Open Source photographic revolution?

I really like the open source philosophy but I never thought it could be applied to a photographic camera. After reading the article I can’t wait to see the first production open source camera which should be on market by the end of the next year.

And if you think it’s a joke take a look on the companies that supports the project: Nokia, Adobe Systems, Kodak, and Hewlett-Packard!!!

The “Frankencmera” should cost 1.000$ only. But we stil doesn’t know what kind of specifications the camera will have.

Ken Rockwell share his thoughts about the Olympus E-P1

Read his article and then come back to 43rumors and tell us what you think about his review!

Very interesting, now I know how to remove the annoying autofocus beep!


There is an annoying in focus beeper. You have to spend quite a while turning on the secret menu system to turn it off.

Once you’ve activated the secret menu system, press:

MENU > GEARS > GEARS D (disp / o)) / PC) > o)) > OFF > OK

to turn it off.”
