FacebookShare


The video on top shows a 110mb AVCHD GH2 Hacked video sample! There have been a lot of activity around the GH2 hacke. Check here at personal-view.com. There is a long list of videos you can check to see the new hack at work :)

ePhotozine (Click here) tested the SLRmagic lens: “Fun to use, with artistic results, but the price tag is madness.” You can get the lens on eBay (Click here).

UPDATE: Slrmagic sent me an official statement about the ePhotozine review: “The editor mentioned many lens in the “far east” has this lens for like 20 pounds. One thing the editor did not mention is the comparisons of both a CCTV lens along with our lens before making the comment. As you can see here some people bought these cheap ones and have their lens stuck on the camera permanently! We know about the cheap ones on eBay. It is the reject parts of factories in China. Some does not focus to infinity. Some are over tight. As you know our mount is smooth unlike what people experience here:http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1042&message=39011656

1) cctv lens has no reflective treatment. (silver inside and on the bottom)
2) cctv lens has much stronger vignette effect
3) some cctv have fixed iris
4) some cctv can be removed if over rotated and as you see our lens is not like this.

Our lens is similar to many CS mount CCTV with 12.9mm rear flange distance but our Toy Lens 26mm f/1.4 is a c mount lens with 17.5 rear flange distance that is designed to adapt to digital camera. The rear flange distance design is different. The CCTV lens your editor refer to has 10 variations in China. I have attached a video of one we bought to show people who has one. Some even twist off when rotated to the every end!”

    Uploading to YT is kind of a waste…
    Their compression makes any kind of analysis useless.

    You beleive that SLR magic bull? really?
    I have used both fujian cctv lens AND a SLR magic one and both are EXACTLY the same lens. Extra coating…quality standards my ass!

    • Dave

      I have both the slr magic and the fujian. I gave the fujian away and kept the slr magic. are you sure you have both?

  • Low Budget Dave

    Outstanding quality on the video. I wish Panasonic would just put a “hack” option on the menu.

    what are your settings on that video. I cant find them on the personal-view forums.

    I might have bought an SLR Magic lens before the price increase, but their new prices are insane.

    Especially now that other vendors are selling fujian lenses bundled with adapters and macro extenders.

    Oooo when will we have 1080p @ 60fps….

    And will the GH2 ever reach the full 120fps sensor output speed (@ 1080p)?

    I hope so… It will make the GH2 the best without a doubt!

    creepy but great video

    Nice use of Vangelis’ “Blade Runner” soundtrack. I expected to see the flames reflected in the eyeball though. I guess they’ll have to add those in with their video editor.
