PS: It's a Holiday movie! For connection errors, etc. Achssprüngen I ask for your understanding.

As I wander the Heilbronner Weg, an alpine trail in the Allgäu Alps wish I was looking for a small camera with video function, or camcorder. As a press photographer I take pictures with Nikon D700, therefore, could not rely on a Canon D Mark II with video function.

Since I had to carry my luggage in the mountains for three days on the back, the technique should not be all too big and heavy. In addition, the camera should have a good automatic mode, on the hiking trail you do not have a lot of time and space for manual experiments.

The choice: SonyTG3 (and there I would still have to carry a separate camera), or the brand new Olympus E-P1. I bought the E-P1 in combination with the standard optics 3,5-5,6 / 14-42, which provided an excellent image quality for the photos, which I now can sell, maybe.

Now to the video function:
The automatic transmission works very well, we have (a choice between "A" and "P" mode and a few gimmicks, such as pinhole camera, reminds me s.meine Toykamera Holga) and rich colors, soft lighting, etc.

I filmed with aperture priority mode "A" and automatic white balance. Unfortunately you only see the aperture value in the display (and there is no separate viewfinder). One notices with fast movements such as water or flying helicopter, the exposure times are very high - it jerky. Or neutral density filter helps to dim before the Optics. But you can see the shutter value does not appreciate is announced.

The image quality and metering for the videos is on the E-P1 very good, I had to s.and (s.The exposure compensation, you must use to set before the trigger). On average, one then sees s.Computerbildschirm a fairly balanced picture, I do not have to color and tonal corrections rare. So a good video picture out of box.

The sound is very good for a video DSLR - Microphones are directed forward. The autofocus can be heard and, unfortunately, synonymous with a high cracking just before the end of each scene. This must be repaired in the cut.

With the AEL-AFL button can be shifted during the shoot, the sharpness, but the pump once AF and the AF-hum is annoying. We can refocus synonymous manual, but the display is not sharp enough to really, there is no alignment and the Drehweg of Optics is very long. In permanent AF should be abandoned because of the noise, a new optics with ultrasonic motor would be better.

The E-P1 is very good in the hand, all functions are achieved without the menu. There are two rotating wheels for quick access to time (; Photo function) and Aperture.

Although I have made an extra removable battery, the Battery was photographed and filmed during frequent s.berger about 2 days. It was only during the descent s.3. Day I had to change.

Plus points:
- Very good video quality and Stillimage
- Low weight and size
- Still a large sensor
- Good sound
- Very good automatics
- Good handling
- Interchangeable
- High data rate
- Long battery life
(- Seen in white uncanny knack off)

Minuses
- Only 30P
- (No viewfinder; habit thing - you can work with the display)
- (No tilting screen, the camera size was not different)
- No control functions except manual aperture, focus and white balance (and perhaps there are times a new firmware, which the ausbügelt)
- Noisy AF (noise, USM-Optics buy)
- AF Pumps
- No connection for external Microphone. (; if need an MP3 recorder for the sound use)

Conclusion:
The Olympus E-P1 is a very good compromise for the ambitious photographer who wishes to turn synonymous times like a Holiday movie or szenischne Short Film. The ge

Thanks for the report. The video quality is more than useful. Only the flicker of edges bother me.

The video does make you want the trip. A map where the well is located would have been great.

Is not it true that one can fix the exposure in video mode (; AE-Lock)? This "rumor" has previously prevented me from Purchase.

Frankly I'm of the image quality (not so thrilled, I never imagined the original MOV file considered). The actual resolution seems to be significantly lower than 1280x720, there has been quite a while sharpening. Was it the camera or in the PP?

PS: I hope your friend has survived the trip because he s.end is pretty hobbled.

Nöö, there are all 1280x720 pixels here ...
How do you get it, it would be missing pixels?

How did you know that everyone is there? The video looks to me as if it was of a lower resolution upscaled because detailed positions are very obscure and not further explicable due to a sharpening rather flicker.

If there is missing pixels are not s.der Camera. The project setting is Apple ProRes 422, 1280x720 30P. Perhaps I erred in converting the Quicktime conversion is 631x355 (;) current size. Have I made a mistake?

Yes, my buddy got a few years ago for a sports scoreboard on his foot and see at the foot started to hurt. The tour is synonymous very stressful.

Yes, we can not fix the exposure, unfortunately, is not synonymous with holding down the AEL button-like when you shoot.
