Panasonic GM1 Olympus 45mm f/1.8 lens

Well it's definitely m4/3 week here. Top of the page is a sample video shot with the GM1 + Olympus 45mm f/1.8. And very good it is too. I've ignored the panning and stabilisation issues and as you can see mounted the camera on a (my smallest!) tripod and just shot some footage at 1080 and 25fps. As you can see it's really very good indeed, right up there with the best Panasonic can offer that isn't 4K. 

This camera, a couple of lenses and a decent tripod would make an excellent light video outfit. And the size quality equation is very good.

Incidentally, I said yesterday that the GM1 had the best quality in a camera that size. It has been mentioned that the Sony RX100's are around the same size. However I stand by what I said. The RX100's may have all sorts of virtues but for me outstanding still image quality isn't one of them. I've never liked the stills rendition much despite those 20MP and the GM1 is to me superior in the files it produces. Just thought I'd mention that.

I will be selling my GM1 once I get my cashback, but there is no denying it's an impressive little thing. Definitely 'punches above it's weight'.
