OMD E-M1 Sample Images

Straight from camera JPG's - This is NOT good quality photography just a couple of quick test shots

The first pic had wrong metering mode - 5th Pic is iso 25600 - the gallery is set up to allow download of original jpg and to display the exif

Great to see thanks for sharing

I have to ask, is that an IBM Golfball typewriter in the background ?

Re: OMD E-M1 Sample Images

Specifically for Ian but may be of interest to us all, some time back you commented on the sharpening haloes on some of my images and I have been having a look at the original .jpg files straight out the camera, as imported to LR5 with no auto processing.

Based on these it looks as if the built in lens specific sharpening profiles are over-sharpening the .jpg files for the 75-300 mk1 as the haloes can be seen on some of them with no added processing and not handling the CA removal too well either

I'm looking at some images from this morning, shot with sharpness set to -1 in camera and can't see the same haloing, even when I push the sharpness and detail slider in LR5

It would be interesting to see if others are seeing this and if it is specific to the 75-300 or applies to other Olympus lenses too?

Re: OMD E-M1 Sample Images

I got around to digging out my Tamron 500mm mirror out this morning to have a go at manual focusing (off the monopod as its poor light and my shakes are still apparent)

First off, the larger viewfinder is a dream for this (even without focus peaking set on for manual focus)

The IBIS system sounds louder with this lens on the EM-1 than it does when I use it with the EM-5 (although its silent when I use it on the standard m4/3rds lenses).

ISO 6400 is just about usable (I did say the light was bad )

this shot is one of my standard focus test structures, a junction box on a fancy aerial about 120 ft away on a neighbours house - ISO1600



this is a small headed dahlia from about 12ft away, ISO 6400

and this, also ISO6400 from about 15ft from the door of my wife's studio (her - keep out sign )

Thanks again for sharing your first impressions and shots, Brian.

Just to advise the "junction box" is, in fact, an antenna rotator assembly

Are you using the Normal picture mode and what have you set the noise filter too?

You shouldn't be seeing halos...

Re: OMD E-M1 Sample Images

Hard to tell exactly without seeing more of the antenna, Brian.
It's suggestive of a Radio Amateur VHF / UHF directive array, which rotates to the required direction, and has "gain" in the direction it's pointed, and rejects off of the back and sides of the "beam"

In another life I was active in this area, but too many other interests got in the way, and with the advent of mobile phones, internet etc. I felt the moment had passed...for me at least.

Being able to send and receive morse at 30 wpm doesn't mean much any more, but it was fun in it's day!

Re: OMD E-M1 Sample Images

Thanks Ian, the shots that are showing halos with zero post processing were shot in "Normal" with all setting at factory default

Reducing sharpness to -1 removes the halos and allows me to sharpen in LR5 with very little effect on sharpening halo for quite a significant slider movement, ie: it seems much less sensitive

I am only sure of this effect with my 75-300 as I haven't taken the time to look at other images from different lenses that closely.

As a result, my .jpgs are now set to -1 on sharpening as my standard setting

(I have LR5 set not to apply any auto processing on import)

Re: OMD E-M1 Sample Images

Hi everyone,
i don't usually post on any forums,but thought i would join the learning curve of the EM-1.Disclaimer,i am not a photographer,more a dog walker with camera and sadly lacking in pp skills.
I've had the camera a week now with a "cheap" adapter and i use the bigma.Due to weather and sciatica i,ve been limited in usage.
Ive not found any of the problems mentioned on here so far.
Anyway a couple of pics.The goldfinch is at 500mm f8 iso 400 from about 6 metres and the nuthatch is at 50mm f4 iso 3200 from about 4 feet.
Both are approximately 50% crops.







Neil

Re: OMD E-M1 Sample Images

One of my favourite Surfing shots from this afternoon, managing to capture the moment just before he finally lost contact with his board. Shot off Boscombe Pier

I still can't see the EXIF (even though it was included with the image file) so here is some info:

ISO800, f8 for 1/1000th sec, hand-held 6fps, 234mm with CAF (I think). its around 70% of the original frame
