(FT3) New dual exposure technique sensor for the GH2?

The website EOShd.com reported what Panasonic engineer T. Azuma’s said during the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco (which took place last week).

Basically Azuma says that Panasonic developed a sensor based on ‘dual exposure technique’ which improves the sensitivity by a factor of 4. This goal has been archived allowing green pixels to be read independently of the blue and red ones on the sensor. They are exposed four times longer than the red and blue pixels.

micro 4/3 adapter for enlarger lens (Rodenstock-Schneider-DURST…)

The Adapter

The italian engineer Adriano Lolli created a new adapter. Original description from his website: “Adapter for obiectives by magnifying with screw thread M39 cameras in 39×1 graft Olympus, Lumix, Panasonic, Leica, etc. with bayonet micro 4 / 3. Allows you to mount all the breeding objectives with M39 thread on graft focamere micro 4/3. If somebody has a lens with a different diameter of thread, please note that we realize every kind of fitting. Also check the draft of your objective for allowing focus properly: it must be put into the range of the values shown in the second photo (from 20 mm to 28 mm). We realize the same adapter for different measures, see article: 3189

Nice! Now we can use our “old” enlarger lens on MFT!

Is that a real 55mm F/1.0 lens with original MicroFourThirds mount?

I just received an email from one of our readers which found that lens on ebay. The description of the owner says: “This lens is 55mm f/1.0~f/11 , was manufactory in Japan by Kowa. Lens rework on Panasonic Lumix G1 GF1 GH1 or Olympus E-P1 E-P2.“. The lens fits on a MicroFourThirds camera without any adapter!

(P.S: The lens is currently in auction)

UPDATED with one more review: E-P2 review at CameraLabs and Focus Numerique (and two new E-PL1 previews)

One of my favorite websites tested the Olympus E-P2. Click here to read the whole review made by CameraLabs! The most interesting part to me is when they talk about the E-P2 versus the new E-PL1: “There’s simply no getting away from the fact the E-PL1 includes the most important aspects of the E-P2 at a lower price and throws a flash in too.

One more E-P2 review has been posted by Focus Numerique (click here to read the google english translation)

UPDATE: One more review has been posted by digitalcamerareview.com.
