Ballade in Louvain-la-Neuve, with the GH3 from Nicolas Degrave on Vimeo.

First test video by Outbackphoto. 72mbps all-i. test shot with the Nokton 25mm on vimeo. Snow video are ideal to check the dynamic range (vimeo).

By the way, I am getting feed-backs from dealers saying the GH3 is a very highly requested camera. Particularly in Europe. Hpe the production delay in Japane will not delay the good sales start!

Check the GH3 availability by clicking those links: Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay and on Slidoo.

The Gariz new Olympus cap (on eBay or via Slidoo).

I got a short message from an anonymous sources saying “December 14th“. This should be the date Olympus may release the new OMD E-M5 firmware update. May some other source can confirm this?
We have been told that the firmware should add several more options to the menu regarding EVF info and “one exciting feature that is sure to please users. ;)“. My guess as you know is that Olympus will add peaking mode. Let’s see if I am right!

Bye the way, the Gariz lens cap you see on top is availale on eBay (Click here). And so their different colored Italian leather case for the E-M5 (Click here). Full overview on Slidoo.
