Getting to grips with my new Olympus 300mm f/4.0. For the last year and a half or so I have been using the PL 100-400 for bird photography, amongst other things, and generally have been very happy with it.
On the east coast of Oleron the minor road that runs along the coast has been designated the “Route des Huîtres” and for good reason, all the way along the route are the colourful shacks and boats of the Oyster farming industry.
I was busy photographing the Oyster sheds at La Baudissier when I noticed a Barn Swallow shooting in and out of a gap in one of the sheds, presumably feeding some nestlings. Up for a challenge I thought this might be a good opportunity to once again test out the 6K functionality of the G9.
The G9 does not have built in GPS – but what it does have is the ability to link via low-energy Bluetooth (BLE) to your phone and thereby import the GPS coordinates from the phone.
A trip down to Bexhill on Sea today to give the G9 a run out.
The De La Warr Pavilion is an Art Deco grade 1 listed building buit in 1935 – it makes a fine photographic subject.
