E-P2 – Manual Focus

I found an interesting post inside the dpreview forum:

Dear all,

Manual focus on E-P2 works a bit different than on E-P1 – at least in case of m4/3 and 4/3 lenses.

Moving focus ring automatically brings up magnification view (it is by default, but you can change it through menus). That part is the same as with E-P1, but the difference is that when you stop with focus adjustments (when you stop moving focus ring), E-P2 automatically closes magnification view, and you can see the whole scene.

You can check video sample at: (approx 8MB)

and the result photo is available at:

Best regards,

- The E-P2 is available for preorder at Amazon US / Adorama / BHphoto / Amazon DE

43rumors redesign progress

Good morning!
Wanted to give you a little redesign update.
Things are going forward slowly. The main reason is that there will be a new version of WordPress in few weeks. I am waiting until them before I start to work on it. The good news is that I found a very good Designer which will redo our logo and layout.
I am currently developing the new 43rumors section (deals-photocontest-forum-wiki). All is working very well on my local computer.

I expect to have a first beta version of the website on late January. Keep sending me your suggestions at

(FT3) More Samsung NX specs and image comparison with the Panasonic GF1

[nggallery id=6]

As you may know the Samsung NX is due for release and will very likely become the first real strong MicroFourThirds competitor.

We found some more Samsung NX specs at k-rumors:

1. NX10 has Lens OIS not body built-in. He mentioned he didn’t see any special device related with body SR. emoticon – sad

2. Very good grip feeling.

3. Lighter than E-P1.

4. NX10 AF speed is way faster than E-P1.
It is not accurate but, its AF speed seems to be similar level to Panasonic GH1.

5. EVF is VGA level.

6. K-Mount adapter will be on the market at the same time with NX10.
(it is not sure that it supports AF yet.)

7. My source used only beta body, so possibilities some of above specs could be changed.

8. Samsung could launch NX10 sooner than Jan 10. But, most likely the launch will be Jan. 10.

9. The adapter doesn’t support AF. emoticon – sad

10. NX10 has “green button” to meter exposure.

11. NX10 has a mechanical type focal-plane shutter.“

43rumors little changes…

Dear readers,
as you may have noticed we have a new deal top bar which easily gives you access to the latest deals. Feel free to submit the deals you find in US-Canada and Europe. Now there is no need anymore to post every single deal as a “classic” 43rumors news!

We also want to ask our Canadian, Australian, Chinese, Hong Kong and Korean friends if there are big online shops in their countries we might include into the deals top bar news. Thanks!

P.S.: Starting from today our canadian readers can support our website by shopping at Amazon Canada through this link..
