CameraKompare, a new iPhone app for you!

Share

J.D. just created a new awesome APP for your iPhone:

Hello,
Thanks for such an awesome site. I’m a longtime 43rumors.com fan and have been an Olympus fan for what seems forever… I started w/E-1 and never looked back, now the E-P1 always has a place in my backpack :-).

Yesterday my iPhone app called “CameraKompare” was approved by Apple:
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/camera-kompare/id377666756?mt=8

The purpose of the app is to have complete specs for almost every digital camera (1400+), and to let you compare any two cameras that you want to. It can also automatically find similar cameras (based on format, size, zoom, etc.) The app has free lifetime updates and I’ll be keeping it fresh as new cameras are release. Currently it has an introductory price of $0.99 USD

And since I am a big EVIL fan, I made sure that the app has every EVIL camera that I know of:

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G10
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1
Sony Alpha NEX-5
Sony Alpha NEX-3
Samsung NX10
Olympus PEN E-PL1
Olympus PEN E-P2
Olympus PEN E-P1
Ricoh GXR S10 24-72mm F2.5-4.4 VC
Ricoh GXR A12 50mm F2.5 Macro

If you think your other readers would find the app useful, I would really appreciate it if you posted about it sometime.

Please keep up the great work and thanks so much for everything!

Reminder: Also the getolympus APP is available on iTunes!

(FT4) Olympus-Kodak sensor partnership?

Rumors about a Olympus and Kodak partnership are floating around the web since a long time. Finally we from 43rumors know something more! According to our sources Olympus will indeed use Kodak sensor in some of their future camera models. We don’t know if at Photokina we will see a Kodak-“powered” Olympus camera, but we are almost certain that it will happen in 2011. The new FourThirds Kodak sensor is a completely new sensor not seen in any camera before. It’s specially designed for the Olympus cameras (Kodak did a special design for the Leica M9 also). Unlike other Kodak sensors which usually are CCD’s the sensor for Olympus should be a CMOS sensor. We should expect a slightly increase of Megapixels compared to the current Panasonic $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>MicroFourThirds if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>MicroFourThirds if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>MicroFourThirds if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>MicroFourThirds if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>MicroFourThirds if ($loc == 'BE')

{ $sel = "1"; ?>MicroFourThirds if ($loc == 'US')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>MicroFourThirds if ($sel != '1')
{?>MicroFourThirds sensor (14-16MPX). Some other infos we received also said that Olympus is testing Fuji SuperCCD and Sigma Foveon sensors. We don’t know yet if they will be ever come to market.

Just my two cent, how cool would it be if with the new modular camera we can switch between Panasonic and Kodak sensors? Awesome idea!

How do you find the image quality of the new Fuji X100?
