Flipping it down switches the camera immediately to &ldquo;selfie mode&rdquo;, offering on-screen buttons to make the process of capturing that ideal picture of yourself all the more simple.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The E-PL7 also offers Wi-Fi, enabling it to connect to an iOS or Android device.

It&rsquo;ll be available from early October, priced at &pound;499 (which includes a 12-42mm zoom lens) and in three colours: white, silver and black.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/system-cameras/top-ten">The 10 best system cameras in the world right now</a></strong></p> <p><iframe frameborder="0" height="180" src="http://pages.haymarket.com/stuff_signup/enews_embed" width="300"></iframe></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/olympus-pen-e-pl7-3.jpg?1409226464" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> Olympus System Cameras Thu, 28 Aug 2014 11:46:37 +0000 Sam Kieldsen 1446072 at http://www.stuff.tv Bye bye blur: Olympus Stylus SH-1 brings five-axis stabilisation to the compact world http://www.stuff.tv/olympus/bye-bye-blur-olympus-stylus-sh-1-brings-five-axis-stabilisation-compact-world/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> OM-D tech in a point-and-shoot?

In fact, it handles much like the E-M5 fitted with just the upper part of the optional battery grip. Sadly for upgraders, the lower part of the E-M5 battery grip doesn&rsquo;t work with the E-M1. We tried.</p> <p>There are, of course, even more control options, with extra jog-dials and a handy switch to move between one set of custom functions and another.</p> <p>The button lock on the mode dial is also new &ndash; and awesome (in a really nerdy kind of way). Instead of having to hold it down while operating the dial, you just push it once to unlock and push again to lock. Why don&rsquo;t they all work like that? And why can&rsquo;t all non-compact cams be like the OM-Ds and have a dedicated door for the memory card, instead of hiding them in the fiddly recesses of the battery compartment?</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Olympus OM-D E-M1 review" alt="Olympus OM-D E-M1 review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_B190065.jpg?1392204350" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Olympus OM-D E-M1 review" alt="Olympus OM-D E-M1 review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_B190068.jpg?1392204350" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> LENS IS MORE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The 4/3&rdquo; sensor means relatively tiny lenses to match, and the selection is growing.

Its first son, the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/olympus/olympus-om-d-e-m5/review" target="_blank">E-M5</a>, was our camera of the year in 2012, and its incredibly talented sibling the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/olympus/hands-olympus-om-d-e-m1/feature">E-M1</a> lifted the very same gong at the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/gadget-awards-2013/stuff-gadget-awards-2013-these-are-best-cameras-year/feature" target="_blank">2013 Stuff Gadget Awards</a>.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/will-findlater" title="View user profile.">Will Findlater</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Design and build: this thing is tiny, and lovely </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The truth of the sub-head above rather depends on your aesthetic proclivities, but as far as we&#39;re concerned Olympus is crafting the most beautiful cameras money can buy. Except for the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/df/nikon-df/review" target="_blank">Nikon Df</a>, perhaps. In any case, the E-M10 continues the tradition of cladding the camera&#39;s compact internals in angular metal and topping it off with deeply gnurled knobs, giving the impression of a gadget you could seriously hurt someone with.</p> <p>What the OM-D lacks compared with its big brothers are a powered accessory port and some weatherproofing, but there are a number of improvements over the E-M5 and E-M1. The body is smaller, yet there are now pair of control knobs rather than just the one on the right-hand side. Even more usefully, it has a pop-up flash - something missing from both its predecessors. It feels well balanced, solid and is easy to hold for a small camera, although it inevitably lacks the grabability of a big-grip SLR.&nbsp;</p> <p>The optional M.Zuiko Digital kit lens is a wonder of engineering: a versatile 14-42mm equivalent with electronic zoom and an f3.5-f5.6 aperture that fits into a 22.5mm pancake and opens with a satisfying click. Olympus reckons that with this lens attached the E-M10 will still fit inside the carcasses of rival SLR bodies - it&#39;s 63.9mm thick in total. That&#39;s half as long as an iPhone.

That means it can compensate for the pitch, yaw and roll of shaky wrists, but uses electronic compensation for additional horizontal and vertical shake.</p> <p class="p1">While the 16MP four thirds-size sensor in the E-M10 is the same two year-old model from the more expensive E-M5, the processor is the upgraded TruePic VII out of the E-M1. That, says Olympus, means improved high-ISO performance over the E-M5, among other things. It&#39;s also capable of shooting 1080p video; the E-M5 topped out at 1080i.</p> <p class="p1">Otherwise, performance is limited (possibly artificially, given the potency of the electronics inside) to shoot 8 frames per second in burst mode compared to 9 for the E-M5 and 10 for the E-M1.

We didn&#39;t see it in action, but Olympus tells us the usual functions are present and correct: you get a live stream of whatever information is hitting the sensor, and you can use the app to frame your shot, take a photo, apply Instagram-like filters and share to social networks.

Oh, and that glorious retro styling of course.</p> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Tiny camera, massive lens </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>So what's the deal with this camera? Compared to the epic 1-incher of the Sony, the sensor is on the small side: 12-megapixel, 1/1.7-inch. But that means the Stylus 1 is far smaller, and the 28-300mm lens has a constant f/2.8 aperture right up to 300mm, which means you should be able to get sharp images even when shooting at a distance or in poor lighting conditions. As the sensor is relatively small, focusing on close-up images is also supposedly quick and accurate.</p> <p>Other features include the fast touch AF system from the Olympus PEN series (which focuses on whatever you touch on the screen and shoots almost instantly), Wi-Fi control with live viewfinder on your iOS or Android smartphone, and 1080/30p HD video recording. And it comes with the excellent electronic viewfinder out of the Olympus OM-D, which will allow a 100% view of the image you're snapping and real-time applications of filters and effects before you hit the shutter.</p> <p>A control ring around the lens allows access to manual settings including aperture and shutter speed, while a toggle next to it lets you swap quickly between assisted shooting and the 'you're on your own' manual variety.</p> <p>The price for this pocketable beauty? About £550, and it'll be available by the end of November.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2013/10/29/olympus-stylus-1-compact-camera/" target="_blank">Engadget</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="423" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/olympus%20stylus%201%20b.jpg?1383122379" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/olympus/olympus-stylus-1-sexiest-superzoom-compact-world/news#comments Cameras Olympus Tue, 29 Oct 2013 15:48:40 +0000 Will Findlater 1428530 at http://www.stuff.tv Hands-on with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 http://www.stuff.tv/olympus/hands-olympus-om-d-e-m1/feature <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Can the successor to our favourite mirrorless snapper make another leap for camera-kind? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="4032" height="3024" title="Olympus OM-D E-M1" alt="Olympus OM-D E-M1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/OMD1.JPG?1378894935" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Mirrorless cameras sure are growing up fast.</p> <p>Only last June we marvelled at the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/olympus/olympus-om-d-e-m5/review">Olympus OM-D E-M5</a>, which rocketed to the summit of our Top 10 'DSLRs, etc' list. And now they've made our inner proud uncle all misty-eyed again with the OM-D E-M1 – an upgraded version that's left us very tempted to trade in the office cat.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/mark-wilson" title="View user profile.">Mark Wilson</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> What&#039;s new? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>To help justify that Jackass-painful price tag, the E-M1 brings five big upgrades. Propelling it further into semi-pro territory is a new 16MP Live MOS sensor with boosted image processing. This kept our shots remarkably noise-free even at high ISOs and plays nicer with the range of Four Thirds lenses it works with via an adaptor. Along with the Micro Four Thirds lens range, this means the E-M1 has 63 pieces of compatible glass and counting.</p> <p>Another boost that's more immediately obvious is the 'dual fast' autofocus system. The E-M5's autofocus was already snappy, but the E-M1's is lightning fast at locking onto targets and now also works in sequential mode – making it particularly talented at burst shooting moving objects, like horses.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="4032" height="3024" title="Olympus OM-D E-M1" alt="Olympus OM-D E-M1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/OMD2.JPG?1378894935" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Now with added Wi-Fi </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Our favourite (if less essential) new addition is Wi-Fi. Press a button, scan the on-screen QR code with your iOS/Android device, and it pairs the two via the free Ol.Share app. It acts as more than just a remote shutter button – you can also fiddle with settings like aperture, ISO and white balance, while your E-M1 stands ten feet away in the line of fire. There's surprisingly little lag and it saves an extra copy of the photo onto your tablet or phone.&nbsp;</p> <p>Then, finally, there are the exterior upgrades: better build quality and a boosted electronic viewfinder. The E-M1's new chunkier grip makes it steadier for handheld shots, and the body is now an all-magnesium beauty that, with the camera's feast of dials and controls, makes it feel reassuringly expensive. That bright and crisp viewfinder is also almost twice the resolution of the E-M5 and gets close to (gasp) troubling optical viewfinders.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="4608" height="3456" title="Olympus OM-D E-M1" alt="Olympus OM-D E-M1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/OMD3a.JPG?1378894935" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="4608" height="3456" title="Olympus OM-D E-M1" alt="Olympus OM-D E-M1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/OMD3b.JPG?1378894935" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> What&#039;s still great? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>As you'd hope for the price, the E-M1 also does all the things that made its predecessor our favourite camera. It's dust, splash and freeze-proof (down to -10C), has the same 'five-axis' sensor stabilisation that works really well for off-the-hip handheld photography, and has a fantastic Live Time mode for making long exposure light paintings.</p> <p>Most importantly, it feels great in the hand and is really fun to shoot with. But is it £1500 of fun, the price of the E-M1 with a 12-50mm kit lens?
