Will Olympus finally take video seriously w/ EM-1?
11 months ago

Lost amid a lot of the EM-1 excitement is the mic input on the left upper corner:

At last, this seems like Olympus throwing video shooters a bone. Sure, the SEMA-1 was usable, but how are you supposed to use a VideoMic when the hot shoe is already taken up?

Am I reading too much into that mic input or do you think I'm right in assuming that it will mean that Olympus is taking video more seriously w/ the EM-1?

Also, this changes my plans a bit. My plan was to get the EP-5 w/ a 17mm for now and then wait for GH3 or G6's successor to see if Panasonic can make a camera w/ IBIS and a mic input. But now it seems like I might want a GX7 w/ a Pana-Leica and then just buy the EM-1 w/ the zoom lens when it comes out. Choices.
