EM1 nature

Grabbed a few nature shots with the EM1 coupled with the superb Pany 100-300, I am finding this a great combo for nature and longer shots.

Re: EM1 nature

Phenomenal.
Am I right to assume they were all taken with tripod?

Re: EM1 nature

I read somewhere some advice when taking photographs: get close, then get closer still.
I really like the way the tree fills the frame, although the first one is definitely a wall job!

Re: EM1 nature

Thanks all for the feedback, I am finding this a great combo for when out walking as it allows me to capture a variety of subjects without having to get to close - I can fill the frame and isolate from the background as the lens offers great bokeh.

Steve, all the images are hand held - I very rarely use a tripod and certainly not when out walking, I leave the IS on the lens set to on and combo of the EM1 IS & lens IS gives me great stability.

Re: EM1 nature

Great shots Ian. One question do you use both IS systems at the same time? I thought that was a no no as they would fight against each other and cause problems.

Re: EM1 nature

Hi Phill,

I have the lens IS set to on and the camera IS is permanently on and they do appear to work together unless the camera automatically adjusts to accommodate the lens IS.

It is all magic to me and the specifics I admit to not researching, all I know and care about is the ability to use both and get photos I am happy with.

Re: EM1 nature

Ian, thanks for the reply earlier, just to put it into context, using your 100-300 what sort of shutter speed were you using? If Dof is your goal, do you control the range of shutter speed using ISO?
Thanks.

Re: EM1 nature

Thanks All for the feedback,

I do find this combo great for isolation and also for capturing the damsel/dragonflies.

I do shoot using auto ISO and these were shot in aperture priority and in most cases wide open, the Pany 100-300 to my mind delivers some great results and has a nice bokeh as well.
