OK I'm sure plenty of you are aware of this and already use OV2 but just bear with me. Since buying my EM5, I've been struggling with RAW. I've always used RAW on my Canon DSLRs and I have tried time and time again to make friends with the RAW files from the EM5 but to no avail. I just couldn't seem to get Lightroom 3 to make them look just like I wanted it to. As a result I've gone back and forth between RAW and JPG, switching to JPG when RAW gets frustrating enough then back to RAW when I get tired of not having the level of control that I am used to, and round and round we go. So tonight I sit down to process some photos that I took a couple of days ago at my son's awards day at school. Now the venue for this event is the school cafeteria, which isn't the best light to start with. To make things worse, the stage is even darker, there is a black curtain behind the people on stage so you have to use negative EV, etc. -- it's just a nightmare and I've never gotten decent pics. But this is the first time I've been able to shoot it with my EM5. So rather than using LR3, I decide to open OV2 and just see what it will do. After a bit of fiddling with sliders, picture mode settings, etc, I am presented with beautiful, perfectly exposed and white balanced photos. These photos are far and away better than anything I've ever been able to capture with either my Canon 10D or 40D, as well as better than anything I've been able to produce from the OMD using Lightroom. Using software that actually "understands" the structure of the RAW files makes all the difference. And I don't have to mess with profiles or any of that other stuff that I've been struggling with in LR3. Now if Olympus would just work on the user interface a bit I would be a happy camper. It produces fantastic results but man is it a pain in the behind to use. I'm used to the way LR does things and the speed with which it does them so OV2 is quite a change, but it's worth it for the final product. So if you are struggling with RAW output and you haven't given it a fair shake, fire up OV2 -- you might just find your silver bullet like I did.
