By Request: Full size from RAW Olympus OM-D E-M1 Images: By Steve Huff

Snip from the Steve Huff Article>>

Hello to all! I just arrived back home from Ireland after an 18 hour travel day, delayed flights and missed connections but hey, it was worth it just to go to the gorgeous castle and put the E-M1 to test in a beautiful environment (see my initial report HERE). The weather was not so hot on the day at the Castle which required me to up the ISO on the camera but I still feel the images are superb. I have had a few email requests for full size images, from RAW from the camera. So here you go!

Enjoy and have a great rest of the weekend! I will be back Monday morning!


LINK > Full size from RAW Olympus OM-D E-M1 Images

These will open AS A FULL SIZE JPG in Olympus Viewer 3, 1.1 and Corel AfterShot Pro

I believe LightRoom 5.2 is the only RAW converter that can open the RAW file.

And AS A FULL SIZE JPG in Photoshop CC,  ACR will need an update to open the RAW file.

Updated the OMD Camera Review Tab

A small update that will help you find all the Camera reviews.  Just a little house cleaning.

When you hover over the tab in the menu that says “OMD E-M”#” Reviews” a drop-down with the OMD model will be visible. Then, another drop-down menu will reveal all the links to that models reviews on the Web.

Also, I will now include the 1st paragraph of review on my link page, that also includes a photograph in the review.

I am now including all “OM-D” models…

The name of my blog is now “Olympus OM-D Resource Blog”

The domain is still the same:

And with this change, I would like followers, that will own the OM-D E-M1, and would like to be a collaborator , and write short articles that will help others with the operation, and use of the OM-D E-M1 in different photo situations. You will get full credit of course.

Also. anyone who would like to be a collaborator who owns an OM-D E-M5, is also welcome to write articles that will help others with the operation, and use of the OM-D E-M5 in different photo situations.

If you are interested in writing short articles about your OM-D model, please contact me though my “Contact” tab above. Please provide your email that was used when your registered with “WordPress” in the request. And provide me with your “WordPress” User ID. I will need these to authorize you with my “WordPress” account so you can have the required access to write articles.

I will get back you and make the arrangements and permissions you will need.
