This article provides a link to a YouTube OM Digital CP+ interview done with Setsuya Kataoka, its Chief Technology Officer. This video is in Japanese but it does have some English subtitles. I’ve also put together a brief summary of key points discussed in the interview.
This article features 22 consecutive Bird Detection AI images of a duck landing on snow, captured using the M.Zuiko 100-400 mm zoom. All photographs were captured handheld using an OM-D E-M1X. The incoming duck was approximately 50 to 67 metres away.
Each of us is born with talents, and regardless of what they may be, it is important to let our music out. Our music is how we resonate with the world around us. It is the gift that we can give to others. To help make this spinning orb a little bit better. Even if only for a fleeting moment or two.
As photographers… and as human beings… learning to see more is an important skill that helps to transform how we experience the world around us. From a photographic standpoint, it has always fascinated me how differently people can capture the world around them, even when standing right next to another photographer.
This article shares a selection of new images of various ducks and gulls in flight, and discusses the importance of adjusting to camera gear. Regardless of the camera format, brand and model that we use, these adjustments could involve a wide number of issues.
A few of them include physical layout and handling of our cameras. Learning and navigating menus. Understanding special features and how to best use them. And, working in post with different files than we’ve used in the past. It is also common that key functions like auto-focusing, metering, and white balance may perform differently between cameras.
Experiencing a salad, like so many things in life, is something that we often take for granted… seldom giving it much thought.
In many parts of the developed world we just assume that things are going to be there for us. Food in our local supermarket. Electricity when we flip a switch. A roof over our heads to protect us from the elements. Heat for our homes. Medicine at the pharmacy.
This is not the reality that faces billions of people around the world each day.
Attempting to photograph a bird that is flying in to a crowd of other birds can often be an auto-focus challenge for our camera gear. This article shares a selection of 15 consecutive photographs of a drake Black Duck flying in to a crowd of other ducks situated on a frozen harbour.
This article discusses the importance of reach and buffer when photographing birds-in-flight, and features 24 consecutive handheld images. All photographs were captured using an E-M1X fitted with an M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS and M.Zuiko MC-14 teleconverter.
The photographs displayed in this article are a part of an AF-C +TR with Bird Detection AI run comprising a total of 33 images. The article begins at frame 9 of that run.
Many people enjoy posting their photographs online, and it may be prudent to consider the risks of social media and piracy. Since I am not a lawyer, this article does not suggest that I have any expertise with Copyright laws in various jurisdictions, nor is the intention of this article to recommend that any specific actions be taken. My intent is only to share some of my personal experiences and perspectives.
Eventually the road here ends for all of us… and it begs the question… How would we live our final day if the road ended today? This premise is interesting from both philosophical and practical perspectives.
