Olympus OM-D E-M5 iPad & iMovie compatibility

Olympus OM-D E-M5 review kitFinally got my hands on an Olympus OM-D E-M5 review unit, and just in time for it to join me on my trip to Melbourne for thedigitalshow.com.au

Having only had it for a few hours, (most of that spent packing and prepping my other camera gear & clothes) I’ve not actually gone shooting with it, but I did just spend a bit of time familiarizing myself (screwing around) at the desk and I’m impressed so far.

One thing of particular note, and usefulness to those like me, where my PEN E-P3 records video into AVCHD, the OM-D has stepped “back” to filing it’s video into .MOV files in H.264 (there’s also a motionJPG option for… I dunno, if you’re a complete moron)… which means, & I just tested this…
All video you record can be dumped to the iPad (via the camera connector kit/SDcard reader) and used in iMovie immediately! :D Very Handy

A full review of the OM-D E-M5 to come of course, aswell as lots of fun photography stuff from the digital show… Stay tuned (man… that phrase really had lost all relevance eh?)
