A whole new perspective
I've been an avid photographer for about 40 years, and I was curious about the Air. I thought it would be another "toy" in my bag, but I've found that it gives me a whole new perspective on photography. The angles and views that I can get with the Air are like no other camera. Close-up pictures are amazing since I can get the camera into spots that I usually wouldn't be able to get to. Event photography is amazing! I can hold the camera high above my head, down at my knee, around a corner, etc and still get great shots with the viewfinder in my hand. I love the easy layout of the controls & settings on my smartphone - all the features that I'm used to using on my OM-D series camera are available on the Air. The Air generates a lot of interest from spectators, especially in a crowd. I wish I could get a commission from Olympus because I've already sold a couple of Airs in the first week I've owned it! If you are already a user of micro 4/3 cameras & lenses, the Air is the next step you need to take. It'll give you a familiar system to use in an entirely new way, and you'll have an extra/backup camera body too. The only problem I'm having is now I want to buy more lenses to compliment the unique capabilities of the Air!

It will expand your vision
As the reviews indicate, this is a small, fun unit. It does take great photos, has many great lenses available but as you study the unit; think of things that your 'regular camera' can't do. Like shoot remotely, mount on a monopod/pole and explore out-of-reach areas It may need some help with lighting, maybe a hand grip. These are trivial, the core is there in the Air 01. I am still exploring and expanding my uses of this gem. Last thought; consider if you have a micro four thirds camera now and maybe some lenses, those lenses fit and the Air 01 costs less than most lenses and can use your lens inventory.

Air challenge to connect
Camera itself takes good pictures. My sweat and swear has been using it, getting it connected! I did with both IOS and Android... it won't connect easily. After hours.. I found it connected the wi-fi to one of the paired smartphones and bluetooth to the other... AHA!! Then I set one of them in flight-mode and find the Air still won't connect. Reason; the smartphone dropped the Air OR the Air dropped the connection (?) thereby smartphone connected to a local network... I set it back manually and ... then the smartphone is connected to the blue-tooth-speakers nearby, dropped by the Air again... I closed everything nearby OFF and FORGET home network on smartphone. YES! After way to long time. I want the air to connect to SAME device on both wi-fi and Bluetooth without all the extra miles... I tried the camera with 40-150 PRO lens, nice touch focusing! I have taken pictures "blind" with 14-42 3.5-5.6 EZ... looks good, takes som practice.. I'll write when I have more on sound for video etc. I'll use it as extra camera for work with OM-D MarkII, unless I tire. Or get a separat screen for use with it exclusively..

Needed hand grip body option
This is a very good cellphone option were you can do all the creative shots found on using dslr. If you already have the lenses it will be a more cheap option. But I hope you can also make a body grip option like the ones on medium format cameras were it has a monitor and EVF and has a grip. It should have direct connection instead of Bluetooth. Now we have a modular camera :-) upgradable by lens, sensor or body camera grip like medium format. Hope you can start that kind of trend. First modular mirrorless camera. I will give you 100 stars for that innovation.

Interesting concept - and fun
If you want to try something differently - I guess ithis is the smallest MFT combination on the market if you don't take your smartphone into account. Connection to an Iphone is a bit of a pain, when your Iphone is in range of your homes wlan and is connecting to that and not to your AIR camera. Connection is also not very fast. So don't expect that you have this camera on quickly and that you Combination with the 17 mm 1.8. is nice and gives you a manual focus ring - with some practice you can even shot without your iphone connected and this is then very fast.
