    Comparison of the Specs: Panasonic Lumix G9 vs. Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II

      Gear

    Yesterday, Panasonic presented the G9 model – the camera which may become an interesting alternative for the Olympus system, particularly the OMD-EM1 Mark II model. In the table below you can find a comparison of specification of both models. However, it is worth remembering that the Olympus camera has been on the market for more than a year.

    The comparison of Panasonic G9 and the GH5 model can be found here.

      Having in mind the users of the flagship Olympus OM-D E-M1X body, which was described yesterday, the producer introduces a new FL-700WR flash, a wireless FC-WR flash commander and the FR-WR receiver.
       
      Olympus FL-700WR is a small but versatile and effective flash. Its body has been sealed and it is resistant to splashes and dust - the flash will work in very low temperatures. Its maximum guide number is 42 (ISO 100) and the reload time is 1.5s, which enables taking serial photographs with the use of flash with the speed of 10f/s.
       
      Thanks to the use of radio communication, the flash can be used as a flash commander but also as a flash with the in-built receiver. With the use as the commander, the flash will connect with three groups of receivers and with the unlimited number of flashes. The flash user can choose the group which is to be activated and the flash power. In the RC mode (optical communication), flashes can be used in the "slave flash" mode. The "Multi Flash" mode enables catching movement thanks to multiple flashes while taking photographs with long exposition and the bulb time. In order to choose the settings adjusted optimally to the photographed object, we can choose the intensity, interval (frequency) and the number of taken photographs in a series. With the use of FL-700WR, we will use High Res Shot, Focus Stacking and Focus Bracketing functions offered by OM-D E-M1X and OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera.
       

      1). Olympus FL-700WR Flash
       
      Super PP mode: it's a mode in which we can synchronize the flash time with the shutter speed shorter than the shortest flash synchronization time for a given camera model.
       
      A possibility of synchronization with the first or second curtain - the flash takes place during the opening or closing the shutter.
       
      TTL mode: the flash makes a pre-flash in order to measure the demanded intensity of a given flash.
       
      LED lighting: the flash has been equipped with the lighting which is useful during taking photographs. The angle of the light beam in the distance of 1m amounts to 77° and the light intensity to 100 luxes.
       

      2). Olympus FL-700WR Flash
       
      The angle of reflection can be regulated by 180° horizontally and 90° vertically. With the use of the reflected light plate and the diffuser, the angle of the flash is equivalent to the 7mm focal length (35mm equivalent: 14mm)
       
      Automatic zoom: during the use of the lenses with the focal length of 12 - 75mm (the eqivalent of 35mm: 24-150mm) we can change the angle of the flash.
       
      At the end of charging, the flash generates an audible sound.
       

      3).  Olympus FC-WR Flash Commander
       
      With the use of the wireless FC-WR flash commander and the wireless FR-WR receiver, we can control many flashes from the level of the camera. The commander can connect with three groups of receivers and with the unlimited number of flashes. The FC-WR commander has been equipped with independent buttons of groups A, B and C, which enables its convenient configuration  - we will also adjust flash intensity and choose a proper photography mode. Both in FC-WR and FR-WR we will easily set groups and channels. Similarly to the flash described above, the devices of a new remote triggering system are resistant to splashes, dust and low temperatures up to -10°C.
       

      4). Olympus FC-WR Sealings 
       
      Olympus FL-700WR flash, the wireless FC-WR flash commander and the FR-WR receiver are to appear on sales at the end of February. Their prices remain unknown.
