5D and GH2 Rolling Shutter comparison (+Slrmagic and Panasonic lens test)


Canon 5D markII vs Panasonic GH2 rolling shutter ocmparison by Mike Kobal.

Steve Huff tested the new SLRmagic 26mm f/1.4 lens on the Olympus E-PL1. Reminder: You can buy them on eBay only (Click here).

Photographyblog reviewed the Panasonic  7-14mm F4.0 Lens. The lens gets highly recommended and not highly recommended mainly because of the high price tag (the performance itself is very good!). But at least in US this is changing quickly. There has been a $150-$200 price drop at Amazon, Adorama and BHphoto.

(FT5) The E-PL1 vs E-PL2 spec differences (1/4000s shutter and eye detection)

A new source sent us the list of new features the E-PL2 has compared to the older E-PL1. Other sources confirmed me that the info is correct. So here is the list:

– on/off switch and grip is different
– Live Guide II for still images and for Movie capture with Rotating Dial
– New “Dramatic Tone” Art Filter and six background Music (Melancholy, Nostalgic, Love, Joy, Cool, Beat)
– 3.0 LCD with 460k Dots
– ISO 6400
– Shutter: 1/4000s
– SDXC Memory Car
– It has Cable Release
– Face Detection with Eye Detect
– 22 Scene-Select Modes
– Accessory Port 2
– BLS-5 Lithium Ion Battery
– And the kit lens is the new 14-42mm Lens II MSC
