Excerpt: This is a stunning camera, with amazing HDR and Backlight capabilities. If Samsung bring this camera's upgrade out with a wider angle and more megapixels, they will have an all out winner, as I stopped carrying my Canonn 650 and Fuji HS 30 after acquiring this camera. I would like to know if the Olympus OMD has a backlight function for taking photos inside houses and getting the view included, like this?
Excerpt: The map download is simple but make sure that you have a large SD card as the maps for USA take up about 1 Gigabyte on the SD chip. The maps take a long time to download and must be downloaded separately to each memory chip that you plan to use while the chip is in the camera. The landmark locator is limited in my hometown and somewhat hit and miss with somethings that should be landmarks missing from the list and somethings in the list that shouldn't be.
Summary: I took this with me to use in Budapest and the battery life was awful, I was so disappointed as it only lasted for about 25-30 photos and the GPS took forever to find my location. I have just downloaded a firmware update and hope this will sort the battery issues out. If the camera is left unused over a couple of days the battery drains completely.
