    I know RAW+JPEG is probably ideal, but I like shooting JPEG for everyday stuff so I don't have to process the RAW images, which can take a while.

    Are there any recommended settings (color, sharpness, contrast etc.) to get good out of camera JPEGs with the E-PM2?

    Thanks!

    I like shooting natural, +2 sharpening and +2 contrast. And I adjust shadow gradation depending on what I'm shooting, though I'm usually on auto gradation in contrasty lighting.

    Do you reduce the NR?

    Thanks

    First thing I changed on my E-M10 was Noise Filter - Off

    Do a few before and after shots at ISO 1600/3200 to see if you prefer the results.
