Kevin these are wonderful, despite your limited success.
Curious if you had camera or lens or both image stabiliser active?
I would imagine the camera can handle near vertical shots.
I've never taken any real notice with my EM5, but just point it anywhere and haven't noticed a drop in performance.
Is that where the touted 5 axis stabilisation comes into its own?
I could fully appreciate yes.

Had you thought on that?
I share your neck pain. Try surveying for a day! LOL


Thank you Richard. Yes, I probably slipped up there. I normally find the OIS better but I'm thinking that perhaps in this situation IBIS may have been better as there isn't as much movement at camera end. Lying flat on my back would likely have been more comfortable but I was frightened that I may not be able to get up again! :-)

You invited yourself to the dinner table. :p Were you offered any sushi? :lol:Great series, Kevin.

Thanks Mike. I was directly underneath and I can assure you his table manners were exemplary.............​he didn't drop a bit! :-)

American Avocet

Maybe a common bird for some POTN members but in my neck of the woods we only see a few during the fall migration. I shot this with the 1.4 ver II extender.
