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.

    • Panasonic AF 101 open to offers!
      By andrew berekdar
      I'm selling a Panasonic AF 101 in very good condition.
      Let's say asking price is £1,995 but I'm open to sensible offers as the camera is not in use now since buying a Canon C100mk2.
      Camera is in London, inspection welcome. 
      Thanks!

    • Start of a New Years Resolution to shoot more with my GH4.
      By George Adamson
      My new years resolution for 2016 is to take my camera as many places as I can and make a monthly video summary!
      I had a little go at practising this last month in December, I didn’t film nearly as much as I would have liked but hopefully I’ll get better at it over the new year.
      Cheers for watching, I'll keep anyone who's interested up to date with how its going - it would be really cool if anyone's doing the same or similar to share their videos too.

      Hi fox ! This is my last edit, a short film about freestyle snowboarding. A beautiful day in a marvelous park (La Clusaz) with the two killers Matteo Cuny and Nicolas Palladio. Top of the pop, we finished with a beautiful sunset. So glad and happy to have shot this.
