Great little camera
I am already the owner of a OlympusXZ-1 which
is my carry camera because of weight and
lightning fast Lens. For the price I could not pass
the EPM1. I bought it to pick up where the ZX-1
leaves off. I am going to get a telephoto lens for
it so I can shoot the Indy cars when they come to Detroit. I am also going to use it to shoot the
Gold Cup Hydroplane race on the Detroit River.
Both places you need a longer lens.
As for shooting with the EMP1 with the standard
lens it took a little getting used to with no funtion
dial on the top deck like the XZ-1 dose. Once
you get used to using the display screen to
select function the camera is smooth to use.
The stock lens that comes with the camera is
perty darn good. I got some good shots with
landscapes, closeup, and still lifes.
The color and sharpness just knocks your eye
out. I also have and VF2 electronic view finder
which you can use on either camera.I really
recommend this to owners of either camera.
I am sure I will get good results with the EPM-1
with the telephoto. So far the only complaint I
have is the EPM-1 dose not have the cross hatch
pattern in the view finder like the XZ-1 has.
It is very helpfull on horizon shots to keep things
virtical and horrizontal. Other than that it is a
real shooter and a keeper.
very good picture quality, great camera
i purchased this camera about 3 months ago and since then have taken about 3,000 pictures, the quality of the pictures is very good and the the fast autofocus is truly amazing i took 650 pictures at an air show this past weekend, being able to turn the camera on point and shoot pictures all within a few seconds at the full 42mm with clarity i did was awesome. the one complaint i do have is the in low light situations the on auto mode the pictures almost always blur due to the longer shutter speed it needs to compensate even with the flash, however if you go into the menu with a few adjustments you can fix this. i recommend this camera for any one looking for something better than your typical point and shoot, but not wanting to brake the bank on a crazy SLR.
Great little camera!!!
This Olympus camera takes beautiful shots. Love finished product with some cool tools included to play with; such as one-click black and white or sephia. Lightweight and was not a burden to carry as I travelled through South Korea for a month and took about 1000 pictures. Just wish I had the 40-150mm zoom lens as this sometimes didn't make the items close enough.
small package but pack great IQ and easy usage
great to carry around for casual street pictures
white camera look good with silver lens
Great lightweight kit
Got the E-PM1 for my wife. Wanted something small & light to go in her purse. But didn't like the quality of the point n shoot cameras out there. This is a very capable little camera for both the beginner or the pro. Put the 45 1.8 prime lens on it & you will be in love..
I will likely buy another one for my self. The wife always has this one with her.
