    Anybody catch Panasonic GF1 on the latest episode of Girls (HBO show)? It was used for quite a while by one of the main characters. GF1 with 20mm/1.7 lens, worn with original neckband with GF1 markings. I almost thought it was GX7 at first (product placement I thought) but then noticed that silver vertical band on the grip and then the writing on the neck strap. so, old model, probably not product placement then? :confused:
    Anyway, pretty cool to see on such a popular TV show.

    I too noticed the GF1. Someone on set must shoot m4/3. That or one of the props people thought the GF1 was a good cutesie hipster camera. :D

    Yo "Girls", I'm really happy for you, Ima let you finish, but Taylor Swift just had one of the greatest inadvertant ads for m4/3 of all time. ONE OF THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME!

    Don't worry guys. If Taylor gets her camera wet, she'll shake it off :rolleyes: :biggrin:

    Huh, E-M10 and 14-42 pancake, not weather sealed at all. Somehow I expected to see an E-M5 and 12-50 or something...

    No, it seems to be E-M1 with the EZ 14-42

    That's the conclusion I reached too, in the top pick you can see that it has the grip by how she's holding it...

    My second thought was "Taylor, you're a trillionare, upgrade that lens." I guess for pics to throw on twitstagram the 14-42 would do just fine though eh?

    wasn't Clooney caught "in the wild" sporting an E-M5?

    I'm not sure what's saddest - the thought that showing cameras on a trashy TV show matters, or the fact that it's probably true.
