Full size Olympus OM-D E-M5 RAW and JPEG samples to download

Our first chance to share some full size E-M5 RAW and JPEG samples

Today was the first day of Focus on Imaging 2012, the largest annual photo trade show in the UK. It's also open to members of the public. Olympus was, naturally, exhibiting the new OM-D E-M5 and late in the day I learned that one of the three cameras on hand was a late pre-production sample with v.1.00 firmware. With the proviso that I emphasised that the camera was not a final production sample even though it had production release firmware, I was given permission to publish full resolution sample images, including RAW files.

I had literally ten minutes to take some test shots at different ISO settings and all were taken hand-held in really dim end of the day light on and around the Olympus booth, so please no complaints about artistic quality! I set the camera to Large Fine JPEG mode plus RAW, with the noise filter off and Image Stabilisation set to Mode 1. Most of these shots were taken using a m.Zuiko 45mm f/1.8 but some were taken using the m.Zuiko 12-50.

The first two below were shot accidentally with the 16:9 (widescreen) setting and without accompanying RAW files, both with the 45mm f/1.8 @f/4 and at ISO 1600. Also, the clock in the camera was not set properly.

You can download the camera JPEG; just click on the thumbnail of your choice to display the JPEG image in your browser or right-click and select download target image. Please note that these images are copyrighted and are for personal evaluation only. They must not be copied and/or posted to third party websites.
