I took a few shots yesterday at what I thought would not have been possible even with my FZ10 and its IS let alone with the E1 + 14-54. Not only am I pretty impressed with the E1's noise levels and detail at ISO400 but ISO 800 to my eyes wasn;t too bad at all considering the low light and shutter speeds used. Converted from RAW in Lightroom. Minor USM. Here they are:

1. ISO 400 @ 1/6 sec f4.5 (slowest I've taken so far - not tack sharp at 100% but its still pretty good and shockingly in focus too)



2. ISO 800 f5.0 @ 1/15s




3. The first shot of the day - taken during lunchtime while at work. ISO 100 f4.0 1/80s





I'd be really interested to see whats the lowest shutter speed that you guys and gals have managed to get handheld with your Olympus and any tips and tricks that you use.

Cheers

Hi Gaggu

Thanks for the comment although I wouldn't call it fantastic . Its ok and that one is the best of 4 attempts at the same shot - I'm going to print it out on the weekend to see how well it prints although I'm not expecting miracles.

Cheers

The composition has captured a lot of visual there. Motion
and still ... its all there. Its quite alive ... as I see it Good shot.

BTW ... what size prints do you take ? What du use
for printing ?

1/4 second, the attached image below, one of those times I didn't have some type of support available while shooting in Paris, be it a chair, column, railing etc.....

of course, it helped I was shooting with the 7-14. The wider you go, the slower you can get away with. One good technique is to shoot in threes in continuous mode. By pressing the shutter release down and holding it down for three shots you've got a better chance to get one sharp image since the shutter pressing doesn't happen on shots 2 and 3. That used to be an expensive method when film was used, but today......fire away!

Hi Greg

That is such an impressive shot and what really adds to its is how detailed and clean it looks and when you know that it was taken at 1/4s and hand held its just amazing.

Gaggu,

I'm going to see how that one comes out as an 8x10 and get it developed by the local Asda store (walmart) who print it for you on a pretty decent Fuji papaer for just £1.10 (approx $2).

Cheers

HarjTT

Here's one of mine, I was sitting on the sidewalk at a music festival about 2 weeks ago...not much in the way of composition, but was tired and bored and was playing with my camera. Info: 1/10 sec, F-stop 3.9, ISO 800.

Greg - that's a great shot! excellent details.

Harjt - All shots are good, but I personally like the third shot, nice!

Donna - you could have straightened out that a bit, otherwise a good shot.

Here is my handheld - f3.5 14mm iso100 1/5sec (viva las vegas!)

Could this shot be straightened now? I felt this was a "throwaway" shot and didn't bother...Donna
