Try shooting a wedding RAW.

Happy post processing!

Done it, it's no big deal if you know what you're doing.



Firstly, I wouldn't trust any camera set to record JPEGs for a wedding as white balance is one area where most cams make mistakes but the risk of an incorrect exposure in the heat of the moment would ensure I shot RAW.

Secondly, weddings require a neutral colour balance - one of the reasons it took a while to get wedding photographers off of HG400 fujifilm and the like. Most out of camera JPEGs including Oly's are far from neutral.
