The grey and boring November weather continues. While November has been quite dry, the terrain is still wet from all the rain that fell during September and October. The days are getting quite short, so we could really do with some snow to brighten up the surroundings. Last year full winter started around this time, but the weather forecast does not give much hope currently.
There was some discussion about the effectiveness and some problems with the Olympus in-body image stabilization (IBIS) on the internet, so I decided check it out a little, even though I've had no problems with it. The reputed problem mainly seems to concern the E-PM1 model and has been reported to cause blurring at safe shutterspeeds. My tests have not showed any such problems, and the IBIS is quite effective, yielding some 2-4 exposure steps of stabilization. E.g. most pictures are sharp when using the 20 mm lens (40 mm equivalent) with exposure times as long as 1/5 s. With 1/10 s there is almost never any shaking induced blurring.
Grey colors for grey weather.
I'm still very much a color photographer.
Confused. Is this spring or fall?
This oak plant hasn't yet given up.
