Indoor Sports with 5R + OM Zuiko 50mm 1.8
Jan 27, 2013

Glasgow No Gi open 2013 (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu)

Having tried this before with a Fuji Bridge and got horrific results, so was hoping for better results with the nex and some of the legacy primes I have. I find this a very difficult environment to shoot in and was hoping the faster primes would allow me the 1/500th of a second shutter speed I wanted, I tried the Zuiko first and found it worked just fine so stayed with it,had to shoot wide open though!

I was told before I'd have to get some expensive glass to get anything from this environment but the zuiko only cost £25.

Incidentally I took around 700 shots over 5 hours (due to burst mode) and I still had 30% of my battery left?! I've noticed others on here complain about the nex 6 and 5 R battery life, I guess this must have been due to the manual lens?
