I want to tell my readers that I purchased the new Olympus m4/3rd camera. The Olympus OMD EM5 Mark II (yes it is the full name !) is my third Micro 4/3rd camera. I also own an EM-1 (which is in the repair shop for some “dust on the sensor issue” and a malfunctioning rear dial) as well as the original EM-5.
For me the improved stabilization and the articulated screen were my main reasons to get this new camera but most reviewers are also thrilled by the new high resolution mode. Despite the limitations ( only tripod shots on absolutely still subjects) it is a very innovating feature. So, before the full test, I wanted to share today an example of such subjects at the normal 16Mp and the 40MP mode for you to compare.
Here is the entire image area in low resolution :
Images were shot on my brand new 1.8/25mm a very good lens which I talked about here . (example shot at F5.6)
Now the crop section First the normal 16MP mode :
Now the high res crop in jpeg :
Unfortunately , the resolution of the web does not allow to take the full measure of the additional resolution but it is there. I have yet how to figure how to generate and process RAW files in this mode.
Stay tuned for more on that new camera…
