Movie image stabilization only works in the auto exposure mode. It records a video with a still image sandwiched in between. While, MP4 (.mp4) is a container file format, the videos recorded in.mp4 can be directly played on any devices. On phones and tablets, you can watch or download videos on Google Play or on iTunes. For the computer, there is no need for proprietary software like QuickTime, or special clips. The same formats work on any device from movie players to video editing software.
If you record a movie on the E-M1 with only audio, the image stabilization system can be used to some degree to reduce blur due to camera shake. In this example, let's assume you are shooting at 120fps with a shutter speed of 1/250. You handhold the camera and make a steep vertical ascent. The camera will automatically lower the shutter speed, to try to keep a steady video.
The camera is well worth buying if you plan to use it for video, which to be honest is all the way you need your camera. I did zero pre-production equipment and started with a camera with a mall shutter speed of 1/4000 and no native 4K video. I was able to record video with great quality and nice colors. That said, there are options to improve shooting quality, including the ability to get truly excellent audio even with a microphone not used for video. At least for video from the GH5, one of the two major choices for branded camera-to-lens adapters is the Rosco Tarara View and Focus Smart Adapter. I chose a GH5 kit with it and a cheap lens adapter, and was able to shoot 720p easily with a smooth 24 frames per second.
This is a cool 3.5mm remote headphone jack. If you can find it on ebay, it is worth more than the $3 it is worth working half as hard to find it. If you have bad luck and it falls off it is worth more than $10. 7211a4ac4a
