Re: Camera Conspiracies and the EM1x

In some situations the DSLR death rattle is a real disadvantage: for example, in September I was repeatedly prevented from getting images of impala drinking from a perfectly positioned boat by the noise of my 3 companions’ 1DxIIs spooking them.

I think they’d be banned from birding hides if they’d just been invented!

For this sort of use, the E-M1ii’s real FF competition comes from the Sony A7iii and (especially) the A9 at the pro level. Earlier Sonys didn’t have silent shutters in drive mode BTW (other than the S models, anyway).
