a little bit of everything…(and small 20mm price drop at Amazon)


Video on top: pre and post firmware v1.5 update showing the difference that the IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) makes when using adapted, third party lenses in video mode on the Olympus OM-D E-M5. By Tyson Robichaud.

There is a small price drop on the Panaosnic 20mm pancake at Amazon (Click here).

    WOW! That IBIS is very, very good!

  • Michael

    This Gizmodo review has got to be a joke.

    • Mister_Roboto

      What non-sense are you babbling on about?

      • rombo

        This looks like they used an m43 for the first time

        “This Is Weird…

        It has face recognition. Does anyone ever use face recognition on a camera?”

        • bart

          Sometimes, yes, but never for video.

          It can be useful with somewhat longer lenses while taking pictures in hectic situations where it is easier to avoid ‘confusing compositions’ then nail focus.

          The problem is that on most cameras fr simply doesn’t work very well (including my e-p1 and g2). On the latest crop of cameras it seems to have become good enough that it can actually help (for example the e-m5, but pretty sure thats not the only one).

      Your rigth- after checking some more gizmodo reviews, i simply say the whole site is a joke (at least in Camera testing)


      the “test” of the Conon M-is just talking about features from the data sheet-without any real information


      in the test of the Canon T4i: “The manual focus on mirrorless cameras is a joke when compared to using an optical viewfinder to dial it in”

      i bet they never tried to MF with a mirrorless, and only searched for a reason why a optical viewfinder is better.

    • ozymandias

      Funny though, cause the commenters are actually not as uninformed as the reviewer.

  • Alan

    This video is weeks old. C’mon 43rumors, when I check you out I expect news to be breaking news.

    • Pavlo

      Well, it’s a rumors site, not news. You’ll see — soon GX2 rumor will be a “braking news” here :)

  • That IBIS system is THE feature the GH3’s missing
