Irvine Spectrum Ferris Wheel

After watching Iron Man 3 on Sunday, I decided to stop by Red Robin’s for a nice fat Royal Red Burger for dinner at the Irvine Spectrum.

I had my camera with me, just in case, and as I walked into the mall I got this view:


It was a slightly long exposure so I got that nice effect of blurred people. I tried to get more shots like that with the people better framed, but there aren’t that many people at the Spectrum past 9PM.

I was using my Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 lens (this lens stays on my camera 90% of the time) and I think I had it stopped down slightly for slightly more DOF and sharpness. The settings gave me around a 1/2 second exposures/shutter speeds, but that was OK because the Olympus OM-D has fantastic image stabilization. Most of the shots came out decent, but are slightly blurry at 100% magnification. They shouldn’t be too bad for web viewing here.



I walked around the Ferris Wheel and tried multiple angles and views. Because I was using a 25mm micro-four-thirds lens (50mm effective focal length), I couldn’t get full view shot of the Ferris Wheel, but I actually like these tight shots of it too.



Please let me know what you think!

    • Olympus OM-D E-M5, that machine’s IBIS can give you up to 5 stops I think. It’s also a 50mm equivalent lens because of m43’s crop factor. I’d still have your 5dMK over the OM-D any day though haha
