Believe it or not, I shot that one in the "IAuto" setting. I continue to be amazed by the JPEGS that come out of this camera. I tried messing around w/ the RAW data on some of those shots and gave up on quite a few since the JPEGS ended up looking better than my RAW edits. I used Corel's Aftershot Pro (formerly Bibble 5) to do the RAW edits. I'll show comparisons in another thread between the JPEGS and the RAW edits I could come up with.

Needless to say, I love this camera. I sold my entire Canon kit to fund the E-M5 purchase. Its much lighter and my shoulder and back thanks me for doing it!

Hamilton, it's nice to see you back.

MACUSER, how do you compare the Olympus OMD vs the Nex? I really like the clock shot. I'd that a homemade portable studio?

OM-D and high ISO

Anyone familiar with Olympus cameras is aware of their inferior performance at high ISO's relative to other brands. Normally I hardly ever need high ISO and I was comfortable shooting at ISO 1600 with my E-PL2 which is what I settled on when we went to the Taylor Swift concert last year.







The OM-D's high ISO performance is greatly improved, maybe due in large part to the Sony sensor. When we were on the Big Island last month, I inadvertently switched the ISO to the OM-D's highest level - 25,600! I still don't know how that happened. It was a while before I realized what was going on.

Here's a shot SOOC of a wildfire we encountered trying to get to a black sand beach.



I took a few of the pictures to try and see what I could do with them in Lightroom, and while I won't be shooting at 25,600 voluntarily again unless absolutely needed, I was pretty impressed with the results after a bit of tweaking. I have the high ISO limit set to 6400 normally. Here are a few after I played with them a bit.







Here's one I took when I switched the camera to iAuto mode because the ones I had been taking (not knowing they were at 25,600) were looking washed out. I was walking through the tide pools at Turtle Beach in Kona so I had the 12-50mm lens with me so I wasn't worried about it getting a bit wet. I didn't have a polarizer for this lens at the time (got one yesterday) so I took this with my sunglasses held in front of the lens.

Macuser, can you let me know how the OM-D does vs the Nex at high ISO. I've seen good shots at 3200 from the OM-D. I know the Nex is good for high ISO shooting.

Nex 7 + Fijian toy lens.

Harry, did you see my examples above? I don't have a Nex, but I'm very impressed with the high ISO output of the OM-D. I'll try and find some good examples of ISO 6400 shots.

Have you gone to dpreview to check out the comparisons?
