Reeperbahn with the Panasonic LUMIX GX8
By Thomas Ludwig

The Panasonic LUMIX GX8 has some impressive specs and comes along in a rangefinder style body. As it is not the smallest mirrorless camera and hence a bit more eye-catching, I was curious to see how it works in the streets. As usual I had my focus also on how it fits in a CAMSLINGER bag when hiking a city for a day.

The amazing E-M1II Antarctica pictures from Álvaro Sanz

Álvaro Sanz just sent me this:

I’m Álvaro Sanz, photographer, film director and Olympus Visionary.
Since 14th of november I have been photographing southern Chile and the antarctic lands with the new Olympus camera OM-D EM-1 MarkII. I will continue my trip for one more week testing this new camera and enjoying one of the most remote places on the planet. Attached to this email you can find a dossier with more details.
I’m travelling with one more videographer equipped with another EM1 MkII. Our aim is to create a small documentary to test this camera and some of its new features. If you want to see how it works, you can view a teaser recorded in the Drake Passage, the most dangerous sea in the world: https://vimeo.com/193866270

The full picture gallery (And spanish text) can be seen at antarctica.esolympus.es

That’s the kind of story that tells I like to see more than any camera review!

Olympus E-M1II preorders:
In USA at BHphoto, Amazon, GetOlympus and Adorama.
In Europe at ParkCameras. WexUK. Digitech.ch.

Bug warning: Do not install firmware 4.2 on your E-M1

FacebookShare

As reported by many readers (including Pen And tell and Denjw) the 4.2 firmware update for the E-M1 contains a major bug on. It locks down and creates corrupted images when using those functions:
– Focus Stacking
– Keystone
– HDR
– Starlight mode

So please do not install the firmware. Or if you already installed it don’t use those functions until Olympus will release a bug fix (hopefully soon).
