  • HELP! Best Settings for E-520

    I have been taking test shots with my E-520 and am impressed with the color rendition and sharpness of the 14-42 and 40-150 3.5 lenses.

    From what I have read, most people suggest turning the Noise Filter to Low, and Sharpness to +1.

    My next question is what setting should be made to SAT?

    If I adjust NF to low, Sharpness to +1, and make an adjustment based on recommendation to SAT, am I basically all set for out of the box JPEGS?

    I had the E-510 (my first 4/3 body) some years ago..and i used to set Noise filter to off and sharpness to 0..
    The saturation level needed some help later on in the computer.

      It really is all down to personal choice.

      I have model moan that the images are too sharp and it shows all their imperfections. That's even when using "Kit Lenses" when I use the 50mm f/2.0 they are super sharp and often have to be "softened" for portraits.

      There is no single "Best" setting. It's adjustable for the subject being photographed.

      Keep smiling, it gets folk wondering what you've been up to
