Photos: E-1 vs E-620

I thought this comparison might be interesting; forgive me if it's mundane.
The e-1 photo was cropped, 2000x1500, before resizing to 1000x750 for the web.
The e-620 photo remained full size, 4000x3000 before web sizing to 1000x750.
(The e-1 photo was cropped only to make the field of view match in both photos because the e-1 photo was shot at 24mm versus the e-620's 30mm.)
Both shots used the same lens (12-60swd), on a tripod and both were focus stacks where five or six similar photos are run through software that picks out the sharpest bits to make the best image. The only other significant difference was the apertures: f5.6 for the e-1 and f13 for the e-620. So advantage there goes to the e-1.
Do keep in mind these are crunched jpegs, and obviously, my procedure is wildly unscientific. The idea came as an afterthought, using two photos taken months apart. But it does suggest that the e-1 has no trouble competing with the larger sensor, even when cropped to only 3MP.

There is more of this sort of silliness at my website:
http://www.photo.technopeasant.org/l.../201204a_html/
At that page, #3, #4, and #7 were taken with the e-1. It's love, I tell ya!

from the e-1


from the e-620

Re: Photos: E-1 vs E-620

It does not surprise me as usually bigger pixels on the same area equates to better quality and the detail in the tree trunk is much better.

Off course the drawback to that equation is that the E-1 loses out if you need to crop into the image and print big.

Re: Photos: E-1 vs E-620

Thanks for looking, Paul. Yes, I do miss the ability to crop in as much, but like the way that forces me to compose more carefully.

Re: Photos: E-1 vs E-620

Aperture of F13? Is there an F13?

The 620 seems to blend the background and tree a bit too much, something our e-600 did too until moving WhiteBalance one stop away from Red, now its better.

In this comparison, with everything from f-number to display size to moss colour stacked in favour of the E-1 ... the E-1 wins.

Re: Photos: E-1 vs E-620

f13: perhaps your camera is set for full EV steps? At both half and third steps, f13 shows up as an option.
I'll try what you suggest with the white balance. The 620 does seem to blend finer detail. I'd always thought that was due to its stronger anti-aliasing fitter, but would be happy to give it whatever help I can.
