    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    I was walking around last night down in southern California....never thought about taking fish pictures at night. Used this in my picture a day....just working off my small laptop and it could use some more careful processing but I kind of liked it.

    GF1 + 20mm ISO 800 f1.7 1/30

    Nice, Terry! I think I'd crop little tighter on this one, all that business at the top of the frame distracts a little, but I like the idea.

    Hey Godfrey,
    Last night I was working on a crop for it but liked the fish in the bottom right. So, to get out the top I was then working with a pretty odd aspect ratio. So, I just went in as tight as I could preserving the top of the grass on the left and the fish at the bottom. I'd love to see your take on a crop (and you can repost the crop here).

    Delightful!

    It would be interesting to read your thoughts on how the Lumix 20mm f1.7 compares with the PL 25mm f1.4... this image is a bit special!

    By and large, the way I describe it is that the Lumix 20/1.7 is 95% of the Summilux 25/1.4 in performance at 40% of the price.

    - The 21% difference in FoV due to focal length and concomitant change in DoF associated with that helps produce more blur in backgrounds with the 25 at the same aperture.

    - Bokeh from both is very pleasing, at least most of the time. (You can always find some situation where any lens will produce nasty gobblies in blurs.)

    - The 25 has less 'specular highlight blooming' when capturing point light sources at night compared to the 20.

    - Both lenses benefit nicely from Panasonic's inclusion of lens correction metadata: the 20 gets a solid improvement on geometric and zero chromatic aberration correction, the 25 has little geometric to deal with but again shows zero chromatic aberration when the files are processed with Silkypix or Lightroom/Camera Raw (for the 25, only when used on the G1 body).

    Beyond that, and in the premeditated absence of doing specific resolution chart exercises which become so much blah blah blah numbers and specs nonsense in conversation, I'm pleased to say that the 20 performs as like to a slightly wider version of the 25 as I'd hoped, at a much lower price and package size/weight cost. The only negative point to the 20 for me is that I like working with the Summilux' aperture ring on the G1 and L1, and wish the 20mm had an aperture ring too.

    Well, in a search for simplicity, I went further than that


    as there was some undesireable bokeh on the top right even cut back to the limits of the main reed plant. I also thought "maybe cloning the bottom right fish a little more to the left" might work and result in a square composition.

    Thanks Godfrey, the 20mm f1.7 is 33% of the way to my perfect set of lenses for m4/3rds... just a wide angle prime and a short telephoto and I'll be in heaven!

    Cheers

    On that metric, it's 25% for me; I see my need for four lenses total. Wider prime or zoom, short tele and longer tele in addition. I don't use the longer tele or wider lens as frequently as the 20 and short tele, but I do need them.

    Hi Keith,
    This image is tremendous! It is certainly one of a kind ... All the best, Leica 77.

    Yes, I'm already covered on the long end - the Hexanon 135mm f2.5 is a beauty.

    Now, those spectacles are stunning. When I was in Istanbul, I searched all over for a pair like that.
    They seem to serve a double purpose in keeping the hair in place

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread



    So, I was doing a magazine shoot yesterday and brought along my usual suite of gear that includes a 5D, Contax 645 and some Polaroid stuff. For kicks I threw in the GF1. I was surprised when it quickly became the goto camera throughout the shoot. The 4:3 aspect is almost perfect for full page verticals in a magazine layout.

    This was shot with the Oly 17mm and my only criticism of the system is the flash sync speed - 160. It was fine for this shot but I would like the ability to have more flexibility when selecting my f-stops.

    Nice work!

    If you use the Olympus FL36R or FL50R flash units, they support "FP" (high speed synch) operation, I believe even in auto and manual exposure modes. That nets much more flexibility for daylight fill work, particularly with the FL50R.

    Thank you.

    The problem here is that I'm using off camera flash with transmitters. The GF1 body just doesn't let you select anything past 160 once you have that transmitter in your hot shoe.

    Good to know about the Olympus Flashes though...

    That's true ... Panasonic (and Olympus, for that matter) is certainly not up to the dedicated flash system that Nikon has. I'm doing one-light solutions using the Olympus flash units with a long dedicated cable, otherwise running non-dedicated. ND filters help.

    Simply amazing! I love the composition and how this photo really shows off what micro four thirds cameras are capable of.

    The bokeh's perfect and is what makes this photo work in my opinion - as a newbie photographer i've always wanted to get bokeh like that. May I ask how u got bokeh like that? any editing on a pc?

    Thanks, glad you like it.

    I am sorry but I do not remember even if it was shot RAW or jpeg. I only have it saved as a jpeg. Here is the EXIF data:

    # Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 1/500 second ===> 0.002 second
    # Lens F-Number / F-Stop = 8/1 ===> ƒ/8
    # ISO Speed Ratings = 200
    # Original Date/Time = 2009:07:16 07:42:55
    # Shutter Speed Value (APEX) = 8965784/1000000
    Shutter Speed (Exposure Time) = 1/500 second
    # Aperture Value (APEX) = 6/1
    Aperture = ƒ/8
    # Flash = Flash did not fire, compulsory flash mode
    # Focal Length = 2000/10 mm ===> 200 mm
    Panasonic G1 & GF1 bodies, Panasonic 14-45, 45-200mm, various Minolta, Pentax, Canon FD, M39 & M42 mount lenses.

    Beautiful image - quite striking! Did you apply the vignetting or was that a function of the 35 with a M adaptor? ( I like the look in this shot)

    My school's ag department has a vineyard now for our own wine label.
    They asked the art department to come up with submissions for the graphic portion of the label design.
    I am in photography and so got up this morning for some pictures of the main building's architecture. Also one of my first real attempts at HDR.

    They asked the art department to come up with submissions for the graphic portion of the label design.
    The second image is a good starting point. I think cropping it to give more importance to the building will at the same time remove too much of the trees either side which at the moment seem to engulf it and also eliminate some foreground and sky which in excess does nothing to the image. Also as the label will be on a curved surface (the bottle) it is most important to have all lines parallel so in cropping make sure of this. The actual black and white/HDR work is very pleasing and adds the timeless feeling which vineyards invoke.
    Another shot of the same idea would be advisable to get the building perfectly centered with regard to the lamp posts and a little closer at the same time to remove said trees and get more lettering in from the façade, the converging verticals you'll get can easily be corrected in PP. But that's just me.

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Ron Evers, I really like your photo of the daisies! Now I want a longer lens for my G1 (or a macro).

    Terry, great shot of the bridge! I love photos of fog.


    Here are a couple from me. The ones with the berries has some motion blur and I should have focused on the berry closest to the camera, but I really like the results I get from G1 + 20/1.7 and my beloved 5D stays at home more and more often...

    Hi Robert, could you please your thoughts about this lens. I am thinking of getting one to go with the GH1 for birding. Can you please provide a link where I can view these birdie images at larger size.
    I am interested if it is sharp/detail and does it have a narrow DOF with a nice bokeh?

    thank you

    And eventually you might do what my co-worker did after he bought his GF1...sell it!

    Great shots BTW. I actually like the fact that the focused berry is not the upfront one.

    Thanks Brian! Unfortunately that is the only angle I shot, the background was too busy for any others. I might be in DC again this week, so maybe I'll try for more.

    Thanks for the input Michael,
    if the committee likes it there is a good chance I will end up reshooting it with your composition tips in mind. I am actually going to have to clone out the lettering on the facade since we're supposed to have a design that represents the high school without actually showing the name or any of the students...
