  • Gulls in flight with the EM1.2 3.0 firmware

    here are some photos taken the other day after having updated the EM1.2 FW to version 3.0, coupled to the 300 F/4

    Settings:
    CAF (not CAF-TR)
    5x5
    F/4
    Auto ISO, min shutter speed 1/1600
    CAF sensitivity +2
    Focus limiter: 5 meter ... 35 meter, except from when photographing the larger gulls which would sweep along the shoreline on the upwind formed by the strong on-shore winds hitting a steep ridge.

    Light conditions were shifting quickly from sunny to overcast.

    Photos are taken at two locations, one with on-shore winds and high perspective 25 meters above sea level, the other with off-shore winds and low perspective from 5 meters and down to water level if you dare... Good thing the setup is splash proof.

    Black-headed gull



    Common gull



    Herring gull




    Great black-backed gull


    I believe the setup delivers.

    Thanks for looking
