Re: Fotopolis Review of E-M5 - Issues

2. The OLED screen definitely DOES NOT have a narrow viewing angle, I tested this myself because I have tilt and swivel on my 4 cameras that I've been using for 5 years and is something that I wanted to check.

1. Did not notice this maybe the reviewer has very smooth skin on his hands (less washing up and using keyboards)

3. maybe he was nervous because he is a long term viewfinder shooter... he has no confidence in himself??

The review identifies some new issues:

1. The black version has a slippery grip

2. The LCD has a narrow viewing angle (blue cast when viewed even at a gentle angle)
3. and, something about a "nervous" LCD.

Can someone help explain what this mean when it said the screen was a little nervous.

Functions of the buttons

on the upper wall of the left side we find the traditional shield of exposure, to which we have easy access left thumb. On the other hand, the viewfinder will find two wheels elegantly designed settings. The camera menu can determine which parameters are supported by a concrete shield and direction of change - a convenient and simple solution. Additionally, in P, A, S, we can under one of the targets assigned flare correction, which is also a nice option. Shields handles quite comfortably, although access to the rear is a little hampered by thick LCD screen. I do not mind it when shooting using the viewfinder, but when you're framing the screen a little nervous.

The original Polish text:

Funkcje przycisków

Na górnej ściance z lewej strony znajdziemy tradycyjną tarczę trybów ekspozycji, do której mamy łatwy dostęp lewym kciukiem. Z drugiej strony wizjera znajdziemy dwie elegancko zaprojektowane tarcze nastaw. W menu aparatu możemy ustalić jakie parametry będą obsługiwane przez konkretną tarczę oraz kierunek zmiany - wygodne i proste rozwiązanie. Dodatkowo w trybach P, A, S możemy pod jedną z tarcz przypisać korektę błysku, co także jest sympatycznym rozwiązaniem. Tarcze obsługuje się dość wygodnie, chociaż dostęp do tylnej jest trochę utrudniony przez gruby ekran LCD. Nie przeszkadza to podczas fotografowania z wykorzystaniem wizjera, jednak podczas kadrowania na ekranie trochę denerwuje.
