Re: How can you adjust jpeg compression in Olympus O-MD E-M1?

In addition to the several points raised by other respondents, I think it worthwhile to mention that the LSF setting in Olympus camera comes with a very low degree of jpeg compression, 2.7:1.

I am not aware of any other camera make or model with a less compressed jpeg (most start at 4:1). I am also not aware of any camera in which you can set the degree of jpeg compression in the way common to computer based software (as a percentage or on an arbitrary numerical scale). Perhaps you or others could enlighten me if that is not the case.

I believe that a number of other settings should enable one to reduce any compression artifacts to a negligible level but, if those prove to continue to be troublesome, the only solution will be to shoot RAW and post process to your satisfaction.
