Spectacular macros with the Panasonic G1 and 75mm f1.9 Kinotel Anastigmat for macro (C Mount)

I confess, I normally don’t like macro photography. Most of the pictures I see on the web are just boring.
But what I saw today on dpreview forum is amazing! You can find even more spectacular pictures from the same author on flickriver.com. And you know what? They were taken with the “old” Panasonic G1 and the unknown 75mm Kinotel lens. What matters is not the camera…it is you!

Awesome pictures Jerry!

(FT3) new Samsung NX-5 camera? + Samsung vs MicroFourThirds comparisons


Sometimes we receive rumors about other brands. We received some about Samsung which we are going to post here. According to our sources a new Samsung NX camera could be announced soon. Very likely it will be a compact NX camera. One possible leak has been spotted on multitronic.se. They list the NX-5 on their homepage and the NX-5 +18-55mm costs 135$ less than the NX-10+18-55mm combo.

What’s more interesting for us as MicroFourThirds users is that today we found two new Samsung vs MFT comparisons:

1) The HongKong website Unwire.hk made a GF1 vs E-P2 vs NX10 comparison.
2) And there is one more comparison on the very known german magazine der Spiegel: Samsung NX10 vs. Olympus EPL1 (deutsch / google english translation)

P.S.: Today the Samsung NX10 is in Stock at Adorama and BHphoto. So it is official…we are not alone on the earth :)

Sending your request to Panasonic and Olympus

Few days ago I asked you to give me your questions to Olympus and Panasonic. I collected them all and today I wills end the emails to Olympus and Panasonic.
I have no idea if they will really answer you. Many of the questions you made were really detailled and probably they can’t give you a specific answer to future products. I will let you know when they will write me back. I am really “curious” to know what they say.

Reminder…this are your questions:
for Olympus
for Panasonic

Mr. Yoshiyuki Inoue and Mr. Shozo Katagiri form Panasonic interviewed on DSRLmagazine

Really, the spanish DSLRmagazine is becoming one of my favorite websites. They know how to make interviews!

A lot of infos were given by Mr. Yoshiyuki Inoue and Mr. Shozo Katagiri form Panasonic. You can read the google english translation by clicking here.

And here the key points of the interview:
1) Panasonic doesn’t work on a “double-capture sensor” because of the complex patent system
2) No Global Shutter for now :(
3) The new cameras G2 and G10 not only incorporate general improvements to autofocus by contrast, it also will provide better results (especially autofocus speed) with the objectives Four Thirds, when used via adapter.
4) We are not ruling out the entry of new “players” inside the MicroFourThirds world :)
