Fall colors with the Grandad of micro-Four-Thirds

    Before there was Micro-Four-Thirds, there was the Four-Thirds semi-open system with Olympus and Kodak as originating members.

    The camera that started things off was the Olympus E-1, if I'm not mistaken. What I'm certain of is the superb camera that it is to this day.

    The colors and image character this camera captures are simply beautiful. Working with the files in post (should they need it at all) is a dream. Ignore the number of megapixels a camera has. Pay attention to the quality of those megapixels, their willingness to produce compelling images.

    As the fall colors began in earnest here, I thought of the E-1 and what it captured in the past for me. Remembering that I put aside the X-E1 and the micro-four-thirds cameras, and got the E-1 ready for some serious fun. Here are some results so far.

    I also have an E-1 (my third, after acquiring and eventually selling the first two). I can attest to the great files it produces when using ISO 100. like buttah...

    Love the color on those leaves of the 2nd one. However for my own personal taste I tend to life the shadow more in Lightroom after the fact. Otherwise they are sweet....

    This reminds me of my own E-1 shots:
