Deary me, cant believe you have said that a phone camera can be better than this. Are you telling me you can get the results on a titchy smartphone with a small sensor, never.

That's almost certainly someone who is comparing camera photos with filters on a 6 inch OLED screen, to camera photos with no post-processing on a desktop or laptop monitor.

Good deal, everything a beginner needs. Heat.
To be fair, I think this is the next best deal, given the £499 one has gone...

hotukdeals.com/dea…924

The 40-150 lens for £70 more than this is an absolte steal for anyone looking to buy this, as presumably you're going to want to invest in more lenses, and you won't find a telephoto lens new for £70 anywhere.

Taken me 3 days of thinking about it but finally ordered. It will be a good upgrade from my EPM-1. Thanks. Hopefully the 9% quidco will be ok.
Is it better than the iPhone camera?
Any thoughts on how worthwhile an upgrade this would be from the E-M10 mark 1?

Great camera, uses the micro 4/3 lense so a panasonic micro 4/3 lense will fit. The olympus lenses have image stabilisation in the camera body. The panasonics have it in the lens. So you are ok to use the panansonic lenses in the olympus but the other way round is not as good. Also 4K video.
I have a Canon 100D with quite a few lenses and have been thinking about purchasing a mirrorless camera for a while now but I'd say I'm a pretty good photographer and certainly more advanced than beginner level.

What would people suggest I get?

UKMaverick04/06/2020 16:07

That's exactly what I was about to say. Basically to upgrade from a 100d you'd really need to get a full framer to get much of an improvement in picture quality. If you're a decent photographer you should be able to get the best out of the 6d, and it's slightly less bulky than some other full frame cameras. Just be aware that EF-S lenses won't work on a full frame camera. They need EF. I currently have a 5d, 6d, 7d and a 1d and I like using the 6d the most. Expensive new but you can get them for not too silly money from the likes of MPB.
40976550-L4IH6.jpgI'm not sure that comparing an E-M10 with a Canon 6D is relevant. The Olympus is all about portability with adequate quality and performance. The size/weight difference is even more significant when you add a comparable lens. I know which I'd rather carry.

We weren't comparing this olympus with a 6D. We were answering a different question entirely...

Just to throw my thoughts in, my first proper camera was the Canon 100D, I just upgraded to the Fujifilm X-T30 and love it. Still APS-C, not full frame like cameras others have suggested it but I love it. Nice and small, mirrorless, feels a lot better built than the mostly plastic 100d. If you wanted to you can still use your EF and EF-S lenses with this camera but you need a pretty pricey adapter at around £150 if you want full autofocus etc.

I also looked at this camera in the deal but decided I didn't want a smaller sensor than I already had, but still think it's a great camera, especially at this price.

My Panasonic Lumix GX80 has what's called 5-Axis IS in the body. Works really well with the primes I use it with.

I have a 7D with various lenses but find it quite cumbersome, especially on a long walk so a few years ago bought a Panasonic Lumix G3 2nd hand off EBay. I now have the G6 plus a 12-60mm lens and have just purchased a 45-175mm lens as well. These two lenses with my G6 are probably lighter than the 7D body on it's own.
The 7D takes sharper pictures but for portability I seem to use my Panasonic more and have had some really good results. Also bear in mind that because of the crop factor a 12-60mm Micro 4/3 lens is equivalent to a 24-120mm lens on a 35mm camera and the 45-175mm lens is equivalent to a 90-350mm lens so the two lenses cover a massive range.

Decent step up - 5 axis stabilisation and a much nicer viewfinder. But the MKII was about as good - I went for that rather than the III which dumbs down some of the options a little. Amazing camera though

yes, now I'm sitting on a6400 with selection of lenses, comparing to Olympus - it's night and day.

I was not able to see any striking difference in picture quality between (much cheaper) Pen series and Mark III. AFAIK the only difference is general video capability and OIS which on Olympus M3 works surprisingly well.

Build quality is exceptional and looks great resting on the shelf.
But thats where magic ends.

Olympus as a company is struggling in general, they are lacking innovation, price proposition is questionable and their direct competition is way ahead. Glad they have cheap PEN series, otherwise they would be seeking for cozy space on the bottom between Kodak and Nokia.

Not very. Still the same old 16mp sensor though some additional focus points and other minor upgrades. If you already have a Mk1 I'd stick with it.

Horses for courses. Most people can't be bothered to do what's required to get good with an actual camera. And why should they if they're just taking snapshots that they want to look ok.

In all fairness with a camera set on auto the results should be better than a phone camera without any post processing, you are talking about a massive sensor compared to a phone as well as a lens that should be far superior to the tiny bit of glass on a phone. I would expect to take 2 exact shots, one with a phone and one with a camera, the results should be easy to differentiate, the problem for most users now a days is that is not the case just taking a standard photo in reasonable light, most will find a good camera phone produces better results.

What on Earth are you on about?! The PEN uses the exact same sensor as this camera. Yet you criticise this camera and seem to like the PEN’s picture quality.

And if you compare the prices, you’ll find the PEN isn’t much cheaper at all. It’s just a different body with different target audience - if you want a viewfinder, a more ergonomic grip, a more weighty feel, then you’d prefer this camera, regardless of features it has for video etc. If you want a small travel camera, then you’d prefer the PEN.

The price difference between the two cameras is practically irrelevant when you factor in the rest of the kit costs. A minimal set of lenses costs a lot more than either of the bodies.

To compare either of these cameras to an iPhone camera is absurd. I have an iPhone 11 and the camera is brilliant - but all the magic is done in post-processing and even the relatively small sensors of MFTs carry a huge amount more detail.

What your comment perhaps should have said: If you don’t like photo editing and prefer to have photos ready in their final form straight after shooting, then use a phone camera, not a MFT. But I really thought that advice was a given, and it’s certainly not specific to this camera.
Edited by: "edanfalls" 5th Jun
It's a great camera for the money, stuffed full of features. It records 28mins of 4K video continuously which is hard to find at this price point. The only negatives in my experience of it is that the longest exposure is 60 seconds outside of liveview and that there really isn't proper tethering software for it.

That's all image processing though and it's a matter of taste, my phone rarely takes an image I'd be happy with if it came out of my camera. But if you like the look that your phone produces then fine. Also if you look at those images on anything bigger than a phone the phone image is going to look like hot garbage.

Is image processing what you would do any way in something like photoshop, is this something the phone is doing for you because it has the power to process an images unlike the camera. Also I am not defending phone images over a camera but I can assure you without a doubt I put images on my 17" high def computer screen and far from what you say about them looking like garbage, I am amazed how sharp they look. Like I say I am not defending either a camera or a phone but saying only what I see.
Only 16 MP? My phone does 50
