EM5 hummers and more
Sep 9, 2012

Hello All !
Yesterday got to try out my EM5 for some wildlife, specially humming birds.

I used a Nikon flash is AA mode and used quite high shutter speeds, in some I had some slight curtain issues showing in the photo, but I trimmed and cropped them but I was quite happy with the results.

I used mainly my 75-300mm olympus lens.

Gotta say the camera ate batteries and got very hot. I used 3 batteries, one original and 2 Chinese. In some cases I had to turn off the camera because I started to worry about it. In one occasion it got stuck and nothing responded , I had to pull out battery to unlock it.

focus was quite fast, quite accurate even with hummers, obviously i had some lost shots because of focus issues. I had to touch up with MF on some cases also, so the magnification really does help so that the IQ improves.
