mpgxsvcd: I wish all of the camera manufactures realized what Canon has already figured out. Canon knows that if you get the word out there that your cameras are the “best” then it will take a long time for the general public to figure it out if that no longer is true.

Basically Canon is still riding high on their PR campaign from more than a decade ago. They still sell some cameras simply because most people don’t even realize that Samsung, Olympus, and Panasonic even make cameras.

I hate to say it but the other camera companies better start investing more into Advertising and getting their entire line of cameras in stores like Best Buy. It doesn’t matter how good your product is. Not enough people will buy it if they don’t even know it exists.

Most probably you have not used Oly DSLRs , otherwise you would have not made such a comment.!!! The E-30 and the E-5 sport twin dials which make things a lot easier and then you have dedicated buttons for ISO, AFL/AEL etc which nobody offers including Canikon.

Hello Greg,
Nice to hear that you are safe and sound and will be able to take pictures may be some time later. Take care of your shoulder and see to it that you take proper care of it. Dislocations to the shoulder can be recurring if not taken care of. Your snaps are very nice and pleasant. Hope to see many more such snaps in the near future. Thanks for sharing.

Going by this state of events Olympus and Panasonic should have sued Nikon and Canon in the first place for copying the Micro-Four Thirds Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens cameras and all the other companies that followed suit after the launch of this design of cameras by Olympus and Panasonic. And we are not even talking about the other innovative ideas brought out by Olympus like Live-View in DSLRs,Dust Reduction systems etc.How about that !!!

The expression on the subjects face has benn captured very nicely by the photographer.All the best.

In reply to:

looker: And by "mirrorless", you mean point and shoot? I'm scanning through pages and pages here on DP, trying to find out what the difference between "mirrorless" and point and shoot is. Apparently, just a psychological marketing distinction based on a premium price.

Yes its the difference in size of the sensor which as Olympus system users we are so used to knowing.The sensor size on the Olympus 4/3rd cameras and the micro 4/3rd cameras is the same - (Four Thirds (17.3 x 13 mm) so they are able to make tiny lenses on their OM-D EM-5.In the case of Canon the SLR and the mirrorless cameras are having the same sensor size (APS-C (22.3 x 14.9 mm) so will be difficult to make smaller lenses for the EOS-M series bcos of the larger sensor.

Tiny Point and shoots have a miniscule sensor size- so the poor image quality, whereas with the Oly and other mirrorless offerings the sensor size being large enough its IQ is simply stunning(in fact the Oly OMD EM-5 has an IQ quality on par with the Canon 5D Mark II camera as has been shown by the review on DPR and thats why the OMD is making waves all over the world.
