Art filters

Went out with our local U3A photo group today, told to use our special scene modes so did a couple in Dramatic tone art filter.
Just as well as the light wasn't all that goo, very bright and contrasty.

Re: Art filters

Love the DT filter but it has to be used with care which you have done very skilfully here.

Re: Art filters

Yes I agree with that the tone in the images works very well.

Re: Art filters

Thanks guys. Must say it is easy to use it just because conditions are not better.

Re: Art filters

Reminds me of the days of shooting analogue film through a red filter, so much easier nowadays with in camera settings!

Nice images and perfect skies for the shoot.

Re: Art filters

Definitely well suited shots to the DT art filter.

Re: Art filters

Agree with the learned opinions above. The skies just suited this treatment.

Agrees. These are very nice and look tecnically great. The Dramatic Tone flter is wonderful, but it can also be instructive, especially if you've gone through life thinking you don't have a CA problem....

Re: Art filters

This thread has been very useful as I'm trying to find out more about the Olympus Art filters. The manuals for my E-P3 and E-M5 merely list the filters provided and give no details of the effect they have on an image. And then you have the various add-ons like frames, vignettes etc.

I've been experimenting using Olympus Viewer 3 which can apply the same filters etc to Olympus RAW files as it's easier to see what's happening on my computer monitor than the camera, and I've found a few reviews which give them a cursory mention. Does anyone know of a detailed description of the filters and the usage? (At the moment I'm trying to put together some guidance for myself as an aide-memoire, as if one exists else I haven't been able to find it!)

CA?

Or for the word length thing: What's CA?

Chromatic Aberration, Dan. Often shows up as purple or green fringes along high contrast edges near the corners of the frame.

I live view you should see the filter effect on the screen when shooting and if the camera is set to RAW shooting you will get a standard RAW file plus an art filter JPEG so I just get out there and play with them.

I find really useful on my XZ-1

Yeah - noticed some nasty fringing on some (but not all) of the photos where I used Dramatic Tone with the kit lens of my E-PM2. Like all Olympus kit lenses, it's good but not free of limitations.
