Just another random week with the Panasonic GH3, iphone and Olympus OM-D E-M5

sun or moon

This weeks collection of photos really is just random - really random!  It includes a little astrophotography with the GH3 mounted directly to a telescope to photograph the sun and the moon.  I did also photograph Saturn - but was not at all happy with the resultant photos (mainly due to the tracking not working on the telescope.  I also used the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the iPhone 4s.  I seem to always have some device on me that I can use to take the occassional random photo and if that is an iPhone or something similar, such as the Samsung phone then thats what I will use.

Random Wednesday with the Panasonic 7-14mm lens

Mar

Crossing the Brisbane River

My normal random Wednesday routine was interrupted this week due to several workshops I needed to present during the day.  However, I was able to capture a few photos with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the Pansonic 7-14mm lens in between workshops and during the late evening (without a flash).  I had to bump the iso up fairly high and slow the shutter down a little to ensure I was able to get a few usable photos with this lens.  The lens is an extremely sharp lens and under the right conditions you can obtain some really good shots.

Random wednesday with the panasonic gh3

Mar

Aboriginal music in the mall

Over the last three months I have had the opportunity to play with the new Panasonic GH3 and each time I go to take photos I always opt to take the Olympus OM-D EM-5. Don’t get me wrong here - the Panasonic Gh3 is a great camera - there is just a few things that annoy me when I am on the street taking photos. From a video perspective - I only use the Panaosnic GH3 now. I have been meaning to write a review about this camera for a while now but I like to ensure I actually use the camera regularly before making any wild claims about what it can and can’t do.

Random buildings and faces of Brisbane streets

not the ice cream!

This weeks shoot on the streets of Brisbane was a little quieter then usual, maybe due to the constant rainy weather that is still hanging around.   I decided to play with the 45mm f/1.8 lens a little today just for a little change from my obsession with the manual Voigtlander 17.5mm.  It was a little different using autofocus again.  I also did something I don’t do much of  - and that is actually photograph some of the buildings.

March, and its still raining in Brisbane

walking in the rain

Its March and its still bucketing down rain in Brisbane.  I always see these days as a great opportunity to get and take photos with a weather sealed camera rather than sitting at home waiting for the rain to stop.  The results are often very different then every day photos taken in beautiful sunshine.  Today while I was on the streets I was using the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and noticed that in the heavy downpours it was taking photos by itself.

A wet February on the streets of Brisbane

umbrellas and rain

It has been quite wet in brisbane over the last few weeks (in fact it is still raining).  I have had to empty the rain guage several times recently with one of those times having more than 10 inches of rain in it and over flowing.  This is not a common occurrence for Brisbane, despite what people might think after the last couple of floods.  Even though it is quite wet on the streets at the moment it does make for some great photo opportunities if you are willing to get a little wet (and your camera).  This is where having a weather proof camera like the Olympus
