That 2pm Breakfast

The past week has been extra crazy for me, so I was physically drained more than usual. I just could not wake up earlier this morning (Saturday) for shutter therapy, so I skipped it altogether and chose to sleep in and wake up much, much later. It felt great to be able to sleep more and that extra sleep was all I needed to recover. 

I went to the Quar/tet at TTDI in the afternoon to meet some friends, and it was my first time there. The place was reputed to serve good coffee (coffee culture is booming up in KL now, as if we never had coffee before). Hence I ordered myself breakfast (at about 2pm) and a cafe latte. Like everyone else in these modern days, before eating, I did the routine of shooting the photographs of my coffee and plate of breakfast. 

E-M1, 45mm F1.8, shot at ISO 200, F3.5, 1/6sec handheld. 

Shot with E-M5 and 25mm F1.8, at ISO400, 1/3sec, F8 handheld



I always tried to stay at lowest ISO possible, but at the same time I keep an eye out for the minimum shutter speed. I started with conservative ISO of 200 and 400, and I noticed the shutter speed was on dangerously slow side, at about 1/2 to 1/10sec (depending on how you meter the subject) There were two options crossing my mind: Option 1) boost up the ISO to achieve faster shutter speed, ideally at 1/45sec or faster if I use 45mm lens, or 1/25 sec or faster if I use the 25mm F1.8 lens, or Option 2) trust in the 5-Axis Image Stabilization system. 

I chose the latter. You know what? Shooting the 45mm lens at 1/6sec shutter speed, and the 25mm lens at 1/3sec shutter speed, and I got away with perfectly sharp images. Simply stunning!

Once you have experienced the amazing capabilities of the Olympus 5-Axis Image Stabilization, it is almost impossible to live without it.

  1. Robin, couldn't agree more re: the Oly 5-axis stabilizer - it's one Oly feature I've gotten so used to that I almost can't shoot without it. Seems that I have seen that particular version of breakfast many times in my Asia travels - Yum! Sorry, a bit off topic, but would you consider doing some flash comparisons for the EM5 and EM1. I, for one, would like to see your perspective re: the FL600R, particularly used as an on camera bounce flash, and in "wireless" mode - just a thought. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to visiting KL one of these days!

  12. I am ROSE SMITH from CANADA a single parent, before my husband died
    he left us with so much DEBT that we could not cope with life, I was
    totally confused on what to do. When I was going through the internet
    I came across a POST by MARCUS CAFE about how Mrs JULIA NAVARO help
    him to get a loan so I applied for the loan from JULIA NAVARO through
    her mail (navaroloancompany@yahoo.com) of $200,000 with a duration of
    10 years.When I was applying for the loan I made a vow to GOD that if
    I get the loan I will let the world know what she did for me, to my
    greatest surprise my loan was granted with an interest of 2%. I was
    able to settle my debt and start up a new life and business with a
    settled family. So if you want any type of loan in any part of the
    world for as low as 2% please contact JULIA NAVARO on her mail
    navaroloancompany@yahoo.com or her phone number +16618356153.
    I just fulfilled my vow.
