    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    We had the chance to do a bit of night shooting yesterday when the Summer fireworks displays started up at Bournemouth. This shot was taken from the cliffs across the bay using the Olympus 45 f1.8 (I did try the 75-300 but even on the tripod the wind was causing it to oscillate resulting in unacceptable blur, with or without IS.)

    The 45 f1.8 is fast becoming my favourite lens



    looking at this picture again I see a Muscovy Duck facing a Lion in the smoke - does anyone else see this or do I need to go back on the medication again?

    I see it!

    I sold my 7D and beloved 85mm f/1.8 this week and will be getting the OMD and 45mm f/1.8 this week. Very excited.

    I am finding that in the 200-300mm range, the lowest shutter speed handheld for me is about 1/200 without getting microblur. So what is that?........about a two stop advantage with the IBIS? Whatever it is, it has made a sizable difference in the way I use this lens.

    R
    Man, that shot looks awesome!

    And I think that's more advantage than two stops. At 200mm on 4/3 I need 1/500 to kill it. At 300mm I need 1/800 before I can stop praying mightily. I still get blur hand-held at those speeds but it's like only one in three (or maybe half) suffer (if I'm rested and not distracted, etc.).

    That the IS can do anything at all at 300mm (600mm equiv) is pretty amazing to me!

    Thanks Tess......coming from you (the Photog with Arms of Steel), that is a very good reality check.

    I am seeing an additional benefit (that has mentioned before).......a half press of the shutter button stabilizes the image in the EVF, so your fine focusiing can be accomplished without the subject dancing all over the place.

    I quite agree - it's so cool isn't it - it makes even the long 3rd party lenses quite useable.
    excellent

    Tess - you are doomed (but you know that anyway!)

    The Kit lens is really not bad.
    Here are a couple of shots of Harebells (Campanula rotundifolia) pretty things which grow in patches around here:

    This 45mm lens is quite a performer. Factor in the price and it's downright outstanding. Some from today, typically British weather. The last one, 'Superdry', was one of those lucky moments....I didnt see the matching logo on the guy's jacket until I downloaded the images

    The second would be my choice, but which did she like?

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Carl,

    Thanks. She likes the second, as do her sister and daughter. Her husband strongly prefers the first. (Never mind that the focus is on the back eye in the first pic. And I thought the OM-D had a sophisticated AF system! I have it set for "nearest eye".

    Matt.......I keep coming back to this one.......not quite Gordian, but very nice.

    I see you used a 8X ND filter.......I need to get a 58mm one. Any suggestions?

    Gentlemen: Thanks!
    Jono: Once you hold it in your hand, you'll get it...and, your 75mm F/2 doesn't autofocus.
    Rich: I always end up with B+W filters.

    But it was too good to be true; they don't seem to focus at any distance.

    The good news is the ordinary M lenses.....

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Hmm OMD and the wedding of an old friend, and a new friend who is a professor at Trinity College Cambridge (lovely place for a wedding!)

    It was rather a delight not to be responsible for the snaps . . . until I realised that nobody else was responsible either - I only had the OMD, the 12-35 and the 45 f1.8, no flash, and one half full battery!











    There are lots more of course, but the camera performed excellently - I wouldn't hesitate to shoot a wedding professionally with it.

    Jono,
    So glad you had camera in hand. You did admirably (would we expect less?!?)--love the one of the two women.

    I have to say--again--I'm rather smitten by the OMD. I really must post something LOL.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Such nice shots being posted. Two lenses that really are calling to me are the 45/1.8 (I have the 45/2.8 and will keep it) and the 12-35/2.8. But--I must buy a new computer and am contemplating switching after being a Windows person since Windows becameth...... The Ipad(s) have done their job proselytizing LOL. So lenses are a bit on back burner I suppose, esp, the 12-35.

    Great stuff, Jono
    Now don't tell me you shot 300+ photos with one half full battery !
    But next time don't take the risk and be prepared - people are counting on you ...

    All the very best.

    Thank you Diane - it's wonderful how you snap into the situation when it's needed . . . and of course I always have a camera in hand, but if I'd known it would have been an M9.

    Still, the OMD was excellent - very little intervention required, even with really tricky lighting against sunny windows. Focusing is ridiculously fast, the EVF shows exactly how much exposure compensation is needed. The number of technical keepers was really high.

    I'm rathe smitten by it too!

    all the best

    ps . . . . get a mac!

    Couple more geology shots from the gorge walk series.

    A pothole in the limestone bedrock. There are many of these in this particular stream and they vary in diameter from about a foot up to 5-6 ft and depths up to 10-12 ft. Most are perfectly cylindrical in shape.



    Just trying out the automated HDR script in CS6. This image was generated from 5 bracketed raw shots.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    First time out for the OM-D (with Panasonic 100-300mm lens) at the waterski club:







    Actually it wasn't as bad as I thought it might be, though I do need a faster card for burst shooting.
