Damien McGillicuddy is testing the EM1

Although I might have missed references to this having been on holiday, Damien McGillicuddy has been testing the EM1. He is holding it in one of the pictures about his work on the 'Rumors' site.

I'd be surprised if he wasn't!

He is a great advert for Oly, and almost larger than life!

Very charismatic, a great communicator who knows how to hold an audience's attention - as well as a darn good photographer, of course!

Re: Damien McGillicuddy is testing the EM1

Not sure if we are talking about the same article but in one article on a rumour site he is definitely holding a Canon (with a white lens).

There was a thread about the same picture that he was also holding an EM1 but on closer inspection it is EM5

I simply can't believe that - for all sorts of reasons.

I thought so too at first glance, but it is the guy behind him with the Canon. To my poor eyes it looks in both picture Damien has hold of the EM-5.

Only rumour has it that it is called the E-M1

Only rumour has it that it looks like a "conventional" camera

That would be outside Olympus' current naming convention. OM-D is the type. E-Mx is the specific. At least, that's what they said when the E-M5 was launched.

Anyway, according to their teaser advert, it's called a FILC.

Re: Damien McGillicuddy is testing the EM1

Why not make a real digital OM, a three way switch, Manual, Off, Auto (aperture priority). No need for a dial with multiple exposure modes. Replace the mode dial with an ISO dial which doubles as an exposure compensation dial.
