Olympus Pen-F mirroless test – chapter II

So….we’ve hand the Pen-F in hand in MANY applications. A restaurant “Soft opening” (crowded – wall to wall scurrying mayhem and average interior ambient lighting) and it worked GREAT!!!  Some low light focus hunting…but…no worse than my Canon 5D, 70D or similar with a f2.8 lens.TedsCAfe_D1-1290Proof TedsCAfe_D1-1311Proof

It even got to a point where I just put my 5D with 580flash unit on my shoulder and wanted to shoot everything with the 7-14mm, f2.8 PRO (14-28mm in 35mm format) lens or the 25mm f1.8 (50mm in 35mm format) std.        But….due to client responsibility…I shot with both Olympus AND Canon that night.


Needless to say…it’s grown VERY popular on me.



Testing the new Olympus Pen F (Micro 4/3rds format) 20mp digital camera

We’re trying out a new ( comes out for sale – 2/27/16) Mico 4/3rds digital camera for the next few weeks.  Coupled with a 7-14mm F2.8 PRO lens ( comparable to 14-28mm in 35mm)…the lens is almost as big as the BODY of the camera. While this is a mirrorless version of the original  Half-frame 35mm film version of the Olympus Pen …it’s no WAY any bigger. Packed with 5-axis image stabilization, ISO range up to 64,000 (night vision be damned) and on the fly B&W/Tri-X emulation…this camera ROCKS! 20MP still AND HD video (no 4K…but…it’s fine with me in HD).

the foillowing test images are UN-altered – straight out of the camera (just derezzed for the web).  More tests to follow.


Time IS Money….Right?

Time is money…RIGHT? Can you recite an “elevator speech” 100 times an hour….be in MANY locations at the same time…..and do it face to face WITH pictures…in your own voice?
Well…….we can HELP you do that…..and for barely $300-$500/30 sec presentation.
Check out this ribbon cutting coverage ( shot in 1080 HD…for fone/tablet/computer OR HD TV).

Think beyond PowerPoint presentations….we are talking High Def capable, brilliant color, TV  commercial quality transitions and sound tracks.  Our presentations are shot in 1080 P MINIMUM with separate audio tracks and rendered in ProShow Producer ( just to start).

Minds-i reaches for the sky(s)…….

Minds-i has slowly been relearning how to recoup a loss of market share in the photography business.

When we lost our studio….a large portion of my confidence went with it, I (we) loved doing indoor studio pictures of students & family members. But….society has changed how it perceives photographs. So…….it took us a while to adjust.




Along with onsite portraiture, business portraits & event photography  we now have added low-altitude* aerial imagery. We have the capabilities to shoot high def video (up to 4.7K cine class vid. ) as well as stills.  New equipment will be added as we grow….hope to hear from you soon.
