    I just saw that the E-M1 has Hand-Held Starlight Scene Mode. Can we see some examples please?

    Just some quick snaps while taking my daughter outside for a quick stroll at night, it was getting very dark at the time I took these.

    I'll take some pictures during the afternoon tomorrow.

    Testing the HDR/bracketing capability of it. All straight OOC JPEG's, all NR turned off. Still have to mess around with the settings to see if I should turn on some NR. No tripod, all hand held.

    My conclusion is that for a scene like this, no in camera HDR is going to replace using software. Especially using HDR2, because it's combining multiple exposures in camera, handholding is extremely difficult.

    1. Standard Exposure
    2. HDR1 Setting
    3. HDR2 Setting
    4. 5 Exposure bracket +- 2EV (Tone mapped in Photomatix, simple import, processed using standard Enhanced preset, no other PP, so a 15 second HDR)
    5. 7 Exposure bracket +- 2EV
    6. 5 Exposure bracket +- 3EV
    7. Panasonic Leica 25 f/1.4 @ 1.4, lower light, ISO 640, bokeh test.

    On FM is where I first read someone mentioning that the camera came in yesterday or the day before.

    Those were all with the Panasonic Leica 25, outside of the first one which was with the Zuiko 35 macro. The 12-40 isn't available yet.

    I tried an E-M1 in-store and disliked the hybrid C-AF in comparison to the Nikon 1. Not sure it's improved as I was using a pre-production firmware body.

    Hopefully someone with the E-M1 + MMF-3 and Zuiko 14-54II lens can post some pics.

    Fast Response

    The responsiveness of the shutter button is fast. I barely detected that something was happening and my finger instinctively hit the button. Mommy was trying to avoid this from happening.

    This was taken in portrait and cropped landscaped. So it's a heavy crop.
