Hi folks,

As a welcome relief from the general visual and aural blare of Las Vegas I visited the Shark Reef Aquarium. Difficult lighting and no tripod meant there weren't many keepers but at least the photogenic, and neurotoxic, Lion Fish came out OK.


Camera Model: OM-D E-M5
Lens: LUMIX G VARIO PZ 14-42/F3.5-5.6
Focal Length: 14mm (35mm equivalent: 28mm)
Aperture: f/3.5
Exposure Time: 0.067 s (1/15)
ISO equiv: 1600
Exposure Bias: -0.30 EV

Nothing special so far as Lion Fish photos go but at least it has alerted me to a photographic resource I hadn't used up to now, namely aquaria. Worth a visit if you have one nearby. 8)


Sony RX1R II. Olympus OM-D E-M1 + M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8, M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/2.8 + 1.4x T/C, Lumix 7-14mm f/4, Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 ASPH, M.Zuiko Digital 45mm 1:1.8

Nice shot, but I think that due to the lighting, the shot didn't turn out so good

I think it's a really great shot, limited reflections and a great amount of detail and sharpness. Great effort.

Canon 550D, Canon EFS 17-85 IS USM, Canon EF 75-300 IS USM, Canon EFS 10-22mm USM, Canon EF35mm F2.

Got some of the gear but really still no idea...:)
