Newent

My wife was involved in a vintage event in Newent, Glos yesterday so I took the EM1 along to see what was going on around the streets - very much an anti climax in both cases but managed to grab a few street shots.

Could be psychological but the AF appears to be better and images are now spot on sharpness wise, here are some of the images from yesterday.













A couple of colour shots from the lake area

Re: Newent

A good set but No4 stands out as a great moment.

Re: Newent

Not tried it in really low light but seems fine in the light levels so far. I am sure Olympus has made changes other than the ones they advertised, the focus accuracy definitely seems better than before!

Re: Newent

Thanks Gregles,

I use Silver Efex Pro for my B&W conversions as I find it delivers great end results and offers a great variety of options during processing.
