IBTABA Nº 46 — Airfix Kits
ah! a new toy to try out. the Olympus EP-1 was released, and like all Mirrorless cameras since, it is great to put an adapter, and try out some lenses. at the time, the sensor was not great in low-light, but for some reason I wanted to try it— the results were very noisy, with…
