    E-3 Black Panther...

    I took this image on my recent scouting trip for our upcoming UK Photo Safari, to visit a private collection of rare big cats - with the Olympus E-3 + 50-200mm SWD lens.



    Hope you like it... if there are any Olympus shooters who would like to register with our group, for future events and meetings, then please feel free to drop me a PM. If you're ever planning a visit to the UK, we'll do our best to organise a welcome for you!

    In the next few months, as our group grows, we're intending to travel internationally too.

    Kind Regards

    Brian

    These cats were behind a wire fence, but trust me... there's a fear in humans that must be genetic - because this thing, when it pounced out of the foliage was quite unnerving



    I'm hoping we'll get some spectacular shots on Sunday...

    Kind Regards

    Hey Brian,

    you would not have access to the 90-250 or the 14-35 for your shootings? Curious about those lense and their performance.

    Tell me, is my information about keeping exotic animals in the UK correct? Literally every Joa Saop can keep a Python or the likes as a pet, no special license needed. It is this way in Northern Ireland, and frankly, I think they lost the plot!

    As for genetics, yes, it is engraved.

    Hi Georg,

    if it exists, we'll have access to it! we have some *very* serious photographers in our group - who are extremely generous in bringing their most exotic kit to our events...

    The UK Photo Safari group events are the best place in the world to get real world hands on experience of 4/3rds kit of every description.

    And not just limited to Oly ZD lenses, or currently available kit either... It was fascinating to have a play with an Olympus c-8080 recently - In some ways, I can't believe how little progress has been made in digital camera design.

    I don't know about Pythons - but the paperwork and insurance requirements of keeping big cats makes this next event a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Needless to say, we're now fully booked

    I'll post a link to the follow up report when it's ready.

    Kind Regards

    Brian

    I'll be shooting golden eagles with the both lenses I mentioned soon, and I post some pics here.

    I must say, I love the quality optics from ZD. I think they are excellent pieces of glas.

    Shooting golden eagles with the 14-35mm f2? wow, you must be a rock climber too!

    Cheers

    Have a great trip Brian - I'll look forwards to seeing the results.
    Ho Hum - collecting boy from university Saturday, working Sunday

    Might get a walk on the beach with the dogs if I'm lucky!

    I love the black panther, but could the colour do with a little tweaking?

    Just this guy you know

    Hi Jono,

    thanks, wish you could make it to be with us...

    I'll take full responsibility for the colour being 'wrong' if that's what you see - I took it into LightZone to boost the colour contrast.

    Come to think of it, I wonder how it would work in B&W?


    Kind Regards

    Brian

    Ahh! That's better!
    I can't quite put my finger on what's wrong - too blue? It's really difficult to tell.
    Anyway, it's just fine in black and white!

    One day I'll make it along - one day!

    Just this guy you know
