    Hi Tim,

    Is your finding also true for ISO 200 images? Thanks.
    With best regards, K-H.

    Not sure to understand : Olympus Viewer is one of the rare proprietary converter to produce conversion matching the incamera jpegs. At least that is my experience with the E-P3 and E-M5. To the point that when people don't like the results of the incamera jpegs I tell them to open OW, play with the settings untill they get something they like and report these settings in their camera.

    May be you mean that you aren't able to reproduce incamera jpegs with LR ? that has been my experience, LR IMO doens't do a very good job with Olympus colors. It produce great results on my Canon bodies, where it can mimick the Canon picture styles, but I have never liked the Adobe standard colors (the only profile offered for MFT bodies). For the E-M5 in particular the results are often way to yellow and the skies to cyan for my taste.

    Olympus Viewer on the other hand, while it is able to reproduce the incamera results as long as you are using the same settings than on your camera (the menus mimick the body settings) isn't very flexible when it comes to fine tone adjustments or recovering highlights/shadoes etc.

    That said, I don't see the point of shooting raws if you convert them in Olympus Viewer : you will just reproduce what is already done in the jpegs. You can always shoot jpegs+raws, just in case something went wrong and you need more tweaking in another converter.

    DPreview compared DXO, C1 and LR/ACR a while ago and came to the conclusion that depending on the brand, some converters were doing a better job than others. I remember that for Olympus Jpegs LR came last (btw, they were using the standard settings in all tests).

    Annna

    I was trying out the bundled flash this evening and shooting at ISO3200.

    The first is developed in LR with my own currently preferred approach for the EM-1 at higher ISO. I process so that it looks 'right' to me at 50% zoom so as to emulate print resolution.

    The second of these is developed in Oly viewer from RAW at defaults then exported as 16 bit TIFF.

    Both are then cropped and exported as 92% quality, 100% size crops from LR to Zenfolio. But they look the same as they do here in LR before that export, and indeed when one is in LR and one in Viewer in two side by side windows.

    I think that though mine certainly needs refining, and though I clearly prefer to see more grain and more detail and avoid an overly NR look, the Viewer version is just horrid! Had I shot RAW+JPEG I could have assessed how close the Viewer version is to the in-camera JPEG but I would have assumed that by default they would be very similar if not the same...

    What do people think?






    Karl-Heinz, I have yet to do a comparison at ISO 200 but I will get to it. I suspect that at lower ISO the in-camera JPEG will be harder to match or beat. I also suspect that the Oly colours will as Annna points out be quite hard to get at in LR....

    Thanks Tim,

    I am looking at your two images with an iPad3.
    The first image has a lot of noise but is otherwise looking good IMHO.
    The second image looks pretty horrible to me with lots of artifacts.

    LR5 or CS6 and Nik would be my preferred processing for this image.
    Lately I have been relying only on Nik for noise reduction and sharpening.
    I have not tried C1 yet on my raw images from the E-M1.
    With best regards, K-H.

    As has been said, Olympus Viewer 3 should give you pretty much the exact same thing that comes out of the camera as JPEG when you input an .ORF file and export it to TIFF using the "As Shot" settings (the default).

    I took one of my JPEG+raw files from last evening and looked at it in LR 5.2 as well as Olympus Viewer 3. I wasn't trying to match the out of camera JPEG at all, just looking to see what LR and Viewer 3 did. Here are the results:

    Viewer3 did a decent job of rendering with less evident smearing of detail, but the greenish-yellow cast is pretty off the mark.

    I pushed the LR rendering a bit too hard on contrast and NR, softening it a bit more than I like. There's a small magenta cast still. But overall it's pretty close to my memory of the scene.

    With the light as it is in there, any 'accurate' color is a judgement call. ;-)

    Good points. To me, the only purpose in using the relatively clumsy Olympus Viewer is to get jpeg quality out of .ORF files during the month or so that it takes for Capture One to make a release available that is calibrated for the new Olympus model. With the E-P5 I shot RAW+jpeg for a month before receiving a version of CO7 that could see them. The no-adjustment rendered files were better than my jpegs, and I found about a stop each of highlight and shadow room that could be retrieved when needed. COne seemed to be the winner for Olympus M5 files in the DPreview study. It should be along for the E-M1 soon and we'll see, with room for various opinions, if it is the best again.

    Re: OM-D E-M1 Images

    Typically I have used the EM-5 up to ISO 1600.
    Here is such an image, shot with E-M5 + APO-Extender-R 2x + APO-R 280/4 @ ISO=1600, and processed with LR5, CS6, and Nik.


    From images presented in this thread it's obvious to me that noise reduction and sharpening at higher ISO can lead to distracting artifacts.
    I have therefore shot the following sequence of OOC JPGs with the E-M1 + Vario-Elmar-R 105-280/4.2 and these settings:

    Contrast = Sharpness = Saturation=0, Noise Reduct. = Noise Filter = Off

    ISO=200



    ISO=1,600



    ISO=3,200



    ISO=6,400



    ISO=25,600



    Full size OOC JPGs are accessible here: 2013-10-01 Departing - winklers' Photos

    Well, it's apparent that increasingly higher ISO leads to increasing loss of detail and loss of colors.
    But it seems other distracting artifacts have been avoided.
    The following image was developed from the .ORF file with CS6 (ACR) and Nik.


    ISO=3,200



    My conclusion: If unavoidable I will be using the E-M1 certainly up to ISO 1,600, maybe even up to ISO 3,200.

    What do you think?

    It is better to leave noise reduction on auto : noise reduction will just substract a dark frame from pictures taken at slow shutter speeds and you can adjust when it is kicking in. Default should be a few seconds (2 or 4, I don't remember but it is adjustable).

    It will not create artifacts nor blurr details like the noise filter. Unless you are shooting stars in a night sky, or want to avoid waiting while the camera takes a second dark frame of the same duration of the main picture, there is no need to deactivate it.

    Thank you for all the test pictures; your post processing looks very good. What are you doing in each of these softwares ? Where are you doing the sharpening and noise reduction ? In CS6 or Niksoftware ?

    Hi Anna,

    Many thanks for your explanations. Much appreciated.
    So, it's similar to the dark frame substraction on my M9.
    Here is what the E-M1 user manual has to say, quote:

    "This function reduces the noise that is generated during long exposures.
    [Auto]: Noise reduction is performed at slow shutter speeds, or when the internal temperature of the camera has risen.
    [On]: Noise reduction is performed with every shot.
    [Off]: Noise reduction off.
    Noise reduction requires about twice the time needed to record the image.
    Noise reduction turns off automatically during sequential shooting.
    This function may not work effectively with some shooting conditions or subjects.
    "

    You are welcome and thanks again.
    I use sharpening and noise reduction only in Nik.
    Their U Point feature is very convenient to selectively apply sharpening and/or noise reduction only in specific local areas.

    So, I start in ACR, either in LR5 or CS6, but disable sharpening and noise reduction.
    BTW LR5 can use Nik as a plugin in CS6. That's how I use it.
    First application is noise reduction, or in E-M1 speak, noise filtering where it's needed.
    Next is creative sharpening for selected areas only.

    I had noticed that even for images shot at base ISO one can generate quite a bit of noise in post-processing by cranking up contrast or clarity. This noise shows up particularly well in smooth areas like OOF backgrounds and needs to be dealt with. Also these areas shouldn't be subjected to any kind of sharpening as that would generate noise again. One nice feature of Nik are their B&W graphical displays that indicate where in an image functions are applied to what degree. Very nice.

    I also use PS features proper like the auto curves function.
    It sometimes seems to have the effect of clarity on steroids.
    It can eliminate quite a bit of haze when shooting through extensive stretches of atmosphere. Here in New Mexico where I live the air is pretty dry and one can see for close to one hundred miles horizontally. Taking the haze out of an image feels like lifting a veil.

    Finally, after image enhancements and output sharpening are completed I switch to 8 bits and sRGB for images to be posted to the web.
    With best regards, K-H.

    Re: OM-D E-M1 Shipment Notification

    One of the things I looked at with the E-M1 was how many stops of underexposure could retrieve a usable image. I've tested this with the Leica M9 and find that I can elevate underexposure a full 5 stops with its "ISO-less" sensor, so I was curious what the capability of the E-M1 sensor was.

    Image one shows a test snap of my beloved partner about to sneeze. On the left is the out of camera JPEG, showing massive underexposure due to the bright sky behind him throwing off the meter reading:



    Image two zooms in to 1:1 on just his hand:



    I think that's pretty good blackpoint recovery from severe under-exposure. It is pulled up 4 stops from ISO 200 (effectively turning ISO 200 into ISO 3200) and the LR5.2 Basic panel and Detail panel noise reduction and sharpening settings are shown here:





    Not "as good" as the Leica M9, but for a sensor that's close to the same resolution and is only 26% the area, I'd say it's close enough for usefulness.

    (It says there's a reason I'll keep the Leica M9 too, btw ... ;-)

    Oh yes: the lens was my old standby, the Olympus ZD 35mm f/3.5 Macro. An amazing lens for under $200.

    Well, I can tell you that already without actually fitting it to my camera yet. I had the chance to experiment and handle it fitted with my lenses back in September.

    For me, for my hands, it is the piece that completes the camera and makes the ergonomics sing.

    The E-M1 without it is too short for my hand span ... fully two fingers are off the bottom of the camera and curled underneath. This makes the camera difficult to hold steadily for any period of time. It's one of the first things that bugged me about the Panasonic G1 in 2008 too ... over time I adapted to it, but it was never comfortable. The E-1 and E-5 are not like that: my hand was fully supported even without the grip fitted. Even though they're larger and heavier cameras, I can shoot with them all day because they don't tire my hands out.

    I haven't used the E-M1 too much yet as I've been waiting for the grip to get here. With it fitted, I can really start to enjoy this camera. :-)

    Re: OM-D E-M1 Shipment Notification

    Hmm, this is weird.
    Olympus shipped the E-M1 and adapter and charged exactly for that including taxes.
    Problem is in same order I had also included the battery grip HLD-7 but I never got it..
    Interestingly enough in their online information the HLD-7 is listed as shipped and delivered.
    No harm done.
    Just have to order the grip again. :-)

    Last time I spoke with the local Olympus rep, he said the 12-40 would be available in early to middle November.

    Or de-notification. I just got my second backorder notice from B&H, who originally thought they would arrive Oct 4. Amazon lists a few, some at inflated prices. I see that the "order from several brick-and-mortar stores" strategy seems to have worked for a few of us.

    Godfrey, I hope the local Olympus rep is correct. Now that I have an E-M1 it would be nice to pair them.

    I must be one of the ten people in the E-M1 audience who have no interest in the 12-40 mm lens. ;-)

    One in 50 I'd say Godfrey.
    But in the meantime (and until Apple support the ORF files) 12-60 files converted to DNG for Aperture are a good substitute.

    all the best

    Actually, now there are two of us. When I had an E-1, I used the 11-22 much more than the 14-54, or whatever was the mainstream zoom, and the 50/2.0 macro more than the zoom at its long end. Now that B&H has sent me a note confirming shipment of my E-M1, I'll have a solid old 11-22 for whenever I want to look like a professional shooter, and Olympus' modern M43 45/1.8, and 75/1.8 for faces and the like. No pictures until I meet it in CA in a few weeks, but I'll take several lenses with me.

    BTW, B&H still lists the E-M1 as back-ordered, so they must be receiving only a trickle. My order went in back in September.

    My 12-40 mm lens just arrived!

    Now I have to find out whether Ming Thein Lens review: The Olympus 12-40/2.8 M.Zuiko PRO and Tim Ashley Tim Ashley Photography | Olympus 12-40mm F2.8 Pro M.Zuiko Review: "The Hammer" were right with their very enthusiastic reviews!

    k-hawinkler, nice one, I guess you can do some continuous AF tests with this lens and tell us whether the 12-40 focus better than other m43 lens.

    Good luck with it!

    Made a few exposures with the 11-22 today. I've not been in a picture taking mood lately, other than shooting Polaroids. But I try to keep my hand in.

    yippee, my free redemption HLD-7 finally arrived today!! Fantastic build quality, and maintains the excellent weather proof sealing.

    The whole camera feels more balanced and easier to stabilize. Prolonged use of the portrait grip is very comfortable and with the replicated twin dials on the portrait grip gives access to essential controls. Additional programmable function buttons on the grip means even more direct access options to commonly accessed features.

    close, it is a penf lens, and is the 100mm f3.5.. It will do the job for the time being until I can find a good deal on a 75mm 1.8 or when the next 40-150 pro lens is released

    Two huge forest fires have left their mark. The Las Conchas Fire Las Conchas Fire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia in 2011 devastated the background and the Cerro Grande Fire Cerro Grande Fire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia in 2000 the foreground of the area shown. The area in the middle of the image was not marred by either fire and surely helps with reseeding trees.

    nice pics k-hawinkler. Good use of the 75-300!! I am seriously considering one of these tele zooms. The only thing stopping me is the f4.7 to 6.7 and the slower focus speed on the E-M1 from when I tried my friends near new 75-300mm.
