Max Yuryev reviews the E-M1II: Says it’s great for stills but disappointing for video


Let’s turn the world upside down and report about the E-M1II video review from Max Yuryev and the GH5 stills quality review from Imaging Resource.

Max Yuryev says that the camera is disappointing for video shooters. I am not sure all will agree here but check out the video on top to hear why he believes that.

And Imaging Resource tested the GH5 Stills Quality and concluded:

In side-by-side comparisons, the GH5 and GH4 appeared to have no noticeable change in image quality at the same sensitivities through the range. Though colors are better on the GH5, any high ISO improvement is negligible, at least in still photos.

I know both conclusion do not sound great. But keep in mind the GH5 excelles when it comes to video performance while the E-MII is clearly designed for photographers and not film makers.
