Night Shots in Jubei

Photos by MJ Klein

One of the things that I really love about Taiwan is the fact that the country is literally an assault on one’s senses.  There are so many sights, sounds and smells that just walking down the street can be exciting.  There is always so much going on.  I joke with some other Taiwan photographers that all one has to do is point the camera in the general direction of something and the result will be a great photograph.

I bought a new lens recently.  I’ve been quietly testing it for the last week or so, including the shots of typhoon Krosa.  I’ll be doing a review in the next few weeks but in the meantime I thought I would spill some of the beans about this lens.  One reason that I bought it, is because the lens has optical stabilization which dramatically improves the sharpness of photographs in low light or slow shutter speeds: 

This system uses two sensors inside the lens to detect vertical and horizontal movement of the camera by moving an optical image stabilizing lens group, to effectively compensate for camera shake. It also automatically detects panning movement of the camera and compensate for camera shake when shooting moving subjects such as motor sports.

Enough of that!  Let’s get to the photographs!  I promise I won’t bore you with a lot of comments!


We ate at this restaurant.  Look for a story on Bushman’s Food Blog soon!


This last shot was taken at 1/8 of a second, in the car at a stoplight.  This would have been virtually impossible without the OS system.
