"Inside Photos for OS X, Olympus E-M5 Mark II" - Photo Podcast 466

This week on The Digital Story Photography Podcast: The inside scoop on Photos for Mac OS X, and a closer look at the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II - All of this and more on today's photo show with Derrick Story.

Story #1 - The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, a beautiful upgrade to the camera that started it all for micro four thirds shooters. I had a hands-on preview of the E-M5 Mark II earlier this year at CES in Las Vegas, and I'm quite excited about what Olympus has done with this camera. I cover it in detail during the first segment of today's show.

Story #2 - Photos for Mac OS X - Over the last week, many details were revealed about the iPhoto/Aperture replacement for the Mac. As it turns our, Photos for OS X will be more of an iPhoto update than an application that Aperture users can migrate too. What does this all mean for Aperture users? I take a close look in the second segment of today's show.

From the Screening Room - The Traveling Photographer: Paris with David Hobby. David takes us on an envious adventure in Paris and talks about the City of Lights from a photographer's point of view.
