There's image stabilization and then there's image stabilization . . .

Now THIS is image stabilization!



Ten seconds hand held! No bracing, just standin' there real still.

'Course ya' can buy a lot of really good tripods for the price of body only . . .

1. Its the color and clarity that really shine.

Super depth of field to take in everything from the foreground to the distant shoreline and then sweep up and away into infinity and beyond, to borrow that cliche. Great job!

3. Not my shot. Wish it were.

I'm shooting the older cousin of the EM 1 MkII. My EM5 is good for 4 stops correction of camera motion, the I MkII 6.5 stops. Oly is offering a 12-100 f4 with IS that holds hands with the in-body IS that completely obsoletes tripods.

I anticipate the EM5 mkII to go on sale real soon-- there's rumor of a mk III coming soon.

2. Holy cow. That's amazing.

What's your kit? Camera prices have come down so much it makes my stomach hurt...I don't have a valid excuse to go spend money on a new rig, but I can get three times the camera for what I spent on my current set up. Which still works just fine.

4. Not my shot. See the link.

I'm shooting OMD EM5 with lenses from 9 thru 300mm (18-600 35 equiv). The IS on even this first gen OMD is amazing. You have to worry as much about subject movement as camera shake. Now even the EM10 mkII is more sophisticated than my 5. Only thing is I have rain proofing and the consumer level 10 doesn't.
