Olympus Pen E-P1 Sample HD Footage by TV Smith

The much anticipated Olympus EP-1 was unveiled today (16th June 2009). I took the camera for a test drive outside the launch venue and was quite pleased with the video results. Bear in mind this is a pre-production model and it is fitted with beta firmware.

The relatively lighter 1280 x 720 avi files of the EP1 are are quite painless to edit and the stereo audio is much better sounding than the rather muffled sounds of the Panasonic LX-3. But I found the E-P1 quite difficult to hold steady unlike the LX-3. Maybe I am not used to it yet. For most of the shots, I attached a very tiny tripod that I always carry in my bag.

One can zoom during recording but the kit lens' range is rather limited. Will upload more samples when I get hold of a fully ready model.

Playback Help: Mycen Videos are mostly presented in high quality widescreen 16:9 standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD), both in hi-fi stereo. By default, the embedded player here loads a standard quality 360p or 480p resolution to accommodate users with slower connections. To switch to higher quality and clearer playback, select the 720p or 1080p option (if available) on the bottom right of the player after pressing play. The transition to HQ or HD may take a few seconds. If things get stuck, just reload the page and try again.

Playing HD or HQ requires a reasonably fast internet connection and reasonably competent hardware for smooth playback. Firstly, let the player's pink loading line fill completely. If the video is still jerky when you replay after that, try closing other programs on your computer to free up resources. Even then, heavy Internet traffic during peak hours might still slow down some connections. If all else fails, simply revert to normal quality playback by clicking on the same button again.

In order to watch HD smoothly, you ought to have a newer version of Adobe Flash plug-in installed on your browser. Go here to download the latest version if your browser is not doing it automatically. Enjoy!
