View Full Version : ART settings anyone?

9th June 2017, 06:04 PM
As a fairly recent EM1 Mark 2 convert (and new to Olympus), I was wondering how many of you more seasoned users like or use the `ART` settings on the camera? I really like the feature and feel that it brings a different slant to its use. Its fun too I think! I took these two recently on an organised shoot at the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway close to where I live in Gloucester.

I always shoot RAW and if I feel like playing with the ART filters, I do it in the Olympus Viewer software.

I have used them occasionally in camera so I can see what an image will look like in B/W whilst I am still there, but I would suggest using RAW+JPEG so you get a colour file to process afterwards if you decide you want something different

TBH I don't remember ever using one I had processed in camera, but as I say as a preview they have a use, and if you get something you like OOC then excellent

I like the dramatic one but it does need to be used sparingly.
