Craving for a Micro Four Thirds digital camera. We sure know a person or two that definitely do. Luckily for everyone Jamison Cush at DigitalCameraReview posted Round Up: A Micro Four Thirds Field Guide. he compares all the Micro Four Thirds Digital Cameras currently available for your pleasure Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1, Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1, Olympus PEN EP-1, Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1, Olympus PEN E-P2 and Olympus PEN E-PL1. Our favorite is the Olympus PEN E-P2 let us know which one you fancy.
Howard Creech at DigitalCameraReview posted a review on the Olympus E-P2 12 megapixel Pen Digital Camera. He thinks the Olympus E-P2 should appeal to pro and semi-pro shooters looking for a pocketable back-up camera with lots of creative potential, casual shooters looking for a stylish and easy to use camera with lots of automatic capability, and amateur photographers looking to move up from their consumer and prosumer point and shoots. The EP-2 is compact, unobtrusive, responsive, easy to use, and capable of consistently and dependably delivering “pro” quality images.
Allison Johnson at NotebookReview posted hands-on photos and first impressions on the Olympus E-PL1 12 megapixel Digital Pen Camera and he even posted a video! He thinks if the Micro Four Thirds digital camera range is where dSLR and Point-and-Shoot digital cameras meet then the Olympus E-PL1 is definitely the most Point-and-Shoot oriented camera in this category. It doesn’t offer the same sophistication as its predecessors but it does feature almost all of the same the same functions and adds a built-in flash and a lower price.
Cliff Smith at TrustedReviews posted a review on the Olympus FE-4000 12 megapixel Compact Digital Camera. He thinks the Olympus FE-4000 is a rubbish camera even by cheap camera standards. Everything from build quality, handling, performance to image quality is just awful. So he suggest to stay way from this and I couldn’t agree more with him.
Olympus confirmed the PEN E-P2. Compared to the E-P1 it keeps the 12.3 megapixel sensor, same interchangeable lens system with in-body image stabilisation and HD video recording.
Improvements over the E-P1 are:
- An accessory port for accommodating the VF-2 Electronic View Finder (EVF) or external microphone adapter EMA-1
- A newly-developed Continuous Autofocus (C-AF) Tracking System
- Diorama & Cross Process for greater creative expression in your still images and HD videos
- iEnhance to automatically adjust colour and contrast for a more dramatic effect
- Full Manual Control of shutter/aperture in Movie Mode
- HDMI Control of camera’s playback functions using the TV Remote when the camera is connected to an HDTV
