30 Seconds with an E-M1X... Shock
14

So I traded in some old gear over at a local shop and picked up another lens and while I was there, the Olympus focused rep let me play with here E-M1X. So while we talk about cost and size... I wanted to share my thoughts. As a reference I have an E-M1.1.

  • While a tiny bit heavier... it feels lighter in the hand.
  • The ergonomics are amazing.
  • It really doesn't look that much bigger in your hand or sitting down.
  • Its controls are perfect Portrait or landscape... that's much harder than most people would believe.
  • It literally feels light. I know it isn't... but due to ergonomics... an E-PL5 (which I traded in that day) feels heavier.
  • I want one lol.

I am actually shocked... I have used a lot of cameras. This was one of the lightest and easiest cameras on the hand.

Yeah it wasn't 30 seconds... it was longer but in 30 seconds I knew what I would learn. Ergonomics was the winner.
