Cool DJI Ronin Hands-On Field Test by TheCameraStoreTV


Those of you that use MFT cameras for video may be interested to watch that DJI Ronin Hands-On Field Test by TheCameraStoreTV. It’s really a nice toy although it costs close to 3000 Euro/Dollars on eBay (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).

UPDATE: great Varavon BirdyCam 2 Gimbal video and deal at Personal View. It’s cheaper than the Ronin :)

Panasonic 35-100mm reviewed at ePhotozine. First time in Stock in USA (Adorama).

The brand new Panasonic 35-100mm f/4.0-5.6 lens is in Stock for the very first time in USA via Adorama (Click here). And the same lens just got reviewed at ePhotozine:

On the whole, it’s difficult to fault this little lens from Panasonic. Optically it performs better than its £300 price tag would have you expect, while being compact enough to be barely noticeable in a camera bag when travelling. Those looking for a compact telephoto lens, should certainly add this lens to their list of considerations.

Panasonic Lumix G Vario 35-100mm f/4.0-5.6 Asph Pros

Excellent sharpness at maximum aperture throughout the zoom range
Compact, collapsible design
Good build quality
Light weight
Optical stabilisation
Decent value

Panasonic Lumix G Vario 35-100mm f/4.0-5.6 Asph Cons

Lower priced alternatives offer more telephoto reach for less money, but are generally more bulky

One more thing: Black Friday deals already started on Amazon US (Click here to see an impressive long list of deals).

Fourth part of the LX100 development story. And a LX100 vs 5dMarkIII video quality comparison.

Panasonic (Click here) posted their fourth and last episode of the LX100 development story:

In the process of actualizing the concept, we focused our attention on the LC1. We successfully created a brand new high-end compact digital camera that contains the DNA of the legendary LC1 revived after a decade.

Hackermovies compared the video quality between the Panasonic LX-100 and 5D MK III:

The small LX-100 can match the huge raw files from the 5D just with a little bit of underexpose and grading in post. That´s cool and shows the sensor´s and processing engine´s true strenghts. And we did not even talk about noise reduction with Neatvideo yet .. there are plenty of options once you start thinking about that.

Panasonic preorders:
LX100 at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto. Europe at WexUK.
GM5 at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto. Europe at WexUK.
GM5 in red at Adorama.
35-100mm at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto.

LX100 shooting report at Dpreview and review at Digitalversus.

DPreview (Click here) added the LX100 shooter experience report:

The LX100 let me shoot at ISO 12,800 and come away with results that impressed me. I’m not suggesting the LX100’s images are as good as those of a Nikon D810, or even the best APS-C camera: it uses a sensor area half that size. The corners can be a bit soft at some focal lengths and there doesn’t seem to be quite as much processing latitude (Raw dynamic range) as the latest sensors from Sony, but the LX100 has let me achieve more than I’d expect to do with any other compact.

Digitalversus (Click here) posted the full LX100 review and writes:

The Lumix LX100 hits where it counts. It boasts picture quality, speed, a generally bright lens, 4K video, an aperture ring, a shutter speed dial and an EVF, all in a relatively small body. However, between classic sobriety and geeky frills, don’t ask us whether it overdoes things or underdoes them… After all, it’s part-Panasonic, part-Leica. And there are worse things a camera can be.
