New GX80/85 52minutes video review by ThisWeekinPhoto with Gordon Laing

Share

Thisweekinphoto posted that 52 minutes long review of the Panasonic new GX80/85 camera. And dutch readers can check out the full GX80 review at Pixelmania.

UPDATE: Camerastuffreview tested the Panasonic too:

If you have large hands, photograph often in poor conditions or prefer lenses with a long focal length, then the Panasonic GX8 might be a more suitable candidate. If you want to use the camera primarily for video, then the Panasonic GH4 is a more obvious choice. In all other cases: It is a pleasure to work with this handy camera. The AF of the Panasonic GX80 is really lightning fast. 4K photo offers the option of recording action at 30 frames per second and saving the best picture in the camera. Go ahead and argue with them, the photographers who choose a Panasonic GX80 over a Leica or a Canon.

Sony will resume Kumamoto sensor production on May 21

Share

As you know Sony had to stop their sensor production in Kumamoto due the damages caused by the April earthquake. The good news is that Sony officialy released a press text in which they say they will resume full operations on May 21.

The Kumamoto facility produces most of the digital camera sensors. That’s why olympus had to delay the E-Pl8 camera launch as this camera uses Sony sensors made in Kumamoto.
