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!?
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
rmysterio80: I cant imagine not using a viewfinder.
Cant stand composing shots while holding a camera out in front of me.
Lemon Tree: I never missed it, and now that I have one on my NEX6, I never use it but have to carry it arround.
rmysterio80: Why on earth would you not want a viewfinder?
bednim: hey blunty, can you tell how quickly does the EVF switch on after putting the camera close to eye? in gx7 feels like ages (although its probably around 1 sec?)
Lemon Tree: I need the weather seal.
Blunty: Then go buy the PEN EP-5.
Lemon Tree: Ok, I want this, without the viewfinder and the grip!
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).
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 ?
Apreche: I currently have a Panasonic GF-2 and awaiting the eventual GH-5. This OMD looks really really good, but it seemed like you had a lot of issues with the video. I do a lot of video, so I'll hold out to see if the GH-5 beats it in that area.
richardmg9: Would you still consider Sony's focus peaking to be better?
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. ;-)
Nodlehs100: Do you know if there is a cable release socket on this and if so what type?
hollowSmart: I want one so baaaad.
Blunty: Seemed perfectly solid to me. Zero issues
TLPhoto1: This is probably enough for me to shift lock stock and barrel from my Nikon FF. The ability to use the 7-14 4/3rds lens to get proper wide zoom on a m43 body is significant.
Could you comment on the card door? I have a GH3 but find the door has no proper 'lock' closed - I have to put tape on it to prevent it popping open in the field. Is the one on this camera more definite in staying shut?
photographerjonathan: the IS alone makes me want this camera, but I am wondering how the overall camera compares to the EP5, image quality and ISO, and body weight, and also the Gx7, do you know if they are going to ever have a two tone model, or only black, and would you rather own an em1 or a 70D for video ? and how do you compare the image quality to the fuji X series
