The guys at Digital Rev have just put out a video of a hands-on review of the Olympus OM-D E-M5 retro styled micro four thirds camera [Amazon $999]. Kai takes a casual, yet knowledgeable look at the camera’s functions and styling. It feels like Kai flips back and fourth a bit on his opinion of the camera; here are a few of his observations:
- The Om-D E-M5 feels like a silhouette of its film shooting OM predecessor. Similar looks, no depth.
- An excellent choice as long as you aren’t expecting a ‘real’ OM Camera.
- Offers a wonderful shooting experience with a healthy megapixel count.
- The Olympus EP-3 may be a better alternative for a bit less money.
