I like the default settings in E-M1, These are mine fine tunings. Though I do it and change, if I want to go back it’s like a maze, go through every level and find out where it is. Here’s the cheat sheet for my most commonly used.

Prints obviously can be evaluated only by looking at the real paper, I’ll try my best to

But to my surprise the indoor images started looking much better and no blinking low exposure warning sign.
