Olympus E-M5 & BORG

1st report came from BORG Japan. According to them, E-M5 image is as sharp as X-Pro 1. Here is the evidence for that.

ISO 320  1/320″

ISO 500  1/800″

50FL + E-M5

I wish to get E-M5 and try to use myself ASAP. As one of BORG advantages is it allows to use most of cameras available in the market with the same optics. As a result, it make it easy to test the camera performance and compare camera to camera.

We also plan to convert E-M5 into UV/IR camera. The built-in EVF should be the strong tool for UV or IR imaging. Since the camera has the remote timer terminal,  E-M5 should be convenient to use for astrophotography too. The rumor says E-M5’s sensor might be Sony-made. (At least not Panasonic any more) If it is the case, the camera might be capable of handling extremely-low light condition like astro targets. Let me keep trying to find out.
