Olympus E-M5 II Shooter?s Report Part I: Exploring Bermuda with the just-launched enthusiast mirrorless

    A few weeks ago, the Olympus E-M5 II compact system camera made its debut as a followup to the extremely popular E-M5 (E-M5 vs E-M5 II). With a raft of significant changes throughout, including a record-breaking image stabilization system, redesigned weather-sealed body, tilt/swivel display, performance and movie-shooting enhancements, and more, we were keen to get our hands on the E-M5 II for a Shooter's Report just as soon as we could -- and as it transpired, we had the perfect opportunity. On a press trip to the...

Resolution Wars, part II: Comparing RAW files - Micro Four Thirds vs Medium Format, Really?

The resulting image competes handily against high-resolution full-frame cameras, such as the Nikon D810 and Sony A7R. However, for many advanced photographers, a JPEG is nice and all, but where's the RAW? Thankfully, the E-M5 II offers this too, but there's a catch: you need a special Olympus-created Photoshop plug-in in order to view and edit...

UK temporarily bans export of 19th century photography album

The United Kingdom is hoping to retain an album containing photographs by Oscar Rejlander, and as such it has instituted a temporary export ban on the relic.
