I need help! I'm not a new photographer, I've shot sports and weddings with high end equipment, I've shot creative photography for years using mostly canon dslr's (just to let you know I'm not crazy.....well at least not really
One of three things are going on here
1.My expectations are too high
2.I don't get the Olympus setting and am doing something wrong
3.My camera is broke
I don't understand but every photo I take looks noisy to me! Even at ISO 200! This seems crazy to me with one of the main reasons I wanted this camera was because everyone was saying it's noise levels were so good. I compared shots last night with my Canon 20d photo's and there was NO comparison. The Canon shots are smooth and detailed and the E-P1 shots are very grainy, I did shoot alot at higher ISO's yesterday 400-1600 and all of them looked noisy to me. Only a few in perfect light at ISO 200 looked acceptable to my eye. I must be doing something wrong! I have Noise reduction ON, Noise filter OFF, JPEG Large Superfine. Gradiation NORMAL. Using the natural color setting. IS1 for image stabilization. I can't figure out anything else, also I'm using the 14-42 kit lens. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
