Unfortunately the only "uncompressed" file that the EM1 (or any Olympus camera) will produce is the RAW files. If you want JPEGs OOC - the best is the L-SF which according to the manual is a 1/2.7 compression ratio.

Thanks for mentioning this. It made me search in the manual and now I found the table where the compression ratios are listed.

And it sucks that there is no other option. It's slightly boggling to me that the camera offers control over something like whether auto focus should favor the left eye or the right eye of a face, but doesn't offer a better jpeg quality setting.
