF with tracking enabled when subject detection is off (C-AF+TR)
  • Slower frame rates in SH2 sequential shooting settings (12.5 and 16.7fps)

We then offer our take as to whether or not the OM System OM-1 MarkII should be in your bag.

Photographing Cuba

We are back from a 10-day trip to Cuba, a rich photographic location. This week, we’ll discuss what it’s like going to Cuba, how to get there, and how Americans can travel there legally. We’ll be sharing some of our photos in this week’s bonus video for our Show Sponsors.

In Cuba, we each brought a different camera system but we had similar setups overall. We’ll discuss our favorite subjects, including the vintage cars, architecture, and colorful people.
