Gradation discussion
Feb 18, 2011

Does anyone use the low key or high key gradation?
Is anyone using spot highlight or spot shadow metering?

I am looking for a little better explanation than the Olympus manual gives. This has been available for a long time. E-500 had high key as a scene mode.
Does anyone know how much the gradation curve is affected by these.

The E-5 manual just says "gradation for bright subject". When I use it, exposure is even brighter and seem to blow out highlights even more.

I saw the very recent post showing the difference gained in shadows with the auto-gradation. A very good example.

Just looking for a little friendly advice!

Thanks in advance.
