Free Lightroom Dashboard Tool tells you what kind of photographer you are! (TheNakedCamera)

TheNakedCamera spotted a small plugin called Lightroom Dashboard. It’s made by a single person named “Cheyne”. The APP analyzes all your pictures and shows you in beautiful stats:

your most common apertures
your most common focal lengths
your photo volumes over the past 2 years
how much usage your lenses get
how much usage your cameras get,

Cheyne promised to develop further the new app to include plenty of more features.

Olympus E-M10 confirmed to be announced in August.

We got a highly reliable information that Olympus will announce the E-M10II in August. Hope to get the exact date soon. Specs so far are unknown but I have been told to not expect anything revolutionary. For that you will have to wait for the E-M1II coming in 2016!
