Olympus Live Composite - mitä, miksi ja miten?

Live Composite on Olympus kameroiden erittäin käyttökelpoinen pitkien valotusten feature. Se on kätevä tapa kuvata pitkällä valotuksella ilman, että kuva ylivalottuu kovinkaan helposti. Live Comp ottaa peräkkäin useita valotuksia ja yhdistää kuvat yhdeksi kuvaksi kamerassa. Kuvaan tulee ainoastaan lisää, jos kuva-alalle tulee vaaleampia alueita kuin siinä siihen mennessä on ollut. Valotuksen voi lopettaa, kun kuva näyttää omasta mielestä hyvältä. Parasta juuri onkin, että kameran näytöltä voi seurata miten kuva kehittyy.

Saadaksesi Live Compin päälle laita kameran valotus M-asentoon. Valitse valotusajoista Live Comp. Valotusajan pituuden saat valittua Menusta. Kun sinulla on Live Comp. päällä, paina menu-nappia. Kamera osaa mennä suoraan oikeaan valikkoon josta saat valittua yhden valotuksen pituuden. Valotuksen pituus luonnollisesti riippuu vallitsevan valon määrästä. Ohessa olevien kuvien valotusajoista saat jonkinlaisen haarukan valotusajoista, aukoista ja ISO-herkkyyksistä.

Kuten kuvien tiedoista näkee ei kovin pitkiä valotusiakoja tarvitse. Kauanko kameran antaa ottaa LiveCompilla kuvaa on sitten jokaisen oman maun mukaan päätettävä itse.

LiveCompin käyttö vaatii käytännössä jalustan käyttöä.

Tutorial - Using Olympus Episode 4: High Res. Image.

 

High Res Image feature was introduced with OM-D EM-5 MkII in February 2015.

The feature is only in three Olympus cameras, E-M1 MkII, E-M5 MkII and Pen-F. The only diffence is that in EM-5 MkII high res image has maximum of 54Mipx while the other two has maximum of 80Mpix. E-M1 MkII and Pen-F have 20Mpix sensor and the E-M5 MkII has 16Mpix sensor. That makes the difference.

In the video my example was from OM-D EM-1 MkII. The control settings for High Res. Image are can be found, as shown in the video, in the Shooting menu 2 in all three cameras.  

In E-M1 MkII to turn the High res. feature option on, go to:
