Cem:GH4 time laps function problem:
When the “daylight saving” option is selected at the time of setting the camera date&time, the previously set “camera time” is shifted according to the selected time zone. In this case, when the “start time” parameter of the “time Lapse function” is entered a specific start time, the camera wakes up at a later (or earlier depending on the time zone shift) time than specified by the start time.
In other words, it seems that the wake up module for “Time Lapse” function does not take the time zone shift into account and there is no word about this in the electronic manual.
When “daylight saving” option is not selected at the time of setting the “camera date&time”, the “time lapse” function “start time” parameter wakes up the camera at the specified time.

You didn’t see that coming: WSJ praises Olympus and blames Nikon strategy.

Today Nikon announced one of the most unexciting new cameras to date. A little updated D810 DSLR. But why should we care about that? Well read that:

WSJ is blaming Nikon’s strategy and praising Olympus! Here is what they write:

The market shows growth in just one category: “mirrorless” cameras. Nikon was among the last of major Japanese makers to release a mirrorless camera, and still offers only a handful of models. The company likely fears cannibalization of its high-end DSLRs, but its strategy seems not to be working. Nikon’s camera division, more than two-thirds of the company, posted a 9% revenue decline for the year through March.
Incoming chief executive Kazuo Ushida said the company plans to dive into medical equipment, in which it has no expertise…while rival Olympus is already a global leader in medical imaging, as well as in mirrorless cameras.

As we told you before Olympus “hopes” to reach a break even for the current fiscal year. The recent mirrorless worldwide market growth could help them to realize their goal.

Heather:We recently wrote an article called ‘Mirrorless Cameras for Professional Work: Where they prevail & where they fail’. Mathieu investigates a number of points we feel all professionals should carefully consider before dropping the DSLR for a mirrorless system. http://www.bestmirrorlesscamerareviews.com/2014/06/24/mirrorless-cameras-for-professional-work-where-they-prevail-where-they-fail/
