Thank you. It's a standard gray card here today, and will be that way
for most of the week.

Generally speaking, the E-3 does a pretty good job of keeping the blue
skies from getting too cyan colored, but for the most part, it does do
a good job of staying with Olympus' colors. The biggest difference I
see between the E-3 and the Kodak-CCD sensor cameras from that era is
that the CCD cameras see colors that don't exist, or they turn the
skies too cyan. Effectively, the wavelength shift of blue skies is
about 10-15 nanometers towards the green as compared to other cameras.
It's pretty easy to dial that back in Lightroom, but it's definitely
there. This shift is one reason why skintones are so nice, and the
colors are so rich.

As to my comment about finding colors that don't exist, that's
actually something I've battled quite a bit with my cameras. Both the
Panasonic GX85 and the Sony A7ii have an uncanny trait of turning
winter scenics into monochrome images. But the E-1, E-300, E-400 and
sometimes the E-3 find colors that even my mind doesn't remember
seeing. That said, the Panasonic does monochrome REALLY WELL!!!! The
E-3 is quite good too. The Sony is exceptional, once I dial in a lot
of gamma adjustment.

I'm able to see that Olympus worked hard at preserving as much of the
E-1's CCD traits as much as possible in the E-3. That camera is
growing on me and seems to do better with Alaska scenics than most
cameras in most lighting.

Thank you. Happy new year to you too.
