Olympus EM-10 or Panasonic GX7??

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

So i'm a Canon 5D Mark III owner and i'm looking for a smaller compact camera as a travel camera, B cam and for street photography. I mainly do video, so video features and quality is important but stills is equally important for personal projects if i'm not taking my Canon out. 

I've narrowed my choice down to two options - the Oly EM-10 and the Pany GX7. As far as i'm aware the picture quality (in stills) for both cameras is similar. However the GX7 has a 1/8000s mechanical shutter and a silent electronic shutter (which i'm not sure the EM10 has) and I do like the tilting EVF. 

 

The EM10 however has that fantastic IBIS (3 axis not 5 but footage shows it works almost as well). The only thing that is disappointing is the 30p restriction and the video quality/options aren't up to par with the GX7.

 

Can anyone offer me any advice on which they think is a better choice? Particularly if you own or have used either of these cameras (or even the similar EM-5/EM-1) please share your thoughts/experiences.

 

Thanks!

The 3 axis stabalization will be good but for me doesn't trump the better handling/interface, video focus peaking and video quality of the GX7.

 

I feel the opposite, and I'm a GX7 owner.  Depends on what you're doing though and how you want to do it.  I have a project coming up that 5-axis stabilization will help make much more productive.

 

If it were only about image resolution/robustness though, I'd stick with my GX7.

      Up for sale is my Olympus Zuiko Pro 12-40mm f2.8 lens.
      I bought this on a whim and have only used it 4 times so condition is as new. It comes with a uv filter, original lens hood , and original lens bag.
      The times I did use it the results were really really nice but I am just not a zoom person.
      This does not come with the original box.
      Looking for £430 +£5 for postage for it.
      I will post pictures later .
       
      Thanks for looking

      The Panasonic LA7200 is an anamorphic adapter that creates a 1.33x stretch, so any camera shooting 16:9 will output a Cinemascope ratio for  footage for post.
      I used with my various lenses, Canon EF and FD, Olympus OM, Panasonic, Lomo ecc... It also includes the front and rear lens caps.
      This adapter uses the taking lens to focus and doesn't need an adapter. It's been a great lens for me to learn with and is great for making the foray into anamorphic shooting.

      Hi,
      I have long looked at this site and the forum for inspiration, it was one of the reasons i chose to get a GH4 to replace my old (and much loved) Canon 550d.. 
      I don't often make short films, mostly i film corporate films (with a DVX200), but recently my friend and i, had an idea for this little film.
      We filmed it over 2 days, and besides the GH4, some of the equipment used, was a Tamron 17-50 2.8 lens, Zhongyi Lens Turbo (focal reducer), some Yongnuo yn300 LED lights and lot of other things, like a variable ND filter, called Vu Scion (which is really good! It gives a really "natural" image.)
      I hope you like the film, and i really hope you will let me know what you think we can do better!

      This listing will include a 77-49mm step down ring and a 49-52mm step up ring that I used with my Canon FD 28mm (2.8) and 50mm (1.4) lenses as well as my Mir 37mm and Helios 58mm lenses. It also includes the front and rear lens caps.

      Please ask if you have any questions and I am open to offers. I am selling this item as/is with no returns.
