E-M5 Exposure compensation
Aug 14, 2014

I'm a new user of the E-M5, and have noticed that the camera appears to shoot somewhat under exposed images at the default settings, perhaps to preserve highlight details. I'm wondering whether other users have noticed this. Note that I always shoot RAW images, so I don't know what JPEGs would look like at the default settings.

I also recall that a number of users of digital SLR's used to advocate ETTR (expose to the right) - in other words to dial in positive exposure compensation, to reduce noise levels in shadow areas.

My question for E-M5 users is whether you dial in positive exposure compensation, and if so how much, or do you go with the default settings.
