OlympusCafè launched the Olympus Cafe TV, where users can see all Olympus/Photography related videos in one place on the site.
Panasonic will launch a new LCD protective film for the GF2 on March 12 (DC.watch.impress).
A 43rumors readers sent me following text: “G2 has the Extended Teleconversion feature of the GH2. I checked the manual and sure enough the G2 has the extra teleconversion feature that the GH2 has even for video. They called it EZ zoom for the G2 though. It is limited to a single 3.1x zoom for videos but it appears to be the near lossless version of the GH2. It crops the sensor instead of scaling.
I can’t believe no one has mentioned that the G2 had this before? Panasonic did not even advertise it.
Now that the G2 can be hacked it could be amazing with the 100 mb/sec MJPEG settings and the teleconversion feature. I think the G2 will increase in value in the near future.
G2 manual page 56 explains how its EZ zoom feature works for Video and Stills.
