Panasonic (Click here) just announced that they will release a new GH3, H-FS45150, H-PS14042 and H-PS45175 firmware update in late March of 2013. The improvements are listed on the screenshot you see here on top. The firmware will also fix the intervalometer issue we reported last week.
Mpgxsvcd: “Here is a video that shows some of the impossible shots you can get with the GH3’s in camera RAW stacking mode. Panasonic has not said anything about the RAW stacking capabilities the GH3 has. In fact I didn’t even know it had it until I first got mine. However, I had a chance last night to really play around with it for Astro Photography. Simply put. The in camera HDR and stacking could be game changers. The GH3 already beats every single APS-C camera on DXO mark Canon makes. Canon has been the defacto camera for AP for many years. Here are some images and videos I took last night while the full moon was out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJFaw-burCI The in camera RAW stacking that the GH3 offers could finally allow us to get impressive images in camera and without ever hooking up a computer to the scope. For me that is essential. The big issue is that you simply must guide the scope. Trying to do it with tracking alone won’t work. Right now I can’t afford to guide so I did some testing with brighter objects.”
Anonymous: “Below is a single image that was produced in camera by stacking many RAW images from different areas of space together. The only thing I edited was that some of the stars show through the moon. However, I have posted the original out of camera RAW file if you want to play with it. I took the image of Orion first and then stacked for quick exposures of the moon over it. It is really easy because the GH3 shows you the original RAW image with the live view super imposed over it. http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/4222674355/photos/2445623 And here is the dpreview thread where we are discussing it. http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3389829”
Gregory: “I have since been working on a separate project: a photography blog where I’ve gathered the best of my street photography in Istanbul, where I live. Most of the shots where taken with a GF-1, many with the E-M5 and a handful with a Pentax K5. m43 lenses used: mostly 20mm 1.7. and 14mm 2.5 but also 45mm 2.8. and 45mm 1.8 Pentax lenses used: Sigma 17-50 2.8, Pentax 15mm 4.0 Ltd.

Olympus Japan officially announced the price drops on the 17mm f/2.8 lens and on the VF-3 viewfinder. You see the price drop info on the image on top. There is no detail yet about EU and US price drops. I guess we will see them soon too. Current price of the 17mm lens is $299 (Amazon) and around 240 Euro in Europe (Amazon). The VF-3 sells for $159 (Amazon) and 132 Euro (Amazon).
