Noisy images

Hi all, I have recently switched over from my trusty E-510 to the E-M5. I decided to go out boxing day to a location that I like to shoot when itís foggy, the images looked pretty good on the screen but when I uploaded them and zoomed in the noise was really bad. Am I missing something? How should I have my settings for optimum output?

I was using the Olympus Zuiko 40-150mm lens, would this have contributed?

I will go and try again with the standard pancake lens that came with it.

Itís very likely that I have something set on low quality but I have read through the PDF and I am sure Iíve set everything for the best quality

Any settings, tips or input much appreciated

Cheers

Re: Noisy images

Can you post some examples? What ISO were you using?

Re: Noisy images

Hi Iíve just compared the images same kind of setting ( foggy) between the two cameras in similar settings. The Ď510 ISO was 400 which looked okay and the EM5 was ISO1000! I think we may have discovered the problem? Though the images were a bit dark still? All the excitement of a new camera I think!

You might have got away with iso800 but yes I think you found your problem iso400 should have looked much better and without any blown highlights too!

High ISO and underexposure will lead to very poor noise performance it is one of the worst combinations.
