Default E-3 Live View and Textures

I got to get out and put to use E-3 features that I haven't used before (other than playing around with them when I first bought the camera a year ago. My 3D animator friend was going to shoot a bunch of 360 panos in an old abandoned factory, and he asked if I wanted to trail along - and so I did.

I knew that I would have a plethora of textures, shadows, and other interesting content to shoot while attempting to stay out of view. I seldom use a tripod in my normal shooting, but decided that I would shoot everything at 100ISO and let the shutter speeds fall where they may - - - that would require a tripod. Something that I have never really benefited from if the swivel LCD screen and Live View - and so I decided to do all the shots with Live View and Manual Focus using the 10X magnifier. It was awesome for shots like this where time can be taken. The Swivel screen allowed me to aim my camera at the ceiling and any conceivable angle - and compose and focus with ease. Another Feature of the E-3 that I have never really used was the Anti Shock feature, essentially popping up the mirror like a Mirror Lock in the old days and waiting a second or two before firing to stabilize the camera. Image Stabilization was Turned OFF being I was on a tripod.

All shots were taken with my E-3 and 12-60 (24-120) lens, in either Vivid mode or Black and White mode at 100 ISO, saved as SuperFine JPEG files.

1 ) 43mm : f6.3 @ 1/5'th

2 ) this is an HDR where the dark section is burried deep in the shadows of a metal beam

3 ) 27mm : f5.6 @ 1/250'th
