22 Reasons For

Olympus Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

Olympus is one of the superior digital camera brands according to average reviews from owners and experts, and Olympus also has good ratings for its MILC digital cameras.

Supports Full HD Video

Unlike most of the other MILC digital cameras that have been available for the last year which do not support Full HD video, the Olympus PEN-F supports Full HD video.

We compared all the other cameras which support Full HD video to this digital camera and we think the Sony Alpha A6300[plb_3305928_price], and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8[plb_2956893_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Olympus PEN-F supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other MILC digital cameras that have been around for the last year also support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of alternative digital cameras which support WiFi connectivity currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Sony Alpha A6300[plb_3305928_price], or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8[plb_2956893_price].

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4R[plb_3539228_price] is also worth considering.

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is the most commonly supported memory card on MILC digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory and we think the Lumix DMC-GX8[pl_2956893_price], and the Lumix DMC-GX8[pl_2956893_price] both from Panasonic which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If the memory card type of this MILC camera is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the Sony Alpha A6300[plb_3305928_price] (MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo HX|SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.
