Sony just announced a sort of Full the Frame OMD :)

y_a7m2_fullsize

Sorry for the joke on the title but there is some truth on it :) Sony announced the new Sony A7m2 Full Frame E-mount camera. And it features the same (or similar) Olympus 5 axis sensor stabilization system! I am yet not sure the tech is coming from Olympus. It certainly looks so. I am wondering now how much “deep” the Sony-Olympus collaboration on the camera business is. Will the day come Olympus will use Sony’s Full Frame sensor too?

Big Cosyspeed Giveaway: Follow, Like and Win one out of 15 bags (camslinger bags / phonebags)!

CS 160 PG Antonia II

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Hi, this is Thomas from COSYSPEED.

It’s super cool that we can have one of our new CAMSLINGER models as a giveaway for your readers! I’m sure many of them would like this new concept of carrying a mirrorless camera (or Superzooms or smaller DSLRs aswell) on the hip or as a sling bag. It’s not a solution to transport large amounts of gear as the bags are on the smaller side, but for daily live when out shooting with smaller gear it will be a very quick and good solution.

Keep on going with your great blog and many thanks, Thomas

LX100 gets highest ever award in its class at Dpreview!

Dpreview posted the full LX100 review and the camera gets the highest ever award in its class! The short conclusion is:

It offers significantly better image quality than pretty much any zoom compact ever made. It’s not a camera entirely without flaws but most of them are so minor that it’s unlikely they’ll ever be more than slight irritations about a camera you’ll love.
My overall experience has been much more about what the camera can do than what it can’t. The LX100 is a pleasure to use and offers superb image quality. I’d consider it the best photographers’ cameras on the market and probably the best zoom compact ever made.

Panasonic LX100 store links:
LX100 in USA at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto. Europe at WexUK.
LX100 in Europe at WexUK, Wex Germany, Amazon Germany, Amazon France, Amazon UK,
LX100 in Asia at Digitalrev, Amazon Japan.
