    It's been a little while since I've posted here as I've been enjoying the GR for the last few months, but here's a couple from the other night on Observatory Hill, Sydney.

    EM5 + m.ZD 45mm

    It's definitely nice coming back to the Zuikos, but the EM5 interface felt remarkably clunky after the GR... I think an EM1 might be in the works :smile:

    They are nice Nick. I think you would enjoy the E-M1, especially with the latest 2.0 FW update that includes Live Composite. It's ideal for city night scrapes with light trails etc.

    They look great in B&W, all mine are in colour, and I'm tempted to do some more editing now.

    BTW, What a great location Observatory Hill is!
     
  4. I couldn't really say that there is that big a difference in operation between the E-M5 and E-M1, aside from the grip and extra buttons. That's not a black mark against the E-M1 however, and I prefer both over Ricoh's UI which I could never get dialled into.

    I think that's basically the same as Ricoh's 'Interval Composite'? If so it's been great fun playing with star trails :smile:

    Definitely! It's actually the first time I've been up there...

    The EM5 is almost there, but not quite. At the end of the day, I'd almost consider the EM1 upgrade purely because of the Metering button and bigger EVF...

    It was originally introduced in the E-M10 model & now they have included it in the E-M1 with the latest 2.0 FW update.
    Here is the Olympus FB entry about the feature (on the E-M10) with a video demonstration using it (for a city night scene).

    And here is a comment from someone on it there.
    Reading his blog is useful too.

    Thanks for the link!
     
  8. The VF-4 spec viewfinder is very nice, but my favourite part of the E-M1 compared to the E-M5 is the new sensor and particularly how it handles colours differently than the Sony sensor.

    I thought it was a Sony sensor?
     
  10. Panasonic in the E-M1, apparently. Not hugely different to that in the E-M5 but enough to notice.

    I thought Panasonic shifted to Sony sensors?

    Lol I've clearly been away for too long...
