Panasonic is working on “anamorphic de-squeeze modes for the GH5” (to be released this summer)

Last week I did report about the new Gmonitor APP. Today the developer contacted me to report some surprising development:

“I’ve got some very positive feedback from some Panasonic Employees about my brand new app GMonitor (you already published it, thanks a lot for it). They really like the added Anamorphic Desqueeze option which I provided as an update. Here some information about upcoming GH5 update (original quote!).

“…We put pressure to our devs to put a proper de-squeeze for the anamorphic modes in the GH5 (let’s hope for it in the summer firmware update that’ll bring 6K anamorphic)…”

It is like my Focus Bracket app – they are killing my business :-)

Until then you can work with the new release of my app which brings different anamorphic desqueeze factors – and the ability of 1:2.35 crop marks for the video shooters without anamorphic lenses. Update is uploaded to App Store and should be available soon.

The app can be found here:

Some new screen shots attached – as I don’t own anamorphic lenses you just see the stretched image. But as reported on Facebook it really works!

Olympus officially registered two new cameras (One is a Stylus and one the new E-M10III)

Olympus registered two new camera models with the code “IM005” and “IM006”. We can share some more info through our sources:

  1. The “IM005” is a new Stylus camera as in previous documents we saw it uses the LI-92B battery.
  2. The “IM006” is probably the new E-M1oIII camera. Our sources said this is the next system camera Olympus will announce this year.

Once registered It usually takes a couple of months before these cameras get officially announced.

 

 

(FT5) This year we will get a new Olympus E-M10III


E-M1II vs E-M10II at CameraSize

If you wonder what’s on Olympus roadmap this year well I can share one rumor I got via my trusted sources: There will be definitely a new E-M10 mark III. If it’s a sort of more compact and mini E-M1II I am sure it will be a very nice camera!
