Gay Pride parade with manual lens on E-P1
Aug 21, 2012

As if it isn't hard enough to shoot moving targets with my aging E-P1, I decided that the best focal length to cover the recent Copenhagen Gay Pride parade was my old Canon FD 50mm. So, manual focus all the way, and at relatively low aperture values, ranging from 1.4 to 2.8, on moving targets, with loads of noise and distractions.

All in all I got some nice pictues! And to my big surprise, the amount of rejects were not much higher than my normal street shots with the Panasonic 20mm which obviously does auto focus.

Anyway, a picture of a "rabbit" from the day. You can take a guess on the gender of this one
