{?>Olympus E-PL1. On dpreview forum he says that “With the AF light, I can take photos in pitch black conditions using the flash. Normally, this would be impossible. I also added a mode for the light to stay on constantly for video or whatever you desire with a constant light.

Now he wants to teaming up with a manufacturer to produce these device. Contact him if you want to collaborate!

Well don ZappB!!!

(FT5) Panasonic 8mm f/3.5 fisheye to be unveiled next week

According to many rumors we received from different sources Panasonic will launch a the new P&S camera but also the long awaited 8mm f/3.5 fisheye lens. It will be smaller than any other 8mm lens on market (smaller than the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'US')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Olympus 8mm f/3.5 and the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($loc == 'US')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Sigma 8mm f/3.5).

It doesn’t come with optical image stabilizer and it can’t take filter (like the Panasonic 7-14mm).

We don’t know when the lens will be in Stock but we really hope Panasonic will not make us wait too long!

Via Photorumors:
The Panasonic FX75 will have 14MP and a Leica 24mm ultra-wide-angle f/2.2 Summicron lens with 5x optical zoom. The camera will support HD video in AVCHD Lite format. No RAW file format.
