Some photos taken with the EX1 in Barcelona
Still a great camera after all.

I also have this filter adapter. Mostly use it to attach a close-up filter.

For those of you in the UK, be aware that Park Cameras have the EX1 for £219 currently which is a very tempting price. (Samsung EX1 Black - Only £219.00 - Park Cameras Online)
I have a LX5 but still appreciate some of the images here.

Great pics stratocaster! Funny that we should post EX1-shot Barcelona photos right after each other

Great images Stratokaster ! Low lights no problem for that schneider lens.

I went to the Beaulieu Spring Autojumble on Saturday and brought the EX1. Lets get the moaning out of the way first.
The much vaunted AMOLED screen is overated. Even in moderate sunlight you can't see a thing - well you can just about compose your image
but because of the camera's poor ergonomics you can't review the previous shots until you find somewhere dark enough to see them.
A right handed shooter will inevitably push something they didn't intend to with their thumb. I wondered why the last 6 shots were so wildly over exposed
until I realised I was shooting close to ISO 3000 in bright daylight.
The screens articulation gets top marks, and clarity in normal shooting is very good but in sunny conditions it's no better than the screen on my old cheap throwaway Kodak 310.
And it scratches very easily. Rant over
The lens on this camera is amazing .
Rule of thumb is usually use a flash for anything under 1/60th sec.
I decided to shoot hand held jpegs at ISO 80 without the dual stabilization.
Auburn Speedster. F1.8 @ 1/20th sec
1920 aero engined Sunbeam land speed record holder . F2.5 @ 1/30th sec
Dashboard F1.8 @ 1/20th sec.
McClaren F2.5 @ 1/45th sec
Bentley Blower. F2.5 @ 1/30th sec
1950 BRM F2.0 @ 1/20th sec
Now I realize I can't quite hold this dashboard shot at 1/ 10th sec
1967 Lotus 49 F2.3 @ 1/30th sec
Obviously 400 ISO ( I think the dual stabilization automatically selects this ) would have meant faster shutter speeds with less camera shake but I think 80 ISO just about handles it most of the time.

I like that Lotus! My dad often told me stories of seeing it win Zandvoort in the hands of his hero, Jim Clark.
IIRC, dual IS automatically selects ISO800 - and I never, ever use it. If I feel the need for higher ISO I'll just select it myself...
The screen is quite reflective indeed, but the tiltability means you can often position it out of the way of the worst glare, or cup your hand over it without having to contort yourself, so in my experience it's still better than most, even in bright light... and I'm pleased to say that I stopped the random button pushes after about half a year
I've got handholding it with slow shutter speeds pretty much figured out now, at the moment I'm trying to learn how to use fill flash properly. One step at a time...

And more and more i leave my DSLR @ home, and let the EX1 do the job...
This morning i was only use it in manual mode, and the oled is a great help.

love the way you captured the light's play high up in the trees, great shot!

I always liked the rough "Ricoh look" in black and white photos. So I tried to get that look with my EX1... What do you think?
