Lee:Hi, the C-Mount on M4/3 Facebook group has produced some exclusive branded T-Shirts for BMPCC owner who just love their C-Mount lenses. Lee Mullen, C-Mount on M4/3 Facebook admin said “We came up with this idea based upon the most frequent question when somebody wants to try a C-Mount lens on their camera; “Does it cover the BMPCC?”, so myself and fellow member Ron Stratton came up with the idea and design to produce a stunning and humorous slogan for the t shirt’s logo – ‘Does it Cover?’ with an image of the Pocket Camera sat in the middle of a vignette complete with dramatic clouds. T shirts and soon coming other merchandise can be purchased directly from our CafePress store: http://www.cafepress.com.au/mf/92683355/c-mount-on-m43_tshirt?productId=1377411864. We are also looking at ‘C-Mount on M4/3′ lens bands to help people to focus with any awkward TV lens”.

Two LX100 tidbits you likely didn’t know (in lens shutter and flash sync). Gets “Essential” mark at PB.

LX100

Panasonic displayed the LX100 at the Ceatec show in Japan (Source: DC.watch). And by the way, many of you may have missed to learn about two interesting features of the LX100:

1) LX100 has a lens-shutter, not a focal plain shutter. So flash-sync for all over the shutter speed (within the mechanical shutter range)
2) LX100 can do wireless flash, according to menu and draft manual that is equipped at Panasonic Center Tokyo.

Thanks M.O. for sharing this info!

There are also new LX100 reviews:

1) Full review at Photographyblog. The camera earned the “Essential” mark:

The LX100 raises the bar considerably and leaps right to the top of the burgeoning premium compact market, even making a strong case as a serious alternative to CSC and DSLR models if it suits your outlook on the world. Sony may have had things mostly to themselves with the RX-series in recent times, but Panasonic have definitely shook things up with the exciting new Lumix DMC-LX100.

2) ISO test at Focus Numerique.

LX100 at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto. Europe at WexUK.
GM5 at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto. Europe at WexUK.
GM5 in red at Adorama.
