5 out of 5 eggsLive-Bulb

This review is from: OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5 Black 16.1 MP Live MOS Interchangeable Lens Camera with 3" OLED Touchscreen 14-42mm Lens Kit

Pros: ANother very interesting feature of this camera is its Live-Blub Feature. Which allows you to watch an image devlope in real time in the view finder or viewing screen. The reason this is so interesting form my point of view is if you are interested in IR (Infred Images) this my be the camera to have. By installing one of 3 types of IR Filters you can then not have to rely on timing or specific ISO to watch and determine when the image is as you desire.

Cons: Same As~

Other Thoughts: Same As~

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the Best Mirrorless

This review is from: OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5 Black 16.1 MP Live MOS Interchangeable Lens Camera with 3" OLED Touchscreen 14-42mm Lens Kit

Pros: Small, Lightweight, Fast, Low Light capable, Camera's on the Market. And considered by many including DPR (Digital Photo Review) as one of if not the Best Mirrorless camera's available. That and endorsements form many Professional and Amateur photographers. I have to beg the difference with the previous reviewer and owner of this Model. There are at the least 40 some odd lenses available for this Camera. And in reality a number more. Not to mention the addition of adapters which increase the number by adding the likes of Canon and Nikon Lenses. Sigma, Panasonic, Olympus, and Tamaron offer lenses from 8mm to 300 plus in Focal Length.

Cons: Small for those of us with big fingers.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

This review is from: OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5 Black 16.1 MP Live MOS Interchangeable Lens Camera with 3" OLED Touchscreen 14-42mm Lens Kit

Pros: Really compact compared to regular DSLR's. Shoots amazing high quality photos. Built in art effects make capturing unique photos really simple. Everything feels (and is) high quality and very durable. LCD screen is easy to use and articulation is a big help. Don't buy something cheaper just to save money!!! Save up and get this camera it is unbelievable.

Cons: No wifi transfer to computer or GPS locating where photo was taken. Not even sure if any cameras have these options, but I want them.

Other Thoughts: If you're hardcore, there's not enough lenses out yet.

Best thing to drop in cameras in the 21St century.
