Olympus OMD EM1 Unboxing

The embargo has lifted and I can now share this unboxing video of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 camera!! I’ve now had it for several days and can tell you THIS is the µ4/3 camera you’ve been waiting for. I spent some time with a friend who still shoots with his regular 4/3 gear and we took his lenses for a test drive in this camera and he repeatedly said,” this focuses FASTER than my E-5′s do!!” This was with the SWD 50-200mm,12-60mm, and 50mm f/2 macro.

With µ4/3 lenses it is BLAZINGLY fast to focus! I could go on and on but will save it for more videos SOON!!

    Excuse me for this, I am going to sound like a broken record here.

    - How is the focus peaking working compared to E-P5? Does it lag?

    - Since the E-M1 is of a professional build, can the control dials handle fast movements? without missing input?

    - How is the auto switch between LCD and EVF handled? Can we turn off both and only have the EVF come on with the sensor? To save battery that is. E-P5 can’t do this. It keeps either LCD or EVF on at all times.

    Other than that it looks like a killer stills camera! Money saving starts… NOW!
