    Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review: Digital Photography Review

    Good for
    Those who prefer viewfinder shooting, want a relatively compact system camera without sacrificing external controls of a DSLR.
    Not so good for
    Sports and fast action demanding very fast burst rates, very low light, and users with little interest in customizing camera functions.

    Blimey, dpreview have done an actual review? I thought it stood for digital preview these days!

    It's definitely pushed m4/3rds still photography up to the highest standards of build and performance possible, and represents the sweet spot of performance, size and cost for me.

    Very happy with it... now bring on the fully electronic shutter and pdaf at every sensel - not for focusing speed, but for full (narrow) depth of field variability after the shot!

    Cheers

    Brian, Do not know what that (underlined portion) means. Please explain.

    Hi Vivek,

    Olympus made a patent application for a sensor sub layer which provided pdaf depth sensing at every location.

    If you had a depth map to go with an image, I believe you could develop an image to magnify the out of focus areas such that you could simulate an extremely narrow depth of field.

    What do you think? Would that be theoretically possible?

    I guess this would be of huge interest for video too?

    Cheers

    Thank you, Brian.

    Yes, that is very useful, albeit involves a lot of processing. With the current chip (even iphones have 64bit processors nowadays!) scenario, quite doable.

    You're welcome

    Here's the patent application
