    I posted this reply to another member's thread regarding issues he was experiencing with his new OM-D / IBIS:

    I find the OM-D IBIS to be absolutely revolutionary and an important photography game-changer in many respects. With it properly implemented (ie, set on the correct setting for the situation you're anticipating using it in), I find that I'm easily able to forgo the use of a tripod in capturing a particular shot where prior to the OM-D, I wouldn't have been able to capture a sharp usable image. IT's important to remember that one must STILL employ the appropriate shooting techniques when using new "technology". I still brace myself holding the camera firmly against my body (left hand cradling the lens from beneath, right hand holding camera with index finger on shutter release) or use something stationary and solid to prop the camera against when shooting in low light or with a longish shutter speed. But that said, I've had great results (I think) using the OM-D's IBIS system and couldn't be happier with it.

    Thought it would be a great opportunity to share some of my images shot with the aid of the OM-D IBIS system. Here's a few of mine, let's see yours!

    Interesting thread and great shots but it would be nice to know the exposure times also.

    Thanks for your gracious comments. You're absolutely right about posting the exposure times. I'll try to get on that ASAP. In the interim, as I recently posted the image of the guy with the ring encrusted hand, I remember the exposure there was 1/6 of a second @ f/4 using the Panasonic/Lumix G 7-14 lens.

    Cheers-

    Wes

    7-14 is a great lens. I'd be rather intimidated being that close to such threatening fist. -Chrome

    Wildwiildwes, love the Pedicab. Some of these are pretty long exposures for hand held. Is the ibis absolutely amazing, or are you using a monpod?

    Thanks for the compliment Chrome. ALL of my images using the OM-D are hand-held. Yup, the IBIS is truly amazing! (no mono-pod or tripod).

    Cheers!
