I am starting to really like the EM5II for casual video. I feel that the digital crop/zoomfeature (function button 2) is a really amazing feature since it practically gives you 2 different focal lengths to use instead of one. I was worried that the quality of the cropped video would be poor, but it seems good, and fits well with the rest of the video. I wish there was a way to change the crop ratio. I bought the Tascam TM-2X microphone that I tried out here. It's a very small microphone and has good reviews. I turned down the in-camera microphone all the way down, though I am not sure if that does anything here, and after some testing left the level for ext microphone in the camera menu at 0. Volume for external microphone cannot be changed during filming. Not sure why, the internal microphone levels can be adjusted during filming. Sound seems a lot better with the Tascam, more natural and wide, with better separation. The IBIS is as great as everyone says it is. Balances the video very smoothly without doing anything. With Panasonic + primes I used to carefully balance the camera against the body or forehead and try not to breathe. well, no more of that For this I used the selective color mode in camera to make it pretty much black and red. Seemed to fit the feel of the show. EM5II allows ISO up to 6400 in video mode, which is higher than GX7 at 3200. The lens used is 20mm/1.7. I used the AF+MF mode, but I only used the manual focus. I think it came out pretty well. I did no post-processing.
