Paniko:I’d like to share my last video I did the day before Olympus released the “NO4K firmware update” for the OMD E-M1 :) I’m relatively new to video, but shooting it with a OMD E-M1 does not let myself down and (for now) i’m not feeling the need to buy another camera just for that.

Mark:Hey guys, just wanted to share a video walkthrough of an all-mobile photography workflow. Olympus E-PM2 used in the video!

Capio Studio:Hello 4/3rds here is a sample of the Panasonic GH4 in slow-motion with the AR-15. I hope you enjoy!

(FT4) There may be a new E-M1 firmware update to fix “mysets” delete bug.

The warning message has now been added ont he E-M1 firmware update page.

Our reader Enrico noticed one bug coming along the new E-M1 firmware update:

The recently released firmware version 2.0 for the Olympus E-M1 resets almost all current settings and deletes all Mysets (stored sets of settings) upon installation. Basically, the camera is back to factory defaults but still remembers the current image number and current date and time. Even things like the photographer’s name in the copyright field in metadata are gone.
This happened to me when updating from version 1.4. Aside from this, the update was uneventful and I have noticed no negative side effects of the new firmware.
Better write down all non-default settings in your Mysets before updating.

And an anonymous source just told me that Olympus will fix this with the next E-M1 firmware update.

Panasonic UK interview: Says GH4 is a huge success in UK. Mirrorless sales growing worldwide.

Photokina 2014 – Panasonic-GH4-Matt-Frazer about the GH4
from Personal View on Vimeo.

Photographyblog interviewed Barnaby Sykes and Dai Mukai from Panasonic. Here are some key info:

- Whether we’re looking at volume or value, CSC shows very strong growth.
– (in UK) We actually had more orders than we forecast for the GH4 and ran out. We got some more in from Japan and ran out again. We’ve just put another order in.
– The GM5 is not called GM2 because it’s a major step up from the GM5 and will not replace the Gm1 (has EVF, improvement in AF speed and also burst shooting).
– LX100 also doesn’t replace the LX7
– Cameras with built-in Viewfinders are a really hot trend on the market
– premium compact camera (fixed lens) market is growing

Sounds like Panasonic is finally on the right path!
