(FT3) Panasonic Firmware Update for FZ300, G7, GX8 coming soon?



I just got that anonymous message (Thanks to the source!). He wrote:

“Panasonic will soon release new firmware update about end of November. The new function will be post-focus. It works just like 4K Photo as a photo mode. Camera shoots short 4K MP4 video and user can touch on any area to change focus point and save as JPG.”

Panasonic Lumix GH4 vs Panasonic Lumix GH4R

Irfan:Here’s the new test video on FZ300 4K camera & surprisingly the image quality is really nice. Link:

Mezza:GH4 shoot at Oxford Uni Exam School with a write up of how it went, what lenses we used and using a Letus Helix Jr steadicam device.

David:I’ve recently expanded my brief reviews of lenses and accessories for MFT to include additional lenses and combinations, more photo samples, and a listing of lenses that work well with infrared (not all do), with B&W IR photo samples added for these, at:

Sol:I’ve been shooting with the Speed Booster XL and I wanted to share some details on the pros and cons of using the adapter with the Panasonic GH4:

Rare finding: Rayxar 50mm f/0,75 on the Olympus E-PL5


It’s the first time in nine years I see this. Image samples of the rare Rayxar 50mm f/0.75 super fast lens shot on the Olympus E-PL5 have been posted by Anadrasi on his eBay auction page (Click here to see the images).

That lens is massive and absolutely sexy on the E-PL5.  But I am not sure you can get anything in focus at full aperture!
