Since I now have the fabled E-M5, I am excited to see that wide dynamic range in the real world pictures :)
I decided to test out my new camera at our Wellington City Library (WCL).
Of all places, why WCL?
I was in the library at 10.45am and took a few shots of the shelves of books with my Panasonic 7-14 on the OM-D.
I hardly taken less than 8 shots when out of no where a guy in uniform started questioning me WHY I am taking pictures.
I told him I am testing my new camera, he was not impressed and want me to show him what I took and I did. He then DEMAND that I ERASE ALL THE PICTURES!
I argued that the pictures are for my blog, NOT for commercial purposes; that the library is a PUBLIC PLACE, that there were NO SIGNS saying NO PHOTOGRAPHY ALLOWED; that yada yada yada...
The Man In Black is not smiling, so just to pacify him I hit the ERASE ALL button and presto, all the images on my card are gone. He wanted me to show him that there are no image left which I did, the OM-D say "No Image On Card".
"But what about THIS ONE?" Pointing at the screen, our M.I.B. asked! I try very hard to explain that is LIVE, what the lens is seeing! DUH!!

By then I have LOST INTEREST and told them I am leaving ;)

My friend asked me did the OM-D did a good job INSIDE the library, well; see for yourself, below is a 100% crop of the erased photo.
Not bad for a 100% crop taken at a rather slow 1/10 second!
There will be more test to come!
