RIAT + 40-150 pr on EM-5 mk2 = Joy

I spent a wonderful day at RIAT on Sunday (despite a 1.5 hour jam meaning we didn't arrive until 11.30 )

My first chance to really give the new system (and myself) a work out and overall the outcome was a real delight, physically for me as after 6 hours of continuous hand-holding I feel great today and also for the system.

A bit of work to do on my over-head hand-holding technique (I was waving the camera about like a feather duster at times! ) but also I was getting some focus lock problems + "ghosting" under some conditions.

The first appeared to be related to the fact that whilst fiddling with the button setting the day before I had set the LN button to 2X digi TC, once I cleared this setting focus lock become consistently accurate again (I had spotted that at some point I activated digi TC which appeared to mess focus up with the 1.4 X TC attached)

the ghosting was, I think, possibly caused by the protection filter I was using against all the soot and kerosene vapours mixed with runway dust blowing about)

I've started a flikr gallery of pics here:


but won't bore you with all the images I post there, just a few of my favourites from the first bit of processing done so far

all pics cropped and then downsized to 1500 pix for posting
