Olympus OM-D EM-5 Micro Four Thirds Interchangeabl&hellip by Olympus
Although advertised as 'New', the box containing the camera, and it's accessories, was unsealed.

The camera's firmware was Version 1.2 dating from July 2012.
Having downloaded the Olympus Digital Camera Updater, updating the firmware to the current version 2.0 was easy and straight forward.

Canton DM 9 Flat Wall Mounted TV Soundbar - Black by Canton

Why purchase the JVC GC-PX100EU rather than the more widely publicised Canon, Panasonic, and Sony models?

I thought long, and hard, especially having read adverse reports of the Camcorder suffering from Chromatic Aberration, before deciding to buy the JVC.

My reasons for purchase were the overall design of the camera, it's light weight, the thoughtful design touches such as the shade for the LCD screen, and the control knob for changing functions, and the excellent video quality exhibited by clips on YouTube.

I have only had the camcorder for a short period of time.

Early thoughts are that the resolution, and sensitivity to touch, of the LCD… Read more
