  • Excerpt: una macchinettta che tutto sommato fa bene il suo lavoro, accensione veloce, molte modalita' di scatto fotografiche, diversi formati anche per i piu' esigenti, viene fuori un file jpeg che non bisogna di molte variazioni, soprattutto usando i programmi con piu' saturazione del colore.Se proprio devo trovare qualche difetto direi la messa a fuoco non sempre precisissima e la degradazione della qualita' della foto quando si scatta superiore agli 800 iso.Comunque vale i...

Decent for what it is.

  • Summary: Even new the E-PM1 is priced at the low end, and since I purchased this body used it was very inexpensive. After adding a used 14-42mm lens, it is still just under $200. I can't complain about the price, or the performance given the price. To keep the cost down Olympus has eliminated some buttons, which means you have to go through the menus to change a lot of the settings which isn't very convenient, but as a point and shoot replacement it isn't bad at all.

YMMV--now returning second bad camera

TW, Cameta
23 August 2012
  • Excerpt: The camera itself is great, but the first one I was sent had a bad internal battery, meaning that the camera lost the date and time when I swapped the primary battery out. This was a minor inconvenience, but Cameta made it easy to return for a replacement. Unfortunately, the replacement I got had an even worse issue--all photos are incredibly washed out caused by a much more serious problem with the camera's internals.
  • Pros: Small / Compact
  • Cons: BROKEN

Panasonic GF3 might be better for those upgrading from point-and-shoot

SmartShopper "SmartShopper", Amazon
7 December 2011
  • Summary: The E-PM1 is compact for its class and takes good shots, but my wife spotted a deal on the GF3 (which I hadn't researched that much)--I'm glad she did cuz I'm happier with the GF3. In comparison,the E-PM1 had some disadvantages: -Stabilization seems to create lots of audio noise when recording video--in this respect, in-body stabilization appears to be a disadvantage compared to Panasonic's in-lens approach.

Back-up camera

Ianscarboro, Amazon
29 October 2013
  • Summary: Bought as a cheap back-up camera for my OMD - for which it is fine - but the lack of a viewfinder (especially in strong sunlight) is a real problem. Light and very portable.

take care

Paul A. Guillan, Amazon

  • Summary: i bought this after seeing a number of positive reviews and because one could change the lenses . I was looking for a camera which could take close up images . I was disappointed to find that the macro facility is very poor . I suppose this is intentional so that you have to buy an expensive macro lens . This would turn a 300 pound camera into 500 pound camera . the menus are extremely difficult to navigate and not intuitive and i am not unused to these things .

mmm.....

Ms. B. Russo, Amazon

  • Summary: mmm.. what to say. First and above all I am not a professional photographer and by no means I am even close to understanding how to use a DSLR and that's I guess one of the reasons I went for this camera. Overall it's a powerful camera that allows you to gradually go from "point&click" to full DSLR mode however it's not really worth all that money..

  • Excerpt: Главный недостаток данной фотокамеры -это неточный автофокус. Он конечно быстрый ,но ...как в известном фильме "БАЦ,БАЦ и МИМО!!!" Шум на фото в принципе приемлемый.
  • Pros: Демократичная цена. Качество изготовления. Небольшие размеры относительно зеркалок.
  • Cons: Постоянные ошибки фокуса. Шумные снимки.
