    What is Gain Control in EXIF (Adobe Bridge)?

    It is driving me mad !!!! I can't find it anywhere...

    I've done 1000 photos with my E-PL1 and I always have Gain Control 2.
    I've checked many photos (on this forum and elsewhere) and others have Gain Control 0 or 1.


    Please help and explain

    Now this is just great. It's Friday night and now we both have to sweat this.....
    Don't worry...we'll get an answer...Brian will chime in soon or Ray, or Bill or....someone....

    In the meantime....I'm shooter.....for me gain is when I crank my amp up and get that real bluezy sound from my Strat or Tele....

    I'll be back in a spell and I'll make sure you get an answer cause now I need it also....

    Is gain control in the EXIF another term for gradation?

    Try setting Gradation to Normal / Auto and see what you get for Gain Control?

    Cheers

    HI, i'm under the impression "gain control" in digital camera's is the ability to set "ISO value". As the ISO setting is upped in number value you are increasing the gain setting. I do not have an EPL-1 so it is possible Olympus have changed identifying this setting and now call it "Gain Control".
    Hope this helps

    Thanks for replies

    Now we're getting somewhere

    It has something to do with ISO...

    ISO 100 ~ gain 0
    ISO 200 ~ gain 1
    above 200 ~ gain 2

    I'm still not sure what exactly does this mean...

    Interesting, I wonder what gain value you'd get for ISO 125?

    Cheers
