Re: It's very clear now: Olympus won't focus on video!

If you're accusing me of Olympus fanboying, which is odd considering it's a post that's mostly criticizing Olympus fanboys, where do you stand with Panasonic that arrogantly suggested in a recent interview that they won't bother with IBIS in video?

I like Panasonic a lot but they have made a few decisions that have made me think they don't quite get it yet either. Until they take IBIS in video seriously and have some method for having external mic input on every camera as Olympus have, I'll take low bitrate compromised framerate handheld video w/ external mic over high bitrate perfect framerate jittery handheld video, and no, I can't use a tripod or a Steadicam because that doesn't fit into how I want to work.
