Is it possible to do a "Levels" adjustment in-camera?
Jan 16, 2014

In Photoshop you have the Levels adjustment that allows you to set the white and black points in the histogram. It then stretches the histogram to fit, usually resulting in an image with better contrast.

I was wondering if it was possible to achieve the same kind of result in-camera - effectively stretching the histogram? I know I can shift it back and forth using exposure compensation, but that's not quite the same.

I tried fiddling with contrast but that didn't seem to make any difference. Is it brightness? Or curves?

My camera is an EM-1 in case that has a particular feature that can be used. I'm on a mini-mission to see if I can increase my OOC jpeg keeper rate and save on post-processing time you see.
