I'm not holding these up as great photographs, because they're really not, but I thought they were interesting!

I was playing with the new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III and Olympus M.Zuiko 12-45mm f/4 Pro lens while in London last week. While waiting for my train to arrive on the Underground, I did a couple of (very hasty!) long exposures of passengers disembarking.

The first one is a 10-second handheld exposure, and the second is a 4-second handheld exposure.

Again, they're not supposed to be great images as I was just playing while waiting for my train. But I think it's amazing how good the in-body image stabilization is on the E-M1 Mark III (7 stops, by default), making it possible to do these kinds of long exposures on a whim and without a tripod.

Imagine what you could do with this if you actually put some time and thought into it!

My Pentax KP has five axis IBIS too and is very impressive also 🙂
