Looks like you're having a tough time in Prague Ian! I really love that shot in the tunnel though - stunning.

Yes, it looks like a tough job but somebody's got to do it. I too really like the tunnel shot but what did the poor, disconsolate chap do to be banished like that? Did he ask if Olympus would be producing a full frame camera?

Lovely pictures

There are of the nature though that makes me think its the photographer and support that make the great photos - I bet they'd have looked equally as good on pretty much any camera.

That's not to say I'm not lusting after the camera

One thing not conveyed in the shots is just how cold it was. The poor models were very hardy. The tunnel shot was of an actor who was part of a segment of the day where we shot video clips contributing to a short action movie to test the improved IS and movie capabilities of the E-M5 Mark II.

Re: My first E-M5 Mark II shots

Looking good so far Ian, you got some lovely shots, the tunnel and that penultimate close up are my favourites. Camera seems to be performing nicely at 1600 iso with the 75mm in that close up. Did you push the iso any higher in those dark conditions?

No I was using Auto ISO limited to 1600. We were presented with very dim conditions in order to show the effectiveness of using very wide apertures and hand held stability with the improved IS.

I was advised that the E-M5 II sensor is quite closely related to the E-M10 one.

So you are saying that the camera should be given to a talentless newby to show how good the camera really is? I'll do it for expenses!

Really nice photos Ian, you certainly deserve to share the credit with the new camera!

Cheers,

Ralph.

Thumbs up Re: My first E-M5 Mark II shots

I really like the "Steam Punk" genre, and the lighting is very good.

I appreciate you are there for reviewing the camera, but opportunities like this need to be grabbed and you certainly have done that.

Re: My first E-M5 Mark II shots

Hi Ian

Nice shots, Can you let me know if all the shots were taken using the available light or if off camera flashes were used ? also which camera settings were used to avoid noise at higher ISO?

Regards
Rahul

No flash was used in any of the shots and most were taken at ISO 1600 and full aperture or near full aperture and all were hand held. All the camera settings are in the gallery (click on each image).

Ian

PS Noise filter was switched off and all the shots are in-camera JPEGs.

Re: My first E-M5 Mark II shots

ISO 1600 is quite moderate for the modern MFT sensors and, if the exposure is correct, shouldn't require any noise filtering or reduction.

Imagine saying that 5 years ago!
