At EOSHD we like to ask the important hard-hitting questions with memes.
Olympus have announced a new flagship Micro Four Thirds camera, the OM-D E-M1 which goes head to head with the GH3 but without any of Panasonic’s focus on video. The camera offers only one frame rate at all resolutions – 30p.
When the D5100 was leaked shortly before the official announcement which just occurred in Canada, the specs had video down at 30p. It now seems the new Nikon has a few significant features which we weren’t aware of from the leaked information.
- It does have a 24p ‘cinema mode’
- The codec is ‘AVC-HD H.264’ – note the dash! Maximum recording time 20 minutes.
A Nikon DSLR video mic has been unveiled
- Price is $899 for the 18-55mm kit – not bad!
- Screen is as good as D7000, as is sensor. Good to see the swivel hinge finally too.
