Olympus superb IBIS becomes part of the creative process @ Feira de São Mateus in Viseu

Great IBIS can be part of the creative process – this was I decided to do @ Feira de São Mateus in Viseu, Portugal this summer. Taking pictures at extremely slow shutter speeds (1/5 sec, 17mm, f16 photo above) handheld is by no means an easy task.

When you push Olympus IBIS to the limits, its when you get astonished by it. The photograph above was made with a shutter speed of… 5 seconds – yes 5 seconds, handheld, 25mm f1.2 M. Zuiko PRO Lens @ f16, ISO 200.

With the same lens, set @f4, this an exposure of 1/8 seconds. Notice how tack sharp everything not moving is.

Half a second, f9, ISO 64, 7-14mm f2.8 M.Zuiko PRO Lens – handheld… The fact that you do not have to use a tripod gives you an enormous flexibility on the field – easier to choose the angle, much easier to compose the image as you wish, you blend seamlessly with the crowd and you carry much less weight – avoiding the nuisance of having to carry a cumbersome tripod has no disadvantage whatsoever.

One of the best features Olympus E-M1 Mark II has is its HI-RES Mode. The camera can produce up to 80MB RAW images with stunning detail, extremely high dynamic range and superb color rendition.

This clever feature provides professional and amateur photographers with the ability to produce stills that rival the best medium format cameras available today – in a perfect slim, light, fast, durable and fashionable body.

These images were produced at Feira de São Mateus in Viseu, Portugal – this is the oldest fair in the whole of the Iberian Peninsula, a real pearl shining now for 626 years (yes, in 2019 the fair celebrates edition 627)

These are hi-res jpegs (far, far, from the detail, resolution and depth the originals have, but still I challenge you all to have a good look at every single one of these photographs… This is absolutely stunning stuff.
