Jurek (video on top): “Still loving the GH4/SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 combination. Although slightly overshadowed by the recent Voigtlander 10.5mm release (purely a numbers game), I cannot get enough of how well this lens and camera combination performers. Hoping to be able to fly the combo on a CAME-TV Single 3-axis gimbal when it finally arrives, but in the meantime here’s some footage from a trip to Saint Martin earlier in the year. https://vimeo.com/133807078”
Fredrik: “I just finished my first food video and want to ask you if you could share it with your readers. The video was shot with two GH3’s, 12-35mm f/2.8, 25 f/1.4 and 45 f/1.8. It was lit using Fotodiox 1000ASVL with Lee 1/4 minus green filter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pS0cGcsCS8”
Yes, that’s the kind of news we like to get from Olympus! At last they are reporting strong growth in all their business including the Imaging Segment! They write:
In the mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera field, the OM-D series continued to perform solidly, such as the “OM-D E-M5 Mark II,” which was launched in the previous fiscal year. Sales were also boosted by a contribution from the high performance interchangeable lenses “M.ZUIKO DIGITAL PRO” series with additions of new models bringingthe lineup to four models. In the compact camera field, the Company continued to limit the number of units sold in response to market shrinkage, while retaining sales on a par with the previous year by further advancing the shift to high-value-added models. As a result, sales in the Imaging Systems Business overall increased year on year. The Imaging Systems Business returned to profitability, recording operating income after recording a loss in the same period of the previous fiscal year, mainly due to the increase in sales and progress in reducing expenses.
Mario (video on top): “I am a video artist and I have recently switched from Canon to the MFT format. I got a new Panasonic G7 camera after reading many reviews here. I created a video with my initial tests with the camera: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e23f_lNnP5M. I tested both day and night shots, auto and manual focus, different resolutions and speeds and pretty much all functions used for video. The video is short, but it gives a nice idea of the camera in action.”
Onward Photo: “We just recently published an article about 11 must-see destinations for any photographer in Tokyo, looking at some phenomenal spots for shooting but also for camera gear, galleries and collaborative spaces, and photobooks. One of our highlights is the Olympus gallery, which features work by photographers as well as all of their newest cameras and equipment: http://bit.ly/1OxtqgV”
Anonymous: “With the 4K recording, the cameras are trying to deliver a better image without aliasing and moire, and a good low light performance in low iso. The pixel count in sensor are very important to get these goals. Another important achievement is to keep a good big area on sensor when recording 4K to keep a good shallow dof. This is a challenge for M43 cameras because the sensor is smaller than Sony full frame mirrorless, so using the largest area on M43 cameras to record video is very important for good low light performance without so much noise in high iso, and to keep a good shallow dof. This discussion in PV website shows two draws with interesting sensor design for M43 reducing the total pixels count in amultiaspect sensor design to get the best possible 4K recording: http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/13408/micro-four-thirds-4k-cine-ultra-hd-multiaspect-dream-sensor“

Capion: “The Journey of Hope: https://vimeo.com/131886264. The Journey of Hope is a film telling the story of a very important organization that shares hope with children who are terminally ill or have chronic life threatening diseases. Shot with the Panasonic GH4, GH3, BMCC 2.5k, and DJI s900. We did our best to match the cameras as closely as possible and we also utilized a gorgeous vintage anamorphic 2x lens in the beginning of the film with the GH4’s new 4:3 mode.
