    Hello everyone. I have been lurking in the forum for a few months and trying to find myself an excuse to get into m43. I finally found an excuse last month after my family confirmed our trip to Europe. I bought an OMD, brought it to Europe and loving every bit of it. Good IQ, fast focusing and decent high ISO quality. This is the first time I was on a trip without lugging my DSLR. Boy... my neck and shoulders are still thanking me for it after the trip. :biggrin:

    After a few weeks of using the OMD, I am still exploring the functions and features of the camera, as well as tips and tricks in m43 format in general. Hopefully I can pick up a few hints from the veterans in the forum.

    Regards,

    Kiley

    My First Picture Post

    Thank you folks for the warm welcome. :smile:

    Just finished editing and uploading the pictures for the trip. My first outing with the OMD. Just want to share a few of them taken at Lucerne, Switzerland. It's such a beautiful place.

    The medieval Chapel Bridge at night (The combination of IBIS and high ISO capability of the OMD is just unbelievable.)

    Looks like your transition to the OMD went very smoothly.
    Nice images.

    Welcome aboard.

    Would you mind sharing the shutter speed/ISO and whether you hand held the two shots of the bridge? Great images, all. Thanks for sharing!

    Dennis, not at all. The one outsite the bridge was take with my hand resting on a handrail with shutter set at 1.5 sec @F/5 ISO 800. The other one was handheld with shutter speed at 1/13 sec @F/2 ISO 800.
