I mean honest, constructive criticism. I ranted yesterday (and quite ridiculously), so today I’m going to be honest and thoughtful about this subject. Like many of you, I love my EM5. It’s a great camera and deserves all the “camera of the year” awards it’s getting. Probably most of us agree. But it’s not perfect, and I propose to consolidate some of its imperfections in this thread. Namely, I’d like to know what you all find frustrating about it. My list is quite small, so here goes: 1. It is too easy to “outrun” the control dials. I come from Nikon world, and I know Canons are the same: if you get to a comfort level where you are slamming the shutter/aperture dials around with lightning speed, the electronics of the Nikon/Canon camera bodies will never lose pace with your body movements. Alas, something in the OMD’s electronics is not as fast as it could be, and it will miss some of your clicks if you move too quickly. So it’s sort of a sign you have become one with your camera that you can think/move this fast, but then the OMD lets you down by not keeping up. Certainly this is not the biggest deal in the world, but it does bums me out. A little. 2. The menu structure. Enough said, you all know it, no need to beat this one. I’m used to it now. 3. The pre flash when using the FL-600R (and I assume other Oly flashes) in TTL mode. The time that elapses between shutter press, pre flash, then exposure is too long. You WILL get blinked eyes, not to mention that (not to repeat myself, but) when you get to that place of “being one with the camera,” these little things that slow you down and add to the process become bummers. Not deal breakers, but bummers. Of course by now most of us have learned this is a consequence of the reflectivity of digital sensors, that traditional TTL-OTF days of film doesn’t work, and we need a pre flash. So there is a delay added no matter what. And since we are talking mirrorless, it might also be a fact that the first-curtain-close-before-exposure adds an additional delay. I can’t say for sure, but my experience with the FL-600R and the OMD is let down by this. My direct comparison with TTL digital flash is with Nikon bodies, and I always complained about their too-long-for-pre-flash too, but they had two saving graces: (1) it was a little quicker, and (2) you could assign one of the function buttons to be “FV lock” that fired the pre flash, effectively measuring for exposure only once. Then assuming your subject and environment stayed relatively constant, you could fire away like it was a film camera with zero pre flash. Not totally off topic, while the OMD would definitely benefit from “FV lock” as well, the FL-600R has a WONDERFUL thrystor mode that effectively gets you away from the pre flash. I now use this almost exclusively. And furthermore, I have not seen a Nikon/Canon flash at this price point that also gave you the thrystor, so I almost consider this complaint totally moot. Except that thrystor mode isn’t quite as reliable as TTL mode, so I’m still complaining. Just a little. 4. That’s it for me, no other real complaints. 5. (Except for I’d like more video compression choices, other frame rates, I wish the camera came with the grip already… I digress).
