Gear Olympus OM-D E-M5: The Ideal 365 Camera

I’ve always liked Olympus cameras, my first camera being an OM-1. Just over a month into my tookapic project I decided to buy an Olympus OM-D E-M5.

Sixteen months and tens of thousands of photos later I’m glad I did. This small article shares some of the reasons why.

Gear The Ultimate Camera Bag

Most of us photographers suffer from episodes of GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome). A new lens, another camera, flashgun, you name it. Everything to fuel the believe that it will get us better pictures (or just because we are total gear heads).

Then comes the next urge for an acquisition: a fitting bag. Contrary to gear, we are often struggling to make a choice. There is a lot involved in getting the right bag. What will you be using it for? Street, travel, storage? Does it have to be an inconspicuous bag, or must it stand out and be really stylish. What about the form factor? Backpack, sling bag, shoulder bag, messenger style… Will you be carrying only your camera gear or all kind of day to day items as well?

One of the most popular excuses that keep people from taking up photography is “Photography is a very expensive hobby”. But here’s a fact. You don’t need expensive gear to start. Just like you don’t need a Ferrari to enjoy driving.

Professional gear with top notch quality parts is expensive, no questions asked. But still, you need to keep in mind that it’s not the gear that takes pictures. 90% of how the photo comes out depends on the person behind the lens. That’s why you can (and should) start even with the most basic camera. Even with a kit lens.
