Digital Dinosaur and lovely Lumix visit Brugge

It's taken me a long time to get there, but I finally visited Brugge a couple of weeks back. No idea why we insist on calling it Bruges - which is the French way and French doesn't actually go down so terribly well in this part of Flanders. Oh well.....

The 'only' camera I took with me was the E-1, which is as lovely to use as it ever was. And I mainly used my recently acquired PanaLeica 14-150 - quite simply the best superzoom I've used to-date - supplemented by the 25mm Zuiko pancake lens (nice and compact with decent image quality). A few images from Brugge and nearby Flanders Fields (Ypres, Passchendaele):
















If you've not been, I'd highly recommend this beautiful town and its historic surroundings. If you've not tried it, I'd highly recommend the E-1 14-150 combo too! This post isn't intended to click bait, but there are some more images if you really have nothing better to do in my blog link!

Cheers,

Jon

A lovely set Jon. I like them all, but the one of the rooftops is quite special.

That E-1 still delivers the goods I can see!

Yes - variant of a Kodak sensor design also used by Leica and Hasselblad. The colours it produces are lovely.

Re: Digital Dinosaur and lovely Lumix visit Brugge

I looked at your blog Jon and was very impressed with the Bruges set and most of the shots from elsewhere too. I must say the colours out of the E-1 definitely have a certain "je ne sais quoi" about them.

Thank you! You're right about the look of images from the E-1 although it wouldn't be my first choice in poor light given noise quickly becomes an issue. Over the weekend I was taking some publicity shots of a dress rehearsal at a local theatre in South London and the E-1 would have been hopeless for that both in terms of focusing and image quality. I was using ISO3200 even with an f2.8 lens, in quite a dimly lit space, and it's amazing how good the images are from modern equipment. Some things really have improved since 2004!

Re: Digital Dinosaur and lovely Lumix visit Brugge

Well you are certainly doing the camera and lens combo justice Jon those are lovely images and as Paul said a great blog too. Great to see the old lens getting the light it deserves. I know the E1 has a unique colour rendition but I'm sure that little added sparkle is down to the lens. It just seemed to do that to images whatever camera I shot with it. I'm really glad it's got a good home.
