Took this shot with my OM-D EM-5  and imported into Olympus Viewer then exported a 16 bit Tiff to Lightroom. Ok why did I do this the first batch of photos I took and posted I just exported JPEGs from OV3 and found they where great straight out of the camera. Now my settings where all the neutral and standard setting but come to find out OV3 or Olympus Viewer Raw editing software does basic corrections as part of their JPEG engine(at least that is what the research I did on the internet says). So I decided to import a TIFF file to Lightroom and then do some fine tuning of the image.

 

First the photo I know the Pyramid is extremely blown but even to the naked eye it is blown they say at certain times of the day its reflection can be seen by the international space station this is a mirrored glass building that can really reflect the sun . Now the OV3 version is fairly nice with no editing done except what ever is done in the camera but it has a very basic look no real faults but nothing that stands out. All my settings where Neutral and Standard and then I exported a 16 bit TIFF(wow it was a 90mb file, again wow). Then I went to work in LR and really did not do much some shadow and highlight corrections and I did some sharpening and a bit lens correction. I also did bump the saturation and used a bit of clarity my only regret is I forgot about the new dehaze function maybe later. I have been told I could have just exported a full res JPEG to LR and gotten the same results with less space taken up but I will defer to you guys which is better.

 

In the end I was super pleased with the results not that I would do this all the time but it is an option I also imported the ORF file directly into light room it took a lot more work to get the same look and I mean a lot more effort.

 

Ok the first one is the OV3 JPEG the second is the TIFF imported to LR then exported as a JPEG. I know this is no new news but for me it was interesting and fun to try something different.

Jim, I have another idea... Camera  (RAW) > DXO OpticsPro 10 (TIFF) > LR

 

DXO OpticsPro10: There is a trial version if you don't have it. Link: www.dxo.com/us/photography/download

 

Could be interesting...

I have never used DXO the only reason I even tried the OV3 was the fact that all the in camera settings can be baked into the tiff. What would DXO bring vs just directly importing to LR?

Jim, DXO provides a wide range of choices...

 

My workflow is: Camera (NEF-14bit) > DXO OpticsPro 10 (JPEG) > Photoshop Elements 13

 

I can recommend the DXO programme as it has "specific" modules that it can automatically download subject to the camera and lens combinations being used.

Just wondering, can lightroom read the raw from from the OMD?
