A bit of everything…

Kuban (video on top):Bit a short video I shot using the Olympus OMD EM 5 II, last weekend in London.
Simply testing out the camera’s video and HDMI clean feed, I couldn’t get that to work, but the camera performed really smoothly, all shots handheld in a run&gun style, filmed at 1920*1080 at 50fps then re-interpreted in 25fps in premier.

The Complete Guide to Olympus’ OM-D E-M5 II by Gary L. Friedman and Tony Phillips (Friedmanarchives).
7-14mm PRO lens test at DSLRmagazine.

Stephen:My 2015 Rode Reel Submission, filmed with two Olympus E-P5. My first video production, based on an interview with my 99 year old Grandpa who still lifts weights, lives independently, and holds a valid driver’s licence.

Dustin: Wish I had the lowdown on new gear, but I want to make a contribution of work. I use the GH4 for my video marketing company Idaho Studio, I was going through some of my videos created to test out lenses, I thought this one still shined. Feel free to share.
