I work with many photographers and few actually get the delivery piece right. So I am going to try to show you how I go about it, in the hopes that it will put you on the right track.
Olympus’ Pro Capture mode allows you to take pictures before you – take pictures. Pro Capture takes advantage of the camera’s electronic shutter. Once you half-press the shutter, the camera starts filling a buffer. When you finally press the shutter, a pre-determined number of images that occur BEFORE and AFTER the actual shutter press are recorded.
I am bombarded lately by pixel peepers quoting DxoMark numbers on this or that product. They tell me (proudly) that THIER lens scores better than mine or their pal’s or whatever.
The Uniqball UBH 45XC Ball Head with X-Cross Clamp is perhaps the most unusual ball head I have ever used. And I’ve used pretty much all of them.
I used to primarily rely on Canon or Nikon DSLRs for bird and wildlife photography but my health and my age have made both impractical. Thankfully, Micro Four Third (M43) cameras and lenses have improved over the last five years to the point where they have significantly closed the gap with many DSLRs. I now use M43 gear from Olympus as my only camera system.
What Photo Accessory Have I Owned The Longest? It may surprise you to find out that it is the Walkstool Comfort 65 XX-Large Folding Stool.
The Walkstool is the longest serving photo accessory I own. For decades, I have relied on the very same Walkstool – it stands the test of time. I own very few items that truly last, but this is one well-built product. You may benefit from adding one to your photo kit.
I generally recommend that photographers shoot in RAW mode which means that you can easily set your white balance in post as if you had done it in the field. But that does mean that you spend (waste) time in post when you could have easily done the right thing in camera.
