Just wondering if any of you E-10 users out there have any suggestions on setting the "sharpness" on the camera. Mine is still set up as it came from the factory, and it seems I have to do quite a bit of sharpening in photoshop to make the images look right.

Murray, I use the E-10 as backup for the D-100, this was shot with the E-10 all settings normal, sharpness hard/sharp. On head shots I used to set sharpness at normal. Stay well..............

Hey Murray,

I have found that the best way to set my E-10 is to make sure the ISO is set to 160 this seems to really sharpen up things no matter what shutter speed or f-stop. the SHQ is realy enough unless you want to print it more than 8x10. When I shoot in studio with Studio lighting I set ISO to 80 and TIFF.

One thing I have noticed also is the E-10 dose not do real well in low light, So I baught the FL-40 flash and it helps a whole lot.

Images shot at sunset, Olympus E-10 ISO 160, 125th sec 5.6 F-stop before I had the FL-40, used a Vivitar 283 on manual setting with difuser

Murray,

Make sure that your image compression is set to its lowest setting. When you go into the Menu function to set your Image type (TIFF, HQ, SHQ, etc.), your image compression setting should be 1/2.7 if shooting .jpg or 1/1 if shooting TIFF.

Regardless of your Sharpness selection, if you're shooting at a "standard" image resolution (1/8), your image will come out looking soft due to the camera compressing the image as it writes it to your storage card.

Try shooting in TIFF mode, at max resolution, with the compression setting at 1/1....HUGE difference!!

Also, keep in mind that when resizing your images, the resampling function in ALL software packages will in fact delete information out of the binary image data in order to adjust to a smaller image size. The result? Less sharpness. Adding a touch of sharpness to your image after resizing it should bring it back and really make it pop.

~Rich~

J, is this the way the image of Kelly looked right out of the E-10 or did you do anything else to sharpen in photoshop or such? Thanks so much for your help.

Thanks Brian,
Your info was quite helpful. I've had the E-10 for over a year now, and still haven't found the time to explore all its traits. Most folks have told me to leave the ISO at 80 but I think I'll give 160 a try. Also, I purchased the FL-40 flash. Any tips on how to use it? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks again for your help!

Out of the box, no extra sharpness. When I use the normal setting, I have to PS the sharpnes about +30. ISO 80, SHQ, I make A3 size prints for galleries.
