Scott Williams: Blunty, first of all I love your videos, so keep up the great work. I have
a question for you. I have a D3200 which I have learnt on and now feel
ready to step up a level. I have narrowed it down to 2 cameras, the D7100
or the Olympus EM1. I have watched all of your M4/3 videos and listened to
you enthuse about the cameras and the lenses which makes them very
attractive to me. The D7100 will offer me more features and improved image
quality, as well as a format I am already familiar with. I can see pros and
cons for both but I'm really struggling to make my mind up, can you help?
The alternative of course is to spend money on glass, but I don't really
want to do that if I end up changing format!?
freedriv082000: Interesting review. This camera , along with the Panasonic GH4, represent
the best of the Micro Four-Thirds Mirrorless camera system.
But I am interested to see the OMD EM-1 compared to two of the latest APS-C
Mirrorless cameras. Namely the Fujifilm X-T1 and the Leica T.
Fingers crossed Blunty will be comparing these cameras in a view in the
807D14M0ND5: But now you can accidently LOCK your mode dial.. Just kidding. Great
looking camera on paper (and in this video!) can't wait to try it out
Robert Stofa: Blunty, I have to say, your reviews are freaking awesome. Not overly long,
rarely any rambling and to the point, great descriptive work of camera
functions, good camera work, and definitely good examples of photos and
video. rock on.
Arsalan uljamil: Blunty,
How does the IQ of E-M1 compares with Fuji X-2 and Panasonic G-X7?
van nguyen: i had em5 the images so clear, em1 much be better
Olympus OM-D: Quita a good review of the EM1
Kirk Brocas: Quita a good review of the EM1
lemmontree1: I need the weather seal.
Petrut Marin: I woke up to see this video in my feed 8) It's going to be a good
Serge Seva: Great 1st look review and so timely! Would be great to compare it with a so
hyped Panny GX7 sometimes soon :o)! Cheers, Blunty!
John Kwok: Good review! How about the GX7 vs EM 1?
mimstyle: oh man .... your are the first in this planet with e-m1 ... thank you
itsmeeeeeeeeeee: Bluntykins! Could you pls tell us about the flash sync speed? It is
supposed to be higher than the EM5. With my EM5 I am not able to wireless
sync faster than 1/160 with studio lights. I am wondering if EM-1 would
calaphos: This Camera or the "old" OMD ? is costs almost the half...
shirokage240z: still living in the 2000s?
Knut Ivar Skogland: Blunty! Do you know of the "SCP" mode - instead of the other .... ...
thingie when you want to change your settings like ISO, WB, AF, modes, etc
etc. - The "Super Control Panel" are like on the E-5 etc which is much
better in my opinion. ;-)
lemmontree1: I never missed it, and now that I have one on my NEX6, I never use it but
have to carry it arround.
Masticina Akicta: It looks like Olympus is on the ball, a small system with great image
quality. And good handling, what does a person seeks more ?
Paul Grillakis: Hi, Mr B. How about the c-mount cctv lens? Does the focus peaking work with
mcrazza: It's got the awesomeness of the Oly EM-5 and EP5 plus a nice, thick and
grippy DSLR-like handgrip. SOLD. This is the fourth Oly EM-1 video I've
watched today (following TCSTV, PhotoNewsReviews and WhatDigitalCamera) and
although this vid looks solely at the hardware, it's also the most indepth
video of the lot. A-class as always, Blunty.
jeejay98: I don't know how I missed your videos when I needed reviews in the past? I
found the ones you make are amazingly excellent and true. Keep making
reviews. BTW, I just subscribed in your channel. Go Blunty.
jtan163: With an adaptor yes.
Blunty: Don't call me "Bluntykins"... it sounds freaking retarded. EM1 has 1/8000
sec top shutter speed, 1/320 sec flash sync.
46ace: Try a pc or flash extension cable..David hobby has been experimenting on
hisblog(strobist.com)with the leaf shutter on the fuji x100S: technically
it should sync well over1/1000 but radio slaves introduce miliseconds of
lag that give him problems over 1/800. Straight hardwired cable he can sync
to 1/4000 ( with the leaf shutter).
Dec7m2: fizz like James May?
hollowSmart: I want one so baaaad.
Blunty: Seemed perfectly solid to me. Zero issues
MrKikoboy: according to most all other reviews, software lens correction is for OLY
lenses only...not all...
Nodlehs100: Do you know if there is a cable release socket on this and if so what type?
richardmg9: Would you still consider Sony's focus peaking to be better?
rmysterio80: Why on earth would you not want a viewfinder?
TheRealBeerai: Is focus peaking a hardware thing or is it purely software? I would have
thought it was software, which makes me angry because Olympus probably
won't implement it in the OM-D just because they want people to buy a newer
camera. Not surprised, but annoyed nonetheless.
MintLord: I don;t know why,but your videos are so entertaining! Maybe it's your
voice, or your up-beat attitude, but it's awesome. :) Keep on making
Didn't have much of a choice...: Not as pretty as the last OM-D, but I do want.
BarnET0: It looks like that olympus has nearly all the great lightroom features in
ShirowSan: Hey Blunty, good work as always. Question: from purely an aesthetic point
of view, do you prefer the omd em-5, the em-1 or the ep5?
Leonardo Wong: Hi Blunty, love your videos and the em1 looks interesting although i am
more interested in the Oly 12-40 f2.8 lens. Jus wondering, What micro four
third lenses do you own and love?
Bernie Zelvis: I'm told you can't have in body stabilization in video mode because to have
it the imaging chip is floating. Video mode generates heat so the chip must
be put into contact with a heat sink. Damn!
tjousk: Your reviews are doubly awesome, being as you answer questions such as this.
Bernie Zelvis: Thanks, I'll check 'em out.
Blunty: Whatever dumbass told you that is a freaking liar, or a moron. Or both.
Stabilisation works freaking fantastically in video and has already been
doing so on many previous olympus cameras.
KiddsockTV: LOTS of control. Nice extra controls remotely too. Love the retro rewind
princecody: That price seems ridiculous!
giaccomusic: big wow for the hue control!! Blunty is fuc.... awesome as usual. 12-40 any
xyanide.wav: Asakura spotted!
BarnET0: Thanks for the reply and i am looking forward to that review. Have fun
playing with that long awaited piece of pro olympus glass. There hasn't
been a new pro zoom from olympus since 4/3 so enjoy your privilege Yes, I
Yu Shaun: Blunty just curious will it come in silver? i love the design of the EM 5
tjousk: Indeed, I think you may have improved the magic.
