    I forgot to mention that the image I posted IS NOT STRAIGHT FROM THE CAMERA.  As with nearly all images, this needed some adjustments in Elements: Enhance, auto contrast Ctrl-L, then move the...

  • Replied in Try panorama
    I take only landscapes and demand needle sharpness for large prints to hang on the wall. When I encounter a great scene that will make a great print, I take the time to take a panorama, but not the...

    Wow, I was in the same place as you but 48 hours later.  I see by your EXIF data your shot was taken at 12:08 PM on June 20.  Mine was at 11:43AM on June 22 and I also had great weather.  Sadly the...
  • Replied in Hey Mr. Ed:
    I agree with you that highlight details are lost with the E-PL5.  I upgraded from E-PL1 to E-PL5 a week before leaving for 3 weeks in Alaska.  I just returned with just over 7,000 shots.  I do...
  • Thanks.  I wonder why Olympus "writers" decided to "hide" the choices I was looking for when they could have been made visible..
  • I am about to leave for Alaska with my new E-PL5 and I am unable to assign a Myset to SCN on the mode dial.  I followed your fine explanation...
  • I have used the sharpest F stop for this lens per two lens testing sites.  My final products are large prints hanging on a wall.  Once they get sharper than the human eye can see there is no reason...
  • Replied in Less noise
    Zoom in on the stop sign at the center of the image.  With the E-PL5 it is sharper, of course, but also of note is that the dark areas around it have far less noise (just as you observed with the...
  • Replied in I agree
    Yes, the store front is indeed better with the E-PL5.  I had both cameras set on LOW noise reduction instead of NORMAL.  Perhaps these terms do not result in the same level of noise reduction in...

  • My new E-PL5 body arrived yesterday and I have now compared it to my trusty 3 year old E-PL1.  To do so I took the same landscapes at the same exposures. All settings were the same in both...
  • Replied in Answer
    I took so many panoramas from this spot that it is easy to get them confused.  All were taken with my Oly E-PL1 with a Panasonic lens or Canon FD manual focus lenses.  The one that you are asking...
  • Replied in Thanks
    Thank you all for your nice remarks.  Today I will try out my new E-PL5.
  • Here are a few more taken with my Oly E-PL1. Eastern Washington  Golden Gate Bridge - San Francisco.  This is a composite of many images Virginia Beach, Oregon.  This is a 3x1 panorama. The Space...
