A definitive shutter shock test on E-M1 (14mm f/2.5 lens)
Nov 13, 2013

Here we go! This post will (hopefully) prove there IS shutter shock, and allow you to judge for yourself how bad it is, and how grip MAY affect it.

Notes: this test is underpowered, in the sense that I didn't do multiple samples. Just one set for each condition.

General test conditions: f/8.0, M mode with auto-ISO (Except for one series, where I hadn't figured out how to do auto ISO in manual mode yet ). so no "diffraction" nonsense. all shots started at 1/20, then 40, 80, 160, 320, and 500 if present

A) Proof of shutter shock.

B) how does this affect real-life shots?

C) how does grip affect the shock

I took the same target as the first test, and cut the lines out and put them all beside each other.

I will now test with the 12-40mm, and make a follow-up post.
