Panasonic GF2 vs Canon 600D — And Panasonic GH2 vs hacked GH1


The video on top shows a funny and not so technical comparison between the Panasonic GF2 vs Canon 600D .

M43photo.blogspot (Click here) posted a more detailed GH2 vs GH1 video quality comparison: “One could be tempted to think that the GH1 gives better video quality, due to the twice as high video bitrate. But the GH2 has other advances…it is reasonable to guess that it samples more pixels as a basis for the video output…the GH2 gives somewhat better contrast and sharpness. The GH1 has slightly washed out colours and that the compression algorithm is better. My conclusion so far is that the GH2, even with lower bitrate, gives slightly better video quality.”

New Olympus E-PL2, Fuji X100 and Voigtländer 25mm reviews

The Olympus E-PL2 has been tested by Electronista (Click here): “We suspect the intended audience will be very happy with the E-PL2. Apart from its jewel-like construction and finish, it’s an amazing piece of hardware for the price and size. The image quality is good for the class, and we saw some important steps forward in the control and visual output. Penpal is something of a novelty, especially at its $60 price, but it could be handy if you’re more interested in uploading to Facebook than an edit in Aperture or Lightroom

The Fuji X100 has been reviewed by Trustedreviews (Click here): “The Fujifilm X100 certainly isn’t for everyone with its fixed lens, sizeable body and even more sizeable price tag. However, its rock-solid build quality, superb image quality – with exceptional low light performance – and more compact stance than an equivalent DSLR means it will have pride of place for many enthusiasts and pros as a back up to their main kit. However, if in the unlikely event that you’re considering this camera without already owning a DSLR, then we’d have to concede that any one of many low- to mid-range DSLRs, such as the Nikon D3100 or Canon EOS 550D, would be a more sensible bet.
Check the current X100 availability at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

POLL: Nikon says mirrorless competes against the compact cameras not against DSLR’s. What do you think?

Nikon said that mirrorless cameras are competing against the compact camera market and not taking away any shares from the DSLR market (via Mirrorlessrumors). Is Nikon talking nonsense or not? We have one of the largets “mirrorless” readers community and it’s about time to ask you if your Micro Four Thirds camera did replace your compact camera or DSLR camera. Let’s see if Nikon is telling us the truth 😉
