    Here is a music video I shot entirely with the Olympus PEN PL-1.
    This is my first video production (bought the PEN mainly for photography) and it is far from perfect, but I am very surprised and satisfied with the quality of the video.

    The main problem is zooming and focusing while filming, so I avoided that as much as possible. I plan to make a follow focus to solve that problem.

    This is a Croatian band, and the words in the song talk about the lack of justice, so the motives in the video follow the theme. The video is shot in Croatia in three different cities.

    Thank you! :)
    It was shot with the Olympus kit lens 14-42mm.
    Although I do have some Minolta lenses, using only the kit lens was much simpler because it was a documentary style filming – there was no time to change lenses.

    Move to a msc lens it it will focus better for video. 14-150 or the new 14-42 MK2.

    thank you for your suggestion, but I still think that a smooth manual focus would be better.

    Do the msc lenses have the “searching” effect while focusing?
