View Full Version : Shock E-M1 revelation!

Despite all the furore over the last couple of weeks, I have found that the E-M1 doesn't only take BIFs!

My first outing, and not a BIF in sight!

All taken with the 17mm f1.8 lens, raw files processed in Lightroom (except the last one), and uncropped. Still setting the camera up, so I am hoping for improvements.

ISO200, f2.5, 1/30

ISO200, f3.5, 1/6, Grainy film effect (the only jpeg)

Nice set but I think you're setting a bad example by posting considered images rather than happy snaps from the new camera.

Like the pictures, the first one seems to have a 3D effect.

Looks like someone shot the shed with a Canon :eek:

Interested in your use of the 17mm as it's one I tried but don't have.

All taken at the bottom of the neighbours "back garden", which we have free access to. Dibnah loves running round the Grove, as we call it.

OK, specially for Weeman, here's a JRIFOF shot. (Jack Russell in Front of Fire).

This is an out-of camera jpeg, cropped slightly, in which the lighting was an awkward mix of low-wattage bulbs, firelight, and dusk from the window. Oh, and light from the telly! I think the AWB coped quite well.

No 2 is very impressive and so is Dibnah in front of the fire. *chr

Nice shots Stephen, considered or not, keep posting. Dibnah looks great too.
That's a pretty special back garden to have to play in.

She's faster and more unpredictable than a BIF when she gets going!

I like #2, perhaps with a slightly faster shutter speed to give more detail to the water. I too thought the old mill house looked familiar from your earlier postings.

Thanks. I deliberately selected a slow shutter speed to test the IS. The water texture is not to my liking; I too prefer a little more movement.
