Shattered Glass:After reading your blog and watching many of the videos you share, I thought I might send you a video of mine dealing with the SLR Magic 12mm and 25mm Hyperprime lenses. I’ve seen next to nothing about the 25mm on YouTube, and on my video I shared your post about the SLR magic being sharper than the Nokton Voigtlander. Anyway, I hope my video can help out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HjgWypeUpE

Ivan: Hi there! I made a short clip using with GH3 and Fujian 25mm 1.4 CCTV lens. With some work in post this combination gives you vintage, almost anamorphic feel. Given the price of the lens ($20 on ebay) I think everyone should have it. Here’s the video: https://vimeo.com/67524039

Edward:Thought I’d share my set of pictures from the new Sigma 60mm 2.8 “Art” lens. Previously I have owned the first gen 19mm and 30mm 2.8’s and were very impressed with all their lens qualities but found more suitable replacements in the shape of faster f stop options. This lens however is a real keeper as it’s quite the alternative to the 75mm 1.8. http://www.flickr.com/photos/comedyshots/sets/72157634014718030/ I’m a professional that has made the switch to Micro Four Thirds in a big way. All I miss is the slightly more instant shutter release and the battery life. The IQ absolutely surpasses my Canon 7D. edshots.co.uk

Jerry:Its not a rumor, its bug in Olympus E-PL5 when you shutting photos with hi aperture value (for example F12 in A or M) with flash, the live view shows totaly black picture (doesnt simulate flash). Its almost impossible to make composition… I think the problem also exist in P etc. but its mostly visible in A or M. View on the screen should simulate all conditions also flash should be simmulated. Im still waiting for any feedback form olympus tech.

Joe:I don’t remember if I ever shared this, but I shot this with the GH2 and the Olympus 45mm. Lit with a Profoto in a medium softbox camera right out the window, as well as a Profoto in a stripbox camera left for rim. http://www.flickr.com/photos/fotosiamo/8731665744/in/photostream/ You can see more of my Micro 4/3 work at http://www.fotosiamo.com

New Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera test!

FacebookShare

Vivid Pocket from John Brawley Tests on Vimeo.

John Brawley posted that new video and a new post on his blog (Click here to read): “I shot mainly at ISO 1600, but the first few clips were shot at 800. Lens wise I had the Panasonic 14mm F2.5 (first few shots) and the Panasonic 20mm F1.7 (second lot of shots before the ferry travelling left to right) then I was principally on the Olympus 45mm F1.8 but I also had the 12mm SLR Magic T1.6 and the SLR magic 25mm T0.96

It’s an imrpessive camera for little money. But there is still a long way to go before it starts shipping (End of July according to BHphoto).

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema preorders in USA at Adorama (Click here), BHphoto (Click here) and in Germany at Technikdirekt, in France at pbs-video. In Sweden at macoteket, scandinavianphoto, protel.jetshop, webhallen.

Readers mail roundup (Possible GH3 issue, new Kanchas project, and more).

FacebookShare

Here is a short roundup of the new readers mails:

Anonymous:Mcgillicuddy giving away lighting secrets for free! Free E-book on his site here https://damian-mcgillicuddy.squarespace.com/journal/

Teun:I thought I’d share this excellent youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIkJklEiH8E
It coontains quite a few m43 product reviews, it isn’t fast with the reviews, but they are very informative and enjoyful to watch. It isn’t mine channel, or a friend’s channel, I though it would just be quite interesting to the people visiting this website.

Aki:Some sport photos  and  gallery about volleyball world league game Finland-Portugal. Shooted with Olympus E-M5.  http://www.akikuvaa.com/world-league-suomi-portugali/

Ross:For those of us Aussie members, Olympus Imaging Australia shop is now open for accessories. Cameras are still only available through retailters. See this news page. [url]http://www.olympus.com.au/Learn-Explore/Latest-News/Olympus-Imaging-launches-online-Olympus-Store-to-s.aspx[/url] It’s nice to see these items being more accessable than at present, albeit at full price. The main web page has now changed in format with their blog & forum pages no longer there, but that might just be during the process of change being the weekend.

Edmond:I sent this to you folks yesterday but guess it slipped through: http://www.flickr.com/photos/terakopian/sets/72157633795304974/ It’s a gallery of images from the Olympus PEN E-P3. Seeing your post today, I thought I’d send it again as I’m sure it’ll be of interest to your readers if it’s posted with the article. Just as some background, I’m a photojournalist based in London. I have a World Press Photo award as well as the title of the British Press Awards Photographer of the Year.

Anonymous:I would like to report an issue with the GH3. I have done many tests to replicate this problem, and some other users have replicated the issue after my report. I have created I few videos to show the issue. https://vimeo.com/66920197  https://vimeo.com/67328505 https://vimeo.com/67382669. After increasing exposure of a RAW time-lapse, footage shows color flicker on underexposed areas. I don’t really know the reason for this problem. I have tested both 12-35 and 35-100 lumix lenses, and the problem is noticeable with both of them. This color shift ruins lots of RAW timelapse footage.
Barbaros:I took this footage from downtown Ankara in short hours. It may not be the best of its kind but if you are living in a country where press is suppressed you better obtain a M43. Tens of thousands protest yesterday in the city center and I have not seen any single report in media. https://vimeo.com/67476129 For tech savy people this was taken handheld with OMD+Sigma 19 2.8. Superb combo with mouth watering high iso capabilities even though dailymotion compression overshadow some of it.

Côme:I just wanted to tell you I have launched a new project recently, Kanchas, a free portfolio-creation system, particularly well-suited for photographers. The idea is to quickly set up a few pages, each of them featuring a big, fullscreen picture, and to browse easily among them. Maybe this will interest your readers and I would be very pleased if you shared it with the 43rumors viewers :) The link is https://kanchas.com.

Aaron:I’m not sure if this is where I can send you videos but check out my video with the panasonic GH3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Q5PnC-9NAc

Lee:Please can you share our new facebook group? https://www.facebook.com/groups/cmountm43/Editor’s note: Done ;)

 

Thanks you all!
