E-M1X Terrific Red Kite Images

Somebody on DPReview has just posted some superb Red Kite images, taken with the E-M1X at a feeding station in Wales. Here is the link:

He has included many of the camera settings and I am interested to see that he used 1/4000 sec exposure, which is considerably faster than I ever use. He also uses manual exposure, metering from grass in front of him. I can see that this works if you are in a fixed position in a hide but is less useful if you are standing in the open and turning round all the time or if the light is continually changing. Nevertheless I might give it a go sometime.

It is great that there are finally some really good E-M1X images starting to appear, taken by actual owners of the camera.
