I purchased this camera expecting the low light performance to be better than it is. When it is set to the max ISO, the resultant photos are very poor and basically unusable for most applications.
Other than that I am very happy with the camera and it does what I expect a high end Nikon to do. In low light with a F2.8 lens the auto focus works very well so whilst it does not do what I had hoped for with low light, it still does a mighty job.
I am glad I purchased the camera.
I am writing from Russia. I bought Olympus TG-850 for the first day of sales in the official store. Build quality is disgusting. Image quality in low light reminds me of a cheap mobile phone. However, among the devices for underwater use, ultra wide-angle 21mm lens are only at TG-850. I shoot underwater spherical panoramas.
I have a DX camera, D5100, so this lens is equivalent 90mm (with the 1.5x cropped sensor). Very sharp, quick focusing, not too heavy, amazing macro, great portraiture, and good landscapes (not really what this lens is made for, but you won't miss scenes if you only have this lens equipped. Better than any point and shoot.) Love it.
this is a well made lens great image quality witha gereat focal lenght range
I walked in knowing what I wanted, and changed my mind after holding both the 5DIII and the 6D in my hands. I have not regretted it! A great camera which is smaller and lighter than other full-frame cameras, is performs brilliantly. It is easier to hold and operate in my smaller hands, and the lighter body means less strain, even with heavy lenses. The clean higher ISO is brilliant if you are shooting in less than ideal lighting.
The extra AF points and the extra card slot would have been nice, but have not limited me or let me down in any way. I highly recommend giving the 6D serious consideration!
I was in delima whether to bought Canon or Nikon. So i choose Nikon D7000. After using it I must admit this is one of the best camera if you want crystal clear pictures. Using it with the prime lens 35mm and the result is excellent.
Fairly easy to use - although I am sure I have not used all the functions available.
There have been times which I am not sure what I have pressed and it goes into a countdown mode.
What was important to me was the image quality - it's not as sharp or able to accommodate the glare well. Picture quality is thus not as good as I would have expected.
It seems to handle night light better.
The inability to rotate the screen and the need to pop up the flash is a disadvantage.
Okay as a compact but I expected a better image quality. Also - why can't Canon standardise on battery sizes? It would give much greater capacity and flexibility to users.
first took camera to a National jet-ski racing event, naturally had a lot of fast moving action on the water, camera really proved itself.
The red dot target system came in very handy, end of the day came home with some really good action shots, have also taken some family portrait pictures,they turned out beautiful, this is the 5th Olympus camera I have owned ,1 died ,1 is retired and I still use 3 of them,E520,SP100EE and my Olympus tough.
All in all would highly recommend anything Olympus has to offer
Rich demonstrated great patience & knowledge in his explanation of camera functions & techniques. To me the array of knobs, buttons & options on the SLR was intimidating but he managed to present these in a most understandable way. The course didn't cover photo composition etc but went to the basics of photography, which is understanding the potential capabilities of the equipment that you're using and not being afraid to experiment with the seemingly infinite variables on a digital SLR. Maybe we also learnt a bit more about ourselves too. Thanks Rich
This is a truly amazing camera, packed with features, a great sensor, sharp lenses and super-quick focus. Its best feature is the build quality, with a water-resistant metal and plastic body. It's retro styling appeals to an old timer like me and it feels solid and businesslike in use. From now on I'm giving up blunderbusses and sticking to neat system cameras like this one.
