Rob, you have been shooting the XT3 and the EM1 II it seems. Which do you like best?
Hi @ derelict
Ive been using the EM1X more recently than the EM1mk2.
The EM1/2 images are older
There are advantages and preferences with both
The image quality is better with the XT3 (as is lower light shooting) but the EM1X is very nice to handle and more responsive
Wifi transfers to iPad etc are very much quicker on the 1X than the XT3 which is frustrating by comparison
When shooting Speedway this is a big advantage as I try to post images the same evening for the fans to see as soon as possible
The EM1X with 12-100 is a very nice package and the most comfortable to use all day when the racing is quite close to my viewpoint - I will be trying this combination for Speedway this year
Ive now sold my Fuji 100-400 as it is a bit too cumbersome for me with my back problems and I will now be reverting to the Panasonic Leica 200 f2.8 and 1.4 tc for longer range telephoto with the EM1X
Im probably going to keep the XT3 + 50-140 f2.8 for the moment so I’ve still got something better in low light especially for evening Speedway
Ill probably evaluate my choices further as I go this season
Regards
Rob

Hi folks.. been a while (except for Rob above... ;))

I thought I would delve into a couple of images that I processed last year... and then again a few minutes ago. (please note.. the links are solely to the image and not to my account, per se'.. the are purely to show the changes)

From the Australian Rally Championship opening round in Busselton/Nannup Western Australia, 2019, comes a couple of images from the short 'urban' track of SS1 and SS2.

And now for the two 'updated' images.

your thoughts?

Was theoretically there for dragon boats but didn't have a timetable so arrived way too late for racing... found these instead. First time attempting this sort of thing.

The revised versions are much better - especially the first one - much better contrast and seems sharper 👍

I still need to work on processing.
For some reason it seems sharp and is sharp and then it doesn't.
Oh yes.... some were published ;)
Hmmmm
