Yes I did. I am getting quite good and consistent results now after practicing and learning how to take advantage of the C-AF. These shots would have been near impossible with the E-M1 Mark 1 (or just plain luck).

Next I need to figure out how to make use of the C-AF+TR and also the Pro Capture.

Very good Tord. Which lens were they taken with or was it one of your scopes?

Hi Ron,
These are with the 300/F4 at fairly short distance, 15 meters or something like that. It would have been extremely difficult to achieve with the scope as the action is hard to predict, time required to focus is short and is DOF shallow. I have spent quite a few hours with the scope and have got some decent results, however none where all the parameters framing, focus, posture and action all got correctly captured.

Cheers
Tord

Hi,

Could you please clarify exactly what you changed in response to the advice? You said you changed L-FPS (10 fps) when using C-AF; but changed from what? And just what setting in what menu are you referencing? Is it C1/ L Settings? And what submenu after that?

Jim

Hi Jim,

Being used to the E-M1 Mark 1 since previous I directly when for shooting in H-FPS, which the first results indicate was a mistake.

What I did was to change from sequential H to sequential L. (Page 46 in the user manual). I also set the max FPS for L to 10/s. Menu C1/page 114. In effect you will get less.

Apart from that, tried various focus point settings. I think central 5 or 9 works best, depending on subject and background.

Release shutter prio = OFF
