GH4 shoots worldwide first drone porn video :)


That’s a classic example of a relatively boring video that goes viral on the web. That’s because it’s the first porn video shot on a drone :) The filmmaker used the GH4 and the 14mm lens to realize the shortfilm. You can watch the full video over at
Anyway, there is really not a lot to see. Actually the landscapes is more interesting than the small tiny couples you see on the distance…

A bit of everything…

Temujin (video on top): “I thought you might be interested in this documentary film I shot in Antarctica on the GH3. The lowest temperatures the camera experienced was about -40¢ªC (but this does not factor in wind chill, so it might have been a bit lower)”

September shipment info: Mirrorless camera shipment increases over August (but lower than 12 months ago)


Image courtesy: Personal View

Despite a huge drop on the US market the overall worldwide mirrorless shipments keep growing compared to August. Particularly the European shipments had a big jump. But it’s still a long way to go before Mirrorless will catch up with DSLR sales. And The overall system camera market is still shrinking compared to 2013. Both DSLR and Mirrorless sales are lower compared to the same month 2013 :(

Full Cipa data here. More graphs at Personal View.

Olympus is really doing it: Patent dislcoses their new Lens-Camera!



A newly published Olympus patent (Source: Egami) discloses the design of a new “Lens-Camera”. It works just like the Sony QX lenscameras (here on eBay). I guess this kind of product will be announced soon as Olympus already showed a similar version with their Open Platform camera. This is Olympus answer to the dying compact camera market. But I really don’t know if that is really the right solution…
