Re: why does the E-M1's video get dissed?

I have no more understanding of video than I can sprout wings and fly, but even I can see a pretty dramatic difference between video I take with a camcorder and video I take with whatever DSLR/mirrorless camera I have at the moment. I'll grab my iPhone before I take video with my E-M1, but I love it for stills. And, the bottom line is, I mostly shoot stills. My choice is to have a still camera I'm crazy about and also a serviceable camcorder. Certainly not a prosumer model--just one that takes good movies of my grandchildren's events. I just never think of taking stills with my camcorder or movies with my E-M1.

I applaud people who have a solid grasp of video terminology and features. I'm just not among them.
