    Black Olympus M1 purchased on Ebay from a S.Korean seller. I received the camera about three weeks ago and put 819 shutter actuations on it. It comes with everything from the factory in original box. The box is the kit lens package, but the lens is not included. Strap and cables have never been opened.

    Condition: the camera is mint in every single way. Not even the tiniest scuff anywhere on the body. Again, mint-mint. It was brand new, sealed package when I received it.

    Reason for sale: not my style. While this is an amazing camera that outputs fabulous pictures, this is not my type. I realized I miss my old manual focus lenses and I'll go back to Sony A7 and my Canon FD lenses.

    Possible trades: the only trade I consider is for a Canon FD 85/L or 50/L



    I only ship in US. Shipping and Paypal fees included in my price. Shipping only to a confirmed Paypal address, no exceptions. If you make the payment and your Paypal is not confirmed, I will refund your money.


    $599 shipped and Paypaled

    What a great price and the camera looks to be in great condition. Too bad I already have one.

    Thanks but the only trade I consider is for some new or old manual lenses. And I mean good ones.
    Here are a few ideas: voigtlander M mounts 35/1.4 or 40/1.4, canon FD L lenses (not interested in EF mount), Leica R.
    One more thing: I would consider a trade only with an established member.

    I have a 12-40mm and a 60 macro which I'll post tomorrow

    Obviously not. It's not like Olympus has two different factories, one for Korea and one for US.




    For now the camera is pending a trade.

    Actually not a dumb question. There may be differences.

    For Panasonic direct imports have different rates for video.
    Resolutions: 3840 x 2160 (30, 25, 24, 20fps) 1920 x 1080 (60, 50, 30, 25fps) 1280 x 720 (60, 50, 30, 25fps), 640 x 480 (30, 25 fps)

    US spec is the 60/30, imports are 50/25. I don't see these differences listed in E-M1 reviews, but they are noted on E-M5 mII. There may be others but I've owned two import Panasonic bodies and never found this video difference or any other difference that mattered.

    Though I almost never shoot video, I've never heard about people using these cameras to shoot clips without running them through a basic video processing software. You can stitch PAL and NTSC and output whatever fits your style, 24fps, 25fps, 30, 50, 60. You can output PAL, NTSC or region free clips. Obviously, the 1920x1080 resolution in the camera is the same no mater where you buy it.

    Agreed, Just pointing out that there may be differences. But as I said, they never mattered to me.

    .









    edit: the M1 is pending local sale






    Well, guys....I did some research and the Olympus M1 doesn't have a choice between PAL and NTSC.
    The M1 only records 30fps at 1920x1080 no matter where you buy your camera in the world
    I even shot two short movies and they are both 30p. See the screen shots down this page.


    Here are some notes I found on imaging-resources:
    "Full HD shooting is limited to 1920 x 1080 at 30 frames-per-second -- that's it, no smooth 60p or even film-like 24p. The camera does allow for connecting an external mic for better audio, which is nice but expected on a camera in this class. You can also shoot Time-Lapse Video at reduced resolution, and record in Aperture-priority, Shutter-priority and Manual exposure modes. If Olympus could just have put a bit more into the E-M1's movie-making skills, the camera really could have been a professional's dream come true. As it stands, the camera is merely decent for recording consumer-level videos."


    And here are the screen shots from those short movies I recorded, one MOV (1920x1080) and the other one AVI (avi is limited at 1280x720)
