Yep. Photography nerd here. That’s a solid camera, feel free to ask specific questions, I’ll be happy to answer.

OP, I don’t currently own any Olympus cameras, but I do use some Olympus lenses as they are interchangeable with Panasonic cameras.

Olympus is know for good build quality, and their cameras are probably some of the most compact and lightweight ones on the market. That being said their menu system isn’t the best so if you’re not coming from another Olympus camera it might take awhile to learn where everything is and master the controls. If you’re into video, their in body stabilization is best amongst all camera manufacturers. There is no question. The one downside is probably image quality at night; if you’re not going to be shooting in the dark it’s not a problem, but if you are the sensor is quite small so low light images will come out grainy.

It’s kinda hard to compare this camera vs XT30 because the Olympus came out a lot earlier, so tech wise the Fuji is stacked. I’m really biased towards Fuji right now as I shoot mostly on Fuji. I’m mostly a photo, not video person and I just love the colour science of Fuji. It’s also quite a bit more expensive than the Olympus though.

Any artists working on brand side or agency?looking to meet them. Artists who create Art outside work (painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, digital art, video/animated art..) The reason I am posting here is because such artists are often not mainstream so discovering them is more word of mouth. Planning MvVO ART/ AD ART SHOW 2023. After all Warhol was an Illustrator , Magritte a Graphic Designer and Hopper an Art Director. No deadlines , no rush...maybe you are an artist or know one.

Looking to get into photography and want to splurge on my first non phone / non point and shoot camera. I’m trying to decide between the Nikon Z50 and the Canon EOS RP. I will mostly use it for landscape, and then family friends pets in casual settings. I’m hoping to find a camera I can learn on and grow into. I don’t expect lens selection to be a major factor for me as I doubt I will carry multiple lenses - probably just one at a time. Any advice?

Great to find this bowl.

Hello all,
Amateur photographer here. Want to upgrade from phone photography to some good cameras.
Any suggestions ?
Budget is $1000 with some good lens. Any deals will be appreciated. Following Slickdeals though.
How's Nikon Z50 vs Fujifilm xt30?
Both are under $1K.
It will really help if someone explains which one is better. It will ease my search process.

I would love some advice to get a little more serious with this hobby of mine. I have gone to a handful of events, both local tracks and professional circuits as a spectator, but wish to know what the best approach is to gain media credentials to take this passion of mine to the next next step.

Any advice is welcome, I would very much love to fuel this passion of mine with the hopes of eventually making motorsports photography a career path.

I got something cool in the mail today 🤓

FINALLY saved up enough for a Leica kit - I was very excited for the CL - but the shop suggested the Q2 as a really great travel camera, and now I’m not sure what to get. Anyone here shoot Leica? I’m looking for a simple to use, compact travel camera. I love the lens -swap on the CL (one day want to own an M and SL kit) - but the Q2 has me thinking…

Sony 16-35 mm. Worth it?
