Some cool vibration sensor images:
Octopus, dramatic light, suckers and tentacles, the eye looking us over… P4181450

You want alien life? Got it right here. Bright red. Radial symmetry. Last common ancestor with us probably before the Cambrian… Smart, can reason and observe.
This and most of these aquarium photos was shot with my OM-1’s 50mm F/1.2, mounted in the EP-2. A very fast lens. Manual focus and aperture operation, automatic exposure via iso and ‘shutter’ speed by the camera body. The EP-2 manual says it has image stabilization / vibration reduction features in the body, but whether this means they move the sensor on a pixel scale to track the image or mathematically combine multiple, shorter captures that they translate up-down/left-right before overlaying, I don’t know. VERY high technology in a modern camera.
I shoot a LOT of images when I have the chance, some are pretty bad, some are delightfully good. It makes me happy.
