Summary: This is the second refurbished Olympus 4/3rds camera body I've purchased from Cameta Camera. In both purchases, the camera bodies looked. were packaged, and performed like they were new. I also purchased an Olympus 4/3rds lens from them. I have been very pleased with all of these purchases.
Summary: This is my first m43 camera but I am not new to camera. I already have 2 APS dSLRs with lenses cover 8mm to 300mm with overlapping zooms and fixed FLs. I have always been fascinated by m43 but had no need for one. A recent trip left me wanting something smaller, a lot smaller.
Summary: Some models offer a flip-out LCD, which would certainly be an advantage when trying to capture pictures of small children from interesting vantage points
Pros: -This camera is very fast (aquisition/focus, and frame rate) compared with similarly priced DSLRs, especially when the DSLR is showing the image on the LCD (speed was basically on par when using the DSLR viewfinder). Since we bought this to capture our very active toddler, using the LCD with full...
Cons: -Not having a built-in flash is a bit of an annoyance, but since we don't have any other accessories for the hot shoe, we generally just leave it attached. -The kit lens doesn't have a lot of zoom capability, so we will need something a bit better when he gets into sports -Limited source of lense...
Summary: First of all, i am so impressed about the fast shipment--it was shipped the second day of my purchase. However, the air bag was flat when i received it in an Amazon box--not a deal breaker. The camera's lovely: perfect look, perfect size, light weight, fast actions, comfortable to hold.
E-PM1: Fantastic for the price! Beautiful, small, super-fast, sturdy, sharp, light and cheap micro 4/3 camera

Summary: I have been using Super Zoom Panasonic cameras with Leica lenses for years (DMC-ZS3 and DMC-ZS7 models). Lenses on my Panasonic cameras were fixed Leica 10x and 12x. I always wanted to try a camera with interchangeable lenses, but they were too big and heavy for me to be able to carry them with me...
Summary: I bought this camera to take pictures of my newborn and a toddler. For the most part, I love the camera. It takes some amazing pictures and it is lots of fun to play with different picture modes. Of course, action shots can be blurry but I knew that.
Summary: This review is from a proud father that loves taking pictures of his kids, so it probably is for parents looking to do the same. Firstly, this camera is solid and well built and is a definite step-up in image quality compared to compact cameras.
Summary: I bought this camera for a trip, not wanting to carry my Nikon DX DSLR around, but I was worried about image quality with a four-thirds, so I took it out and shot about 50 or 60 pics with it, and the same ones with my Nikon before my trip. I was very impressed.
