ISO range test, starting with ISO 200 (click on the image to view the rest on Flickr):

I'm not entirely happy with these, but there simply wasn't enough time to set up an ideal test and I will repeat them, with RAW files, later when I get a camera to review properly.

That said, the ISO 25600 is certainly not a complete waste of time and would be fine for use on the Web, for example. The Olympus in-camera processing of very high ISO shots has always been impressive compared to DIY processing of RAW files in my experience so this will be interesting later on.

Re: A day on location with the E-M1 II on Saturday

Thank you for the report, Ian! I look forward to your further investigation.

A couple of points I'm confused about. First, I thought that Pro capture did work in RAW as well as JPEG for all speeds, even 60 fps capture. I looked on the Olympus website, and it seems to indicate that Pro capture works in RAW. Here is the table of speeds/maximum number of images from getolympus.com:

[Sequential shooting H 15fps] RAW: Max. 84 frames, JPEG (LN): Max. 117 frames
[Sequential shooting L 10fps] RAW: Max. 148 frames, JPEG (LN): Until card is full
[Silent sequential shooting H 60fps] RAW: Max. 48 frames, JPEG (LN): Max. 48 frames
[Silent sequential shooting L 18fps] RAW: Max. 77 frames, JPEG (LN): Max. 105 frames
*When using the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO and the Toshiba SDXU-B032G memory card with standard card setting in slot 1.

Also, I've read conflicting reports about how the touchscreen operates. One review said that it allows gestures like swiping to view images in playback, operating as a modern touchscreen "should." Another review said that it is lacking in these operational features. Can you confirm either way?

Yes, I believe you are right. Our cameras were pre-configured for JPEG only, though, but JPEG and RAW for other configurations. It was a bit confusing in the short time available to us!

I have corrected this now - you can save RAW files at 60fps! Sorry for any confusion!
