CROATIA: SEA, MOUNTAINS AND SINGLETRACKS / first test of preproduction Panasonic G6 from Slavik Petr on Vimeo.
The video you see here on top has been made by 43rumors reader Pert: “I just made a “best of” movie about our mountain bike trip across Croatia captured with a preproduction Lumix G6. So It could be nice feed for your page as a demonstration of great sport and travel abilities of camera. My (2 weeks) work experience with Panasonic G6: very solid 1920×1080 50p / lightweight and flexible = ultimate tool for travel and outdoor / built-in timelapse, wi-fi = less garbage in your bag / “higher shoulders” and grip = better ergonomy than GH2 / I miss more control dials from GH2 and GH3 / I dont like flat buttons.

Laura & Andrea sent me this: ““Figosa” means in Italian “something cool” and this is what we want to pursuit: to make “cool” our photo cameras, giving them a vintage syle! All the Figosa straps are handmade (by us), in genuine leather and available in four colors: black, dark brown, cognac and honey. The metal inserts colour can be gold or silver, as the user likes. We have created Figosa’s page on Facebook, in order to test needs and liking of our customers, in order to test needs and liking of our customers. Currently we have an Etsy shop in order to sell our straps everywhere. Our project is just at the first steps, but we have already received positive and enthusiastic feedbacks from our users! All the straps are handmade and all the materials used are exclusively made in Italy. It is possible to combine the different leather colors with two metal elements kinds (gold or silver). The straps are available in three sizes: small, medium and large.

Gerbrand: “I’ve ordered and received a black 45mm/1.8, and written a quick review on it http://www.gerbrandvanderweg.nl/2013/05/28/lightning-review-olympus-et-m-45mm-f1-8/”
Julien: “Not a rumor but rather showcasing the potential of the GH3. My friend and I spent a month traveling Europe (along Mediterranean and the Adriatic) and we made a video encapsulating our trip. There was so much life that ended up being captured after we picked a shot and filmed, I just loved to film and film. And what else can be said about the GH3? I’ve never had such a better time color grading footage. So glad I brought this camera over the GH2 http://vimeo.com/66435657”
