We just wanted to send you a reminder that there’s only 1 week left to win a brand new Olympus OM-D E-M1. It has great built-in bracketing (7 exposures for a 14-stop dynamic range). Its fast, light, and easy to shoot with. Its quickly become my favorite HDR camera. But its also quite capable at shooting great stills, time-lapse, and video.
This contest is to celebrate our partner HDRsoft, the makers of Photomatix Pro. If you don’t already user Photomatix Pro, be sure to try out the demo and see what youre missing.

  • Photomatix Pro
