Here is a E-M5II video shot at -25 Celsius!

Share


ESCAPE = JOY – KAUASxOLYMPUS
from KΛUΛS on Vimeo.

Techradar interviewed the director of the E-m5II video “escape=joy” Janne Tarvonen. Here are some of his comments:

1) We shot the video at -20-25 degrees celsius.
2) We even shot some scenes (handheld) with a 300mm focal length and lots of movement in the picture. The autofocus worked really well here, especially the scene where the snowmobiles are moving down from the hill.
3) The stabilizer is a game changer really. It doesn’t only work in big movements like when following the subject by walking, but also in small movements like doing really small pulls and pushes [moving in and out] with the camera. The stabilizer gives so much freedom in run-and-gun style shoots where you can’t really carry a lot of gear with you.

(FT4) Some CP+ surprise from Panasonic: 30mm macro and another new (mockup) lens to be shown at CP+

A trusted source told me that Panasonic plans to show two more new MFT lenses at CP+. One should be almost certainly the 30mm f/2.8 macro lens. The specs of the second lens are unknown but that lens should be displayed as mockup only.

Reminder about the new 30mm macro:

Panasonic writes about that lens:

The new 30mm/F2.8 macro lens enables not only life-size macro photography but also offers further versatile styles of capturing photos, such as landscape photography thanks to a focusing distance of 60mm (35mm camera equivalent). For high precision focusing in macro photography the new lens also supports 240 fps high-speed AF, while integrating optical image stabiliser. It features a sophisticated exterior design in metallic finish for the stylish appearance.

43rumors reader Leo reported at Photokina:

I was at the Photokina today and Pansonic had a mockup of a 30mm lens with the label “Lumix G macro”. There was no further explanation and nobody at the booth could give me details. In fact they were surprised by the display themselves ;).
