E-P1 : MERCEDES UBER ALLES

Posted: July 17, 2010 in Uncategorized

MERCEDES-BENZ

Being well-and-truly a Mercedes aficianado, I’m just posting here an image here that I really liked …and happened to capture it with my trusty Olympus E-P1 one evening in golden light. The process for this one :

  • Jpeg into Nikon Capture NX …adjust levels,contrast,sharpening as required
  • Into PS for removal of some small encroaching & unwanted detail
  • Into DxO FilmPack for simulation of Polaroid Polachrome colour positive film (which intentionally calmed down the accurately deep ‘golden’ look to the flagpoles, which was too warm for the feel that I wanted to achieve)

So …very straightforward, didn’t even need to process a RAW file (often don’t with the E-P1’s stunning jpeg qualityand colour accuracy), and always assured of great output from the Olympus.

Incidentally, the E-P1 is currently on sale in the UK for around £369 (that’s including the great M.Zuiko 14-42 lens) …stunning value in anyone’s book, and only about £40 above the current Amazon price on an LX3 ! I gather there’s even a discount code at present for Curry’s, to take that down to £339.

As usual,. many more new E-P1 images at   http://nickbland.zenfolio.com, and much more E-P1 info at http://1001noisycameras.com
