Robin

Processing the RAWs from the MK2 is a new challenge. This was taken today while waiting for the Fieldfare to make an guest appearance. Spent a couple of hours freezing in the hide, but no show.

This was EM1 MK2, ISO 800, heart shutter low, 300mmf4 @5.6 and managed a 1/40th sec. This is a 10mp crop resized.

How does it look to you?

Re: Robin

It looks stunning. Great feather detail and the colours look very real and rich.

Why do you say that the E-M1ii raw processing is a challenge?

Re: Robin

"A new challenge", rather than a big one, as they are different from the EM1 RAWs. Finding a "new" set of Parameters to end up with what like is just a matter of time and practice.

Re: Robin

Thanks for your comments.
I think most of the problems I was seeing were due to DPI scaling in Chrome which means I'm not seeing web photos at 1:1. Doesn't seem to be a good way to fix it if you use custom scaling in Win 10.... At least I know!

Re: Robin

I have a couple of Robins that visit our garden - would love to get a picture as good as that.

Re: Robin

Definitively better than the old 75-300mm. I took some pics a couple of days ago, and yours have much better definition.

Re: Robin

The detail and brilliant colours of the robin are perfect in my opinion.
