Default Yes, indeed!

Glad to see someone posting some E-620 images. Looks like you didn't have too much of a break-in period with your new toy


Now for some baseball shots!

BTW, I finally downloaded Adobe Camera RAW 5.4 successfully and am going to give shooting some images in RAW a go of it. For no other reason than to see how much, if any, detail I can pull out of images.

Who knows, I may even go to a race track

When I go to the game tomorrow night, I'm....ahem....gonna shoot SHQ JPEG and see what happens.

I'm finding the E620, at its default settings and using a Low noise filter setting produces excellent results. Once you get to ISO 1600 or so, I can apply the Noiseware Pro filter and completely eliminate noise and get a better looking result than shooting RAW and messing unending amounts of time with each file trying to get a better result. Even ISO 2500 looks very, very good after using the Noiseware Pro filter.

Boy, you are so right!! After downloading Camera RAW 5.4 the other night, I set off yesterday morning to shoot some images of the Ospreys. I set the E-30 to RAW and fired away. Came home with 50 plus shots, downloaded them and THEN realized what I'd gotten myself into. Wow, after being used to PP JPEGS, working on RAW files is just way too time consuming. And to top it all off, I honestly don't think I gained any benefit, in terms of resolving more detail or IQ.

I'm looking forward to seeing your first baseball images done with the E-620.

So my coupling with the Olympus E-620 is going to have to wait until our return on 15 August 2009.

Sarah...how would you compare the 620 vs the sony a230?? Now that you've had a chance with both..
