Longer exposures on the EM-1...
In reply to Messier Object, 3 months ago

This is the thread that made me concerned about using the EM-1 for astro photography. It's quite a long read...

It appears even with long exposure NR turned on (dark-frame subtraction - also slows the camera down), long exposures at higher ISO's on the EM-1 are much noisier than the EM-5 and 'most' other cameras? They think it could be either the PDAF or the lack of the AA filter. This might be a niche problem not affecting many, but it would be a concern for astro shooters.

My 300mm is pending sale now...
