Great low light performance

I am in India at present and was playing around with my OM-D taking family pictures (they won't allow me to post them). At first I used the little clip-on flash for indoor shots but not satisfied, changed to natural light. Even at ISO 200 and f/8, the sensor's ability to capture the scene late in the evening was terrific. Another feature of the little camera with which I am very happy.

Re: Great low light performance

I love what the camera can do in dull light too.

This indoor shot was taken in aperture priority & everything else auto (ISO Auto max set to 6400).

And this is what the light was really like.

Let's see some photos of India from you now.

It is, but I am stuck in overcrowded, polluted and now mostly ugly Bangalore city for the duration. Nevertheless, I'll see if I can find anything interesting.

And I meant ISO 200. Even in a 'daylight' setting the camera is able to pick-up the details very well quite close to sunset and without flash. I am still on a learning curve with this camera and am experimenting with various settings.
