This is continuation of Part 5 – Indoor Low Light
I took photos in the following conditions.. Printed them at the equivalent size of 16×20. I let the camera choose the shutter speed and ISO.
|Inside train at night time||Identical, ISO2000 of D810 is same as ISO800 from Pen-F.|
|Near the window shade with natural light||ISO200,f/2.8,1/60||ISO 400,f/4, 1/60||Olympus , most likely at f/2.8 the lens is sharper than f/4 nikkor|
|Day time inside the house||ISO 1600, f/2.8, 1/13||ISO 7200, f/4, 1/25||Olympus , ISO 1600 at m4/3 kind of equals ISO 5000 with this lens.|
|Daytime with the face in dark shadows||ISO 200, f/2.8, 1/640 sec||ISO 200, f/4, 1/200th sec||Nikon, at same ISO there is no comparison with FF for pulling the shadows|
|Daytime outside with proper lighting||ISO 200, f/2.8, 1/400 sec||ISO 200, f/4, 1/320th sec||Identical , when the lighting is proper and no tonal adjustments are needed, theres noting much in FF other than able to make larger prints|
|Nighttime portrait with the skyline||ISO 640, f/4, 0.6 sec||ISO 3200, f/5.6 , 1/4th of sec||Used fill flash. Liked the results Olympus better, m4/3 has better DoF to keep both People and background city slightly in focus|
|Nighttime inside restaurant||ISO 12800, f/4 and 1/15th of sec||ISO 1600, f/1.4 and 1/15th of sec||This I cheated with f/1.4 prime for m4/3|
|Nighttime inside the house||ISO 1600, 1/80th||ISO 1600, 1/50th of sec||Nikon,|
|Sporting action indoors||Neither,I shot at max of 1/250th of second, Which is too slow for what I wanted to capture.
Need faster better zoom.
This photo is with a tour group with city skyline in the background. To get reasonable focus on the buildings, I have to use f/8 or at least f/5.6 which forces higher ISO to capture enough citi lights. Can’t also use longer shutter speed, as street lights will cause a blur on faces. This is one of the places m4/3 sensor with small sensor has advantage over the bigger sensor.
Nikon combo holds the advantage only when the light is unfavorable and I had to lot of photoshop work to do correct the shadows. If not i would prefer to keep m4/3 combo with me, just because at f/4 the 24-120mm is not that great.
This is where there is no real usage of better Image Stabilization with m4/3 body as I hardly go slower than 1/30th of second.
