In this episode of cinema5D On the Go recorded at Photokina 2016, we talk to Finnish filmmaker Janne Amunét, a camera operator and DoP with experience in features, music videos and commercials, who was approached by Olympus to test the new E-M1 MK II M43 camera.
In this first part of our conversation with Janne, he tells us about his beginnings in image-making with (surprise-surprise) the Canon 5D Mark II. Soon after his first videos made it to MTV Europe, his career moved along at a speed that many shooters out there can only dream of.
He also shares some great tips with us about limiting yourself regarding gear in order to really learn about the equipment you use.
Finally he teases a little bit about his experience testing the Olympus E-M1 MK II, which, due to its impressive in-body image stabilisation, is in his opinion “the best run and gun camera in the market today”. Janne has years of experience as a SteadyCam operator… Could he be onto something?
Definitely make sure to tune in for the next episode of cinema5D On the Go, where we discuss how the Olympus E-M1 MK II plays with stabilised M43 lenses, gimbals, and much more!
