30 seconds base exposure, with the sensor exposed continuously for 30 minutes. So 60 odd "shots".

Petrogel, it's had a fairly strong shadow push in post.

Interesting shot. Would look very much at home in an architecture book. I love it.

On article Primer: Why would I buy a mirrorless camera? (558 comments in total)
In reply to:

SHood: There is one advantage to mirrorless cameras that was not mentioned. Crop sensor mirrorless cameras can have a much larger viewfinder than a crop sensor DSLR. The latest GX8 (2x crop m43) has a viewfinder the size of FF DSLR and one day the EVF may even be larger.

The crop DSLR viewfinders are beginning to look tiny in comparison.

Because when you increase the magnification from the small APS-C mirror, the OVF looks darker. 4/3s DSLRs had a similar issue.

nicolaiecostel: She's great at what she does but gee, my brain hurts every time I see her hold the lens backwards. Am I the only one ?

I do that a bit when making heavy use of the zoom or manual focus, especially if I want a smooth rotation around 90-180 degrees or so - typically shooting video.

With light gear like that it's fine. In fact it's nice to do it occasionally for a bit of a break. You can see usually she holds the camera the typical way.

Wow. I was expecting this one to be a candidate for first. I think it's a much better image than the voting suggests.

Yes. That last sentence seems to be your problem.

Pentax doesn't know mirrorless is the future. See what Sony is doing?
/sarcasm off

So, you bought a mirrorless about two years ago?

Sirandar: It's embarrassing that none of this made it to the OMD 5 mk1.... and no explanation why not.

I think a lot of the stuff also requires an electronic shutter, which the E-M5 doesn't have. Firmware can't add hardware. There was a very big shift in electronics used between the E-M1 and 5.
