The Most Popular PhotolisticLife Articles Of The Year

Most every website has some sort of program that keeps track of the amount of views it gets each day, the pages that readers visit, the terms that you use to find us, and so on.  After reviewing the stats from this year I decided to compile a list of the top articles for those of you who may have missed out the first time around or just simply want to take a walk down memory lane with me (or jog, it’s the holidays after all).

1.) Olympus OMD EM1 User Guide

Voted one of the best cameras of 2013 the EM1 is a fantastic camera.  This article walks you through the ideal settings for your EM1 as well as some tips.  No need to waste money on some book when the internet is full of free information and pictures of kittens.

2.) Olympus OMD EM1 Review

Once again, the OMD is at the top of the list as far as popular articles here on PhotolisticLife.  If you’re wondering what all the hype is about then hit the link above and see for yourself.

3.)  Best Lenses for the OMD EM1 and Micro Four Thirds System

If I had a dime for every time someone asked me what lens they should get for their Micro 4/3 camera I would have an impressive collection of dimes.  The Micro Four Thirds format has a great lens selection and this article narrows your options down for you.

4.)  SD Cards Vs. Compact Flash

You should read this article whether you have a compact flash slot on your camera or not.  Someday down the road you will either be asked or wonder what in the world a Compact Flash is.

5.)  What is Focus Peaking

The best way to manual focus a lens.  Seriously, take a look at this if you’d like to see the future of cameras.

6.)  Fujifilm X100S Vs. Olympus OMD EM5

Spoiler alert – the X100S.  If you have not looked at or heard of the X100S then I highly recommend this article.  If you do a quick search on this site (type in X100S) you’ll see I actually used this as my exclusive camera for a few months including a trip to Sicily.

7.)  Full Nikon Df Review

I’m currently using the Nikon Df as my primary camera and loving every minute of it.  If you have not had a chance to see some of the images this camera is capable of look at this review (or anything the D4 has produced since it uses the same sensor).

8.)  Convert the D600 Viewfinder Into A Round Viewfinder (works with D5100, D7000, and others)

The viewfinder on the D800 is spectacular.  The Nikon D600 comes with a crappy rectangle viewfinder and this article explains how to convert it as well as blocking the sun from coming in the side of your viewfinder and burning your retinas off.

9.)  Properly Evaluate Your Own Photographs

I’m not surprised this is fairly popular, there were not many articles about this on the internet.  Evaluating your own photography can be difficult.

10.)  Where to Focus in Landscape Photography – Hyperfocal Distance

If I had to pick only one article on this page to read I’d choose this one.  If you aren’t familiar with hyperfocal distance and you like to do landscape photography then you are really missing some key knowledge.

There you have it, some of your favorite articles of the year.  If you don’t see one of your favorites up there feel free to let us know what your favorite was in the comments below.
