I am looking to buy my first real video camera and was thinking about the Olympus em5 ii. I especially wanted it because of its amazing stabilized sensor. Unfortunately when I looked at some video samples, they looked pretty bad. Is it possible a firmware update or a hack of some sort could improve to video quality and bitrate? Or is it a problem with the sensor. My other choice is the Panasonic g7, which shoots great quality but isn’t stabilized. Any thoughts or other camera suggestions are welcome.
Yeah, I wouldn’t buy a camera that you think needs fixing. Find one that blows you away and has all of the features you desire.
The EM5 isn’t known for having bad picture quality – what are you having trouble with? Sharpness, colour, noise? Might be faulty, might not?
