ePhotozine says: Why buy a DSLR when you can have the G3? :)

Share


ePhotozine (Click here) posted a new Panasonic G3 review. And I love that part of their conclusion text: “With such impressive image quality and high speed focusing, the reasons for buying a true Digital SLR seem to be becoming less and less important, and the added bonus of a much more compact system is making the Micro Four Thirds systems much more appealing, especially with the number of high quality lenses available increasing.” And of course the camera gets “Highly Recommended” by the reviewer team.

If you want that camera click those direct search links to find the G3: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay.

First images of the “new” Noktor 50mm f/0.95 lens (same old optical design!)

Zdp-189.tumblr.com toke that picture of the new Noktor Hyperprime 50mm f/0.95 production (demo model) post acquisition by SLRMagic from their showroom in Sim City, Mongkok. I have been told by the SLRmagic guys that they remade the focusing part of the lens to get perfect infinity focus. And every lens has to be tuned before to go for sale and that (alng the stonrg yen) is the reason for the higher production costs. The new lens should hit the stores by end of the month.

P.S.: Those are the links to the other three lenses made by SLRmagic:
SLR magic 11mm f/1.4 lens you can preorder on eBay (Click here)
Toy Lens 26mm f/1.4 lens on eBay (Click here)
SLR Magic 35mm f/1.7 MC lens on eBay (Click here)

First Hacked GH2 footage!

“Cinegraphy” posted this very first 133 Mbit video shot with the hacked GH2 on Personal-View.com: “The name says it all: a 133 Mbit Mjpeg Clip, straight from my GH2, not edited / graded / transcoded before upload…
Of course watching it on Vimeo doesn’t make that much sense, since it’s only interesting from a technical point of view; you’re welcome to download the source file…
Following settings were used (regarding Mpeg tweeking): Quality 400/300/250/188; Table 4/4/4/4 (as far as I know these are some settings, Modulr developed for the GH13 Firmware hack 1-2 years ago)…

EosHD posted another video with the hacked GH2: “A preview of my shot film shot using the GH2 hack in 4:3 MJPEG mode with a LOMO 2x anamorphic lens. For the first time we can shoot as intended with a 2x anamorphic lens on a DSLR. 4:3 converts to true 2.35:1 cinemascope with such a lens. Anamorphic lenses were used on some great all time classics, Blade Runner and Alien for instance.” See a lis of anamorphic lenses on eBay (Click here).

Thanks again Vitaly for your amazing work!

(FT3) Is that the new external viewfinder from Olympus?

As you might remember our sources said that Olympus had a new cheaper external EVF but than Olympus didn’t announce it along the new PEN cameras. We were all wondering what happened. Finally our reader “Felix” noticed something very interesting in one of the E-P3 commercials from Olympus (Click here to see the commercial on youtube). At the end of the video (00:58) you can see the new external viewfinder we talked about for weeks! It’s definitely NOT the current Olympus VF-2 (Click here to see images of that viewfinder). Hope Olympus will let us know more about it soon!

Thanks Felix
