Olympus OM-D E-M1 High ISO, Low Light Performance

By on

Olympus OM-D E-M1 micro four thirds system camera reviews and hands-on previews started to show up on the net. MirrorLessons has posted a hands-on review for the newly announced Olympus OM-D E-M1 mft camera.

The review of the OM-D E-M1 with using the M.Zuiko 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro lens covers high iso and low light performance of the camera. They have posted lots of sample images taken with different ISO levels up to 25,600.

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 mirrorless digital camera is a compact, ergonomically design camera featuring a 16.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor.


Olympus OM-D E-M1 High ISO, Low Light Performance

From the MirrorLessons conclusion:

How can these two great improvements (ISO and stabilisation) translate in a real-world situation? Well, it means that I can raise the ISO on the E-M1 more than I can on the E-M5. While with the latter I always tend to stay at a maximum of 3200 ISO, I won’t hesitate to use 6400 ISO with the E-M1. This, combined with the great increase in sharpness, makes this camera a formidable competitor….

…Since I started using the E-M5, I have noticed that I use my tripod less with the exception of special situations. Knowing that the E-M1 is even better than its already incredible predecessor allows me to feel even more comfortable with leaving my tripod at home.
