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.
Steve Huff takes a first look at the Olympus OM-D along with the 12mm and 45mm lenses, the lenses that Steve calls “the best two lenses you can get for the M 4/3 system.”

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]

Well, they both have 1-inch imaging sensor chips inside, and they both are landmark concepts in their respective categories. Inch by inch, shot by shot. As usual for this type of vid; We STRONGLY recommend the 1080p mode & full-screen viewing (or best possible settings for whatever you’re watching on) >>CLICK HERE

Individual questions answered by Panasonic experts during a live talk with online users.
