Share

Some news for all Lumix Video Shooters & Photographers:. A new version of the IOS Field Monitor app is now available. Many new features added:

 -Hide most of buttons on double touch on display
– Full focus control for manual focus with m43 lenses
– Full magnifier support with touch – it is awesome to have Focus Peaking, Zebra and Magnifier support on a large iPad screen!
– Performance further enhanced – I guess that I was able to minimize the lag as much as possible!
And the creator is also heavily working on the Android app so it will have the same set of features soon! And LUT apply feature to support VLog is already in Beta for IOS!
And a goodie for the Photographers: a free version of Lightroom Plugin which supports the extraction of images from 4K/6K video files. See the user guide here: https://www.minaxsoft.com/products/lrffmpeg/
The Plugin can be downloaded in the Shop for free!

Plenty of news on the facebook E-M1II group and the GH5 group.

Toivo:This not a rumor, but my wish to Olympus, Panasonic and others:
MFT is almost complete:
there are extreme rectilinear wide angles down to 7 mm, there are extreme fisheye lenses (Entaniya), there are extreme macros with quite more than 1:1 scale.
But there is a lack of an ultra-telephoto lens.
You should make a 1,000 mm (= 2,000 mm on full frame) with f-value about 1:10 and autofocus.
Contrary to phase detection, contrast autofocus could work even at such low (of luminosiy) f-values. 1.000 mm lenses with better f-values, at this focal lenght nobody could pay.
Could be a catadioptric one. In the past Minolta has shown that catadioptrics with autofocus are possible.
Thanks!

Our reader Michael sent me this:

A friend of mine gave me a self designed double lens cap for Micro-Four-Thirds, which I’ve testet for some weeks now. It is really cool, and now he recently started to sell it via Shapeways. Maybe that’s interesting for your readers?
He has also designed some other stuff, like very compact lens hoods for some Olympus lenses. Just take a look:
