Did you use spot metering in shooting these, or were you using the cameras' multi-segment metering system?

I played with a white E-P3 at Arlington Camera today while picking up my 12mm f2 Zuiko. Very impressive camera.

Spot Greg, but I inadvertently dialed in +1/3 EV and that didn't help with Shutter Speed or Highlights...I can't see real well on the OLED even though it is super!...

I should note sitting down that close the lights were right in th cameras eyes also...which didn't help exposures...the EP3 did a wonderful job, if it had been in your hands the photos would have been SUPER!!! Still learning and a guy just doesn't get to shoot lowlight performances that often, so i am challenged when i do...

The metering in these looks great to me. The spotlights on the side are just an issue everyone has to deal with. They are very much there in many of my images as well. I saw the comment by Donald Chin in your post over at DPR. He's an idiot who just needs to stay in the full-frame Nikon D3 world/forum but he can't help himself. I saw 1-2 small areas of a couple of images that looked slightly clipped, but certainly nothing to rate a comment like his.

When I was playing with the E-P3 yesterday I noted how nice the back LCD was. I see lots of comments about how the colors are almost "too good" on that screen and files, once downloaded and viewed on a computer screen, do not have the same pop. Myself, I do not really think too much when I open a picture in Adobe Camera RAW about how much it does or does not look like how I remember it on the back LCD, but whether it looks the way I remember seeing it myself before taking the picture.

Certain types of shooting for me can be disorienting if I try and follow a subject and shoot with the back LCD and small areas that can look OK on the back LCD are better seen with an eye level finder like the VF-2. That's why I rarely use the Pen without it.

Now I see why you said the EP3 suited you....

Good timing with all the acrobat action shots

G'day LTZ

What a fab!! set of images - I would love to have some of them [from my efforts]
Unf- down here in Oz circuses with animals are not welcome in many areas [Peta + others] and also most are putting up a shingle at the entranceway "no photography indoors"

Regards, Phil

...well, I like these very much. You & the P3 did well, I hope I might make some files as good with my P3 although I do not have that lens.

Bob I think Greg did better with the 20mm 1.7...he shot RAW, and those came out great!
Thanks for your kind words always...

I dunno. These were awfully good.

Today I received my 45mm f1.8 Zuiko. I wish I had had this lens for the circus. This thing's TINY.
