Château de Crémat (Olympus E-510 IS Test)

Testing my new Olympus E-510 Built-in Image Stablization system.

This picture was taken without a tripod with my 50-200mm plus a 1,4x teleconverter = 283mm. According to Google Earth, I was at 1200 m (0,75 Miles) from the subject.

Exposure time 1/200 s

Since I'm not a Yogi this image should be blured by my movements.

As you can see, it's not!

It's just AMAZING!


Note: Château Crémat produces one of the most famous wine from Bellet Hills.

"Nice does actually have its own local wines that you’d be hard pushed to find elsewhere: Bellet. This pretty little region lies behind the city to the northwest (the other side of the motorway) on dramatic slopes in the foothills of the Alps, and is easily explored in a morning trip. The rosés (and reds) often feature the obscure grape varieties La Folle Noire and Le Braquet, and must surely be the ultimate accompaniment to salade niçoise!"
