If the specs are true .. then this is a truely wonderful camera. However... the price is high ... and... I have to ask that....given it's physical size .. just whom.. exactly... within the Joe Public camera buying market, ... is this camera aimed at? However, that said, I hope it does well ..(Indeed it deserves to do well).

angus rocks: When are they, Google, going to start their loss-less Jpeg compression? Are we going to have to upload all are pics, again next year?

What is loss-less jpeg compression? The freebie software paint.net offers jpeg file saves at 100% quality ... is this the same?

Cheers,

Given the superb IS, 4k video and price, this has to be THE video camera for aspiring enthusiasts/students of videography. Well done Olympus!

Interestingly, it looks like this camera can be fitted with an accessory motordrive/grip (see gold contacts, and a location hole to the right of the body). See:

I wonder how good it will be for macrophotography....

On article Sony a9 Full Review: Mirrorless Redefined (2747 comments in total)

Undoubtedly a fantastic camera .. but what idiot is going to pay that kind of price? Besides .. I thought that many folks are now considering replacing their current "pro" and largely Canon/Nikon gear with the fourthirds mirrorless system. Unfortunately this camera came out after the Olympus OMD-EM1 Mk 2 ... a camera which (for most aspiring pro photographers) will suffice .. and then there's all those wonderful Olympus (and to a lesser extent Panasonic) lenses.

Argghh! No hand-held high resolution mode. What a HUGE disappointment! Ah well, guess I'll buy it anyway..:)

Oh . wow .. those earphones are a muggers' delight! Why? . you may say ..... they are sooo expensive. The mugger dudes will grab your drop earing looking earphones (at £159.00 per pair .. I cannot believe that) and sell them to their local pub/ drug dealer for £20.00 or less). However, I have to ask .. who the hell will be brave enough to wear those earphones in public? (Does anyone agree with me?)

Well .. dunno what Canon is up to .. their latest product is fantastic >> but >>> who cares? ...everyone is holding out on spending on a new camera .. because the 4k movie mode Olympus OMD-EM1 Mk II is about to be launched.. = a more than movie quality for professional YouTube videographers

Yawn. Does anyone really care about what Canon (and indeed Nikon) do anymore .. especially now that the MK II version of the Olympus OMD EM1 is about to be released .. with it's 40+MP (hand held) high resolution mode. Dunno .. guess there must still be a few die-hard Canon/Nikon guys out there.....:)

On article Waterfails: We test Pentax K-1's Pixel Shift (225 comments in total)

Looking at some of the comments posted here, I think people expect too much from this camera as far as pixel-shift is concerned. In other words the reviewer got a bad press. For studio/static work, in pixel shift mode, this camera out-performs my Olympus OM-D EM-5 MK II as far as resolution is concerned, but both produce fantastically detailed images.( Five from my Olympus are posted here: http://www.normanday.net/p362961329 ). Olympus's successor the EM-1 (due later this year) will have a hand-held pixel-shift mode, and it would not surprise me if this camera will eliminate current problems associated with subject movement.

On article Virtual Reality: It's not just for gamers anymore (140 comments in total)

As far as the domestic/consumer market is concerned VR will go the same way as 3D and curved TVs .. in other words .. it will never become main stream. However I can see it's use in specialist applications .. e.g. medical training. VR has been around for years now .. during which the often promised "take off" for this technology simply has not happened. And then there's those darn goggles ... who can be bothered to put them on .. and even more ....remember to keep them charged up?

It would have been nice to have seen in this field test, footage taken with the underwater mode - so we could see by how much peripheral distortion is reduced.

Mariano Pacifico: 204 degrees angle of view !!! Neon Green !!! Awesome looks !!! $350.00 !!! Geo-tagging !!! F2.0 !!! Tell me, who can beat that?

Any camera that doesn't have a 204 degree lens. I cannot believe that the Olympus techy's were stupid enough to choose such a wide field of view. The camera itself undoubtedly has terrific image quality ... but those curved verticals are gonna put an awful lot of Joe Public off from buying it. Presumably Olympus will issue a software fix for this? Or, it may well be that if the camera is set to underwater mode, then this horrible (above water) distortion is eliminated .. but Olympus do not state this in the camera manual.

In reply to:

Morpho Hunter: Well (presumably) this camera is already "dead in the water" after it's been rumoured that Olympus's EM-1 mark II camera (with its comparatively tiny, super high quality lenses) will produce 80 megapixel hand-held images .. for a fraction of the cost of the Hassy body and lenses..... but hey .. it could
all be a scam!! The era of full frame and medium format cameras is about to end ...

Well .. it may well be true .. Hassy will undoubtedly "reply" with an even greater megapixel camera (at an even greater megapixel cost) .. but it will all be too late .....
