The 2x Teleconverter (MC-20) This TC doubles the focal length of the master lens, and features dustproof, splashproof and freezeproof (-10°C) professional weatherproof construction for outstanding optical performance.
If you hear the phrase “holy trinity” applied to photography, it means a selection of prime lenses with a wide, a standard, and a medium telephoto focal length. Depending on the type of photography you do, you may never need any other lens.
Olympus has just announced two new lenses that join the already shipping Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 25mm f/1.2 PRO Lens to form their new trinity.
Apple unveiled its new high-end Mac Pro at WWDC on June 3. It’s been six, long, years, since Apple shipped a “pro” computer. And while the iMac Pro is a fantastic machine for photo and video, it lacks the horsepower to do complex editing jobs – especially those that rely on 4k video (soon to be 8k?).
In my Bird Photography Gear Guide (https://picturemethods.com/2019/02/25/scott-bournes-bird-photography-gear-guide/) I talk about the fact that I often use a monopod – not so much to steady my shots but rather, to rest my arms because I leave the camera and telephoto lens on the monopod and it keeps my arms and shoulders from getting tired carrying the camera all day.
When I first tried cameras that relied on EVFs I wasn’t impressed. I was used to big, bright, beautiful, optical viewfinders.
But then something happened – EVF builders listened to the criticism that electronic viewfinders brought and made better EVFs.
The Olympus OM-1 is just a small part of a storied history that many people don’t know about. Olympus is in its 100th year and just released a video that touches on some of this and the philosophy behind their approach to making cameras and lenses.
