TheNextWeb reviewed the Olympus AIR A01 Micro Four Thirds camera.
When Olympus launched the A01, the first question on my mind was “who would actually want this?
The more I used it though, the more it made sense; the A01 strikes a balance of convenience and image quality that neither my phone nor camera have. It won’t be the ideal camera for everyone, but the possible uses are plenty. Whether you just want something better than your phone’s camera, are looking a small travel cam or already own compatible lenses, the Air A01 is a fun little contender.
So, as happens so often, I think something will work in one way and it ends up working well in another. And finally I would suggest that if the Air is of interest to you, it may well help to think of it as a serious camera, rather than some kind of smartphone accessory. Certainly that’s the mistake I made and I’m happy to say that my preconceptions have been proved to be misguided. Happy because I’m getting a lot more than I thought I was. And the Panasonic GX8 has, somewhat surprisingly, just got some serious competition for the Soundimageplus camera of the year. And who would have thought that?
OM-D EM10 Mark 2 Feature Overview – Improvements and New Features
We have new E-M10II reviews to report today:
The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II is an excellent mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, noticeably improving over the E-M10 (Mark I), as well as offering a great entry into the OM-D range. The E-M10 Mark II would also make a very good upgrade path for people with the original Olympus OM-D E-M5, with a larger EVF, built in Wi-Fi, and additional shooting features, albeit without the weather-sealing, and for that you would need to upgrade to the more expensive E-M5 Mark II.
The OM-D EM10 Mark 2 is an example of Olympus brining “evolution and revolution” to the table yet again. Having had a good amount of hands on time with the new camera, I think it is safe to say that I am rather smitten and that I will be keeping it with me as my “walk around” camera for the foreseeable future. If you are looking for a small camera to travel with that doesn’t compromise on image quality and has a few creative tricks up it’s sleeve the EM10 Mark 2 is definitely worth checking out.
