First Blackmagic Cinema Pocket Cameras will not have RAW.

Auckland In My Pocket – Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera from A Couple Of Night Owls on Vimeo.

43rumors reader Jeff just sent us that message:

Over in the dvinfo.net blackmagic forum, I had the chance to ask John Brawley if he was allowed to comment on RAW yet he responded by saying the camera will likely ship without raw and it will be added at a later date. He’s maintained he hasn’t been allowed to release any footage or info without BMD’s permission. They must have authorized him to make that statement. First time I’ve seen him comment on raw.

Pity we have to wait for the fw update to get RAW recording. Anyway, we will patiently wait for the new firmware as we will had to do for the camera. BHphoto (Click here) changed the status for the Blackmagic camera. It now says “Available for pre-order” and no more “shipping on July 25”. Hope this doesn’t mean it’s delayed. But the camera is worth the long wait. Juts watch that new video sample on top…amazing quality!

P.S.: 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.

(FT5) Definitely a new Olympus MFT lens to be announced in September.

Share

Finally some feedback from trusted sources! One of them just told me that one brand new Olympus MFT lens will be announced in September. He didn’t unveil the specs yet. I hope other sources reading this may share some bits more about it. Anyway, I remember there were rumors about a fast zoom floating around the web. So maybe this one is what is coming now!

I know it’s little info, but this should be just the start of a wave of new FT5 rumors…

Oliver: here is a post of mine for your 43rumor blog’s “reader’s stuff” section. Maybe you are interested in posting the link. Its not about any fancy m43 gear or a dusty, yet beautiful old legacy lens. All pictures, however, were shot with a G1 – showing how one can snap beautiful pictures with even the oldest of the m43 cams. http://500px.com/olli_muc/stories/85759/crossing-the-alps

Jacob:I have come across a site that has some great underwater photos taken with the Olympus OMD – http://footlessfish.com there is also a good link to some street pics with the Olympus 17mm lens on the same site at here.

Andreas:My name is Andreas Fougner Ezelius and I have been following 43rumors for a while. I have started a picture blog in my native language swedish. I have shot four thirds and now micro four thirds. Lots of nature photos with long legacy glass. Feel free to share the blog if you like! Great job on everything else! :) http://www.m43foto.se/

Juan:Hi, I would like to share with you and m4/3 comunity my 2nd part of the m.ZD 17mm f/1.8 review. It’s all about distortion, sharpness, CA, vigneting… and DxO Optcis 8 Pro vs Olympus Viewer 3 images from ORF
No, graphics, no science, no measures, just two images to compare them http://juansinponte.blogspot.com.es/2013/07/olympus-mzd-17mm-f18-ii.html. It’s amazing how different are the pictures taken fron each developer software.
I woul like you ask to the people, what they prefer: HQ optics and pricely withput CA, distortions… or just a lens like the 17mm f1.8 cheap but with software corrections.?
Kholi:You featured another video of ours from the Blackmagic CInema camera and SLR Magic prime combination a few months back. We have another video up we’re sharing of Comic Con San Diego: https://vimeo.com/70746459. Again with the SLR Magic 12 and 25.

Two new E-P5 reviews and brand new Gariz case.

the new Gariz E-P5 case

All different Olympus E-P5 kits are now in Stock and Shipping at Amazon US (Click here). But if you still need to read some more reviews before to buy it than here they are:
There is one review by Kirk Tuck:

It is, without any doubt, the finest digital camera Olympus has ever produced. While I like the feel of the original E1 a bit better the EP-5 runs circles around it in terms of overall imaging performance and the EVF makes it such an intuitive camera that it’s almost invisibly fluid in practice. It’s truly the flagship of the brand.

And the next review has been posted at Pocket-Lint:

Substance and style meld into one excellent camera. If you’re after a compact system camera without a built-in viewfinder then the E-P5 is as good as they come. If a viewfinder is essential then the VF-4 accessory is great, but it might make better financial sense to buy an OM-D E-M5 instead.

And if you want to make your E-P5 substantiably more sexy than take a look on the just announced new Gariz E-P5 case (here on eBay).

If you own other MFT cameras you can find Gariz cases for them too on eBay or Amazon.

(FT3) E-M5 successor to come in September!

Share

And now let’s finally talk about the new Olympus products. We got multiple rumors about an entry level OMD but today one source told us more about the direct E-M5 successor. This one will have the same new EVF as the external VF-4. As a difference with the E-M5 it will have an “actual pronounced grip already part of the body”. The source said the camera is coming in September!

I don’t know yet if Olympus will release both new OMD cameras or just one. I hope to know more about it soon…

P.S.: There will be a FT and a Highe End compact camera too…
