This is a stunning camera, with amazing HDR and Backlight capabilities.

I would like to know if the Olympus OMD has a backlight function for taking photos inside houses and getting the view included, like this?

I was very disappointed, the look and finish are excellent, this camera is thin enough for a ...

The map download is simple but make sure that you have a large SD card as the maps for USA take up about 1 Gigabyte on the SD chip. The maps take a long time to download and must be downloaded separately to each memory chip that you plan to use while the chip is in the camera. The landmark locator is limited in my hometown and somewhat hit and miss with somethings that should be landmarks missing from the list and somethings in the list that shouldn't be.
