Haven’t taken that many pictures during the last days, but today we went in with Zuleikha to her weekly guitar lesson. Today was the second last one, so I developed some of those photos to give them to the kids and parents next week. Haven’t asked whether I can use them on my blog, so here’s only one during my conversion with RawTherapee:
Yesterday DPReview published their full test of the new Nikon D600 camera, so I immediately downloaded some raw files and started to work on them. Awesome. I’m sure that the D800 and D800E are even better, but I’d love to have one of those D600 with a nifty fifty and some 105mm macro.
For comparison, I also did the same today with some older and newer raws from the Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera. Since these photos are copyrighted by their owners/creators, the most I can do is to show some thumbnails from after my conversions:
Also a pretty nice and capable camera, tho I probably wouldn’t underexpose an ISO 2000 shot like DPReview did with a bicycle photo. Otherwise and at lower ISOs it’s not that much worse than a Nikon; if all you want is small and still capable, this could be the one. I removed the noise reduction from the two model shots from Focus Numerique (these were ISO 200 and 400), and they’re awesome. For the portrait of one of the DPReview staff, they’ve used a Sigma 30mm lens which is also nice and pretty sharp, should be an incredible lens on a Sony Nex as well. Corrected the white balance on him since I found the original setting a bit too orange for my taste.
Nice that you can download raw files and play around like this. Both cameras are better than what we have, but that was more or less expected.
And now, for today, I think I’ll retire, as butler James would say to Miss Sophie (in “Dinner for One”). Thanks for reading.
