Surprising boost to E-P3 focusing speed.
Apr 22, 2012

Following DonParrot's discovery regarding the E-M5 here :
http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1041&message=41294319

I tried setting the E-P3 picture mode to vivid, sRGB, max sharpness/contrast/saturation and shot some video with AF-C to get a sense of focusing speed.

Compared this with my usual lowest contrast settings (muted, Adobe colour space, min sharpness/contrast/saturation) and there is a definite difference in focusing speed.

So, from now on, if I'm shooting faster moving action and want maximum focusing speed, I'll select vivid/sRGB/max sharpness, contrast and saturation... I shoot raw so it won't affect my raw files.

Thanks again to DonParrot for this amazing discovery
