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/52704051Any comment/opinion is welcome in that regard,many thanks in advance for the attention.
My preferred shot in this challenge. Compliments! :)
I really like this picture, maybe a little too much vignette, but very nice indeed :)
Nice shot! :)
Congratulation for the shot and the well deserved win: I really like this photo!
Many thanks :)
Harshal: absolutely brilliant ..
I'm glad you liked it, many thanks. :)
Dushman: What a composition! Great job!
Many thanks, I like your "Paper rainbow" shot :)
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.

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 :)
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.
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)
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)
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 ...
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 :)
I own a Panasonic GF1 with 14-45 and 45-200 zoom, 20mm-f1.7 and Olympus 45mm-f1.8.
Currently only the 20mm is supported as camera module and I'm sad to see that both the zoom lenses are not planned for support.
The 14-45 and 45-200 zoom lenses were released back in 2008.The 14-45 is not an esoteric lens, it was the kit lens sold with all the first generation of Panasonic m43 cameras(and still is slightly better than the more recent 14-42).This means that a vast majority of the Panasonic m43 camera users own it and uses it.So I'm wondering why those two zoom lenses are still not supported today, and, in my humble opinion, this has nothing to do with the need to get the new camera bodies to be calibrated.
BTW, I have tried the DxO 6.6 some months ago, but, as expected, the lack of the 14-45 amd 45-200 modules was a no-go for me.I Hope this will be addressed soon, because I will be more than happy to give another try to the current rev. 7.
Thanks for the attention,Ciao :)
