I’m leaving tomorrow for a week in California. I’ll be working for most of the trip but will try to squeeze some photography time up in the City by the Bay. Yup, San Francisco. I’m bringing the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, the small Pentax Q7 system and possibly a small film camera.
Nearly 2 years ago, I tested and reviewed the then new Olympus Pen E-P5 with shots from San Francisco. I’m looking forward to putting the Mark II though it’s paces. I’ll shoot street photographs but will also test the high-resolution 40MP mode.
Here in Austin, I’ve been shooting the Mark II and even recording short videos. There’s a lot to like about the camera. Every iteration of the Olympus micro 4/3 cameras adds a new level of refinement and gets closer to perfection. Is it perfect? No. Nothing is, I guess. There’s still a few things that I wished worked better. I’ll certainly talk about those in the upcoming review.
The photograph up top, I shot it on 6th Street, a week ago. I really like how the E-M5 Mark II handled the colors and light. I shot it in JPEG with minor post processing. The 17mm f1.8 works really well for this kind of thing.
I’ll be back in about a week, hopefully with some decent photographs from San Francisco.
