    Kind regards.
    As of this afterroon UK time, C1 still has no profiles for the EM-1. The profiles for the EM-5 were fairly quick after launch.

    C1's Fuji X1Pro profiles were also very late but whereas most of the others including Adobe did not get their first releases right at all, C1 always seem to nail it first time when they do release a profile for a new camera.

    I hope that it is soon now though!!

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    I had the camera on a tripod this evening to do our annual holiday self-portrait. This is always a tricky thing as the lights tend to saturate, so I run -EV compensation and soft ambient lighting to bring it up. Exposures with the ZD 11-22 @ 11mm were in the ISO 400 @ f/8 @ 4-5 seconds range.

    After four blurry shots, using both SAF and MF focusing, I was beginning to wonder what had gone wrong with the camera.
    Then it dawned on me ... I turned off IS. The next two captures were razor sharp.

    So ... they mean it when they recommend turning off IS for tripod use. It might not affect you in some other lens/exposure time range as much, but it was clearly the problem here.

    Happy Holidays!

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    Wandering through some photos made with the ZD 35 Macro, I came across some from the lighting at Pigeon Point Lighthouse made in 2010 using the Olympus E-5. What a wonderful bargain lens this is! Works just as nicely on the E-M1 as well.


    Olympus E-5 + ZD 35mm f/3.5 Macro
    ISO 200 @ f/5.6 @ 30 seconds

    thanks for looking, comments always appreciated.

    enjoy!

    C1 now supports the E-M1

    As of this evening (in Europe), Capture One 7.1.6 is available for download. It supports the E-M1, Sony alpha 7 and 7r and has "preliminary" support for the G7. I'll post a comparison of in camera jpg with COne developed files in a few minutes.

    in camera JPG vs developing the .ORF file

    In camera JPegs are OK if the exposure is right on and the range doesn't exceed 8 stops but I seem to violate one or both of these limits pretty often. Now that I can develop the .orf files from my E-M1 with a tool that I sort of understand, let's see what I gain on a long-scale outdoor scene:

    Before (JPEG pretty straight, just pulled the highlights back a bit to keep some tone in the sky):



    and after (was able to be gentler with the sky, and get more life in the seascape; the extra color in the dunes just appeared like magic):



    Now to see which already posted images need a little strengthening...

    scott

    PS: no sharpening applied to either image. E-M1 with 11-22 Zuiko at 22 mm.

    Lovely picture, Godfrey. In the early days of M-4/3 I would sometimes go for walks with just the 35 macro (on adapter) and the 17mm f/2.8. The 35 is fantastically sharp wide open. The 17 f/2.8 lens, not so much. I tended to treat them both like f/4 lenses. They made a great pair for a "walkabout" (albeit a bit slow).

    I use the 45mm macro more often, now, but sometimes I miss the 35's FOV and perspective. I still use it (on my G1) when I volunteer to photograph artifacts for the local museum.
    Best regards,
    John.

    I can't tell you how much I dislike LR.

    These are processed in Aperture - and Silver EFEX pro

    First shot is with the 60 macro, second and third with the 75 f1.8 (what a lens!).

    Your reaction to LR is quite similar to my reaction to Aperture. ;-)
    Both work, both do mostly very similar things overall. Each has its processing strengths and weaknesses, and different detail target uses. But the workflow and UI are radically different between them. Aperture gives me a headache, Lightroom works the way I want.

    No matter, the photographs are the important part. Lovely stuff.

    I'm tempted to buy that 75mm AND the SHG ZD 150mm f/2. Since that will cost me more than I feel like spending at one time, I'll just let those desires percolate for a while. ;-)

    Interesting isn't it, and it's nothing to do with familiarity, over the last 2 years I've used LR as much as Aperture (mainly because Apple are so chronically slow to support Leica products).

    I'm also tempted by the 150 f2 - but it's an expensive piece of kit! I'm busy selling an elmarit APO 180 f2.8 - because I really don't use it that much, and it's too valuable to justify it's existence as an occasional lens . . . . actually, you're giving me dangerous ideas . . . ..

    The 75 f1.8 is unmissable though - just buy it Godfrey - you know it makes sense!

    I've wanted the 150/2 since I first got into FourThirds. My reluctance is not just the price tag, it's the amount I'd actually use such a long lens. The 50-200 is superb, and I don't use it terribly much either, although last Saturday's session pointed out to me that the long-end focal lengths have their unique charm.


    Olympus E-M1 + ZD 50-200mm + EC-14
    ISO 200 @ f/5.6 @ 1/2500 @ 258mm

    A 150mm f/2 would net me 1.5-2 stops faster for more DoF control, and a 210mm f/2.8 with the EC-14 is a luscious idea. But beyond that, the 150/2 has such absolutely beautiful image rendering ... sigh.

    Oh I know that. It does, it's likely the next lens I acquire, depending on when the Panasonic-Leica Summilux-DG 15mm f/1.8 ASPH is released. 75mm I do use, only thing keeping me from plunking down the cash is that i have three other lenses in the focal length range (Summicron-R 90mm, Nikkor-H 85mm, M-Rokkor 90mm) all of which do a beautiful job.

    So many nice lenses to enjoy with these cameras!

    Well, I have several equivalent lenses too (including the 75 summicron), but the Zuiko has it's own charms (and autofocus!)

    Thanks Jono! I'm sure I will be. I did like the E-M5 very much except for the wonky C-AF. This has been addressed in the E-M1 along with the amputation of the AA filter.

    The 17mm f/1.8 is every bit as good as everyone says it is. I am pleasantly surprised with the 40-150mm's performance - I bought it during the Black Friday sale for chips. Ultimately, I'd like to get the 40-150 f/2.8 for ballet work and the Panny 100-300mm for sailing. I may stick with primes for walkabout.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    Today I'm taking my walk on the manual side. Fitted Nokton 40/1.4, set operation to manual exposure, set CW averaging, set ISO 400, set peaking and magnification on the front buttons. Turned off the LCD. Maybe stick the Color Skopar 21/4 in the bag too. :-)

    Fun...

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    I have to agree Godfrey. I mounted an OM Zuiko 50mm f/1.4 and found it very very easy to focus even wide open. I will be shooting with it exclusively for the next couple of days.

    It can be dreamy/flare-prone but settles down at f/2. I happen to like its dreamy quality as a portrait lens.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1


    Olympus E-M1 + 14mm f/2.5 + DMW-GWC1 0.79x wide converter
    ISO 800 @ f/4 @ 1/5 second

    Exercising the 14mm plus DMW-GWC1 combination a bit. A tiny bit of motion blur intruded at 1:1 pixel examination, likely a combination of the long exposure time and the fact that the lens tells the body it's a 14mm, not 10.5mm. But it's small enough that I'm happy. ;-)

    Thanks for looking. Comments always appreciated.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    Mostly exhausted and getting ready for a nap as I was up and out this morning at 6am to go shooting with a friend at Stanford University campus. Wandered the quad with the E-M1, 14+wide converter, 25 and 45 mm lenses.

    Just skimmed through the photos ... aside from my casual lack of technique mucking a few of them up, I'm simply blown away by how well this camera and lenses works. Truly stunning stuff.

    Photos later, I need some sleep. :-)

    The fast and the ...
    Visiting Dresden and its beautiful historic architecture we were surprised by a fast and furious "Santa Sack Race".
    This guy was blazing fast. His technique, short and flat jumps gave him the winning speed, outperforming
    all his opponents. And me, with EM1 and the wrong lens attached ( 12 mm ) always aside him with Dresdener
    Stollen in my stomach.

    TIP: lever control ...

    Don't know whether anyone else has noticed this, but I thought I'd get it out there for the E-M1 users...

    The lever control has five modes of operation. Modes 1-4 are pretty self explanatory, but mode 5's documentation is a bit sparse:

    Olympus E-M1 Instruction Manual, page 101:

    Mode 5: "The AF modes assigned to the lever positions apply. When the lever position is set to 2, the default setting is MF."
    Try as I might, I couldn't find in the manual where they documented how to assign AF modes to the lever positions. But someone on DPR came up with the solution:

    To set which modes you want the lever to toggle between,
    - set the lever to mode 5
    - exit the menus
    - set the lever to position 1
    - use the Super Control Panel to set the focusing mode
    - switch the lever to position 2
    - use the SCP to set the focusing mode

    You now have a mechanical switch that can flip the focusing mode between any two modes you might want to use back-to-back. Very handy!

    Hope all'y'all are having a great holiday!

    Woke up and saw deep fog this morning, fitted the grip and the 11-22, and walked about the neighborhood for an hour or so. Arrived back just as the sun burned through.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    Hey all

    My first post of 2014, first image post on get-dpi ever!



    Rented an E-M1 for a week, grabbed this by tapping the screen to focus and shoot! Never had a camera that could do that before, and I couldn't have put myself in a position to grab this pick!

    Using the Lumix 20mm f/1.7.

    Lovely camera, I can see what all the fuss in about...

    Jono, as I said, the capture was a confluence of the camera's feature set (I literally thought "I wonder if I can get close to her by the window and get something with the screen" and then touched the spot where her eye was on the screen) and that moment.

    The unexpected part was the way the diagonal line of the open window made the composition more interesting. Certainly the way the E-M1 rolls the highlights was an added plus.

    Fiona's indeed a beauty, and a rescue, so, as the saying goes, I don't know whether we rescued her or she rescued us.

    Okay ... a black M.Zuiko 75mm f/1.8 just arrived. I'll have time to shoot with it on Saturday.

    I blame Jono. Thanks! ;-)

    Another failed attempt

    at making a calm formal portrait of the in-laws, without any other family members butting in, after shabbat dinner at Savta's (grandma's)...



    but they liked it. (11-22 Zuiko at 22 mm)
    Also from this afternoon:



    with the 11-22 at 11, heavy backlight. The Auto ISO drove me to ISO 100, which I didn't know that it could do.
