I was prepared for a one week hike with tent and backpack in the Norwegian mountains. Unfortunately weather was so rainy for consecutive days that I had to switch plans and reverted to a sightseeing trip.
I recently got two Olympus OM-D E-M5 bodies. As a hobby photog reason enough to write a blog post about this camera. I want to show my experience on how the E-M5 performs in 2020. How does the camera feel compared to newer models? Is the image quality still good or far behind the newer competition? Can I recommend the E-M5 camera in 2020?
Update: The camera is released, it is certainly a very interesting release with a lot new introduced tech. But the price of 3.000 EUR is on the high side and we will see, if Olympus will sell it well. For me, no need to switch from my E-M1 but I am also not the targeted pro audience. Here I have a nice overview video of this cam.
The Panasonic Lumix G1 is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera introduced in 2008 for the Micro Four Third standard. One could ask why I write a blog entry about a camera that was introduced 9 years ago? In the consumer electronics world this is a very long time with a lot of technology advancements. If you look at modern cameras, they have gained a lot of new capabilities. However the G1 was a milestone for the Micro Four Thirds standard, since it was the first camera introduced for that system.
