Ok, took the advice from my previous post of this shot and finally had a chance to work with this shot in Topaz. Big difference, thanks!

Tony,

These are pumas located in southern Chile; specifically, in and around Torres Del Paine NP. I just spent a week here with a guide and tracker hiking and following these magnificent cats in the wild.

Excellent detail for an ISO 10000 picture shot by MFT camera. Would like to know the processing steps.

Hi Sushil,

I probably spent less than 90 seconds on processing this image. Nothing special at all Ė†just expose to the right, fill the frame as much as possible, and use your choice of NR software. In this case, I used Topaz DeNoise. I also use DxO Pure Raw. Both give excellent results as long as the original file was properly captured.

With the OM-1 ISO10,000 is not a problem.

Mitesh some great stuff you got! I know a few leaders that go down there... and just as you were there too...Humm. Pretty windy for you?

Watch Topaz as it will make weird things happen, like the whiskers below the lower lip.

Images I would be proud to have! Such a great lens great to hike around with and deliver such a great MM range?

Thanks, Patrick. There were just three of us together and we didn't go with a group. We hired our own guide and the guide hired a tracker to help cover more ground. It was both windy and cold, but the hiking keeps you warm and you find yourself shedding layers to regulate your body heat.

This was THE perfect lens for this trip. I also had a second body with a 12-100 on it and that was a perfect complement.

Hi @mitesh,

Is it possible to share how much crop was applied for this image. I know with the 20mp sensor we have to try to fill the frame to get details. Will be embarking on a safari trip (private reserve) in a week, still thinking if I should leave the Sony A1 + 200-600mm behind and just go with the OM-1 with the 150-400mm with MC-14/MC-20.

Thanks,
Simon

I can't speak for Mitesh, but I find I'm almost always using my A1 in crop mode with the 200-600mm zoom, which yields a 20MP image just like the OM-1.

I think that depends on the subject. With bird feathers, I can see a noticeable drop in fine detail resolution if I go over ISO 3200, processing in DxO PureRAW2. The higher ISO images are still useable, but I try to keep it at ISO 1600 or below whenever possible.

Hi Simon,

The tight portrait is about 75-80% of the original frame. Due to the proximity of the subject, cropping slightly didnít affect the detail level. As for your safari trip, Iíd likely choose the OM combo. The only reasons I would choose the Sony combo over the OM combo are:

1. You customize multiple buttons for different shooting/exposure presets and that is very important to you.
2. You can fill the frame and want/need high MP count for your method of display.
3. You need/want more reliable C-AF tracking.
4. You need/want files with better DR/processing latitude.

Other than those reasons, I canít think of any other reason to take Sony over OM. These advantages donít exist in every situation and are dependent upon many factors, including proper image capture. The OM combo offers advantages that are more meaningful to me. Just my opinions, of course, and others may not agree.

Another great shot. I looked up a few puma tours on Google and it looks like a really memorable experience.

Thank you so much for the detailed reply.

After using the Om-1 with the 150-400mm setup for 2 months, I do miss the Sony's customisation abilities. But the 150-400mm lens is really quite unbelievable for a zoom lens. It's sharp enough wide open, and the f4.5 (or f5.6 with TC on), is really an advantage. For the Sony 200-600mm, to get great results, usually I have to stop it down slightly to f7.1or f8.

Now I wish I have 2 OM-1, one with the 12-100mm f4 or the 40-150mm f2.8, and the other with the 150-400mm. My other Olympus body is a very old EM10ii (I use it mainly for star trails for lightning, using the live composite function).
