    How about a dance thread. It's challenging, but satisfying to get a keeper. P5070015. P5070494. P5070559. P5070672. P5070398.

    This year, I volunteered to videotape the school's nutcracker performances and had my hands full learning life in the booth/. I'd didn't dedicate much times to stills. Not many good ones this time round. Next time...

    Just adding a note. Sometimes we debate importance of FPS and how many is enough. In the pictures of leaps above you can see that most have symmetry - legs forming a straight line, legs symmetric to floor... it's impossible to time that reliably. The speed of em1.2's electronic shutter makes it so much easier to get shots at the critical instant. Just a little off makes the shot unusable. Mk 2's speed avoids that miss very consistently.

    I still miss focus too often, but missing timing has become uncommon...even with older 4/3 lenses. A LOT of deletions though. :)
