Low light, high ISO, rubbish BIFs

I went to a Short Eared Owl hotspot late afternoon and tried a few BIFs under ridiculously poor lighting in misty conditions. The birds were performing OK with aerial combat and much calling but there was little chance of any decent shots. However these are the best I could manage and realise now I should have just gone back home, all at least 150 metres away:







And this one of a herd of Roe Deer around 600 metres away. Don't know why I do it under these conditions but I can't not take a photograph just because of bad weather - one day I'll learn!



David

Re: Low light, high ISO, rubbish BIFs

What ISO were these with David, looks like ISO6400 from the images

(its always tempting to give it a go isn't it, one day the Olympus Pixel Pixie may just happen to be helping and you may get "The" shot )

I think the Roe deer picture looks rather natural; like it

Brian,
Using FxiF it reports that images 1 & 4 are ISO 3200, whilst 2 & 3 are ISO 12800
Its remarkable how much Olympus high ISO has been improved in the OM-D range.

Re: Low light, high ISO, rubbish BIFs

If people upload to the gallery with the EXIF intact(as David did) you can see it from there, just click on the little camera symbol.

No need to any plugins or uploads from other site.

Re: Low light, high ISO, rubbish BIFs

thanks Andy, I knew that was possible but hadn't remembered the "camera" step so kept being frustrated when trying to read the EXIF

just spotted after your kind help (its an age thing, if I don't do something like this every day I forget how to do it, which I why I tend to stick to tried and tested routines that are embedded in my memory)

Re: Low light, high ISO, rubbish BIFs

I hope you don't mind David but I copied your image and even though its on 72ppi and small, put it through noiseware pro then gave it a quick work up in PSP 12 (my web processing prog of choice) and the results looked significantly better than here (mind you, its never going to be as good as it would be shot at ISO200 in "proper" light )

Are these images SOOC?

(wiped from my machine now)

No these are from RAW processed in LR5.3. I'm pleased that you managed to get better results than me but expected as pp is a weakness of mine with more difficult images as these. I still have to have a go in another couple of software packages so I may achieve better results.

Despite the poor quality of these images they do indicate that the E-M1 does AF comfortably on moving targets in adverse lighting conditions, I estimate that 60% of shots taken were in focus. I used S-AF, 10 fps with 5x magnified single target point.

Which Web browser do you use? I find the FXIF plug-in for Firefox is excellent (on Windows as least).
