    Not as versatile as an SLR, but mountains higher than a point and shoot, September 10, 2009

    I needed something decent to have in my laptop bag when i wasn’t lugging around all my SLRs and Lenses. This camera seems to be the perfect blend SLR and Point and shoot. The f/2.8 lens allow me to take great, non-flash photos in low-light situations without an obscene amount of noise. It has a great, solid build and with a decent amount of weight, it doesn’t feel like it will fall apart at any minute like your point-and-shoot. I would say if you are in the market for something more advanced than a point and shoot, but nice and small, pick it up.

    Also, I believe this is the smallest device to be able to take 720p video at f/2.8 (m4/3) with stereo audio. Great video device if you ask me.

    Reminds me of an old retro rangefinder, as intended, September 28, 2009

    This camera has been a very pleasant surprise for me. The low light capability is extraordinary and as for framing pictures in bright sunlight I am very glad I got the optional optical viewfinder that fits in the hotshoe. But the picture sharpness and color quality are breathtaking. There is a learning curve on the menus but once you get used to it there are many in-camera scene types to fool with, such as old-fashioned grainy black and white. Most importantly, it is ultra-portable and unobtrusive in a good-looking way. I am thrilled with it!

    Nice camera, but has its drawbacks, December 19, 2010

    As a owner of a Canon DSLR, I feel both love and annoyance towards this camera. I bought this camera mostly for its portability, and it is good. I do love its small size (with the 17 mm lens), and I can bring it everywhere (which I will not do with my Canon). And I love its look too.

    I also find the menu easy to use. The super control panel allows one to control nearly everything needed in taking a photo, and it is easy to access. There are also many interesting features not existent in my Canon.

    It does have its drawbacks. You would not expect the image quality as decent as an APS-C or full-frame camera, and it is apparent, esp. in low-light shots. There are more serious ones:

    1) Slow focusing. It is not at all comparable to a DSLR, but more like a point-and-shoot DC. The continuous AF is even worse. At least the Fujifilm and Nikon DCs I used before did not continuously refocus when the object did not move. For single AF, the lens will move even when the object is full in focus. There are reviews that the Panasonic micro four thirds are much better in this aspect.

    2) Slow processing speed. While there are interesting features (like the art filters), they are slow and consumes a lot of battery power. It makes them less useful.

    3) Bad SD video. While I like the HD video results, SD simply sucks. It is apparent the downscaling is done badly without proper anti-aliasing, and a lot of artefacts are visible. You simply should not shoot videos in SD.

    UPDATE: After using it for half a year, I think I like this camera. I also tried a Panasonic telephoto lens, and can confirm that the number 1 issue, slow focusing, is only related to the lens. Both Olympus and Panasonic have some nice lenses that can work fast and silently on E-P1.

    So I am changing my rating to four stars.
