(UPDATED) More About Polaroid’s Mirrorless Camera

FacebookShare

Interchangeable lenses and Android 4.1. If that wasn’t enough to be an innovator, now we know that Polaroid’s (oddly named) iM1836 camera has the sensor built into the lens (it’s a 1″ sensor). Though this was done in the past by Ricoh (with the GXR). Moreover, Polaroid says that there will be adapter modules that can take Nikon F, Pentax K and Micro Four Thirds lenses. If I got it right than the camera itself has no sensor and the sensor will fit within the Micro Four Thirds adapter.

dvice (via fstoppers) has some more information about the Polaroid’s features. PetaPixel is also worth a read. DPreview also posted an article.

Leaving Leica And Going Micro Four Thirds

What happens when you realize how cool the Micro Four Thirds world is?

What I am going to feature is almost a Christmas tale (because it happened on Christmas) :-)

J Shin wrote a long and interesting post at Leicarumors about how it came to the abandoning of the Leica world, and to the entry into the MFT world. Definitely worth to be read.

Have fun!

Amarcord: Olympus PEN EED.

FacebookShare

Let’s keep talking about past Olympus cameras and today I will shortly introduce you to the PEN-EED (auctions here on eBay). As you see it had a built in optical viewfinder. Produced from 1967 to 1972, it is a more expensive automated-exposure model, with a CdS meter, a 32mm f/1.7 lens and a hot shoe. Why did Oly created the EED? The Pen E had no fast lenses and  only slow shutter speeds, The Pen D’ had no automatic exposure. The EED combined the best from both cameras. And how did Olympus advertise this camera? Just look at the image here:

LOL!

A list of all PEN-EED auctions can be found on eBay (Click here) or via Slidoo (Click here).
