It was such a gloomy morning, but the photography session had to go on! By the time we headed across the bay to Mumbles, the sun was out, the coats were off and we were ready to take photographs of an area that we had not ventured before!
Armed with the Olympus EPL8 and the 17mm F/2.8 lens, today was a day of 35mm equivalent photography. You know me, I love walking around with just the one prime lens with a 35mm reach, there’s just something about that focal length that I love. Its wide enough to useful, long enough to get the shot, and gives the look that your eyes see. Its perfect, and this lens is so small that it was a joy to use.
All these images have been cropped to 5:4 ratio, as it’s not much difference to the cameras 4:3 ratio. Talking of the cameras aspect ratio, 4:3 is amazing! Why can’t all cameras be 4:3! That extra headroom on compositions is very handy, and the cropping possibilities are far better than the standard aspect ratio of all other cameras. Anyway, these are edited in Darktable from the cameras raw files today (see the last post for jpeg examples).
I hope you like the images, I will be doing a side-by-side comparison of the Fuji’s versus the Olympus dynamic range, colours and low light abilities in the near future. I have had a few people telling me I would struggle with the Olympus, but the reality is, as a day to day camera, it has not let me down in my testing! But more to come. Back to the Fujifilm X-T3 for the next few outings as I need the wider angles for the planned meets!
