In this second part of our conversation with Finnish filmmaker Janne Amunét, he tells us a little more about his experience as a camera tester for the Olympus E-M1 MK II.
There are many ways to skin a cat, they say. And there are many ways to stabilise a moving camera: Steadycam, gimbal, dolly, slider… and in recent times, also the In-Body Image Stabilisation available in many modern cameras. In this part of our conversation with Janne, he tells us about his opinion of the excellent sensor stabilisation found on the new Olympus E-M1 MK II.
A few years ago, brushless gimbals took the market by storm, and it has got to the point where you can get a stabiliser for your DSLR or mirrorless for a relatively low cost. But as it becomes easier and easier to get similar results just by handholding the camera without having to worry about extra weight, power, or setup time, it feels almost certain that we will see a change in the visual language, as shooters come up with new ways to exploit what new cameras have to offer. Exciting times ahead indeed!
