Well done, Dustin!

That is another great selection of photos. Are you using Photo Matrix for the HDR's?
Thanks for posting. We will be looking fo more.

Thanks Sarah.

And to answer your question, yes I use Photomatix for my HDRs.

Dustin-

Thanks for the info on Photo Matrix. I am really impressed with your EPL-1. Were the art museum photos taken on a tripod, the detail is excellent?

Welcome to the world of m4/3, Dustin. Ain't it great?!? I'm debating as to whether I should get the EPL1 in replacement for my EP1 or wait hoping that Oly (or Panasonic) will eventually include some sort of EVF on those compact m4/3 models. Tough decision to make. The EPL1 seems to have a great sensor (better than the EP1) and the kit lens is also very good. Will see.

I really liked your series. All images are well exposed (well, the HDR took care of the more difficult lighting condition, I guess), showing very good DR. Nice job with the selection.

Earlier he said no tripod as the museum did not allow tripods or flash photography, which makes them all the more impressive. Even though the lighting looks great, you know the slow kit lens had to mean higher ISO settings to keep the shutter speeds manageable at all.

yes, as Greg said, no tripod. so i was relegated to 1 stop increments for 3 shots. i used continuous shooting mode to lessen movement between shots.

Tulio - I would probably wait for the next generation. the lighter AA filter on the EPL1 gives it a slight edge over the ep1, but its really pretty small. Don't think its a big enough difference to warrant a change at this point as the cameras are very similar in many respects. I would wait for the next one, which will be surely interesting.

well form the inside scoop of oly, the next one will be even a simpler m4/3 camera. You may have to wait a bit longer to see a higher level m4/3 form only. I really think they are going after the high end bridge camera's with the epl-1 and what ever the next one will be.

But next to being able to shoot very well at 2000iso and acceptable at 2500 and 3200iso. There is not much more of an advantage the epl-1 has over your ep1. The flash is not as good as an external flash. Only can off bounce 8-10ft ceilings. The ep1 does look nicer then the epl-1.
