    I used the E-M5's RC feature to fire one Olympus FL 50R off camera (in a softbox.) Pana leica 25 f1.4 and the E-m5
    I was impressed with the way the camera handled the skin tones. I didn't have to mess with the color in post processing like I often did with my various Canon DSLRs.

    Jane, excellent work, very good lighting. Looks like that new Oly sensor renders colors really well!

    Yes, very nice! I don't have a clue about this type of photography but I know when it works, and this works...

    :2thumbs: Superb shot, Jane! What softbox did you use?

    While I've not produced anything as nice as this, I've been shooting my E-M5 in RAW/JPG and haven't needed to mess with RAW processing at all. The E-M5's JPGs are just fine for almost anything I need.

    But that's only two weeks worth of "playing." When I get serious with some macro work, it may be a different story. Love the way this camera produces!
