jkokich: Forgive what may sound like a stupid question (there are those), but why is there shutter sound, at all? (Serious question, even if stupid).

because of the shuttersound

MPA1: Useless high ISO in RAW.

take a IBIS-camera and keep ISO low

Beat Traveller: Meh. I've tried to use MIT's MOOC stuff before, from the neuroscience courses, and I found it to be massively over-hyped. It's basically just the slides, lecture notes and references from each course: material that costs them nothing extra to produce because they put it up for the students anyway.

Without more detailed explanations it's useless as a learning tool. You might as well borrow a textbook from a public library.

also good

alexisgreat: Why dont manufacturers make these cameras with 1/1.8" sensors? The camera would be only slightly larger and it would have much less noise. If Fuji can make a 1000mm camera with a 1/2" sensor, surely Olympus can make a 600mm camera with a 1/1.8" sensor or even a 1/1.7" sensor. Heck, Fuji also makes a 630mm camera with a 2/3" sensor!

take a look at Stylus 1

alexisgreat: Basically give this camera the Olympus C-8080 sensor (2/3" 8 MP) or C-7070 (1/1.8" 7 MP), both CCD, I hate CMOS....... and a lens to fit either of those sensors, and we're good to go ;-) wouldn't mind the feature set of those cameras either- it's sad that cameras from 10 years ago are a lot more advanced than the ones today.

compare a photo with ISO800, this camera has 600mm!

Handling the Sensorreadout selectiv in one single shot is already implemented in HDR-Bulb in E-M10 (first time). This Technology was used even in Shaddow-Compensation bevor and will be used for more functions in the future (describt in the Patent). Even ISO-Bracketing already exist.

dark goob: WANT!!

The slow, loud focusing speed of the existing 20 is its only real drawback. I'll probably keep it and use the other one on dual GH3's to do 3D video.


Where have You red "AF is unchanged"?
AF has changed! Cause of new "in lens" instead "frontfocus" design.

On Updated: DSLR and Lens Buying Guides article (44 comments in total)
In reply to:

Airless: Consumer level DSLRs don't have any advantage over mirrorless at the same price point, they have some differences sure like optical finders but to call that an "advantage" is fanboyish to the extreme, there are just as many disadvantages with an optical finder and generally the only people who prefer optical are some of those who were already used to it before trying EVF.

NEX, EOS M, and Nikon 1 have PDAF, and they all let you use DSLR lenses with autofocus via an adapter, M4/3 has a pretty deep native lens selection too, and referring to "the option of full-frame" is irrelevant because that is a totally different price level and different type of buyer. Nobody's debating between a NEX-6 or a D800.

your post is complete inaccurate as EOS-M dont match NEX6 speed nor do D3100, D3200 or 1100D with Kit-Lens:
they are blown away by Lumix, PEN or NEX esp. while useing the display or video
for sport etc. just use burst mode with 8 pics/second
and.. nearly all good DSLR prime-lenses are made for FF actually using only 1/2diameter if you print 4:3

Chaitanya S: Pen lite looks more like Pen(non lite) series cameras from previous generation.

As Oly-Manager stated in a interview: there will be a PEN with Viewfinder integrated (it`s not exclusive for OM): I think they will save (tradationally) the Best for the JapanTradeShow.

On Samsung releases 12MP EX2F 'Smart Camera' article (370 comments in total)
In reply to:

Knight Palm: Great feature set of this new Samsung camera. If I remember correctly, Samsung recently started with compressed RAW, previously raw was uncompressed and made the camera slow in buffering/handling.

Good to see the progress with BSI-CMOS, this time reaching 1/1.7" size. Previous record was held by Fujifilm at 1/2" size. But how much better will BSI-CMOS in Samsung EX2F be compared to Canon's traditional FSI-CMOS in S100?

Interesting test comparison ahead to watch the sensor technology progress!

X10 has 2/3" means 1/1,5" Sensor means bigger than EX2

but size isn`t all...

In reply to:

The Silver Fox: I'm sold on the OM-D and will buy one next month. While I plan to invest in several of the primes, I will also get an Oly zoom lens for general purpose shooting. But I'm unsure which kit lens to go with. Any suggestions?

I understand that the 12-50mm 1:3.5-6.3 is weather-sealed, which is a great thing to have for travel. However, both the 14-150mm 1:4-5.6 and the 40-150mm 1:4-5.6 R are equally compact, with 3 times the zoom capability. Coming from SLR's, I'm new to m4/3, so I'm free to invest as needed. Though I've been taking pictures since a wee lad, I'm a relative newcomer to serious photography, and an out-and-out newcomer when it comes to m4/3. So, any help would be appreciated.

or just wait for pany f2,8er zooms

Ace Disgrace: I want to invest and get the NEX-7 but this review have made me think again. In controlled lighting the Olympus wins. How does this MFT OMD EM5 compare with APSC NEX-7 in real world shooting?
Thanks in advance. Congratulations to OLY for a job well done.

very good idea: steve huff photo will help you

New ILC-M are full of ADVANTAGES! because:

most important for taking a picture is: have a cam with you (hwo wants to carry a ugly+bulky DSLR 24/7 at holiday)

ILC-M uses the same sensor with now thaster AND more exactly focus you get (more) better pictures

latest (Touch-)Displays working fine even in brightness and EVF have a BIGGER view AND you can do control/judge picturesettings BEVOR the shot (fiddely with DSLR)

nice Pancake-Lenses and with 4/3 very compact Prime-Lenses and lightweight Tele-Lenses (with SensorShift)

ILC-M there introduced by 4/3 as a further-devellopment from DSLR making high-quality-cams smaller and lighter and easier as 60ty years ago analog PEN and later OM does, as you need new Lenses optimized for LiveView (introduced by Oly) Nikon/Canon decided to melking theire CashCows instead being innovative...

Every serious Photographer hwo has try this new evil-cams wont buy a DSLR for privat use, DSLR only with FullFrame for professional-use still making sence.

In reply to:

msusic: I think one MAJOR negative point should be that Nex simply lacks lenses and upcoming lenses (which haven't been released yet) are quite big an unbecoming of a such small camera.

Nex currently only has a bad kit lens, bad pancake and a huge super zoom.

24mm Zeiss is going to be very big and awfully expensive, 50mm might be ok but it's still relatively big and focal lenght is not interesting at all while 30mm macro is too slow for a prime lens and quite short for a macro lens.

Too bad system cameras rely on lenses ;)

for lens quality just browse i.e. digitalkamera.de

Mean the Gold Award Sony has solve the Flangedistance-Problem of the NEX-System:

since this problem is not new and, as formerly discussed, belongs as a construction fault to the body.

Even if You have tested only the Body, You had to use Lenses for testing and at least give a statement about the resulting Problems for the Lenses and what the costumer can expect if buying a Kit (as pictured).

May be the Software do a brilliant job?
