Let’s have some fun. Use your Nintendo DS to control the E-P1 :)


Did you know that you can jailbreak your Olympus software? Once you do that you will be able to use your Nintendo DS to capture timelapse shots with a built-in alarm and triggering the shutter by clapping your hands instead of pressing the button (Yeah I know it is exactly the feature we were all looking for).

You need to install the Open Camera Controller (which is Open Source).

Your camera will now have following features:
* Unlimited AEB
* Sound Trigger
* Motion Sensing
* Timelapse
* Sun-/Moonrise aware

A complete description of the software is available here:

A youtube video (test on Canon DSLR) is available here:

(FT2) Panasonic GH2 patent and Panasonic 3D lenses

EOSHD spotted a new Panasonic patent which shows a GH1 similar camera with metal body.
The new metal body has heat radiators and heat conductors to remove heat from around the image processing unit and the CMOS sensor. Read more at EOSHD!

EOSHD also speculates that Panasonic could produce 3D Lens for GH1 / GH2. We from 43rumors havn’t heard anything about that. Anyway it would be really cool if that speculation becomes real!

POLL: What is the right definition for the new mirrrorless system cameras?

We do all agree that MicroFourThirds created a new category of digital cameras. But how should we call that kind of system cameras with no mirror?

Dpreview calls them ILC = Interchangeable Lens Compacts
Imaging Resource calls them SLD = Single-Lens Direct-view cameras
Than we have EVIL = electronic viewfinder interchangeable lens camera
and mirror-less interchangeable lens camera

Now it is your turn:

Do you like the design of the new Panasonic GF2?
