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.

Steve Huff’ initial review of a full on production Sony NEX-7 and Zeiss 24 1.8 lens with the final firmware – hand delivered this to Steve’s home on October 11th 2011, one month before retail release of the camera. This is Steve’s “First Look” video showing you the camera, the lens and some video samples to test for the 5n “click”, which is absent in the 7. >>CLICK HERE<< for additional reviews of the NEX 7 and other SONY Mirrorless camera systems.
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]
Nate “Blunty” Burr (aka Blunty3000) on The new Pentax Q – an unusual beastie of a camera. Pentax bucked current conventions and trends, and relied on their long and illustrious history and experience in building cameras to come up with the smallest, lightest interchangeable-lens system camera currently available…. and it’s incredible fun! Check out the quality of the stills and FULL HD VIDEO (1080p) that this little bugger kicks out (for a very low price)! Here’s the Pentaz Q (in Black or White) and a few of lenses for this awesome little camera:
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]
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]
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.
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.
The Panasonic GF series has taken an interesting change of direction ever since the brilliant GF1 was first announced. With the GF2 and GF3 losing admirers of the range thanks to them losing key features. But now the GX1 is here and it’s promising to be the successor to the GF1. Is it any good though? The GX1 is a great camera, period… but it’s especially great for someone who’s looking to capture high quality photos and video, but pack that ability into a body that’s easy to carry around – and the GX1 delivers on all counts.
