Panasonic GM1 tested at Dpreview.

Dpreview published their full GM1 review. The camera earned the Gold Award:

The GM1 offers much of the features and image quality of its Lumix GX7 sibling in a much smaller, lighter package. A few concessions have been made to reduce the size so drastically, namely a lower-capacity battery, but it’s an excellent option for casual shooting.

In US at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto.
In Europe at Amazon Germany, Wex Germany, Amazon UK, Fotohanskeuzekamp, Cyberphoto Sweden and Wex UK.

Finally! Olympus forecast says they will return to profit thanks to increased camera sales!


Yesterday I told you how surprised I was to see that the E-M1 seems to sell way better than the A7-A7r cameras according to Amazon mirrorless ranking (Click here). Well for once Amazon was apparently telling us the truth!

Today Bloomberg reports that” Olympus forecast a return to profit for its camera unit next fiscal year as sales of mirrorless models increase.“. Olympus CEO confirmed that camera sales will rise up to 1 million units til April (with 5% market share). And this means that after many years Olympus will make the first profit in the camera business!

Olympus CEO also said that the sales increase happens thanks to their high end mirrorless cameras. And it’s an easy guess that he meant the E-M5 and E-M1 cameras :)

Reminder: Gariz realized their sexy half leather cases for the new Olympus E-M1 You can have it on eBay in Black (Click here) or Brown (Click here).
