The buskers around Shinjuku station, Tokyo, shot on an E-M5. On the wide shots the codec craps out completely, but the medium shots with some subject separation it looks OK. Terrific fun to shoot with. I might trade it in for an E-M1 regardless of what happens with rumoured firmware, just for the extra mbps. I finally worked out how to set the IS focal length correctly when using a focal reducer. I still can't get film grain to look any good after it's gone through the vimeo upload process though. This was a large prores proxy file, and in most of the shots it looks like mud.
43 Rumors [url="http://www.43rumors.com/olympus-e-m5-hack-clean-hdmi-422-and-focus-peaking-possible/"]has an article[/url] about the E-M5 being not only hackable, but hiding a bevy of amazing features. Namely,[list] [*]Focus peaking already exists, it's just turned off. [*]120fps 1080p [*]Clean HDMI 4:2:2 output also already exists... and is turned off. [/list] If these are true, and are actually implementable, I for one would flip my shit. Focus peaking is a killer app for me, but the other two are also highly desirable. The hackers discussion of how difficult Oly is making the process of getting the drivers isn't exactly encouraging, though. One would expect the success of the GH2 [i]because of[/i] its hackability to get through to even the stupidest executive. I guess not. Thoughts?
