Re: A quick day out with the Olympus E-M1 and the SONY a7

Just to clarify the terms:
NR is Noise Reduction, used for dark frame subtraction on long exposures.
NF is Noise Filter, used to suppress ISO noise.
I reckon it is the latter you mean here.

DR in the E-M1 is reduced by some 1.3 EV w/ ISO 100 compared to (base) ISO 200.
So you will be way better off handling harsh contrast and highlights using ISO 200.
That said, I'm surprised you found the need to run NF in post on the E-M1 ISO 100 pics here!
To me they look clean as a whistle.

For the reds I agree, provided you use ACR.
Developing the ORFs in Oly Viewer does not saturate reds that much.
Otherwise, thx for an interesting comparison.
Btw, did you sense any shutter shock on either camera?
