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 features a selection of photographs of wasps in-flight at 1600 mm efov, captured handheld at Grimsby Wetlands. As regular readers know, from time to time I like to give myself a specific challenge… and push my camera gear… just to see what will happen.
This article discusses some of the general considerations associated with developing a swallow BIF technique, and shares a selection of photographs.
Since earlier articles have already detailed my various bird photography setting options, my primary BIF settings, and how I use Bird Detection AI Subject Tracking, that information is not repeated in this article.
Many of the images in this article were created during my recent swallow Bird AI test at Windermere Basin Park in Hamilton, Ontario. Others were captured during previous visits to this location. This is a lengthy article, so grab a cup of coffee or other beverage.
This article shares my experiences using M.Zuiko teleconverters when shooting handheld, and discusses their relative merits.
Over the past while I’ve had a number of emails from readers asking me to write an article on my bird photography settings. To be honest I’ve avoided writing this kind of article in the past simply because the choice of camera settings is a very personal decision.
The way that each of us set up and use our cameras can vary significantly, based on our personal shooting style, and the equipment that we happen to own. When it comes to bird photography settings, significant differences can exist between photographers even when using the exact same camera.
This article shares my M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS hands-on review, and features a wide selection of images captured with this lens. As I’ve mentioned in other articles, this is not a gear review website. I only do reviews of camera equipment that I actually own and use.
So, this M.Zuiko 100-400 review is based on first-hand experiences as an owner of this particular zoom lens. Since receiving it in late November, I’ve been out in the field regularly, capturing thousands of photographs, in a range of conditions.
Taking a risk with strikeouts is something that we can face as photographers, and in other areas of our lives. In photographic terms a strikeout is an attempted image capture that proves unusable.
