Photographyblog reviews and marks the E-M10 as “essential”

Share

The Olympus E-M10 is collecting great feedbacks every week! First Dpreview said it’s “truly an impressive camera” than DxO said it’s a “mini marvel” and now the camera earned an “Essential!” mark at Photographyblog (Click here):

Commendably the E-M10 is as solidly-built and stunningly designed as its more expensive brothers – the only real concession to price is the lack of weather-sealing, something that many users at this level won’t miss anyway, especially as the camera’s buttons are subsequently a little easier to press. The Olympus OM-D E-M10 is cheaper than the E-M5/E-M1 and most of its similarly-specified rivals too, making it a real bargain that importantly makes very few concessions to hit that very tempting price-point. Essential!

Full Frame OMD is the 43rumors readers most wanted camera for the year 2014!

Share

I was very surprised to see the results of the 43rumors readers dream camera for the year 2014 (poll results here). Of the 7203 unique 43rumors voters 26% (1,858 Voters) are hoping to see a Full Frame OMD in 2014. This wishful camera beats all the rest (including the new GH4 and E-M10 cameras).

I am pretty sure such a camera COULD be realized now that Sony and Olympus have a close partnership. Imagine a camera with those features:

– 36 MP Sony sensor with no AA filter
– 4 Mio dot OLED EVF (Sony is rumored to use this in 2014 cameras)
– Olympus JPEG engine (which is better than the Sony)
– 5 axis on sensor stabilization (missing on Sony A7-A7r)
– E-mount
– freeze proof body (missing on Sony A7-A7r)
– dual SD card slot (missing on Sony A7-A7r)
– Olympus Zuiko primes coming along the camera
– OMD E-M1 alike button layout

What do you think of the Full Frame OMD?

This is how Panasonics imagines the future (4K Wearable Camera)

Share

Just in case you missed it. The one camera you see on top has just been announced by Panasonic. They think devices like that are the present and future of wearable camera devices. And just like the GH4 it records 4K (obviously not with the same video quality).

Here is a video that shows you what you can do with that camera. Cool…but will it sell?
