Low Light Examples Around Washington DC

I’ve been testing my Micro Four Thirds equipment around DC since I moved back in July. Low light & long exposure shots have been of particular interest since I ditched my Nikon APS-C gear in favor of MFT stuff this year; smaller & lighter gear become a priority for me. The APS-C gear definitely produces cleaner images in low light but the MFT gear is certainly capable of good stuff with a little forethought and post processing work. I recently learned about the technique of stacking images in “Mean” to reduce noise. I can’t believe how well that works with just 5 images. See this video if you’re not familiar with it:

Even the E-M1 Mark I that I picked up a few weeks ago gives pretty good results (thanks @zuzuman), though my E-M5 Mark II images are less noisy with all other things being equal.

There were big flocks of small, black birds zipping around the Christmas tree near the White House. Those are the black streaks in the sky.
