using an olympus e-m5 with its art filters

I have my collection of Olympus digital cameras, the majority of them being micro four thirds. Two I still hold dear are a pair of original E-M5s. I took one of them out with me today with the M.Zuiko 14-42 EZ ED MSC collapsable lens with the LC-37C automatic lens cap. It makes for an extremely compact package, and the automatic lens cap closes over the front element when the camera is powered off and the lens collapses into what appears to be pancake lens. Call it a pancake zoom.

With its Sony manufactured 16MP sensor it’s certainly not a high resolution beast, but it has more than enough resolution for my needs. It’s no speed daemon, but it’s more than fast enough for a slower, more thoughtful approach to photography.

After all these years I’ve become interested again in the Olympus Art filters, which this camera has. When I was out earlier today acting as a chauffeur for my wife, I walked around outside using the Key Line filter taking photos while she was in the doctor’s office. For me, for whatever reason, all the Art filters are once again worth investigating further. It brings back an interest in this camera, and photography in general.

  1. Those are great! Not long after I got my Pen F, I inadvertently ended up with a couple of Key Line photos, but they were just wrong subjects for that profile. I’ll have to try again, now. I’ve been going back to the Vintage III, recently. Something about it I like. I’m seeing some perfect photo for it, though it’s illusive so far.
