  • Like Wisnu said, maybe you had something on auto, maybe white balance or one of the modes other than M? That's all I can think of.

    Are you able to reproduce this?

        • Now it shows up for some reason. Must have been my Internet connection. Sorry about that.

            No problem, so what do you think about the NEX 5N?

              Major factors for me not to choose the Sony, were the shutter speed and lack of high quality lenses. And the optional and non integrated EVF really turned me off.

              Of course it's a great camera, very compact (this seems to have been the design priority) and high quality. Aesthetically not very pleasing though (i.e. it's butt ugly), and that brings us to the fact cameras (like cars) are often a choice of the heart and not so much the brain. I would have gone for the Nex 7 btw, its specs are spectacular (haven't really tried it, only in the store).

              PS: I don't see the pic you posted either, probably something wrong with the system.

                • Jstar pretty much summed it up for me I still think that m43 is a superior alternative at this stage thanks to the wide lens selection.

                  • Still relating to m4/3, if you are interested here I wrote a short review of various lens for EPL-1 underwater.

                    Unfortunately, I will not have a chance to use my OM-D for underwater in near future.

                    • Got a chance to play around some more with my OM-D in Bali last week.

                      Here are a few samples:







                      I am really impressed with how Lightroom is capable of detail recovery in both highlights and shadows. To illustrate this, see the original raw pic straight out of camera for the last photo:



                      It also performs quite well on the bicycle shot. The frame should be really dark, yet heaps of details are retained.

                      Also note the very good quality of the Olympus 12mm F2.0.

                        So you flooded your XZ-1? Oh no...

                        I suppose you haven't found a casing for the OM-D yet?

                          Looks very good. Yes, the lens does make a difference...

                          What settings did you use?

                          • All shot in RAW

                            From top to bottom:

                            - F9 1/250 ISO400
                            - F2 1/4000 ISO400
                            - F2 1/4000 ISO400

                            There wasn't any reason for me to shoot the tree at f2.0 other than I forgot to change the settings from shooting the bicycle nearby.

                              The equivalent of 24mm f/4 on full-frame, right? Nice shots, btw...

                                Thanks

                                Yes it is the equivalent to 24mm in focal length. In terms of f-stop it is the same as full frame, as in the same amount of light will come in. So f2 on m4/3 = f2 on FF. However, in terms of depth of field, f2 on m4/3 = f4 on FF.
