I´ve downloaded a Olympus Viewer 2 but it won´t open
Steve Huff and other reviewers say the GX1 high ISO surpasses that of the EP3. So I'll look forward to comparisons with the OM-D, even though I don't shoot much beyond 800. I certainly prefer the GF/GX form factor. Just something about the mini-DSLR design that I don't like.
One thing that I don´t get is that the OMD sensor is basically the G3 and the GX1s´ sensor. So how come it can have better iso and dynamic range if you´re shooting RAW? This would only make sense if you were shooting JPEGS or if the sensor was some how different.
I´ve tried RawTherapee, XnView and the Olympus software and none will open the ORF files. This is becoming increasingly weird.
unfortunately, I think you'll be unlikely to find anything which will open these ORF files - presumably people are working on it at the moment, very often Adobe are first with support, but very rarely before the camera is actually released.
Aperture still doesn't support the NEX7 files.
There may be quite a wait
Just this guy you know
Panasonic GH1/G1, Canon FTb(n)/F-1, Mamiya C330F/RB67 Pro SD, Chamonix 45N-2, Nikon F5 + Assorted Lenses
The raw samples I got were put up by a French Website, but they took them down after a while (Olympus didn't want to see samples files other than jpegs of 1600 pixels in the longest side).
The results were quite different in Raw Therapee and in Olympus viewer. Those of Raw Therapee were very dark, but supported a push in the shadows very well. It really seems that there is a progress in the sensor or the data extracted from the sensor.
I´ve actually decided to wait a bit more. The OMD sounds like a winner but I want to hear and see more before making a thousand buck investment. Plus there are rumors saying that Oly´s next camera will be a pen with the OMDs´ sensor, which would suit my shooting style way more.
I'd like to see a minor redesign on the Pen, to do away with the fiddly rotating dial around the menu button... replace it with a top dial or something. The design needs to mature with each release.
I'm not going to rush into anything Jono, will drop down to Focus I think - have a play first.
Well, I'd rather be going to China
How's your mandarin?
