Olympus 12mm discontinued at BHphoto…

FacebookShare

Usually there are two reasons why an item gets marked as “discontinued” at BHphoto (Click here). And only one single lens is in Stock at Amazon (Click here). My guess is that there is not enough request for that lens that justifies the $300 price difference between the equal Silver and Black version. It really looks like Olympus want to cheat us on that. They should simply offer the Black lens for the same price and stop.

This may be the Olympus viewfinder of the future…really?

FacebookShare


Back in summer Olympus surprisingly showed their Google Glass version (more on that on CNET). Now I spotted a new patent that combines that futuristic technology with the use of an Olympus camera. The glass works as a sort of a viewfinder positioned directly over your eye. The electronic image appears as soon as the camera will be hold close to it. The Olympus patent describes how this also helps to miniaturize cameras because you will not need any built-in viewfinder nor LCD screen.

You can read the details fo the patent at freepatentsonline.
