Catching that propeller with blur
In reply to SLOtographer, Feb 24, 2013

I was surfing down the list here and looking at everyone's nice pix, and thinking "Pity I didn’t take a photo in the last week" when I remembered I had -- well almost.

At Tokua airport,Rabaul, I idly raised the camera to my eye (E-PL3 with VF2) as a Fokker taxied in and was fascinated to see how the EVF dealt with the whirling propellers -- a series of stills with blurred blades.

And, of course, I bethouhght me that the effect looked just right -- if only I could remember the refresh rate of the VF2 I could set the shutter speed for that and I would be right in the ballpark of the blur I wanted in the pic.

Naturally I ​couldn't​ remember the refresh rate so I experimented.

Here's the result through that Princes of Lenses, the 40-150 shooting through a rather grimy window:

Cheers, geoff
