    Alright, this has been bothering me.

    The new commercials shot for the E-PL1.
    In the commercials they say, "And the best part? This was shot with a PEN," or something like that.

    What setup or settings do they have to obtain video of that clarity? I know that when I record video on my E-P1 it almost always has a substantial amount of noise or grain (17mm kit lens).

    Screenshot from video recorded on my E-P1:

    There just seems to be a big difference in quality/clarity there.
    Yes, I have it in the highest available quality.
    The screenshot is a crop taken of video at it's actual resolution.

    good lighting helps...and probably high end 4/3rd or other lenses
