  1. That background music made this sound so depressingly beautiful, weird how this was only a camera review πŸ˜› Say…could anyone tell me what the song's called?

  2. Any omd em5 mark 1 users here? Hows the battery life? Almost majority says that the oly battery can just deliver 200-300 shots (high settings). Is it true?

  3. I just purchased an OMD EM-5 used, like new condition, it is a solidly built camera. Some people will always have little issues it makes them feel important. Someone once asked W Eugene Smith the great Life magazine photographer, " what's the best camera?" Smith answered " the one you have with you". Shut up, and just get out there, and shoot.

  4. Olympus let my school borrow this camera for 2 weeks. I'd have to say, I did not expect such a quality from a mirror less tiny camera. (I own Canon dslr) its amazing.

  5. By coincidence, you stopped off in that little restaurant and some guy was playing with his Canon EOS 5D πŸ™‚ I liked seeing the guy in the street with the old 8×10 Burke and James; a cheapskate's view camera that will not be obsolete until they stop producing film. The best thing about Micro 4/3rds is what made 35mm the dominant format in the 50s-60s and since: it's small, yet it does a good enough job. DSLRs are mostly too big to carry around (ask that guy with the EOS), they're getting as big as the roll film cameras that everyone put down when they switched to 135. Don't count that OM-D out yet: it's not DSLRs that are it's competition, it's the smartphones that casual shooters and tourists prefer over cameras.

  6. OM-D E-M5 takes amazing pictures. the lens selection is huge in micro 4/3. with the 2 control dials on the right it is truly a pleasure to shoot. and when it decides to rain you don't have to make a mad dash to the car. you can learn the settings in a day or two and it will transform itself into an old friend.

  7. So is the E-P3 the same as this camera, or should I say, it has close to the same features…Im looking at the E-M10 versus the E-P3…since the E-P3 will cost me 60$
