Tempt Me to Stay

OK Wanted keep this thread to hopefully your kind guys tempt me to stay by showing me good images of your little ones if your happy to post with them moving and being able to capture sharp images or good images.

This is a let down for me at the moment but I really rather try and stay with the OMD as I have had it out of the bag more than the 7D came out. But it must of getting good images of our daughter. Ive thrashed about 200 so far and just about 6 keepers that not good

Re: Tempt Me to Stay

Well I'm afraid I can't help you. I haven't taken any images of fast moving kids in poor light and at high ISO in my life.
I'm sure that someone on the forum has though.
Deciding if you want to stay with your OMD or not will be entirely up to you.
I get the impression that you are just not happy with the OMD and therefore you will never get the best out of it. Many years ago I saved up and bought a Hasselblad which I still have but it has hardly ever been used. I always seem to reach for my Mamiya
6 x7.
What exactly do you want from the OMD? If you are looking for virtually noiseless images at very high ISO's then perhaps the Nikon D4 might do the trick.
I don't have the same requirement from the OMD that you do. For what I require it
works flawlessly. However I am commissioned to shoot a Bollywood Dance performance on Saturday which will be under variable stage lighting. It is going to be a very steep and very quick learning curve. I will post some images on Sunday and you can see the results. I fully expect to be working at 1600 ISO minimum, I might be wrong but from what I've seen so far I am quite confident that I will get some very usable images from the OMD at the aforementioned high ISO's.
Lets wait and see.

Re: Tempt Me to Stay

Can't show you any low light high ISO moving people shots as I've not got any, but here are some interesting photos taken at night of people on the move etc.

http://robinwong.blogspot.co.uk/2012...t-bintang.html

Hope you find it interesting as you seem to be struggling with the EM-5.

You can download the FULL SIZE HIGH ISO photos too.

Here is another happy chap well worth a look,

The demonstrater EM5 I tried in the shop gave soft images. When I took the SD card home, all the other camera shots were fine, all EM5 soft. No idea why, but the one I bought is fine.

Re: Tempt Me to Stay

I presume from your post your Canon 7D can do all the things you expect of the OMD, so why not post some examples from the 7D of the kind of images you are talking about so we can see and understand what you are expecting from the OMD.

Maybe someone had been playing with the art filters and left it on soft focus.

Re: Tempt Me to Stay

Am going try and master it all today and see what I can do.

Regarding filters surely it won't effect the raw images ?

Well, it may not be exactly what you're looking for, but this is my 2 year old grandson Josh on a playground slide. Admittedly it was taken in good light (Australia). Exposure details are: E-M5, 75mm lens, iso200, f4.5, 1/1000.

Thanks, we bought it from a Peruvian stall here on Haddington market! I think it's a bit warm for over there, but his mum is a bit OCD about not letting him get cold.

Rooky,
If you follow the link that Tom has posted you will see some movement shots taken by
Robin Wong using high ISO.
They are excellent.
