Re: Another photography workshop!

I borrowed Drmarkfís version for a day and wandered around Cambridge with him using it, I had bought a second hand 4/3 7-14 zoom (not the micro 4/3 version) and 99% of the photos Iíd taken were at...

Just opened the window on a dull day in Cambridge and snapped a few birds at ISO6400 and would definitely say there is an improvement in the image noise wise... Goodness knows how they've achieved...

Well,

I've got home and uploaded all the images to the computer and they all look absolutely fine - but awful on the camera!
