Visited Night Safari. It was impossible to take photo when on the tramcar, so walked around again, then encountered feeding to lions. Shot at super high ISO speed of 12800. No chances with normal ISO speed at all on 1/1.7 sensor size camera. Post-processing to reduce noises was also hard and details were lost.
It has been a while from the last post. Now I want to restart.
Recent digital cameras have wifi function, and manufacturers are offering free app for mobile devices like iPhone. I have ever used apps from Sony, Canon, and Olympus, and Olympus’s OI.Share is significantly easier to use and having many useful functions.
Probably all apps will let you import photos from your cameras. Live view shooting and remote release will also be available in most apps. In addition to these, OI.Share enables you to log GPS records and embedding them into your photos. Furthermore, Olympus’s proprietary art filter can be applied to your photos. It is available not only to those shot by Olympus’s but all photos in the device, including iPhone’s photos or those imported from non-Olympus cameras. Hence, if you are interested in art filters, even you are not an Olympus user, it may be worth downloading and trying.
It has been a month since last update. I will be out of town until early next month, so I will upload new photos in this year after I come back.
I bought a new camera. Olympus STYLUS 1. It’s a compact digital camera, not lens interchangeable.
Recently I really think that bringing camera and releasing the shutter is the most important for photo shooting. Big & heavy body and many lenses make me feel reluctant to take out, especially when going out with family. However, some objects cannot be shot without appropriate lens. Even with lenses, shooting chance may be often missed while changing lenses.
Now I bought STYLUS 1 to reduce stuffs for my coming travel. STYLUS 1 covers FF-equivalent 28mm-300mm with constant F2.8. No need to have tele zoom or single focal lenses. The size of the sensor is small and I need to compromise the quality and bokeh. But I want to prioritise not missing the chances.
