Steve Huff check’s out the Olympus E-P3 digital PEN and the new “pro” 12mm f/2 lens. This is Steve’s 1st look video after snapping his first few shots… The E-P3 is a “Micro Four Thirds” camera, which means that it is an interchangeable lens camera in the M43 format. One of the strengths M43 cameras is that there is are a TON of lenses available that you can use, from Olympus, Panasonic and other 3rd party manufactures, such as Voightlander Nokton – and many of these lenses are HIGH QUALITY! There are also numerous adapters available that will allow you [More]
A form factor comparison of the Fuji FinePix X100 vs Olympus PEN EP-3 versus Sony NEX C3 digital camera. A little additional info: All these cameras will take GREAT PHOTOS, with a slight (VERY slight) advantage possibly going to the SONY, who are renowned for their sensor quality. In video applications, however, that same sensor becomes SONY’s downfall, as they are notorious for overheating issues. You can still take HD quality video with the SONY, but expect to only get a few minutes (5-15 typically, depending on temperature conditions) at a time. All of these cameras also have a 29 [More]
Kai and the gang from DigitalRevTV take a look at the Olympus E-P3; the first “pro” body in Olympus’ line-up. What’s new in this successor to the E-P1/E-P2? Is it enough for Olympus to keep at the forefront of the mirrorless camera world? Watch for the E-P5, coming soon!
ALL Handheld video! Steve Huff with a sampling of video quality from the Olympus OM-D camera. Nothing artistic but most of this is in low light areas. Some at ISO 1600. Lenses used were the 12mm f/2 and 45mm f/1.8. The 5-Axis IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) is AMAZING and worked so well. The good news? No shake, no wobbling and no Jello effect! At the end, Steve does a side by side comparison with video from the Fuji X-Pro 1, and the Olympus easily overtook the Fuji in regards to Video.
In this video, the gang from DigitalRevTV look at the low light performance of the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and compare it to two other latest mirrorless cameras: the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Sony NEX-7. How do they perform with autofocus in low light and what is the EVF like? We also compare the noise performance of each camera.

Does the new OM-D E-M5 manage to produce a GH2 style virtuoso performance in video mode? There are some question marks over that – but as a stills camera it stands up very well against some very tough competition – the 5D Mark III, Fuji X Pro 1 and Sony NEX 7. Since a live view mode is essentially the same as a video mode, mirrorless cameras with their EVFs and LCDs in place of an optical viewfinder have had a head start on DSLRs when it comes to video. Many people have high hopes for the E-M5 and in [More]
Check out this video footage shot entirely with the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5, with no color-correction whatsoever. The colors appear sharp and clear, whether in bright daylight or at night, Panny’s “Light Speed” auto-focus to locks right on, and the videographer gets some great stop motion and slo-motion effects. Be sure to notice the high quality sound captured by the camera’s on board stereo mics. We are super impressed with this camera. It’s no wonder Panasonic calls it the “GH 2.5” >>CLICK HERE

Amy Davies gives a brief preview of what to expect from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic, Olympus, Fuji and Samsung at Photokina 2012 in Germany.
The 2012 London Olympic Games were captured (in images and video) by Getty photographer Dean Mouharopoulous, who shot exclusively with the Panasonic DMC-G5 camera. In this video, Dean and Panasonic experts talk about using the G5 in different situations and finding the right lens to get the best shot. From Mirrorless Central: We love the Panny Lenses discussed in the video, and there are a lot of other phenomenal lenses that are compatible with the M43 format. In fact, if you’re going the interchangeable lens route, micro four thirds is a great option as there are more lenses available in [More]
The 2012 London Olympic Games were captured (in images and video) by Getty photographer Dean Mouharopoulous, who shot exclusively with the Panasonic DMC-G5 camera. In this video, individual questions are answered by Panasonic experts (including Dean) during a live talk with online users. From Mirrorless Central:  We love the 12-35 mm lens that Dean recommends in the video.  Another great, and more cost friendly, option is the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 lens, which is compatible with all M43 cameras, including the Pannys (another reason why we love the micro 4/3 format). Unless you’re completely strapped financially, we also recommend that you [More]

Mike and Nick from Unique Photo do some night shooting to measure the Canon G1X, Panasonic GX1 and the Olympus OMD EM5 in a head to head to head match up. From Mirrorless Central: Bottom Line – The OMD EM5 and the Panasonic GX1 are both great cameras, they’re two of our favorites from the last year or so and you can’t go wrong with either. We haven’t personally tested the Canon, but it looks like a decent offering for those who aren’t in to interchangeable lenses. Our conclusion: The OMD is clearly the “Mercedes” of the bunch, and it [More]
A short film shot with the new Olympus OMD EM-5. Took a in a shopping mall to shoot. Shot it with Monotone settings straight out of camera.
Another review of the Olympus OM-D EM-5, hands down one of the best mirrorless cameras – check that – one of the best cameras PERIOD, to come out in the last several years. Pros and enthusiasts alike love this camera for it’s stunning Image Quality, 5 point image stabilization, lightining fast autofocus and retro form factor. If you’re interested in the OMD, we also recommend that you pick up the optional battery grip. It makes the camera easier to hold, and of course, adds to the battery life.

In the kickoff of season 3, Kai and Lok from DigitalRevTV compare an entry level DSLR – the Nikon D3100 – with a mirrorless camera – the E-P3 to see if there is still a point of having a DSLR. It looks like the small Olympus PEN E-P3 holds up pretty well against the Nikon, even surpassing it in some categories, and with recent advances in sensor technology, we’d bet that new Olympus cameras, like the new PEN Lite (E-PL5) and PEN Mini (E-PM2), that are equipped with the same sensor as the flagship OM-D E-M5 would do even better.
