About this photo

This photo was taken by on 2017:01:17 22:47:44.

The camera used by the author of this photo was PEN-F by OLYMPUS CORPORATION, with a shutter speed of 1/60, a focal distance of 17/1 and an IOS of Array.

Image quaility

A shutter speed of 1/60 means the sensor was exposed for 0.016666666666667 seconds. This is a low enough value to guaranty that the image is probably sharp, even if captured without a tripod or if it has moving objects in it.

An ISO of Array means the lightning conditions this photo was taken in were probably poor. This might be a night or interior photo taken without a tripod and therefore it might have quite a lot of "noise", especially if zoomed in to 100%.
