Em5 highlights in bright sunlight.
Feb 9, 2014

With my previous cameras: panasonic fz9, fz50 and lx5, I always had the EV set to -2/3 when going out in strong sunlight (which we have plenty of here in Israel, even in winter), in order to save highlights. With the em5 that is usually too dark, while using no EV tends to get the wights too white. I tried -1/3 and that wasn't perfect either. What do you recommend using for good exposures before using PP. The lenses I tried out where the panny 20/1/7. the oly 45/1.8 ad the oly 40-150, which to my surprised did the best job in getting the exposure right.
