Bergen County Camera and Olympus proudly presents the next artist for our “Evening With an Artist” series. On Monday, June 2nd from 7 pm until 9 pm, Frank T. Smith will be discussing Travel Photography. Frank is an Olympus Visionary who has traveled to such locations as Iceland, India, and Bhutan. Learn more about Frank on his website.
Frank discussing his passion for travel photography, “I have learned through my travels and working with various other photographers, that I can leverage my skills in a philanthropic photo journalistic way. Capturing stories and cultures such as sex-trafficking in Mumbai and regional corruption in areas such as South Sudan and Haiti help to bring awareness and aid to these cultures. Being able to use my skill and resources through photography adds to my passion.”
We’ve just received several OM-D E-M1 camera bodies. This incredible camera, when paired with the Olympus 12-40 f/2.8, becomes incredibly weather proof. There’s actually a photo reviewer who ran the OM-D E-M1 under a faucet while shooting photos and the camera survived. The freedom of being able to take your camera out into the rain or snow in any location and not have to worry about it is incredibly nice. This camera also features Olympus’ incredibly fast autofocus system and a large selection of lenses available for the micro 4/3rds mount. Stop in Bergen County Camera in Westwood to try out one of this year’s most impressive cameras.
On Thursday morning our Olympus representative stopped in with a little surprise for us, the brand new Olympus OM-D E-M1. This latest pinnacle in micro four thirds cameras is said to be a successor to the Olympus E-5, rather then a replacement of the OM-D E-M5. Understandable when focusing Olympus’ four thirds lenses is as quick on the E-M1 as it was on the E-5.
First reaction to holding the camera is how well made it feels. With the OM-D E-M1’s fully magnesium alloy construction and a weather, dust, spash, and freezeproof body, the camera doesn’t just feel solid, it is solid. Packed inside the camera is a brand new 16.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor and an updated version of Olympus’ dual AF technology, combining 81 contrast detection autofocus points with 31 phase detection autofocus points. The photos coming out of the camera simply looked brilliant. Still considerably smaller then any SLR on the market and capable of producing images comparable in quality, this looks to be one of the best cameras coming out in the near future.
Feel free to stop by Bergen County Camera to pre-order or ask any questions about the Olympus OM-D E-M1.
