Look at that: Use the new Apple Watch as a viewfinder for the Olympus AIR!


This is highly likely the most compact solution to have a working screen on the new Olympus AIR. Just clip the new Apple Watch on it! It really looks cool :) posted these pictures from the 4th PC Hack meeting. Haruhito Fuji created the new Watch APP called “AirRecipe” (on iTunes here) to sync the AIR with the Apple Watch. Here is the video that shows how it works:

You can buy the new Olympus AIR at Amazon, Adorama, GetOlympus, BHphoto and on eBay (www shipment).

Capture and re-focus to be added via future firmware update:
Enabled by 4K video capture and Panasonic’s DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology, Post Focus will allow users to select a focus point for an image after capture. Unlike true light field capture, Post Focus works by shifting focus during a 30fps burst of 4K footage. In playback, the user can touch the LCD to ‘set focus’ on a particular point and the camera will extract a still image with the specified plane of focus. A firmware update will be available for the newly-minted Panasonic Lumix GX8 and Lumix FZ300 ‘and some other models’ in late 2015 to enable Post Focus, according to the manufacturer.
