Frank:Here’s a Shawn Blanc podcast episode where he talks about moving from taking iPhone pictures to an E-PL5, and now to an E-M10. The m43 stuff starts at about 7 minutes:

Joe:I just want to highlight a fashion editorial that was recently published in print for Elegant Magazine February issue. I shot them with the Olympus E-M1, Panasonic 12-35mm, and the Olympus 45mm. Hope you guys like them! You can see more of my fashion and commercial work where are mostly shot with micro 4/3 camera (GH2 and GH3):

Robert:A music video for my brother’s band, The World Record. Includes one hex bug, one cat and a butler. Shot with the Panasonic GX7 and SLR Magic HyperPrime Cine 12mm T1.6. I previously had the original version of this lens and traded it in for the new version which was released recently. It does not disappoint. Better control over the flare and better handling. It’s a wonderful lens to shoot video with. In this video the close focus ability worked very well.

Vincent:not a rumor. Just a video I shot on my GH3. Thought it demonstrates how well the 1080/60p feature works.

Ryan: I recently flew to Thailand with my girlfriend. We had two GH3’s and an Edelkrone slider. Everything flew by very quickly while we were there and getting good footage meant being ready for the shot in the matter of seconds. The GH3’s really stepped up in terms of size and image quality. We shot mostly on the Panasonic 12-35 2.8 and Olympus 75 1.8, which covered a good amount of range (especially with ex-teleconversion) I hope you can post this up to your next round-up.

Vincent:I just finished a short promo video project for the school where I teach, which I made with the GX7 along with the Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 and the Olympus 17mm f1.8.
