Pre-Shutter Frames

This article shares an image run of 15 consecutive photographs and discusses various Pro Capture settings with some emphasis on Pre-Shutter Frames. One of the technologies that I find indispensable with my E-M1X is Pro Capture. I use both Pro Capture L and Pro Capture H on a very regular basis when photographing birds-in-motion as well as flying insects such as bees, wasps, butterflies and dragonflies.

Bird AI with Pro Capture L

This article shares a selection of Bird AI with Pro Capture L test images of gulls in flight that were captured handheld during an intensive practice exercise in September 2021.

Egrets Landing Before Sunrise

This article shares two image runs of 5 and 6 consecutive photographs, showing  egrets landing before sunrise at Hendrie Valley. Ordinarily I wouldn’t even bother to attempt to photograph a bird-in-flight this early in the morning since it was only about 6:30 AM. The primary reason I had arrived early was to do some pre sunrise landscape photography.

Swan on the Run

This article features 24 consecutive images of a swan on the run crossing the surface of a pond at Hendrie Valley in Burlington Ontario. I made a quick focal length adjustment part way through capturing this series of photographs, going from a focal length of 508 mm (efov 1016 mm) to 400 mm (efov 800 mm). When we photograph birds-in-motion we sometimes need to make a quick focal length adjustment to maintain the relative framing of the subject in our image run.
