More Brighton with EM-1

These are the second set of images I took at Brighton with the EM-1.

It certainly delivers the goods and is a joy to use, the results speak for themselves - all hand held.

Re: More Brighton with EM-1

I've been looking forward to these ever since the first set and they don't disappoint! It looks like the E-M1 has got a cracking new photographer!

Re: More Brighton with EM-1

Thanks both for the kind words.

Apart from the improvements over the EM-5 in autofocus, shutter speed, flash sync,EVF, build and IQ, there is a definite improvement in dynamic range so I for one am a happy bunny and glad I "did the deed".

I was sorry to see the EM-5 go but got a good price as EM-1 is still rare so trade ins have not started in earnest yet and suspect EM-5 trade in prices will fall as more EM-1's hit the counters.

Oohhh, really? Now that WILL be useful for shooting badly-lit musicians.

Thanks for info Ian, I will file it away until mine arrives with its 12-40 lens.

They could be postcards Ian, especially the beach one with the wheel.

Re: More Brighton with EM-1

Very nice set! I noticed that the dynamic range looked good. Which lens did you get with the body?

Nice photos Ian. Really looking forward to getting mine and like you I sold the EM-5 before the bottom drops out of the trade-in market.

Hi Cathrine,

I bought the body only as I have a nice set of 4 primes (12,25,45,75) and the fantastic Pany 100-300 f4 so I am now covered from (35mm equivalent) 24 - 600mm.............don't need anything more.

I do not shoot macro so no need for 60mm - the only lenses I may consider if they are priced low are some 4/3rd lenses but just a like not a need.

Superb camera though and I have no hesitation in recommending it to others, for me it delivers great work and as I favour primes it makes a great kit that is light and easy to carry.

I'm really looking forward to getting mine. I hope to be able to merge my two systems. I'm getting the 12-40mm 2.8 and with a couple of EM-1 bodies, I should be able to get rid of two EM-5s which I think are too flimsy, one underwater housing for EM-5, and two E5s. the E3 is probably not worth anything, and besides - it's a trusty old friend. But with the two EM-1 bodies, a small set of m4/3 lenses, which I seem to build on for underwater use. I also have a rather comprehensive 4/3 collection of lenses, which I love for wildlife and macro.

I'm curious whether the EM-1 will manage the Sigma 150 and 105 macros, though, has anyone tried them? They are painfully slow on the E5.

Re: More Brighton with EM-1

I'm sorry, but all of these are blurred, i have had my em-1 for just over a week now, and i am getting the same.
about 30% of my shots are out of focus, not cosistantly, it is happening with all lenses, apertures and shutter speeds. one shot can be tack sharp, the next blurred.
I have repeated settings lenses etc on the em-5 with no problems.
Some photos taken at 1/10 sec ok, some 4000 sec blurred, these should be easy shots with this stabilizer.
this is also NOT camera shake.
One or two more are reporting this problem, i'm at a loss, going to ring Olympus.
Any one else out there having same problem.
I am not critisizing youre photo's, they are good, just out of focus.
SORRY HELP ?
