I like the default settings in E-M1, These are mine fine tunings. Though I do it and change, if I want to go back it’s like a maze, go through every level and find out where it is. Here’s the cheat sheet for my most commonly used.
I always wondered is it worth upgrading a lens. I know an expensive lens has an advantage in low light or taking action photos. What about photos taken in good light at each lens’ best aperture. Used the same white balance,same aperture almost no variation in lighting.
With an Epson P800 printer and Epson Ultra Premium Photo paper tried different print sizes. The main purpose is for me to understand how the different sharpening, color matching works and also to know the limits of sensor ISO.
Prints obviously can be evaluated only by looking at the real paper, I’ll try my best to
With E-M1 Mark ii, I started shooting my usual indoor images with the f/2.8 zooms. With 25% larger image size I was not expecting much difference in low light. But to my surprise the indoor images started looking much better and no blinking low exposure warning sign. When I looked at the details the default high limit is ISO 6400, which was increased from ISO 1600. And they do indeed produce much nicer image.
This is the first of series of tests that I plan to do with the new Mark II. One thing image quality result might not tell you is that the handling of ‘E-M1 mark ii’ is way much better than E-M5 (Btw.. who started this “Mark” naming convention, I don’t like saying it and not easy to type as well, why can’t they just use 1,2,3.. or A, B, C.. ). The immediate feedback after shooting the image, has easier navigation to get to the setting, responsive dials, etc… Continue reading
Just received the O-M1 Mark II. Thanks to return policy and the many good reviews, it’s the first camera I am buying without trying it physically.
Packaged really well. Fells like something expensive is inside it. Doesn’t feel that heavy though. Felt like a very well made camera, no part of it feels cheap. Continue reading
The last few years there is so much advancement in the camera, mainly pushed by Sony, Fuji, Olympus, Panasonic and Pentax. Apart from D500 nothing much groundbreaking from Canon Or Nikon.
Here are my wishlist…
I spend thousands of dollars for a camera and few more thousands in lenses, I have a very good knowledge of how to use them, I even have the camera hanging on the neck, still Continue reading
I went to local store to pickup my Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8, and was surprised that all the cameras I wanted to checkout were in display and ready to operate. It felt like X’mas Continue reading
After a long review of both the format, here is the summary… Real world usage of Full Frame and m4/3
What I liked in D810 or FF sensor
Handling…some how it feels better than even D800E and other Nikon bodies I have used. Strength of sensor to pull back details from shadows, or recover highlights when mistakes are made in exposure, and a very clean image at ISO 64.
Something about capturing red color, Continue reading
