A single reviewer says that the E-M1 is the cat's meow in video and now the Oly fanboys are jumping all over this...LOL.

It's not a single reviewer, it's Andrew Reid, the filmmaker who writes "the Panasonic GH3 shooting guide" and the GH2 before it. What is sure is that he is not a fanboy. But you? you should ask this question for yourself?

The E-M1 is a great stills camera, but when it comes to video, it can't compete with the latest Pany cameras...GH3, G6 and GX7. Check out the below video I recently shot with the GX7.


The E-M1 can't come close to producing such a clean and vivid video as above, especially in indoor environments. How about a little indoor 5-on-5 football shot with the GX7, but with horrible lighting conditions?


The E-M1 can't perform up to par with the latest Pany cameras in the above lighting conditions. End of story.

Fanboy talk again...

Like Andrew Reid, I think that the GH2/GH3 are the best mirorrless cameras for video. I shoot with a hacked GH2. But like him, I'm not a fanboy and I appreciate the fact that video on the E-M1 is of good quality.
