E-M1 size comparison roundup.

Share

On September 10 at around 6-7am London time Olympus will announce the new E-M1 camera and 12-40mm f/2.8 lens. Almost all specs are well-known. And we have seen pictures from all angles. So it’s time to post a size comparison roundup to see how big the E-M1 is when compared with other cameras. On top you can see the comparison made by 43rumors reader Iwert (the grip is massive!).

More comparison images can be seen at ThePhotoSoup (GH3 vs E-M1), SLRclub (E-30 vs E-M1) and Dicahub.

One more thing: Olympus will also anticipate the new 40-150mm f/2.8 lens but the final production version will come in 2014 only.

(FT5) New E-M1 image leaks!!!

Share

Something weird is going on. Some anonymous people keeps leaking images of the new Olympus camera by adding an offensive anti japanese text and send them to all rumor sites. I really don’t know who and why these guys are doing that.

UPDATE: our reader Paniko did the long job to remove all offensive text from the images. So here are the images (obviously you see the part that has been removed). Thanks Paniko!

Philip Bloom Pocket BM camera review (And Blooming issue will be fixed by BM).

Blackmagic Pocket Camera Review Part 2: The real world from Philip Bloom Reviews & Tutorials on Vimeo.

Phillip Bloom posted Part 1 and Part 2 of the Blackmagic Pocket Camera review (Click here). Final Conclusion will be posted by Philip soon! By the way Philip, if you read this next time call me when you are in Venice. I am very close to you now :)

And what about the Blooming Issue? At Blackmagic Forum there is an official BM statement:

Hi guys,
As promised, here’s an update on the ‘blooming’ sensor topic.
All sensors, be it CCD or CMOS, will have a ‘blooming’ effect when during severe overexposure, the pixel is over saturated and excessive charges overflow to neighbouring pixels. It just looks different depending on the sensor type.
We are not seeing this on some of our test cameras so it might be something that is calibration related. Please contact your nearest support office and we’ll run another calibration on the camera.
regards
