This article shares some photographs from a recent dragonflies with MC-20 handheld test that I did at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington Ontario. While my favourite teleconverter is the M.Zuiko MC-14, I do occasionally use the M.Zuiko MC-20 when I need some additional reach.
This article discusses some of the approaches that can be used when working around rolling shutter effect is required. As is often said, there is no such thing as a perfect camera. Everything photographic comes with some kind of trade-off. Some cameras are more prone to rolling shutter effects than others. So, if you experience some rolling shutter effects with your camera gear there are some things you can do to try to minimize these distortions.
This short article features 6 consecutive images of a dragonfly being attacked by a much smaller insect, perhaps of wasp of some sort. All of the photographs were captured handheld using my E-M1X’s Pro Capture H technology.
I recently had the opportunity to photograph some dragonflies at the RBG (Royal Botanical Gardens) that were frequenting one of the ponds. The breeze was a bit calmer than it has been in the past so I decided to try my hand at some Handheld Hi Res images, as well as capturing some dragonflies in flight.
This article discusses the benefit of custom modes and illustrates this with 18 recently captured consecutive handheld images of a kingfisher in flight.
A few days ago I went to Hendrie Valley early in the morning to see if I could capture any images of birds-in-flight. This season has not been particularly productive so my level of optimism was modest.
This article features some in-camera HHFS macro flower photographs captured with a 16mm extension tube and M.Zuiko 60 mm f/2.8 macro lens. Falling firmly into the ‘test’ category, the images in this posting were created simply to see what would happen when macro flower images were captured handheld using in-camera focus stacking technology, and a 16 mm extension tube.
After a two year hiatus caused by COVID-19 the Hamilton Spectator Open Garden Week has returned and is in full swing. My wife is an avid gardener and she has always enjoyed visiting local gardens and talking “all things gardening” with the homeowners. This article shares a selection of images that we captured over the last few days.
This article features a number of new images of terns at Grimsby Harbour with most of the birds in-flight. This has been an unusual spring birding season with some locations like Hendrie Valley not being very productive.
This article shares some in-camera focus stacking test images captured handheld with an M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS zoom lens. I really didn’t know what to expect using my E-M1X’s in-camera focus stacking capability with this particular lens. In the past I most often used the M.Zuiko PRO 40-150 mm f/2.8 zoom or the M.Zuiko 60 mm f/2.8 macro with in-camera focus stacking.
The 100-400 does have a reasonably short minimum focusing distance of 1.3 metres, so I thought this test was worth a try. These test photographs fall under the ‘let’s see what happens’ category.
