Cinema5D has put together some initial testing and conclusions about the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II that covers why many cameras come with half baked video features. The new OM-D isn’t a slouch, but it sure would be nice to have internal log capabilities.
“The OM-D E M1 Mark II is a very big step forward for Olympus when it comes to video picture quality! In fact, it is one of the best video-capable photo cameras that I have recently tested. The higher video data rate along with the excellent stabilisation system makes it a valid option as an A-camera working tool….The competition is tough and will probably get even tougher the minute Panasonic announces their final GH5 specifications. As the OM-D E M1 Mark II will be Olympus’s flagship camera for the next 2-3 years, I do hope that the engineers will consider to “go wild”, and be restricted only by camera hardware when implementing newer functionality and usability with future firmware updates.”
