Embracing a New Photographic Companion
Today, I'm excited to share my journey of choosing a new ally: the Olympus M43 camera. In a world dominated by smartphones, I ventured beyond the latest gadget to explore the art of photography on a deeper level.
Olympus: From Past to Present
Starting with an Olympus full-frame camera many years ago, I captured special moments on a budget. While smartphones surged in popularity, I yearned for a touch of professionalism in my work. But as technology evolved, a void emerged – a desire to craft more refined product shots in my work and hoping to capture the treasure moments in my life.
A Perfect Match: OLYMPUS E-M10 Mark IV
Recently, I embraced the OLYMPUS E-M10 Mark IV, a model that resonated with my needs. Dissatisfied with the iPhone 13 Pro's distortions in some angles, I again opted for a digital camera. Knowing the quality OLYMPUS offers, my return to the OM SYSTEM felt natural. Receiving nods from professional photographers online, I found camaraderie in their endorsement of the OLYMPUS E-M10 Mark IV paired with the M.Zuiko Digital 17mm F1.8 lens. A duo designed for street photography and low-light scenes, its affordable price with high quality sealed the deal.
Joy in Capturing Moments through the viewfinder
Mr. Ho Fan's words resonate deeply: "A good photograph communicates a fact, touches the heart, and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it." Inspired by his artistry, I embarked on this shift from smartphone to Olympus M43 for pottery and leisure photography. It wasn't about discarding the familiar but embracing new perspectives.
