Promised Guide to the Olympus OM-D E-M1
« on: November 26, 2015, 05:46:36 AM »

Hi, is this ever going to be produced?
Or have we lost interest...

A nice "courteous" question which do doubt will be answered by a nice "courteous"answer? First post too. :( Eleven years a member.

Not very courteous but still a valid question. I, too, would be very interested in seeing this guide.

Kevin certainly talked about it and it may still happen - I am uncertain. It's not for lack of interest on either side. Simply a lack of time to get all projects done. I will nudge Kevin  :)

Consider me nudged.... In 10 days Chris and I will be shooting for a week together.  We'll discuss the logistics of the project.  I have the outline and the OLY expert in place.  It's  matter of scheduling.  Watch this space for more info in about two weeks.  We have quite the project list right now.

Thanks and fingers crossed! I would find such a guide invaluable particularly after the firmware 4 upgrade.

please focus one segment on working full manual with older lenses - useful camera setups, techniques, difficulties
Thanks

One of the challenges will be to help owners to achieve, through an excessively complex menu system, the high degree of customisation/personalisation that is possible with this camera. The Olympus expert better be good.

This project as well as others are still on our list.  We have a lot of video content that we will be publishing over the coming weeks.  We are a small team.  While doing everyday articles and such for the site I have also been doing workshops.  The latest in Iceland and then I'll be gone 4 weeks for our Patagonia and Altiplano workshops in S. America.  This obviously takes away from time in the studio. We will get this and other camera tutorials on the production schedule.   We haven't forgotten this and it is important as I own the Olys and really see a need for a good tutorial.

Hello Kevin,

can you please precise a little bit how many weeks you were talking about ? If I'm not totally wrong, your reply and the promise was much more than one year ago.

There must be other published guides elsewhere on the internet?

This is not the point : You pay here for a service based on promises which are not held. It is not just the Olympus video, nothing happened what Kevin proposed in the mentioned thread.

The Olympus, as well as other projects, were on our list.  The problem is as many businesses find is a lack of resources, in this case, human.  Chris and I have completed a number of videos and I am trying to catch up with getting the articles that go with them published.  In addition, we have a Shooting with The Masters Video which is in the can and we want to get that finished.  We're looking at using third parties to do some of the videos as well as editing.  We have added help for other areas and hopefully, we can begin to pursue a lot of what we want to add as content.  I apologize for not doing the video as promised.  With the passing of Michael last spring when this was promised and a lot that happened after that some plans changed.  I do hope that over the coming weeks the video and articles that are coming will be of interest.  I am meeting Chris in Toronto next week to discuss our productions for the rest of the year.  Thanks for the understanding.  I'll discuss camera tutorials plus some of the other ideas that we are working on and hopefully, we can soon share what to expect.

Kevin, thanks for your answer, but to be honest, this is almost the same you already wrote more than one year (!) ago. Please, compare both :

  • lack of time
  • other projects to be ready to publish soon
  • ...
You make it difficult to believe in your words, Kevin !

Kevin, I'm talking about 14 month !

Don't you think that there would be a time window within this period ? And if you take a look at the initial pos, it was years ago
