Trying Out EM1X -part I

Disclaimer: I’m not a professional photographer nor paid to write for Olympus.

Olympus is one of the big camera brands in the market today that has been in the market since 1936 ( that is the year Olympus’ first camera was introduced according to Wikipedia).

Last month, I was fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to test their mirrorless camera. I saw the Olympus ad on Facebook about their mirrorless cameras ( which are the EM1X and the E-M1 Mk2 ) that they are borrowing out to people who are interested in trying out Olympus cameras. So, I immediately filled up the form and since it’s Olympus, I didn’t have a huge expectation because for sure there are hundreds or thousands of people who would like to put Olympus cameras to the test. To my surprise one of their consultants emailed me and asked some information about me and what I usually take pictures of. He informed me that I could borrow a camera of my choice but the waiting time is long because there are lots of people who showed interest in the ad. I was also informed that this is also a project that he is working on (will do a seperate post about this).

I chose the EM1X and I asked for a telephoto lens. Unfortunately, I got late and I got the telezoom and a standard lens instead. I’m not complaining though.

Here are a couple of shots that I took using EM1X. Fixed the lighting on LR.

That would be all for now. Till next post. 🙂

The Horse Farm

After around two weeks of absence from this blog, I’m finally back! I’ve been busy with my part time job, Norway’s Constitution Day,  spent the Pentecost weekend with the bf’s family and traveled to Rogaland to visit my friends and family.

For the first time, I celebrated the 17th of May (Constitution Day of Norway) at Hundvin, a little village outside of Bergen, about an hour car drive from the city center. My bf’s sister lives there and she has a lovely horse farm.

I went closer to the farm, to get nice shots of each horse but all of them went away and turned their back on me (camera shy much?) except for the smallest one. 😛 I think the smallest horse thinks that I have something for him so I let him smell the camera. But when he found out that it’s not edible he turned his back on me! Maybe he’s saying that his services are not free. Who knows? 🙂
