I'm still a little skeptical about this EM1 4K firmware update rumor, but if true it would be absolutely brilliant. Not that I'll be shootin in 4K, I'd be thrilled to have really good quality 1080.

The big thing as far as I'm concerned is having full manual control whilst shooting video...basically, if this firmware were to bring the EM1 video up to atleast GX7 video quality I'll be thrilled. Really good 1080 with manual control is all I need.

Got my fingers crossed.

Is there some rule somewhere that even photography sites or photographers have to use a blurrycam to take photos of impending products etc?

Better contact them about this one Ray. Egregious behavior like this can't be ignored!

As owner of EM1, this would help me save lots of money by eliminating the need to have GH4 for video!

Maybe. But when hurriedly taking it with a phone without being noticed, rules get broken.

So, after years of mobile phone development, not one manufacturer has been able to produce a mobile phone camera that produces a photo any better than my T95 that produces a 480x640 VGA image (menu on E-P1 taken with T95):

Are you sure that it's not a crop of the camera taken from a selfie?

At least yours look similar. Typical of having the phone too close & trying to sneak that photo without being caught.

That was the best focus I could get, moving it away didn't help, nor did moving it closer. But then I don't have a wiz bang mobile phone, it's purely for making phone calls. :)

I hope this 4k update rumour is true. I've never believed the "know-it-all-experts" telling (more like preaching) that it's impossible to add such thing via a firmware update. :biggrin: If the E-M1 got 4k then it would be 100% sure E-M5mk2 will have it too.
