Whatch this: Panasonic creates a 3D photolab using 120 GH4 cameras!


What an amazing idea! Panasonic uses 120 GH4 cameras to create one single 3D picture of people inside a special hall. The 3D image is then used to print a 3D figure of the person:


And here is the full video (in Japanese) to see how this works in detail:

Photozone reviews the 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens: “it is highly desirable lens with one bug”.

Photozone posted the full Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens review and writes:

The Olympus M.Zuiko ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO is, mostly, a highly desirable lens – except for one bug. On the positive side, it is very good if not excellent in the primary image quality metrics. It is very sharp across the focal length range including some greatness in the middle portion. Vignetting and distortions are very low. One the downside, the quality of the bokeh (out-of-focus blur) can be disappointing – not in all scenes but busy backgrounds are clearly not the lens’ best friends.
Olympus M.Zuiko ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO is directly competing with Panasonic’s Lumix G X 35-100mm f/2.8 Power OIS. Obviously the Olympus has the bigger range (and as such also a bigger size/weight) and is somewhat sharper whereas the Panasonic has clearly the better bokeh plus an image stabilizer. Both are very good really.
