I shot this handheld using an Olympus EM5 Mark III. I then stitched the shots in Lightroom before cropping to the image above. The lens I used was my Leica 12-60 lens at a focal length of 40mm. The exposure was 1/160 second at f/8.0 and ISO200.
You may have noticed from reading this, that I have bought another camera; an Olympus EM5 Mark III.
When I was recently reviewing my old work, I noticed a three-year period when I produced more keeper images than ever. At that time, I was shooting with the original Olympus EM5. More importantly, I enjoyed using that camera and would take it trekking a lot. Then as my equipment became bigger and heavier again, I tended to leave it behind more often. That’s why I thought I would try an updated EM5.
Like the original EM5, the Mark III is tiny. The body is about half the size of the Panasonic G9 and Fuji XT5.
Another factor in my purchase, and the reason I didn’t buy an OM5, was that good used models of EM5 Mark III’s are practically being given away. You can find excellent, low shutter count examples for around £500. Mine had only shot 2,000 images and was in mint condition.
I’m finding the new camera a joy to use, and I love the colours it produces. Here’s another recent photo taken with the EM5.
