  • I used to live next to a beautiful canal in Utrecht, but now I live next to a swamp in Israel.
  • Replied in Super
    Thanks for the explanation.

    It's not meant to be a guideline for how to set the exposure (shutter speed and aperture). The guideline for setting the exposure is to expose to the right, and when this method is used you ...

    No, I don't think so. There's nothing wrong with DxO's "Measured ISO" scale. In fact it's a much better choice than the ISO setting scale for presenting the ratio between the highest and lowest ...
  • OK, now I understand. But I think that the use of the ISO setting is counter intuitive. For example, based on DxO's measurements, the DR of the E-M1mk2's is almost the same as the mk1, which means ...
  • I mean that this is how the photographic dynamic range looks on your site, where the E-M1mk2 tops the A6500 starting from ISO 200: And this is how the DR plot looks on DxO site, where the A6500 ...
  • Thanks for the report. But I have a question - when comparing the E-M1mk2 to Sony A6500 on your site it looks like the Olympus is above the Sony starting from ISO 200, but on DxO the Sony is above ...
  • Yes, that's correct. I posted the better graphs here . Why? In my opinion the dark-tones measurement of noise (i.e. DR) is more indicative of the camera low light performance than the mid-tones ...

    Yes, I see what you mean, should have compared at the same pixel count. Here are updated graphs. The difference in DR is still minor (1/6 EV advantage to the E-M1mk2) and hard to notice.
  • The sensor size difference suggests that APS-C should have a better dynamic range of about 1 EV at the same sensor saturation level ("measured ISO") (assuming same tech generation). DxO reports ...

    Because they are don't, and actually this is what DxO reports, see below. The DR (shadow noise) is the same as the mk1, and the rest of the measures (mid-tones and highlights noise), where the mk2 ...
  • First you need to decide about your budget: If you want a solution in up to 120$, I'd go with a flash like the Meike/Neewer 320 or Metz 24-AF1 or Metz 26-AF1 (in either case - get the MFT ...
  • You need to be aware of the sync speed. The E-M10's max speed sync is about 1/250th, and usually this is too slow compared to the shutter speed that you need  in situations with strong back light. ...
  • There is the Aokatec solution, but it's cumbersome and probably not cheap.  Besides that, I agree with everything you said in this thread.
  • Yes, but notice that there are two Panasonic 12-60 - an F3.5-F5.6 and an F2.8-F4 and both are weather-sealed. This thread was opened 10 months ago, so it was about the slower one.
  • You can ignore this particular image, the grainy film art filter is complicating the story for no reason. I should have avoided it. I agree that some jpegs look under exposed in terms of their ...
  • This is what Iliah Borg reported here and I assume that he compared to other models. I don't have first hand experience with this. This is what RawDigger says about this file: This RAW file is ...
  • Yes, which is another reason to avoid comparisons between the E-M1 ii and other models using dpreview's studio comparison tool. I remember you had a nice thread about this topic.
  • In many cases that's what you'll end up doing. For example - the snow conditions from that gallery. But also in other situations. Given that the camera is calibrated to have more highlight ...
  • This picture was taken using Shutter priority mode, not Manual mode. But that's not the point. The point is that an inexperienced photographer can easily be fooled by the way the camera ISO is ...
