"Micro Four Thirds" - Digital Photography Podcast 216

Olympus E-PL1 Micro Four Thirds Camera

Micro Four Thirds cameras by Olympus and Panasonic are having an impact on digital photography. These "mirrorless" DSLRs provide high quality images and interchangable lenses, like regular SLRs, but are more compact. In this podcast I talk about Micro Four Thirds, what it is, and what's unique about these devices.

Just finished listening to your piece on µ4/3. As someone who needs bi-focals — which means an LCD is hard to use — I'd like to hear a piece on compact EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens) cameras. Of course it will help to know more about the Samsung and Sony offerings.

The Panasonic is the most appealing (G1/G2) at the moment, but many in the works. The speed (of focusing and startup, not lens) appeals to me. I too would prefer sensor IS, but understand Panasonic's needs for video.
