Mike:Sharing with you guys a recent short film I made for a great organization in the US: Your Grateful Nation…a profile video of retired US Army Green Beret Ryan Jones https://vimeo.com/215226008. It’s first piece I shot with the Gh5 after receiving my preordered cams.  I’m thrilled with this camera, the 10 bit internal cuts great with the DJI OSMO Raw.

Robert:Here is some GH5 V Log footage which may be of interest to 43Rumors readers. I’m astonished by the GH5 quality, even in difficult lighting, and the IBIS allows great freedom to shoot everything handheld. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6G55EOC2Xs

Interview with the designer of the Olympus 12-100mm PRO lens

Share

DC.watch (google translation here) interviewed the group of Olympus people who designed the Olympus 12-100mm PRO lens. There are a lot of technical details which are a bit hard to understand with the google translation tool. Here are just two general info about the lens:

  1. If they would have made the lens with f/2.8 aperture it would have been considerably larger
  2. Lens sales are strong and only recently the production did catch up with the high demand of the lens

Olympus 12-100mm PRO at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Olympus US store, FocusCamera, eBay.

Patrik:There is always alot of talk about fullframe vs m43 in different forums. I owned a a7 and a gx7, and was able to lend a em1mk2. Here are some raw files from both the em1mk2+12-40/2.8, gx7+12-40/2.8 and a7+24-70/4. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/tqhi278u4d3x6mv/AACKBzGXfQp-XKLqAmBWp9qQa?dl=0 I tried to make the same kind of frame using the same kind of settings (sometime manual, some times P, A or S). Maybe it is a good compare, maybe not. I’ll just let the viewer decide 🙂

Jaime: I wanted to show this 360 infrared panorama, with b&w and color conversion and html coding to keep the point of view when you change the panorama, made with a Sony Nex5 converted to 720nm, hope you like it.
