Panasonic Lumix USA made some poke fun on the new Canon EOS-M3 USA announcement (Canon didn’t sell that camera in US before). Not gentle? I found this cool :)

Olympus AIR for microbiology use!

tumblr_inline_nt9ppcGWdJ1t44x0p_500

MicroCosm published an interesting article about Real-time Transmission of Microbiology Images using Olympus Air:

Cameras with macro lenses and microscopes with attached cameras have long been used by diagnostic microbiology labs to document images of microbes for training and educational purposes. However the real-time transmission of these images has been impractical because the image has to be downloaded onto a computer and distributed by a file-sharing system or email.
The Olympus Air is a new concept of camera which provides a 16-megapixel micro four-thirds sensor which can be coupled wirelessly to your handphone. It therefore combines the power and flexibility of a proper camera with the connectivity and ease of use of a handphone.

And BHphoto Blog posted an article about “A Weekend with the Olympus Air A01”:

To be completely honest, I wasn’t expecting much from this tiny device. But, once I got over my initial apprehension and really leveraged some of the major assets of the Air, I grew to like it. Granted, as I still feel infinitely more comfortable with a “real” camera, even if it is just a point-and-shoot, it would be hard to convince me that some sort of phone/camera hybrid will be my best option. But, for those looking for cutting-edge devices, or who really want to add some better images to their thriving social media accounts, they will find much to love about the Olympus Air A01. The pairing with the app is superb and really makes it completely worth trying if you are looking to improve your smartphone’s capabilities, especially since many will find their smartphone’s interface to be much more intuitive than the menu systems on many entry-level cameras.

Olympus AIR MFT camera is in Stock at Amazon US (Click here), Adorama (Click here), BHphoto (Click here) and on eBay in White (Click here) or Black (Click here).

(FT5) Strange rumors: Panasonic to launch a Panasonic GH4R!

Bildschirmfoto 2015-08-28 um 18.52.08

Digicameinfo got quite a strange and yet not 100% clear rumors. Panasonic will announce the “Panasonic GH4R“. This is basically a GH4 with V-LOG included. I don’t know what exactly that means. But I guess Panasonic will simply sell the current GH4 as GH4R to remark the new V-LOG features. I also don’t know if that means that current GH4 camera will have to pay some $$$ to get V-LOG. Let’s hope that’s not the case…

Panasonic is set to announce more info on the V-LOG update on September 1!
