Man oh MAN! I have been so busy lately with traveling, driving and moving across the country. Ugg. I still have a lot to do but am excited to get back to FULL TIME work on this site! I just got back home last night at 2am from the airport and have been packing boxes all day long so I have not been able to update until now. While I was traveling these past few days I mostly shot film but did get a few snaps off with the Olympus E-PL1.
In my review of the E-PL1 I asked the question…”Is this the best JPEG camera EVER?”. After looking at some of my recent images I am going to say that for me, YES it is and that is my opinion and I am sticking to it! I am amazed at what the Olympus 17 2.8 and E-PL1 gives us for $599 for the body and $230 for the lens. Again, this lens is gorgeous on the E-PL1. It’s the only lens I want to use on this camera because it has the perfect combination of color, smoothness, detail and speed. Sure, I wish it was faster but we have the Panny 20 1.7 for that. IMO, the 17 renders a bit smoother and I love it!
Anyway, these images will not show you any of that as they have been converted to B&W using Silver Efex Pro where I added grain and applied my own custom settings. These were just shots taken out of the car window as my wife drove but I still like them, especially after the B&W treatment. Anyway, here are a few from the road with the E-PL1! IMO, the best buy in the m4/3 camera bodies right now!
I will have more cool stuff over the next few days so check back soon!
