New OM- D E M1

Just seen this on FB.

http://cameras.olympus.com/en-gb/omd

A bit disappointed as it doesn't seem to have a swivelling screen as the E 5.

Re: New OM- D E M1

I know what you mean Dave. Not a deal breaker for me but one of the few initial disappointments. Can get round it using a smartphone and the WiFi of course but whilst that's OK at times it's not as easy.

Outside of that it looks very, very promising indeed.

Anybody understand the ISO Low bit. Native ISO 200 is a drag if you like to "go slow". Can you go true ISO 100? I like slow exposures so losing a stop means more use of ND filters which is not ideal.

Re: New OM- D E M1

Must say after reading quite a bit about this beast, couldn't find anything about the iso range. It used to be that things like that were listed, but not any more, companies have to try to be clever, makes it difficult to get info.

200-25600, with a LOW setting of ISO100, I think that's a tweaked ISO 200. Looks like one stop better than E-M5.

Do you mean if it tilts up and down? If you look at Robin Wong's review, it looks like it does.

Re: New OM- D E M1

Thanks Guys. The Olympus info just says "Low approx 100".

A bit vague to see the least.

Still, it is not a deal breaker so I won't get too hung up about it as the list of pro's far exceeds, by the proverbial country mile, the con's as far as the spec is concerned.

The smartphone app is even available for a proper OS ( Android ) as well as iOS so that's good for those of us who like to use cable release type gizmo's.

Can't wait to try one out.

Wonder how long we will have to wait to process the .orf files in Adobe Raw?

Assuming it's like the E-M1 and the P5, the native ISO of the lens is 200. They then use electronic trickery to bring it down (hence approx 100). Basically, the best image quality is reached at 200 and LOW should only be used for a particular shutter speed/aperture combo.

No, I mean it doesn't swivel like the one on the E5 which opens out and can be swivelled to any angle.

Re: New OM- D E M1

You are likely to get a swivelly LCD if Panasonic buy into the new sensor (like they did on GH3) for another flagship model.
