Re: Getting best Dynamic Range with OMD.

Hi

Must say I was amused when reading the D90 never gave DR problems and the E-M5 is not shaping.....

In comparison the D90 uses a ancient sensor with significantly less capability when compared to the E-M5.....saying it differently....if you manage with the D90 then the E-M5 should be really exciting for you....

Nothing wrong with the D90....at its time maybe one of the best....today its really part of yesterdays great ones....

My advice is start with what ever settings you have set in the E-M5....things like sharpness -1....saturation this and the other that and cancel all....

See the article I wrote on basic E-M5 settings on the Photography is Fun website plus the article I wrote on how to use the histogram on the E-M5.

If you new to the E-M5 its a good idea to shoot in the mornings and afternoons and not over lunch. When clouds you might get into a situation where you might loose some highlight detail in the clouds..... Highlight details means those parts over exposed will turn white....in clouds thats not too difficult to manage....

Worse case you could use SAT to trim down DR or you could use the curves function to trim down highlights and up shadows if needed.....

Finally shoor RAW and edit in LR4....you will be amazed what you can pull out an image.....

Most important is you need to show us examples......I love to see these DR images....

Best

Siegfried
