Re: Any E-PL5 Raw video samples and/or control reviews?

I think as long as you are not panning the camera, and the scene is relatively stationary (very slow pans at most), then you should get acceptable footage.

I put the camera through somewhat of a codec torture test - basically shooting a wood fence, and panning across it.  There is a lot of fine detail, and the codec literally falls apart.  In some areas, there is a large amount of macro blocking, and if I pan enough, the resolution is reduced - not good.

I also shot my neighborhood at night, ISO 3200 - lots of dark areas, and a few lights.  This scene exhibited a little bit of macro blocking, but the resolution was not reduced.  I attribute this to the large, dark areas in the frame.

If you are interested, here is the fence test:

Good luck!
