Iso 1600 noise: E-M1 vs. E-510 vs. E-300
Apr 5, 2014

Having just received my new e-m1, I did a few portrait shots over the breakfast table  at ISO 1600, which gave 1/100 f4, with noise filter off (I dislike smudging more than honest noise):

- the e-m1 is a vast improvement as to noise over both of my previous e cameras

- however, to my surprise, the e-300 is better than midway in noise between the e-m1 and the e-510 which is the worst of the 3.

- in fact the e-300 is acceptable while the e-510 is not

I will keep shooting with the e-300 as a second camera, inside.
