    Any recommendations for settings that will yield the best jpegs on OMD?

    Currently I think these work pretty well:

    Noise Filter LOW
    Noise Reduct AUTO
    White Balance AUTO
    Keep Warm Color OFF

    Sharpness -1
    Picture Mode VIVID

    Thoughts, suggestions?

    Under what shooting conditions?

    Outdoors in sunshine I used 5300 Kelvin (not AWB),
    Indoors I use AWB

    As with everything in photography there are no right settings...there are only settings YOU like!

    Also you may change the settings depending on the mood you want for a particular shoot.

    Of course you can take the extra step of shooting in RAW and then you can change the settings as much as you want after the fact.

    Best JPG? Shoot RAW and post process.

    Oh, come on.

    The OP obviously wants advice on the best settings for in-camera JPGs.

    I have been happy with settings like yours except: I find the saturation a bit too much, unnatural for the "natural" and "portrait" so I lower them to -1. I am pleased w/AWB in most situations, and surprisingly, in fluorescent light.

    The whole idea with having so many settings is so you can adjust them to the way you like, not the way the manufacturer thins it should be. Some people have osted "best" settings online, but I've ignred those posts...when I've looked at their settings I know they're not right for me.
