E-M5 Hum Noise Test (Video)

I took videos using the E-M5 and the E-P3, facing one another. I turned off all electronic devices and lights, closed the curtains and used a battery-powered headlight to make my room as sound-proof as I could.

First video:


The E-M5 is recording video of the E-P3. Background noise seems pretty normal to me.

Second video:


The E-P3 is recording the E-M5. At first, the E-M5 is also recording video (the one you see in the video 1). I then stop the E-M5 video and switch modes to Manual mode. You can clearly hear the difference in noise given off by the E-M5 when it is used in a non video mode.

Videos are still processing for Vimeo as I write this post, but you can download them, I believe.
