Hello,
this is a good addition,
but the problem I have noticed is that the "default" profile for the E-M1 (and Panasonic GM1 too) is not consistent with the previous models (E-M5, E-P5 or GH3) as for reds/oranges color rendition.
And it seems to me that this "inconsistency" is affecting even Sony A7/A7r and Nikon D5300 cameras for example.
I have posted my observations here:
http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52704051
Any comment/opinion is welcome in that regard,
many thanks in advance for the attention.

I really like this picture, maybe a little too much vignette, but very nice indeed :)

NeroMetalliko: Hello, please correct me if I'm wrong:

- no more multi aspect aspect ratio sensor
- no mention on minimum shutter speed option in auto ISO
- no mention on zebra and/or some kind of realtime liveview highlight clipping
- no mention on focus peaking
Any comment is welcome.

No minimum shutter speed in auto iso is a real shame in recent bodies!
It's a zero-time firmware feature to enable, there is nothing to develop, it needs only to add a menu entry with custom multiplier for the shutter value in the auto ISO routine.
Very disappointed...

Thanks for the answer,
I have checked the specs on the panasonic.co.uk website
http://www.panasonic.co.uk/html/en_GB/Products/LUMIX+Digital+Cameras/LUMIX+G+Compact+System+Cameras/DMC-GH3/Specification/10546806/index.html?trackInfo=true
and definitely there is NOT more the multi aspect:
"
Still Image:
[4:3] 4608x3456(L) / 3264x2448(M) / 2336x1752(S) / 1824x1368 (with 3D lens in Micro Four Thirds System standard) / [3:2] 4608x3072(L) / 3264x2176(M) / 2336x1560(S) / 1824x1216 (with 3D lens in Micro Four Thirds System standard) / [16:9] 4608x2592(L) / 3264x1840(M) / 1920x1080(S) / 1824x1024 (with 3D lens in Micro Four Thirds System standard) / [1:1] 3456x3456(L) / 2448x2448(M) / 1744x1744(S) / 1712x1712 (with 3D lens in Micro Four Thirds System standard)
"

3:2 16:9 and 1:1 are cropped from 4:3

so DPR seems to be wrong on this,
and too much announcements:
there were a lot of errors today in the previews so I'm not surprised...

On Wood_and_glass in the Toy Bricks challenge (8 comments in total)

The shot was taken on a tripod. These are wooden toy bricks reflected on a black glass placed under a windows (with white curtains). There is an additional lateral light diffused by white paper sheets. The image was then rotated 90 degrees in order to be less recognizable, with a nice "floating" illusion effect.
Many thanks for the votes. :)

NeroMetalliko: "Minor Post-Processing interventions are acceptable"
I'm often confused when I see these rules: for example it's a black and white converted (or sepia tone) picture intended to be allowed or not? And can contrast be enhanced (via levels or curves)?
Thanks for the attention in advance.

Thanks for the answer,
I understand your point, however (and usually) I shoot RAW and color even for BW work, because the BW/sepia conversion is waaay more flexible/effective if you have independent access to the three color channels, being not limited by the 256 gray levels of the in-camera jpeg.

On Curling Fronds in the Pattern challenge (1 comment in total)

Hello,
congratulations for your idea of the shot and the win.
I have to admit that I liked more the concept than the technical execution (but my own entry is not perfect too...) :)
I have started a thread in the challenges forum to get some opinions, feel free to add your comment.
Ciao,
Andrea :)

On Crenellated_darkness in the Gothic challenge (1 comment in total)

The exact exposure is: 1/1.3s at f2.8 (sorry, there were problems with commas/points when submitting data...)
Due to sensor size and little additional crop in post the 35mm equivalent focal length (and DOF) could be considered ~45mm.

On Sunrise in Torres Del Paine in the Mountain ranges challenge (3 comments in total)

Hello,
congratulation for the shot! :)
(I like it more than the first classified that I find a little bit over coloured an too much sharpened)

On Cableway_station in the Mountain ranges challenge (1 comment in total)

Just two additional technical notes:
- Capture time was 12:28 (GMT)
- Due to crop sensor factor and further crop in post, the equivalent FF (35mm) focal length should be considered ~135mm (with a ~f7.5 DOF)

On DxO Labs launches Optics Pro 7.1 for Mac and Windows article (95 comments in total)
In reply to:

Thaddeus W. Pruss: I just wonder why Panasonic’s Lumix G Vario 7-14mm F4 ASPH is still not supported by DxO? This is the most highly regarded (and prized by dpreview) Panasonic’s mFT lens with many devoted followers. Selection problem? This situation puts off many DxO potential users.

Instead, DxO Labs choses - for Panasonic mFT cameras - the combination with Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm 1:4.0-5.6 ...

Hello,

it's really nice to see a DxO team member offering feedback here,

I'm happy to hear these news,
once the 14-45 and 45-200 modules are added I will try again for sure.

Many thanks.
Ciao :)
