Olympus E-M1X – is it worth $3000?

Comment on the forum

The E-M1 II is one of my favourite cameras. Now the high-end version has been officially unveiled, I have to say I am a little bit disappointed. I had expected an all-new technological marvel to justify the price tag… Instead the E-M1X is very much based on 2-year old technology from the E-M1 II.

It is a little bit like an E-M1 II with a firmware update and vertical grip.

Want the absolute best cheap low-end camera for 4K shooting? You’re looking at it.

I think the E-M10 III at $500 might just be the best value for money 4K camera now available, but it’s easy to lose sight of that. With the recent price race to the top, I’m starting to wonder how monied you have to be. A certain “DSLR video” blog currently features an Alpa cage on a Hasselblad H6D 100C! Anyone got a spare $40,000?

Olympus E-M1 II mini-review – a sign of things to come with the Panasonic GH5?

Olympus E-M1 II and 25mm F1.2 PRO

I got to play with the new Olympus E-M1 II today, a pro Micro Four Thirds camera they hope will sell for $2000. It certainly pulls out all the stops to imitate a miniature 1D X Mark II.

This camera does NOT crop the sensor in 4K mode like the GH4. Instead, it over-samples from 5K down to 4K, using the full width of the sensor even with sensor-shift 5 axis stabilisation enabled.

Featuring a 237Mbit codec, the image quality in Cinema 4K mode is outstanding with very little rolling shutter.
