Henry Falkner's recent activity

  • I have had my E-M10 II since November 2018, and I have not done any pixel-mapping yet. Here is one of my night shots with the E-M10 II, but I have not done any checking for stuck pixels in it - Henry
  • Does the 40-150 Pro have f2.8 for the whole range? I do keep my SH-50 and SH-1 pocket zoom for that very reason. For Sandra's fashion rush jobs (just as the light goes down), I use the E-M10 II ...
  • 150 + x2 TC only gives you 300mm, and you lose 2 stops or more in the TC. Plus - changing lenses from 14-150 to 40-150 + TC needs removing one lens, and attaching two lenses. That is alright if you ...
  • Created discussion thread SH-1 Full Moon Twice
    The day before - 3 hours 19 minutes after moon rise - The higher in the sky, the more punch I can get out of these shots. 1 hour 33 minutes after moon rise - It is all the crud in the air that does ...
  • Coming from three SH-series pocket zooms, I struggled for months with the E-M10 II buttons, dials, night focus and menu size. Now that I am comfortable with the E-M10 II (particularly since I ...
  • Sandra will not wear that price In NZ the 75-300 II sells close to US$ 400.- new (NZ$ 660.-). Picture I saw this morning shows the consumer 100-400 with a tripod mount - which makes the E-M10 II an ...
  • In November 2018 I got the E-M10 II with the kit lenses 14-42 and 40-150. Changing lenses at the Muriwai Beach Gannet Colony was a pain, but doable - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exz1LiMgjlA&t=846s
  • Replied in Drying process
    I am using an industrial hot air gun in constant motion !!! It is hotter than a hair drier. I am also constantly turning the body or lens that I am drying. The normal use for a hot air gun is for ...
  • I am not in the market for switching brands. In fact I was not in the market for switching models. I was just plain lucky to be offered an E-M10 II with 2 kit lenses for the price of a new SH-2 ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery

  • Created discussion thread SH-1 - The Moon an hour ago
    I was passing time with the moon while Sandra was cooking her steak - Some burning, but no other processing. At 4x Digital Zoom, the picture is still alright for the Lock Screen on my laptop with ...
  • Replied in My C-1400L
    This ferry was waiting for restoration last decade, but sank at its moorings. Date recorded: 25th February 1998 Shop in Queen Street, Auckland, New Zealand during a power cut Date recorded: 7th ...
  • Were these actually taken with a camera? I am not familiar with 'shamble.com'. Is that a landscape generator program? Or are the pictures from a travel advert? The first one appears a little ...
  • Replied in Neowise
    Stacking was worth your time. Henry
  • Replied in Neowise
    Well done! Right gear, right technique. Henry
  • Here are two highly compressed renditions from the otherwise unprocessed camera originals. To reduce file size, and for 33x23 inch prints, I use noise reduction via 'NeatImage V8'. For printing, I ...
  • On my E-M10 II I get noise in plain blue sky, regardless of exposure time and ISO. On night shots, ISO 5000 is still low in noise, but this kicks in at ISO 6400 and above. For examples I have to go ...
  • I have the un-sealed E-M10 II body, but recently added the sealed 14-150 II lens. The sealed lens has done away with the days where I cannot focus because of changes in temperature and humidity. Ho ...
  • Replied in You moved
    1/200 second at this distance is no insurance against 'tearing the shot'. The top of the pole shows that you contracted your hand as you pressed the shutter button. Henry
  • Thank you. I started with the Olympus all-in-one 35mm 3x zoom SLR IS-1000, followed by the IS-2000, about 1990. Still have both. The IS-2000 still has a film in it. This is the Russian Albatros sea ...
