Olympus Saves The Day...

It was a dreary evening. Rain clouds cast a dark grey light and everything looked flat and not very pretty. Luckily I had the E-30 and switched to the 'Pop-Art' filter and Viola...colors were exciting and everything looked wonderful! I did discover one aspect of the Art Filters that I didn't like at all...and that is when I raised the flash, with an Art-Filter active, you cannot control the brightness of the flash. No way to set a -1 stop exposure on the amount of flash that gets pumped out. I had another composition that I liked better, but the flash fired way too strong and ruined the shot. This one "just happened" to balance out correctly because of the amout of ambient light, not because I was in full control. I understand the later body, the EP-2 will allow full access to the control panel settings while an Art Filter is active and that is what I needed this evening.

Hi have you tried shooting in raw setting the flash power out put, then going into olympus 2 and switching on the art filter their.

Excellent job with this one though, not tried the art filters myself yet.

Hello Dave...

I did realize, later on, that that would have been the way around the delimma I came across in the field.

Appreciate the tip...
