Check the image quality mode before taking photographs. Let's see if this age difference between two cameras makes a big difference. If Picture Mode is disabled, as it is by default, then the footage is already processed and ready to use. Its perfect for one band videomakers, shooting from cramped areas, corners, low perspective shooting etc. However, the image cannot be enlarged on the camera when a movie is being recorded. With all that said, here are a selection of images I took with the normal 20 Megapixel mode and with the 50M High Res mode for comparison.

The maximum recording time per movie is 29 min. Unraval the sync cable, plug it in and away to go. Olympus Technical Support is happy to help you through this process. All I read about 1080p in the review was that is was soft. With the focus set to Continuous you can use the screen to tap to pull-focus, although in my tests below , the results varied in confidence and consistency. As soon as you fully depress the shutter, the most recent 14 frames are committed to your card and the camera keeps shooting as you keep the button pressed.

Picture Mode is also an option for stills photography, where you use it to apply various styles. It can be terribly confusing for even experienced Olympus owners, and potentially muddying it further is the ability to customize the actual fps speeds of the various Sequential Low and High modes. For this to work, you first need to switch on the Geotag feature from the app, and if desired, change the logging frequency from the default 60 seconds. Bulb requires you to press and hold the shutter release, either on the camera or remotely, while Time opens the shutter with one press and closes it with another. If you want 1080p, the maximum frame rate falls to 15fps as demonstrated above and if you want a 4k timelapse, it falls further to a paltry 5fps. No doubt its expensive to make with two quad processors and the most expensive sensor they ever put in a camera.

Try these out for yourself and pick one! In Card Slot Settings, use the arrow pad Up and Down button to select Save Slot. Tone None, Sepia, Blue, Purple, Green i. I imagine those lens would shift some wildlife folks. In any mode you can set the number of pre-shutter frames from 0 to 14, and if desired set a total frame limit up to 99 frames or unlimited. I started and ended in the same positions as the first video above, so you can directly compare the field-of-view. Above is the complete image photographed in my tests with each camera and below are 100% crops from versions using different exposure lengths and settings. The ability to capture good-looking footage with minimal or no support at all is a boon to anyone travelling light.

The available settings are Standard, Auto Switch, Dual Independent and Dual Same. When either of the cards becomes full, recording switches to the card with available space. In Dual Independent, the images in the two cards are recorded in different image quality modes. In video shooting, you can select the card slot card slot 1 or 2 for the recording. So while the buffer is constantly being refreshed with the most recent 14 frames as you keep the shutter half-pressed, you should still be careful with your timing. More interesting though is the shape of the viewfinder panel: the vast majority used in electronic viewfinders are 4:3 in shape which matches the native shape of the Micro Four Thirds sensors used by Olympus and Panasonic. The only things that are missing are the ability to touch-focus-pull while remotely triggering movies and the presence of Bluetooth to ease connectivity, offer a more responsive remote shutter and maintain a low-power link for unattended geo-tagging.

Certainly gives the Nikon an advantage in these particular comparisons. Try the camera out for yourself in store, or find somewhere you could rent it for a test. The Single and Sequential Low modes are available in all three shutter flavours, while Sequential High misses out on the anti-shock option. Olympus has really delivered the goods here and banished former demons. During the capture process, the sensor is repositioned eight times around a square pattern. Both have greatly improved autofocus. To demonstrate Pro Capture in action, Olympus set up rows of balloons filled with water at a European event and had an archer fire an arrow through them.

You're limited to static scene because of electronic shutter, to avoid jello effect. In Dual Same, the images in the two cards are recorded in the same image quality mode. Follow the Download Firmware link on the product support page to obtain this software. This works alongside chunky finger and thumb wheels which, as before, fall perfectly under your digits, allowing you to make easy adjustments to both even when holding the body with one hand. It's a small, unobjectionable feature that is normally not used but can be a 'shoot saver' on occasions.
