As you may have gathered from my last post I have traded in most my Pentax gear and switched to Olympus, giving me superior effective focal length and much better auto focus. I had a trip to Rainham Marshes today with my 1 year old in the buggy, so no serious waiting around, but still managed a few nice shots. This male reed bunting decided to pose nicely.
Towards the end of a fairly uneventful walk round I headed into the cordite store, which is much more sheltered from the wind, to try some macro. There I found this ringlet butterfly with its wings spread. I took this with my new 60mm macro, at arms length at only 100th of a second shutter speed, but it is still sharp. The image stabilisation on the camera seems rather good!
There is another useful feature on this camera; autostacking. This takes a sequence of 8 images and stacks them into 1. I played with it handheld and there was a slight breeze, but this greenbottle came out OK.
The movement of the antennae caused issues when I tried it, but I’m sure a proper go in photoshop (rather than the rush job I have done in Lightromm with spot removal tool) would remove the ghost antennae that appeared.
