Will Crockett of DiscoverMirrorless.com discusses what he sees as a shift in the Pro and Enthusiast Photography World. Are DSLRs on the way out in favor of smaller and less expensive yet highly sophisticated mirrorless camera systems with BIG Image Quality and HD Video Capability? Will writes… We have been nice and busy here working on a few really inspiring consulting projects with the “new breed” of camera systems.

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!

It’s an easy to use camera that’s a great choice for those who want high quality stills AND HD Video without a lot of fussing in post production or color correction, etc.
Hands-on with the SONY NEX-VG20 vs the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2. Bottom line: The GH2 and VG20 are both great cameras. Aside from the form factor, with the GH2 taking on a traditional DSLR-like shape, and the VG-20 more of a video cam style, here are some observations. The VG-20 lacks manual color, contrast and sharpness adjustments, but it has a built-in headphone jack and full manual audio control, it is better than the unhacked GH2 in low light and the factory-set color profile is just fine. The GH2 does handle moire better — but just barely. You will see moire [More]

SONY also offers a “Handi-cam” style body with the NEX VG-20.
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.”
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.
