As you know Lensbaby is already selling the new TIlt-shift lens via Amazon US (Click here). What I didn’t know is that Arsat made a Tilt-shift lens with MicroFourThrids mount! One of those lenses is currently available on eBay (Click here). I tried to found some image samples but I didn’t found anything. Did some of you test the lens?
Our best source told us few weeks ago that Panasonic will come with a surprise. And finally here it is! Panasonic has put up a teaser site for its first Lumix-branded phone! The website is available here: http://panasonic.jp/mobile/lumixphone/.
|Size (when closed)||Height: About 116mm × width: approx 52mm × thickness: about 17.7mm|
|LCD||Full widescreen 3.3-inch VGA LCD|
|Sensor||CMOS Approximately 13.2 million pixels (effective) CMOS|

Panasonic will unveil all details on October the 5th!
UPDATE_1: via Engadget: “It’s also noteworthy that Panasonic’s press release indicates a folding mechanism for this handset, which, given current trends in Japan, makes it most likely to be a clamshell device. It’s also got some DLNA voodoo inside and is coming out by the end of this fiscal year (April 2011) ”
UPDATE_2: Although this is a non-related (m)43thirds news I think this could have signifcant influence on future (m)43 camera development. Can you imagine a GF3/GH3 running on a new OS with API to create dedicated application for the specific camera? Am I the only one dreaming here?
UPDATE_3: It features a new high-intensity flash. Touch-operation is available during shooting and playback. Wi-Fi, microSDHC/SD and easy touch-share operations.

Norman Princen just sent us the following text:
“I attended DV Expo today and sat through the AG-AF100 presentation by Jan Crittenden. I had my GH1 with me and snapped photos of her presenting the charts with intent to post them here. After the presentation, I asked Jan for permission to post my shots of the slides on DVXUser. To my surprise, she offered to give me the original presentation file! So, attached to this message are a link to a picture of Jan presenting the first slide and a link to the entire presentation converted to a PDF for everyone to read. There are a few new nuggets in the presentation, including the new official price of $5,000.”
