Man, I have had it with this OMD. It just can't take a good photo.

I really like what you've done to the place.

...and yes, the OM-D is garbage.

Quite obviously you should be using iAuto mode instead of Manual. It was intended for people like you.

Obviously you are in dire need of some basic lessons.  The OMD is not dumb as evidenced by a great many photographers producing many outstanding photos

I usually think it's cruel to laugh at someone, but how can I not.

Looks like...

Looks like this is the sequal to "OMD strap isn't what I expected" soap opera,  nice try.

The sad thing is that some people do post threads like this and they really mean it.

Cheers

come on, man, op's shooting technique is not bad at all. Look at that bottle, for me, I would get more than a dozen instead of just a relatively clean ONE under 6 sec handheld......

Indeed ... the IBIS simply didn't work

Camera shake everywhere.

Re: Really Dumb camera can't take photos

Ahh, I see you've got some shutter shock there. You should be using a tripod for a photo like that.

I should also point out that a DSLR will take an image twice as well exposed, with half the amount of blur, for the same settings.

I've had a much closer look at your image since my first comment and I've decided it has far too much detail. It needs more exposure.

Wow, the social IQ of the people not getting this joke is astounding. You might want to get away from the computer once in a while..

Have you considered "exposing to the left"?
