Olympus OM-D E-M1X Digital Camera Review in Marrakesh, Morocco

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


For the first time, Clifton Cameras review a camera out of the confines of our native Gloucestershire.

The release of the new Olympus E-M1X micro four-thirds camera seemed an appropriate occasion to fly to Marrakesh in Morocco where the vibrant culture and bustling souks would make for a photographic buffet and the perfect place to test a new camera!

Talk to us in the comments section! Let us know if you have any questions or are interested in purchasing this camera.

Now let us stop playing word games and lying,making stuff up,just because we love a camera format.My DSLR is BIG,HEAVY,great IBIS,sealed,knobs,dials,can be customized,great battery,2 card slots,low light monster,excellent images IN CAMera.Now I have shot and owned Olympus,then Sony,etc,etc,and now my Pentax with a Sony sensor.I dont complain about size/weight because I am a strong enough man to carry it,swing it,flip it,and use it all damn day.I LOve the concept of the EM1X,yet not for $3000,because for a bit more,I can get another DSLR,like a Nikon D850,or Sony mirrorless full frame and a battery grip.SAt this point i need to try it,use it,and then make a final decision,based on the price/performance points.Now if you do not own Full Frame or know an owner of one personally,you do not know his views nor his intentions,so calling it a trend is neither anyone's business,since you didnt BUY it,nor does it have to be their reasoning.In other words,if I have FF and then buy a Canon M50,that doesnt make it a trend or fad,it's what I chose to spend my money on,for my personal preferences/reasons.I will shoot with my phone,My Sony Bloggie,my fim cameras,or an Instamatic,if I choose to,and like i said,as long as it meets my needs,that's my business.

I meet people with all sorts of cameras all day,here in NYC,and I am always impressed by people who have taken the step to photography,making videos,and creating any art,with whatever tools.It makes no logical sense to compare things which are NOT the same,so going on about APS-C,medium format,or full frame has NOTHING to do with Micro 4/3.A Lexus and a Camry are BOTH great,yet they are not the same,so there's no need to be comparative and defensive when someone doesnt use or like what you dont,especially since you're not paying for it.I could care less about Sony or full frame when I am watching a tutorial about an OLympus camera.I want to ONLY know what IT does,maybe compared to the models before it,and I want to make sure it performs well.I bought my DSLR and one thing I like is the ability to crop down,because if I started from APS-C i cannot go up to FF.For most shooters and clients,Micro 4/3 is more than enough,and these cameras are getting so damn good now,you can buy one and keep it in the loop for many years,with firmware updates.You can mix match and use all these formats,so babbling on about what is better is a lie and MYTH,because it depends on needs,workflow,and preferences…

Here is the accurate information>>>>
What is a Full-Frame Digital SLR?

A full-frame digital SLR camera has a sensor that's about the same size as 35mm film.

This means that a full-frame camera has zero crop factor or a focal length multiplier of one. A 50mm lens on a full-frame SLR captures images just like a 50mm lens on a film SLR camera.

The Benefits of Full-Frame

The main issue associated with SLRs with smaller sensors is that wide-angle lenses don't quite the same view of the world when attached to one of these cameras.

Let's assume for a moment that we're using a lens on a cropped sensor digital SLR that has a 1.6x focal length multiplier.

Since a portion of the image projected onto the camera's sensor is getting cropped, that wide angle lens isn't so wide anymore. If the lens has a fixed focal length of 20mm (which is pretty wide in the world of film SLR cameras) it captures images more like a 32mm lens on the digital camera (not so wide anymore).

But on a full-frame SLR, that 20mm lens is STILL a 20mm lens.

Benefit #1: full-frame SLRs can use standard wide-angle lenses to capture dramatic landscapes and building interiors.

This means that full-frame digital SLRs really benefit photographers who take a lot of wide-angle pictures. If you're into portraits or wildlife photography, then getting the full view with wide angle lenses is less of a benefit.

For wildlife photography in particular (where you need to use extreme telephoto lenses to get close to your subjects) a full-frame camera is counter-productive, since it eliminates the artificial zoom that you get with cropped sensor SLRs.

But there's a second benefit of full-frame digital SLR cameras that make them appealing to any type of photographer:

Benefit #2: since a full-frame sensor is physically larger than other digital sensors, it can capture larger, higher quality images (especially in dim light).

full frame is the digital equivalent of the 35mm film cameras

Armand Di Meo says:

I think Olympus got it right by bucking the full-frame trend and sticking with micro 4/3. All of the other birds could be flying in the wrong direction. I originally questioned why Olympus would go with such a large (for them) body but I see the point that pros would not take a reallly small body seriously. Also, the battery grip is a real plus. Olympus may not take over the pro market but I think this camera will be a success for them and insure the survival of micro 4/3. I have always admired Olympus for doing things differently.

Michael Mystro Pierce says:

Did I detect a bit of attitude from this host at the very beginning lol. You came in wrong lol. Nothing is going to be bigger than this camera in it's current form so your statement made no sense….Fact! $3000 U.S dollars for a micro 4/3 camera in 2019, LMBO #Outofyourcrazyassmind.

Manny Vids says:

shots look amazing! people who make a big deal over Full Frame don't understand photo sensor and image processing technology.

David Harrison says:

I am a Olympus user and have been for over 10 years but cannot see this camera selling. Its competing with full frame weather you like it or not.

B LO says:

I believe it has 7 stop ibis, body alone cipa rating.

citizenespresso says:

Still s**t IQ because of old tiny sensor and old processor (s). Old technology EVF, poor LCD, average video mode, big and heavy body, absurdly high price. New af system deserves for attention only. E-M1X will be the biggest fail of the year.

Joe Marano says:

Agree with the sensor size rant lol

Gerald Braun says:

You are spot on! I don't know why some of the reviewers just are not getting it. Thanks for a extraordinary review.

Astronaut Ninja says:

This camera was designed with the professional in mind. Not youtube content creators. However, a full-frame is most definitely targeted towards youtubers.

Gordon Shumway says:

Btw full frame is not really full frame… One could say the ultimate full frame is. Big a** digital scanning back or at least digital medium format.

Olympus and micro 4/3rds is full frame for it was designed from its outset as a standard sensor size.

OMD em-1x can go anywhere and everywhere shoot anything and everything and other so-called 35 mm full frame pro grade cameras.

In the right hands any including micro 4/3rds users will give images most any situation requires.

The thing is even with a built in grip 2 – EM-1x and bucket of lenses and even flash can fit in one modest gear bag. That has a real worth for long and prolonged shooting.
