I was practicing Hand Holding technique with an un-stabilized lens & camera combo.

Very cold and breezy day.  This stream froze over in about 3 hours..

These were alll shot with my Oly m75-300mm all at 300mm, and all using the DTC Function (1200mm FF equivalent)

The squirrel shots were from yesterday morning.

Re: Panny 100-300: A fine, sharp lens at 300 mm
In reply to kamiyama, 7 months ago

Looks really sharp. I was considering getting a 300mm manual lens such as Canon FD 300 f4L but this is substantially bigger. Makes me think.

John,

The DTC is short for 'Digital Teleconverter' Function. Several Oly m4/3's cameras, including the E-M5 and E-M1, have this function.

Essentially, with this function engaged the camera crops the original file dimensions by 1/2 to the center of the frame, then resamples that resulting 4 MP file back to a full 16 MP Jpeg file.

The results are very good from my experience and result in very good detail. The benefit is that you can view and compose the final image in the viewfinder while shooting, and what you are getting is a 2X FOV from any given focal length. So the 75-300mm (150-600mm FF equivalent) gives you a 150-600mm FOV (300-1200mm FF equivalent) when using the DTC.

Of course you can do the same thing in post processing -- the DTC simply saves you all the extra work.

I have my DTC Function assigned to my 'Record' Button, so I can easily toggle it on and off.

GH2 with Panny 100-300. I backed off a bit from full zoom for framing, then changed my mind in PP and cropped a bit, so I think this image is within the spirit of this thread.

What I like about this photo technically is how the boardwalk shows the limited depth of field when this lens is wide open, and how it has pretty good resolving power wide open even at (almost) full zoom as long as you keep the shutter speed high enough (1/1000 in this case) - zoom in on the skates and you can see quite a bit of detail.

Shot in Raw and PP in Photoshop.
