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 :confused:

Any settings, tips or input much appreciated

Cheers *chr

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

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!!!! :eek: 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.
