Just a couple of landscape captures with the E-M5. I took these just after getting the camera, on my first test-shoot with it in the field. At the time, “test shoot” was probably a bit of a generous description, since most of it was me walking around the park with it. As adventurous as I got was to climb a slag heap and check out the view.

But despite my vanilla outings, it was a good chance to start getting a feel for the 14-42mm lens. Due to the initial inability to process RAW files with ACR, I was forced to stick with the JPGs. But now that Lightroom 4.1 RC 2 is out in beta, it’s possible to work with RAWs there, and I was finally able to really work with the files and tweak them to look their best.

These are not straight from camera – I’ve processed them, and both have a VSCO Film emulation applied to them, plus additional RAW and PS adjustments, including sharpening. But still, I think this shows just how good the E-M5’s images are, and how well they respond to processing.

More to come!
