OM-D E-M5 does handheld night shooting
May 3, 2012

Ok....I think I'm in love with this camera. I'm not saying it's's not. The buttons are a bit squishy and not as precise as they should be...the menu system is overall terrible (though amazingly customizable), I have this horrible fear that the IS unit will break (when off, the sensor just drops down into the body, and floats around free...kind of scary). But...image quality is excellent for a small sensor (heck, it's pretty darn good for most any sensor, save a recent full frame release), good dynamic range (by far best in class), and the IBIS is outstanding. Like I said, I took a little walk around Columbus tonight with my E-M5 and no tripod, and I was amazed at what I could do.

My favorite of the night: E-M5 and Olympus 45mm f/1.8 @ ISO 640, f/1.8, 1/6 second handheld

And a few more. Being able to shoot at low ISOs and still get usable night photos is amazing. At these longer exposures, it does seem to affect corner sharpness a little, but it allows you to get the shot.

E-M5, Olympus 12mm f/2 @ ISO 200, f/2, 1/4 second

E-M5, Olympus 12mm f/2 @ ISO 400, f/2, 0.4 seconds!

E-M5, Olympus 40-150mm f/4-5.6 @ 82mm, f/4.7, ISO 1600, 1/13 second
