It is always important to consider lens compatibility before buying a new camera body to avoid downstream disappointment. Many photographers are very excited about the introduction of new camera models as they often provide some performance upgrades and new technology when compared to previous generation cameras.
As photographers many of us have had rediscovered moments when we’ve gone through some of our unprocessed image files and found some useable photographs. Over the past few weeks I’ve been cleaning up some old photography files that for whatever reason I left dormant and unprocessed. This article shares some rediscovered moments.
This article discusses the focus stacking compatibility of various Olympus/OM System cameras and lenses and provides a current gear listing. A selection of new in-camera focus stacked images recently captured handheld at the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory are featured.
This article features some Handheld Hi Res HHHR butterfly test images captured last week at the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory. It has probably been over 18 months since I did any photography at this facility due to COVID 19 restrictions. Needless to say, I was a bit rusty. It didn’t take too long to get back in the grove though. 🙂
This article discusses why calculating hit rate is irrelevant for me and does not provide me with any actionable information. Also included in this posting are some images of a clearwing hummingbird moth in flight. These images were captured handheld in my backyard on August 4th. Sometimes it takes a while for me to dedicate time to process my photographs. 🙂
With autumn in Canada fast approaching I spent some time capturing some high ISO bee in flight images with shutter speeds up to 1/5000. This was likely my last opportunity this year to do some testing with fast shutter speeds and related high ISO values with this subject matter. The photographs in this article were captured at ISO values between ISO-2500 and ISO-6400. All were captured handheld with an E-M1X, M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS zoom lens and M.Zuiko MC-14 teleconverter using Pro Capture H.
This article shares some of my favourite Pro Capture images that were created using an E-M1X, M.Zuiko telephoto lenses, and M.Zuiko teleconverters. All were captured handheld. Without question the more that I have used Pro Capture, the more indispensable it has become to my bird and insect photography.
This article shares a small selection of handheld in-camera focus stacked dragonfly images that were captured at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington Ontario. These photographs fall under the ‘push my gear and see what happens’ category. All were captured using an E-M1X, M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS zoom lens, and M.Zuiko MC-20 teleconverter. This set-up was shot fully extended which creates an equivalent field-of-view of 1600 mm. All of the photographs in this article were created during the same photo session as described in my previous article.
This article discusses photographing dragonflies handheld at 1600 mm equivalent field-of-view, and shares a selection of new images. All photographs were captured using an E-M1X, M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS and M.Zuiko MC-20 teleconverter. All images were created with my lens fully extended and fitted with the M.Zuiko MC-20 teleconverter. This produces a focal length of 800 mm (efov 1600 mm).
This article discusses flying into focus which is a technique that can be achieved using some common approaches. Flying into focus can be extremely helpful when trying to capture birds, insects or other animals in flight.
