(FT5) UPDATED: New Olympus teaser….for a new website :(

Share

Olympus Malaysia launched a new website with the following teaser: http://www.evolve.com.my/.

But CNET Asia learned that this is not a teaser for a new product announcement:”We got back to Olympus Singapore which told CNET Asia that the microsite is just part of the company’s marketing scheme for the already-announced E-PL1 Micro Four Thirds camera. Also, no new dSLRs are expected on February 28.

(FT3) New dual exposure technique sensor for the GH2?

The website EOShd.com reported what Panasonic engineer T. Azuma’s said during the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco (which took place last week).

Basically Azuma says that Panasonic developed a sensor based on ‘dual exposure technique’ which improves the sensitivity by a factor of 4. This goal has been archived allowing green pixels to be read independently of the blue and red ones on the sensor. They are exposed four times longer than the red and blue pixels.

More details on EOShd.com.

I just received an email from one of our readers which found that lens on ebay. The description of the owner says: “This lens is 55mm f/1.0~f/11 , was manufactory in Japan by Kowa. Lens rework on Panasonic Lumix G1 GF1 GH1 or Olympus E-P1 E-P2.“. The lens fits on a MicroFourThirds camera without any adapter!

(P.S: The lens is currently in auction)

Panasonic basic plans for 2010…a little to basic :)

At a convention in Munich Panasonic “unveiled” their 2010 plan for the G-System. Photographyblog knows the three key points of the “plan”:
– Expand Lineup
– Pursue Easy Operation
– Expand Lens Lineup

That’s kind of a plan! :)

(FT4) The competition is striking back: Samsung and Sony ready to launch new mirrorless cameras!

Just a small update about the MicroFourThirds competition. It seems that Sony is going to announce two or more mirrorless cameras on PMA (click here to read the specs on SonyAlphaRumors). Samsung is also going to announce a cheaper NX camera (source: k-rumors.com).

What’s common with the the two rumors is that it seems that both companies will present very compact cameras (like the Pen-series or Panasonic GF1).

Interesting: Canon and Nikon should not unveil any mirrorless camera soon…
