Kennesaw Photo Meetup – 11-10

Olympus E-PL1 and Canon 50mm f/1.4 FL

Notes: Even for these Meetups, where it is more about posed shots, I still enjoy taking event style photos.  I’ve always found that people are most attractive when they are themselves and at ease.  It’s the same mentality that gives a second photographer at a wedding more of a creative advantage.  You are more free to just pay attention to things and the niceness of people.  Haven’t forgotten about the Olympus E-PL1.  Used it with the built in grainy black and white mode, coupled with a vintage Canon 50mm f/1.4.  Other shots with the Nikon J1 and Canon+Nikon.  So that’s about all the current sensor sizes around my neck.

Nikon J1, existing light. Of course it is grainy when compared to the FF picture (keep in mind the kit lens is f/5.6), but I think this little sensor will shine when there are f/1.4 lenses available for it. If the situation requires ISO 3200, well you shouldn’t even take the picture.

Nikon J1, ISO 640. Up to 800 and even 1600, the little Nikon is on par with the cameras that used to be top notch. Technology marches on.
