MeganV: This thing gets it bass-ackwards.
It's awkward to clip a big tube onto your phone, using your your phone as the anchor.
Instead, we need a cool ergonomic camera (DSLR, anyone?) that you clip your phone into, using your phone as the viewscreen and, possibly, processing computer.
Nikon, Canon: here's your leap-frog techno-jump disruption opportunity! Skip giving your DSLRs screens and processors. Instead, just let me clip my iPhone onto the back of them. Voila, game changed. Doesn't even have to be wireless--instead of putting the camera's view screen at the end of a tilt-swivel mechanism, put a lightning (or usb-c) plug. I then clip my phone on and rock with a durable, ergonomic, full-frame ILC with real shutter-aperture dials that uses my phone as its (better) brain and (better) view screen. A camera like that could even still use an OVF and traditional mirror box!
Cameras need to become imaging "harnesses" for phones. It'd solve so many problems.
probably because the starting point of mosts is having a good enough smartphone - way more than having a good Olympus camera..
Most people won't buy an Olympus (or even other brands) just to plug their smartphone into
Thanks for the review
it would be nice to have a comparison to the competitors in the same price-rangeAlso, can't you call Olympus and tell them to fix that? it sounds funny, but isn't there anyway that actually listens?
tkpenalty: Is it just me or are panasonic carrying the m43 platform themselves these days?
yea. the high ISO performance is killing Oly.
