Panasonic GH4 price $1699?


For a short time Phototools unveiled the price of the GH4 camera. We don’t know yet if this si the correct price or not. What we know for sure is that preorders will be accepted from March 17 only at Amazon US (Click here). That’s a fair price considered the only compettitor right now is the Blackmagic Design Production Camera 4K which sells for $2,995.00 at BHphoto (Click here).

Thanks Marco for finding this!

Note: The current GH3 price is $980 at Amazon.



It’s official: Nokton 25mm with De-Clicked Stepless Aperture Control.


Voigtlander officially announced a new version of the 25mm f/0.95 MFT lens. it has the same optical design but adds De-Clicked Stepless Aperture Control. The image on top shows the new lens. Price will be the same of the current Nokton 25mm (here one Bay). The new version will ship from March.

I got the press text in German if you want/can read it:

Nachdem sich die lichtstarken Festbrennweiten mit MFT- Anschluß immer größerer Beliebtheit erfreuen, gibt es eine weitere frohe Kunde. Das erste Objektiv dieser Reihe, das Nokton 0,95/25mm, wird ab März 2014 auch mit der selektiven Blendensteuerung ausgestattet sein.
Dies erlaubt dem Benutzer zu wählen ob er die traditionelle Vorgehensweise der Blendeneinstellung oder ob er eine stufenlose Blendensteuerung bevorzugt. Besonders bei der Anwendung im Filmmodus lassen sich hier sehr effektvoll dramatische Einstellungen erzielen, zumal die stufenlose Einstellung auch absolut geräuschlos vorgenommen werden kann. Alle anderen technischen Daten bleiben unverändert.

Thanks Thomas for finding this!

Have to catch up with two small non MFT related news-rumors:
TVBeurope reports that “Panasonic is set to launch its first handheld ENG camera with wireless connectivity, enabling recorded content to be shared almost instantly and accessed from anywhere.”
ePostel unveils that Olympus will launch a new SH-1 compact camera. The fact that it has been listed on that site means that Olympus has still one more announcement coming within the next few weeks. Maybe something else is coming too?

(FT5) New Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 MFT lens coming on Wednesday!


The image on top shows you the new Voigtlander/Cosina 25mm f/0.95 Micro Four Thirds lens! There is no info on the specs yet but I think this as the same optical design as the current Nokton 25mm (here on eBay). What could change is the aperture ring which could become “clickless” like the newer 42,5mm Nokton. This will make film makers happy.

The lens will be announced on this Wednesday February 12 at 5 or 6 am London time!
