    I'd like to hear about camera settings that were used to produce any OCC jpegs that are posted, especially outdoor photos. I'm finding it harder to figure out settings that produce great looking OCC jpegs with the E-M5 vs my E-PL1. The default levels of saturation and contrast seem to be higher with the E-M5, so I need to figure out how to modify them without adversely affecting other aspects of the pictures.

    The E-M5 has a new feature apparently called "tone curve adjustment". Adjustments are made via pressing the Fn2 button and then rotating the main and sub dials. I havn't played with that adjustment yet and shall try it today.

    Most image editing programs that I've used have this as well (PS, LR, GIMP), a common way to add punch to your contrast is to push the curve up to the right of the center point and push it down to the left of center. I apply that in PS to many of my DSLR shots, unless I'm using a lens that is heavy on contrast already like a CZ.
