Re: Olympus needs to wake up.

Is there any reason why Olympus has chosen to waste the chance to have good video specs on the OM-D ? I really don't get it.

Me neither. And it's not just Olympus - Canon and Nikon also seem to be clueless about video in their consumer cameras too.

Maybe there is more to it then we know. Or maybe they are afraid DPR will put their camera in that funky (hybrid) category, like they did with the GH2. When DPR did that it was the best still's M4/3's available and their label gave it a stigma to many who read that article. Just like the GH3 is the best still's M4/3's camera now from an IQ/features standpoint, but it gets labeled "for video people" by many.

The OMD  is better for stills......IBIS is superior.
