Smile Olympus OM-D-E10 high ISO

Just sold my Canon FF system for something much lighter....just bought an Olympus OM-D-E10 with simple 12-42mm kit lens just to test its high ISO.
If all goes well i'm planning of buying the top range Olympus OM-D E-M1 with 12-40mm & 40-150mm f/2.8
Here is a pic taken at ISO6400 no PP




So far so good

Hi Gillermo,

I've had pretty good luck with the higher ISO when I need it--just look out for using it if you get the Panasonic 20mm. There's an issue with it and shooting at higher ISO (still a great lens). On mine it started around ISO5000

With my EM10 I usually set the limit to 1600 but that's pretty conservative and I can go deeper if necessary (action, etc).

...hi Guillermo, Alan's comment goes for me too.

I've seen your posts before, but it has been sometime.

Again, welcome,

Bob

Everything looks to be ok....only thing i don't like too much is the menu....seems pretty confusing compared to Canon..... Maybe someone can help ? I'm looking to find the AF target....where you can ask the camera to focus in the total range of spots....when you do that with a Canon or Nikon you get to see many scares get lid all over the frame but here the only one getting lid is the one in the center.....so i cannot see the difference between general focus and spot focus....strange.

I don't have my camera with me at the moment, but if you haven't already press the button up on the viewfinder on the right hand side. That will open up what they call the "Super Control Panel" that will give you much more access to the different options. One of the options is to change AF type.

Most users are used to it by now, but the menu system is the worst part of Olympus . . .

Yes, once you learn the "Super Control Panel", it actually provides a quick way to change a lot of settings. Having now used Oly for years, I now prefer the Super Control Panel over other cameras menus.

Well.... i still don't see what i'm looking for..... if i want the camera to AF without a specific spot but on the whole image.....with a Canon or a Nikon you get many different areas all over the screen which will be lid .... like if i'm shooting throught or next to a tree.... i will have several squares lid regarding on the distance of the AF....here i just get one square lid...
if i choose spot AF it will be always central which is obvious but if i ask for general AF i will get just one square lid on the screen ....it's impossible to think that the camera will AF only on one place and not on all of the places where it can lock AF.
