When the Olympus Pen F was launched, many photography enthusiast’s criticized Olympus for assigning the front dial on the Olympus Pen F for their popular art filters, color creator, and the new color and monochrome modes.

The front creative dial is JPEG centric and offers many interesting options which can also be precisely customized up to individual taste and preference to create a specific look.
The most interesting features come from the color profile and monochrome profile modes which emulate slide film look and nice high contrast monochrome look something similar to popular black and white film Tri X.
In case you are a JPEG shooter or in general like the JPEG out put of Olympus cameras you will enjoy what the creative dial and the various modes offer. The color mode renders lovely images with deep, rich, vibrant and contrasty colors which are reminiscent of slide film. The mono modes also opens up options for getting creative and creating some really cool monochrome images.
I received many messages on Facebook and emails from Olympus Pen F enthusiast’s and potential Olympus Pen F buyer’s wanting to know and see how the images look when these two modes are used.
I will make a separate blog post and in detail explain the various modes on the creative dial in coming days. For now I’m posting some pictures I shot with the Olympus Pen F using the color and monochrome modes.
1) All images posted in this blog post were shot as JPEG’s and then transferred via Wi-Fi to my phone and slightly cropped/aligned in Snapseed for Android.
2) All images were shot in color and mono mode only and are SOOC images.
Thanks and enjoy the pictures.
