Hi there,

My name is Marcelo and I'm new in this neighborhood, I was reading the threats in this forum for the last 10 days and today I'm posting one of my last pictures with the E5 and the Zuiko 11-22mm.
I'm very inspired for the great pictures of Zig-123 and maybe I'll buy this weekend a EC-14 or EC-20 for my 50-200mm ED... I really don't know yet.

I hope you like it.

Regards.

Marcelo

Hi Guys

Some pretty fine shots .. so its good to see that some of us are going out and shooting at night. Even over at DPR, I've seen very few night time shots. I'm planning on changing my own habit and going out and takign a few shots of the city at night.

Mike 2.5 secs is very impressive. The best that I've done to date was 1/3s with the E1 + 14-54 and still get everything sharp.

Bob & Marcelo, welcome to the forum! MArcelo thats a pretty fine pic of Central park and the NY skyline. Bob, those are very nice esp at ISo800/ISo1600 esp the second shot, where was that taken if you dont mind me asking ?

Cheers

Harj

Great photographs guys, I am amazed still at the hand held shooting. My camera has image stabilization and I still get shaky shots. These are sweet!!!!!

Marcelo, welcome to the forum. Very nice work!!

Bob, I agree with Harj, very nice!! Frank

Some tips...don't breathe...don't exhale fully, don't inhale fully... before the shot just take in enough breath to sustain you for the duration of the exposure.

Gently squeeze down the shutter release...while the shutter is open keep your finger pressed down, don't release the button until the shutter is closed again.

Of course there's holding the camera properly, and positioning your legs for balance. And don't work yourself up for the shot...the more you are holding the camera up to your eye trying to work yourself up, the more stressful you will be and shaky...just relax.

Hi Marcelo,

Welcome to the Oly forum, here at Steve's Digicams. I'm flattered that you mentioned me by name but, trust me, there are many really fine photogs here on this site. This is a somewhat different forum than the one you're normally used to, in that, there is less angst over the plight of Olympus, less bickering over trivial matters and just a more fun place to share ideas, ask questions without fear of ridicule, as well as learn from one another.

I love your composition of this night scene from Central Park. Well done.

Welcome aboard.

As for the EC14 or the EC20, I have and use both with the 50-200mm ED lens.
My experience with these are that both work very well with the 50-200mm ED.
The EC14 provides sharper out of camera jpegs than the EC20. However, the images taken with the EC20 do sharpen up very well with some post processing. I use the ACR 6.3 in CS5 for most of the pp work.

Zig

Hi Bobbert,

Great night scenes from Belgium, the country of my birth. My family emigrated to the US when I was 4yrs old but hope to go back and visit some day.

Excellent shot Marcelo, and welcome to the forum. A lot of knowledgeable and friendly folks on this forum, you will feel welcome here.


P.S. to Bob. Welcome aboard also. I've seen your posts often in other forums, and forgot that you weren't already a regular in the Oly forum.
