E-30 vs G1 sensor comparison...
Feb 6, 2009

Hello everyone,

I've been eagerly awaiting the E-30 ever since the G1 was released... wondering how the 12Mp sensor + Olympus AA filter combination will compare with the Panasonic implementation.

I've been troubled a little, by colour demosaicing artifacts in my G1 RAW images - when extreme pixel peeped (well, we are on dpreview aren't we? lol)... and here's a direct illustration of how the two compare.

I will upload the RAW files for both to our running Safari Group field reviews...

I've e-mailed Mike Chaney, who is the most responsive RAW converter author (Qimage Studio will convert both G1 and E-30 RAW files on full auto superbly) - to ask whether he can improve the demosaicing for the G1 to reduce the colour artifacts while retaining the detail...

p.s. I've just noticed the shutter speed on the E-30 slipped to 1/125sec... will reshoot to make sure it's an exact comparison.

Kind Regards
