Photographing the Solar Eclipse

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.

Are you still using a photo editing workflow or camera gear from before 2010? A lot has changed in the last 15 years, and sometimes it can be easy to fear learning new tools. Both of us view learning new tools, including software and cameras, as part of a life-long process. This week, our podcast explores the existential fear that may make photographers resistant to change.

Program Note: We will be in Cuba next week, so our next show will be March 16th.

This week, we have a little fun discussing features that can sometimes feel important, but maybe aren’t all that necessary. Do you really need more than 24 megapixels? Hmm. On the other hand, there might be features out there that you think you don’t need, but would actually find quite enjoyable… Listen to hear more.

Interpreting Online Camera and Lens Reviews

Any time a new camera or lens is announced, we often scour the internet for any available reviews. While many online reviews are excellent, it’s also important to consider that every review (including ours) are implicitly biased. We tackle the issue in this week’s episode.
