Documentary Landscape technique
Feb 23, 2013

I used to hike for scenery, but it wasn't the most efficient use of time/energy. Then I started pulling over and shooting from the driver's window. But with fuel being so costly I've begun shooting Landscapes of TV nature documentaries. I've heard of the documentary landscape before, but never realized what it actually meant (until now).

I'm not sure the E-M5 is the best tool for the job. . . there's the E-M5 LaCA and LoCA to deal with, but even with Lumix lenses I don't mind the little bit it takes to clean that up.. But how does one compensate for the CA in the documentary? Should I be looking into the D7100? Has anyone tried this with the E-PL1?

I presume for the Exdeejjjaaaa Sensor a 42" LCD TV is an adequate pairing (using a tripod and staying at ISO 200, naturally).  What do you use?

Any thoughts, and your home landscape experiences, would be welcome. I've written to DXO several times asking for a module to help with this, but so far I haven't heard back from them.
