Sony and Olympus do announce a new 4K partnership…on surgical endoscope system :)

Bildschirmfoto 2015-09-18 um 10.11.09

For a very short moment I was jumping off my chair. Sony Japan issued a press text with that new Sony & Olympus logo and with “4k” in the title. But after using the google translation tool I discovered Sony and Olympus announced a 4K partnership to develop 4K endoscope systems :)

Still, I hope Olympus will work with Sony to make some 4K ready sensor for the next generation of PEN and OMD cameras!

a bit of everything…

Fredrik (video above):I have made an animated GIF (and video) which illustrates how the OM-D sensor moves around when you hand hold the camera: This is fascinating in itself, and it also gives you impressively stable video recordings.

Panasonic 30mm f/2.8 Macro Lens Video Review (ePhotozine).
An affortable zoom lens for m43: Panasonic Lumix G X VARIO 45-175mm (eyesuncloudedphoto).
7-14mm review with side-by-side comparison shots with the older Zuiko 7-14mm/F4 (Pixelmania).

Johannes:This time the topic is not as hot as some of my last posts. but I did want to give it to a wider audience. m43 suffers a bit from affordable high performance lenses. Like the Nifty Fifty in the Canon world…I had some discussions in the mu43 forum – and gave the Sigma f2.8 30mm a try – and I am impressed… It is a good lens for a really fair price…This should be more public – especially for the people starting photography…
