Olympus E-PL1

I have been using my new Olympus E-PL1 camera and playing about with the various Art Filters, and must say I am very impressed at what this little camera produces.

I especially like the Gritty B&W filter best.

The quality of the Raw files it produces with the 14-42mm lens is excellent. It has the added bonus of being able to use various other manufacturers lenses with the appropriate adapter.

I can’t wait to try out some of my Nikon primes. I thoroughly recommend this camera especially at the price it is at the moment £279 here in the UK.

This is an example of what the Raw file produces…….

A shot from tonight’s match. We don’t have floodlights up here in Pontycymer so this was shot at 5000 iso at f2.8 on a Nikon D7000.

With a little bit of noise reduction it holds up pretty well.

Taken at Saturday’s game a very bright sunny day here in the South Wales valleys

which made taking action shots a breeze in this very one sided game where Pontycymer beat local rivals Blaengarw 131 – 13.
