With Canon 60D I’ve used Samyang 8 mm as my fisheye lens. Obviously, I needed a fisheye for Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark 2, and I had three options: Samyang 7.5 mm 3.5, Panasonic 8 mm 3.5 and Olympus 8 mm 1.8. It wasn’t an easy choice, but I ended up choosing Samyang 7.5 fisheye.
Olympus 8 mm 1.8 is definitely the best of these three, but it also costs the most. For the price of one Olympus one could buy 4 Samyangs, so I just couldn’t afford it right. […] Read more!
A year ago I wrote a blog post about what I want from my next camera. I listed Sony A7S, A7 Mark II and Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, which I have currently. During this year I also secretly hoped that maybe camera manufacturers will release a new even better camera before I have decided which I buy. The cameras that I hoped to be released were Canon 80D, Sony A7S mark II, and Sony A6000 successor (A6300). […] Read more!
In February this year I wrote a blog post about what do I want from a new camera in 2015. In the end of the post I said, that Olympus might be the one that I choose. And you know what! Now I have Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark 2 with the kit lens M.Zuiko 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ ED!
In February I made a list of things that I wanted from my new camera, and they were like this:

Right now I have a Canon 60D, which I use with a Tamron 17-50 (28-80 on full frame) mm 2.8 stabilized lens and a Samyang 8 mm fisheye. I love this combo, since the 60D has a fully tilting screen which is very useful while shooting video. Also the zoom lens is great, since it has a fixed aperture over the whole focal length and a stabilizer, which is also something that you just got to have. […] Read more!
I’ve been thinking of getting some kind of a camera stabilizer for long time. Only problem is that they tend to be very big and expensive. For example Glide Cam HD-2000 costs something around 500 euros. After watching some skate videos I noticed that those guys use handles with their DSLRs, so I felt that I really have to get one.
I started to look for them and find out that Cam Caddie’s Scorpion is the one they use the most. […] Read more!
When I got interested in photography for real, I needed a new camera that could handle all the different situations. I was into shooting live shows and some backstage material.
So the camera had to perform well in low light situations and have video capabilities. Since pocket sized cameras are not designed for extreme low light performance, it had to be a DSLR. And I wanted go with one from a major brand.
Every photographer knows about the war between Canon and Nikon users. […] Read more!
