Arrow Olympus Europe Photography Playground launched in Berlin

Four Thirds User (Fourthirds-user.com) is a sibling site to the e-group.

Olympus Europe is launching a huge public initiative to promote the OM-D E-M5 in Berlin, Germany, making 150 cameras available to members of the public at a purpose built facility in central Berlin where they can use the cameras in a dozen unique art installations.

Absolutely, that's what I said on FTU. We could really do with two events, one in Birmingham and one in Glasgow or Edinburgh.

That would look very much at home on the Mezzanine floor of Tate Modern

Re: Olympus Europe Photography Playground launched in Berlin

The event is costing Olympus Europe 3 million Euros and it's not likely to travel but Oly UK could put on a smaller scale attraction; they are considering things.

Here's a video I put together of one of the more animated installations:

Shame he wasn't able to use an E-M5 because he didn't have adequate ID (bring your passport if you are visiting from outside Germany!)

Re: Olympus Europe Photography Playground launched in Berlin

I have a friend over in Berlin at the moment, so I've pointed her in the direction of this as something she might like to do.

If I get any feedback I'll post back.
