DJI Phantom Vision 2 Plus First Flight

After a charge of the batteries and a quick read of the manual it was time for the first flight. Sunny with zero wind were perfect conditions and all went smoothly.

Some of the photos are a bit soft in the left top corner straight out of the camera. Also after taking a photo in “RAW” format there is a considerable delay on the screen of the smartphone.

Overall very happy so far and just need more stick time and practice to get better at flying.

Olympus 15mm Body Cap Lens

This new lens arrived today, first impression, it looks like a cap to protect the camera when no lens is connected. First photo was of sunset today using the “Pinhole” Art effect on the OMD E-5. Settings – JPEG S.O.O.C.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe lens came as a free gift when I bought the OMD camera, it also came with a cloth that wraps around the camera and a leather strap. To claim I emailed my receipt to Olympus and a few weeks later it arrived.

Love it when you get a nice surprise after buying a new camera. Looking forward to having a play with the new lens/body cap over the coming weeks.

 

Inspired by Andy Biggs and “Photograph” Magazine

I’ve just been reading thru the 2nd edition of  “Photograph“, a quarterly magazine which can be downloaded as a pdf from Craft & Vision.

Africa 13

The portfolio of Andy Biggs got me inspired to to look thru some old photos from a trip to Africa in 2006.

Andy has edited his wildlife photos to all be black and white, I had never thought to process my Africa photos in this way, below is the result of my re-process of a few Kenya, Tanzania and Ugandan photos from a safari I did in 2006.
