During a recent visit to Bird Kingdom I had the opportunity to capture a small selection of Laughing Kookaburra HHHR images. Experimenting with Handheld Hi Res mode with my Olympus OM-D E-M1X is always an enjoyable pastime.
NOTE: Click on images to enlarge.
Our first Laughing Kookaburra HHHR image is a straight side profile.
Here is a 100% crop from the above image.
Our second sample Laughing Kookaburra HHHR image has a slightly different pose and more dramatic lighting.

Our final sample Laughing Kookaburra HHHR images is a portrait orientation.
The 100% crop is perhaps not quite as sharp as the first two. This may have been caused by a slight movement with the bird during image capture.
If you own an Olympus OM-D E-M1X or E-M1 Mark III and haven’t tried the Handheld Hi Res mode, you’re missing out on a very interesting and capable feature.
Photographs were captured handheld using camera gear as noted in the EXIF data. All images were produced from RAW files using my standard process.
