    An unscheduled visit to a certian shop here in Bangkok led to an equaly unschedule acquisition. Someone is selling his MFT gear, so I got a Zuiko 45mm f/1.8, blue protective plastic still on, for $150. Sems to work fine

    Ummm... I have reserved a couple of other items too, but please don't tell my... oh bugger... I don't have a wife, do I? I'm going back next week then

    Congrats Jorgen, seems a great deal. I got the same lens together with the E-P3 that was "given" to me a few weeks ago and as the only lens it's a bit long (so I got another and some adapters to use manual lenses), but for candid portraits like you're showing here it's a fine piece of glass. And it's so much smaller and lighter than the 45/1.2 that for a light/casual walk around kit it serves my needs better.

    I've been offered an unused E-M5 together with a lens I'm probably buying, and the plan is to build a small kit around that camera and the GM5 with the Zuiko 12mm f/2, Panasonic 25mm f/1.7 and Zuiko 45mm f/1.8. Two bodies and three good prime lenses at under a kilogram

    Room 82 redux.... And hi res.... And with the old FL-36R mounted on the Pen F. Was quite surprised that hi res mode will support flash. Taking the photo does take some time though.

    80MP raw, initial toning in Lightroom, followed by finishing (including down sizing to 60MP in Photoshop). File was quite dark, mostly thanks to shadow adjustment being set to auto, so noise is visible in the final output.

    Worm hunting was slow today for this robin. E-M1X with the 60mm macro lens. Shot in HHHR mode, but original composited raw was blurry due to movement of the bird so I just ran the ORI file (first raw in the sequence that is saved with the raw high res file) through Topaz AI Gigapixel enlarging to same dimensions as the HHHR file (8160x6120). This a central crop.

    That looks fantastic except for a blurry area about a third from the right edge. Looks like some software going bananas. I had this now and then with the Panasonic 7-14mm on the GH1/2/3, and was told that it was caused by processing limitations in camera, although I don'tthink Panasonic has ever admitted anything of the sort.

    Thanks Jorgen. I noticed that blurry area also (and it is in the original file as well) but I don't know what caused it. Shot was taken through a glass window with drizzle going on outside, but other than that I'm not sure. I'll keep an eye out in future shots and see if it repeats.

    The entire upper part seems blurry, no?
    However the American Robin is captured very well.

    I think that the upper part blur is just a DOF issue and perhaps some distortion from the window glass. This was shot at f/4 and the robin was at the bottom of a small hill. Here is the full size original ORI file for context.

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

    I'm going through some old files, this one from 2014, and find that I miss the 75mm and, surprisingly, the GH3. I get this creeping feeling that the 16MP sensor might actually be better (more exposure lattitude) than the 20MP one. Or maybe it's the electronics of the GH3... or maybe it simply doesn't matter what camera I use. Lenses on the other hand

    Nah... forget what I just wrote. Shadows were fine with that camera, highlights not so much. Nothing to find there (I pulled the highlight slider all the way to the lft here). Let's just call it "hi-key", shall we

    A few from the Sunday walk...

    Manchester's tallest building will be less than half the height of the World Trade Center. The locals call this new district the Manchattan skyline.

    This last one is all a bit experimental. FL-36R mounted, metered manually while outside of the tunnel (1/250 and then adjusted the aperture accordingly). Walked back into the tunnel and took a few snaps, using the FL-36R to illuminate the interior.

    One of the EM1-II features I like is 'Keystone Compensation'. A cool feature IMO ...
    Left the uncorrected converted RAW image and right the in-camera converted image at maximum compensation.

    On the 17th of May, Norwegians bcome very Norwegian, so I think the Norwegian variety is more suitable. We only say "Gratulerer med dagen" btw., as we also say on birthdays. Norwegians are supposed to know what day we talk about

    The most common Thai way would probably be "yin dee duay wan chaat", litterally "happy national day" where "duay", which means "also" doesn't really have a meaning other than making the phrase more polite. However, when it comes to wishing people something good, the Thai language offers and endless row of varieties, often depending on your position in society, and not least your position in relation to the one you wish well. It's a very complicated language.

    One of the nice things about using flash more often is that those initial indoor test shots, when acquiring a new toy, are that bit easier. Saw it in the window of my local London Camera Exchange, today. There were two of them. I bought the more expensive of the two as it had two thirds less shots, a second proper Olympus battery and a cable release. Right, I need to stop buying stuff!

    Fun with random strangers who walk into the frame and then stick around?

    More beach kids, from a fishing village at the south of Mindanao. These kids literally grow up in and over the water. They live in houses, but the houses stand on stilts on the beach, in or out of the water depending on the tide.

    GX8 with Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 @ 35mm and f/4



    I often hear that the lacking ability of MFT to throw the background out of focus is a problem. This photo is taken at 35mm and stopped down to f/4. It's even cropped, and the background would have been blurrier if I had zoomed in or gone closer. If I take a photo with blurrier background, there will be nothing there, no story to tell, no indication of where this is and the environment the girl is growing up in. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, or something like that, but only if I can see what is in the picture.

    Maybe I'm weird

    Oh well... I didn't get that natural smile that I'd hoped for, but she's cute anyway, isn't she?

    This lens renders a bit like Velvia, if you see what I mean. I've even taken down reds and oranges a bit here.

    Four years earlier, same girl different camera, Nikon D810 with Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AiS. No, I don't see any reason to go back to full frame.

    I found 43 as good as any of my Sony or Fuji systems.
    The 43 files are less forgiving and require gentle processing.
    But given enough light (e.g. ETTR) and low-medium contrast, it's fine.

    Hey Jorgen!

    Now we are talking - the 12-40 is one of the most marvellous lenses I ever shot and it clearly shows in your photo(s). I compared it many times to Fuji and Nikon equivalents (equivalent focal length) and I was always surprised by how good the 12-40 renders. One of my main reasons to stay in m43 territory.

    I like the image you shot with the 12-40 much more than the older one - both colours, sharpness and rendering of OOF areas.

    Enjoy,

    Peter

    PS: you might want to try a EM1.2 (used or low price) as there are now a number of these cameras on the market meanwhile and you would love m43 even more
