Analogue interlude

    Newer Older

    Eugene sold his big Canon 5D Mk II to move to the much more compact Olympus OM-D E-M5. Unfortunately for Eugene, the E-M5 still isn't out. So while he waits, he's gone analogue again, shooting film in his old Nikon FE. Seymour Street, downtown Vancouver. March 20, 2012.

      Very cool old camera. I like the tone and angle.

      The choice of the art filter is really working great in this one, Eric! I would have kept the 5D Mark II and added the OM-D, instead of the simple switch... And maybe use some of the EF lenses on OM-D with the lens adaptor, just like Jason is doing!

      Actually, no art filter here! :)

      And I'm sure Eugene would have kept both systems if that was realistic for him. I also think that like me, he likes the idea of being able to carry everything around without the size and weight penalty.

      I guess choosing your gear is a little bit about the compromises you can live with. Full frame might mean better image quality, but it also means big, heavy, expensive glass and not being anywhere near as portable as something like micro Four Thirds.

      And while I personally love seeing what you guys get out of your Mk IIs, I just can't imagine carrying a big camera anymore. Nevermind paying the premium for L glass.

      Wow! I thought you used the cross process filter! The tones here are great anyways! And I know exactly what you mean regarding the MFT cameras. I am not against them (I used to be a PEN guy, remember? :)) , did not mean to spoil the idea of getting OM-D to replace 5DII at all! I am even thinking of getting one of the MFT cams in the future to compliment my 5DII. I think the two will make a great combo :)

      I have decided that I officially no longer lust after big cameras. I'd be happy with just a PEN or OM-D and three lenses. Which is pretty much where I've landed now... and even that's probably more than I need. :)

      And I can never forget that you were a PEN guy... it's how we made the connection through Flickr in the first place. :)
