What is a micro four thirds camera?
Micro four thirds is a system developed jointly between Olympus and Panasonic in 2008 with a number of benefits over both DSLR and compact digital cameras. Being mirrorless, they do away with the internal mechanism found in DSLRs which means they are smaller and lighter. The shorter flange distance means the lenses can be mounted closer to the focal plane, offering arguably sharper images from edge to edge. A huge number of micro four thirds lenses are available for this range, which are interchangeable between Lumix and Olympus bodies.
