View Full Version : Through the Window with 500mm

Drinking coffee this morning I had the EM-5 + Tamron 500 clutched in one hand hoping for some LTTs to visit to cheer me up on a dank, cold grey morning - but no luck.

Then I spotted one of our Hellebores which looked quite interesting despite the conditions so had a go at shooting it through the rather grubby glass.

Here it is, ISO 800, 1/60th sec hand-held, what think you?


as the light got worse this little Squirrel arrived to have a laugh but by dialling in ISO1600 and allowing the low light to do its worst I got this shot of him, (cropped to 10x8 then resized and worked a bit to bring out some detail). Hand-held at 1/200th sec

What do I think? - these are fantastic shots given the conditions you descibe, or in any conditions for that matter!

The sharpness and detail are terrific - shows what that OMD IS delivers.

Excellent Brian, that lens certainly does the business in your capable hands.
Love the tree Rat :)

I think the squirrel is a great capture.

Great shots. You're getting more light than I am in my garden. I'm up at ISO 2000 and 3200 when I point my lens at anything that moves.

I'm just shooting at ridiculously low shutter speeds :)
