This is really nice to see this kind of features coming through a firmware update!All the manufacturers should try to keep their cameras evolving as long as possible, instead of trying to sell us the next model as soon as possible.Fujifilm is good on that side. Canon did well with the 7D. And I'm still waiting for Sony to bring a properly working flash system for the A77...
Kudos to Olympus!
Tilt screen! Pro don't want tilt screen!That and the touch screen from phase One...all these medium format makers have gone crazy ;-)
Touchscreen?Pro don't care about touchscreen! (according to the dpr forums)This must be a toy camera ;-)
In “for larger less such as the XF 55-200mm”, “less” should probably “lens”.
I would be interesting to have a comparison of the focusing speed of various cameras. I remember to have been impressed by the focusing speed of the olympus two years ago, and not so impressed by many others. I wonder how fuji AF compares to olympus AF.
SHood: "shutter shock" is a problem with all mirrorless cameras. Smaller body is part of the problem but also due to the shutter requiring a close/open to start the exposure and then another close/open to end it. This quick double shutter action is different than DSLRs which just need to open to start the exposure and then close to end it.
I have found with my GH3 that shooting at hi-speed continuous shooting does help as liveview is disabled so you don't have the double shutter action except to start the first image and end the last image in the sequence. The electronic shutter on Panasonic bodies also helps but is limited.
The new 1/8000s shutter speed on the E-P5 and E-M1 has probably made it even worse as the shutter is now designed to move even faster. Only the global shutter will totally eradicate this.
Not every mirrorless camera has this double mechanical shutter action per shot. The NEX (and the SLT, though not exactly mirrorless) cameras have a first electronic curtain that avoids that.See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tpYDet-aUsThis may also be the case for other makers.The GX7 also has a full electronic shutter mode but it limits the maximum shutter speed, is not usable with the flash, and shows rolling shutter deformations...
Wow! This is a great shot!
