As a follow up to an earlier posting, this article features images of ducks in flight at 1600 mm (efov). All photographs were captured handheld using an E-M1X with its Bird Detection AI subject tracking. The rest of the gear set-up included an M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS and an M.Zuiko MC-20 teleconverter.
This article shares some photographs of ducks performing water landings at 1600 mm efov. These images were captured handheld using an E-M1X (in Bird Detection AI mode) fitted with an M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS zoom and the M.Zuiko MC-20 teleconverter.
I’ve been experimenting for the past little while using the E-M1X’s Bird Detection AI, and there are some practical considerations using Bird Detection AI.
Since selling my full frame camera gear back in July 2015 I’ve had the opportunity to use a few different smaller sensor birding equipment options. Continue reading Smaller Sensor Birding Equipment Options
This article discusses my initial impressions using the M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS with the M.Zuiko MC-20 teleconverter.
It was a dull, grey afternoon yesteday… and the perfect conditions to do an M.Zuiko 100-400 three strike test!
This article features a photograph of a squirrel at ISO-16000. The RAW file was processed using both DxO PhotoLab 4 DeepPRIME and Topaz Denoise AI.
I went out on Saturday to challenge myself photographing ducks in flight… and I ended up with the best photography problem. Over the past number of years I’ve done this particular ducks in flight test a number of times with different camera gear. It involves situating myself fairly close to a large group of ducks, then photographing individual ducks as they take flight, moving right to left in my viewfinder.
This article discusses a gulls in flight challenge that I gave myself, and shares some images I captured during this practice exercise.
As camera manufacturers release their quarterly financial reports it is instructive to look for comments about product mix and profitability. Shifting a company’s product mix is an important strategy to increase average per unit contribution margin and potentially increase related profitability.
