    I would like to know which micro 4/3 camera, be it Olympus or Panasonic, can shoot at 60 frame per seconds.

    Anyone can help me with that?

    Thanks

    Still or video ?

    Looks like the latest crop from both manufacturers will do 60fps video with Panasonic leading (gx-1/g5/gh3 & em-5).

    20fps still at reduced resolution seems to be the limit for the newer cameras.

    You might want to check dpreview or snapsort to compare models and features.

    The E-M5 can't do 60 unfortunately, only 30 fps :(

    (and yes, it's in video)

    The OM-D does shoot 60 frames per second but not at its highest resolution though.

    Can someone explain to me then how to do it? Even when I shoot at 720P which is supposed to be at 60 fps if this article is right Olympus OM-D E-M5 Camera Video - Review, when I open the sequence in Premier Pro, it tells me it's 29.97 fps :/

    The E-M5 (and many other cameras) can put the footage in a 720p 60fps wrapper for TV playback, but there's usually a footnote somewhere that says "sensor readout 30fps", so it's not really 60fps footage. The only mu-4/3 cameras that I know for sure can do HD at a real 60fps are the GH2 (in 720p only) and the GH3.

    A mess of them shoot 720p60.

    To the best of my knowledge, the only m43 cameras that shoot 1080p60 video are the Panasonic GH3 and AF100.

    The GH-1 can also do 60fps at 720p.
