Been meaning to ask this for a while. May seem rudimentary, but I would like to see/hear how people carry their cameras around? In a camera bag? Which one? On a strap around your neck? How do you manage for it to be safe and discreet and yet quickly available for a shot? And not heavy or bulky. I walk everywhere, often in dicey urban areas. Edit to say: Links to specific bags appreciated!!
Olympus has just announced they are leaving the camera equipment business completely. They are selling to a Japanese investment group. No way to know what this will mean for sure, but given how investment groups destroyed G I'm sad to hear this news. My very first SLR, a gift from my dad when I was a junior in college back in the late 1970s, was an Olympus OM-1, which my daughter used when she took photography in college. In fact, I still use the collection of lenses I got for that camera on my OMD E-1 and on my Sony mirrorless. To my surprise, even after buying my Sony full frame, I still use my Oly a lot, and before Covid hit I was planning to buy a travel zoom for that wonderful light little mirrorless for a trip to Europe which we have put off indefinitely. I hope that this doesn't mean the new owners will pare down the business so much in an attempt to appeal to consumers, but if they are focusing on the OMD and Zuiko brands, perhaps those of us who love our Oly's will be lucky and it will mean that they'll focus on pros and their higher end cameras and lenses. Panasonic is now working with Leica more and seems to have turned away from micro 4/3 and while micro 4/3 may not be the highest resolution, it is a perfect compromise for those of us who want high quality super light camera equipment.

I'm going to see what other info is out there and will add new links when I find additional info.
markbolton posted a topic in Stock photography discussion and contributor experienceHI there, Im in the process of sorting out equipment ready for the coming 'season' and am coming around to the perennial issue (for me anyway!) of camera straps... I never seem to be able to get one that Im happy with... theyre either too short, too narrow, they are uncomfortable, and they are ugly (!). Im happy to spend some money, and it seems to me that they become quite 'personal' after a period of time. Leather? Canvas? coloured or plain? wide or narrow? what sort of fittings? wrist or neck straps? blimey what a lot to think about! I realise that lenses and bodies should take up my (limited!) head space, but Im happy in that department... any thoughts from you lot? cheers and have a good week all... www.markboltonphotography.co.uk
