Today I was up early and saw that it wasn't thunder and lightning and looked rather good. I decided to take my Pen EP-3 out with my trusty Orange Brompton for a ride along the Grand Union Canal at an ungodly hour.
As you can see from the first picture there was a mist in the air. I took a picture of this pink narrowboat as I thought the colours I saw would be hard to duplicate in camera. I was wrong. What you see is a very, very accurate duplication of what I saw. This is also a Jpeg straight out of the camera and not a RAW file (which I couldn't be bothered with today).
|Very accurate colours.|
I managed to get quite close to this female Mallard and the sharpness of the feathers is great. Again this and all a the images are straight out of the camera with no tinkering from Photoshop.
|Lovely and sharp.|
I took this at f 5.6 to see if I could get that illusive BOKEH. I was very happy with the results.
The picture of the daffodil really does off the creamy BOKEH (love saying that word out loud) and was very apt, being Mothering Sunday.
|Even more, BOKEH!!|
This last picture of the trees reflecting in a lake was taken using one of the in-camera Art Filters. I like what it can do and can see myself using it quite a bit.
I got so carried away taking pictures of arty bits of scenery and nature I didn't take any pictures of my beloved Orange Brompton! I would have loved to see how vivid the orange would have come out.
This little Pen EP-3 is totally brilliant! In short I love it! The autofocus has a speed approaching that of the Millennium Falcon, when it makes the jump to light speed. I love the looks. I love that fact that it hasn't the weight of a hulking DSLR. I love the pictures it produces straight out of the camera. I love that it is shiny aluminium. I love its retro looks and I love that fact that i now own one!
(Have just come back to this entry after a cup of tea). Goodness me. I do like it don't I.
